Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR

I’m joining in with Top Ten Tuesday again this week, sharing some of the books I’m planning to read now Spring is here.

When it comes to reading, I’m not the most organised. It’s why I have given up on things like Good Reads and why my many attempts at starting a reading journal have failed. I never know what I’m going to read until I pick the book up – well, for the most part. There are books that I prioritise, either because they are ARCs or they are library books. Beyond that, though, I read as the mood takes me. Which means I don’t have a Spring TBR, just a list of books that I have to read, or think I might fancy….

Cleaning Up The TBR #5

Back in November last year, I did my first “Cleaning Up the TBR” post, something I first saw over on Fictionophile, who had seen it on Lost in a Story, and thought it was a really good idea. I know I’m not the only one who thought the same as I was seeing it everywhere so I am glad to jump on the bandwagon. Hopefully no one will mind 🙂

The idea is you take your Goodreads TBR list, sort by ascending date added, and look at the oldest five to ten items on your list. If you haven’t read them by now, are you likely to? Why or why not? If you want to keep them, make the case. This is my fifth visit to the list so far, with the last one in May. Here’s what’s next on the list…Read More »

Weekly update: 28th January, 2018

Morning all and welcome to the last Sunday in January. It’s hard to believe the month is almost over, but given time goes quicker the older you get and I’m not getting any younger, it’s probably no surprise. Still, for me, it’s been quite a good month – getting my first freelance jobs was a big and brilliant thing. This week, it was also a tiring thing as I took on two jobs afraid to say no. I am sure that will change as I become more confident the work will come and I figure out my limits but it meant this week I had later nights that I have had for a while. Still, it’s better than week-in-week-out 9:5 so I’m not complaining (honest!).

The work did impact the blog a little bit, with posts early in the week but then nothing until Saturday, with my stacking shelves post – which was nice and short because I only picked up two books this week. Read More »
