This book tag was created by Lauren over at Northern Plunder and Sarah at Book Hooked Nook and will hopefully become a more regular thing on our blog. This time we will be swapping bookshelves with Ash over at ashleighbekkah. The rules are as follows –
We’ll share photographs of our (main) bookshelves with each other so the other person can “browse” them and pick out books they’d recommend, books they suggest to avoid, or books they’d love to read.
If you would like to take part and collab with us, feel free to comment below or message us on Twitter. Continue reading “Browsing Blogger’s Bookshelves | Part I”

I have decided to take part and although I planned on blogging after the readathon, I figured it would make sense to write an introduction post talking about the books so you guys can get involved too! Even if you can’t read all of the books, reading at least one and posting about it on social media with the hashtag #PrideBookClub will really help spread the word and bring these important stories to the forefront. So here’s the eight books that are being featured! Continue reading “Pride Book Club // Penguin Platform 2019”
So I have no shame in admitting that this year I have really struggled with my reading. I’ve been in slump after slump, hence the reason I haven’t done a wrap up until now.
