Wrap Up | January 2019

Thanks to January’s late-a-thon, 2019 is off to a pretty good start. Although I’ve been horrifically busy with my PhD application and starting a new job I was able to get a fair few overdue ARCs finished up as well as (finally) posting to a reasonably consistent level. Thank you to all of you who have been cheering me along my PhD application journey and leaving such ace comments on my posts this month 💚

How to hype your favourite reads

How to hype your favourite reads

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve done a discussion post and today I wanted to discuss with you all different ways that we can hype and support our favourite reads outside of reviews. I think one of the biggest misconceptions about book blogging is that you have to review everything and if you’re not reviewing books then you’re not supporting those books or authors.  Yet, when I recently looked back through my blog posts whilst doing my brand redesign, I noticed that I very rarely review my favourite books. I usually review most of the other books that I read, but I just find reviewing my favourites so hard, I never know what to say!

So, how can we hype up our favourite reads outside of reviewing?

Book Tag | The Last 10

I missed book tag Thursday yesterday because I had my first shift at my new job! I can’t remember if I told you all about it but I’m one of the new operations assistants at a local community centre working part-time while I study. I also had to finish my PhD application which was due in today, so I’ve had a pretty busy few days and fell a bit behind with blogging.

Here’s a fun little tag to catch up on my missed day yesterday!

Book Tag | Musical Shuffle

Book Tag | Musical Shuffle

Becca tagged me in this neat little tag that she created last month and I saved it as something fun to do in the first week of the new year. The aim of the tag is to put your music on shuffle and attribute each song to a character, a book, a ship or whatever bookish thing springs to mind. You can do it for 5-10 songs and then tag anyone you think might enjoy it too!

I don’t really use iTunes so I’m going to attempt to do this on Spotify. As I have about a million different playlists, I’m going to choose a handful of them and pick 1-2 songs from each playlist!
