A life update

So I've been kind of absent in the blogging community for the past week or so. I haven't been commenting as much as I would usually or even at all most of the time. I had some blog posts queued so my posts were still going up but I've now ran out of drafts so I felt like I need to write this post to explain why my blog isn't going to be as active in the coming weeks.

Seeking Mansfield by Kate Watson || REVIEW

This book is apparently a Mansfield Park retelling. I haven't read that so I can't comment but even so I really enjoyed this book. I requested this book on netgalley because of the synopsis. I thought it sounded like a cute contemporary, but I didn't have high hopes for it having not heard anything about it before. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book.

DISCUSSION: How Do You Choose What To Read?

So I know this sounds like a fairly obvious task but I'm curious to know whether choosing a book to read is the same for everyone or whether choosing books is more personal and individual.

Waiting on Wednesday || HUNTED

After writing my Series I Haven't Read/Finished post I realised just how much I'd wanted to read this when it came out. I decided I was in the mood for it and FINALLY picked it up.

Favourite TV Couples

So as well as being a bookworm I am also a TV addict. Like seriously, I watch so many TV shows it's beginning to be a problem. I actually had to stop watching some to focus on others because I was getting too overwhelmed with all the shows I wanted to watch. I had no time for anything! Anyway, the best thing about TV shows (debatably) is your favourite ship, and wow do I have a few! Just a warning if you watch any of these shows are haven't caught up then I'm sorry if I ruin something!

Caraval by Stephanie Garber || REVIEW

Caraval has been everywhere lately, if you've not heard of it then you probably live under a rock. I'd seem a mixed bag of reviews so I decided to read it for myself to see what all the fuss was about. The plot is based around a game called caraval and follows two sisters; Scarlett and Tella. They have wanted to visit caraval since they were children and they finally get the chance, but everything is not as it seems and the game is more than they expected.
