The After School Club (I'll Be Home For Christmas anthology) Review

Saturday, 16 December 2017


This isn't like a usual book review on my blog. Sarah from The Little Contemporary Corner asked if I would like to take part in a blog tour for the I'll Be Home For Christmas anthology, and I volunteered to take the stop for Holly Bourne's story, so I'm specifically reviewing that story from the book. 

That's also why today's Blogmas post is a little bit late, because this is a readalong, we've been reading one story a day. So I woke up this morning to read The After School Club and now I'm in tears. 

GUEST POST: Reasons Why I Love Winter... (@aimee_louise_l )

Friday, 15 December 2017


Why I picked this topic is beyond me. For those of you who know me know I struggle with the lack of daylight hours, the dark mornings and the even longer dark nights. So why say you'll write about the reasons you love Winter for, you silly girl?? Truthfully, I still have many reasons why I love Winter even though I'd be more suited as an animal who hibernates through Winter. Let's face it, hedgehogs are cute and they hibernate. Surely I can be cute AND hibernate?

Since we've established that I'd be pretty good at hibernating through Winter I guess you better get yourself a cup of hot chocolate, get those candles lit and get cosy because here are my reasons why I love Winter...

Bookish Naughty List Tag

Thursday, 14 December 2017


Bit of a reshuffle in my schedule because I wanted to get this tag up since I did my YA naughty and nice lists a couple of days ago. Subtle hint to check those out too... This is a tag by Jenn, so go check out her post if you want some more inspiration.

I was tagged in this book tag by Liam, makes sure you go check out his post and his blog too. Liam is new to the blogging game so show some love <3 Now onto the questions!

GUEST POST: Five Stocking Fillers from a Bookshop (Tea Party Princess)

Wednesday, 13 December 2017


If you're a bookworm, you're going to end up in a bookshop at some point. Obviously. So why not pick up a few stocking fillers while you're there? Especially when they're all under a tenner.

Keep reading if you need a few more present ideas from Cora for friends and family this Christmas!

YA Character Nice List

Tuesday, 12 December 2017


Yesterday we had the naughty list, featuring ten YA characters that I think deserve to get coal this Christmas. If I'm being honest, writing the nice list was much harder, not because I didn't have plenty of protagonists to choose from, but because I couldn't think of that many to single out as particularly good. I love a flawed MC but I managed to find a fair few I thought were worthy of the nice list! 

After all it's the nice list not the perfect list.
