my reading pile

April 2, 2015

I’m experiencing one of those common bookish problems where I can’t seem to settle on reading one book. I could contradict myself in saying there will, and always will, be a book that I’ve started reading, placed a bookmark in, and begun reading something else. But there’s always one book that takes all your time. […]

Been doing a tad bit of travelling recently (thanks to my other life) and aside from discovering new places one of my favourite perks of visiting new areas is stumbling upon the quaintest of shops. Do love myself a brilliant charity shop but the most thrilling yet calming place to find, of course, is a bookshop. […]

First of all, I have a confession to make. Have come to the conclusion I am not cut out for a post a week, never mind one everyday. The whole idea of ‘book blogging’ is you read, you review, read, review, read, review, jabber on about some book related topic then read and review. However, […]

In today’s mail I received the lovely Ellen Renner’s new book TRIBUTE  due to be out in March of next year (thank you Hot Key Books). Must say I’m rather looking forward to reading as I’ve read a few of Renner’s books before and really enjoyed them. I’m also particular intrigued by a quote on […]

Latest trends. What’s in. A mass of people all liking the same particular thing as exactly the same time. Creating a buzz about a product, a person, a thing and hyping it. Now, if you know me, you know I try to not go with the crowd. To be painfully honest, one could even go so […]

Hello you lot! It’s been a few years. Honestly didn’t realise how long it’s been and I’m very sorry for abandoning you all (the so many of you, ahem) but the usual school got in the way and recently (in the past two years) I’ve had a bit of a career change. By that I […]
