A bookworm’s wish list

The list of books I want to read grows by the day but I'm not going to include them all in this wish list. Instead, I'm focusing on gorgeous covers and special editions, as well as some rather fun accessories. Anne of Green Gables: V&A Collector's Edition, £9.98 | The Secret Garden: V&A Collector's Edition,… Continue reading A bookworm’s wish list

Friday Favourites #38

I mentioned last week that I've brought back my traditional Friday Favourites for a few weeks while there's no #LittleLoves linky and, I have to admit, I've liked not having the restrictions of the read, watched, heard, made and wore themes. Especially in a week filled with stationery and books. Now that's a good week!… Continue reading Friday Favourites #38

Book review: I’d Rather Be Reading by Guinevere De La Mare

To say I'm a bit of a bookworm would be a massive understatement. I always carry a book with me, I average a book a week, my bookshelves are overflowing and I can spend an hour just browsing a bookstore. And I'm pleased to say that I've found the perfect gift for the bookworm in… Continue reading Book review: I’d Rather Be Reading by Guinevere De La Mare

Follow Friday #19

Each morning I scroll through my Bloglovin feed, marking the less interesting posts as unread and vowing to get through the rest later. It almost never happens. Now I'm changing things up and saving the more interesting looking ones to a list to be read later - so they don't fall off my feed. I… Continue reading Follow Friday #19

The ‘Would You Rather’ book tag

I've been tagged by Manchester Flick Chick in a book tag and you know I love me a tag. I just can't help sharing! Here's the lowdown on me and my reading habits. Would you rather only read trilogies or only read standalones? I often get emotionally invested in characters and want to know more,… Continue reading The ‘Would You Rather’ book tag

A conversation with Kate Beaufoy

I was lucky enough to be able to read and review Kate Beaufoy's Another Heartbeat in the House ahead of its release earlier this month. I was particularly taken with the literary references within the novel and had the opportunity to quiz Kate on her literary inspiration. You can read the interview below. Emma: In… Continue reading A conversation with Kate Beaufoy
