Not such a good start | #BoutOfBooks18

    I was supposed to be taking part in #BoutofBooks18 this week, and despite the week not being over yet, I’m afraid to say I’ve failed myself. I realise this read-a-thon is a no pressure thing, but I rather think I signed up prematurely. As in, I thought I could do it, but I can’t. I didn’t make a TBR for it, because I didn’t want to tie myself down to anything. However, I had been classing my reread of Harry Potter as part […]

It’s 2017… Now what? | Plans and things

I suppose I should start this post off with a list, a monologue about how this year will be different, and I’ll  make some resolutions and claim I’ll fulfil them all. Unfortunately, I just can’t be arsed. 2016 was one of my best years, and to be honest, I’m not that excited for 2017. I’m just not. Financial problems have made it so I can’t really do as much as I’d like. I’m still as fucked up health wise and still screwed on the job […]


TV SHOWS YOU SHOULD ALL BE WATCHING!

TV SHOWS YOU SHOULD ALL BE WATCHING!

Hey everyone. It’s nearly Christmas! OH MY GOD. Can you believe the year is almost over? I don’t want 2017 to arrive yet. I don’t wannaaaaaa! Lately I’ve been getting into some pretty awesome tv shows, either on regular TV or Netflix, and also Amazon Prime (for a short time). I was going to do a video for this, but I felt that my blog could use some content for a change. So now I’m going to pimp the hell out of some of the […]



FIVE BOOKS OF 2016 I’VE LOVED | #YAXmasTour

FIVE BOOKS OF 2016 I’VE LOVED | #YAXmasTour

OKAY guys, I’ll admit. I forgot about this post. So it’s nearly 9PM and I’m winging it. THAT’S THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS, RIGHT?  RIGHT. So I thought, what kinda thing could I post that would be fun, interesting, and y’know…book related. Because that’s how I roll. I thought about what books I’ve loved over this past year (though the year technically isn’t over yet, so this is like…a rough version.) I chose five, because dammit, it’s such a hard topic, I wanted to keep it as basic […]




‘WAITING ON’ WEDNESDAY: Take The Key And Lock Her Up by Ally Carter

‘WAITING ON’ WEDNESDAY: Take The Key And Lock Her Up by Ally Carter

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking The Spines every Wednesday, showing off which book we’re most excited for.               (click on picture to be taken to Amazon) The third and final instalment in the thrilling Embassy Row series. Grace has discovered that she’s the lost princess of Adria … but some people would prefer she stay lost. With her brother’s life hanging in the balance and secret assassins everywhere, life on Embassy Row has never been more dangerous. […]


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

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 […]


Did somebody say #NaNoWriMo?

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 […]
