Notes on a Nervous Planet by Matt Haig (BEDM)

Book Review HeaderI bought this book when it came out, ready for an event for it that we attended about a year ago in Doncaster. We went to another, much bigger one recently at HOME in Manchester which Sarah is going to upload a post on soon. I only just read the book before the HOME event after wanting to get round to it for about a year (we all know how we are with our TBR piles…) and I was really looking forward to it because it seemed really relevant to how I had been feeling the past year or so. Read on for my full review! Continue reading “Notes on a Nervous Planet by Matt Haig (BEDM)”

Book Haul Header

It’s been quite a while since i’ve done a book haul. My lent goal this year was to not buy books while it lasted, and i actually achieved it! However, i may have put some in the store cupboard at work for when it was over, and i also treated myself to a few Amazon purchases in the first hour after it ended. Along with that and being on holiday and some new releases, i’ve managed to acquire quite a few new books in the last month or so. I would by lying if i said i’d remember everything i got, so here’s a snippet of what’s joined my shelves recently.
