Book TAG: 5…4…3…2…1 Challenge

Hello! I’m here today with a tag post that I saw on @dinipandareads and looked a lot of fun. It’s a quick one for me, which is rare, and one I found finished and unpublished in my draft folder so I cannot remember when I initially typed this up. Anyway, I don’t know who created this, but I can see that it is primarily an Instagram challenge, so maybe if someone digs quite deeply into all the posts the creator could be found.

Witchy Reads on my TBR

When it comes to the spooky season, we all have our favourite fictional creatures, genres and stories. I’m one for witches whether inherently magical, or misunderstood and unfairly persecuted, and every time I come across a book that centres around them, I have to own it. The only problem is, and it’s not new, is that I acquire books faster than I read them so my TBR is ridiculous. Many books remain on my shelves for a while before I get round to reading them all (I’m also a slower, more haphazard reader than I used to be), and it means there are a lot of witchy books that I’ve not yet read.

Five Spooky Books to Read This October

Hello everyone!

It is now finally Autumn and we’re well and truly into the spooky season, although if you wander into my local shops and supermarket, you’d think we had completely bypassed Halloween and gone straight to Christmas – yes Sainsbury’s, I’m looking at you with the mince pies and advent calendars, although if you stocked lebkuchen again I wouldn’t be disappointed.

Anyway, we’re here for all the Autumn vibes and the first of a few blog posts that wouldn’t be out of place within Blogtober. I’m not participating in it by any means but they’re nice posts to write to hopefully get me back into the swing of things, and we’re starting off with spooky reads. I love a good, unsettling read at this time of year, not too scary as I am a little bit of a wimp, but something that is just creepy or spooky enough to feel the goosebumps prickling your skin.

Summer Book Haul

Hello! It has been a while since I last posted anything but I’ve been quite busy and have needed to give myself a break from looking at a computer screen 24/7. However, I am coming back today with a book haul because I have no restraint and I won a YALC Twitter Giveaway which was incredibly exciting!

Book TAG: I’ll Get Around To It Later…


It has been a few months since I’ve done a TAG post so it is high time I did another one. I stumbled across this particular tag on @Maggie’sDoodles, and as I’m notoriously terrible at putting off books, I feel this is the perfect one for me.

Clearing the Shelves: July 2022 Edition Part 1

Hello! Welcome back to another edition of “Clearing the Shelves,” my series dedicated to the books I unhaul so I can either tidy my bookshelves or make some room for newer books.

The Mid Year Book Freakout Tag

It is the time of year when this tag is making the rounds, and as usual, I’m quickly drafting and slotting it around other posts in my schedule. I can’t say I will talk about an exhaustive list of books, but hopefully, there will be enough to fill nearly all the questions.

Book TAG: The Book Snob


It is time for another book tag and this time it is The Book Snob TAG. I was tagged by @Sifa and actually, I feel as if I’ve done this one before. I can’t find it amongst my posts but the questions seem familiar to me. Anyway, I’ll happily do it and immortalise it on this blog!

Genres I Gravitate to During Late Spring and Summer


We are now in the transition period between Spring and Summer, and if there is one thing that strikes me at this time in the reading year, it is the change in my reading mood. I want books that are relaxing, that can be read in one sitting, or that evoke the freshness and warmth of the season.
