Despite the weather telling me otherwise, it is now April?? Part of me is wishing the time away because I want things to be warmer and for the second half of my pregnancy not to drag, but at the same time life seems to be flying past me. I have a lot of books yet… Continue reading Quarterly Check-In: March 2023

Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic, and you compile ten books that fit the theme. You can find more information here. It's been many a moon since a TTT graced the blog, and a while longer since I set out a TBR for… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR
Checking in for 2023
Hello book friends, it's been a couple of months since my last post... working in retail means the December period is always rough, and other personal things going on meant I had very little headspace for reading, let alone talking about books! I am aiming to be more present from now, though probably still dialled… Continue reading Checking in for 2023
November TBR: SciFiMonth
Banner credit: This year’s SciFiMonth artwork is by the amazingly talented Simon Fetscher. Even though I've spent half the past month thinking it's already November, it is at last here and with it comes the epic event that is SciFiMonth, organised by the delightful Lisa at Dear Geek Place and Imyril at There's Always Room For One… Continue reading November TBR: SciFiMonth
A Spooktastic Round-Up
Happy Halloween! It's the last of our 13 days celebrating all things dark fantasy with Spooktastic Reads, and I thought it would be fun to look at some of the things everyone got up to! I didn't end up posting nearly as much as I would have liked (one review, sigh) but loved seeing everyone… Continue reading A Spooktastic Round-Up
It’s Spooktastic Season!
We are entering the last 13 Days of October, which means it’s time for Spooktastic Reads, our Wyrd and Wonder mini event! In case you missed my announcement post earlier this month, it’s a very relaxed blogging event to celebrate all things dark and eerie within fantasy. There’s no Reading challenge or sign up to… Continue reading It’s Spooktastic Season!
The Mid Year Check In 2022
It's almost mid-July (does time speed up as you get older? help!) and I wasn't actually going to do a mid-year check in, because I've been quiet and demotivated, and figured I'd missed the train on it, but if my dear friend BookForager can post hers this week, then so can I! And hopefully it'll… Continue reading The Mid Year Check In 2022
April 2022 Wrap Up
It's the end of April, which means only one thing... [insert gif here] It's gonna be May! And with May comes the joy of Wyrd & Wonder! But more on that tomorrow... For now I'm going to be looking back on April and how I somehow managed to read 15 books in one month, including my current Book of the Year.
March 2022 Warp Up
March has been a weird month - I was in South Africa on holiday for the first two weeks of the month, and as I wasn't keeping track of days it almost felt like the passing time didn't count. I was very confused then, when I got back, to find myself in the middle of… Continue reading March 2022 Warp Up
February 2022 Wrap Up
Somehow, I have repeated my January feat of 10 books for this month as well, taking me up to 20 total for the year so far! I'm not really fussed about reaching a high target at all, but I think my desire to plow through the TBR and clear my shelves for new things has… Continue reading February 2022 Wrap Up
