Yikes. Christmas sure does whiz by you! December was a happy and good reading month for me. I read a couple of my Christmas presents (you can see my Christmas book haul HERE) and a bunch of other exciting books. So who’s excited to do a little recap and see how the month went? Yipee!
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Basically, each Wednesday we have permission to do some serious flailing about in our excitement about one (just one) book that is an up and coming release! Yay!
Now for Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) this week’s theme was 2016 releases (for the first half of the year) and in those weekly posts I get to make a very exciting list of 10 books – so I shan’t be repeating any of the ones I mentioned yesterday. But do check out my list HERE to see what top TEN books I’m excited about. Continue reading →

Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2016
What a great list to make for today! There’s so many amazing books coming out next year (especially in February, keep an eye out then) and I’m super excited for all of them! These aren’t in any particular order. So, without further ado, let’s start counting, shall we? Continue reading →
This book, in one word, is hilarious. It’s the first Neil Gaiman I’ve read (finally) and I will most definitely go and buy every other piece of literature that he’s written now. I could quote this book to the end of time, there’s so many great lines. Especially his reasoning for having just one swear word in tiny font in the whole book. Now, excuse me whilst I go and watch the movie – this story is pure brilliance, I tell you, pure brilliance.
Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas everyone! Okay, it’s too late for that now but I’m sure you all had a fabulous Christmas – I know I did! I went to midnight mass with my family this year and amidst yawns and my off-key singing it was amazing! There was a stunning choir singing all the hymns and one soprano in particular had every jaw dropping.
So that of course meant that we all rolled out of bed at a startling 8am (we’re usually up by 6am, mostly because I forget I’m no-longer 5 years old on Christmas morning and run around jumping on everyone’s bed screaming IT’S CHRISTMAS!). We have our stockings to open from ‘Santa’ (not because myself or my siblings are young, we just can’t kick the habit) when we get up and later we do presents from under the tree from family and friends. 10 points if you can guess what presents I got Continue reading →
