What I Read in August

After an insane month of reading in July, it's only fitting I guess that I only read one book in August. Beautiful World, Where Are You - Sally Rooney Overall, I'm still not certain what I think of Sally Rooney's books, I have now read Normal People and this book, and I'm not sure if … Continue reading What I Read in August

What I Read in July

Well I definitely broke my two book a month trend, finally. I read seven books in July, and I didn't really read during my week off. Honestly, this is kind of blowing my mind. I cannot remember the last time as an adult I read this many books. I'm attributing it to two factors, I've … Continue reading What I Read in July

What I Read in May

Once again I am continuing the 2022 trend of reading two books a month, I would really like to get up to at least 4 books a month, but I accumulated a decent amount of hobbies over the pandemic; reading, blogging, needlepointing, that all take time, but now that social stuff is happening again, it's … Continue reading What I Read in May

What I Read in April

I really thought April would be the month I broke my 2 books per month average that I've been running so far this year, when I did read I enjoyed all the books I was reading and was getting through them quickly, but taking the time to sit down and read seemed impossible. Watching TV … Continue reading What I Read in April

What I Read in February

I had big reading plans for February, and then I worked 180 hours over 13 days (aka half the month in February) and basically only worked and slept for the second half of the month. So I didn't really read anything for half the month, which kind of worked against my goals. Although I feel … Continue reading What I Read in February

Best Books of 2021

I think this will be the very last round up post of 2021, it's getting past the appropriate time for them. I have been putting it off because I don't really know how to pick a favourite book or books. I don't have a very objective reviewing system, and I have never been very good … Continue reading Best Books of 2021

Influenced Vol. 1

I thought it would be fun to do a round up of the things that I have been influenced into buying. Originally, I was thinking about doing it as a 2021 round-up, but as I am very much someone who could be described as "very online", being influenced is part of that, although I think … Continue reading Influenced Vol. 1

What I Read in December

So it turns out I wasn't in a reading rut, I was approaching burn out and exhaustion and all I needed was a good break and a few good nights sleep to want to and be able to read again. This is a gorgeous book and will be the start of my coffee table stack. … Continue reading What I Read in December

What I Read in November

I am definitely still in a bit of a reading rut. I read just one book in September, nothing in October (to the point where I had a post planned for early November about being in a reading rut, but then I read a book in a day (a snow day) and I thought I … Continue reading What I Read in November

Gift Guide for Difficult Dads

I don't know about your dad, but I do know that I find all the dad gift guides I always see never having anything my dad would actually want on them. My dad does not barbecue, is not really into whisky/whiskey or any other drink, he's not techie, he is incredibly fussy about his clothes, … Continue reading Gift Guide for Difficult Dads
