YA Wrap Up: The Winner’s Trilogy, Summer Skin & Maybe Someday

This year I have once again set a 50 book reading challenge. After a strong start to the year – I got sucked into the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning and binged read most of the books in the space of a month – things have now slowed down a bit. However, this last month has actually been pretty spectacular for me book wise. I read The Winner’s Trilogy (definitely going to be one of my top reads for 2016), Kirsty Eagar’s Summer Skin and finally I branched out and read some NA (New Adult) by Colleen Hoover. Check out my thoughts on them below 🙂

If you had of asked me what my favourite genre was when I was growing up I would have said ‘fantasy.’ But now that I’m older and hopefully a bit wiser, I’ve learnt just why some certain fantasy books were my favourite. They all had something in common, and thanks to my hours getting lost on Goodreads, I’ve realised what it is. They all had a fantastical twist to them but were all grounded in reality.

So if you are looking for a little magic in everyday life then you’ve come to the right place. Here are some of my recent finds of fantastical fiction with a twist…


August YA Reading Wrap Up

I can’t believe that it’s the end of August already. With the end of the year looming, the reading goals I set in January are starting to seem a bit…ambitious. While I have made a sizeable dent in my Goodreads reading challenge I’ve still got a long ways to go. Check out my thoughts on some of the YA books I’ve been reading this month.
