image12

Happy book haul! I’ve been on a little bit of a buying ban for a while – i say a while, i really mean it’s been about six weeks – and i’m back with another haul, a haul that definitely shouldn’t have been a haul. I was determined to not buy books, read from my back list and be really good at the moment. That hasn’t happened and i’m back in a tricky place with my TBR and the fact that it’s huge.

All I Want To Read Is Rom-Coms

chat

I’ve hit quite the reading slump in the last month or so. With a mix of a new job, blog-tober and everything else, i think i had a severe lack in effort to read. I found that a lot of things weren’t making me happy to read too, which have led to some DNF’s that i never expected.
