All About Jane Austen! | Classics Series

Since I started my Classics series on YouTube, the most requested video people have asked me to make is one about Jane Austen. Luckily, she’s one of my favourite authors, so it wasn’t much effort to gather all of my Jane Austen books together and talk about them. Here is the result!   (If you’re viewing through email or the video will not display, click here to watch.)

The White Horse Bookshop, Marlborough | Bookshop Tour + Book Haul

At the weekend, I visited The White Horse Bookshop, an independent bookshop in Malborough, Wiltshire. It was the second time I’ve visited the shop and each time is just as lovely as the other – it’s such a friendly and welcoming shop. I love exploring bookshops because each one is unique and after my time working in one during the summer, I have a greater appreciation for them. There’s nothing better than wandering into a bookshop and getting lost in the bookish atmosphere – the smell of books new and old, the feeling of eyes flicking back and forth between words…

Classics TBR Shortlist

I admit that I’m not a massive reader of ‘the classics’ but sometimes I’m in the mood for reading something a bit more aged and, often, well-known. Sometimes because it makes me seem very sophisticated, but also because I think you can learn a lot from reading them! I like to put together TBR (to be read) shortlists, so I can dip in and out from it whenever I choose without feeling daunted by the sheer amount of books that I haven’t yet read. Here are a few of the classics I need to read soon! To Kill a Mockingbird by…

Sealed with a Kiss Blog Tour: Rachael Lucas on Her Top 5 Romantic …

Today I’m very lucky to have Rachael Lucas, author of Sealed with a Kiss, on the blog. I loved Sealed with a Kiss and my review will  be up later this week, but, in the meantime, here’s a bit about Sealed with a Kiss: Kate is dumped on her best friend’s wedding day by the world’s most boring boyfriend, Ian. She’s mostly cross because he got in first – until she remembers she’s now homeless as well as jobless. Rather than move back home to her ultra-bossy mother, Kate takes a job on the remote Scottish island of Auchenmor as an…
