A-Z Book Tag – Blogtober

Book Tag Header

I love doing a tag and I haven’t done one in a good while. I saw Lois from LoisReadsBooks post this one a few months ago and have been meaning to do it ever since. It’s a bit of a longer one but it was a lot of fun (especially since I love making lists and that’s what this felt like!). If you fancy doing this book tag yourself, go for it!

World Mental Health Day – Blogtober

Event HeaderToday is Mental Health Awareness Day which you have probably seen a bit about online – I think it’s really picked up profile in the past couple of years which is amazing! Obviously it’s important to talk about mental health all year round but I think awareness days and weeks are great for highlighting issues and bringing them to the forefront. I thought I’d do a little post about books I’ve read which I think capture mental health issues brilliantly. Of course, this is going to be a bit subjective and some may disagree but these are books which resonated with me in some way.

Children’s Books

I’ve wanted to write a post about children’s books for a while since my nephew, Seth, owns a TON of books. He’s just less than 2 years old and likes a whole bunch of different books. I love reading to him and so do many other people in my family. He loves to cuddle up with us whilst we read to him and has his favourite books that he constantly brings to us even when we’ve just walked in the house! Here’s a few of my favourites that he owns.

Book Series’ I Need to Read

Chat Header

I think we all have those book series’ lying around, unread and neglected. They’re usually bought when they popped up in a charity shop or for a cheap price somewhere. If they’re not on your shelves, they’re on a (often ignored) to-read list. They’re usually quite popular series and everyone goes crazy about them and you’re too busy to read them at the time or you want to wait for the hype to quieten but then its 4 years later!

BEDM: My Favourite Books (and why!)

Chat HeaderFor a while now, I’ve wanted to talk about my favourite books and how much I love them and what it is that I love about them. I’m always really interested in other people’s favourite books and one of the best things is when someone is passionate about something! I’ve decided to choose half of my favourites for this post as I’d like to write about some of my others at a different time in more detail. Continue reading “BEDM: My Favourite Books (and why!)”

BEDM: YA Tropes I Like and Hate

Chat Header

I think this is something we all have. You start to read a book and you see a trope start to happen and the more you read, the more it starts falling into all the stereotypes. Sometimes, it’s great because it’s one you love, be it a guilty pleasure or not. Other times, you have to stop yourself rolling your eyes in annoyance of it. Most of the ones I like are with conditions and it has to be done well. Here are some of my favourites and least favourites!  Continue reading “BEDM: YA Tropes I Like and Hate”
