Book review: The Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carroll

This post contains affiliate links I started bullet journalling a little over two years ago. My first bujo was a lined notebook, which I used to play with what worked for me. I found it therapeutic to sit down in the evenings and make it colourful but that then became difficult to maintain. I took… Continue reading Book review: The Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carroll

What I’ve been reading lately #12

Now that I've finished with the ol' commute for the year, it's time for my final 'what I've been reading lately' of the year. Cos we all know the real reason I work a 90-minute bus ride away is so I actually have time to read! ;) 'scuse the lack of photos for most of… Continue reading What I’ve been reading lately #12

What I’ve been reading lately #11

As of Wednesday, I've finished 62 books so far this year. My Goodreads target was 50, so I reckon that's pretty good going, even though some of them have been on the short side. With four working weeks left of the year, I reckon I can tick off a few more yet. Here are some… Continue reading What I’ve been reading lately #11

Book review: One More Chance by Lucy Ayrton

Earlier this year, I reviewed Lisa Ko's The Leavers, the first title from Dialogue Books, an imprint of Little, Brown. The publishing house is giving a platform to distinctive and marginalised voices, shining a spotlight on stories for, about and by readers from the LGBTQI+, disability, working class and BAME communities. My latest review copy… Continue reading Book review: One More Chance by Lucy Ayrton

What Jenson has been reading lately #4

One of my biggest achievements when it comes to raising Jenson is his love of books. He always chooses a bedtime story (usually the same one on repeat for a few weeks) and at the end he immediately says "read it again!". He's deep in a Paw Patrol obsession at the moment, so we always… Continue reading What Jenson has been reading lately #4

The Writer Says

I love books, but you know what kind of books I really love? Books about other books. And writing. Most writers are readers and there are few things we love more than to find a kindred spirit who understands the struggle of writing. Whether you've just started NaNoWriMo, battled through Blogtober, or are prepping for… Continue reading The Writer Says

Book review: Easy Prey by Catherine Lo

My reading habits seem to be leaning towards the young adult genre lately, having recently read The Hate U Give, Are We All Lemmings & Snowflakes? and now Easy Prey by Catherine Lo. Each one has tackled a different prevalent issue, such as racism, mental health and sexting/online safety, further cementing the genre's relevance and… Continue reading Book review: Easy Prey by Catherine Lo
