Here’s a little list of my favourite reads from the year, that, if you choose to, can also be used as a little Christmas gift guide for your book-loving acquaintances.
So the reading drought continues, I am picking my books up, just not for very long each time. However, I have zoomed through three audiobooks all of which I loved!
I made a new discovery this week, BorrowBox, the audiobook lending service, which I’m hoping will help me get through my INSANELY huge TBR. I also visited the National Theatre for the first time in what feels like forever to see Under Milk Wood. I still haven’t finished any physical books and to be honest went through a bit of a reading slump, but listening to audiobooks has definitely helped.
I didn’t manage to finish any books this week and quite frankly got into a bit of a slump with reading. I don’t know if it was the weather turning dull or that fact that I have a few more plans now, but my reading time definitely fell dramatically.

This week I finished a book and started a new one, whilst enjoying the glorious sunshine, that conveniently disappeared every time I went to the park… I also booked tickets for a show I have wanted to see for ages so am incredibly excited!
Somehow it is already June and, rejoice, the sunshine has finally appeared. I finished a book, started a new one whilst buying and borrowing a lot more! I also saw some wonderful live performances and booked to see another, so all in all, a good week.
Seeing as I’ve been pretty terrible at keeping up to date with monthly wrap ups I thought I’d give myself a challenge to write shorter but more frequent updates in the form of a diary, which will include what I’ve read, what I’ve been to see at the theatre and anything else significant that IContinue reading “Diary #1 – Flying to Guernsey in Search of a Tailor”
I’d seen this book all over Bookstagram and a few of my friends had also read and recommended it to me so it was definitely on my “to buy next” list. I was, therefore, delighted when my boyfriend bought me Natives for Christmas! He knew I wanted to read more about the history of raceContinue reading “Natives by Akala – Book Review”
So what’s it all about and why should you read it if you’ve already watched the documentary?
So for the first time since I started my blog, which was almost a year ago, I actually read all of the books I planned to read in the month! I think this is because I decided what to read before the month started and consciously chose to be realistic about the time I haveContinue reading “First Wrap Up of 2021”
