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.
* The book discussed in this post was gifted by the publisher.
I have constant faith in Usbourne books. They’re fantastic, inclusive and usually just an absolute dream to read. When i heard about Nothing Ever Happens Here, I knew it would be something i absolutely loved and wanted to share with you all.
Look, before you say anything, I know this is mega late. Sarah posted hers a few weeks ago and tagged me and I also wanted to join the hype because I love a good tag! I don’t do many resolutions or goals at New Year – I set myself intentions which are flexible and I adapt when it feels right. It’s the same with my reading! I have a few intentions which I’m working towards but mostly I’m just going to read what I want to read. Read on to find out more!
