2018 Reading re-cap

I'm going to level with you - the next few blog posts are definitely going to be re-cap type posts... I'm sure that appeals to some of you; which is great, but I'm also aware it's kind of boring so if that's not your jam that's cool! I don't know if you remember but I … Continue reading 2018 Reading re-cap

Love your local libraries!

I'm a big reader! I sometimes go through phases of not reading stuff but it's rare and I always feel awful about it so I made a vow to myself to always be reading... again. I have to be honest - I have always loved our local library but I have hardly ever used it. … Continue reading Love your local libraries!

Reading failure [& book giveaway news]

I had such high hopes for my reading this year. I remember the year I read 50+ books fondly. It was an achievement I was sure I could replicate year after year. Of course I didn't, otherwise I wouldn't be writing this post! So far I've only read a handful of books [and one graphic … Continue reading Reading failure [& book giveaway news]

Re-Reading books

Hitting 100 and a book review

This is it, my 100th post, which is pretty good going. For me. Well, not really; I used to have a blog a millennium ago and I can't tell you how many posts I wrote but 100 is decent for this new decade of writing I find myself in. With self-congratulations out of the way … Continue reading Hitting 100 and a book review

Book Covers

Confession time; I judge books by their covers. Obviously the cover of a book doesn't indicate whether it will be good and I wouldn't buy a book just for the cover however I will admit that I'll pick books up just to ooh and aah at the cover art. Book cover designs are, to me, a beautifully … Continue reading Book Covers

Your Intro to Young Adult Literature

Young Adult, or YA as it's more commonly referred to, is a genre of book that kind of broaches the gap between Children's and Adult Literature. It's a minefield of magnificence but if you're looking to get into the genre and you haven't a clue where to start don't worry; I've got your back! I'm not … Continue reading Your Intro to Young Adult Literature
