2018 is officially coming to a close and 2019 is about to begin. What a year it has been.
I don’t know about you guys but it’s been a pretty life-changing year for me. I got engaged in spring, found out I was pregnant in summer, lost my grandad in the fall and my lovely old pussycat got put to sleep in winter. It’s been an emotional year with both happy and sad circumstances falling on my family and I but here we are at the end of another year.
I thought I would do a bit of a wrap up of my Top 10 Books for 2018. It’s not something I’ve done before but I thought it would be nice to revisit all the great books I’ve read in the past year. This isn’t limited only to books that have come out in 2018. Continue reading “Top 10 Books for 2018”
So I’m finally catching up with the rest of the world. I got fed up rereading the same books (even though I have loads of books in my TBR pile.

But, the series was on sale on the Kindle store and I think I got the three books for around £7 so I can’t really complain. I started Shadow and Bone and I finished it by lunchtime the following day. I couldn’t put it down. I really, really enjoyed the first book. (I also just got these beautiful copies in my most recent book haul. I’m in love).

It’s a pretty good life but we aren’t going to go into that. There is a point behind me mentioning this actually. The way my previous jobs bonus scheme worked was as a point system, your store was awarded points based on performance and you could then go on to spend the points on cool stuff. I was saving my points and when it came to me leaving the company I decided I should use my points instead of losing them.
Naturally, I loaded them all into a National Book Token card to spend in a bookshop.
It did not disappoint.
