  • Sunshine Blogger Award #9

    Good morning bookworms! I know today would normally be Top 5 Tuesday, but Shanah is on a mini hiatus while she has the best sounding break – so I thought, “why don’t I try and catch up on some tags?!” So, the lovely Siobhan @ Siobhan’s novelties tagged me in the Sunshine blogger award back in June! (I mean, I’m kind of catching up?!) Rules Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to their blogging site. Answer the questions. Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11…

    Book recommendations: Overwatch edition #2

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome back to another edition of… books I would recommend to Overwatch characters! (Click HERE for edition 1) Also, shout out to my team New York Excelsior (NYXL) for their hard work in the play-offs. The Vancouver game was hard to watch, and while they pulled off a stunning win for a couple of maps, they eventually went down 4-3. 😭😭 We’ll get them next year!! So, today’s backstory that I’m going to share is Reinhardt. This is another terribly sad story with a beautiful redemption arc, and…

    'I Dare You' Book Tag

    Good morning bookworms! The beautiful and bubbly Cassie @ Let’s Get Galactic tagged me in this… a while ago! But, I’m keeping Fridays for catching up on these things!! If you don’t know Cassie’s blog, PLEASE go check it out. She’s a bright and sparkly rainbow of a person, even while ranting, and I adore her (and her hair). What book has been on your shelf the longest? The Winnie-the-Pooh hardcover set from my childhood by A. A. Milne. Winnie is blue, and The House at Pooh Corner is red. I…

Now is about the time when we start to get our blankets out and put the hammock away!! And if I had a roaring fire,…

    The Romance Reader Book Tag

    Good morning bookworms! Given we are currently in the week of Valentine’s Day, I thought it would be appropriate to do this tag. I saw is on Lili’s Blissful Pages last year. However, I’m not entirely sure how interesting this is going to be for you guys, because I don’t really read novels from the romance genre. I do read cute YA contemporaries that have some romance in them and the occasional adult drama/chick-lit with romance, and also fantasties that have blisteringly raunchy scenes though, so that’s where you’ll probably…

    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…
