Happy 2018 everyone! 🎆 As it’s a brand new year, I’ve decided to wise up and find smarter ways to buy books. Here are some of the tips I’ll be sticking to this year- feel free to share some of your own or even some of the resolutions you’ve made for this year!
#1 Buy e-books
They’re usually a lot cheaper than paperbacks, hardbacks and most definitely audio books. Bonus: e-books take up 0 shelf space, and so you won’t have to worry about that ever-growing pile of unread books. Read more
So yesterday was my birthday!!🎈 I am both excited and terrified at the fact that I am now 21…! Either way, it’s a milestone birthday and so I decided to mark the special occasion by doing this cool birthday book tag, I found over on this blog.
Count your birthday along your bookshelf and then subtract your birth month. What book does it land on?
The Help by Kathryn Stockett which is a brilliant book that I’d 100% recommend you read!
A new year, new reading challenges, and of course new book releases!
#1 King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard
This is the very much anticipated third instalment of the Red Queen series! With the cliffhanger that left me with so many questions at the end of Glass Sword, I really cannot wait to dive into King’s Cage. I’ve also kind of (really) missed the Silvers and their petty politics back at the palace, so I’m looking forward to seeing how they’ve been handling recent events. Plus, have you seen all the snippets Victoria’s been teasing us with? If not, be sure to check them out by clicking here because they’ve got me even more hyped for the release! There’s just a month to go, so mark 9th February in your calendars! Read more
I saw this over at Spines and Covers and couldn’t resist taking part!
♫You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch♫
Name a villainous character you couldn’t help but love.
Manon Blackbeak from the Throne of Glass series! I like that despite the risks and inevitable backlash she’d receive, she still always chose to follow through with what she believed in.
♫All I Want for Christmas is You♫
Which book to you most hope to see under your Christmas tree?
Chinese Cinderella by Adeline Yen Mah 🙂
Hey guys! I’m really excited to finally be posting something bookish other than my usual reviews. Below I’ve put together a list of the 5 authors I would love to meet and why. I had a lot of fun compiling this list so I hope you have just as much fun reading it!
#1 Victoria Aveyard
Victoria is really active on social media which is such a bonus for the fans because it’s given us the opportunity to learn a lot about what she’s like as a person and I think most can agree that Victoria is brilliant! Apart from writing one of my favourite books, she has a great sense of humour, seems so down to earth, and spends a lot of her free time answering hundreds of our questions on Tumblr.
One of the things I love most about her though is that she isn’t afraid to speak her mind on a lot of social justice topics. I really admire that as someone who has the ability to reach a larger audience, she is pretty vocal and honest with herself about issues that need to be talked about. She is such a fighter for equality and diversity and so as well as being a great writer, she’s also a thoughtful human being. So I’m glad to support her and of course, it would be a dream to meet her. Read more

If you could turn a book series into a TV show, which would you pick?
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard! There’s lots of action, plot twists, complex characters… plus I think the Silvers with their superhuman abilities would be really popular with a lot of audiences. Read more
Hello and welcome to Full of Bookish Wonder! I’m very excited to have started this blog and cannot wait to start sharing my thoughts on what I’ve been reading, as well as interact with other bookworms!
I first joined Goodreads a couple of years ago and it quickly became my new favourite website. It made the experience of reading so much more interesting; being able to log all the books I’ve read and getting to see all the latest stuff my friends were reading- for a bookworm it was the perfect site. It wasn’t long before I found myself making more and more use of the review system they had in place. I was very much guilty of sneaking away from my uni work to scribble down a few ideas about what I’d like to say for my latest book review. Even my mum would sometimes just peer over at me, busily typing away and knowingly ask, “book review?”
So book reviews were kind of starting to be my thing.
My earlier reviews on Goodreads weren’t the best (haha I hope they’ve improved since) but the more I wrote, the more I realised that I loved being able to just talk about books and explore the journey they took me on.
So why not create a book blog?
My friend had long ago suggested this idea to me but the thought of not having anything creative or original to say always prevented me from actually doing anything. But then I realised hey, it’s all about expressing what I adore, and being able to connect with others who too, share the same love for reading. So here I am, to just enjoy what I love. Hopefully this blog is a reflection of that, and that others are able to enjoy it too.
