So recently on Twitter we’ve seen a lot of people asking questions about co-blogging or looking into finding a co-blogger. Since it seems to be a popular topic at the moment, we thought we’d do a little FAQ on the topic. We’re not experts but we have both been blogging here together for a few years now, so we think we can definitely give you an insight into it! If you have anymore questions we don’t cover, feel free to ask in the comments.

For me, graphic novels is a new genre I’m venturing into. I always feared that the story wouldn’t be able to come across as well with art as it does with novels but I have been proven wrong a lot lately. Although I didn’t love Mooncakes as much as everybody else, I’m still excited that books like this are being brought into the world as graphic novels about queer witches and werewolves definitely wasn’t common when I was younger.

This is a tag hosted by Taking on a World of Words and is one I used to do a lot so I thought I’d bring it back this week! The rules are to simply answer three questions about your current books and to keep a little tab on what you’re reading next. As I’m currently taking part in my N.E.W.T’s and have an exciting little TBR next month, I’m excited to do some more of these.

So after completing and loving the Reading Rush last month, I definitely wanted to do another readathon this month as it really is the best motivation. I asked around to see which ones were being hosted and I was recommended the Magical Readathon hosted by Book Roast. This is a really complex readathon inspired by Harry Potter and it’s clear how much work has been put into it. However, I hit a slight snag when I found out that I should have first completed my O.W.L’s in April. Even though I’m usually a stickler for rules, I’ve decided to swap them around and sit my N.E.W.T’s first. I’ve also picked the Librarian career to aim towards so here are the books I’ll be reading in August in order to get my qualifications.

So, I swear I’ve been possessed this entire month because nothing else explains the fact that after reading hardly any books this year, I read 18 books this month?! I’d like to think it’s a combination of the Reading Rush, Pride Book Club and pure boredom. I’m super proud of myself and am hoping this continues for the rest of the year. I’ve found some new favourites, did some crying and have almost wanted to throw some books through the window. But anyway, here is what I read this month – Continue reading “Angharad’s July 2019 Wrap Up”
The Fickle Mermaid is a modern, poetic retelling of The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Anderson.
When a young mermaid called Cordelia rescues Nikolai, a stunning but troubled model from a watery grave she becomes besotted with him. Cordelia would do anything to be at his side, including sell her soul to a sinister sea witch.

I’ve decided to attempt my first ever readathon. Am I really doing this? Yes. Do I hate myself? Probably. The Reading Rush originally known as the Booktubeathon is a week long readathon created by Ariel and Raeleen. They have issued seven reading challenges but books can fall into multiple categories and of course, you don’t have to read the full seven. But back to my original point of hating myself, I’ve decided to attempt the full seven. The readathon will start Monday 22nd July to the 28th. So here are the books I will be attempting to read – Continue reading “The Reading Rush 2019 // TBR”
