Book Review: Humbug by Amanda Radley

Publisher: Bold Strokes BooksFormat: DigitalRelease Date: December 8th, 2021 Rating: 5/5 Stars I loved this book, and it’s probably my favourite of my 2021 festive reads. And not just because the main character shares my name! In all fairness, the publisher Bold Stroke Books are putting out some excellent work, and as much as aContinue reading “Book Review: Humbug by Amanda Radley”

Merry Christmas!

Well, it’s Christmas Day. When this gets posted, anyway, as I’m writing it the afternoon before, regretting leaving my wrapping until this morning as I also wanted to bake something and, well, it just took up my whole morning and a chunk of my afternoon. Must try and be more organised next year (as IContinue reading “Merry Christmas!”

Blogmas Day 21: My Favourite Christmas Trope

Over the last year, I have been reading more Romance than I have previously. It was a genre I very much liked when I was younger, but it’s not one I had a proper chance to return to until this year. I’m loving the variety of different Romance books I’ve been reading, and absolutely loveContinue reading “Blogmas Day 21: My Favourite Christmas Trope”

Blogmas Day Nineteen: Christmas Albums

I was thinking yesterday, as I shifted from one type of Christmas song to the next, how the wonderful thing about Christmas music is it can come in all sorts of different genres. There’s a lot of variety out there, so even if someone doesn’t like – or is fed up of – the usualContinue reading “Blogmas Day Nineteen: Christmas Albums”

Blogmas Day Eighteen: End of Year Book Tag

I did this Book Tag originally back in 2019, and thought I’d revisit it this year as part of my Blogmas posts. The tag was from Jenniely, who provided the inspiration for my 2019 Blogmas posts. 1. Are there any books you started this year you need to finish? I’m reading a few different booksContinue reading “Blogmas Day Eighteen: End of Year Book Tag”

Blogmas Day Seventeen: Revisiting 2020

Why in all hell would I want to revisit that awful year??? Well, here’s the thing, back in 2019, I managed to get some Blogmas posts up during December. And as I was pondering what to do for my next post, I decided to look through the old ones and see if there was anyContinue reading “Blogmas Day Seventeen: Revisiting 2020”

Blogmas Day Eleven: The Princess Switch

Yep, I actually managed to watch one of the films from my Festive Films list! Hopefully I’ll get to the others some time soon. For those who, like me, are a bit late to the game with Netflix’s Christmas movies, The Princess Switch is a 2018 film romantic comedy, staring Vanessa Hudgens. It’s a PrinceContinue reading “Blogmas Day Eleven: The Princess Switch”

Blogmas Day Nine: Christmas Songs

There are two Christmas songs I absolutely love, that you won’t really hear on the radio in December, and which are unlikely to appear on many Christmas playlists. Still, I usually find some version of them to stick on, and today I thought I’d highlight these two as part of my Blogmas posts! The 12Continue reading “Blogmas Day Nine: Christmas Songs”

Blogmas Day Eight Festive Films – Old Favourites

A few days ago I talked about the films I want to watch this Christmas, but we all have those comfort films we return to year after year, don’t we? The ones we spend most of the year itching to watch, but knowing it just wouldn’t feel right unless it’s almost Christmas. So today IContinue reading “Blogmas Day Eight Festive Films – Old Favourites”
