My Top 7 Short Stories

My Top 7 Short Stories

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week there is a new topic or theme to base your top ten list on. You can find more details about it and see the list of topics here. This week’s prompt is “Top Ten Short Stories or Novellas” and trying to think of my top ten made me realise that I don’t read enough of either. I think I fell out of love with the short story during my uni years when I […]

Theatre Review: Everybody’s Talking About Jamie #JamieLondon

Theatre Review: Everybody’s Talking About Jamie #JamieLondon

    Last week, I was lucky enough to be able to attend a live screening of the west end show Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, streamed directly to my local cinema from the Apollo Theatre in London. A young woman who used to go to our dance school (Courtney Bowman) is performing in it, so a group of us went along to see her. I really loved it and wanted to share my thoughts as I feel this show deserves a lot more attention!   The Story Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is a musical based on the life of Jamie […]

Book Blogger Hop: On Cluttered Blogs

Book Blogger Hop: On Cluttered Blogs

Today I’m taking part in the Book Blogger Hop, a weekly hop hosted by Billy B at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer (originally created by Jennifer at  Crazy-For-Books). You can see the hop schedule here.   “Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.”   This week’s question: Does a cluttered blog have you not […]


My Top Ten OTPs

My Top Ten OTPs

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week there is a new topic or theme to base your top ten list on. You can find more details about it and see the list of topics here. This week’s prompt is “Best Books I’ve Read In 2018”; however, I confess I have only read 10 books so far this year so a top ten would be pointless. Shame on me.     So, I’ve decided to do a Top Ten Tuesday throwback, […]

Monthly Wrap-Up: June 2018

Monthly Wrap-Up: June 2018

This month started with me returning to work after a short break and I really struggled to get back into the swing of things. June is always a busy month at work but for some reason, I felt like I didn’t have my normal patience and calmness. I mentioned the challenges I face with balancing book blogging with my work in this book blogger hop post. I’ve been feeling very tired and run down lately. My toddler was ill a couple of times so she woke a lot in the night. At the beginning of the month, I caught a mystery virus […]
