February 2020 Reading Wrap Up

Please ignore the fact that I've accidentally put The Love and Lies of Rukhsana Ali into this photo, when it was in fact part of my¬†January 2020 Reading Wrap Up Part Two. I apparently cannot keep track of my reading properly! I read five physical books this month and one e-book, which is fairly good… Continue reading February 2020 Reading Wrap Up

Book Hauls

Book Haul – March 2020

Most of the books I've bought this month have been for the Women's Prize for Fiction longlist, as I would like to attempt to read all of the nominated books again this year. So far, I have read four of the longlisted books, and am part way through another, so I feel as though I'm… Continue reading Book Haul – March 2020

January 2020 Reading Wrap Up Part Two

  The second half of January saw me do something I have never before felt comfortable doing during my reading journey - I DNFd a book. In the past, I have struggled so intensely with the concept of not finishing books, that I simply have refused to do it. However, this year I felt I… Continue reading January 2020 Reading Wrap Up Part Two

Book Tag – Do I Have That Book?

Recently, I saw BooksandLala's video of this book tag (which was posted in 2018, so yes, I am extremely behind on the times), and thought it looked interesting, so I checked out the original video by Keeping Tabs and decided I would give it a go. Now, obviously I'm not a booktuber, so you will… Continue reading Book Tag – Do I Have That Book?

January 2020 Reading Wrap Up Part One

January has thus far been a mixed reading month for me in terms of the quality of the books I have been consuming. However, there have been one or two stand out books that I have truly savoured, making it easy to ignore the books I haven't enjoyed as much. Between the 1st January and… Continue reading January 2020 Reading Wrap Up Part One

Most Anticipated Releases – January 2020

Before I had a full time job and was independently earning my own money, I wouldn't be researching new releases, because I knew I wouldn't be able to afford them, and my library rarely had them. I would content myself with reading whatever I could find in the charity shops - my local one used… Continue reading Most Anticipated Releases – January 2020

Book Haul – December 2019

In December, I was extremely fortunate to receive some fantastic sounding books from my partner and family for both my birthday and for Christmas. I also purchased some for myself with some birthday money and am excited to share them all with you. I'll be attempting to get to all of these in 2020 and… Continue reading Book Haul – December 2019

10 Least Favourite Books of 2019

On a slightly more negative note than yesterday's post, these are the books I disliked the most in 2019. They may have had problematic elements, I may have found them boring, or they may have angered me in some way. I still own six of them (although they will most likely be off to a… Continue reading 10 Least Favourite Books of 2019

Wrap Up – March 2019

  I read a total of sixteen books this month, which is double my goal of eight books a month, so I'm incredibly happy with what I've achieved. I will break down my reading into four categories: adult fiction, young adult fiction, non-fiction and manga/graphic novels, and will link any reviews and relevant information within… Continue reading Wrap Up – March 2019
