So it was back to work yesterday into my new role, so sadly there will be slightly less reading being done 😭 however, to cheer myself up I bought loads of new notepads, the pink being my favourite and an inspire now journal for setting my daily goals, so far I‘m loving it, really focuses me on what‘s most important to achieve in a day. #goals #work

n.reads I have difficulties writing in a new notebook, because it's too pretty! 😅 1y

@LapReader guess what showed up! The box was a bit worse for wear, but luckily everything inside has arrived safe! No clue or sign as to where it‘s been, but it‘s eventually made its way here and I love everything! My husband has already stolen the sweets and recipes as he still eats meat 😂 but I LOVE everything! 😍😍 I‘ve wanted this books for ages, I 💖 loose tea and the book mark and soap 😍😱💖 WOW! So grateful for all your effort!

LapReader Finally. Thanks for waiting so patiently xo 1y
Bronte_Chintz @LapReader I prefer the giving, but this was definitely worth the wait, everything is perfect! Can‘t thank you enough! 💖🙌🏻 1y

So finished the final novella in this series. Anyone know when the next ones coming out?? 😂😂😂🙈 Although not much occurs plot wise in this little book, I liked the character development and the plot set ups for the next book.

Last of my holiday trips I visited Chatsworth again with family. Love it there. Picked up a copy of their guidebook for a read through and also a copy of the illustrated Pride and Prejudice which I love. Also @Mitch as this is close-ish to where I live I picked up a postcard to send to you for the #JB map. I‘m unpacked and shall be able to start my replies to people!

Mitch That‘s cool. Big thanks 😀 1y

I wasn‘t sure for a while into this book whether I‘d like it or not, it took a while for me to get into it, but it gradually drew me in and by the end I was hooked. The ending in particular was very poignant. I highly rate the audiobook for this as I thought the narrator did an amazing job!

Quick, fun read! Humorous with a strong female lead and an entertaining romantic interest. The book is not going to fill a deep need for superb writing and original storylines, but it is an enjoyable read nonetheless and I‘ll definitely be reading the next one!

Mehso-so

Okay, so this one is a hard one to review. I wanted so much to love this book and it has all the features that usually make up a favourite. It has an interesting and original premise, a bit of mystery, a romance, and yet I just couldn‘t quite click with it. I can‘t claim bad writing or any of the obvious flaws you‘d expect. I think I just found it difficult to connect with any of the characters on an emotional level, especially the MC.

tjwill Sorry you didn‘t like it. I‘m reading it now and enjoying traversing through history with Tom. 1y
Bronte_Chintz @tjwill The rewriting was good and I feel like I should have enjoyed it more, but I just couldn‘t relate to Tom much I‘m afraid. 1y

I am doing well on the reads at the minute, all brilliant picks and I have Litsy to thank for that. The description on the front of the book is correct, Gaiman really does become the fireside bard! The stories are short, funny and engaging and it‘s great to see these familiar heroes in this new context. This was a really quick read that didn‘t feel taxing due to all the breaks between stories. I highly recommend this book if you like mythology.

Thought I‘d knock this one out as a quick read today. It‘s definitely one I would re-read with a cup of tea of a quiet afternoon. The poetry is short, succinct but heartfelt. They are often very specifically related to the authors experiences, which can sideline you from relating directly to it, but the issue raised are common enough that if we haven‘t experienced it, someone we know has. 4/5 overall. Thanks @TrishB for the chance to read this! 💖

I just got your package @miralunasbooknook thank you so much. It‘s brilliant. In addition to having wanted to read his books for a while, the flower fairy card is perfect as they were my introduction to poetry when I was little, I love it! Thank you so much! #jbuk

Wow @CBee I just got a lovely email with your very generous Amazon voucher. I have already been scanning what to buy. I‘m so very grateful. I don‘t know how to express it more than that. I‘m so touched by all the thoughtful gifts I may have actually shed a little tear. #soft

I want to take a minute today to express how grateful I am to my Litsy friends, both #jb and #jbuk for the wonderful and thoughtful gifts and cards. I consider myself very lucky to have met (online) all of you. I don‘t think any of you will understand just what this has meant to me. To everyone else on Litsy who has wished me a happy birthday, or has just had great conversation with me on Litsy. Thank you.

Theshadedbuffalo I‘m so glad it made it to you!! Happy birthday!! 1y
Bronte_Chintz @Theshadedbuffalo Honestly can‘t thank you enough! 💖 1y
