Bookish Challenges

Posted 11 February, 2017 by Rinn in Misc. / 8 Comments

I’ve always loved a good reading challenge. I’ve participated in many, and even created some myself. My own have included SFF Award Winners, tackling the Classics and a definitive list of science fiction. Reading challenges are a really great way to read outside of the box, get to that pile of books you’ve been meaning […]

A Guide to 2017 Releases

A Guide to 2017 Releases

Posted 28 January, 2017 by Rinn in Misc. / 22 Comments

When it comes to listing my most anticipated books for the year, I find it pretty difficult. How am I supposed to restrict my choice to just five or ten books, when thousands are published every year? Instead, I’ve decided to create a comprehensive little guide to the ones I’m most excited about, sorted by […]

Burns Night – Books Set in Scotland

Burns Night – Books Set in Scotland

Posted 25 January, 2017 by Rinn in Misc. / 0 Comments

In honour of Burns Night, a Scottish holiday that celebrates the life of Scots poet Robert Burns, I thought I’d share a selection of books set in the beautiful country that is Scotland. So prepare your haggis wi tatties an neeps, pour out a wee dram, and settle down by the roaring fire with one […]

Books Inspired By Works of Art

Books Inspired By Works of Art

Posted 13 January, 2017 by Rinn in Misc. / 6 Comments

Art inspires and moves, art invokes and demands response. Centuries ago, even those that could not read were able to look at and understand, or interpret, works of art. Therefore it is only natural that works of art have inspired works of fiction in turn. It provides the perfect backdrop for a historical novel, an […]

This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for a long time: a comprehensive look into the tools that are super useful for any book blogger. All of these have been invaluable in running my blog and creating new posts, and I want to share them with others. I would also love to hear […]

Goodbye Oxford!

Goodbye Oxford!

Posted 23 August, 2016 by Rinn in Misc. / 10 Comments

Today I am moving away from Oxford. I’ve been here for just over a year, and a few months ago I decided that it wasn’t the place for me – at least, not at the moment. It’s an expensive city to live in, I’ve found it hard to make friends, and even harder to meet […]

Literary Oxford #1

Literary Oxford #1

Posted 26 May, 2016 by Rinn in Misc. / 10 Comments

One of my plans when I moved to Oxford at the end of July last year was to start a new feature on Literary Oxford. Being the inspiration for so many novels, whether it is represented as itself or disguised as a fictional city, Oxford has a rich history in the literary world. But alas, […]

So You Want To Learn About… SPACE

So You Want To Learn About… SPACE

Posted 14 April, 2016 by Rinn in Misc. / 16 Comments

I often find myself wishing that I knew so much more about so many different things. Science, languages, different areas of history… there’s so much that I’m missing out on! Over the past few years I’ve been reading more and more non-fiction to try and fill these gaps, so I thought it would be fun […]
