bookends, karina reads, book blogHappy Friday guys and gals. After an unexpected three day weekend thanks to a humongous stone chipping then cracking my car windscreen… I have had a top reading week. In 4 days I read 6 books, which leads me handily onto what I’m….

This year I’m really enjoying picking up nonfiction. I studied history at university so after reading it non-stop for three years, I went the opposite way and only read fiction for a long time after I graduated. It’s slowly been seeping back into my normal reading life and Continue reading “Bookends | 27.07.18”

Bookends | 20.07.18

I started the year with such good intentions to write a post every week summing up what I’ve read/started reading in that week . I’m quite proud with how long I managed to keep up that madness (16 weeks!) but it became tricky to find the time to write up all my opinions, especially when I’d read more than 3 books that week. So, going forward I’m going to try a new format: voila! Each week I’m going to write about what I’m currently reading, watching, listening to and loving. Hopefully it’ll be a lovely blend of weekly books and favourites – & will most often be completely bookish as that is just how I roll – because if you really want to know every book I’ve read, you can check out my reading list, or be my friend on Goodreads. We’ll see how it goes…

Malice by John GwynneSpring is finally here and the pretty, pretty sunshine and blue skies are making my days far more joyful than the constant grey clouds. Although, with the pretty sunshine, my reading has suffered. I’ve been enjoying walking outside during my lunch breaks and evenings rather than settling in with my books.

That said, I do have a few to chat about. The weekend was gloomy after all…  Continue reading “Bookends | 20.04.18”

Omens by Kelley Armstrong

Hello! Welcome to another of my weekly reading wrap ups. I’m having a really great reading week so far. Work has been mega hectic to I’ve really enjoyed taking time for myself and getting lost in fantastical worlds. Although, I have become a *little* addicted to one series in particular and it’s become rather all-consuming…. Continue reading “Bookends | 13.04.18”

Veil of Spear by Bradley Beaulieu

Hello, hello, hello 🙂 hope this week’s been good to you and if you’ve enjoyed a lovely four day weekend followed by a four day working week comme moi, I hope it’s been wonderful. If you’ve had to work as normal/more than normal, you are a hero.

My reading week has been a mixed bag, I’ve had two fantastic reads and two very disappointing reads – but the fantastic included my first five star read of the year so you know, without further ado… Continue reading “Bookends | 06.04.18”
