We’re already a couple of weeks into January now, and although I’ve finally stopped signing off all my emails with Happy New Year!, I’m still revelling in the New Year spirit. I saw this tag on LauReads and thought it would be a good way to come up with some little 2020 challenges. Maybe I’ll check back in with these resolutions mid-year to see how many I stuck with! As usual, not tagging anyone in particular, but would love to see your resolutions if you decide to do this tag too! Let’s get started.
Danni @ ForBooksSake tagged me to take part in this festive tag! I know I’m a little late with this one, but December really got on top of me – I was reading a fair bit but had no time to blog, so I’ve been catching up with everyone’s posts these past few days! I hope you’ll forgive me for extending the Christmas spirit just a little longer…
Sarah nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award – thanks Sarah! I think Sarah and I have somewhat similar taste in books so I always love reading her reviews. Her Non-Fiction November posts have featured some great books too, so if you’re on the look out for some recommendations, check them out!
I saw this tag on both ReadbyRay and JamiShelves’ blogs and thought it would be a great way to think about what I want to try to achieve, reading-wise, before the end of the year.
I’m actually scheduling this post very far in advance as my blogging calendar is currently full of end-of-month posts and catch up reviews, etc. At the time of writing, it’s a weekend but I’m sick as hell and feeling very sorry for myself. I can barely face leaving my room, let alone my house, but the thought of lying in bed all day is miserable. So, I thought I’d climb out of my pile of blankets and have a rummage around my bookshelves! I found this tag on Nicki’s blog a while back. You don’t need to write about the books, but as I have nothing better to do than lie in my sick bed I thought I’d talk about them a little bit. I’ve linked back to any reviews of books I’ve already read. If you’d like to join in, consider yourself tagged!
Ooh, I love a good bookish-tag! I saw this on Danni’s blog @ ForBooksSake, but the tag originates on Youtube. The original video, by Chami, doesn’t exist anymore but there’s plenty of people who have done the tag in video form! Consider yourself tagged if you think it looks fun.
The lovely Heran @ Be Frisky nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award – thanks Heran! I love reading Heran’s posts and there’s always so much variety, not just bookish content, so definitely check them out if you’re not already following!
This summer has honestly felt so long, and I’m sure I’m the only person thinking that. I’m excited for the weather to get a little chillier and for autumn to properly arrive, but before that happens I thought I’d take a look back over my summer reading with the End of Summer Recap Book Tag! I saw this on Kristen Kraves Books and on Scorpio Book Dreams, so go check out their summer reads too!
I’m back again with another tag that I wasn’t tagged in! In my blogging calendar, today’s post was supposed to be a review of Ann Patchett’s much-acclaimed The Dutch House but… I’m only four chapters in. As a review-preview, it’s fantastic so far, but I’ve just been so unbelievably busy recently that my reading has really suffered. Hopefully I’ll have a review for you next week. Danni @ ForBooksSake posted this tag a while ago and it looked fun, so whilst I’m trying to push through this enforced reading slump, here’s a little look at my Goodreads! Consider yourself tagged if you want to join in.
“The Liebster Award is an award that exists only on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.” — GlobalAussie
