Making up for Monday – Do you have an author you will read anything they put out?

button_zpsf54ece10There aren’t many authors who I am completely sold by. There are some I really like, but most of the time, I get bored by the repetitiveness that comes from reading everything ever put out by a single author (mainly because I usually read them back to back once I have discovered them).  Continue reading “Making up for Monday – Do you have an author you will read anything they put out?”

Making up for Monday – Refusing to read authors

button_zpsf54ece10This week’s making up for Monday has been written to avoid the unpleasant task of packing our bags to perfectly fit the weight restrictions on Jetstar. We are under our overall weight limit, but we really need to learn to share the weight around all of the bags a little bit more evenly.

Making up for Monday

button_zpsf54ece10It has been a while since I have done this because my Monday’s haven’t needed making up for, but as I sit in a hotel lobby because our pick-up is now not leaving until 3 hours after it’s scheduled time, I have decided to rekindle it, because why not?

Making up for Monday – A double bill

button_zpsf54ece10Last Monday, I spent the whole of Monday either on a train or at the bridge over the River Kwai. To be honest, there wasn’t much to make up for, it was a great day and I got to go somewhere new that I didn’t think I would make it to. It did mean that I neglected to do a Making up for Monday post, so I have decided to make the most of my days relaxing and do a double Making up for Monday feature.

Making up for Monday – Short and Sweet

button_zpsf54ece10Have you ever read a book that is so emotionally draining that you couldn’t complete it, or had to set it aside?

I don’t know if this says a lot about the types of books I read, or about me, but I can definitely say that I have never done this. ‘Emotionally draining’ are two words that I never think of when I read a book. Tiring, sleep depriving definitely, but not emotionally draining. Oh well, eh?

I’ve read things that are draining because they were so rubbish, or in the case of J G Ballard’s Crash, absolutely disgusting.

Making up for Monday – February 16th

button_zpsf54ece10I can’t believe that I will leave Roi-Et behind in less than 2 weeks. 2 WEEKS, that really is no time at all. These past few months have flown by crazy fast. I thought leaving everything behind would be easy, but turns out, I’ve really grown attached to this place. Continue reading “Making up for Monday – February 16th”

Making up for Monday – February 9th

button_zpsf54ece10Well, look at me remembering to keep up with a book meme! This weekend has been absolutely crazy, today is no different, so I’ve got next to know reading done. I know I said I would have a lot of free time sitting on a bus, but they were night buses so I couldn’t see the screen of my nook once the lights were turned off, and I needed to try and sleep!

Making up for Monday

button_zpsf54ece10This week, for the first time in a long time, I actually sort of kinda read what I said I would do on my TBR. I know, I know, thank you, thank you, it really is quite the achievement. I’d like to thank…. Continue reading “Making up for Monday”
