100 Books Before You Die: An Update

Another Wednesday dawns, and it’s another one not in work. I’d be sad, but it means I once again have time to read, write, and just generally keep on top of all things blogging. Some of you might remember back to 2016 when I looked at the Amazon list of 100 books to read before you die. Well, four years later I decided it might be time to revisit that list! This post contains affiliate links – read more in my disclaimer.

A Powerful Book Launch – Your Ultimate Guide on How To Have One

And it’s Saturday again! A different one to last week – the furthest we’re going this Saturday is to our rugby club for an afternoon of “Quins on the Green”. But as life has begun to resemble more of normality, one thing has stuck – I’m still slowly and (now not-so) silently working on a first draft of a book I would love to self-publish when it’s finished! But before I could even consider that, I would have to finish writing it. And maybe read Your Ultimate Guide to a Powerful Book Launch[AFF] by The Ray Journey. Please note – this post contains affiliate links; meaning if you make a purchase through one of these links I may receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.

Girlfriend In A Coma Book Review

Hello again you lovely people! It’s Wednesday again – I know, I need to try and keep better track of the days. But when the sun is out, one day rolls into another.  Reading in the sun has to be one of the biggest highlights of being furloughed, so I decided to bring you an unprompted review of Girlfriend In A Coma!

Book Spotlight – The Russian Lieutenant

I feel like I shouldn’t start today’s post with “Happy Wednesday!” – in fact, even sitting down to write this feels a little strange. It’s the middle of the morning. I should be answering work calls, fighting with pinking scissors on fluffy velvets, and invoicing out goods. But with work officially closed for at least the next 3 weeks, what better time to highlight a new book you could all be reading?

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

Happy Monday everyone! Why is it happy? Because I’m off work! Yes, 5 full blissful days of no work, plenty of family time, too much sports on TV, and getting time to read. Rachel had brought back her copy of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie for me to read, so of course I sat and read it in one day. But before we take a look at my thoughts on The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, who fancies a bit of a catch up? Continue reading “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie”
