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

Podcast Series: #WizardTeam (BEDM)

With my long commutes to work, I’ve been reading a lot more but also listening to more podcasts. AGES ago I did a post called Podcast Series where I planned to start talking about podcasts I enjoy; bookish or other. I didn’t follow through but I’m back with it again now! I’ve struggled to know when I am best listening to podcasts and I’ve now cracked it and it’s best when I’m travelling or walking. This post is about one of my current favourites! Continue reading

Social Media and Blogging (BEDM)

chat
You may have noticed but on our Twitter, which has always been our main social media account, I barely tweet. It’s pretty much 95% Sarah but I have been getting (very slowly) back into it. I still don’t enjoy actually scrolling through but I’m tweeting a little more and replying when I need to. I mainly use our Instagram which we created at the beginning of this year. Read on to see my little chat about how I feel about our social media are blogging.  Continue reading

After the Fire by Will Hill (BEDM)

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_bI picked this up before NYALitFest as Will Hill was going to be there and I thought this book sounded really interesting and quite different. I’m morbidly fascinated by cults (I think most people who I’ve spoken to are) and this is all about a young girl who was in a cult dealing with life straight after a huge disaster. Continue reading

A List Of Cages by Robin Roe (BEDM)

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_b

A List of Cages has been on my TBR for a little bit of time now, and finally, once i saw it in a book shop i decided to pick it up. I knew it would be a fast read and something i could get through quickly, so i was saving it for a time when i wanted something to run through fast. I wasn’t expecting to soak up every word and savour this book so much.
