My Relationship with Bookstagram

Thoughts HeaderHello 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”

My Favourite Places to Read

Chat HeaderWith everything going on at the minute, I’ve found myself picking up on things I’ve been missing recently, one of which is a simple luxury of reading in different places! I thought I’d write a post about my favourite little spots to read, both very specific places and more general. I’ve always been someone who likes to change up their setting a lot (at university, I used to jump between studying in my bedroom, my friend’s room, our kitchen and the uni library) and lockdown has made me even more aware of this.

Reading Intentions Update

Chat HeaderFor 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.

My Changing Taste in Books

Chat HeaderRecently I’ve been reading quite different books to what I usually pick up. The last few years I’ve mostly read contemporary YA fiction novels but so far this year I’ve been diving into adult and non-fiction books as well as stories set a few decades ago as opposed to recent years. I’m enjoying it very much and I’m loving reading a variety of books! One of my intentions this year was to read whatever I want and jump out of my usual habits and I’m so glad I have.

Podcast Series: Best Girl Grip

Podcast Series HeaderOver the past year I’ve gotten really into podcasts, something I never thought I’d be a fan of but I’ve found quite a few that I love. I’ve uploaded a few posts about these and will continue to upload many more as I’m always finding new ones to enjoy and that I want to shout about. A few months ago, I came across a brilliant podcast named Best Girl Grip focused on women working in the British film industry which is something I’m just starting out in!

What Makes Me Pick Up a Book? – Blogtober

Chat HeaderThere are a ton of reasons to instantly pick up a book or things that attract you to one over another. It might be broad things like genre or particular authors but there are also little things that are ridiculously specific and niche! I think we all have these instant attractions to a certain type of book and I thought I’d go through some of mine in this post. Continue reading “What Makes Me Pick Up a Book? – Blogtober”
