Welcome to Wonderfully Bookish!


I’m Charlotte and I run this little blog dedicated to all things bookish and wonderful. Whether it’s books, films, TV, productivity, social media, or anything else I’m interested in – this is my place to write about them. You can read my ramblings here.

Very, very soon, Wonderfully Bookish will also become a podcast, and I can’t wait to share it with you! The first few episodes have been recorded and the first one will be out on October 1st, 2018. Keep up to date here!

Finally, just a quick note to say that I’m currently not accepting book review requests. I feel so lucky to receive so many requests, but I just can’t read them all. Keep an eye out on this page though to see when they open again, and get in touch here if you want to work together in another way!

BOOKS


The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James – Book Review

It's probably a well-known fact by now that I adore books about space, especially if they're YA. I stated before that my very specific favourite genre is contemporary YA books about/set in space, and I don't think that will ever change. So when I find a new book that...

Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman – Book Review

I'm currently writing this from a beach in Cornwall while on holiday, which I think is an apt location for a book called Starfish! (And I'm now posting this when I'm back home and it's raining. What a come down.) Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman was a present for my...

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – Book & Play Review

I feel a bit late to the Patrick Ness party. I first discovered my love for his books at last year's YALC, where I met him and got my copy of A Monster Calls signed. I already knew how wonderful he was before I met him, mostly because of his connections with Doctor...

FILM & TV


The Miseducation of Cameron Post – Film Review

I absolutely love when a new LGBT+ film comes out and it gets huge critical acclaim. Recently, The Miseducation of Cameron Post released in selected cinemas and I was so happy that I got to go and see it! I didn’t think it’d be showing anywhere near me, so when I...

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before – Film Review

In the last couple of days, Twitter has been packed full of discussion about a new Netflix film with Asian representation. The film is To All the Boys I Loved Before, adapted from the YA novel of the same by Jenny Han. I haven't read this book series but it's been on...

Love, Simon – A Perfect Adaptation of a Wonderful Book

In the past couple of years, Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli has been HUGE in the book blogging community. People have been loving it, and for good reason! It's full of great LGBT rep, and perfect characters that you can't help but love. You can...

OTHER BITS & PIECES


How to Spring Clean Your Email Inbox

Last week I wrote a post all about spring cleaning your social media, and a few tips to get you started. I was going to include clearing your inbox in the same post, but when I started writing about it, I realised that it was so long that it could be a post all on its...

The Guilty Feminist Blog Tour – What Feminism Means to Me

One type of book I've really wanted to get into more this year is non-fiction. I've got a few books about motivation and self-care, and I've really enjoyed those. When I was asked to join in the blog tour for The Guilty Feminist by Deborah Frances-White, I couldn't...

How to Spring Clean Your Social Media

We all know that spring cleaning is a thing. If we're motivated enough, we clean out houses from top to bottom, declutter our things, and make the place feel a bit... well, cleaner. But how about social media? Most of us use various social media platforms daily, and...
