This week I’m sharing my favourite poetry collections.
It’s coming to the end of April, a month in which we’re usually subject to Spring showers. Yet we’ve had uncharacteristically warm weather here in the UK, so not many opportunities for rainy days in bed with a book. For me, a Rainy Day Read is something short that I can devour in a day under the duvet with the miserable weather kept firmly outside, maybe cracking the window an inch to let the noise drift in.
Today’s Top 5 Wednesday is all about collectibles. I don’t collect a lot of ‘merch’ for books so I decided to do my favourite signed editions, and tell you a little bit about how I acquired each one!
As the description of today’s topic points out, March’s proverb is ‘in like a lion, out like a lamb’. Today’s list of books are those which I started with some trepidation but ended up really enjoying. Most of these were assigned during my university years and surprised me with how much I enjoyed them!
Today is the first day of Spring! Spring is probably my favourite season – the weather starts to warm up which makes me want to go out and explore, but you still get plenty of rainy days that are the perfect excuse for getting cosy and having a lazy day with a book!
This week’s Top 5 Wednesday is all about creatures from science fiction and fantasy books. I don’t read a huge amount of this genre so forgive me if I’ve taken a few liberties with this week’s top five!
I’ve had a pretty big TBR pile this year, but these guys have been hanging around for way too long, and despite being determined to read them, I still never got around to picking them up this year.
Some 2019 releases that I’m super excited for!
I always give books as gifts, to almost everyone. What can I say, I’m a very predictable gift giver, but I’m also pretty good at getting it right, and I find that non-fiction is usually a safe bet for people whose reading tastes you don’t know super well. So, here’s some non-fiction book gifts that I would buy (and have bought) for people!
