I’ve made some bad decisions in my life, some minor, and some incredibly huge. Me deciding to go on a two day ‘book bender’ to London, alone and unsupervised, was somewhere in between minor and incredibly huge.

London Weekend & Waitress Musical! (BEDM)

chatThis weekend, I went to London with my girlfriend to see the musical, Waitress, which I’ve wanted to see for a good few months. The soundtrack is one of my favourites and I couldn’t wait to see the story and songs performed. I also visited the Natural History Museum for the first time which was fab and stayed at a wonderful Airbnb! Thought I’d do a little wrap up of my trip including a couple of little bookish things I did! Continue reading

Birthday Book Haul – Feburary 2019

I’ll give myself any excuse to buy books, and February’s was that my birthday is actually in February. I also wanted to stop doing regular book hauls (as of right now i’m on a ban anyway) so this is just an accumulation of the books that i got around the time of my birthday.

Stripes EqualiTea Event – A Very Bookish Weekend

The last weekend in January was a really fun one for us, filled with loads of bookish things. A few months ago, we got invited to the Stripes EqualiTea event. The event was to promote Proud, their new LGBTQ+ anthology, along with some other exciting releases that Stripes have in store for us in 2019. As soon as we got invited, we jumped on the chance to go. The following day, we also had our semi-regular meeting with the Manchester Bloggers group. It was an incredibly bookish weekend.

London Book Haul

I said some time ago that i was aiming to be on a book buying ban for a while. YALC is a very big book buying experience, so i wanted to avoid buying books for a few months while i had chance to catch up on some reading. That clearly did not happen. I’d had this tripped to London planned for months, Hamilton was the main reason that i went, but my partner had never been in a Foyles or explored the book shops of London. So naturally we went to do just that.

YALC Haul 2018

YALC is over, my weekend wrap-up is done and it’s time for the book haul (aka, the part that i know we’re most excited for). I had the goal this year of not getting that many books, and specifically only picking up books that i was excited for or had been on my list for quite some time. I can happily say that i stuck to one of those promises.

Book Haul – London Trip

Very late in 2017 i uploaded a book haul which i said would be my last book haul in a long time. And then i went to London. We had this trip planned for a long time and saw Harry Potter and The Cursed Child while we were there (which was my second watch and just as incredible as the first). But this meant that i also had some free time to go to Foyles.
