Literary Girl Summer | Top Five Books on My Summer Reading List 2021

Is it over? The random spate of 30 degree heat that brought the country to a standstill? Oh I hope so. I am not built for the heat; I am built for cosy jumpers and rainy evenings and days where there’s limited under-boob sweat. Still, there is one plus side that comes with a British…

What’s Been Getting Me Through the Pandemic? | Books, Culture, Lifestyle

I don’t want to be that person who says ‘it’s been a tough year for us all’, because we’ve heard it over and over and over. So I’ll just say ‘bloody hell, it’s been shit, hasn’t it?’ For me, there have been pockets of joy (I started my Masters, got engaged, and my blog started…

Books to Get You Feeling ~Autumnal~ | rosie abigail

My cardigan’s on, the asthma’s out to play, and the leaves are dropping off the trees; it must be autumn! It might be the petrichor in the air, or the big comfy jumper speaking, but autumn is my favourite season. As the nights get longer, the air gets colder, and my mugs of hot chocolate…

Long time, no see, book tag! I was tagged by Janet over at The Storyteller to give this one a go. Now, I’m a fussy lass when it comes to tags, once in a blue moon kind of post. However, this one seems really fun! I suggest you give Janet a follow (and Beth over…

Summer Reading List 2020! | rosie abigail

In the words of Obi-Wan Kenobi, hello there. It’s been a hot minute (well, two weeks) since I last posted, and even longer than that since I’ve had a regular posting schedule. In all honesty, I’ve been burnt out. Work has been spilling over to my personal life, and balancing living with an unknown health…

Five Bookish Places I Want to Visit! | Travel

Three months into lockdown and boy oh boy, the wanderlust is still strong. Since COVID has hit, I’ve made a travel journal (despite not being able to travel), a list of stay-cation ideas (despite not being able to travel), and planned my dream holidays for the next five years (despite not being able to travel…
