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 &…

Ramble #4

It’s been a funny old week! I had some extra holiday left to take, so I had Monday, Tuesday afternoon, and Thursday off work. I still haven’t read any books – doh! – I am reading like 4 at the moment, they’re all very good, I just haven’t managed to finish one yet. On Monday…

Book Haul

I’ve been trimming the fat again and adding more books to the pile. I’ve now split my tbr shame list to represent kindle books, children’s and young adult books and crime/thrillers. Only because my tastes have changed dramatically this year and I wanted to see what I had on my shelves in a clearer way….

Ramble #3

For better or for worse, I have survived this week! I can’t tell you how relieved I am to have survived it all!!! I generally thought I’d never get past all the stress and anxiety I’ve been dealing with the last month and a half, the tunnel was very dark for a long time! I…

What's On My Goodreads List?

November Roundup

I kind of failed this month. I’m used to reading 10+ books a month, usually ending up closer to 20 reads. I didn’t even pass 10 book this month. I ended up only reading 5. I mean, 5 is good but I still feel like a failure for not reading more. November has been pretty…

Rambles #2

This week went so quickly but I’m not entirely mad at it because it brings me closer to December. I started this week off with a bang. After work on Monday, I walked – I kid you not – the 10 steps from my house to the neighbours opposite as they had signed for a…

Ramble #1

I keep having all these thoughts for things to do and say in regards to books. If you follow me, you know how much I can ramble and the thought occurred to me today (Friday 22nd November), why not have a weekly post where I can expel my rambles and thoughts regarding books from the…
