Blogmas Day 8 // The best, worst, and most unusual Bookmas trees I’ve come across

For Blogmas day eight, I wanted to theme my post around something that combines an icon of the festive season with our favourite things: ‘Bookmas’ trees. These tree-shaped stacks are time-consuming to arrange, but wonderful to look at, and I wanted to share a few of the best, strangest, and most original that I’ve come… Continue reading Blogmas Day 8 // The best, worst, and most unusual Bookmas trees I’ve come across

Blogmas Day 7 // The Twelve Days of Christmas as books

For day six of Blogmas, I’m taking a well-known Christmas song and giving it a bookish spin. This is just a fit of fun, but I tried to match the days of the song up to books that had similar themes or titles. Let me know if you think I did a good job, or… Continue reading Blogmas Day 7 // The Twelve Days of Christmas as books

Blogmas Day 6 // Short books to read if you need to catch up on your Goodreads challenge

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been desperately trying to catch up on your Goodreads challenge for the last few weeks of the year. I often start off well in January, but then fall behind by March or April. Normally I pull it back over the summer, but this year I’ve been behind since January… Continue reading Blogmas Day 6 // Short books to read if you need to catch up on your Goodreads challenge

Blogmas Day 3 // November wrap up and December TBR

Since I’m doing Blogmas again this year, I decided to combine my November wrap up and December TBR so I could keep one of my 12 posts of Blogmas free for something else. (Original Christmas tag? Best books of the year? Books as the 12 days of Christmas? These posts are all coming.) I’ve also… Continue reading Blogmas Day 3 // November wrap up and December TBR

Blogmas Day 2 // Books on my Christmas wishlist

With Christmas only a few weeks away, I decided to give you a peek at what’s on my wishlist this year. Much to my Dad’s chagrin, I always ask for at least a few books for Christmas (he thinks I have too many already) so I thought I’d share them for Blogmas day two. 1.… Continue reading Blogmas Day 2 // Books on my Christmas wishlist

Blogmas Day 1 // Goals for the end of 2018

Blogmas is a period during the festive season when bloggers post content to their sites every day. This doesn’t have to be Christmas-related, it can… Continue reading Blogmas Day 1 // Goals for the end of 2018

Blogmas Day 24: The best books I’ve read in 2017

It’s Christmas Eve, which means it’s the final day of Blogmas! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my first Blogmas and thought I’d close it out, after yesterday’s Worst Books I’ve Read This Year post, with the best books I’ve read this year. These are all books I gave 5 stars too, which doesn’t happen all that often, and they were… Continue reading Blogmas Day 24: The best books I’ve read in 2017

Blogmas Day 23: The worst books I’ve read in 2017

  With only 8 days left of 2017, I was ruminating on the poetry, graphic novels, short stories, and novels I’ve read this year. Some of them have been wonderful and uplifting. Some have been exciting and action-packed. But some have been pretty poor. So as we all do towards the end of the year,… Continue reading Blogmas Day 23: The worst books I’ve read in 2017

Blogmas Day 22 – The Friday 56: The Beast’s Heart

The Friday 56 is a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. The idea is to share an excerpt from a book you’ve been reading every Friday, to promote the book or simply just to showcase your current read! Rules: *Grab a book, any book. *Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you… Continue reading Blogmas Day 22 – The Friday 56: The Beast’s Heart

Blogmas Day 21: End of the Year Book Tag

As we’re now in the home straight of 2017, I decided it’d be fitting to do the End of the Year Book Tag and start rounding up the books I’ve read in the last twelve months. I recently saw this on Jenniely’s blog and her answers were so fun that it inspired me to have a… Continue reading Blogmas Day 21: End of the Year Book Tag
