2018 Reading Goals

Each year, I try to set myself specific goals when it comes to reading. These goals can be from how many books I’d like to read, to specific books I want to read. It’s fun to do and actually help keep myself organised, since I have so many books to read for university. While I don’t always read every book that I specifically planned on reading, it’s nice to at least try, and to have a list in my mind of what to read.

Before I ramble on anymore, let’s get down to it! The amount of books I want to read is 23 (you can follow me on GoodReads here!). I know it’s not an awful lot, but with my university workload, it can sometimes be hard to find time to read. Plus, if I end up reading more than 23 books, I’ll feel proud!

The books I’d like to read this year are mainly books that are on my university reading list for next year. However, this time I’ve been quite lucky, and a lot of these books are ones that I’ve been wanting to read anyway, although not all of them are on this list (lol);

  1. Dracula – Bram Stoker. This one is on one of my university modules next year, but is something I’ve wanted to read for a while but never got around to. It’s a gothic classic, so right down my street.
  2. Great Expectations – Charles Dickens. Another book for university; but this one is what I was meant to read this year, but just haven’t yet. Oops… I will read it, though! But I wanted to read this anyway as well, I love Charles Dickens, I think he’s amazing.
  3. A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J. Maas. A couple of my friends recommended this book to me, and one let me borrow it. It sounds amazing and something slightly different for me. I’m very excited to read it!
  4. Everything, Everything – Nicola Yoon. I saw this in cinema last year, and thought the movie was pretty good, but slightly cliché. I heard so many good things about the book though, so I’m willing to give it a go!
  5. It – Stephen King. I LOVE Stephen King!!! The movie adaptions of this were absolutely incredible, and I cannot wait to read the book! I purposely left it until I finish my assignments this school year, though, just so I can concentrate on it more.
  6. The Wasp Factory – Iain Banks. My English teacher in secondary school recommended this book and I’ve wanted to read it since. Ironically, it’s on one of my university modules next year. Perfect! It’s a horror and a classic, so it should be pretty good.
  7. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde – Robert Louis Stevenson. Another book for university. But I’ve heard so many great things that I’m looking forward to reading it anyway. I helped one of my friends with a couple of extract questions before, when she was studying it at GCSE, so hopefully that’ll come to more use.
  8. Romeo and Juliet – William Shakespeare. I LOVE Shakespeare! And call me a typical girly-girl, but this is my favourite Shakespeare play. I don’t care! I think it’s beautiful. And yes, I also love the movie adaption with Leonardo DiCaprio – it’s a clever adaption.
  9. I Am Malala – Malala Yousafzai. This is such an inspiring story and seems as though it will be thought provoking. Truly putting your life in to perspective. I plan on reading more biographies/autobiographies, so this will be a good book to read.
  10. Paul O’Grady’s Country Life. Paul O’Grady is adorable! When I saw this book in Tesco, I had to get it. The photo’s were stunning, there’s some pretty good recipes which I’m sure will be easy to turn vegan, as well as an interesting story.
  11. Treasure Island – Robert Louis Stevenson. A friend recommended this book to me, and I had a copy for Christmas, so I simply must read it now. It sounds like a good read.
  12. Murder on the Orient Express – Agatha Christie. I saw the movie adaption for my birthday (partly because Johnny Depp was in it) and loved it. The story was so well thought-out, and the ending was unexpected. The book must be just as good, if not, better!
  13. Beauty and the Beast – Disney. Obviously, I have to have something Disney on the list! Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my favourite films so this should be a good, quick read.
  14. Selected Poems – Robert Browning. I’m starting to enjoy poetry more and would like to start reading more of it. Browning’s poems are very interesting, so his poems as well as a couple of other poets’ are definitely on my list.

So, there you go, the main books I’d like to read this year! Are there any on the list that you’ve read? If so, what did you think of it/them? And what do you plan on reading this year?

Have a magical day!

Favourite Books I Read In 2017

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and will have an even better new year. It’s been over a month since my last post, but Christmas is a buy time of year – but hopefully I’ll post more this year! Anyway, on with this post!

I read 27 books last year, which, for me, is quite a lot, but this year I would like to read more. Fingers crossed I can do it. Here are my favourite books that I read last year, in the order I read them;


Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – J. K. Rowling.

I’m 99.9% sure I don’t need to say what this is about. But, even though I love the movies, I have never read the books, so I was so happy that I finally began reading it. I enjoyed every bit of it, and only wish I read the series sooner.

Rating: 5/5.

Stardust – Neil Gaiman

You can read my review for this novel here. While I enjoyed this, I have to admit, I slightly prefer the movie, which I don’t say often. I think it was maybe because of the ending.

Rating: 5/5.

Of Mice and Men – John Steinbeck

This is the story about two workers, George and Lennie, who start work on a ranch. They have worked on other ranches previously, but trouble always follows them.

This is probably best known as a GCSE book, mainly because of the ending. But this was actually one of the few books I enjoyed reading for school. I’ve read it twice since studying it, and it never gets old. There’ll be a review on this soon!

Rating: 5/5

Milk and Honey – Rupi Kaur

A quick and insightful read, this book of poetry and prose is about life. Each chapter contains poetry and short stories on different stages of life, which most people would be able to find relatable in different ways. There are drawings on almost every page which are so beautifully drawn in a somewhat different way. You can read my thoughts on this book here and here.

Rating: 5/5.

The Vegetarian Tigers of Paradise – Crystal Jeans

The Vegetarian Tigers of Paradise is a delightful, humorous and serious collection of stories of Crystal’s life. The stories are something that we can relate to; they are nostalgic and show real struggles.

I was recommended to read this for one of my University modules, and I’m so glad I did. It’s so entertaining and I can’t wait to read more of her books.

Rating: 5/5.

Quidditch Through The Ages – J. K. Rowling

One of the books that Harry Potter read for his first year at Hogwarts, this is truly educational. It was a quick, fun read.

Rating: 5/5.

Shakespeare’s Sonnets

I am obsessed with Shakespeare (not at all a cliché of an English student). So reading this was quite interesting and fun. It was nice yet quite sad to see how he changed his poetry as he aged. Obviously, I will be writing about Shakespeare in future.

Rating: 5/5.

The Extraordinary Adventures of Sherlock Holmes –  Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has a fun way of writing and really brings his characters to life. This book was really interesting and gets your mind working.

Rating: 5/5.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets – J. K. Rowling

It’s Harry Potter – of course a bookworm and Harry Potter nerd will enjoy it! It’s a fun, quick, enjoyable read. I just need to read the rest now :O.

Rating: 5/5.

Araby (Dubliners) – James Joyce

I had to read this short story for one of my University modules and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It’s part of a collection of “Dubliners,” so I will definitely read the rest of them!

Rating: 4/5.

The Night Before Christmas – Clement C. Moore

Obviously read on the night of Christmas Eve, this delightful and nostalgic poem is definitely going to become a tradition for me to read. Everyone should read this on the night of Christmas Eve at least. It’s fun and shows you the true meaning and joy of Christmas.

Rating: 5/5.


What were your favourite reads of 2017? And what will you be reading in 2018?


Have a magical year!

Christmas Must Reads

Christmas is in just 26 days! It’s probably the best time of year. The family comes together, the food is great, the music and movies are just beautifully cheesy, the books and poems are wonderful, and the sales are extremely satisfying. You can’t go wrong with Christmas! And reading festive books is a great way to get in the spirit. Before I keep rambling on, here are some festive books which I think you should definitely read!

image via

A Christmas Carol – Charles Dickens

This may very well be the most iconic Christmas novel ever, and one of Charles Dickens’ most celebrated works. Since its publication, ‘God bless us. Everyone!’ has been a popular and well-used phrase. It’s beautifully written, exciting and reminds you of the true meaning of friendship, family and Christmas.

image via

The Night Before Christmas – Clement C. Moore

I haven’t actually read this myself yet, but I’m planning to on Christmas Eve (just to be ironic). This is another classic Christmas read though. From what I’ve heard, it’s well-written, beautiful, festive and magic. It’s a poem, so it’ll be quite a quick read, so there’s no excuse as to why you can’t read it!

Christmas Cookbooks

Christmas recipe books are a great way to get creative in the kitchen. It’ll add a little more ‘oomph’ and jazz to your Christmas, by baking something you haven’t baked before. And any recipe book will do, so you could even get one for free on your Kindle! Me? Well, I love baking so I’m going to try to find time to bake some Christmas tree brownies!


Make A Christmas Wish – Julia Williams

This festive novel is a witty, festive piece about a woman who got knocked down in a supermarket car park and died. She’s sort of ‘floating around’ and so needs to make things right with her husband and son, so that she can move on. It’s different, funny, festive and just a little sad.

image via Amazon

Let it Snow – John Green, Lauren Myracle, Maureen Johnson

This book contains three short stories, by the three different authors, which connect to each other. They are funny, relatable, romantic and, sometimes, unpredictable.

image via Amazon

Frozen: Book of the Film – Sarah Nathan

This isn’t exactly all about Christmas and festivity, but I feel like it counts. And either way, it’s an enjoyable read – plus it’s Disney!


I know there are so many more, but these are just the ones I read (apart from The Night Before Christmas). What are you going to be reading this Christmas?


Have a magical day!

October/Fall TBR!

‘Tis the season for scary and mystery novels! I personally won’t really be reading anything that isn’t for my University course, but if you have the spare time, then I would definitely read these books. They are great for getting in the Halloween mood.

Best Ghost Stories – Charles Dickens

This book is full of ghost stories written by Charles Dickens. This includes ‘A Christmas Carol’ and ‘The Chimes’. So there are some Christmas stories inside, but you could always leave those until November or December.

Stephen King novels

Pretty much any Stephen King novel is suitable for this time of year! He’s such an amazing and talented writer. He writes things that are so thought provoking. ‘IT’ would be a great read this year with the remake not long being released in cinema (which is amazing btw!). I would also suggest ‘Carrie’ and ‘Misery’ though, because they’re so well-written and are far better than the movies – and I love the movies! It’s so cute the way he waffles sometimes, too.

image via tumblr

Frankenstein – Mary Shelley

This classic is a must-read! Shelley is such a talented writer, especially for her time, and I’m not surprised that this novel is so iconic and well-known. At some points, it can drag on, but it’s actually quite necessary.

Dark Shadows Visual Companion – Tim Burton

While this isn’t really a novel as such, but it’s a great quick read. And, it’s also a great excuse to look at pictures, and read about, Johnny Depp, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter!

The Gingerbread House – Carin Gerhardsen

I read this book a while ago, not knowing anything about it, and was pleasantly surprised. It’s a fantastic, thought-provoking horror/mystery, great for Halloween. I wish it was more well-known, because it deserves so much more recognition!

White Death – Daniel Blake

I also read this book a while ago, knowing nothing about it, and was pleasantly surprised. It’s about a serial killer, playing by the rules of a chess game.

Dracula – Bram Stroker

Another iconic scary character/novel! I have yet to read this book, but I know that it’s definitely another great read for this time of year.

image via tumblr

Macbeth – William Shakespeare

As one of the best known plays of Shakespeare, this one in particular would be fabulous to read at this time of year. It has witches, magic, spells, a thought-provoking narrative, blood, death, tragedy! Everything! Yes, it can be hard to understand his plays, and to read plays in general, but after a few pages, it’s easy pops and so worth it. Plus, it’s Shakespeare, he’s awesome!

Welsh Celebrity Ghost Stories – South Wales Paranormal Research

This would be a great read because it’s all associated with Wales (yes, I’m biased because I’m Welsh!) and they’re all true stories. True stories are always quite creepier, so if you’re looking to be spooked this Halloween, this is the way to go.

The Wasp Factory – Iain Banks

I heard about this book because my English teacher was telling my class about how scary it was. So, naturally I went out and bought it. I still haven’t read it, but I’m definitely planning to! It’s about murders and a creepy kid. Perfect for Halloween!

The Visitors – Simon Sylvester

This mystery/fantasy, coming-of-age novel would be great for Halloween. ‘The island always seemed such a safe place. But now it appears that a killer may be living on Bancree.’ Spooky!

Jack the Ripper

An account on one of the most well-known serial killers would be very interesting to read about. It doesn’t have to be about Jack the Ripper, you could read about any serial killer, if that’s what you’re in to. I definitely find it ‘interesting’, I guess, so I will try to fit a book about Jack the Ripper into my reading schedule this Halloween.

Coraline – Neil Gaiman

I recommended this in my ‘Halloween Must-Watch Movies’ (you can find that here: Halloween Must-Watch Movies (Part 1) 😉 ). It’s pretty deep and thought-provoking, plus it’s suitable for all ages.

What are your Halloween/Fall reading recommendations? Do you agree with mine? Let me know!

How To Add A Touch Of Disney To Your Graduation

Graduation is just around the corner for many people, my sister included. It can be a nervous day, so why not make it less scary and more excitable by adding Disney to your special day? After all, it’s quite a unique experience. Right now, you may have no idea what to do next; but chill! Just enjoy your day!

Here are some special ways to add a touch of magic to your day…

Graduation Caps

Recently, decorating your graduation cap has become very popular. You’ve paid for it, so I guess you may as well decorate it as you like.

You could embrace your childhood and go for caps like these;

Or, you could copy some characters. You could go for Sharpay Evan’s fabulous look, from High School Musical 3: Senior Year;


image via tumblr

Or, you could copy Patrick’s look from The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I know it isn’t Disney, but it’s still a cool style, and he’s a book character – Belle would approve of your bookworm style!

image via tumblr

There are so many options!



If you’re not brave enough to decorate your cap, or want to do something more than just that, then Disneybound! It’s another fun, creative thing to do.

You could Disneybound as Sharpay from High School Musical 3: Senior Year. Her graduation look is quite inspiring.

Or, you could go for something more simple. I particularly like this Disneybound idea for Rapunzel;

Add a bow to your outfit!


Bows are the cutest things ever and just scream ‘DISNEY!’ for me! Why not add one to your outfit, somehow? Whether it’s on your cap, your dress, your shirt, your shoes or your bag, it’s still cute. And if you don’t want to add a bow, you could just add a Disney accessory/piece of jewellery!

Disney inspired hairstyle/makeup

Easy pops! Choose your favourite hairstyle and favourite makeup look from whatever character you like, and copy it. Or do something similar.

image via Disney

Watch movies


There isn’t a lot of choice of Disney movies related to graduation, but the few that I know of are worth the watch. There’s High School Musical 3: Senior Year, Lizzie McGuire: The Movie, and An Extremely Goofy Movie. You could even watch some movies that relate to high school, such as Big Hero 6 and A Goofy Movie!

image via buzzfeed


Disney mug

Have your celebratory drink in your very own Disney mug! Your drink will then be the most magical of all.

Say an unhealthy amount of Disney quotes

This will be an emotional day for some, so lighten the mood by embracing your inner Disney Nerd and slay people with quotes and references.

So, whether it’s your graduation or your friends or relatives; good luck and have fun! And keep your head in the game!

‘Milk and Honey’ by Rupi Kaur book review

Rupi Kaur’s ‘milk and honey’ is a poetry book about life. Each chapter is about a different part of life; hurting, loving, breaking and healing. With every other page having a drawing on it, the poems are beautiful and inspirational.

Each poem is very deep and truly makes you think about life with a different perspective. It involves love, trauma, abuse, loss, healing and femininity. There is bound to be some poems every person would find relatable and touching in some sort of way. They are beautiful. moving, and, some, simple. But all are effective.

With a strong, defined theme of femininity, most of these poems are definitely aimed at feminist, or, at least, the female gender. And this isn’t meant to offend men. But I don’t think most men would find certain poems very enjoyable or relatable. Here’s an example of one, just so you can see what I mean:

image via

Some men might like the poems like this, though. But it won’t be for everyone, not even every female will like the poems like this.

There are other poems which carry a deep meaning which aren’t as suggestive as that one, though. So there is something for everyone in this. Here’s an example of one, which has to be my favourite:

image via

I just love how true and realistic it is! Throughout the book there are more poems like this which I think more people need to read. More people need to realise how important this in (even me, I think).

I’m not a huge poetry lover, but lately, I have been. So this was definitely the perfect, quick read – it literally took me about 20 minutes to read, including time to Snapchat some of the poems. I highly recommend this, even if you’re not a fan of poetry!

The best poems from ‘Milk and Honey’ by Rupi Kaur

Milk and Honey is a poetry book written by Rupi Kaur. It’s so amazing, inspirational, deep and real. I haven’t really been one for poetry until just recently, so this was definitely a great read to help encourage me to read more poems. There are so many amazing poems in this book, but here are  just a few I personally loved the most, in no particular order…

“if you were born with

the weakness to fall

you were born with

the strength to rise”


how is it so easy for you

to be kind to people he asked

milk and honey dripped

from my lips as i answered

cause people have not 

been kind to me

Placeholder Image

“she was a rose

in the hands of those

who had no intention of keeping her”


“it takes grace

to remain kind

in cruel situations”


“your body

is a museum

of natural disasters

can you grasp how

stunning that is”


“accept yourself

as you were designed”


“if the hurt comes

so will the happiness”


“love is not cruel

we are cruel

love is not a game

we have made a game

out of love”


“we are all born

so beautiful

the greatest tragedy is

being convinced we are not”

image via

“most importantly love

like it’s the only thing you know how

at the end of the day all this

means nothing

this page

where you’re sitting

your degree

your job

the money

nothing even matters

except love and human connection

who you loved

and how deeply you loved them

how you touched the people around you

and how much you gave them”              

(this one’s in bold because it’s my favourite lol)


“i have

what i have

and i am happy

i’ve lost

what i’ve lost

and i am





“you look at me and cry

everything hurts

i hold you and whisper

but everything can heal

image via

“you were a dragon long before

he came around and said

you could fly

you will remain a dragon

long after he’s left”


“perhaps the saddest of all

are those who live waiting

for someone they’re not

sure exists

7 billion people


he isn’t coming back

whispered my head

he has to

sobbed my heart



“you treat them like they

have a heart like yours

but not everyone can be as

soft and as tender

you don’t see the

person they are

you see the person

they have the potential to be

you give and give till

they pull everything out of you

and leave you empty”

image via

“the one who arrives after you

will remind me love is

supposed to be soft

he will taste

like the poetry

i wish i could write”


“nothing is safer

than the sound of you

reading out loud to me

the perfect date


“i know i

should crumble

for better reasons

but have you seen

that boy he brings

the sun to its

knees every


image via

“my favourite thing about you is your smell

you smell like




a little more

human than the rest of us”


what am i to you he asks

i put my hands in his lap

and whisper you

are every hope

i’ve ever had

in human form


“there is no bigger illusion in the world

than the idea that a woman will

bring dishonor into a home

if she tries to keep her heart

and her body safe”

10 books I recommend

I am a major bookworm, and I love seeing what other people recommend and/or thoroughly enjoyed reading. It’s so interesting to see their opinions about a book you want to read, loved or even hated. So here are ten books that I enjoyed so much and think other people should read too…

The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky

Right now, this is still my favourite book!! It’s so deep and explores depression, and other sensitive subjects in quite a mature and reasonable way. I first read this about four or five years ago now, and it has stuck with me ever since. Even the movie adaption is amazing.

This story focuses on Charlie, and his journey through high school. Charlie has depression, however, and doesn’t make any friends at first. That is, until he meets Sam and Patrick who introduce him to new things, make him feel included and give him confidence.

Harry Potter – J. K. Rowling

I haven’t read the Harry Potter books, but I am currently about halfway through the first one. And from what I can gather, with how brilliant this book is, and with all the hype this series still has, it is definitely worth reading. Needless to say, I wish I read the series earlier; it’s so enjoyable and such an easy read.

Alice in Wonderland/Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass – Lewis Carroll

This timeless classic is such a fun read! It’s poetic, childlike and a lot like the Disney animation Alice in Wonderland. I read these two books quite quickly and enjoyed every moment. However, it can be difficult at times to read, because it sometimes has words which aren’t commonly used nowadays. But with the context, it’s easy to understand.

image via

Of Mice and Men – John Steinbeck

I originally read this when studying it in my English GCSE. At the time, I thought it’d be ‘a boring classic,’ but I couldn’t have been more wrong. It’s such a powerful book, with so many messages, and it’s also such an easy read. The dialogue can be a bit hard to read, what, with their slang, but after a few pages you get used to it.

This story follows two drifters in search of work, who find themselves a job on a ranch. But with one of the drifters, Lennie, having learning difficulties, their life isn’t easy as he keeps losing their job. But now, on this ranch, will things be easier, or will they be the same as before?

The Time Traveller’s Wife – Audrey Niffenegger

This is such a bittersweet book which I read a couple of years ago, after seeing the movie a billion and one times. With passion, love, adventure, and unpredictable scenes, it’s a gripping book. Sometimes it can be difficult to keep up with, due to the points of view and time changing, but soon you get used to it.

Librarian Henry De Tamble suffers from a rare genetic disorder that causes him to drift uncontrollably back and forth through time. Through this, he meets the love of his life, Claire, and they marry. But with Henry’s inability to remain in one time and place, their marriage and life become complicated.

Supernatural: John Winchester’s Journal –  Alexander C. Irvine

Aimed towards Supernatural fans, this journal takes you back to Season 1 of the show. It shows you different demons, John’s struggles, different events of Sam and Dean when they were younger, different spells and tips such as how to perform an exorcism (because who knows when you’ll need to perform one?). It’s the ultimate guide for a Supernatural fan!

I enjoyed this book so much, it was such a fun read and allowed you to get to know the characters more. I’d love to read another Supernatural book like this!

Stardust – Neil Gaiman

After watching the movie countless of times, I finally decided to read the book. It was the best decision I had ever made. I enjoyed it so much! You can check out my review of this book here.

The Penelopiad – Margaret Atwood

I read this book because it was one of the books I was studying at University, in the first term. At first, I was slightly reluctant because I didn’t particularly enjoy the books we had read before this. But I’m so glad I decided to read it, because it was the opposite of what I had expected.

This book follows is a modern retelling of The Odyssey. Following Penelope and the Maids, we hear this story from their point of view. There are slight feminist points made here, but, in my opinion, it makes the book that much better.

Misery – Stephen King

As a huge Stephen King fan, I have recently made it my mission to read all of his books. So far, this is one of my favourites. It’s full of action, suspense and drama, which almost makes it impossible to put down. Literally. I have travel sickness, and I was reading this whilst on a car journey once, and even though I felt like I was going to vomit at any moment, I couldn’t stop reading. Eventually I had to, but still!

Novelist Paul Sheldon is rescued from a car accident by his biggest fan, Annie Wilkes. She dresses his wounds, rescues his work, and gives him pain killers when he needs them. But is she really as friendly as she seems?

The Fault in Our Stars – John Green

Possibly my favourite book by John Green, this follows the story of two cancer patients who fall in love. It’s a fairly realistic and very emotional story, with some (sometimes dark) humour. I cried whilst reading this, and even throughout the whole movie when I saw it for the first time. It’s quite a powerful book and is a very easy read, being that it’s of a Young Adult genre.
