Blogmas Day Six: What’s In Your Stocking?

I love stockings. And I miss stockings! It used to be such a joy, waking up on Christmas morning and finding one gently laid on the end of the bed by ‘Santa’ (aka my lovely dad). For me, I couldn’t open my stocking until my brothers were awake (or maybe I could, but I justContinue reading “Blogmas Day Six: What’s In Your Stocking?”

Blogtober Day Five: A Castle For Christmas

Almost immediately after finishing my Festive Films post, I headed downstairs and put on, not one of the films on my list, but A Castle for Christmas, Netflix’s new Christmas offering. And I loved it. If you’re going to watch this one please remember that, like many films, this isn’t an accurate depiction of theContinue reading “Blogtober Day Five: A Castle For Christmas”

Blogmas Day Four: Festive Films I Want to Watch

I have a confession to make: I have never, ever seen a Hallmark Christmas movie. I know, I know, disgraceful! But maybe it’s because they were never really a thing over here, not like they are in the States, so they weren’t shown on TV? But luckily for me, Netflix seems to have taken overContinue reading “Blogmas Day Four: Festive Films I Want to Watch”

Blogmas Day Three: Childhood Christmas

Today I thought I’d share some memories of Christmas from when I was a kid! Because really, we do tend to lose some of the magic of Christmas as we get older, but these memories are always precious, and this time of year always reminds me of when it felt like hours and hours beforeContinue reading “Blogmas Day Three: Childhood Christmas”

Blogmas Day Two: My 2021 Festive Reads!

I don’t always get the chance to actually read Christmas themed books around Christmas, but this year has been different as I got approved for a few on NetGalley! I’ve been making my way through these, so for Day 2 of Blogmas I thought I’d discuss what I’ve been reading/am planning to read! Currently ReadingHumbugContinue reading “Blogmas Day Two: My 2021 Festive Reads!”

Blogmas Day One: Christmas Songs Tag!

I had so much fun doing my Hamilton Book Tag and when I was contemplating Blogmas and what I could do for it (and hopefully this will be more successful than my Blogtober efforts!) I thought a Christmas Songs Book Tag would be a lot of fun! All I Want for Christmas Is You AContinue reading “Blogmas Day One: Christmas Songs Tag!”

Topic: Books I’d Like to See Adapted – Romance Edition!

I’ve been reading so many great books recently, I thought I’d do a post about the books I’d like to see adapted, whether it’s to TV or film. These are books I think would also work as a TV show or film. And a lot of my recent reads have been Romance, so I figuredContinue reading “Topic: Books I’d Like to See Adapted – Romance Edition!”

That Dreaded TBR #23

Time to take another look at my Goodreads ‘want to read’ shelf, and see if I can chip away at it one book at a time. Last time, I actually didn’t keep any books on my list. Let’s see how we do today, shall we. Part 22 I originally saw this on Becky’s Book BlogContinue reading “That Dreaded TBR #23”

Updates!

Just checking in with a quick couple of updates, friends! Things have been very very busy recently and it’s been hard to keep up, but some exciting stuff has happened, and hopefully that’ll continue into the next year. Short Stories When it comes to writing, I’m definitely going into the end of the year onContinue reading “Updates!”

Book Review: Kingscastle by Sophia Holloway

Publisher: Allison & BusbyFormat: MOBIRelease Date: November 18th, 2021 Rating: 3/5 Stars I received this book from publisher Allison & Busby via NetGalley – views remain my own.
