August 2021 Reading Wrap Up

I'm apologies for my longer than planned hiatus from blogging. Things got a bit too much - I tried my best to get my blog out twice a week but it just didn't happen. So, I made the decision to take some time off for a bit. Except it didn't really feel like time off,… Continue reading August 2021 Reading Wrap Up

June 2021 Reading Wrap Up

I’ve really gotten into the swing of things when it comes to getting through my reading list. I’ve actually been trying to make an effort to get through a good chunk of my list before I invest in any more books, but it’s easier said than done. Having said that, I’ve managed to avoid buying… Continue reading June 2021 Reading Wrap Up

May 2021 Reading Wrap Up

I still haven’t quite managed to top my record from February, but given the circumstances of that particular month, I’m not complaining. My birthday month meant I was given a rather lovely stack of books which added a fair bit to my TBR list, and combined with my compulsive spending habits, it appears that I… Continue reading May 2021 Reading Wrap Up

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

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. So, I’ve renamed it… Continue reading 6 Monthly Reading Roundup: July to December 2020

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. Since I rediscovered my love of reading last year, I’ve been determined… Continue reading 6 Reads in 6 Months: January to June 2020
