Hello lovely people! Today is a very hot day in Manchester (a true rarity) and I’m lucky enough to have a garden so I can sit out in the sun to read and write. We set up an Instagram for our blog around 18 months ago now and I am truly so glad we did. I personally really like Instagram the most out of all the social media platforms out there. I find it to be the most positive, which is heavily down to who you choose to follow, and I enjoy that is is so visual. I’ve been thinking a bit about bookstagram lately and wanted to write my thoughts down. Continue reading “My Relationship with Bookstagram”
I know we have both uploaded our TBRs for the Shelf Help Readathon today and you’ve probably read a similar line to this in Sarah’s post but in case you missed it, we are co-hosting a readathon with our pals Jaz and Sharn!

We’ve teamed up with two of our pals to bring you the Shelf Help Readathon this May! As we’re all stuck in doors and starting at the books that we still haven’t read more, the Shelf Help Readathon is here to help you tackle those old TBR piles!

For me, reading goals are quite flexible and I change them throughout the year. I start with a few intentions at the start of each year however I don’t always stick to these and I change them depending on how I’m feeling and what I’m doing at that point. I thought I’d write a little update (mainly for myself as a little bookish check-in) to see what may have changed and how I’m feeling about my 2020 reads so far.

A few years ago, I watched the film adaptation of Girl, Interrupted and ever since I’ve been wanting to give the book a go. I’ve been very much in a non-fiction mood recently and I’ve been taking advantage of this and reading a fair few non-fiction books on my shelves, including this memoir from Susanna Kaysen! Thoughts below. Continue reading “Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen”
I’ve fallen in love with writing these posts, highlighting a book shop that i have fallen in love with, and want to share more of. In my last post, i talked about The Portal Book Shop, an LGBTQ+ book shop that i found in York on my travels. Today i wanted to talk about a lovely little place that i found somewhere i know pretty well.
