April 2021 Reading Wrap Up

I can’t believe that as I’m writing this, we’re now into May. Where the hell has this year gone? I’m determined to keep smashing through my TBR list, and while I still haven’t quite beaten my record set in February, I still managed what averaged as a book a week, so I think that’s pretty… Continue reading April 2021 Reading Wrap Up

March 2021 Reading Wrap Up

It’s time for another reading wrap up! Also, what the actual F? We’re now in April. I don’t get it. Anyway, as you’ll probably see from this month’s wrap up, I didn’t read quite as many books as I managed to in February, which I’m hoping is in part due to the fact my IBS… Continue reading March 2021 Reading Wrap Up

February 2021 Reading Wrap Up

I thought January was a busy month reading wise - how wrong I was. As it turned out, I spent a lot of February feeling unwell and drained thanks to my IBS and anxiety being constantly in competition for the title of Ultimate Fucking Life Ruiner, so, it meant that I was also spending more… Continue reading February 2021 Reading Wrap Up

The charity’s mission is to ensure that every child has a book of their own so they can discover the joys of reading, and it was an event I loved taking part in when I was at school.… Continue reading How Jacqueline Wilson Sparked My Love of Reading

January 2021 Reading Wrap Up

One of the main things I found hugely beneficial for my mental health last year was reading. It was a chance to escape not only from the crap that was going on in the world, but also my own thoughts too. While listening to music and watching box sets was a great way to relax… Continue reading January 2021 Reading Wrap Up

6 Monthly Reading Roundup: July to December 2020

Regular readers will know for the last few of these twice yearly posts, it’s been 6 Reads in 6 Months - however, with my anxiety taking a bit more of a front seat given the recent events, I’ve certainly been working my way through my bookcase a lot quicker than usual.

6 Reads in 6 Months: January to June 2020

As we enter June, it’s time for another 6 Reads in 6 Months post! It doesn’t feel like that long ago I was putting together my last one, but I guess the last few months have all merged anyway with everything going on.

My Five Favourite Children’s Books | World Book Day 2020

I always remember World Book Day being one of my favourite events when I was at school. It appears to now be a much bigger event at schools here in the UK, with kids dressing up as their favourite characters and schools holding huge events and such, but back when I was a kid, I… Continue reading My Five Favourite Children’s Books | World Book Day 2020

6 Reads in 6 Months: January to June 2019

Last year, I really got back into reading. I’m not entirely sure what stopped me in the first place, but I soon discovered that it was a great outlet for my anxiety. Over time I began to wrack up a long list of titles that I wanted to read, and I figured that I really… Continue reading 6 Reads in 6 Months: January to June 2019
