Kindle Haul – So Tiny It’s Almost Not Worth A Mention!!

I did actually start reading a book today, but then work took over. Then there was a power cut which lasted over an hour and my boredom levels hit a new low. I was actually just being sneaky in seeing if any of the books on my ‘birthday books’ wishlist had disappeared. TBH, I can’t…

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…

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…

Wishlist – Instagram

As I was browsing through Instagram at 4am this morning – when my cough medicine wore off and I woke up snotty – I realised that I have been saving posts for a fair few months with books that I would some time like to add to my larger than life tbr shelves. By now,…

Self Imposed Book Ban

Not buying books is so hard!! I haven’t brought a book since my trip to New York in September. It’s a bit of a long shot but I am attempting to read all 60 odd books on my tbr shelves by the end of the year! I didn’t anticipate how difficult it would be not…

Unexpected Turn of Events

So, I had minor surgery on Friday (27/09/2019) and stupidly didn’t think things through. I’ve only had long surgeries with general anaesthetic and didn’t make the connection that I’d be out for the count and out of work all Friday. I did however, expect to be back at work on Monday but I got signed…

Goodreads – Agatha Christie Part 1

I have always loved watching Poirot and Miss Marple on the television. I knew of Agatha Christie and the books she wrote but I never entertained reading them when I was younger. The BBC’s production of the ‘ABC Murder’s’, offered me such a different view of Poirot that it gave me leave to want to…

Goodreads

I present to you a snapshot of my year in books. I have, of course, finished my reading goal of 100 books. I feel both accomplished and relieved that I have completed it. Coming to the end of it hasn’t put me off buying more books than I can handle. If I can at least…

Wist List – Crime & All Sub-Genres

Ok, this list is long!! (even with me trimming it down.) I’ve grouped some books together that are in a series but will still write out all the books synopsis’s. This list will include both the paperback, hardback and Kindle books on my Amazon wishlists. Hunting Prince Dracula (2) by Kerri Maniscalco Following the grief…

Wish List – Stand Alone Books

There are only twelve books in this list which makes it my shortest one. These are books that aren’t part of a series and don’t have a designated spot in any of my other lists. They’re all books that I’ve added this year and when going through the titles, I only got rid of 3…
