My reading challenge

I thought it would be a good time to talk about why I don’t have a huge amount of books on my monthly reading list and my reading challenge. Last year I set myself the challenge of reading 125 books in a year which looking back was a complete stretch and I had spent the entire year worrying about whether or not the book I was reading was too long or taking too much time. It became a stressful experience […]

My bookish valentines

I have been a little absent this week, purely because I haven’t been feeling the best, and I just haven’t been feeling up to blogging. I thought I would tell you guys all about my Valentine’s day because I’ve had an amazing time. My fiance is a chef which means that although it would be lovely for him to be home the entirety of the day, it’s just not possible. I spent the morning in bed and had a lovely […]

Audiobooks: My New Love?

I was always the reader who couldn’t use audiobooks to save their lives. Easily distracted and a tiny attention span, I began to fear that I would never be able to jump on the audiobook bandwagon. I tried everything but some kind of boredom took over before too long. It was doomed. I was devastated. Work allowed me to listen to music. After a while I found that the music made my brain numb and it became increasingly more difficult […]

Places I love to read.

Welcome to my places I love to read blog post. I’m the type of person who’ll read wherever she is. Train, plane, bus (although that makes me slightly nauseous) or walking along the street are all places to read. But I have my favourite places, my bed being one. You have to have a duvet though and at least three cushions. I can’t lie down only because I get too comfy and start to fall asleep which defeats the purpose […]
