T5W: Characters I WOULDN’T Want to Trade Places With


I am writing this tired on a Tuesday evening, The good kind of tired though. I’ve had a super productive day. I’ve been to work, driven to my Emma’s to pick her stuff (and her) up, packed and then unpacked the car, and helped sort some of the stuff now as she is officially a resident of Liverpool.

Bout of Books 17: Day 5

bout of booksI hate how quick Bout of Books goes. It’s just over too soon, every time! And while I may not be having a great Bout of Books in terms of reading, I have enjoyed the challenges so far. It’s just a shame that the twitter chats are so US based in terms of time-zones that I haven’t interacted with other book lovers as much as I would have liked so far. Still a few days to remedy that I suppose! Continue reading “Bout of Books 17: Day 5”

Bout of Books – Day 2

I wrote yesterday that I am ahead of this Bout of Books,  and while this is technically true, I feel woefully behind on my pages read v pages left to read ratio. 269 pages wasn’t bad, but I have 5 lessons today, rather than the 2 of yesterday. Hopefully, I won’t spend as long completing the challenge(s) as yesterday.

TBR? What TBR?

Guys, I am in complete denial that I ever decided to try and keep up to date with a TBR whilst travelling. It was a bit of a lost cause from the beginning really, let’s be honest. Not that I haven’t been reading, I’ve shifted through the pages on the long bus journeys, it’s just they weren’t really the books I planned to read. So, as fast as I decided TBR’s were the best way to read, I have decided that they’re not for me.  Continue reading “TBR? What TBR?”
