I’m still working out whether wrap-ups are something I want to do each month. On one hand, it seems slightly unnecessary, but then it’s a nice summary to look back on at the end of each month and puts all my reviews for the month in one place for someone to glance at! So I… Continue reading June Wrap-Up
Part of the project of setting up my blog was to try and do a written review of every book I read, because I think the skills, practice and experience that doing that will give me will be extremely valuable.

So here goes! Why did you start this blog? I started… Continue reading Book Blog Newbie Tag
Welcome to my June TBR! The books below are the books I’m hoping to get to during the first half of this month. I’m at university until mid-June and need to get through the books I’ve borrowed from local libraries before I go home! I’m not entirely sure what I’ll choose to read during the… Continue reading June TBR
Hello everybody! My name is Ellie, writing under the username hatterell, and welcome to my blog!
