Bookish Birthday Gifts – Mr B’s Emporium Series

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…

Let’s Talk About Women Don’t Owe You Pretty by Florence Given

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.

February 2021 Book Haul

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.
