What I’ve been reading lately #8

Thanks to my fantastic working relationship with a few fab book publishers and my recently renewed library account, I'm never short of something to read. In fact, my TBR has gotten a bit out of hand and I've had to schedule my reading around library renewals and publication dates. Here's a little look at what… Continue reading What I’ve been reading lately #8

#FeministBookFortnight: A wish list

I re-joined my local library days ahead of Feminist Book Fortnight and now my world has suddenly opened up in terms of reading potential. I've been struggling with a budget recently which has curtailed my spending on anything other than bills and food and now I can read again - beyond the titles which lovely… Continue reading #FeministBookFortnight: A wish list

My life in photos: February 2017

Here's a look back at a cold and stormy February. 1. Presents from Dom (check… Continue reading My life in photos: February 2017

Friday Favourites #33

This week has very much been about appreciating the little things. With the weather too cold and meh to go out and do anything fun, we've spent a lot of time watching (and re-watching) Frozen. Here's this week's highlights. 1. Jenson being cute AF. I know I think he's super cute 99.9% of the time… Continue reading Friday Favourites #33

Friday Favourites #32

How is it the weekend already? This week has flown by; probably because I've gone to bed with Jenson every night this week so there hasn't been any downtime. But he was in bed by 8pm so woooo! Hopefully I can schedule a few posts and finish my book before I crash. Wish me luck!… Continue reading Friday Favourites #32

My 2016 Goodreads Challenge

I'd had a Goodreads account for a while but not really used it until this year. When I was bored I liked to rate books in order to get recommendations but I never used it to track my reading. This year I set myself my first challenge - to read 50 books in 2016. I… Continue reading My 2016 Goodreads Challenge

A Cornish geek’s birthday/Christmas wish list

I've finally done it! I've picked the ultimate gifts for my 29th birthday and Christmas stocking. Is 29 too old to still be doing Christmas lists? I've already been asked by two people if there's anything special I'd like for my birthday (less than four weeks away, FYI - and four weeks before Christmas) and… Continue reading A Cornish geek’s birthday/Christmas wish list

Saturday Share #62

For some reason I haven't bookmarked as many links as usual this week. I'm not sure if it's because my favourite bloggers are off out having a life and enjoying their summer or if my Bloglovin' feed isn't updating properly. Anyhoo, here are my fave posts from this week. Enjoy! Books BuzzFeed have shared some… Continue reading Saturday Share #62
