Time to confess all of my bookish sins…

I saw this tag on Secret Library Book Blog and thought it looked fun especially as I feel like doing some fun tags this year 🙂  It was originally created by  A Page of Jenniely and was supposed to be about being on the Christmas naughty list for book sins.  As ever there are rules which are as follows:

January 2018 Round-up #MPBooks

So the first month of January feels as if it has flown by and I’ve been very busy.  Not only have I managed to post a lot of stuff on my blog and get back to pre-scheduling most posts, but I’ve also been busy in the offline world.  My time with blogging is going to be hampered a little bit though over the next month as I’ll be away for a bit, but I’ll still keep reading (I just can’t help but love reading!) and do my best to not let it look like I’ve disappeared.  To those kind friends who worry, don’t worry, I’m not pushing myself or anything, I have a lot of pre-saved posts all ready to go so you might not even notice I’m gone! lol  In the online world I also have some more exciting news to share but I want to save that until a little later when I’m sure everything’s going well.  So anyway, on to what’s happened in the last month…Read More »

After seeing the daily prompt word was Cavity, I decided to search for the word ‘cavity’ on Pixabay.com. The above picture was part of the search results and the following poem came about from my mind. But I have to warn you it’s not a happy one and may upset some people, though it’s an issue close to my heart so I felt it needed to be voiced. ❤Read More »
