Bookish Loves

This post is part of Six for Sunday, run by Steph from A Little But a Lot.

When it comes to reading, I really know what I like. I’ve been reading for so long, and reading such a diverse amount of themes, that I’ve built up a little list of must haves.

What can I say. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

2018 End of Year Reading Survey

I’ve seen this post doing the rounds a LOT and you know me, I bow easily to peer pressure. So, we’re going in. I’m doing this post in place of January’s Tag Thursday, which takes place every third Thursday of the month. January is all about looking forward to the year to come. I, however, am taking the month to reminisce on 2018 and some of the fantastic books I read then. This is one of the most thorough look backs at the year in reading I think I could ever do.

I used my Goodreads profile¬†and my reading journal to help decide what books fit for each question. For some of them, I’ll be checking against the stats here on my blog.

Tag Thursday: The End of Year Book Tag 2018 Edition

Somehow, this tag escaped me in 2017. I love looking back over my reading year, so I’m a little bummed I missed it last year.

I think those last few days of the year are the perfect time to look back over the year you’ve just had.

You can find this tag pretty easily around the Booksphere, so be sure you take part and add your thoughts too.

Tag Thursday: The Christmas Carol Book Tag

Today’s tag is all about Christmas carols, also known as one of the best parts of Christmas. After all, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear, right? This tag comes straight from She Latitude.

Literary Come Dine With Me

One of my guilty pleasures is without a doubt Come Dine With Me. I watched it every evening when I came home from university, and even though I’ve left the country I still manage to catch a few every now and then (thank you, You Tube.) I’ve decided to combine two of my biggest loves, reading and cooking, and create a little Come Dine With Me atmosphere on my blog. With Christmas coming, too, it’s the ideal time to start thinking about what kind of spread you’ll lay out for the big feast.
