12 Days of Blogmas: Books I Intended To Read In 2021


Did anyone else have big reading plans for 2021, have any personal challenges besides a Goodreads or Storygraph reading goal? I certainly did and the majority of them were based around tackling my backlist and cutting down on my number of unread books. However, I didn’t quite manage it so the books I had every intention of reading are still unread. Oops.

12 Days of Blogmas: 5 Favourite Covers of 2021

If there is one thing I’ve noticed over the last few years, it is the effort that goes into cover design. They become more intricately designed by the day and it makes books become collector’s items more than those to be read and loved. Through this post, I want to share with you five book covers I’ve discovered over the past year that I consider to be my favourite.

12 Days of Blogmas: Christmas Bookshelf Challenge


It is day 6 of 12 Days of Blogmas and to change things up, I’ve decided to create a Christmas bookshelf challenge. Now, this is not a brand new concept as there is a book scavenger hunt on YT, but I get a little fed up of the same questions so I came up with my own. I don’t know how good they’ll be but they’re unique to me so…

Anyway, rambling aside, I have ten prompts to get to so let’s get shelf hunting!

12 Days of Blogmas: 2021 Books I Still Want To Read and Own


I have another list-style post for you today and I really wish I had something different but I suppose that is the nature of Blogmas and the type of posts that are circulating at this time of year. Anyway, this time I want to focus on the books released at the back end of 2020 or in 2021 that I’ve not had the opportunity to get and read.

12 Days of Blogmas: Book Haul

My shelves are groaning with books so what happens, I add more books to them! It’s mad, however, I don’t have any on a Christmas list this year so I’m saying it is okay. Plus, 3 out of the 4 books I have to share were bought for me so I’m really grateful, especially as I’ve not had the easiest of times lately.

12 Days of Blogmas: Book Christmas Tag

Hello, welcome to day 2 of the 12 Days of Blogmas! I’m here today with the Book Christmas Tag that I discovered over on Journey Into Books, and was initially created by Callum McLaughlin.

I don’t think there are any rules or pleasantries associated with the tag so let’s dive right in!

12 Days of Blogmas: Recent Reads

Hello! I’m back to blogging again after my hiatus and I’m back with a bang because I’ve stupidly decided to participate in Blogmas. However, this time I’m doing just 12 Days of Blogmas as it will be easier and of course we’re already partway through December so I’ve missed most of 25 days of Blogmas anyway.

Ramble over, I thought my first post would be of the books I’ve read over the last couple of months. With my course, I’ve not wanted to read too much but I’ve still needed something to dip into in the evenings.

Life Update and Upcoming Blog Hiatus.

Hello all!

Right now, I’m coming to you with a bit of a life update. I don’t usually share this on the blog because despite what my Twitter ramblings might say, I do believe there should be a boundary between what we do and do not share about our lives, but this time, I have to cross it as it is already starting to affect my reading and blogging.

October Book Haul

Wow, I’m writing up a book haul!

I haven’t done one for a while, not a monthly one in any case, so it is nice to have one to write up again!

October has been a full-on, overwhelming month. When I get overwhelmed I tend to bring myself back down to earth by buying books, Switch games, and/or anything else that is relatively calming. It works a treat, so much so, I acquired more books than I wanted to. But these things happen and I won’t complain about it.
