May/June: It’s a Wrap

OK, it’s been a little bit of time since I last did one of these posts. I was going through my posting funk at the end of May, so it completely slipped my mind to do a wrap host detailing all the books I read that month. I didn’t want it to slip by unnoticed, and I also didn’t want to have a gap on my blog, so I’ve decided to combine May and June on this post. A warning, a heads up, it’s gonna be a long one. Last time I posted a wrap was way back in April (click here to read) and I’ve read almost 25 books over May and June, so there’s lot’s to wrap!

I don’t usually start a posted a bit of a life update, but I decided in this case it is necessary. Over the last couple of months I’ve really struggled with posting, or posting regularly at least, and now I’m struggling to type at all. It’s got nothing to do the content or mental block, about 10 days ago I had a car crash. Don’t worry I’m fine, but it’s left me with a broken arm. Not only a broken arm; a broken right arm. And yes, you guessed it, I’m right handed. One thing this broken arm has taught me is that Google Docs now has a really handy speech recognition facility. It’s not perfect, but I thought I’d give it a go, well a second go, to finally produce the rap post that I wanted to do for a few days. It’s really hard to write and edit a post with a broken arm as it turns out.

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.

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. Continue reading

Holiday Reads

I am sure many of you are aware of Friday reads: blog/tweet/instagraming about what we plan to read on that Friday and over the weekend? Well, a little inspired by Jessica, I decided to take the premise and apply it to my upcoming holiday. I love reading, especially while I am away, and I am planning to take a few books (maybe a couple more than Mum realises) so I thought I would let you all in on my holiday TBR. Continue reading

Friday Reads: It’s almost holiday time!

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
