Summer Blog Challenge – Day 16

Day 16 – Celebrate Paperbacks

Another day to celebrate books but today let’s celebrate paperback books! I love and much prefer a paperback book to any other although it’s so much harder to read without damaging them.

The books I’ve chosen are my favourite because of their colouring mostly and how lovely they all work together as part of a series.

(This post almost didn’t happen today because our little girl got her first set of vaccinations today and she’s poorly and just wants cuddles. But I’ve managed to grab 30 minutes to myself because I’m determined not to fail this challenge!)

So let’s celebrate paperbacks!

Summer Blog Challenge – Day 7

Day 7 – Favourite Book Couple

I love romance in books. I love heavy romance in books and don’t object if it’s heavily explicit. In fact, I’m often disappointed if there isn’t some kind of romance in the book that I’m reading. But, as usual, choosing just one couple was hard though I’m happy with my choice. They are the reason I reread the series as often as I do.

My favourite book couple is Penryn and Raffe from the Penryn and the End of Days trilogy by Susan E. E.

Summer Blog Challenge – Day 4

Day 4 – Favourite author

This was a hard one because there are so many authors that I admire and appreciate but to choose just one? Now that is a hard call.

I had a good think about this and I thought through and rethought my answer. At first, I thought I would say that my favourite author would be Sarah J. Maas for obvious reasons. I fell in love with her work from the moment I started reading it and I have been following the Throne of Glass series since 2012. The work means a great deal to me and has gotten me through some pretty tough times. But then I thought harder about it and I realised that it was really just her works that I am in love with, although I’m sure she’s a pretty great lady I just wouldn’t say she is my favourite.

And then I knew because who wouldn’t love an author who is down on the same level as her readers and constantly sends us sloth memes and pictures of weird shit?

My favourite author is the delightfully peculiar Camilla Monk.

Spotless (Spotless book #1) – Camille Monk

Hey guys,

So this one has been a long time coming. I was introduced to the wonders of the Spotless series by a woman I used to work with. We both have pretty similar tastes when it comes to books but I won’t lie I was a little sceptical about starting this series. It just didn’t seem like something I would be into and a little out of my comfort zone. What a misjudgement that was!

I’m forever rereading this series switching between book, ebook and audiobook depending on where I am and what I’m doing. It has become one of those series that has found a special place in my heart and I drift back to it every few months when I need some Island and March in my life.

This Year’s Reads So Far…

Hi guys,

So we are finally in June which means that half of 2019 is already gone and before we know it it’s going to be 2020! What a year it has been so far!

The chaos of life has had me swamped and a new baby demanding my undivided attention means that I haven’t managed to read nearly as many books as I would have liked to but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t accomplished anything! I find myself now reading a lot more on my Kindle simply for the reason that it is very hard to hold a baby and turn the pages of books so at the moment my Kindle and I have become good friends again.

Bookshelf Tour

Hey guys,

So life has been all over the place with work and getting our flat ready for the arrival of our little baby in May (it’s so close, just 8 weeks now). We are currently staying in a one bedroom flat at the moment which meant that we had a lot of space to make for baby things. I have three bookcases at the moment and part of the compromise was that I had to reduce the amount of space that I was taking up with books (I love my books more than most things, but the baby is obviously more important!) So this meant that I had to condense down my bookcases and put some books away in the cupboard for now.

I thought that I would do a post on my bookcases before this happened because they won’t be looking too great by the end of this!

So, my first ever bookshelf tour! Continue reading “Bookshelf Tour”
