Q&A With Holly Black - The Northern YA Literary Festival

Friday, 16 March 2018

You may remember last month I had Anna Day on my blog in association with The Northern YA Literary Festival, well today I am hosting another Queen and that is Holly Black, author of The Cruel Prince. Her latest novel was released in January and you can read my full review here but to save you time, The Cruel Prince is amazing. 

This post was made possible by The Northern YA Literary Festival which will be taking place next week in Preston on the 24th. More information about the event will be at the end of the post so make sure you read to the end! 

Here we go!

Opinions on opinions in book blogging

Wednesday, 7 March 2018

The other day I saw a lot of hate on Twitter for a book series that I really love and for a minute I actually considered not sharing my love because of the sheer number of people I knew I would be going against.

I thought, there must be a blog post in there somewhere, so I put out a Tweet asking for other peoples opinions and within five minutes I got a lot of responses.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Play Review

Monday, 5 March 2018


January 2017, I finally got tickets to see Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. I'd already read the script half a dozen times but I was so excited that I'd finally get to see it as it was meant to be, live on the stage.. In a years time. 

Fast forward to February 28th 2018, I could hardly contain how excited I was. I'm sure everyone in the UK can sympathise with how bad the weather was last week, I was so delayed getting my train that I ended up missing the first half hour of the play. The staff were great and got us in to watch on a screen in the bar so we wouldn't miss anymore, and we took our seats after intermission. This post will contain spoilers but I have deliberately not gone into detail about the plot/villain, only characters and scenes. I hope you enjoy!
