What I Read in March | Reading Roundup

I hope you are all safe and well!

As soon as the lockdown was announced I gave away a pile of my favourite books to my sisters to help keep them occupied and planned on finally working my way through the many eBooks I’ve downloaded and forgotten to actually read. I was all inspired and ready to try and make the best of this horrible situation…and of course dropped my phone in the bath. On the very first night of lockdown. It then took forever for my phone to be fixed and I had given all my books away, so my plan to read lots was a complete failure and this list is embarrassingly short:

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne | Review

I’ve had a string of bad luck recently where I’ve bought books that have been hyped up massively online, not liked them, and have ended up stuck with a pile of books that I didn’t actually enjoy. I was delighted when I saw The Hating Game was available to order from my local library as I wouldn’t be wasting any money if I didn’t enjoy it. Of course, I ended up loving it and am now annoyed that I have to give it back.

What I Read in January | Reading Roundup

After smashing my 2019 reading challenge, I decided to set this years target a little higher to read 50 books. So far this year has been off to a slow start as there’s been a few books that I’ve started reading but have had to put down because I just can’t get into them. However, there are some new releases coming out this month that I cannot wait for (literally dying with excitement for Chasing Cassandra to be released), that I’m hoping will get me out of my block. I’ll let you know how I get on with these at the end of the month, but for the time being, here’s my January roundup:

Say Yes to the Marquess by Tessa Dare | Review

Image result for say yes to the marquessSo this book automatically gets points from me for the name – don’t you think historical romance novels always have the funniest titles?!

If you read my last two posts, you’ll know I love Tessa Dare’s books. I’ve wanted to read this one for ages now, partly because of the title, but mainly because I loved the first Castles Ever After book so much. I think this was a case of hyping something up too much in my head, as although I did enjoy it, it didn’t live up to my expectations.

Books I’ve Read This Year – Part 1 | Goodreads Reading Challenge

I’ve been wanting to do this post for a while now, as I am actually very proud of my progress with my reading challenge this year so far. Although I am a very fast reader, I do tend to go through periods of total reading blocks. I did have a bad habit of setting my reading challenge goal ridiculously high, and pretty much setting myself up for failure. This year I decided to be sensible and set my target at a modest 35 books. I am very proud to say that I am currently at a total of…. 40 books! I feel like I really fell back in love with reading this year, mainly thanks to the discovery of some amazing authors.

I have listed the books I have read so far this year, and my ratings of them, which I will share over two posts. Here are the first 20.

Hopefully this will give you some inspo for what to read next! Enjoy…

I’m Back!

Hi everyone! Long time, no speak.

I’m sorry for the complete silence for the past … agh 2 years! How has it been that long?! I’m honestly annoyed at myself for being such a terrible blogger. There have been so many times where I have wanted to get back into reviewing and posting regularly, but for some reason or another I’ve always stopped myself. I decided that today would be the day that I finally bit the bullet and started again.

My reading tastes have changed in the last few years, so the books I will be posting about will differ from before. Whilst I used to be primarily a YA reader, unfortunately I don’t read as much of it anymore. I started to find the YA books I was reading to be too similar and grew tired of the familiar story lines. Don’t get me wrong, I do still love a good YA read, but it just isn’t my favourite genre anymore.

The honour of my being my favourite genre goes to historical romance. It’s funny, I remember I had just started reading historical romance the last time I was blogging, and I always acted like it was a guilty pleasure for me. There is no guilt what so ever anymore – so be prepared for lots of historical romance posts!

I have noticed since logging on again that a lot of the bloggers I used to read have also stopped posting, which is a shame, but I am excited to discover new blogs! If you have any suggestions for good blogs to follow, please let me know!

Although this has just been a quick update post/ramble, I do feel very excited and motivated to properly get started.

Speak soon!
