Lots of bloggers seem to do weekly or monthly updates on life, blogging and reading (I know the Sunday Post is a popular one), and as an incredibly nosey person, I always enjoy reading them! I kind of wanted to start doing some kind of update post myself just to share what I’m currently reading, and what I’m currently up to, but I’m neither interesting enough to have something new to say every week, or organised enough to set up a post on the same day each week.
So I’ve decided to just do random life/reading/writing update posts in a typically sporadic fashion whenever I feel like it! Hooray!
This month has actually been surprisingly eventful! Not only do I have a new niece who was born at the end of July, but I’ve also moved out of the flat I was renting with my friend and sister and back into my mum and dad’s house (it’s a long story, but my sister has moved in with her boyfriend and the rent was a bit pricey with just the two of us!).
Whilst technically I guess this is a bit of a step back in the ‘being an adult’ department, I’m really enjoying it so far! For one thing I have now rejoined the world of WiFi (hooray!), plus there’s food there and my room is really nice (and of course my lovely parents are there…and the dog!). For now I’m just going to enjoy it (and the extra money that comes from paying fewer bills and less rent!) whilst I try and get a job nearer to where my boyfriend lives, and then I can move in with him.
In terms of life news, I’m also going to be walking up Mount Snowdon, the highest point in Wales in a few days with my friend for charity. We have of course done absolutely no training, so I feel like it’s going to be tough! I’m sure the view from the top will be worth it though (I’ll be posting pictures!), plus we have already raised over £300 for charity in sponsorships, which is the most important thing!
I recently got a smaller camera so that I can actually take it round with me easily, as opposed to lugging a DSLR everywhere or missing photo oppurtunities, so I thought I’d share a few of the snaps I’ve taken whilst out and about.
My friend and I took a stroll at the Albert Docks in Liverpool the other night, and not only did I catch plenty of Pokemon (yep, I’m a Pokemon Go-er) but I also took some pretty pictures of the sunset across the Mersey, and some of the docks and radio tower (plus some ride that has suddenly appeared, that made me feel sick just looking at it!).
I’m currently reading We Were Liars by E. Lockhart, which is a book I’ve been meaning to read for so long! I’ve really enjoyed it so far, although I haven’t had as much chance to read over the last couple of days, so my progress has been fairly slow.
After this I have a choice of either reading the last two volumes of Death Note, finally reading Outlander or starting Second Life by S.J. Watson, which I just picked up the other day.
Some of my favourite posts I’ve written recently have been:
- Bookish Fashion
- Bloggers: Do you get ‘comment guilt’?
- My ‘Five Reasons To Read’ series: Five Reasons To Read Historical Fiction, Five Reasons To Read Fantasy, Five Reasons To Read YA.
- What makes a good book cover?
I’ll hopefully be posting a new writing post soon, seen as I only realised the other day how long it’s been since I talked about writing on here!
I’m also trying to make more of an effort these days with my Bookstagram account, which is something I’ve tended to be pretty up and down with in the past. I’m even trying to stick to a colour scheme of blue and pink (to match my blog), so we’ll see how long that lasts before I get bored of it!
If you’re on Instagram let me know, as I’m looking for more accounts to follow!
So what have you been reading/blogging/doing lately?
