Blogger Book Nook #10: Summer Romance

If you're new to these parts, I recently joined a Facebook book group called Blogger Book Nook. It's a fun online book club but, rather than picking a book for everyone to read and comment on a month, it's based around a theme/genre, so there are no arguments around titles and there's a good chance… Continue reading Blogger Book Nook #10: Summer Romance

Friday Favourites #36

Not gonna lie, this week has been rough. I've found out what it's like to be poorly at the same time as your child - man, is it hard! But there have still been some highlights. Here's this week's Friday Favourites. 1. Being looked after. Yeah, it was 'just a cold', but it was the… Continue reading Friday Favourites #36

Follow Friday #50

Last week I was too knackered to post a Follow Friday, so my 50th(!) post is now a bumper special. Seems rather apt. Looking to experiment in the kitchen this weekend? I've got you covered with loads of new recipes, as well as tips for those wanting to start a bullet journal and a whole… Continue reading Follow Friday #50

A peak at my Amazon wish list

I'm not gonna lie; I have, like, a dozen Amazon wish lists. You've gotta organise your shit, right? Just like with Pinterest! There's one for books, DVDs, Pop Vinyls, homeware, stuff for Jenson... The other day I shared some mini reviews of what I've been reading lately and it got me thinking about all of… Continue reading A peak at my Amazon wish list

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

Item of the day: Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella

Sophie Kinsella has another book out soon! It's not in the Shopaholic series (the next book was teased at the end of the last one) as she is making her foray into the Young Adult world. As already mentioned, I don't have a problem reading young adult titles at my wise old age, so I'll… Continue reading Item of the day: Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella

What I’ve been reading lately #1

It feels like forever since I wrote a book review that wasn't for aliljoy (I just checked and it was for The Fault in Our Stars back in April!) and I average one a week. I plan on getting back to a full post per book but here's a rundown of what I've been reading… Continue reading What I’ve been reading lately #1

Books to read before you die

I just finished reading Company's list of 50 books you need to read before you die and was surprised that I'd only read seven out of the total 50. I like to think I'm particularly well read but then I'm guessing this list is aimed at young women in their late teens/early twenties, rather than… Continue reading Books to read before you die

World Book Day: Women in Literature

In honour of World Book Day, and looking ahead to International Women's Day on Saturday, I thought I'd share some of my favourite women in literature with you. Enid Blyton This woman is the reason I became a book worm at such a young age. At the age of seven, I was reading well above… Continue reading World Book Day: Women in Literature
