I love to read! Here are my book reviews and other book-related blog posts.

I Knew You Were Trouble by Paige Toon

The other day I received Paige Toon’s latest book to review, ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’. Apparently this is the second book in a series, but I still enjoyed it without reading the first one. These books are about a girl called Jessie Jefferson, and her whirlwind life once she finds out her Dad is a famous rockstar. After Jessie has a holiday with her famous Dad in LA, she has to return to the UK for her normal school life. She ends up trying to keep her identity a secret and is very confused about what she wants. I found Jessie quite…

#GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso

I’ve heard a lot about #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso recently, so I ordered it on Amazon to read on the train to London. If people are still raving about it a year after it’s release, I figured it’d be worth a read! #GIRLBOSS is an autobiography of sorts by Sophia Amoruso, the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal. Nasty Gal started out as a small business on eBay, then developed into a multi-million dollar online shop. Sophia is definitely an exception in the world of business! Her passion for vintage clothes is why Nasty Gal was so successful, and that passion is…

Blog Inc. book review & giveaway! ?

Hi! I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but I changed my wordpress theme last night (again – I know I’m crazy ?). I’m a lot happier with it now, but I’m still craving a Pipdig theme… one day! Recently I’ve picked up a few books about social media and blogging, which have been really interesting so far. I reviewed Pinterest Power not long ago, and I’ve also been reading a book about Google+. When browsing for blogging books, I remembered Blog Inc., “Blogging for Passion, Profit, and to Create Community” by Joy Deangdeelert Cho, which had been recommended by other…

Pinterest Power | Book Review

I’ll start off by saying that this book was written in 2012, which I kept in mind while reading it, as some things said are a bit irrelevant now (especially as Instagram is the latest big social media site). I won a copy (and another book about Google+, which I’m currently reading) last year as part of a giveaway, but I went to uni and completely forgot about it until last week. 

Penguin “Little Black Classics”

Penguin “Little Black Classics” This is my first blog post since changing my blog name! It feels weird, but awesome. Anyway, I briefly mentioned in my book giveaway blog post that I ordered a load of the new Penguin “Little Black Classics”. Penguin have released 80 classic books for only 80p each to celebrate their 80th anniversary. Did I mention that they’re only 80p?! Insane.  I would probably order all of them if I could, but for now I decided to get several Classics (Greek and Roman) books because I study Ancient History at Uni, and a few other books that I’ve been…

Penguin Platform provide book recommendations for teens, interviews with authors and other exclusive and fun book-related content. I was also given the opportunity to hold a book giveaway on my blog! 

Splintered by A.G Howard | Book Review

I recently came across the Splintered series by A.G Howard, which is based on Alice in Wonderland. If you knew me, you’d know that I love Alice in Wonderland. Even my Kindle cover has a picture of Alice on it! (pictured below). It’s my all-time favourite Disney film, I love the original book and the Tim Burton adaptation, so of course I had to start reading the Splintered series. I downloaded the first book on Kindle because I couldn’t wait to get to Waterstones to get a copy of it, and I read the whole book within a week. I…
