    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.

There’s no actual rules, but I feel weird diving straight into a post, so I’m making them up…? (I…

    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. This tag was originally created by Ashley at Infinite Library and she created the cutest graphics to go along with it (that I’m pretty sure everyone has borrowed as well)! I’m pretty excited about this tag! However, despite being a child of the 80’s, my parents weren’t really into television and movies, instead preferring music and books, so I’ve actually not seen the majority of these films!…
