image6Earlier this month, Sarah posted her YALC 2019 TBR and I’ve been meaning to fully go through all the authors and decide what I want to take with me and what I want to read prior to it. There’s some amazing authors attending and I was so happy when I read the announcements! Continue reading

Struggling with New Releases (BEDM)

chat

Hello! Uploaded this a little later than planned but hey – read it before bed if you fancy it. This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot recently since there are a lot of highly anticipated new releases out already or coming out soon. I’m not very up to date with new books – I rarely read them til months later at minimum! However, I’m trying to change this a little. Continue reading

A Chat about The Perks of Being a Wallflower (BEDM)

I’ve been rereading The Perks of Being a Wallflower for this months book club (Thursday 30th May – come along if you wish!) and I’ve been really enjoying reading it for the third time. It’s different reading it now compared to when I first read it in my teens and then later at maybe 20. I’m now 24 and I still really appreciate it a lot. Continue reading

Dumplin’ Film Chat (BEDM)

Now, I haven’t actually read Dumplin’ but I watched the film on Netflix the other day and I absolutely loved it. A lot of people have recommended me both the book and the film adaptation but I just never fully fancied it. I wasn’t sure if I’d be a fan. However, I’m now right on the hype (better late than never). Continue reading

Where to Buy Books debate (BEDM)

However, I am not okay with people negatively judging people for buying books cheap! This is a slight rant to be honest!  Continue reading

To Be Read or not To Be Read… (BEDM)

chatTBR piles are both a book blogger’s best friend and worst nightmare. Some people love having a TBR pile, some hate it and sometimes it just depends. I definitely fall into the just depends category as sometimes I love the structure of having a TBR for the near future but other times I feel constricted by it. Continue reading

Notes on a Nervous Planet by Matt Haig (BEDM)

I bought this book when it came out, ready for an event for it that we attended about a year ago in Doncaster. We went to another, much bigger one recently at HOME in Manchester which Sarah is going to upload a post on soon. I only just read the book before the HOME event after wanting to get round to it for about a year (we all know how we are with our TBR piles…) and I was really looking forward to it because it seemed really relevant to how I had been feeling the past year or so. Read on for my full review! Continue reading
