Can you feel that? It’s the first real cold morning of this year’s Fall. The temperature dropped below 10 degrees into real get your boots on and coats out of the cupboard levels, and my breath could actually be seen in my car. Pumpkin Spiced Lattes are firmly on the menu, Halloween is creeping into the shops, as are the lovely sight of jumpers and boots, and going to the football is soon going to become a lesson in how many layers you can wear and retain the ability to walk easily and sit down painlessly. The leaves are even turning the lovely shades of orange and red that signals Autumn is well and truly here! Continue reading “Fall Book Tag”
I haven’t done one of these tags for quite some time, but the lovely Lucinda @ Lucinda is Reading... tagged me in this little number and it intrigued me. I have quite the fascination in reading posts about what books people don’t like or aren’t interested in that are popular, so it was the perfect time to be tagged, thanks Lucinda!!
Without much preamble, let’s get on with the show: Continue reading “Books I’ll Probably Never Read Tag”
I was looking for a nice tag to do on this Wednesday evening whilst I relaxed and watched the football (if watching the football can be called relaxing). I was looking on Thrice Read, because I think we all know by now that the home of the good book tag is on their blog! And because I love books and cheese, I decided that this was the best tag for me!

It’s a Saturday evening, in the middle of March, and it’s snowing. Again. It’s bloody freezing, and I am sat with a hot water bottle on my knee wrapped up in a blanket like a burrito (it hasn’t stopped me indulging in a little mint choc chip ice cream though). Happy St. Patrick’s day too, I’m celebrating by staying in, reading Ragdoll and watching Jessica Jones. I don’t know what you have planned, but my night is most definitely top notch.
My housemate Emma, over at The Terror of Knowing, introduced me to a hefty 50 question tag consisting of questions that you probably haven’t been asked before. I also enjoyed Emma Oulton’s video post too, her channel Drinking by my Shelf is too hilarious. Combine these two together and I couldn’t resist jumping on the bandwagon. Continue reading “50 Questions You’ve Never Been Asked Tag”
This week saw the world celebrate International Women’s Day. I have to admit, I let it fly by relatively under the radar. The reason, I don’t think I could possibly begin to thank everyone who has had an influence in making me who I am today, or all of the women (and men) who have made me a stronger woman. I would undoubtedly classify myself as a feminist. I definitely want equality for everyone, and so when I saw a feminist book tag @ Karis Books I definitely thought it was perfect timing.
I was having a nosey at some other blogs, and after repeated mentions of Thrice Read by my friend Emma @ The Terror of Knowing, I decided to have a look at their site myself. I stumbled across this tag pretty quickly, and decided it would make a nice Thursday Tag to do.
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
I will read anywhere in the house. I like to read in bed, which is possibly the place I read most often in the house. If not my bed then it’s likely to be in the living room, sprawled on a couch or chair. I also listen to a lot of audiobooks in the kitchen while washing up.
I was looking for a light, fun Sunday post, and found that I had been nominated to complete this by the lovely Wandering Waffles.I haven’t posted as much about travel likely as I should have or would like to have, so this is the perfect way of getting my travel post shoes back on.
