2022 : The ones that got away

Welcome to my final look back at the year that was 2022. At the start of every year, there seem to be books you were determined to read the year before but somehow never got around to. You were all excited about them, preordered them, they arrived … and then they ended up on the…

Some of my most anticipated books of 2023

New year, new books to get excited about! While all the while ignoring the bajillion that remain on bookshelves or digital readers. Some of you may remember that I did this last year as well. In hindsight, I’m not entirely sure it was such a good idea because the overwhelming feeling ended up being disappointment.…

The year that was … 2022!

First up, wishing you all a fabulous 2023 full of love, health, happiness and peace! Secondly, hi! Hello! Long time no see. I took my annual break during September and then … well, somehow that turned into a hugely extended and unplanned hiatus. The more I told myself it seemed time to come back, the…

And that’s a wrap for … July

Why are the months flying by so fast?! Slow down, Father Time! FFS! So, July. Things at the other half’s job went from worse to much-much worse and he handed in his notice at the start of the month. If all goes well he will be signing a contract with another company this week and…

And that’s a wrap for … May!

And that’s a wrap for … April

Does anyone even understand how it is May already? April was just doing its thing, being all chill. We had some lovely sunshine-y days, did some pottering in the garden (my neighbours keep removing trees so I keep adding them 💁🏼‍♀️), read a little, nothing of much importance. Then the final week, my MIL decided…

And that’s a wrap for … March

According to the calendar it is April and I have no idea how that happened. A few days ago, we were sitting outside in the glorious sunshine with short sleeves. Today, however, as I type this, it’s snowing. WTF. Clearly Mother Nature suffers from hormonal moods as well. And unfortunately, the war in Ukraine rages…

And that’s a wrap for … February

My goodness, for a short month February seems to have lasted an eternity! I considered not doing this wrap-up. Hence why it’s late. Again. Everything just seems so trivial at the moment, with what’s happening in Ukraine. But, like me, maybe you too are increasingly turning to books to escape reality. Even if it’s just…
