Update (or lack thereof)

Hi guys!

I’m really sorry I haven’t been able to write for the past couple of weeks. I’ve just got back to uni and college from the holidays and it’s been kind of hectic, plus I haven’t got access to the books right now (great planning there I know). Hopefully very soon I will have a moment to get to the library so I can keep going on this re-reading adventure!

What is this?

Welcome! “Rosie Reads and Reads” is a place where I do just that: I read books that I have already read before, and post my thoughts and comments here, one chapter at a time.

Yes, I know it is similar to “Mark Reads”. I don’t care. I hope I will be able to make this interesting enough so that you won’t either.

Some general info about the site:

  • Before I embark on reviewing a series, I will have read the whole lot, and I’m assuming you have too. If you haven’t read the whole series, ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK. I reference other parts of the series A LOT. Spoilers are not marked or hidden in any way.
  • At the moment, I don’t have an update schedule as such, as I’m still working out how much I can do with uni and real life getting in the way. I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and I suggest you subscribe to the site either by email or RSS feed to keep up to date.
  • I’m reviewing a few books at a time, to try and keep things interesting. If this doesn’t work out for me and I have to stop a book for a while, I will let you know.

Okay, enjoy!
