The Best of 2021 – Part 1

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.

Diary #4 – Books and Booked

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. Having said that when I did return to my books I was welcomed back with interesting and engaging writing. Oh and I got my first COVID vaccine so I’m pretty happy about that!

Diary #3 – A Delivery from Egypt

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!

Diary #2 – The Show Intends to Go On

A Life on Our Planet by David Attenborough – Book Review

So what’s it all about and why should you read it if you’ve already watched the documentary?

New Year’s Reading Resolutions 2021

So at time of writing I have read 33 books this year, but hoping to make it 34 by the end of the day! Which I think is less than last year, but I didn’t keep count, so I’m not sure. It’s been a strange year for everyone, but I hope you, like I, haveContinue reading “New Year’s Reading Resolutions 2021”

Over in October

I’m trying to get a little better at posting monthly wrap ups, but work has been incredibly hectic recently so here we are two weeks into November, but never mind! On the plus side I have now finished Rebecca, which I started in October so I can add this to my reviews. My Sister, theContinue reading “Over in October”
