A new life

Well hello there!

Long time no speak… yes I know! It has been almost a year ago since I last posted but a lot has happened… I have moved from South to North West of England and now I am a mama of a gorgeous boy called Deacon – I got that name from the Guildhunter series by Nalini Singh…


I will be posting regularly again – to start with at least once a week. I have to try to schedule it now around this 3 month old munchkin ^_^

So be prepared – and thank you for sticking around still.



Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten Goals/Resolutions For 2015 — bookish, blogging or otherwise!


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

This week’s topic: Top Ten Goals/Resolutions For 2015 — bookish, blogging or otherwise!

I think most of my resolutions or goals for 2015 will be bookish and have to do with blogging. My blog will be one year old end of February and I must think of a nice way to celebrate this, maybe with a giveaway and I might buy my own domain as a treat! We will see what I come up with.

1. Read more of my actual paperback to read list – I have so many books on my bookshelf in the livingroom ready to be picked up and be read! So my goal is to read more of those and leave my kindle for a little bit. See how that will work out, shall we? haha.

2. Try to keep up with weekly and monthly posts – This is particularly difficult for me, no matter how hard I try! I understand it is for viewers and readers better to know when to expect this weekly or monthly posts I just have to try harder and actually sit for it! I can do this!

3. Read what and when I want – I particularly learned in my first year of book blogging that you can easily can get caught up in accepting reviews and it made a struggle for me to read and review those. When I have to do something it can take the fun out of it. Many times I have picked up a book reluctantly and 9 out of 10 times it turned out a fantastic book, but sometimes it also turned out to be not so good and it really kicked my reading mojo. I know my blog is quite young in the blogging world, but to keep control over it I will accept less reviews and read my own books and write those reviews. The actual intention of starting my blog in the first place. This ties up nicely with my To Read pile on #2.

4. Sort out Goodreads shelves/books – Yeah there are books on there I know I will never read and I need to be more organised with books I’ve read but still need to review. So new shelves and a clean up of my To Read list on Goodreads is in order.
