The Anti-TBR Tag

Hi friends 👋🏻 I’m easing myself back into blogging by taking part in the Anti-TBR Tag which I first saw from Caro @ The Bookcheshire Cat! I usually try to make this blog as positive as I possibly can, but I am naturally a pessimist so it feels good to sometimes just let it all out and give all of the reasons why I don’t want to read a certain book. Without trashing it, of course, because that’s crossing a line for me. This tag was created by Nicole @ Nicole & Her Books! A popular book everyone loves that you have…

My Favourite Books and Movies of 2020

Hi friends! 👋🏻 2020 was a weird liminal space of a year that can only be split into “pre-lockdown” and “lockdown” so trying to remember what I read and watched has been very difficult, but from what I do remember, I can pick out some favourites that I want to talk about today! I didn’t read as much as I usually would last year and that’s fine because what I did read, I really enjoyed. As for movies, I watched so many movies that picking five favourites was the most difficult thing. I blame 31 Days of Horror for that…

The Winter Wonderland Book Tag

Hi friends! 👋🏻 It is still winter here in the UK, and although we don’t have “typical” winters with regular snow thanks to our strange geographical position in the world, we do get very, very cold, and we get storms. In fact, it is currently raining as I’m writing this post and has been for two days. That being said, winter is actually my favourite season. I don’t enjoy being hot and I hate hot weather so summer is the worst time of year for me. In fact, I’m pretty sure I have the opposite of most people who get seasonal…

10 Books I Am Determined to Finally Read in 2021

Happy Tuesday friends! 👋🏻 It is no secret that I am a terrible procrastinator. I procrastinated my way through school, sixth form, and university, and still got top marks. I procrastinate, sleeping, eating, drinking water, all sorts of things. And I definitely procrastinate reading certain books. I think we all do this to some degree; it’s not a common book blogger thing to say that your TBR will never shrink for no reason. We all get really excited for new releases and then completely forget about them for months or even years if you’re like me. I have a few…

My Blogging Manifesto

Happy new year, friends! 🥳 2020 was an absolutely horrible year for me, even though I did start up this blog to keep me occupied, and I am a very cynical person so I haven’t got any hopes for 2021 and haven’t set myself any goals. However, while I’m not making any goals, I have decided to set some blogging guidelines for myself, in what is actually a pretty old idea. I had a blog manifesto for my previous blog, but that was made about six years ago and not only can I not remember what was on it, but…
