Bookish Advent Calendar

Anyone else really excited about Christmas? I sure am and have been waiting to publish this post for ages now. Literally ages! 🙂 Because Christmas time means advent calendar time and just like last year, I’ve decided to treat myself to a bookish one. I’ve browsed Goodreads for hours and have put together a list…

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’m Thankful For

What a lovely prompt the girls over on The Broke and the Bookish came up with! I love their Top Ten Tuesday lists as they always make for great new reading inspiration. And this week, the my list is full of favourites of mine. So. Since it’s Thanksgiving time over in the US this week,…

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want My Children To Read

Imagine sitting on a rocking chair, a child on your knees, reading them a story. Isn’t the picture beautiful? It is no secret that I’m a big fan of books. So naturally, the thought of passing this love on to my own children is a pretty sweet one. Which is why I loved this week’s…

I haven’t read a series in a very long time. So reading Jenny Colgan’s book Rules, which is the second book in her Little School by the Sea series, was an eye-opener. Reading series can be really fun, can’t it? 🙂 Again, I want to keep the review rather short. If you want to know more, just tell…

I’ve decided to dedicated my list to my favourite strong female leader characters. I love any book with a strong female character. One that knows what…

November Book Haul and TBR

October was a bit of a spending month for me. I don’t really care, but my bank account begs to differ. So I want to apologize. I’m sorry, bank account for emptying you. But my love for books seems to be stronger than my love for money. Plus, I needed a few good ones for…

Autumn Readathon Wrap Up

I was considering whether I was even going to do an Autumn Readathon wrap-up as my reading last week wasn’t that out-standing. Mercedes from MercysBookishMusings might be as disappointed with me, as I am. But, since the books I did manage to read are outstanding and deserve to be written about, I’m going to do…

Finally Fall Book Tag

Sarah from Sarah The Reader tagged me to do the Finally Fall Book Tag which was originally created by Alina from Tall Tales. I know that fall is almost over, but since it is my favourite season and I’m not quite ready to let it go just yet, I thought I’d do the tag anyway.…
