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. Last month we read Carol by Patricia Highsmith – keep reading to find out what we spoke about as well as what we are reading for our February meeting! Anyone is welcome to join us.Continue reading “Jan 2021 LGBTQ+ Book Club – Carol by Patricia Highsmith”
January has been a much better reading month than i ever thought it would be. I’ve gotten in to the swing of reading again, and picking up a book is giving me a lot of joy at the moment (which is good because i have a lot to get through). January can go two ways for me usually, a really great reading month, or a questionable one. Here’s what i read in January 2021.Continue reading “January 2021 Wrap-Up”
*Thank you to Penguin for sending me a copy of Lock The Doors for review.
Before this book landed on my door step, i had heard very little about it, and now i can only question why. Lock The Doors kept me hooked, has a great range of characters and discusses some really indepth topics. Here are some of the reasons i think you should pick up Lock The Doors.
I’ve been in a mega reading slump over the last couple of months that I’m only just coming out of.

I’m here to share a few ideas though on how to get out of one!Continue reading “Tips to Beat the Reading Slump”

But hear me out – time is a social construct so yes I am posting a New Year Book Tag when it’s almost February and you can’t stop me! Just wait til I post my 2020 stats in a couple of weeks (not even joking…). I saw this on my pal Lois’ blog and really wanted to do it!Continue reading “New Year Book Tag”
I don’t think i’ve ever posted a post about what my favourite and least favourite reads of a year have been, and i don’t know why. I read and watch so many bloggers talk about what they loved and hated about the previous years reading, and i figured this year i want to look back on what i’ve read, what i loved and what i didn’t.Continue reading “My Best & Worst Reads of 2020”
For the past couple of years, I’ve made reading resolutions in January about the kinds of books I want to read that year. It’s included things like finish a specific series, read more non-fiction, and finally finish Anna Karenina (which I actually did do last year!). 2021 is different however and I wanted to write about my slightly different approach to reading this year…Continue reading “Why I Haven’t Made 2021 Reading Resolutions”
