Ourselves and the lovely Lois of LoisReadsBooks announced a readathon we set up which begins this month, from the 25th October until 8th November 2020. It’s a Crime Readathon as we want to expand our reading of the crime genre and it’s various subgenres.

I’ve not bought many books at all this year (mainly because I’ve not had much money to spend and I’ve been trying to save tbh) but over the past six weeks or so I decided to treat myself to a few and figured I should do a little haul! Sarah also did a book haul the other day which you can catch up on here.Continue reading “A Little Book Haul”
Is this…the first time I have ever done a wrap up? I think it might be! Sarah always does them but I’ve never jumped on this trend. Not necessarily because I haven’t wanted to but just because I’ve never given it a go and I forget to do things like this on a monthly basis.

Thank you so much to everyone who sent us questions and thank you to everyone who supports our blog, whether you’ve read 1 blog post or 50, we appreciate you so much and it means a lot that people enjoy our content.

As we’re all still technically in lockdown, i have officially been in the house for the whole of May. I thought this would help with my book buying habits, but it didn’t really. I’ve half been buying books because it helps me get through being at home, and half been strict with myself because i want to get some books from my backlist read.
