I don't know about you but I certainly have a selection of songs that have helped me to not completely give in to the spiralling nature of the pandemic: Trip a Little Light Fantastic from Mary Poppins Returns, Try Everything from Zootopia/Zootropolis, One Day More from Les Miserables, and Seize The Day from Newsies.

It is a year since lockdowns in the UK started and we had the timely arrival of both Disney+ and Animal Crossing New Horizons. Both have been very important in giving me an escape when I've been unable to pick up a book or crochet, but playing Animal Crossing on my switch has become an… Continue reading Book Tag: Animal Crossing New Horizons

It is a… Continue reading Bookshelf Tour: Series I’ve Started and not Finished.

Hello, and welcome to what is a rather surprising reading wrap up for me, exploring new books and genres I don't tend to read. In total I read six books with one DNF. I thought I'd read more considering how quickly I flew through them all at the beginning but I got distracted by my… Continue reading February Wrap-Up
If there is one thing that gets us excited, it is a new book by our favourite author or a highly anticipated sequel we want in our hands as soon as the announcement goes live. It is a trait we have carried with us as readers throughout childhood into adolescence and adulthood, and even though… Continue reading What Book Generation Are You?
Hello and welcome to a post I haven't really done before, predicting what books on my shelved and unread TBR would earn a five star rating.
