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…

Reading Lately – June 2018

With the end of June just around the corner – and the school holidays looming – the chances of me finishing another book before the weekend are looking minuscule. So I’ll go ahead now and share my monthly round up – in bookish terms, June has been very, very good 🙂 . It’s also been a pretty good month…

Reading Lately – May 2018

It’s going to be a quick round up this month, as I’ve had a light month on the book front. After all my boasts about my exciting to-read pile last month I managed to read the sum total of just two 😉 . That said, one of them was Outlander, which stretches to over 850…

Daffodils, Reveal, Abba Fever and a Few Changes – #LittleLoves

It’s been a lovely week here in wellies and for most of the last few days the sun has been shining brightly. Aside from the odd downpour (and that moment of April madness – hailstones?!), the weather has been really very good. We had a lovely morning on Saturday exploring the daffodil gardens at Thrumster…

Reading Lately, Feb-Mar 2018

You might remember that in February I didn’t manage a reading round up because I was so busy writing a post in honour of World Book Day, so this month I have a bumper round up for you – gold star if you stick it out to the end 🙂 . The last few weeks…

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…

Reading, Watching Listening to Lately – August 2017

Summer may be coming to an end here in the Scottish Highlands, but earlier sunsets and dark evenings do have a few upsides, and the excuse to curl up with a book, movie or a box set have to be pretty much at the top of my Autumn-ready list. I’ve had a fantastic run of books and entertainment over…

Reading, Watching, Listening to Lately – July 2017

I can hardly believe that it’s been a month since my last reading, watching and listening to post, or that our school holidays here in the North of Scotland are already half way through! We’ve had a lovely holidays so far, it’s been wonderful having my two favourite boys at home and I’m trying to make…

Reading, Watching, Listening to Lately – June 2017

We’re inching ever closer to the school holidays here in the north of Scotland, and I for one can’t wait for the possibility of a few extra minutes with a cup of tea and a book each morning before we think about getting ready for the day. Despite the rushed mornings June hasn’t been a…
