Life Lately #14

Time literally seems to be flying by these days. I mean, how is it November already? October seems to have passed in a bit of a blur, but thankfully I’ve actually got some things to report this month! I started the month with a week off work, which was great, and I managed to do a few things: I met… Read more »

On Being A Kindle Convert

On Being A Kindle Convert

Years ago, I would never have thought this day would come…the day when I, Laura, would be singing the praises of an e-reader. Literally, since the release of e-readers, I’ve been resisting them. Despite their obvious advantages, to embrace a digitalized way of reading seemed like a betrayal against my beloved books. And books had been my constant companion since… Read more »

These days I genuinely seem to be struggling to think of things to write about in these updates, which is probably a sign I need to get out more… I say it every month, that hopefully next month I’ll get out and do more things, and then life happens and I find myself day after day getting home from work… Read more »

My Book Cover Pet Peeves

My Book Cover Pet Peeves

We all know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but let’s be real here: we all do it. However much you tell yourself that it’s the story and characters that are important, there are certain things that we see on book covers that really turn us off, and make us much less likely to buy or read a… Read more »

Life Lately #12

August seemed like one of those months where literally all I did was go to work and come home, which kind of sucks. Especially as the weather has been so beautiful, and it really doesn’t feel like I’ve made the most of it. I haven’t done a single summery thing: not one trip to the beach or barbecue! I haven’t… Read more »

Has blogging changed your reading habits?

Has blogging changed your reading habits?

A couple of weeks ago I posted 15 Book Blog Post Ideas, and one of my ideas was ‘has blogging changed your reading habits?’ I hadn’t actually done a post about that topic myself, so I thought it was about time I did! I’ve actually noticed quite a lot of significant changes in my reading habits since I started blogging… Read more »

Do you have to own the books you love?

Do you have to own the books you love?

There’s nothing better than going to the library, picking up a random book, and then absolutely loving it. I mean, you got to read an amazing book for free! What’s not to love? Well if you’re me, then there’s plenty about that situation not to love. Mainly the bit where I have to return the amazing book back to the… Read more »

Life Lately #11

Is it me, or does July seem to have flown by? Maybe it’s because I’ve had a fairly eventful month, or perhaps it’s just the shock of realising we’re now over halfway through 2017! I started July with a few days off work to celebrate mine and my boyfriend’s second anniversary, which was definitely a nice start to the month!… Read more »

The Pros and Cons of the Goodreads Challenge

The Pros and Cons of the Goodreads Challenge

The Goodreads Challenge is something I’ve been aware of for a long time: after all, almost every book blogger I know of seems to do it. However, its only been this year that I’ve started taking part, and I really have no idea why it’s taken me this long. I think the thing that finally made me decide to take… Read more »

Life Lately #10

So the month of June has been fairly uneventful for me. For the most part the weather here has been nice, although this last week its been very changeable. As in, you can go outside in the sunshine in the morning, and be returning drenched and shivering from the rain in your shorts and vest top in the afternoon. Not… Read more »
