Yup, Still Alive

And still completely immersed in my PhD research. C’est la vie!

Here’s some random, book-ish things anyway:

  • The absolutely bonkers YA best-seller mystery story that was sweeping Twitter last week, from Pajiba and Book Riot
  • Have you seen the trailer for the new A Wrinkle in Time movie? Ava Du Vernay is an amazing director and I can’t wait to see this!
  • Apparently some dudes in Hollywood want to make an all-female version of Lord of the Flies and Libba Bray, rightly, is basically over there going “been there, done that, my version was better.” (Which it was/is.)
  • A few short days ago, 1 September 2017, was the day of the epilogue from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, when Albus Potter boards the Hogwarts Express for the first time. Meanwhile, I’m still waiting for MY Hogwarts letter….

Happy reading, as always!

Looking for The Librarian Next Door?

I’m still here! Sort of.

Truthfully, I have very little time to “free read” these days and even less time to write reviews of my favourite books. I wish it weren’t so, but that’s what comes with the territory when you’re trying to complete your PhD. I still pop in every now and then to share some book news or favourite bookish quotes. And I do try to keep my yearly reading challenge list updated. But posts are very erratic and unpredictable these days.


I’ll hope you’ll come back every now and then to see if there’s anything new. Happy reading!
