Pride month is in full swing (🥳) so it's had me looking at my current TBR and which LGBTQ+ books are waiting patiently on my shelves for their turn to be read. This year I'm trying to focus on getting through my (ridiculously) huge physical TBR and so while there are a whole bunch of … Continue reading 5 LGBTQ+ Books on my TBR!
I think all book lovers can agree that there's nothing better than a particularly pretty book. Whether it's gold foiling, gorgeous covers or sprayed edges, I've definitely bought a book or two based on its cover. Lately I'm becoming more and more picky about which books stay on my forever shelf but I'll always have … Continue reading My Favourite Sprayed Edges!
Working as a bookseller has many perks, one of which is that it becomes easier to get your hands on a signed copy of a book you're excited for. Whether that's being the first one to see signed stock arrive (I've spent many a quiet morning looking through author signatures with my colleagues!) or working … Continue reading My Signed Book Collection!
Today is my dad's birthday! He'd be 68 today and we'd be celebrating with a nice meal and a homemade cake. But, as you might know, he's no longer with us and celebrating his birthday is a little different. We still like to mark the occasion as Dad will always be so special to us … Continue reading Reading Family Favourites: Dad’s Last Reads!

Whether it's a comfort read on those days that are a bit rubbish or a way to transport … Continue reading My Go-to Authors!
After a year or so of only using NetGalley for blog tours, I was finally bitten by the bug. Going on book requesting sprees is a sure fire way to boost my serotonin levels! 😂 So, for the nosey among you (you're my kind of people!) I thought I'd divulge the secrets of my current … Continue reading NetGalley Shelf Tour!
If three lockdowns have brought anything good for those of us on furlough, it's been having the (relatively) guilt free time to tackle our TBR lists - and even their film/tv adaptions! I'm a big fan of seeing my favourite stories come to life on screen and when it's done well, they often become my … Continue reading The Best Book to Film Adaptions!
January is always a slow month - add in another lockdown and it practically crawled by. I don't know what it is specifically but I barely read anything for most of the month so thought why not try and dedicate two whole days to reading as much as I could. I've never really done reading … Continue reading Impromptu Weekend Read-a-thon!
Anyone else's TBR pile overflowing? 😅 It's a pretty constant battle for me (made worse by the fact that I'm constantly brining new books home!) so I'm committing to really trying to get through what I already have before I pick up any more. So far, so good - aside from making my way through … Continue reading TBR Priorities for 2021!
