    A-Z Bookish Tag

    Good morning bookworms! This morning I am so excited to come to you with this tag!! I had seen it doing the rounds for AGES and was somewhat sad (and slightly miffed 😂) that no one had tagged me in it. In fact, I was on the verge of stealing it from someone’s blog when the amazing Bex @ Becca…

    The 80's Movie tag

    Good morning bookworms! A couple of weeks ago I was tagged by the lovely Siobhan at Siobhan’s Novelties to do the 80’s Movie tag.

    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…

    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.

    Due to travel, I read a much larger number of ebooks than I normally do, but I also think I must have read them faster, because I seemed to tear through them, which was good as it gave me a pretty good head start on my 70 book aim for the year. Although Goodreads has been classifying each issue of…
