1 Year Blogiversary

I’ve been taking a bit of a break from blogging these last few weeks. So, if you’ve been wondering where I disappeared to – that’s what happened! Firstly, I had a sinus issue which basically prevented me from doing much at all. Secondly, I finished one job and then started another within a week. It’s… Continue reading 1 Year Blogiversary

Bare Your Bookshelf

I saw the Bare Your Bookshelf tag over @Tomes With Tea and just had to steal it! It’s such a great excuse for shelfies, and I love the questions. It was originally @Paper and Fury. When we moved house last year, I had some idea of turning the conservatory into an open air library… However,… Continue reading Bare Your Bookshelf

Top Ten Tuesday

I’m a day late, I know, I know… Yesterday was complete madness. The last couple of weeks have been madness… I was up at 5am on Monday to get to Newcastle for work - I still don’t feel like I’ve caught up with my sleep. Then on Tuesday, yesterday, I had a barrage of work… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday

The Fall Reading Book Tag

I saw this tag over at Destiny @Howling Libraries and had to pinch it. It just looked so fun, and I'm in a very seasonal mood right now... It originates with @Bionic Book Worm, and I highly recommend (if you haven't already) that you go and check out both their blogs - because they're awesome.… Continue reading The Fall Reading Book Tag

#TBR to be read books
Amy Tintera, Brandon Sanderson, Charles Dickens, Christina Henry, Erin Morgenstern, Helen Lowe, Imogen Hermes Gowar, Jon Ronson, Katherine Arden, Peter Mayle, Rachel Joyce, Tad Williams


Is there anything more satisfying than an enormous, teetering #TBR pile? I’m a mood reader, so I tend to buy books, add them to my TBR, and then get around to them when I feel like it. For which reason, I don’t have a #TBR in each month list. Just one giant all-of-time To-Be-Read! Currently… Continue reading #TBR
