Bookriot’s Read Harder – Reading Challenge

Bookriot’s Read Harder – Reading Challenge

I saw Byron talk about the Bookriot “Read Harder” Reading Challenge and it sounded like the perfect way to read more diversely. Feel free to fill in the list for yourself! And let me know if you decide to take on the challenge yourself! An epistolary novel or collection of letters I’ve been meaning to read Persuasion by Jane Austen. What a happy coincidence that this one happens to be an epistolary novel. An alternate history novel The Underground Railroad…

Books I'm taking with me on holiday

Books I'm taking with me on holiday

Tonight I’m leaving on holiday. *does happy dance* We’re driving to the South of France *hurray* with two little kids *sigh* and it will take us about 12 hours… *sigh again* Of course I’m taking books with me!!! I’m in a bit of weird place reading-wise. The last thing I read and finished was the ACOTAR series which means I’m kinda on a roll when it comes to fantasy. I’m actually in the middle of Strange The Dreamer and that’s…

Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite LGBTQ+ Reads

Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite LGBTQ+ Reads

Okay, here goes… I don’t read a lot of LGBTQ+ books. It’s not a concious descision, it’s not that I don’t want to, I can’t remember enough to fill a top 5 Wednesday list.
The only one I can 100% recommend is The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller which was one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read.
So I’m making this into a Top 5 LGBTQ+ books I have on my TBR – list.
Then you can tell me which ones I should get to first. Deal?

Booktubeathon 2016 – TBR

Hurray, it’s booktubeathon time again! Unfortunately, I’m working Monday to Friday so I’m not sure how much reading time I’ll have. (I feel like I say that all the time, but it’s just the way it is..) I made a TBR pile to go with the reading challenges and I thought I’d share it with you. 1 – A book with yellow on the cover I chose Ragnarok by A.S. Byatt because a) I’m already halfway through and I really…

To be Read Book TAG

To be Read Book TAG

Thank you to Erin (Reading with Wrin) for tagging me in her blogpost. I love books. I love reading them, browsing for them in shops and just looking at them on my shelf. Loving books can be dangerous.. Before you know it, you have a wall filled with books you are yet to read. I try to keep my TBR shelf under control but every now and then, I give in to the temptation and I buy all the pretty…

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! I did it! I blogged every day for 25 days! Okay, it was close more than once šŸ˜‰ but I’m happy that I wrote all the posts anyway. Thank you to everyone who has been following my progress. Since we’re nearing the end of the year, everyone is looking forward to the upcoming book releases in 2016 but I feel like I’m not finished with 2015 yet. I read some really good books this year, but I’ve also…

Blogmas Day 2: My Christmas TBR

Blogmas Day 2: My Christmas TBR

I don’t normally plan TBR’s but I thought I would do one for this month. Being unemployed also means extra reading time when I’m not going on interviews or searching the world-wide web for job openings. Extra reading time means that I feel obliged to work my way through some of the books that have been on my shelf for a while, along with some that I really want to read. I probably won’t finish all of these books but…
