Earlier this month I took a blogging break. This wasn’t a decision I made lightly and it’s something I’ve thought about lots since slowly making my return to the blogging scene. The truth it, I’ve been wanting to take a break for a long time now but there were so many reasons I used to…… Continue reading My Blogging Break Discussion: How I accepted it and why it was good for me
Today I’ve decided to bring you guys another bookish discussion. Recently I’ve been thinking about the pros and cons of participating in a book meme. I only join in with one weekly meme at the moment and I used to really love it. Now, however, I’m finding it quite difficult to write a post every…… Continue reading The Pros and Cons of Book Memes
It’s been a while since I’ve written a discussion post on my blog and this is something that’s been on my mind for a long time now so I decided it was time to talk about it. At the end of the year I requested an ARC via Netgalley that I was convinced I was…… Continue reading I DNF’d An ARC – Am I A Bad Blogger?
It’s time for another Top 5 Tuesday and this week the topic is ‘books that lived up to the hype’. As always, T5T is hosted by Bionic Book Worm – go and show her blog a little love! I’ve talked about hype a couple of times on my blog before and how off-putting it can be.…… Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday – Books That Lived Up To The Hype
I’m back again for another late night instalment of Top 5 Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Bionic Book Worm! This week the topic is Authors I Want to Meet, and I’m sure as bloggers we’ve all dreamed of our favourite writers and what we might say to them (if anything other than a squeal…… Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday – Authors I Want to Meet
I’ve been thinking a lot about the ARCs, proofs, and finished copies I’ve been sent to review lately and I decided it was time for a break. One of the greatest aspects of being a blogger is the opportunity to review new books but sometimes you have to sign out of your Netgalley account or…… Continue reading I’m Taking A Break From Requesting ARCs, And Here’s Why
It’s the last Tuesday of the month which means it’s time for the final Top 5 Tuesday of the month! I haven’t participated in T5T for a while so I’m so glad to be back. As usual, this is a weekly meme ran by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, so go check out her profile…… Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday – Intimidating Books
Yesterday I participated in a weekly meme where the topic was ‘Top 5 Auto-buy Authors’. I don’t really have any go-to, auto-buy authors as such so I really struggled to pick 5 writers for my list. However, this really got me thinking about the blogging world and how we pick our books. I don’t really…… Continue reading Auto-Buying Authors: Yay or Nay?
Today I’m bringing you my monthly round up a little earlier than usual to allow for tomorrow’s Top 5 Tuesday. So today it’s time for October’s My Monthly Me! This will probably be a short post focused more on goals for next month rather than achievements from this month. Adult life got very much in…… Continue reading My Monthly Me – October
I’m hitting you all with another tag today! I’d had such a great few days planned on my blogging schedule but then I got really sick so I missed all the theatre and reading opportunities, so of course my schedule went down the drain. I’ve been itching to get writing again and I saw this…… Continue reading Autumn Tag
