Sophie’s Favourite Books of 2018 (Blogmas)

chatIt’s nice to reach the end of the year and try and focus on the positives as much as possible. I always love looking back at books I’ve read, films and TV shows I’ve watched and new hobbies/interests I may have picked up. It’s always really fun to remember what new things you’ve discovered and connected with throughout the year!

2019 Bookish Goals (Blogmas)

chatLast year, I set some goals for my reading and I completed barely any of these! To be completely honest, I barely even thought about them! I’ve realised that for me, yearly goals aren’t something I find helpful. They didn’t work for me last year and I’m changing the way I’m setting my goals this year. Continue reading

New Year Reading Thoughts + Book Haul

chat26981371_1633406453373607_582222484_oI thought I’d do a bit of a post about my feelings on the kind of books I want to read this year as well as a bit of a haul.

chat

So a couple of days ago I registered with my local library to get a library card. It isn’t a huge thing to do, I know, but I haven’t had a library card since being a kid, unless you count my university library. To be fair, I did sometimes did get books out to read for fun from my uni one but not very often. I used to love going to the library when I was a child; I even went to a homework club every week for a few months and honestly it was so fun!  Continue reading

BEDM: Fan Casting Book Characters

chatSometimes when reading a book, I picture someone pretty much instantly as one of the characters. It may be the way they are described or their personality but something jumps out at me and I can just imagine a certain actor playing that part. I’ve recently found a few people who don’t like doing this or have never done it and I was intrigued because I just assumed it was natural!  Continue reading
