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…

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.

I Tried Podcasts For the First Time!

I love books. I love music. I love listening to both audiobooks and music. I love listening to people talk. And yet, I’ve never listened to a podcast before this week.   It’s not that they’ve never appealed to me or that I have anything against them at all – I guess I’ve just always…

Cooking On A Budget – Cheap & Easy Macaroni Cheese Recipe

I don’t know whether this is even a thing but I I SWEAR I’m poorer now than when I was a student. Although I suppose being in a minimum wage job with bills the same size as my rent going out every month doesn’t help either. Anyhow, I’m not the kind of person who can…

Porrigan Talks Messiness

I’m one of those strange people who can’t abide dirtiness, but also can’t manage to keep anything tidy. Is this even a thing? Like, if I’ve dropped food, I’ll wash and clean it straight up, but I dump my unopened letters on my dining table for months on end, before wiping them all straight into…
