    In 2015 I set myself some very definite goals for the year and achieved exactly ZERO of them.  So in 2016 I decided I wasn’t going to set myself anything specific but just have a general gist of what I wanted to achieve.  Whilst I…

  • January TBR ǀ Books & Reading

    Jess McGlynn January 4, 2017

    It is probably safe to say that I crawled over the reading finishing line in December.  I don’t know whether I had just exhausted my brain (I read 71 books in 2016, beating my Goodreads challenge of 50!) or whether I just chose the wrong…

    Jess McGlynn November 2, 2016

    I think it’s fair to say that I’ve always had a bit of a ‘thing’ about reading.  When you’ve moved house as often as we have it becomes pretty apparent, pretty quickly, which items you have the most of and books definitely falls into that…

  • September Reads ǀ Books

    Jess McGlynn October 5, 2016

    I was pretty impressed with my reading over September.  I had imagined I’d feel a bit slumpy after reading so many great books over the summer but luckily that didn’t turn out to be the case and although I slogged my way through one 850 page book…

    Jess McGlynn September 28, 2016

    Back in February I picked up my first thriller book for a long time; I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh.  It was on a total whim but after the first few pages I was absolutely hooked  and finished it within a day.  I’m fairly…

  • Autumn TBR ǀ Books

    Jess McGlynn September 21, 2016

    I have to admit that as much as I am lamenting the end of summer, I am actually pretty excited about the arrival of autumn as it is pretty much my favourite season.  I love the excuses to wear all my knitted grey jumpers (of…

    It’s no secret that I love reading and at the start of the year I decided to blend a slightly different focus into my Youtube content and began sharing regular book videos.  I was excited to discover that there is a whole community of ‘booktubers’…

  • Favourite Reads So Far 2016 ǀ Books

    Jess McGlynn July 13, 2016

    I realise this post should probably have been done at the exact midpoint of the year but I’ve had so much going on over the last few weeks that I’ve actually only just recently come to appreciate that we are halfway through 2016.  I mean seriously…when…
