Jan 2021 LGBTQ+ Book Club – Carol by Patricia Highsmith

Our LGBTQ+ Book Club is back and raring to go! We hadn’t stopped but we had a period where we intermittently did them rather than once a month. However, we have planned and organised and we are ready and very excited to be back in the swing of things.

Tips to Beat the Reading Slump

I’ve been in a mega reading slump over the last couple of months that I’m only just coming out of. It’s been very hard to kick and I find it really difficult to get back into reading, and also blogging, when this happens. I’m here to share a few ideas though on how to get out of one!

End of 2020 Reading Wrap-Up

For the first time i think ever, i didn’t post a reading wrap-up in November. I’d honestly been incredibly busy with world, the UK were back in lockdown and i worked through and also i have to admit i’ve been in a little bit of a reading slump. I’ve barely read anything in November so i had no reason to do a wrap-up, so instead, you’ve got a big end of year wrap-up.
