Easter Weekend Reads


Hi Readers!

Easter Weekend starts tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited. My plans include obsessing over the fact that TS7 is coming, eating lots of chocolate, baking my own hot cross buns (hopefully that works out well) and, of course, reading lots of books.

I actually have four books I would like to read so that’s a book a day and I’m so excited to get to them.

The first I’ll be reading is, fittingly, Spring by Ali Smith. This is the third book in her ‘seasons’ quartet and I’ve seen some great reviews for this one.

I also hoped to get to Every Last Word by Tamara Island Stone but my copy at the library has yet to come in which is a little annoying. Hopefully it comes in on Saturday but if it doesn’t I’ll pick another contemporary.

Next I’d like to read My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows and Brodi Ashton. This book has so many glowing reviews and I love a historical fiction, especially if it’s about the Tudors.

Finally, if I have time, I’d like to start Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. I’ve been meaning to reread this book for a while and it’s been a while since I read a classic.

What are your plans for this weekend? Have a lovely one!

Thanks for reading,

Weekend Reads #12

Hi Readers

 I haven’t done one of these for a while now because for the last couple of months my reading has been so scheduled and planned because of the amount of readathons I’ve done. It’s nice that I can now just read what I want to read without worrying about what challenge it’s going to fulfil.

So, I have based this weekends reading on what I want to be reading right now and I’ve been craving these books for a while now.

First, I want to finish Furious Love by Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger. I admit I picked up this book because it was in Taylor Swifts instastory. But I’m surprised by how much I’m enjoying it. It really reminds me of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. 

If I have time I’d also like to read A Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee. I keep hearing how amazing this book is and I just feel like I need it in my life. 

I’m really looking forward to a chilled weekend of reading, let me know what your plans are!

Thanks for reading,

Spring Bank Holiday Weekend Reads

Hi Readers

I’m so excited about my reading plans for this bank holiday weekend that I wanted to share it with you. The weather is supposed to be glorious so all I’m going to do for three days is read in the sun and eat a lot of ice cream. 


So first I plan on reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. This book sounds like a heartwarming story perfect for book lovers and I couldn’t be more excited to read it!

And then I’m going to read a book I’ve been putting off for so long because I’m so excited about it that I don’t want it to be over too quickly! This is Circe by Madeline Miller. I really loved her first book and this is another Greek myth retelling and it’s been getting amazing reviews. I actually haven’t heard anything bad about it. 

So yes, this weekend is very exciting for me and I’m so excited to (hopefully) discover some new favourite books!

Thanks for reading,
