Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they post a different topic that one of their bloggers answers, and they invite others to join in, by posting their answers as a comment of by creating their own blog post.

It’s been a whole month since I joined in with Top Ten Tuesday, but I’m glad to get back into the swing of things with this week’s topic. I’ve read some great books this year, and this is a brilliant opportunity to reflect on them (and maybe get others to read them too!) Continue reading “TOP TEN TUESDAY – 12th December 2017”

THAT’S A WRAP: November 2017

EtheringtonHeaders-That's A Wrap

The festive season is in full swing. There’s a literal blizzard (almost) outside my window and I’ve already consumed a generous supply of minced pies, chocolates and most drinks that are spiced or mulled. Needless to say my November wrap-up is not the most timely. I know. I’m rubbish. Ironically this is my first post in December, but I’m spending the rest of the afternoon writing and scheduling so that my December wrap-up won’t be the winter equivalent of tumbleweed in the desert (…a snowball in the Arctic?). Anyway here it is! Continue reading “THAT’S A WRAP: November 2017”

BOOKISH FINDS:

EtheringtonHeaders-Bookish Finds

DSC_0943I’ve been trying not to buy books and failing miserably recently. I’m only in London for a few months, so accumulating a book fortress is going to make for interesting moving, but it doesn’t count if you get given books. And I was given books. So it doesn’t count.

They’ve all got great covers. Continue reading “BOOKISH FINDS:”

WWW Wednesday- 22nd November 2017

EtheringtonHeaders- WWW Wednesday

WWW is hosted by Taking on a World of Words. Each Wednesday book enthusiasts share their reads by answering three questions:

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

Hello, hello. I’m back again to do another WWW Wednesday post. Hurray. I’m also graduating tomorrow. So I will officially be a Master of Art, which sounds way cooler than it probably is. I feel like I should be able to do some cool magical trick, or be an expert. I’m not, but if I was, I promise I would use my power for good. Like correcting all the signs with errant apostrophes.

So reading! I’ve been doing a lot of manuscript reading because of my internship, so I haven’t always had much time to read for my own pleasure. And then I did the other day and it was another manuscript, which doesn’t really help matters.  Continue reading “WWW Wednesday- 22nd November 2017”

REVIEW: H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald

EtheringtonHeaders-ReviewsDSC_0936Grief is unquantifiable. It can’t be measured or compared. It isn’t one thing or another. It doesn’t affect everybody the same. Grief can bring people together or rip them apart. I’ve been brought closer to someone through loss and had that same person push me away. It happens, it hurts. It’s something we all feel at some point, and yet we don’t really, because grief is personal and raw. There aren’t a set list of symptoms. There’s no fixed timeline or set route through. Continue reading “REVIEW: H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald”

BOOKISH FINDS: Camden

EtheringtonHeaders-Bookish FindsDSC_0932

Camden Town is a great place to visit. It’s vibrant and busy and packed full of interesting cuisines and shops, and vintage clothes. It has everything you could want, including a Waterstones. I’ve been in a few times, just to admire the books. In the fiction section downstairs you can heard the distant rumble of the Tubes racing by, and it’s a quiet refuge from the bustle if you’re not a huge fan of crowds. I went in last week to buy my soon to be brother-in-law David Rodigan’s autobiography for his birthday, because I’m one of those pushy bookworms that tries to sneak literature into most celebrations, and I couldn’t help buying something for myself as well.
