I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start! This week I’m deviating from the set path and choosing an old topic. This week’s actual topic was about food/drinks you eat when reading but I don’t eat or drink when I read!
I do confess that this was a hard topic for me to actually answer. Because almost all of my spare money goes to, and has always gone to, buying books. I have a lot of books. I will never be one of those humble readers who actually uses a library or an eReader. And so, I have two bookshelves and hundreds of books . . . so what books could I possibly want?
So, I’m doing the wrong prompt for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday but THAT’S OKAY. I didn’t fancy doing the actual prompt so I’m doing the one from last week because YAY RAIN! Going into winter in Australia, my mind is turning towards all the epic fantasies, cosy contemporaries and chunky monkies of books that I want to tuck into. This is the perfect opportunity to share with you my personal recommendations for rainy day reads!

And then this year . . . last year . . . mmm, not so much. I’m blaming the slump.

Hello one and all! I hope you’re having a fantastic week. I myself am motivated to catch up to my Goodreads reading goal – I was doing so well in January but have found myself falling two books behind this months *yikes*. So don’t mind me whilst I read a book with one eye and write this post with the other. Continue reading

Somehow, for the second week running, I am bringing you a Top Ten Tuesday. Clearly February is going to be my month. Continue reading
