Why I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year

Yup, I said it, I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year. I’d be lying if  I said I didn’t want to and I almost caved on October 31st, but I made myself a promise. I know what happened last year, and I told myself I wouldn’t do NaNo this year because of it. NaNoWriMo – National… Continue reading Why I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year

TBRs and Wrap ups

April 2018 Wrap Up (Let’s just pretend I didn’t set myself a TBR, OK)

April was a pretty busy and exciting month for me. I visited my sister abroad, went to London, and spent the day at an agricultural festival. It was an energising few weeks, but I did not stick to my TBR. At all. In fact, I think at this point it would be better if we… Continue reading April 2018 Wrap Up (Let’s just pretend I didn’t set myself a TBR, OK)

Book Hauls

(Belated) Christmas and January Book Haul

It seems like a long time since Christmas now, but I realised recently that I hadn’t hauled any of the books I got as presents. I don’t know how I managed to miss doing this, since the veritable mountain sitting on my bedside table includes a lot of the books I got for Christmas, but… Continue reading (Belated) Christmas and January Book Haul

Blogmas Day 6: Cities I’d visit for a snowy winter

For today’s blogmas post, I thought I’d write about some of the cities I’d visit if I wanted to enjoy a long and snowy winter. I’m not a massive fan of the cold (I’m a 100% certified summer child), but if there’s snow then it suddenly becomes worth the numb fingertips and freezing nose. So… Continue reading Blogmas Day 6: Cities I’d visit for a snowy winter
