Favourite first lines
As a reader I appreciate a good opener. As a writer I’m always jealous of those great first lines. How do they do it? Ugh!
March wrap up
I didn’t bother doing one of these for Feb. Mainly because all four books I read were nothing special. I didn’t feel anything for them. I rated them all three stars but I think I was just being generous. This has been 100% better. Here’s a wrap of the month of March and the bestContinue reading “March wrap up”

June wrap up
Below is all the books I read for the month of June.
A wintery weekend spent writing and reading.
It is meant to be a wet weekend so I thought what better way to spend it then to spend Friday night till Sunday reading and doing hour writing sprints throughout.
Dewey wrap up
It’s that time again. Dewey 24 hour readathon is one of my favourite readathon’s. The interactions you have with others online and just reading as much as you can in those hours is surprisingly the most fun. This readathon happens three times a year with a reverse one that also happens in August usually.
March wrap up 📚
It’s been a minute since I posted anything. I ended up being a close contact and had to isolate for 7 days and I kinda just didn’t feel like doing anything. But new month and plenty to do. Like campnano and Dewey readathon so it should be a more productive month.
Down below are the best books I read in Feb.

Day 1- 12 days till Christmas tag
First things first. This tag was created by Lizzie loves books. To start of the 12 days till Christmas blog posts that will be coming your way. I thought this would be the best thing to do. Plus I’ve been feeling pretty unmotivated on every front. Joys of the summer heat kicking in.
