Now that it is finally October and it’s actually starting to feel like fall, I wanted to talk about seasonal reading. In particular I'd love to know if anyone else collects books to read at particular times of the year. Before this year I honestly don’t think the season affected my reading habits too much… Continue reading Do You Save Books for Certain Times of the Year? –A Bookish Discussion
Another bookish quirk that I hear people talk about is needing to finish a book regardless of how much they enjoy it. I know a few people who are absolute completionist and must finish a book once they have started, regardless of how much they enjoy it. I once even heard a story about a… Continue reading Do You Stop Reading Books You Don’t Enjoy?—Bookish Discussion
I thought it would be a good time for another bookworm discussion! Do you have a preference between paperback books or hard covers?

This got me thinking about… Continue reading Do You Read Books with The Dust Jacket On?
I have spent far too many nights as an accidental night owl as a result of my reading habits. In my What Type of Reader Are You post many people also seemed to be in this category, so I thought it would be fun to share my mental process when I accidentally stay up far… Continue reading Bookworm Problems: Accidental All-Nighters
I just finished The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood and I wanted to talk about it with you guys. This book is a classic, and incredibly influential so I don’t really feel as though my personal review would add much to the conversation. Instead I thought I’d just write some of my thoughts on my… Continue reading My Thoughts on The Handmaid’s Tale
I am a bit of a creature of habit when it comes to reading. I read pretty much exclusively in my bed. Which I know you’re not really meant to do, as it apparently lessens the associations one has with sleep and their bed, but it’s so comfy. I already have an owl-like sleep pattern,… Continue reading My Favourite Places to Read
Obviously my title is quite dramatic and to be clear I’m being quite tongue in cheek. But, I think this is a struggle that many people who love to read go through. I often find myself trying to budget in more books because I love reading, but to be honest they aren't actual necessity. I… Continue reading Bookworm Confession: The struggle between books and money
My cat Winnie does not understand why I pay attention to things that are not her. She is also a bit of a jerk. So, needless to say she makes reading, blogging and Instagram…interesting.
