Why I DNFed The Disgrace of Kitty Grey

Why I DNFed The Disgrace of Kitty Grey

June 20, 2017 Review 10 DNF

Three years ago I wrote a post about how I struggle to DNF books. Since that post I’ve DNFed maybe 3 books out of 250. As you can see, DNFing is still a struggle for me, but when it came to THE DISGRACE OF KITTY GREY it was an easy decision I made at 28%. It had already been sitting […]

5 Things About All Fall Down by Ally Carter

5 Things About All Fall Down by Ally Carter

July 14, 2016 Review 26 ★★★★½

I’ve missed Ally Carter’s writing It’s been a good year or two since I read an Ally Carter novel and I didn’t realise how much I’d missed her writing. It’s fast, it’s fun, it’s addictive.

5 Things About Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

5 Things About Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

May 15, 2016 Review 28 ★★★★

Look at the precious growing up The gang have started to enter their teenage years. They’re growing up, maturing, and entering YA territory. It’s hilarious watching them go through awkward stages, and puberty, and developing little crushes. But they’re also starting to learn more about the world around them and struggle with more complicated¬†ethical concepts (an example is Hermione and […]
