Podcasts are something I never thought I’d be into. I’ve always thought of myself as a very visual and active learner who struggles with just audio as I get distracted with what to do at the same time as listening because I can’t focus on purely audio so I’ve never really given podcasts a fair chance. Recently however, I changed that and wow am I glad! I still have to be doing something while I listen – for example, at my current job we spend quite a while cleaning after the shop shuts, so that’s perfect. Walking or doing my make up are another couple of times I like to listen and can focus. So if you struggle like me with just audio, maybe try listening while doing something else which doesn’t need much focus!
I’m going to do a series of posts on podcasts; recommendations, reviews, read-alongs, those sort of things. First up has to be the whole reason I decided to give podcasts a go; Banging Book Club!

Summary: Sexting. Virginity. Consent. The Big O … Let’s face it, doing it can be tricksy. I don’t know anyone (including myself) who has sex all figured out. So I’ve written a book full of honest, hilarious (and sometimes awkward) anecdotes, confessions and revelations. And because none of us have all the answers, I’ve invited some friends and fellow YouTubers to talk about their sexuality, too.
We talk about doing it safely. Doing it joyfully. Doing it when you’re ready. Not doing it. Basically, doing it the way you want, when you want. So. Let’s do this …
As you must know by now, YALC happened in the last weekend of July and is no officially over for 2017! I had such a wonderful time filled with wonderful people and more running than i’ve done all year. I managed to squeeze in near enough all the things i wanted to get done this year, so here is my weekend summed up!
In June i ended up having a really great reading month, i think that was definitely because YALC stress was setting in. At the start of July i was hopeful for another really great reading month as YALC was the last weekend of the month. Sadly it’s now been and gone (keep an eye out for the mass amount of YALC posts coming your way), but for now, here are the books that i managed to cram in before the end of the month.
I’ve gotten in to the habit now of talking about what i’m reading at the moment, my choices, why i made them and what i like/don’t like. It’s always a little more informal than a wrap-up or something similar. So here are the things that i’m currently reading…
I started watching Hannah Witton on YouTube just over six months ago and she’s one of about four YouTubers I watch. I find her content really fun and interesting as well as educational – something which I haven’t usually found before! It’s kind of important to note here that I don’t usually watch many YouTubers – I’m certain there are many engaging and educational people but I just haven’t watched and expanded my knowledge of them! I’ve read her book, Doing It!, and watched her live show so this post is kind of a two in one review; I think it will be good to review them in relation to each other! Continue reading
