Bookworm Problems of a Mood Reader

Hello, my name is Jessica and I'm a mood reader. I buy books that I don't read, and I don't read books that I do want to read. Now that we've got that confession out of the way, I just want to say that being a mood reader can be great! Maybe you wake up… Continue reading Bookworm Problems of a Mood Reader

Memo Pad: Books – August 2017

I feel like I'm coming out of my reading slump. Maybe. Hopefully. I read four pretty awesome books this month and they were all ARCs and I think the fact they were all great as well as the fact I had to read them to review both helped kick me into reading gear and thank… Continue reading Memo Pad: Books – August 2017

Memo Pad – July Books

This month has been a pretty bad reading month to be honest. I still managed to read four books but at times it was a bit of a struggle. I think I'm still in a slump because of a book hangover but fingers crossed I'm getting over that. And ending the month reading Artemis was… Continue reading Memo Pad – July Books

Mid Year Freakout Book Tag

Following on from the mid year theme of my last post I thought I'd do a bookish version. Normally I don't really read enough books to take part in things like this after a full year but reading is going really well and, having 40 books to pick from already, I thought I'd give the… Continue reading Mid Year Freakout Book Tag

Mid Year Goals – How am I doing?

It's July! Where is the year going? It seems like only a couple weeks ago that I made my new years goals for the year but here we are six months later. I thought it would be good time check in with them (no point making goals if you forget all about them).   Writing… Continue reading Mid Year Goals – How am I doing?

Memo Pad: Book Reviews – June 2017

I only read four new books this month which is the least that I've read in a while but this was purely down to the fact that, only a week after reading them for the first time, I decided to reread the All For The Game trilogy to start the month off (and I have… Continue reading Memo Pad: Book Reviews – June 2017

Memo Pad: Books – May 2017

Woosh! It's the end of another month. I know I say this every month but I can't believe how quickly this year is going. It's summer! I started the month in a bit of a reading slump after my holiday. Having read so many books in such a short amount of time I was expecting… Continue reading Memo Pad: Books – May 2017

Memo Pad: Holiday Books Edition

I read a lot on holiday. Which was awesome! Until I got back and realised I had to write five reviews in a week. Technically, and if you follow me on Twitter you'll know this, I started reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue before I left. In fact I read half of it. So I read… Continue reading Memo Pad: Holiday Books Edition

Memo Pad: Book Reviews April (#1)

This is a bit of a weird Memo Pad. I read a lot of books this month (and last month because technically I read Matilda at the end of last month) and if I put all of the reviews in one post then this will be ridiculously long. Also, and more importantly, I went on… Continue reading Memo Pad: Book Reviews April (#1)
