my 2021 reading goals

Reading is one of my favourite things in the world, being transported to new worlds, making new friends, and learning from people who know more than I is wonderful. I also love new years and making goals and challenges for myself. One of my favourite goals is figuring out what I am going to read…

book riot – read harder 2020

the best books i read this month – november 2020

Another month down and if you are anything like me you are well into the Christmas Spirit already. My tree has been up for weeks, the lights have gone up on the house, and I am so happy there is still over a month of Christmas Spirit to go. Dark mornings and evenings are always…

what to use instead of goodreads

August has slipped away (like a bottle of wine) and with the end of the month comes my monthly book post about the best books I read this month. This month brought back for me reading while sitting on transit which is lovely and also I read a few of my old favourite books which…

the best books i read this month – may 2020

And just like that another month at home has passed. Not much has changed in my household, we are both still not working, my garden and plants are helping to keep me mentally sane, and I am still reading a lot. We have been able to start seeing some of our friends in a socially…
