Wishlist Wednesday [#43]

Welcome back to Wednesday! Guess what I started reading this morning? It Ends With Us! A friend lent it to me so I’m taking a quick jump into it before continuing on reading what I received at Christmas. So far so good, but I’m just anticipating Hoover murdering me with feels (does she even write any other way?).

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted @ Pen to Paper where we get to feature a book that’s been on our wishlist for a long time that we want to buy/read! I have a hugely extensive list that I keep updated over on The Book Depository so I’m never short of books that I’m wishing on. Continue reading

Wishlist Wednesday [#37]

It would seem that I’m rocking disorganisation this week. This post is very late but my only excuse is that I rather like sitting and doing nothing or sleeping. So apologies, friends, but a lady must nap. I also did some yoga today (do you do yoga?) I was practically a stealthy ninja, you should’ve seem me go – it was like on Sims, when they do it long enough, and suddenly you’re levitating in the air. Totally was how I looked.

Waiting on Wednesday [#23]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the SpineIt’s a tremendously fun thing to be because you have an excuse to gallivant through the 2016 releases (and probably buy far too many books). It’s also fantastic fun to head over to the official page and check out the link up to what everyone else is waiting on!

January Wrap Up!

Kapow! January is down! Today I bring you my amazingly awesome wrap up for January that I’m sure you’ve all been hanging onto the edges of your seats to read, yes? Good. You know for once, I’m not finding myself saying “I can’t believe January is already over!”. Nope. For me January passed in a normal and timely fashion much to David Tennant’s disappointment (and if you don’t get that reference then I am so, so sorry).

January was a pretty decent reading month for me, in total I read 9 books! I participated in two read-a-thons and started tallying up the numbers towards my Rock Your TBR challenge:

Am I pleased? Yes. I am. After receiving quite a lot of books for Christmas I was absolutely determined to get through all of those before I went on to reading the others books of mine that sit looking so tempting on my bookshelf and I STUCK TO MY GOAL. That’s a first. I’ve read a lot of great books this month and that’s always terribly exciting. I’m well on my way to surpassing hitting my goal of 60 books for the year, as well.

Let’s get on to the books! Continue reading
