Depression And Reading

Trigger Warnings (mentions, not in detail because they trigger me too): death/dying, suicide I’ve been stressing all week about what to post tonight and here I am, day of, still a bit stuck. So, instead of a typical mindless book blogger post to avoid facing facts, I thought I could just level with you. This…

Library Lovers Book Tag

I’m away at the moment so I thought I’d give myself a bit of an easier post by doing a bit of a tag. I found this tag on Amber over at Book Stacks Amber‘s page, and since I’m sitting in the library writing this, I saw no better tag to give a go! There…

It’s April! Monthly Wrap Up

It’s monthly wrap up time! I had a great reading month in the amount of books I read, some of them were great, some not so great. I started to venture into NetGalley and arcs too, which were new and not really the green pastures I thought they would be. But at least I know…

My Fantasy Bookish Wish-List

Take this one as a bit of an easy out for my bank account. I’m not a reader with a giant bookshelf and tonnes of book memorabilia, I usually get my books from the library and I can’t even think of a bookish novelty item I have. That doesn’t stop me from exploring the internet…

Exploring Ireland’s Largest Independent Bookstore

I am in shock that I hadn’t even heard of Chapters Bookstore on Parnell Street in Dublin despite living here all my life. So once I learned about it I needed to go ASAP. I don’t really go that far North in Dublin City very often or into the city much at all really, so…

10 Irish Books to Read for Saint Patrick’s Day

It goes without saying that Ireland was built on legends and stories as much as it was on rock and earth. My tiny island flourished at the hands of the fearless warriors, wrathful gods, fairies, selkies, and banshees that illuminated the Irish landscape. It’s even said that the mountains of Ireland are not mountains at…

The Six That Should Be Seven: Daisy Jones & The Six Full Review

I kind of get into mindsets with Goodreads where I’ve kind of fallen out of the habit of actually writing reviews for books I read. But this book specifically was always going to be one I wanted to review because of the hype surrounding its release after the phenomenal success of The Seven Husbands of…

My Booktube Games Experience

Right so, Booktube Games. I guess maybe I should start by introducing the readathon as a whole before getting into how it went for me. Booktube Games was a four-week long readathon that spanned for the entire month of February. It consisted of five different teams, named after different places in popular books (Camp Half-Blood,…

Getting to know you…

You know, I feel like now I have a place to talk I have nothing to say. Is there such thing as stage fright when there’s no one in the audience? It’s so weird to broadcast your thoughts and know someone somewhere could read what you’re saying and maybe even agree. I thought I could…
