Wilson in my 20s

I have always been a big Jacqueline Wilson fan - her books were such a huge part of my childhood but I struggled to keep up with them as I grew up and eventually I just kinda seemed to not bother. So here I am at 24 and a half and I have challenged myself to read ALL OF THE BOOKS. I headed to google to find out exactly how many books the Queen had written and no one could give me a good answer, but it's clear that there is a whole load. I do know that it was over 100 in 2014... That's a lot of books.

#BEDN: What you Left Behind - Jessica Verdi

An advanced copy of this book was kindly sent to me for review by the publishers. This book follows super popular, football star (of course) Ryden as he navigates life with a small baby after the death of his girlfriend to cancer. So, it's pretty heavy, though ultimately enjoyable to read.

Forward Slash - Louise Voss & Mark Edwards: Review

I never, ever read thriller/crime books. For a start, I am far too anxious for anything like that, my imagination runs away with me and I cannot handle it. I’ve also never thought it would be something I could find myself interested in. So I have no idea how I ended up with this on my Kindle but after reading it I am so glad I did!

Girl Online: A Review

I’ve only ever seen a few of Zoella’s vlogs and they’re fine. I don’t think I am the target audience, so she is certainly not my favourite vloggers, however as an avid fan of all Youtube culture, it was never in doubt that I would end up reading her debut novel, Girl Online. I read the whole thing in less than 12 hours, and I’m surprised to say that I didn’t hate it.

Attachment: A Review

I loved Eleanor & Park and I’m not sure any Rainbow Rowell book will ever live up to it in my eyes, but of course I wanted to give her others ago. I was really not sure about Attachments until after I had gotten past the half-way mark, which is exactly how I’d felt about Landline.

Codiekinz' Top 10 books of 2014!

I don’t know about you guys, but I love year reviews! Whether that’s the ‘Top 10 news stories of the year’, or even the ‘100 stupidest words that were used in 2015’, I love a nostalgic look back at the year. As this is the year I fell back in love with reading after finishing my degree (yay!) I figured the best review I could do is the 10 best books I read this year! Granted, not many of these books were actually released in 2015, but I read them and loved them.

NaNoWriMo: It begins!

Hello lovely readers! and Happy 1st of November. This marks the start of many things, Movember, the run up to Christmas (because as soon as Halloween is over no one can tell me I can’t be getting ready for the best holiday of the year!) and of course, NaNoWriMo. I’ve been signed up to NaNoWriMo for several years, which has only really meant getting several emails a year and feeling guilty for never actually even starting the project.
