I’ve not bought many books at all this year (mainly because I’ve not had much money to spend and I’ve been trying to save tbh) but over the past six weeks or so I decided to treat myself to a few and figured I should do a little haul! Sarah also did a book haul the other day which you can catch up on here.Continue reading “A Little Book Haul”
I recently posted about what i’ve been doing while locked down, which basically just told you i’ve been reading a lot and watching Netflix. Which honestly is exactly what everyone else is doing so try not to be surprised. But i wanted to talk to you about what is specifically making me happy at the moment.
We’ve teamed up with two of our pals to bring you the Shelf Help Readathon this May! As we’re all stuck in doors and starting at the books that we still haven’t read more, the Shelf Help Readathon is here to help you tackle those old TBR piles!
Before lockdown, I had quite specific times that I read and it often wasn’t whilst I was at home. I had gotten into the habit of reading on my commute to and from work (or most times I used public transport), reading in cafes with friends and attempting to read before bed but this rarely ever happened. Lockdown has changed this quite a lot as the only place I can now read is at home! I always had a weird relationship with the word ‘productivity’ and what it means and I’ve had to again deal with it as I felt guilty reading at home – read on to see how I’ve adapted my reading routines!

With 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.

Hi everyone, it’s Lois from Lois Reads Books and I am here today on The Little Contemporary Corner with a book tag! Sophie and I both love the podcast My Favorite Murder and recently read the memior that the creators of the podcast wrote together and we loved it. So, we thought what better way to show our love for the podcast and the book by creating a My Favorite Murder book tag! Sophie and I spent a long time thinking of questions and then designing little headers for the question. I did the designing and Sophie did the thinking that’s really how it went down. If you love the podcast, are completely new to the podcast or just want a book tag to join in with, please feel free! Just tag us so that we can see your answers, we’d love to see other people doing this! Sophie will be doing this tag over on Lois Reads Books, so be sure to head over there and check it out!
So, without further ado, here is the My Favorite Murder Book Tag! Continue reading “My Favorite Murder Book Tag”
Happy book haul! I’ve been on a little bit of a buying ban for a while – i say a while, i really mean it’s been about six weeks – and i’m back with another haul, a haul that definitely shouldn’t have been a haul. I was determined to not buy books, read from my back list and be really good at the moment. That hasn’t happened and i’m back in a tricky place with my TBR and the fact that it’s huge.
