October 2021 Reading Wrap Up

I’m so glad to report that I managed to get through a bigger stack of books this last month. I’ve been trying really hard to not spend time scrolling through my phone and looking at social media, and instead delving into my books, and I think it’s been working. October’s reading stack has been a… Continue reading October 2021 Reading Wrap Up

September 2021 Reading Wrap Up

Thanks to my blogging break, I’m a little behind in churning out my reading wrap up posts, but bear with. As with August, I didn’t quite manage to go any further than the three book barrier, but I’m determined to smash that target for October. We’ll see though. September, as always, was quite a mixed… Continue reading September 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

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 4th March 2021 is World Book Day, the yearly event that celebrates a love of books. 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. So, I’ve renamed it… Continue reading 6 Monthly Reading Roundup: July to December 2020
