Book Haul | January 2023

Hello Hello! How are you today?  I can’t believe how quickly February is going, and I thought it was time for another Book Haul post.  January is my birthday month, and my lovely family got me some great books, and I treated myself to a few as well.  In January, I added a total of 19 books to my physical TBR (There are 21 books on the list because I bought a physical copy of 2 books I’ve already read!)… naughty!! So keep on reading to see what new books I hauled and was gifted last month.  BOOKS I BOUGHT …

Hello Hello! How are you? Today I’m bringing you a little something different.

First Lines Fridays

First Lines Fridays | 3rd of February 2023

Hello Hello! How are you today? It’s the first Friday of February, and since last week I wrote a Down the TBR Hole post, this week it is back to me featuring books based off their first lines. You’re in for a treat with this one, a book I just started, and already am hooked on! “They found Finley this eve, just outside the Blood Forest, dead.” I looked up from my cards and across the crimson-painted surface to the three men sitting at the table. I’d chosen this spot for a reason. I’d… felt nothing from them as I …

Wrap-up | January 2023

Hello Hello! How are you today? It’s the start of another month, which means it’s time to look back on the books I read in January.  I had a really strong start to the month and can’t believe I read as many books as I did… 18 in total! Okay, a lot of those were graphic novels or comics, but they still count!! I also read some really fantastic books, and only one flopped completely, so I’ll take that as a win.  Keep on reading to find out what books I read in January.  FAVOURITE BOOKS OF THE MONTH Daisy …

Book Review | Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren 

Title: Love and Other Words Author: Christina Lauren Published: 10th of April 2018 — Gallery Books Format: Paperback — 420 pages Hello Hello! How are you today?  If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you’ll know that I don’t usually gravitate towards contemporary romance stories, as they don’t always interest me. However, in times of sadness, demotivation and during the dreaded reading slumps I do like the pick the odd one up.  So I’ve been reading more of these kinds of books lately, and I was chuffed when some book blogging buddies decided to start yet …
