Book Tag | Spring Cleaning

Book Tag | Spring Cleaning

I’ve seem quite a few people joining in with this great Spring Cleaning tag and couldn’t resist joining in too, especially given our recent spring cleaning session.

The struggle of getting started: A book or series you struggle to begin because of its size

At 600 pages, Children of Time is a beast (in more ways than one) and definitely intimidated me before I picked it up. It was sat on my TBR for a long time before I finally got my hands on a physical copy, and then sat on my bookshelf being a large book friend for a few months before I finally read it. Once I started though I couldn’t stop because it’s a phenomenal book.

Book Tag |The Blog Glo-Up

Book Tag |The Blog Glo-Up

In honor of her blog’s third anniversary this month, Wendy tagged me in the ‘Blog Glo-Up Tag‘ that she created to celebrate. I’ve been aware that I haven’t been posting many book tags recently but have been eager to get back into doing book tag Thursdays and, as next month will be my own two year blogging anniversary, I thought this one would be perfect.

Rules: 

  1. Credit the original creator, whatthelog
  2. Answer the questions!
  3. Tag as many or as few people as you like

Wrap Up | January 2019

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! Despite not reviewing them, I still get a lot of people who tell me that they read one of my faves though I never reviewed them.

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

Book Tag | The Last 10

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!
