TBR Shame Tag

I found this on booklovingnut I thought I was bad with hording TBR books but I think she takes the biscuit!! I definitely don’t have over 200 books waiting to be read but I do have a fair amount!! (Edit: I’ve separated Kindle and Paperback books into two lists. I was getting confused!!) Children’s &…

3 Fact Book News – 12/02/2020

Can’t believe it’s Wednesday already! It doesn’t seem like I’ve done any reading at all! I collected a lot of book this week, or rather, I got a lot of book mail but none of it was for me. I was being proactive in ordering books for birthdays and Christmas 2020. I restricted myself from…

Lord of the Rings – Part 2

Time for part two of my favourite Lord of the Rings fan fiction stories, and I’m not just posting this because I haven’t read anything this week (or maybe it’s a little that!). There are only 9 stories here, from 2017-2018. I’m surprised I haven’t read any Lord of the Rings story since 2018, but…

Theatre Review – Matthew Bourne's Red Shoes Ballet

It’s tradition now that I see a production of Matthew Bourne’s New Directions Ballet every year. This is the third year of seeing a Matthew Bourne production. When I saw that Red Shoes was coming to my local theatre, I knew I had to grab tickets for it. The original fairytale of Red Shoes was…

Ramble #10

This week flew by in the blink of an eye! For some reason I’m listening to the ‘Something Rotten’ soundtrack, despite never seeing the musical. It’s kind of catchy. Perfectly upbeat for this sunny day. So, I actually managed to do myself proud, reading 4.5 books this week! The Defense by Steve Cavanagh – ★★★★★…

#10 Dying Breath by Helen Phifer

The woman’s face was pale and waxy. Her milky, partially open eyes stared into the distance. There were drag marks in the grass; she’d been placed here and posed. Who did this to you and why have they left you like this? When a woman’s body is found on a lonely patch of scrubland, Detective Lucy Harwin is…

Book Haul – The Famous Five

I’ve been doing quite well the last 3 weeks in not buying any books and this month, I’m on a weekly budget of only spending £100. BUT, I couldn’t pass up this opportunity. It’s something that has been on my wishlist on The Book People for over a year and I’ve been waiting for a…

#9 Dark House by Helen Phifer

 shadowy figure in the dark was dragging something heavy behind them. Lizzy pulled the covers over her head, then realised what was being dragged… For years, the Moore Asylum housed the forgotten children of Brooklyn Bay. But now, a man is found murdered in the derelict building, strapped to a steel trolley, launching a heart-racing…

Kindle TBR

The problem I have with Kindle is that I go crazy with “Kindle Unlimited” “Kindle Prime” and “Kindle 99p Sale”, and end up with a ton of books that I actually never end up reading and it just makes my Kindle library look untidy and chaotic. So, I’ve culled my library. I now have 32…

Reading Expectations – February

I’ve actually been planning this post for quite a while – so you don’t have to start thinking I’m crazy with another new blog post!! I try not to have many expectations when reading because I always get disinterested. I’ve done lists of what I want to read in the past and then I’ve avoided…
