Way back in February, it was my birthday, (there’s a reason i’m telling you all this now) which this year happened to be the month of lockdown. We all had to have a lockdown birthday at some point right? I spent the day with my family and boyfriend and had the most wonderful day honestly. I was also lucky enough to receive some bookish gifts…Continue reading “Bookish Birthday Gifts – Mr B’s Emporium Series”

This post isn’t necessarily going to be a review, however you might take some of my opinions to be a drastic ‘please don’t pick up this book!’ There has been a lot of controversy surrounding Florence Given recently, and whereas I’m not completely clued up on it, before this I had seen her book becoming more and more popular. When I found it on Kindle for 99p as opposed to the usual hardback price, i figured i’d give it a go.Continue reading “Let’s Talk About Women Don’t Owe You Pretty by Florence Given”
In a time that feels particularly right, i recently picked up Rules For Being A Girl. I’ve had it sat on my shelf for some time, and i was drawn to it at the moment with everything happening surrounding women’s rights and safety. This story is a YA novel about a girl in a very different situation than is being discussed in the media at the moment. But the message is still incredibly important.Continue reading “Rules For Being A Girl by Candace Bushnell & Katie Cotugno”
It’s reading wrap-up time of the month again. Last month i took a little more of a relaxed approach to the reading wrap-ups i was doing. Instead of giving you reviews of every book i had read, i wanted to just tell you what i read and wanted to discuss what i found most important. I think that’s the way forward, where really, i just want to document what i read this month.Continue reading “February 2021 Wrap-Up”

So, as usual, i think in my last haul i said i was going to stop buying books, and as usual, they didn’t happen did it. I had my birthday, and honestly when stuck inside during lockdown i’ve found i tend to just buy a lot of books! I didn’t need any of these, almost all were online buys (with the exception of ones i picked up on my weekly trip to the supermarket). I cannot wait to get back in to a real book shop.Continue reading “February 2021 Book Haul”
I’ve been very excited by Dolly Alderton’s debut novel, Ghosts since I heard about it’s release early in 2020. Honestly, it was the cover that drew me in and not much else. I love the art work and knew it was fiction about dating, and that pretty much sold me.Continue reading “Ghosts by Dolly Alderton”
