    The ‘Relationshipper’ book tag

    Good morning bookworms! I have been trawling the interwebs to find inspiration for content, and came across the masterlist of masterlists. Yep, you heard me. I found a blog post that has THE ULTIMATE TOP 100 BOOK TAGS. *Formulates evil plans to take over the world by forcing everyone to do tags all the time.* (Only joking! Also, let me know if you’re keen on being tagged in these periodically as I don’t want to inundate people who aren’t interested.) Rules Thank the blogger who tagged you – no one…

    Ringing in the New Year Book Tag

    Good morning bookworms! Right! I’m here to start the new year off with a bang! And what better way to do it, than to steal some tags that are about a year old, and recreate them and send them back out into the world? (No, but seriously, this was waaaaaay easier than creating my own tag.) So, we’re rebranding an end of 2017 tag as a start of 2019 tag. HOORAY! Rules: Link to the person who tagged you (umm, no one) Link to the creator of the tag (Bookmark…

    2018 WRAP-UP & 2019 GOALS!!

    Good morning bookworms! I have been procrastinating writing this post for about two weeks now… in fact, every time I get close to being ready with it, I discover a new graph I can add to it. However, I need to accept that it will never be perfect (I mean, seriously, what is?) and just roll with it. Also, I need to finish writing my 2019 goals, because, we’re already in 2019 and I should have some… right?! PS: This is going to be the longest post EVER, so I’m…

    Joy Of Christmas Book Tag

    We are so close to Christmas it’s ridiculous! I am currently eating my weight in gingerbread and lounging under the air conditioner because it’s supposed to be starting at 31°C (87°F) moving to 36°C (97°F) this week but it definitely feels hotter than that! Definitely a week to lie by the pool under an umbrella (skin cancer is real kids) reading books if I ever saw one. Onto more JOYous notes (hahaha), I saw this tag on Kristin Kraves Books and Siobhan’s Novelties and thought I would undertake it myself!…

    September ’18 wrap-up and October TBR

    September wrap-up My reading month was ok for September. I read seven books, but I definitely got distracted by Sophie’s post and then I found Kindle Unlimited and I read way more eBooks than I normally do. So my TBR didn’t really go down… But I still read a some good books so I’m satisfied with my reading pile! I definitely read more romance this month that I normally do. And there seemed to be a lot more smut than I ever read in a month, but it was ok.…
