    What I’ve Been Reading This Year

    Today I thought I’d talk you through what I’ve been reading this year. I’ve been a bookworm from a very young age, and I don’t think that will ever change. This year, one of my goals was to read 20 books, I’ve so far read 13 so I’d say I’m reasonably on track. When I recently mentioned the possibility of some reviews, a few of you seemed keen, so here you go. I’m not going to talk about every single book I’ve read so far because that might get a bit much. So here are the ones that have stuck out recently. Everything I Know About Love- Dolly Alderton This book…

    Big Magic Book Review

    So I’m pretty certain this post is my first proper book review. I’ve mentioned books before and briefly given an overview in favourites posts but I’ve never focussed a post solely on one book before. I’m putting it out there now I will go into a bit of detail, but in theory because it’s not fiction there can’t really be any terrible spoilers. You might have heard talk about Big Magic over the last couple of years, and rightly so. I first heard about it through word of mouth from other bloggers and YouTubers, it seems to be a bit of a bible to us online lot. It’s written by…

    Self Care is a big thing nowadays, everyone is telling you to practice it, and for good reason.

To some people self care genuinely is sticking on their favourite candle, running a bath or having a walk. Whereas for others it may be a case of removing themselves from social situations which make them feel uncomfortable or severing ties with toxic people in their life. There is no right and wrong way of doing it,…

    Top Books Of The Year | Blogmas Day 9

    Today I thought I’ talk to you about my favourite books that I’ve read this year. You may have seen a few books dotted around in various monthly favourites posts but I thought it might be an idea to put them all together for you to see. I thought this might be helpful if you are stuck for what to buy someone who likes reading or maybe if you’re looking for things you want to read in 2018 yourself. So the first book that I really enjoyed this year and wanted to mention was The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck. I read this on a plane, I can’t remember…

    Autumn TBR

    You may or may not know but I love to read. During term time I don’t really have as much time to read things that aren’t journal articles about the Third Reich but I try my best to squeeze a bit of reading for pleasure in now and then. My 2 peak times for reading tend to be when I’m on holiday and during the colder Autumn evenings tucked up in bed whilst burning a candle. Luckily we are currently in Autumn and I’ll be going on holiday in a couple of weeks. So I thought that I would discuss which books are on my TBR (To Be Read) list…
