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 […]


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. […]

Howdy everyone! Another week, another blogger to promote. Today is all about Krystianna from Downright Dystopian. She’ll be telling us about her reading habits with the Reader Problems Book Tag. Take it away, girl! 🙂 1: You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next? If I had that many books on my TBR, I’d probably just close my eyes and point to all the books. Whichever one I was pointing directly at is the one […]

The Readers Confession Tag

The Readers Confession Tag

Hey guys. So I was tagged by Alisha over at Reality’s A Bore to do this and I will give it my best shot. I can’t promise it’ll be as interesting as hers, but hey… 1. Have you ever damaged a book? Not intentionally, no. I like to treat my books with the care I don’t always treat myself. It’s like…no…I love my books. Maybe the odd one or two gets roughed up, but that’s probably from back before I gave a crap. Haha. 2. Have […]

    Good day, all. Here’s another TTT going and this one is about 10 Of My Most Recent 5 Star Reads (Or Ten Of The Best Books I’ve Read Recently if you don’t 5 star stuff…or you could do 5 of my latest five star reads & five of my most disappointing or 1 star reads).

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven’t Talked About Enough

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven’t Talked About Enough

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s task is to list Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven’t Talked About Enough/In A While. There are a number of books I’ve read over the years that I just don’t talk about because, well, I just don’t know. So most of these are actually book series, so I’m counting each one as a single book because otherwise we’d be here forever, ‘kay? In no particular order. […]


What what? – Updates!

Hey guys. Has it really been so long since my last post???? I missed doing the blogging extravaganza posts last week because…yeah, I was ill. Still, kinda, am. I mean, I’m on the outs as far as feeling like shit goes. This cold hit me like a full on hurricane of snot. (ew!) Anyway, I have somethings to catch you up on. *First off, I did manage some reading while ill. Not traditional stuff, though, I mean, I couldn’t wear my glasses for half the […]

Get Up Offa That Slump: A Blogging Extravaganza – Bookish Things You’d Give a Kidney For

  Hey there, it’s Day 2 of this wonderful challenge set by Rachel at Beauty and the Bookshelf. This time it’s about all the bookish things I’d give a kidney for, as it was World Kidney Day on the 10th. So here goes. What would I give a kidney for? Hmm… Let’s see. *A bigger bedroom– I know, it sounds silly and petty but I’ve had a bedroom the size of a box (not literally, it just feels like it) for 22 years (while living in […]

Well hello there. I love challenges, especially when it comes to blogging because it really helps me stretch my boundaries. So here’s the first task – to interview myself. Okay, so that might sound weird but hey, trust me. It’ll be fun. I hope. 🙂   What’s your name? Hey! How’re ya doing? My name is Kat. Kat…? Well, Katheryn. But whatever, right?
