    Top 5 spicy reads

    Hello friends!! Welcome to Top 5 Tuesday!! This week’s topic is a freebie… And I am doing top 5 spicy reads!! Why?? Well, because this is a topic that I wouldn’t inflict on anyone else.

    Books that look like other books

    Hello friends!! The other week I commented that the only reason I picked up a book on my Kindle was because I thought it was part of a series I had started. Because the covers looked the same to me. So, today I’m going to be talking about books that look like other books. Now, this is absolutely NOT me…

    Top 5 books with baked goods

    Hello friends!! Welcome to Top 5 Tuesday!! This week’s topic is top 5 books with baked goods!! This Thursday, 14 March is International Pi Day. Something about 3.14… maths, circles, other math/sciency things. Look, I read a lot of fantasy and romance. I don’t need to understand how to calculate a circumference. So, instead of picking 5 books that have…

    Top 5 female authors

    Hello friends!! Welcome to Top 5 Tuesday!! This week’s topic is top 5 female authors!! You know, with all of the posts we’ve written for Top 5 Tuesday, I was really surprise we hadn’t done a specific top 5 female authors.

    Hello friends!! Welcome to Top 5 Tuesday!! This week’s topic is top 5 fairy tale retellings!! Now, I know this topic is not for everyone. In fact, it’s pretty much designed purely for me.

    Hello friends!! Welcome to the Top 5 Tuesday topics post: January-March 2024!! Wow… 2024. Wild. I can’t believe we’re here.

    Top 5 Tuesday topics: October-December 2023

    Hello friends!! Welcome to the Top 5 Tuesday topics post: October-December 2023!! Look, can I just say there seems to be some sort of wizardry happening this year. Probably last year too. Possibly even since the start of 2020. Some kind of time magic where the year(s) are absolutely just flying by, and I have run out of hours in…

    Hello friends!! Welcome to the Top 5 Tuesday topics post: August-September 2023!! August-September, you ask? Yes.

    Top 5 Tuesday topics: Jan-Mar 2023

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the Top 5 Tuesday topics post: Jan-Mar 2023!! Annoyingly, I wrote this post in mid-December for 2022, but then just got completely distracted by life. So let’s pretend this was still two weeks ago: On one hand I cannot wait for 2022 to be over. On the other hand, HOW is it 2023 already? It still…

    2022 mid year book tag

    Hello friends!! Welcome to the 2022 edition of the mid year book tag. We sometimes call it the mid-year freak out… but that implies I only freak out at mid-year. Which is categorically untrue. So, I’m now calling it a book tag. The mid year book (freak out) tag was created by Ellie (EarlGreyBooks) and Chami (formerly at ReadLikeWildfire). The…

    Hello friends!! Welcome to Top 5 Tuesday!! This week’s topic is top 5 books set at school!! Hilariously, I don’t actually think anyone is at school at the moment.
