Aisha Saeed & Becky Albertalli in Liverpool

 

I had the most bookish day on leap year possible. It was filled with book shopping, book chats, bookish friends and events. Myself and Lois made our way to Liverpool for the day for a bookish best friend day, and honestly it was absolutely wonderful and incredibly pure.

February 2020 Book Haul – The Book Haul That Never Should Have Been

image12

Happy book haul! I’ve been on a little bit of a buying ban for a while – i say a while, i really mean it’s been about six weeks – and i’m back with another haul, a haul that definitely shouldn’t have been a haul.

July 2018 Wrap-Up

Admittedly i thought i’d get absolutely nothing read in July. It’s YALC month, and also i’ve managed to rope myself in to working full time throughout July, minimising my reading opportunities.
