30 Kindle Books I Own But Haven’t Read

30 Kindle Books I Own But Haven’t Read

I’m a person who loves a good bargain, and that’s one of the things I love most about my Kindle: Amazon has monthly and daily deals on various books, meaning you can often snap up an incredible bargain! I think this is amazing, but it’s also led to me having a huge backlog of unread books on my Kindle…like literally,… Read more »

My Top 5 Leigh Bardugo Characters

My Top 5 Leigh Bardugo Characters

So…is everyone else super excited that Leigh Bardugo has a new book coming out at the end of this month? And is it just me, or is it even more exciting that this new book is all about Nikolai Lantsov, my absolute favourite Leigh Bardugo character (spoiler alert for this list!)? And calling Nikolai my favourite is really saying something,… Read more »

My Favourite Book Covers

My Favourite Book Covers

As much as we tell ourselves it’s the plot or the blurb that sells a book to us, I think a lot of us wouldn’t even bother to pick up a book in a bookshop if we weren’t first attracted to the cover. The front cover is the first chance a book has to impress is, and us bookworms want… Read more »

My Favourite Fictional Royalty

My Favourite Fictional Royalty

A huge trope in the fantasy genre is characters who are royalty, and whilst it has been done over and over, I actually really love this fantasy stereotype! Having characters who are kings and queens, or princes and princesses pretty much guarantees that the story is going to epic in proportion: when royalty is involved, treachery will be rife, wars… Read more »

3 More Great Podcasts For Writers

3 More Great Podcasts For Writers

In the past few years I’ve discovered the wonderful world of podcasts, and I now listen to them most of the time when I’m in my car on the way to work, or through my earphones when I’m walking the dog. They’re a great way of getting that much needed dash of inspiration, and learning through other people’s experience. Whilst… Read more »

Life Lately #25

Life Lately #25

This month has been a month of catching up with people! Seen as my boyfriend has been working the past few Saturdays, I’ve spent them seeing friends I haven’t seen in a while, and hanging out with my sister. One of my catch-ups was at the start of the month, where I met up with a friend at a really… Read more »

10 Books I Own But Haven’t Read

10 Books I Own But Haven’t Read

As with many bookworms, my TBR is endless, and for every book I read, I add about ten more. The problem is that every time I see one of the books on my TBR for a reasonable price I feel compelled to buy it, even though I know I won’t get to it for a while (I mostly blame Tesco with their… Read more »

3 Reasons To Set Writing Goals

3 Reasons To Set Writing Goals

I don’t know about you, but if left to my own devices I get nothing done. I’m a chronic procrastinator, and however much I love writing, when I hit a tough point in my project I’ll do anything I can think of to avoid sitting down in that chair and getting the work done. That’s why I’ve found that setting… Read more »

My Funko Pop Wish List

My Funko Pop Wish List

So in the last few years, Funko Pop figures have become absolutely massive, and you now see them everywhere. At first I couldn’t see what all the fuss was about, but gradually they’ve started to grow on me, with their massive heads and weird beady eyes! Plus the range of characters you can get now is insane, and so inevitably there’s been… Read more »

10 Inspiring Reads

10 Inspiring Reads

Looking back over my Goodreads ‘Read’ shelf recently I realised I’ve read a lot of non-fiction over the last year or so, and so many of them have been super inspiring and interesting. I don’t seem to talk much on this blog about non-fiction though, so I thought it was about time I devoted a post to the genre, and… Read more »
