Since October or so, Sarah and I have been going to a creative writing group inManchester. Sarah told me about it and I started to go with her and now we try and go every week or as often as we can. I’ve always wanted to join something like this because it’s fun to meet new people, especially other people who have an interest in something creative! I’ve made new friends there, built my confidence and I always have a wonderful time.

Mental Health and Reading

chatThis is probably the most personal post I’ve written yet but I’ve been struggling for a 28275690_1665442986836620_1556643384_ocouple of years to balance work and leisure time and it’s mainly down to having depression and anxiety. Balancing different areas of my life is something I’ve been working on lately, and have been for a while, as I find it very difficult.

A Little Life Update

I’ve always been the least active on the blog (thank goodness for Sarah) but at the very end of 2016 and early this year I had a huge dip in motivation – not just for the blog and reading, but in many areas of my life. I didn’t have the motivation to read or write anything to be honest. Once every so often I would have an hour or so of productivity but that seemed to be it and I would burn out soon after. I’ve picked up now, but it’s been a strange few weeks, so here’s a little life update.  Continue reading

Bookish Confessions

One of my favourite posts to read are the bookish confessions posts. These are the posts in which readers reveal their deepest and darkest, often most embarrassing secrets when it comes to reading (and honestly, the ones they’re most ashamed of). They’re often quite hilarious, shameful and full of personal facts that i love learning about other book bloggers. So here you go, here are my 20 bookish confessions.
