January wrap up & February TBR

January was a strange month, but it ended up being very good for my reading goals. I set myself a tbr of 6 books from my bookshelves and 4 arcs. I managed to read 5 of my owned books and 3 of those arcs, and an additional 4 other books to bring my January total… Continue reading January wrap up & February TBR

Review: Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko

Raybearer was my first read of 2021 and I couldn't have picked a better book to start the year. After my passion for reading was dwindling towards the end of 2020 Ifueko has absolutely blown me away. Nothing is more important than loyalty. But what if you’ve sworn to protect the one you were born… Continue reading Review: Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko

blether breakdown

Blether Breakdown: Bonnie

As part of my launching my blog properly I wanted to add in more interesting or unique blog features. What better way to make things more unusual to try and loosely connect Scots words/phrases to bookish lists? Bear with me, some of these connections from the meaning of the word to the idea for the list might be a little loose.

mystery/thriller, review

Review: The Survivors by Jane Harper

A delightful coincidence lead me to pick up The Bone Ships. It was the first book I received in a bespoke book subscription I purchased and the blurb on the back of the book had me interested. Cut to a few months later, and I get approved for the second book in the trilogy on Netgalley. I decided to dive into this series and read the first two books close together.

January TBR

Its that time again to share the books I am planning on reading over the next 31 days. I decided to rethink how I used monthly tbrs and what aspects would work for me when looking to achieving my goals. The structure of a tbr keeps me motivated in a month to read all the… Continue reading January TBR

Tome Topple Round 13

I'm going to use Tome Topple to try and reinject my year with reading motivation. I seemed to take October and half of November off for a holiday from reading. I am close to reaching my goal for the year so I'm going to try and make the second half of November finish with a bang! Tome Topple is a readathon dedicated to reading long books, so anything over 500 pages counts!
