Top Ten Tuesday: The Things That Make Me Read

Alright, Alright, Alright. It’s that time again where I remember that Top Ten Tuesday exists and squeeze a post out after work before I crash into bed. The reason that I have remembered, well, because everyone else in my reader was writing such awesome posts that I just had to join in. Because, let’s face it, why we read is pretty much the most important thing; why we read and how we enjoy it.

For all you lovely people who don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, or don’t know how to get involved. click here. The lovely folks at Broke and Bookish team together to produce a book related topic each week, and you simply list the top ten of that topic. Continue reading

Adulting: Growing Out a Pixie Cut

Until recently, I always had long hair. Not passed my bum long, but always beyond my shoulders and long enough to tie back/braid, and generally do stuff with. I travelled the world, slung it back off my face, and never thought much about it. It just always was, well, long. I thought about cutting it super short regularly during my time at University, and my time travelling, but it never seemed practical. When I returned home, ready to launch into real working life, I went in for the chop and cut my lovely red waist length hair into a pixie crop.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, so, before I launch into this little post/rant, I would like to make a little disclaimer first. I read all of the posts I could find, I asked for advice, I watched videos and tutorials, and I still don’t feel like I understood what this period was going to be like. Continue reading

The Reader’s Questionnaire

So I was having a read through the lovely Jessica’s blog over at Ever the Crafter, and I saw this questionnaire that was floating around a few weeks, well months, well years ago, and I decided to look at this post, and then do it. I am sure it has been passed from person to person, and I am not sure who originally did it, but whoever it was, thanks!

Tome Topple Readathon | Updates

As you may have seen from my earlier TBR post, and my twitter account, I have decided to take part in this month’s Tome Topple Readathon. To monitor my own progress, and keep all you lovely people up to date, I am going to post regularly (ish) here!*

For those of you who don’t know much about this awesome readathon, check out the dedicated Goodreads or Twitter. A brief overview, over the next 2 weeks, the aim is to tackle and read as many books over 500 pages as time and sanity allows!

Tome Topple Takedown TBR

Another month, another readathon, and this time it’s a big one! Yes, it is Tome Topple Time! We all look at big books and find them a little daunting, and a lot less appealing to haul down off the shelves and read. So, to battle that, we take on these beasts together, and tackle the 500+ page books that have scared us off before (or that we just feel like taking on now!)  Whether you read 5 pages, or 5 books, it’s all about tackling those bigger books and have a laugh taking part!

The next round of the Tome Topple Readathon will take place from midnight in your time zone on April 7th to 11:59pm in your time zone on April 20th! Tome Topple Takedown can be found at the Goodreads group handily titled Tome Topple Readathon page, and any progress, updates, or titbits can also be found at the twitter handle @Tome_Topple, so why not join in to?

T5W: Top SFF Books On My TBR

Hi guys! Yes, I know, it has been a while since I have done one of these. I am not super consistent with it, but as I am going through a little bit of a fantasy binge, I thought it was perfect time to dip my toe back in the Top 5 Wednesday pool.
