Kathryn TroyGuest Post | Kathryn Troy
Curse of the Amber by Kathryn Troy ccame out yesterday! I was offered the chance to read and review it but I’m so behind with my current stack I had to do the smart thing and say no even though I’m really interested in the synopsis. (Full book and author information within the post)

But I also don’t know how to say no completely, so instead I have a wonderful guest post for you from Kathryn herself.

Keep reading to find out why bad books made Kathryn a better writer! Continue reading “How Bad Books Make Me a Better Writer | Guest Post from author Kathryn Troy”

My TBR and I are a mess

Reading GoalsMy TBR and I are a mess | Reading Goals

Yesterday (or at least the time I’m writing this) I got to spend the day with Imi from Imi Reviews Books. It was a lovely day but I also instilled some fright into the poor girl.

She got to look at my bookshelves, all of them, (not just the ones I post for Browsing Bloggers Bookshelves) and talk about the books. As two book lovers do.

Unfortunately, this also meant I got to experience first hand the looks of disapproval when she realised what I still needed to read, what I still had bookmarks in, and just y’know in general that I am A Mess™.

I finished my Goodreads Goal in February…

In 2018 I set my goal for 30 books, this is the first time I’ve set it low on purpose. I knew from previous years reading I would read more than this and in the back of my head I had my own alternate goal. However throughout my years blogging I’ve seen much discourse on Goodreads goal being a cause of stress and reading slumps should we ever get behind.

Setting it to something I knew I could achieve took all that away, but I still kept it to 30 as in 2016 I read 37 books so I’m very aware how my own mood and life can affect my reading in multiple ways.

I set it to 30 again this year and well… as the title suggests, I completed this is in February. Keep reading to find out what I read and my thoughts on the books.
