Unboxing | Books That Matter: “Hot Book Summer” | August 2021

Another Books That Matter book box arrived on my doorstep a few days ago, and I’m very excited to share what was inside with you!

The theme for this month was “Hot Book Summer“, and we had four great items to help celebrate the summer months. I enjoyed 3/4 of the items -and I’ll talk about why in a minute…

Unboxing | Books That Matter: Pride | June 2021

June is Pride month, and as usual Books That Matter have released their June Pride box! This box was easily my favourite so far of all of the BTM boxes I have ever received, so read on to find out why…

I think it’s easiest if we get onto what was inside this box before I start telling you why I loved it so much! So, what was included?

Talking About My Recent Bookish Photos!

I’ve recently started posting on my bookstagram again, so I thought a nice return to blogging would be sharing some of my most recent pictures!

I’ve been loving the “vintage” style of bookish photography with warm brown tones, doilies, dried roses, and book pages. But I also like the “quieter”, “clean” style of photos with white backgrounds and bright colours.

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon April 2020 | Hour 10

The original plan (after I discovered there were no mini challenges) was to post every 6 hours (so every 1/4 of the way through) to update you guys.

Unfortunately, as always with me and Dewey’s, plans never really work out.

I have read to page 200, which I’m pretty proud of (214 in fact), even though the original plan was to read 400 today and 400 tomorrow.

2020 Reading Goals

It’s been a hot minute since I last posted – June, apparently. But I want to get back into blogging in 2020, because I love it and I miss it so much.

Today I thought I’d share with you my 2020 goals for reading and this blog! Last year, I read 53 books in total, which, considering how busy I was, I think is pretty good. I want to read about the same this year, as my TBR is constantly getting bigger!

Author Interview | Fiona Shaw

Hey everyone! Today I am delighted to be interviewing Fiona Shaw, who wrote the wonderful novel Outwalkers. You can read my spoiler-free review here!

Outwalkers follows a gang of children in near-future Britain as they try to escape capture and enter Scotland where they will be safe. In a post-Brexit UK, this book is, I feel, important for anyone to read.
