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…
After breaking up with her boyfriend in a failed bid for more attention and then going on an Ambien-induced doughnut binge, Lucy agrees she needs to time to work on herself (and her PhD thesis that has been unfinished for years). Heading to Venice Beach to spend a summer in her half-sister’s beach side glass-walled house, she spends her days attending group therapy for love addicts and caring for her sister’s baby; a diabetic dog named Dom. But Lucy’s therapy takes a step back when she becomes involved with a mysterious swimmer she meets out on the rocks on night.
I hope you’re all having a relaxing break over the holidays! I’ve been so busy this month and so I’ve been slacking with my blogging a little, but I’m hoping the restorative vibe of January will help get my butt back into gear and get me blogging again. Anyway, have a wonderful day and enjoy …
It’s almost Christmas! We’re in the fourth week of December so Chapter Four of the Magical Readathon: Winter Edition is now open!
When Richard Mayhew helps a mysterious, bleeding girl he finds on a London pavement, he has no idea that his good deed will change his life forever. He suddenly finds himself invisible to everyone except those from London Below – a community of those that have fallen threw the cracks and live in the shadows of the city, in the sewers and on the roofs.
We’re halfway through December – yikes! – so the third chapter of Magical Readathon: Winter Edition is open. I got two prompts last week and haven’t completed prompt one yet, but as I said in at Part I, I’m going to read at my own pace and I’ll just finish when I finish 🤷 Let’s see what prompts I get this week!
Six For Sunday is a weekly blog series created by Steph @ ALittleButALot. Today’s prompt is Fireside Reads, so I’ve picked six books that I think are perfect for curling up by the fire with – long novels that you can really escape into!
Damian Le Bas spent his childhood around travellers, hearing stories about his Romani heritage from his great-grandmother, spoken in the Roma tongue. In a bid to discover more about his own roots, Le Bas kits out a Ford Transit and heads on the road, touring the stopping places of old and new on a search for answers about his ancestry.
The second Sunday of December has been and gone so that means Chapter 2 of the Magical Readathon: Winter Edition is open! I finished my only read for Chapter 1 on Saturday and I’m ready for my next prompt! I didn’t get to go through the door for Chapter 2 until Monday evening as I went to visit magical Oxford where there was plenty of Harry Potter merchandise in almost every gift shop given that some scenes were filmed there.
Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality, Stacking the Shelves is a regular feature where I share everything I’ve added to my TBR list in the past month. II only added a handful of books to my TBR this month and most of those I talked about in my New Non-Fiction to my TBR post as part of Non-Fiction November, but I’ll wrap up everything here.
