Well hasn’t February been an interesting month…. Actually, it hasn’t. In fact, the only interesting thing about it has been the Harry Potter re-readathon! Yes guys, I said it. I did it… well, sort of. I finished the 5th book. I feel that’s a decent attempt but the competitive side of me is disgusted with myself for not finishing all seven.
I did, however, manage to complete my classic and TBR read…OK, fine, so they were the same book – it still counts!

We all know the stories, we all love them. I’ll hold off on reviewing until I complete the entire series.
This Pulitzer Prize winning novel is a Marmite book; you either love it or you hate it. Personally, I loved it. If you have any sense, you will too.
There is a reason why Filer won the Costa Book award 2013 with this debut novel: it’s mesmerising, beautifully written and unique in the way it tells the story of a young man with mental health problems.
