Blog Scheduling: Yay or Nay?


When I started blogging, I didn’t really know anyone or anything about it. I just wrote my reviews and posted them – whatever the day or time, it didn’t really matter, I was just determined to get more reviews up on my blog. As I got into the swing of things, I started to be a bit more organised and kept my posts to Monday’s (this was at a time where I had very little to write about – so one post a week was more than enough!)

I hope all your Februaries have been wonderful and had a lovely Valentines Day (if you celebrate it) and of course pancake day! Here’s what’s been going on in my booky world this month.

The TMI Travel Tag!

travelI pinched this off of Katy’s blog, The Lilac Scrapbook (which is awesome by the way, go check it out!) and although I wasn’t tagged I loved the idea of a travel survey to talk about where you’ve been, where you’d like to go and share some photos! I won’t tag anyone at the end as I wasn’t tagged myself but if you’d like to do it then go ahead! (Be sure to credit it to Wanderness as she made the tag up!) Continue reading

The Only Time Plagiarism Has Ever Been Funny

At the end of January, I posted my January Book Haul and in that post, I included this photo:


This is a photo of some of my favourite John Green quotes which I decided to print and frame and stick on my wall along with my brand spanking new bookshelf. A lot of people said to me that they liked this idea and thought the framed quotes ideas was a good one and I agree – I was over the moon at how they turned out and they are displayed proudly on my wall.

My Favourite Things About Blogging!


Hello lovely readers! For the last two months, I’ve been really enthusiastic about blogging and my blog again – which is great considering the 6 month break I went on last year where I essentially abandoned my blog and Twitter account. So I’ve decided to do a series of posts about blogging from all different angles, the first one being my personal favourite things about blogging. Some of these may be similar to yours – others totally different – but that’s the great thing that we all have different experiences! Continue reading

Blurb: One step can change everything…

Cass Brooks loves her job, her boyfriend Sean, her life. Until, leaving home one morning, distracted and hungover, she steps into the path of a truck.

When she wakes up, she can’t walk. And suddenly all her hopes and dreams, the plans she’d made with Sean, the future she thought she’d have, seem out of her reach.

But then fate intervenes again. Cass meets Ticket, a loyal golden Labrador who refuses to leave her side. And on a flight to Colorado, she sits next to Charlie, who believes he can show her a life full of possibilities, if only she’ll let him.

Cass wants her life back the way it was. Charlie knows this cannot be. Yet a future beckons all the same… Continue reading

Recipe: Prawn & Tomato Tagliatelle Pasta


A few weeks ago, I posted my first ever food post – a recipe for a delicious curry we made at home from scratch (you can find that post here). It was a really enjoyable post to make and write (and eat!) and I got a lot of lovely feedback on it so I’ve decided to do another recipe post for the next meal we made – a gorgeous prawn and tomato Tagliatelle pasta which was so easy to do!
