February is the month for books about books, books about doors, books about missing stories, and books that take me away from reality. They're the fantasies I love reading because they remind me why I love books and reading. They're magic. February is dedicated to three books, two of which I finished, and the third… Continue reading February Wrap Up: My Month of Pure Magical Escapism
Hello! Or bonjour, I should say as I am diving into one of the French-inspired Disney classics for Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Books today with The Hunchback of Notre Dame and specifically, God Help The Outcasts, arguably my favourite song from the film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQO4TtmmwNc It's a beautiful track with messages about beating the injustices of everyday society and showing… Continue reading Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Books: God Help The Outcasts
After a week or so's unplanned hiatus, I am back with a post I was inspired to write after reading @SylviaReadsBooks's recent post. As the title suggests, it is all about my anticipated releases from last year and whether or not I have actually read them all. I have 23 books altogether so before I… Continue reading Have I Read My 2019 Anticipated Releases?
We all want the time to sit down and read, but sometimes our lives don't give us that opportunity. We're dashing around from place to place, caring for people or animals, working, studying, trying to keep ourselves healthy or well enough to function etcetera. It's not always easy. However, I know for me, that if… Continue reading How I Fit Reading Into My Day
Reading and books are such a part of us that when we are browsing or hearing about books, certain details will pop out to us and influence whether we want to read them or not. For me, it's those buzz words, phrases and tropes. Someone can say one thing and I'm transfixed in a flash,… Continue reading Book Buzz Words, Phrases and Tropes
Hello! Autumn has come and gone, Winter is here and it is time to warm up in front of the fire. We never really know if we'll have the white winter that creates the most idyllic artwork and scenes, and if we do, it is more likely to cause absolute chaos, but that doesn't stop… Continue reading Cosy Winter Comforts
Hello, and welcome back to what feels like the longest series I have planned and written for this blog. I can't even remember when I started it, but as I said last time, we are on the final stretch! It is time for instalment 8 on the Top 100 YA books according to Goodreads and… Continue reading GR: How Many Top 100 YA Books Have I Read? #8
If you are a sane bibliophile who likes bullet journalling, you stick to one journal a year. Maybe two, if it is only big enough for six months at a time. You are not like me then if you decide to completely scrap your current journal, which is set up for a full year, and… Continue reading Book & Reading Bullet Journal
Not knowing what other posts to write in between my normal blogging features, I was scouring Blogtober posts for inspiration and came across this idea over on Library Looter. I think they were actually in charge for providing prompts for Blogtober, and I wish I could have come across it a few weeks ago because… Continue reading What Were You Reading This Time Last Year?
Besides the torrent of rain we've been subjected to recently, I'm so happy that we're now nearly three weeks into Autumn. It is my favourite season because despite the weather, it is full of warmth and cosiness. I love the rich orange, red and yellow colours of the changing leaves, the crunch of shells beneath… Continue reading Cosy Autumn Comforts
