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

Top Ten Tuesday

Blogmas Day 4 // Top Ten Tuesday: Cosy reads for the snowy season

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s theme is: December 4: Cozy/Wintry Reads I really like finding books that… Continue reading Blogmas Day 4 // Top Ten Tuesday: Cosy reads for the snowy season

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

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

No TBR November // For one month only, I’m not setting myself a reading list

Yep, I said it. As much as I love TBRs and they give me structure and goals for each month, during November, I’m not making one. I know this might seem out of character for me (it is), since I’ve been religiously setting myself a TBR each month since mid-2017, but I wanted to have… Continue reading No TBR November // For one month only, I’m not setting myself a reading list

February 2018 Wrap Up (Aka the month where I STILL didn’t get to The Belles)

Wow, where did February go? One minute the month had just begun and the next March had arrived. February is such a short month anyway, but this was compounded by the fact that I was on holiday for a week of it, so I didn’t actually get that much reading time in. These are the… Continue reading February 2018 Wrap Up (Aka the month where I STILL didn’t get to The Belles)

Blogmas Day 18: Things I love about Christmas

Since it’s only seven days until Christmas (yes, I’m screaming too!), I thought I’d discuss some of my favourite things about the festive season. Getting to spend time with family and friends I love spending time with those close to me regardless of the season, but there’s something cosy and wonderful about doing so around… Continue reading Blogmas Day 18: Things I love about Christmas
