    Off Tangent Thoughts… while organising your bookshelf

    Good morning bookworms! Today we are doing another Off Tangent Thoughts (OTT) which was created by Charvi @ Not Just Fiction. This fortnight’s topic is a freebie because it’s the 5th week of the month, so I am going back to the very first prompt: thoughts you have while organising your bookshelf. However… instead of off-tangent thoughts (because my books are currently sorted by rainbow, so it’s really just a “is this blue spine redder or yellower than the one next to it?”) I’m going to explain my shelving thoughts…

    Off Tangent Thoughts… during read-a-thons

    Good morning bookworms! Today we are doing another Off Tangent Thoughts (OTT) which was created by Charvi @ Not Just Fiction. This fortnight’s topic is thoughts I have during read-a-thons. I LOVE read-a-thons. I love getting a list of prompts and finding books that work for them. I’m just really bad at the execution of them… because… I am a mood reader. 😭 OMG! A read-a-thon! *cue internal SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!* *pores over list of prompts* *runs around room finding books that match each prompt* *opens giant ‘BOOKS’ spreadsheet* *creates new tab*…

    Off Tangent Thoughts… while at a bookstore

    Good morning bookworms! Today we are doing another Off Tangent Thoughts (OTT) which was created by Charvi @ Not Just Fiction. This fortnight’s topic is thoughts I have while I’m at a bookstore. I mean… honestly? My thoughts are basically just me screaming internally while I’m at a bookstore, but I’ll try and put some actual words to the process!! *breathes sigh of happiness as walks through door* My home… it’s calling me 😍 *wanders aimlessly for 10 mins just breathing in the books* Right brain, let’s focus. I am…

    Off Tangent Thoughts… when someone reads a book I love

    Good evening bookworms! I somehow forgot today was Sunday, so I didn’t schedule this post (also I am so tired from travel and packing)!! Today, albeit later than usual, we are doing another Off Tangent Thoughts (OTT) which was created by Charvi @ Not Just Fiction. This fortnight’s topic is thoughts I have when someone reads a book I love. I was going to split this one into two: thoughts I have if I recommended it, and thoughts I have if they randomly read it, but after I drafted them…

    Off Tangent Thoughts… when someone interrupts my reading

    Good morning bookworms! Today we are doing another Off Tangent Thoughts (OTT) which was created by Charvi @ Not Just Fiction. This fortnight’s topic is thoughts I have when someone interrupts my reading. I need to start this one with a disclaimer… 99% of the time my reading is interrupted it’s my husband. The other 1% is when I actually get to take a book to work AND read it during my lunch break… which is not very often! *am reading* *hears something in background* *ignores and keeps reading* huh……

    Off Tangent Thoughts… while writing book reviews

    Good morning bookworms! Sorry I’m late!! I spent all day yesterday finishing the secret beta read, and messaging with the authors, and stayed up way too late! Then this morning I slept in, and woke up in time to watch NY Excelsior (my babies – yes, I picked them because Gansey’s catchphrase is ‘Excelsior’) get beaten by Vancouver in the Overwatch League stage 2 semi-finals and now I am so sad! 😭💔 So today we are doing something slightly different. Charvi @ Not Just Fiction has started a series called Off…
