2019 Reading Goals | Bookending Winter

BKW RGReading Goals for the New Year | Setting out a plan for what you’d like to read in 2019
For my final day hosting Bookending Winter I’ve given us the chance to set out some goals we’d like to achieve next year when reading. I picked this for two reasons; one that I never made any goals for 2018 and two, we’ve all just shared recommendations so maybe you want to pick up something another blogger shared.

If you’ve written your own post for this prompt please feel free to leave a link in the comments so myself and others can see your Fireside Favourites! Alternatively you can tag me on twitter.

For this post I will just be focusing on reading and bookish goals but if you want to add in some blogging goals too feel free. Continue reading “2019 Reading Goals | Bookending Winter”

That Monsters Can Be Defeated | RoAnna Sylver Guest Post

guest postttThat Monsters Can Be Defeated | written by RoAnna Sylver

For the month of October I’m hosting Spooks and Tea where we aim to consume as much horror, or spooky, books as possible. This also fits in nicely with blogoween!

I also wanted to do something a little different and fun this year so I reached out to a few authors to see if any would be interested in taking part whether that be through guest posts or Q&A’s.

RoAnna was super lovely and agreed to write a guest post! I gave her free range on what she’d like to write about; whether it be horror recommendations, talking about favourite spooky creatures or something totally different.

In the end she decided to write about what Good Horror is supposed to be vs when it becomes Bad Horror.

Loving the monsters always ends badly for the human

Blogoween bloodyLoving the monsters always ends badly for the human | #Blogoween
We’re back again, its day two of me hosting Blogoween and today I’m talking about my favourite creatures ever!

VAMPIRES

From what I can remember my love for Vampires started with an amazing movie called The Little Vampire, though it is possible that my love existed prior to this movie, its just this movie is a solid point in my childhood where I made the decision that I would become a vampire…

Whilst I’m older now and the world tells me it is not physically possible to become a bloodsucking immortal, if I had the chance I wouldn’t say no.

Keep reading to find out about some of my favourite Vampires and why its such a long title.

Why these books deserve their own Funko Pops | written by Anthony from Keep Reading Forward.

As you may know I’m away for a long weekend as a birthday treat so I very kindly asked the #NewBloggers group if anyone would like to guest post whilst I was gone.

One of my BooksandTea moderators – Anthony – said he’d love to take part but wasn’t sure on the topic. I can’t think of Anthony without thinking about his love for Funkos so I suggested this topic which he loved.

Keep reading to find out which books he thinks should have Funko Pops!

Dear YALC | A discussion on accessability

So its been a hot minute since I posted my main YALC Wrap Up and Haul post which I made sure to only focus on the negatives and I mentioned within it how there would be a follow up.

It is finally time for said follow up and I hope I didn’t leave it too long. My anger and frustration may not be as strong as it was that weekend, but its still there and I’m definitely not the only one.
