WWW Wednesday #2: 19th April 2017

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.

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.

Friday Reads: Thank God It’s Friday

Ahhh, That Friday Feeling. I know everyone talks about it, but I feel like I haven’t felt it, in, well, a long while. I have the whole weekend off for the first time (holiday aside) since January. I say off, I have work things to do, housework, building furniture, and of course, it is Mothering Sunday in the UK, so I will be celebrating that with the family. Emma and I have also made grand plans to both read and blog, it’s nice to be able to set a block aside for that sort of thing. Continue reading

WWW Wednesday #1: 22nd March 2017

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.

Friday Reads: I’ve got that Friday feeling

rebeccaI’ve got that Friday feeling today. Y’know the one, where work doesn’t seem to be dragging, your mood is much brighter, and the weekend is here? Yeah that one. Which is weird considering I am going to be in work all weekend, and actually don;t have a day off until next weekend. But there we go. Friday’s can just be that good. I think the lie-in might have had something to do with it?? Continue reading

Friday Reads: Spooooooooky

The nights are drawing in, the clocks go back this weekend, and spooky Halloween activities are in full swing. From next week everywhere will have their full Christmas displays on show, it gets close to my birthday and Thanksgiving, and this year we have the hotly debated and fiercely contested US election results. I can’t believe it’s that late in the year already.

As another Friday comes and goes, I am back to being on my own for the weekend as Emma is going back to Thornaby to visit her family. It’s going to be a little odd to go back to pottering round the house on my own for the weekend. I’m in work on both weekend days, but the time spent in between shifts is going to be spent sorting the house out, reading, and Nano Prep. Continue reading
