    NCIS LA book tag

    Good morning bookworms! Well, we’re less than a week from Christmas and this year has just FLOWN by. I’m so ridiculously behind on tags at the moment that I think I’m going to have to schedule a day of the week for them for catching up next year!! However, today’s tag is brought to us by the amazing Clo @ Cuppa Clo. Clo and I both love NCIS LA and when she said she was creating a tag for it, I basically squeeeeeed with joy, jumped up and down, and…

    Waffle book tag

    Good morning bookworms! I am a little late with yesterday today’s post. I’ve had a really busy week with work and travel, and yesterday I was sitting on the plane drafting this for you all (photo evidence attached!!). Then when I landed I forgot to post, and I still need to finish my monthly wrap up and challenge wrap up for November too! But I WILL get there!! Back in September the lovely Siobhan @ Siobhan’s Novelties tagged me in the Waffle book tag, and I am so pleased because…

    Book recommendations: Overwatch edition #3

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome back to another edition of… books I would recommend to Overwatch characters! (Click here for edition 1, and edition 2!) So, I must admit, I was expecting some new characters to be announced at BlizzCon earlier this month… but they announced Overwatch 2 instead!! Which is exciting!! It’s still in development, but I’m looking forward to finding out more!! And the new short made me cry (not surprising… but it was a happy cry), and I can’t wait to show you it after we get through all…

    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 Leighanne tagged me to do it! (Thanks for saving me Bex!) There’s no actual rules, but I feel weird diving straight into a post, so I’m making them up…? (I…

    The Sleeping Beauty book tag

    Good morning bookworms! The lovely Siobhan at Siobhan’s Novelties has tagged me in the Sleeping Beauty tag. I love this tag because even though The Little Mermaid was my fave movie as a kid, Aurora was my favourite princess. I mean, how can you not love her? She has two of the loveliest names and SHE NAPS. Napping is my favourite hobby, after reading. Best Princess ever… after Merida (because I can’t go past a Princess who could shoot you either).

    Top 5… books I need to read in 2019

    Good morning bookworms! Brief interlude: OMG I am finally home!! Technically we got home yesterday just after lunch, but after driving just over 1100km (~685 miles) in 1.5 days I am EXHAUSTED! Also, still on my summer holidays for another 3 weeks, so plenty of time to keep reading. (Also, I literally read 1.5 books while I was away, and that 1 book that I finished? It was Saga Vol 1 which is like 10 pages… FFS Meeghan!! Why did you lug that suitcase of books around everywhere with you?!)…

    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…
