The Week of Reading | Bookish Thoughts #1

I have been in such a reading slump the last month and a half and then something clicked. I got approved for some arcs and I was approached to read and review another. That was that. I haven’t stopped reading and I have loved getting back into my blog, it has become the week of reading. I have really found my rhythm in the last couple of weeks. Don’t you just love it when that happens and you end up […]

The Top 5 of 2018 so far

I usually do one of these around July time, but I thought I would get on the bandwagon early. I know there is usually 10 but I have only read 25 books this year, so you are stuck with a Top 5 of 2018 so far instead. It’s been a busy six months of the year and this year only looks to get busier and busier. So maybe my aim of reading 80 books this year is a tad ambitious, […]

2018 Edition of Books I Need to Read

I have so many books on my shelf that it feels as though I will never be done reading them all. Which isn’t to say that’s a bad thing. Just slightly overwhelming. I have this tendency (I’m currently doing it as I write this post) to reread an entire series, just because, or because a new book in the series has come out and I can’t bear to read the other books until I’ve relived all the hurts and feels. It’s […]

My Bookish Christmas Wish List

I love Christmas, it’s actually my favourite time of the year. I love the festive feel that comes around this time of year. The best part of everything is the shopping and the wrapping and the colour coordination and the twinkly lights. I may not read all the Chrismassy books – you should check out my December TBR – but I just have so much love for this season. I thought about how I wanted to kick off my Chrismassy posts and I […]

My book buying and reading plans

It is safe to say that after my YALC Trip in July my book buying was out of control. I bought so many books and I still had books on my shelves from the last time I went. It was crazy. I don’t have an awful lot of room for my books, but my husband has agreed to me having my own room in our flat for all my books, desk and computer. But the pile keeps growing, and it’s […]

I loved the story and listening to it on audiobook made […]

2017 Most Anticipated Reads

This year is going to be a great one for books, and I thought I would make a list of my 2017 most anticipated reads. The problem with these lists are that I make them and then forget I made it and never look at it again. Then I forget about all my 2017 most anticipated reads and find other amazing books to be read, and then I spend the entire mont of December looking back on what books I […]

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 […]

I know I did a Top 10 Sequels I Wish I Had Read/Bought in 2016 blog post and those are definitely on my list for this coming year, but there are other books. Surprising no? Other books that have sat on my shelf for too long, and I’m calling time. They need to be read or donated either way, they need to be gone. These are the books I just have to read in 2017. Sleepless Young, rich and good-looking, […]
