To All The Books I’ve Read Before (…July 2019)

Hi! SO, I said I wanted to do more book blogging so here’s another booky post for y’all. I joined goodreads at the end of last year, after a little (read: a lot) pressure from my also-book-obsessed flatmate and decided to participate in their ‘Reading Challenge’ this year. The idea is that you set yourself…

Long Time No Type – Welcome Back/Magical Readathon/Life Update

So, um…hello again. It’s me, Poppy…I’ve come home…(to the blogging world.) It’s been almost a year since I wrote my last extremely half-hearted blog post (a review of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina back when it first hit netflix) and honestly? I’m scared. I’ve been telling myself for months that I do want to get…

Review: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Like most other people in their mid-twenties, I was brought up watching Sabrina The Teenage Witch. That is, my mother loved it and watched it religiously, and I simply happened to be in the room to watch it with her. Around 6 months ago, I found a DVD of Season 2 of the original Sabrina…

Thanks To…#Coffee

Not least because coming up with new, lengthy content is hard, but also because I’ve always liked the idea of alliterative blog posts for the days of the week, I’ve come up with the concept of a ‘thankful Thursday’ where I just talk briefly about something that I like, and all the ways it makes…

August Favourites

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve written a favourites post, hasn’t it? I debated doing a ‘summer’ favourites instead, but honestly, I didn’t want to tax my brain trying to remember back to May! Also, I’ve been so dirt poor these last six months that I haven’t really been trying out new things….

How I’m Finally Starting To Read For FUN (Again).

When you work in the book industry, it’s really easy to constantly get sucked into the NEW publishing – whether that’s advanced reading copies of books not out yet or the things arriving in deliveries every day – and, eventually, it begins to feel like you’re just eating fast food every day. Instead of reading,…

Old School Twitter-Style Reviews – Reviews in Less Than 140 Characters

I was halfway through writing this post when I remembered that Twitter doubled their character allowance to 280 sometime last year, but there’s something so challenging about creating these super short reviews that I decided to keep the 140 (or less) versions in. Also, not going to lie, it meant a much shorter blog post…

An A-Z Of Good Books

RIGHT. Today is the start of a daily blogging challenge that I’ve set myself, to blog something every single day in September. Since changing my Instagram to being a more book-focussed theme, it’s felt a lot more natural to me to post pictures on my account on a semi-regular basis. However, my blogging has suffered,…
