Everything I’m Thankful For | #TheThanksUGive

Everything I’m Thankful For | #TheThanksUGive

  I signed up to take part in The Thanks U Give blog hop, which is hosted by Hazel from Stay Bookish and Mishma from Chasing Faerytales.  I’m in the United Kingdom, and over here…we don’t celebrate a thanksgiving day. I’ll not hide the fact that I find it cheesy, but I will admit that maybe we’re the idiots because we don’t have such a day. I don’t get gushy and say how thankful I am for things. I think a lot of Brits are like that. […]

Slowly, Slowly, Catchy Monkey | Week 3 of #NaNoWriMo2016

2016 WEEK 3 UPDATE Ugh, what a week. Nano is not going strong for me, though, I’ll start you off with something good: I reached my original 30k goal! So that means I’ve now changed my goal to 40k. I’m so pleased because at one point I wondered if I’d make it. I’m not near the end of the story – even though I have notes on roughly what I want to happen, I still have no idea how I’m going to get there. Sigh. […]

What are words? | Week 1 of #NaNoWriMo2016

Guys, guys, guys…HALP? I honestly don’t know why I chose to do this. I mean…50k in a month? Am I mad? YES. Yes, I am. So as I forgot to actually VLOG this week, I realise I’d have to do a written post about my progress so far. WHUUUUUT WHYYYY CRIES Okay, enough dramatics.  I’ve been pretty behind on my word count, but not as much as in previous years. I’m  holding up well. Here’s a break down: Tuesday 1st November: I kinda cheated this day […]





Review: 4 stars to Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) by Sarah J. Maas

Review: 4 stars to Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) by Sarah J. Maas

Consumed by guilt and rage, Celaena can’t bring herself to spill blood for the King of Adarlan. She must fight back… The Immortal Queen will help her destroy the king – for a price. But as Celaena battles with her darkest memories and her heart breaks for a love that could never last, can she fulfil the bargain and head the almighty court of Terrasen? And who will stand with her?   (DISCLAIMER: CONTAINS SWEARING BECAUSE I’M IN ONE OF THOSE MOODS. SORRY.) Review: Who […]

Did somebody say #NaNoWriMo?

I was going to make a video, proclaiming how I would be taking part in the greatest writing challenges of our generation, NaNoWriMo. It would have been magical. Sigh. But, because I am still ill – though honestly, I’ve been ill for a lot longer than this before but for some reason this seems exceptionally long and therefore I am 1000% done – and I can’t exactly TALK properly without coughing like a crack addict (do crack addicts cough? I dunno. I would have put ‘smokers’ […]

Update | A weekly summary | Lots of Gifs | The Struggle Is Real

Who needs bookshelves, really?  Bookworms. And you want to know the problem with book shelves?  Books. Why? I don’t know about you, but I constantly rearrange my books, they always leave me frustrated. I mean, why can’t they just…Align? Match? Be the right height? Why can’t they sit still, stop leaning, be quiet? I recently moved some of the books from my TBR bookcase to my regular bookcase, and now there are books I haven’t read hidden among books I have read. I don’t have OCD […]
