Book Wishlist!

We all know I have a book problem. I went to Manchester for the weekend, read one book and bought one more. I went to Cheltenham for a week, took one book with me (which I didn’t read) and brought 6 books back with me (also none of which I have read yet). I buy…

Stranger Things Review & other Netflix Spookies

Eeeek, I missed 5 days of Blogtober, sorry guys! I thought it was only going to be 2 days whilst I was visiting friends for the weekend, that’ll teach me to be more organised in future! This post is for other people like me that tend to avoid bandwagons when they come along. Whilst I…

#18 – Teen/YA Books for the Spooky Season!

Up until about 6 months ago when I had to convince my manager that I was a serious bookseller who reads serious books, my main literary love was the teen section in bookshops. Sadly, I haven’t read a YA book in the past 6 months, but, figured it’d be a great springboard for Blogtober as…

#14 – SPOOKTOBER Scary Book Review – Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt

So I should probably start this by saying that I am not good at scary films or scary Buzzfeed articles or scary anything, in all honesty. I am what you might call a big fat wuss. But, I have always been oddly fascinated with these scary things, perhaps like a fear-fascination catch-22. You can often…

BLOGTOBER #8: Lord of Misrule LUSH Shower Cream Review

I can’t wait to get my hands on Lush’s new seasonal products when they’re released in my local Lush store next week, so I thought I’d do a review of a product I’ve still got left over from last year’s Christmas haul. I’m one of those mad ‘lushies’ that stockpiles Lush seasonal products so we…

BLOGTOBER #7: Life Update/Basically A Rant

I pencilled this in as an easy thing to write for Blogtober, but I’ve been sat here staring at an empty screen for a while now! The truth is that I’m currently, mentally, in a rut right now. I do this frequently – every six months I move house or move job or move cities…

BLOGTOBER #6: What I Read Last Month

With absolutely no preamble, here are the books I read last month and what I thought of them: I Am I Am I Am – Maggie O’Farrell This was incredible and by far the best book I’ve read recently. I’ve never read any of O’Farrell’s literature before, so I was stepping into blind territory with…

Blogtober #4 : Astrology – Am I A Proper Taurus?!

Astrology. The mystical and fantastical belief that stars can control our destinies. I must admit, it’s not something I’ve ever paid any attention to, other than occasionally reading my horoscope in magazines. But, one of my blogger gals, Shauna (link to YouTube channel here) is a strong believer in astrology, and because I think Shauna…

BLOGTOBER #1 – Lush Twilight Body Spray Review

You’ll have to forgive me, but a lot of my Blogtober posts are likely to be Lush reviews, as I need to push myself to write more of them, plus they’re nice and short to write and upload! I’ll still be writing my usual content, as well as trying to push my blog slowly into…
