Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be doing the Apple Book Tag, which I found on Steph’s blog last month and bookmarked because apples are my favourite fruit, meaning I just had to do this. Onto the post!

Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be sharing a list of 2021 releases I hope to get to this year, as part of Top Ten Tuesday. Onto the post!
Hello everybody! Today, I have another review post for you, which this time features some early 2022 releases I was lucky enough to be sent by the respective publishers. I was also going to include a couple of others that were ones I had bought/won in a giveaway but life has gotten a bit stressful now I’m due back at uni on Monday so sadly I’ve not had time to devour as many as I’d hoped these past few days. Onto the post!
Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be chatting about some films I’ve watched in the last couple of months, just because I fancy sharing some thoughts on them and I like doing film/TV posts even though they’re much more sporadic than book or music ones. These are only films that I’ve not seen/talked about before, as I did also rewatch some of my fave seasonal films. Onto the post!
Hello everybody! Today, I am thrilled to be part of another blog tour, this time for Alison Weatherby’s debut the Secrets Act, with both a guest post from the author and a review from me. Onto the post!
Hello everybody! Today, I’m very excited to be part of Tasha Harrison’s blog tour for Clementine Florentine, with a guest post from the author about why she thinks funny poetry is essential; a sentiment I couldn’t agree with more. Onto the post!
Hello everybody! Today, I have some reviews to share with you, which are all wintry things I’ve read since I finished uni, and I really enjoyed them. They’re mostly adult books as I was reading MG for some other posts at the same time, but there is an MG and a YA as well. Onto the post!
Hello everybody! Today, I’m very excited to be part of the blog tour for Mort the Meek and the Monstrous Quest, with my review. I did an interview with Rachel around the time the first book was released as well, and if you’d like to read that you can do so here. Onto the post!
Hello everybody! So, I decided that it would work better for me to wait a few days into the New Year before writing this and I’m really glad I did, so I think it’ll be a little later than I used to do it every year from now on, around the 5th kind of time.
I have written answers to this tag (originally by Perpetual Page Turner) every year since I’ve had my blog and it takes AGES, but it’s great to have them to look back on, so I hope people enjoy reading them as well. Onto the post!
Hello everybody! I’m aware my posting schedule is a bit haywire at the moment, but it’s just because I’m trying to squeeze in end of year content with other things I’m planning for January. Onto the post!
Number of books I read … overall: 70
Number of books I read… in October: 25
Number of books I read… in November: 20
Number of books I read… in December: 25
Average number of pages read (according to Goodreads at time of writing): 300 pages (this is up from last time, which I wasn’t expecting but it’s a nice surprise!!)
Longest book: I’m almost certain it was a Single Thread of Moonlight! I think it was like 500 pages? I loved it so much.
Shortest book: I’m pretty sure it was Blossom by Laura Dockrill, which is a lovely little novella from Barrington Stoke.
Most-read genre: oddly, as I wasn’t expecting this, I think it might be contemporary! I suppose this is probably because I did an adult/YA review post and one focused solely on MG contemporary as well. As I always say though, I don’t work this out with any scientific method so really it could be anything 😂
Average star rating: 4.2 stars
2 stars: 1
3 stars: 1
4 stars: 54
5 stars: 13
Authors I had read from previously vs authors I hadn’t read from before?
42 vs 27 (I feel like this number may not be quite right but I have recounted so many times and still come up with the same ones, so I feel like it may be because I read about 4 books by the one author this quarter and only counted her once? I’ve also fallen quite a lot in the past few days and I’m not feeling great, so my brain is too fuzzy to keep doing maths past this point. So, basically, please forgive me if it seems off!)
Thank you so much for reading! Do you find these posts interesting? Is there anything you think I should add to them going forward in 2022? I’d love to hear in the comments!
