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”

READING LISTS: Mental Health in Books

DSC_0516Mental Health Awareness month was back in May, and in honour of that month I decided to read Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson. Over the past year of blogging, I’ve realised I can be a little less varied than I’d like to be in my reading, and now that I’m reaching the end of my dissertation, I feel like I can finally start to branch out.

I have so many books that I want to read at this point that I have to pick them at random, and then even when they arrive I have them hidden away under the bed for a few months of years before I actually read them. Such is the life of a bibliophile. So here are the new additions to my under the bed book collection: Continue reading “BOOKISH FINDS: Online Spree”
