December TBR | Blogmas #3

Now that the year is ending and I know I’m not going to make my goal of 80 books, which I’m not too sad about especially with everything that has gone on this year and all that I’ve achieved, getting a new job, passing my theory test and my driving lessons. So I’m being ambitious because I’m determined to get back on track with everything, who knows if it’ll happen.  There are quite a lot of books that were on […]

November Wrap Up | Blogmas #2

November has been a really weird month for me in terms of reading and blogging. I haven’t really been feeling myself and I have had a lot on my plate, so I’m behind on my reviews. Especially with my theory test and driving lessons, it’s just been a lot. Reading has not been on the forefront of my mind but here’s a quick recap of the month: I read Renegades this month which I loved, it was definitely one of […]

Hiatus and Announcement!

I have been gone for a little under a week. It wasn’t a planned hiatus but it was definitely a needed one. I have been really struggling with the direction that I wanted The Book Blog Life to head in and the self doubt that came with that. I think because my reading hasn’t been on track for the last couple of months my motivation for writing on here has waned, and I have been struggling with the commitment that […]

Happy Christmas/End of Blogmas | Blogmas Day 25

So it has finally happened, this is my last post of blogmas! I can’t say that it was all easy, sometimes inspiration was hard to come by, almost as bad was finding the time to write all these blog posts. Writing a post everyday was draining, I might do it again but not for a long time! Happy Christmas anyway! I think blogmas has given me the motivation for me to start posting more frequently, maybe every other day and […]

Over Hyped Books | Blogmas Day 23

Being a part of the book blog community is amazing, you meet like minded people and get to have some great discussions about all the books you’ve read. But with that becomes over-hyped books. Books you are told will ruin your life, make you feel all the things, books that will ruin all other books for you. BUT then you read the book and BAM all those expectations come crumbling down and you feel empty. Welcome to the world of […]

Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree | Blogmas Day 20

I haven’t really asked for anything this Christmas, apart from my Erin Condren planner which my mum bought for me. I definitely haven’t asked for books from Santa or anyone, I need to sort through my shelves and see what I need to buy and what I need to get rid off. Which by the way is a huge undertaking. But the books I want Santa to leave for me? Hmm, lemme have a look at the ever-growing list. The […]

The Girl on the Train Book Review | Blogmas Day 17

This book has been sat on my bookshelf for a little while. It was one that I wanted to get to as soon as because I didn’t want the ending to be spoiled. Plus I heard such great things about it that I wanted to jump right in without knowing a massive amount about it. The Girl on the Train has been billed as being the next Gone Girl, and I could see the similarities but in terms of quality […]

My Auto Buy Authors | Blogmas Day 16

There are always authors that I will walk into a bookstore and buy without even thinking, their books are some that I always love or really like. They are always a loving addition to my bookshelf. My auto buy authors. J K Rowling This one is a little obvious, but I have bought, not necessarily loved everything she has written, either as herself or under her pseudonym. Harry Potter will always have a special place in my heart and in […]

A Song of Ice and Fire – Final Thoughts | Blogmas Day 15

I can finally say it, I have managed to read the entire published A Song of Ice and Fire series and I can finally cross it off my personal reading challenge list. There were moments where I questioned whether or not I was going to make it. Or even if I wanted to if I’m honest. This isn’t the easiest of series to get through. In fact it was one of the worst to get through, not for any other […]
