Bout of Books is back my friends. *dances, twirls, runs round the room with a banner and hooter* Everyone’s favourite low key, awesome, friendly, fun readathon is back in May, so of course I am going to be there. This was the readathon that started them all off for me, and the readathon that re-engaged me with my blog! So, do you like super people, fun challenges, twitter chats, and reading at your own pace, then come aboard for the adventure on May 8th because you’re invited too!! Continue reading
So a month has gone by since I discovered the WWW posts, so I have decided to use that to my advantage and pretend I meant to make it a monthly thing. *shush* don’t tell anyone my secret *shush*. So, yes, what have I been reading? Well, a lot is the answer, thankfully. I have taken part in Tome Topple for the first time (for those of you who don’t know much about it, click here for my updates and info post) and it is going quite well. I have also finished some books lately that have been on my currently reading list since the summer of 2016, so a good blitz was very much needed.
Another month has gone by already. Seriously, where on earth is this year going?? I have finally remembered to post this sort of on time. Wooooo go me! I had little excuse this month. Yes I went away, but I was back a week into the month, and I kept a more careful track of what I actually read, which made it easier to round up and actually see what I enjoyed this month!

As you will probably all be aware, I steal Emma‘s posts and copy them as I have little (read no) imagination for some things. I’ve got pretty good at regularly updating my Goodreads now, but I thought it would be nice to reflect a little at my recent, current, and future reads, and so this post seemed perfect.
WWW Wednesday is currently hosted by Sam at Taking On A World Of Words so pop over to her blog if you want to see more readers’ WWW Wednesday posts.
Last month, I posted the first book haul post of 2017. I have since realised that I have a problem. A very serious problem. You might even call it an addiction. I just love, and can’t stop, buying books. At least I predicted this last time round labelling the post Book Haul #1. I am ‘supposed’ to be limiting the amount of books I purchase in the book department, but I think it is safe to say that particular New Year’d Resolution has firmly gone out of the window already (and we’re only 2 and a half months in). Oops! Continue reading
Yes, yes, I know, this is super late and we are way way into March. I am terrible. In my defence, I was on holiday for the first week of March, so, reallllllly, I’m not that behind. OK, so it probably isn’t true, but that is what I am telling myself to make this seem less late. I can’t believe we are nearly through a quarter of the year already. Time flies. Continue reading
Today is my last day off before I go on holiday. I am firmly on a countdown clock until I go away, and I have just 3 days left in work! I can’t wait. So where am I going, I hear you (jealously?) ask? I am going, with my Mum, to Miami/Caribbean, for almost 2 weeks and I am super excited for some winter sun, and to see more of the Caribbean Islands. And yes, I am already planning which books to take away we with me for the cruise. Continue reading
