November & December Reads (2017).

I’d like to say I didn’t read any new books or write any new blog posts in November because I was busy with NaNoWriMo, but that would be a lie. The truth is, I got a puppy whom I wanted to cuddle all the time, and I was just feeling a bit lazy.

I re-read lots of books in November, though!

Girl Up by Laura Bates – This is a great introduction to feminism for teenagers and adults alike. It is primarily aimed at girls navigating puberty but anyone can read it; it’s highly accessible and very funny (though rage-inducing at times).

A Bookish De-Clutter.

Getting rid of books may sound like sacrilege to some of you, but I would very much recommend it. As beautiful as books are, they take up a lot of space and I don’t know about you, but I often buy books that I’m really excited about at the time but when I get it home I’m just… never in the mood to read it.

Here’s a few books I’m getting rid of and why.


The Stolen White Elephant by Mark Twain, The Night is Darkening Round Us by Emily Dickinson, Circles of Hell by Dante, Wailing Ghosts by Pu Songling.

Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty.

My 2017 TBR List and Most Anticipated Releases.

I’m really bad at sticking to TBRs, but seeing as I have 365 days in which to read the following, I’m hoping I’ll get to all of them in that time.

Here are some of the books I’m interested in reading in 2017.


The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.

I have read Cinder, which I really enjoyed, but it’s taken me ages to get around to the rest of the series. I’m usually quite underwhelmed by series and much prefer standalones, but this is one I really want to finish.
