Stacking the Shelves (14) January-Feb Haul

Stacking the Shelves (14) January-Feb Haul

Today I’m taking part in a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. Although the meme is weekly, I only take part once a month as I don’t buy new books that regularly (you should see my huge TBR pile).

This means you can include books you buy in stores or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts, and of course ebooks! If you’d like to take part, simply visit the launch page for all the details, write […]

Top Ten Films I’m Looking Forward to in 2016 (with trailers)

Top Ten Films I’m Looking Forward to in 2016 (with trailers)

2016 looks like a fantastic year for films. Some of my favourite franchises are releasing sequels this year and I’m so excited to see them already. Although with a new baby, we’ll probably have to wait for them to come out on DVD. Here’s a list of the films I’m most anticipating for 2016: 1) X Men: Apocalypse, 19th May. “With the emergence of the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse, the X-Men must unite to defeat his extinction level plan.” I’ve loved the new X Men films so far-the plots and casting have been spot on in my opinion. I’m a big fan […]

B is for Birds #atozchallenge

B is for Birds #atozchallenge

[Carion Crow by Aomorikuma, GNU FDL] Today I’m continuing with the Blogging from A-Z Challenge hosted by Arlee Bird and his team of awesome bloggers. My theme is: Elements and features of speculative fiction and entertainment. So throughout April I will be blogging about characters, objects and themes that appear in sci-fi, fantasy and dystopian series. Today’s post is all about Birds. Birds (both real and fantastical) are a prevalent symbol in religion, mythology and folklore throughout the world, so it’s not surprising that they often feature in fantasy novels. Here are some examples: Phoenix This mythological bird is a symbol of reincarnation, as once it dies it is […]
