ARC TBR

TBR Header

I very rarely talk about TBR’s (i say this every time i talk about them), because i just hate the pressure of having those books and those books only that you feel like you can read. However, when it comes to ARCs, you do have a time limit you really should read them in. And i’m a little behind.

A little while ago, one of my best friends Charlotte came to stay with us to celebrate Lois’ birthday. It was a weekend of friends, food and book shopping, including a little bit of paint a pot, and it was absolutely lovely. I picked up a couple of books that weekend so figured it was worth a small haul.

Wrap Up Header

I have been waiting for the dip in my reading for a while now, it seems to be going so well i’m guaranteed to hit a slump at some point soon. April is clearly not that time for me! I partly contributed to ARC Attack April, and my goal was to read as many ARCs this month that i could get around to. On top of that, i listened to a couple of audio-books and had our LGBTQ+ book club book to read!

My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma (BEDM)

Book Review HeaderHello all! It’s Blog Every Day in May (BEDM) and we are going to be joining the trend. However, slight difference – we may blog every other day in May as this crept up on us and we are both very busy eggs! Let’s see how we do though – I’m definitely making the effort to try and write as many posts this month as I can. I’ve been feeling pretty inspired to write recently which has been fab so I’m going to take advantage of that. Anyway! First BEDM post is a review of My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma, which is released in the UK tomorrow!  Continue reading “My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma (BEDM)”
