Reading Lately – September 2018

Can you believe it’s time for another reading round up already? I’m sharing a little early again this month as the last few days before the calendar turns are always a busy time. I’ve just started Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard but I know I’m not going to get it finished before the month ends.…

Reading Lately – July 2018

I’m sharing my reading update a bit early this month, for various reasons, including 1) it’s the school holidays and you have to take the chance when you get it, and 2) I’ve just started Dragonfly in Amber (the second book in the Outlander series), and there’s no way I’m finishing THAT 960 page baby in less…

Five Reasons to Pick Up a Book on World Book Day

With World Book Day on the horizon, what better excuse to share something bookish? There are few things that make me happier in life than devouring copious amounts of words written on a page. Put a book in front of me and I’m smiling, put me in a lovely library and I’m ecstatic, put me in a…

Five of the Best Book-to-Film Love Stories

Three of my favourite things in life are books, films and love, and Valentine’s Day is a perfect excuse to curl up with a romantic book, or persuade/force/cajole my husband into watching one of my favourite soppy movies. Better still, both – with books about love that have also been turned into films just perfect…

Reading Lately – January 2018

It seems like such a long time since I did one of these monthly reading round ups. January is one long month, eh? And I didn’t do a proper round up in December as I was too busy writing about my favourite books of the year. So this is going to be something of a…

My Ten Favourite Books of 2017

Ah, such a big statement isn’t it, ‘my favourite books of the year’. I mean, what if the best book ever pops up in the last week of December? A pile of Christmas to-do lists means that’s a chance I’m just going to have to take 🙂 This year has been a fab one for me…
