Top Ten Tuesday: Book Cover Freebie

When you think about buying a new book, and you aren’t sure about what book you’re actually going to buy, a book cover plays a huge part in actually making that choice. I do love a shiny bright cover as much as the next guy. I also love a clever cover, or a new take on a classic. As you can tell, this is an awesome topic for me, so I have taken it and ran with it.

Top Ten Tuesday: Freebie! Desert Island Books

tttIt has been a while, hasn’t it. I have been up to my eyeballs in work lately. Yes, it is all my own fault, I’ve signed up to an excessive amount of overtime, and that will mean lots of money, but it has left me with a very limited amount of time to do things outside of work. Y’know, like remembering to take part in Top Ten Tuesday, oops. Oh well, couldn’t let a freebie week go past now, could I?

Book Travelling Thursday: Happy World Smile Day!

3in1-roald-dahlI’ve left it a little late to post today. I’d love to say it was because I was thinking hard about this week’s theme, but in reality, it was because I spent it on the phone to my Aunt, watching Gilmore Girls, going to the opticians (I apparently have very nice and oxygenated corneas??) and finally, going to Dobbie’s Garden Centre Christmas Evening.

Catía and Danielle set Book Travelling Thursday up with the intention of choosing a single book to encompass the theme of the week, that changes and is posted on the dedicated Goodreads group found here.  Continue reading

Book Traveling Thursdays: A Warm Fall feeling

I feel like all I have done this week is work, and cook pancakes. I mean, it could be worse, but I’m starting to hate pancakes. Anyway, Catía and Danielle set Book Travelling Thursday up with the intention of choosing a single book to encompass the theme of the week, that changes and is posted on the dedicated Goodreads group found here.

T5W: Character’s You’d Want as a Family

118368I got into a real routine with my blogging in August, and T5W and it’s great topics had a role to play in that! As ever, the ladies are coming up with exciting and different topics on books, and this week is no different. I’m not sure I would put this week in my favourite topics list, simply because of how broad it is, and how hard it is to limit to 5! Characters you’d want in a family are nearly impossible to narrow down to 5!

Cardiff

I’ve visited Sarah a couple of times in her natural surroundings, but we have never had a group trip down to see her, and I haven’t been to see her since her relocation to Cardiff. November was the last time we had a group together, so it was prime time to collect in one place, and as Sarah had the flat to herself, we thought we would make the effort to go and see her.
