My Royal Court Book Tag

Here in the UK, it's the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend, a time when pubs are allowed to stay open until 1am and half the population probably won't remember half of the event. As for me (at the time of writing), I just hope the Queen and Brian May (who's going to be playing at the… Continue reading My Royal Court Book Tag

The 2021 Good News Tag

This was inspired by the 2021 Book Tag by Phoenix @ Books with Wings. At first, I wanted to make a UK equivalent of it...but then I realised that 2021 was not a great year for the UK. In fact, the main news stories were deaths, murders and general chaos. I don't want to make… Continue reading The 2021 Good News Tag

Blogmas 2021 Day 31: December Reading Corner 2021

I think Blogmas has been a success. I think I've figured out what I'm going to do in place of thrice-weekly One Word review too. I'll instead do one review per week and do mini reviews for the other books I read that week. That should take a bit of the pressure off me, at… Continue reading Blogmas 2021 Day 31: December Reading Corner 2021

Blogmas 2021 Day 30: 2021 Reading Challenge Check In (6 out of 6) FINAL

I think this might be the first time I completed my reading challenges without having to rush through anything at the last minute. I managed to complete my last reading challenge with a week to spare. Either I'm getting better at organising my time or I'm getting better at picking short books. Goodreads 2021 Reading… Continue reading Blogmas 2021 Day 30: 2021 Reading Challenge Check In (6 out of 6) FINAL

Blogmas 2021 Day 22: Best Sequels of 2021

Time to rank the best sequels of 2021. I did finish a couple of trilogies this year so, if I've also read the next book after that sequel, I'll include it in the entry too, just to make sure there's enough variety in the list. The Tea Dragon Festival and The Tea Dragon Tapestry by… Continue reading Blogmas 2021 Day 22: Best Sequels of 2021

Blogmas 2021 Day 1: December Reading Challenge TBR

Let's start this Blogmas off with a classic: the books I want to read this December. Compared to last year, when I had to rush through a mound of Discworld books to get the end to my Turtle Recall Reading Challenge, this one is a fairly gentle challenge. I finished my Pretty Mess Reading Challenge… Continue reading Blogmas 2021 Day 1: December Reading Challenge TBR

November Reading Corner

Against all odds, Nanowrimo has gone well for me. It's astonishing, considering that I was almost 5000 words behind near the beginning of the month. Now, at the time of writing, I've got less than 1500 words to go. I still haven't decided what I'm going to do in place of One Word reviews and… Continue reading November Reading Corner
