A girl with a mouth almost as big as her TBR list

Since I haven’t posted lots about me recently, I thought I’d share a bit about how my bookish and bloggy life has been going. This post has no logical order and is just a random jumble of my thoughts.

1. I received a signed copy of Concentr8 by William Sutcliffe from Maximum Pop Books so I’m very grateful for that and excited to read it.concentr8

2. I have had a form about Education on Mental health which has had 28 replies which is awesome. If you still haven’t filled out this form, I’d love you forever if you could fill it out quickly now. You can find it here. This form is just some research before I write a post about the topic inspired by Holly Bourne’s novel Am I Normal Yet?

3. I asked you guys if I should do weekly wrap ups and they answer from Twitter was a resounding yes, as can be seen below.weekly wrap up

4. I have joined in with two #FeminisminYA chats hosted by the lovely Mariam which have been great fun and really interesting, with some great questions. If you too want to join in, they’re on a Tuesday evening at 7:30 GMT.

5. I posted on the other blog I contribute to, The Feministas which discussed whether Halloween costumes are disrespectful or just good fun. I’d love it if you could check that out. You can find it here.


This winter I’m going to be taking part in a fun new challenge called Story Sprites. The rules are a bit complex so I’ve quoted them below, but this should really help me stay motivated to read. Officially this challenge began on the 1st October, so I’m a month but better late than never, hey?

You can find the link here.

1. You can complete any number of the paths. The maximum is 5.

2. Pick your path. Each path is indicated with a color (red, yellow, green, blue and purple). Select books that correspond with the description. And example is listed below:

3. To complete a path, pick a book that meets the requirement for each square and read it. You must read one book PER square. DNFs count, but please try to finish as many as possible. After you are finished with each square of a colour, you have completed a path!

4. As it was mentioned above, you can do just one colour, or all of the colours.

5. Please keep track of your books and your completion. It can be in any format you wish. A blog post, on Facebook, handwritten, Word, or whatever. 

This time’s board is:

Story Sprties Round 2 AutumnI think I’m going to start with aiming to complete the blue path, as I own books that fill all the criteria for that one.

Please recommend any books that you have enjoyed that fit any one of these squares. I’d love your input.
