So, I’ve been away for a while, as explained in this post here, but I’ve still been reading as much as I can. It’s just that the internet connection where I am is awful, so I’ve not been able to post as much as I’d have liked to. However, while I have a little free time, I thought I’d post a catch up on everything I’ve read since my absence. Continue reading “2019 | A (Late) Mid Year Goodreads Update”
I originally wasn’t going to address this on my blog at all, having expected only to be absent for a few weeks at most before quickly writing up a bunch of out-of-date posts. However, things have taken an unexpected turn. Continue reading “Telling Tales | A Little Fool Disappears?”
Since starting this blog, there’s been multiple occasions where I’ve considered participating in a Reading Challenge, yet never had the time or thought to research more into it until now. After a few Google searches, I came across the POPSUGAR Reading Challenge, which seems to be a fairly popular choice amongst bloggers.

As a third year university student, I have the misfortune to partake in my degree dissertation, or what my course refers to as an ‘Independent Study’. However, as I’m studying Creative Writing, I get to write a somewhat long creative piece of my own, on a topic of my choice. Basically, I’m using this as an excuse to explore a few of my favourite genres and make my to-be-read pile a little larger. This list mostly consists on retelling of classic literature and YA Fantasy, as my project is somewhat those spliced together. I’ve found a few I’m really excited to read, yet I’ll still include those I’ve already read as I’m planning on studying them a little more. Anyways, onto the list!
Each mention may contain spoilers.
Since I was a child I’ve found solace in books, spending most of my free time within the stories of my favourite authors. After reaching adulthood, I feel it’s time to return to these tales and reminisce of school holidays past. So, in no particular order, here are some of my favourite books as a child.
