    Hello!

    Now then, it’s time for the FINAL What I Read in 2017 instalment.  You’ve had the autobiographies and non-fiction books, the general fiction, poetry and thriller books, the children’s fiction books and the women’s fiction books.  I do hope you have enjoyed reading these posts… *sweats nervously*.  It’s time for the Young Adult Fiction books I read in 2017.

    Get t’kettle on, this is a long blog post!

    What I Read in 2017 | Children’s Fiction

    Hello!

    Further to the first What I Read in 2017 and second What I Read in 2017 blog posts, I am now bringing you the third blog post.  At the risk of repeating myself,  I read 114 books in 2017 and trying to fit them all in one blog post would have broken my blog.

    Without further ado, for the third What I Read in 2017 series, let’s talk about the children’s fiction books I read in 2017.

    What I Read in 2017 | General Fiction, Poetry & Thriller

    Posted in blog by

    Hello!

    Further to my first What I Read in 2017 blog post, I am now bringing you the second.   In case you have somehow stumbled on to this blog by accident (welcome!), I read 114 books in 2017, and I couldn’t fit my thoughts about them into one blog post.  It seemed to be the most logical solution to split them by genre, so I can actually discuss what the books I liked and those I didn’t.

    Without further ado, for the second What I Read in 2017 series, let’s talk about the general fiction, poetry and thriller books I read in 2017.

    What I Read in 2017 | Autobiographies & Non Fiction

    Posted in blog by

    Goodbye 2017, and hello 2018!

    I’m not sure how I managed to do it, but I read 114 books in 2017.  My original target was 70 books (I think?) so to surpass that by 44 books is quite staggering. *pats self on back*

    My original plan was to write a blog post about the books I read in 2017, but it was far too long for one blog post; it was almost a novel in length.   I thought it would be best to break it down by genre, so that I can actually talk about the books, rather than simply show you the covers.

    Without further ado, for the first What I Read in 2017 series, let’s talk about the autobiographies and non-fiction books I read in 2017.

    Library Love #1

    Posted in features by

    Fun fact: one of the first things I did when I moved is join the local library.

    It’s a place where you can read as many books as you want for free – what’s not to love?   Library Love will be a regular series of my blog talking about my recent reads from the library, and (hopefully) encourage a few of you to use your own local library a bit more often.
