Memo Pad: November Book Wrap Up

It's nearly December! Christmas time! And I have officially got my owned tbr down to just 50 books which was my goal way back in June when I went on my book buying ban! My goal for next year will be to keep that number from going above 50 which means however many books I… Continue reading Memo Pad: November Book Wrap Up

Book series I bought and haven’t read yet (Book series #4)

It's time for another look at the book series. I've talked about book series I loved but DNF'd, book series I've started and will keep reading, and book series where I'm waiting for the next book to be released.

Memo Pad: June Book Wrap up

It's June which means it's summer, the world cup and most importantly it was my birthday this month. I got older (unfortunately I haven't found a way of having birthdays without that side effect). And after my mini book haul from my birthday money I am officially stating that I am on a book buying… Continue reading Memo Pad: June Book Wrap up

Series I loved but won’t finish

I really don't talk about book series much and there's so many to talk about. Mainly, that I'm really bad at reading them! I'm terrible at finishing a series of books as I'm a mood reader and I either read the whole series in a week or I don't feel like picking the next book… Continue reading Series I loved but won’t finish

Book Tropes I need more of – Rec me!

I've been thinking recently about book tropes, and finding books we are going to love. But first, incase anyone doesn't know what I am talking about, what is a trope? Google tells me it's "a significant or recurring theme" and when used in the context of books it tends to mean an element of the… Continue reading Book Tropes I need more of – Rec me!

Memo Pad: Holiday Books

So last week I shared my holiday TBR with you. It had eight books on it and I knew I'd never read that many but I was hoping to read six of them while I was away. That didn't happen as I got sick halfway through my holiday and my brain basically died so I… Continue reading Memo Pad: Holiday Books

Pre-Holiday Haul

There's nothing like a holiday to burn a hole in my bank account and I'm not even talking about the actual holiday or the travel insurance that I had to renew. It's all those little things you have to buy in. Some of them are boring holiday stuff like suntan lotion but I'm going to… Continue reading Pre-Holiday Haul

Memo Pad: Indieathon Books

I'm officially leaving to go on holiday today which means an end to taking part in indieathon. I already had a holiday TBR before I found out about indieathon but I decided to take part for the first couple of weeks of March because I think self published and small press books deserve more of… Continue reading Memo Pad: Indieathon Books
