How is the first month of 2019 over so quickly? Wasn’t it news years just yesterday?! Maybe that’s just me though… Anyway, on with the wrap up!
Books I Read
📚 A Gathering of Shadows – what a cracking start to the year with a VE Schwab.
📚 Legendary – because when I unwrapped it at Christmas we all knew it wasn’t going to stay unread very long.
📚 Northanger Abbey – just finished this a few days before the month ended and it was brilliant 😍
The Best Posts I Wrote
✍️ 2019 Releases I’m Excited For – the list has probably grown considerably since I wrote it but I still really enjoyed looking at the great year of books ahead!
✍️ Best Books I Read in 2018 – then I had a little look back at the great books just read.
✍️ Legendary Review – all my opinions jotted down for this excellent novel that I was dying to read!
✍️ An Interview with Author Rick Lenz – my first author interview on my blog! Was very exciting to try interviewing someone!
Best Blog Posts I Read
🧦 A Review of the Wicked King – was great to see what this blogger thought of this novel, and so close to its release!
🧦 Saturday Spotlight: Enchantee – I am so excited for this novel and very pleased this blogger chose to feature it, although it has made my need to read it even more pressing!!
🧦 Sunshine Bloggers Award – not only was I very honoured to be tagged but this bloggers answers are great!
🧦 On The Come Up Review – I wish I could have the finesse this blogger shows in this review, and when can I read the book 😍
Things I Did
🍕 New Year’s – pizza, board games and old friends? Oh yes the perfect way to welcome in 2019.
🍕 A 6 mile walk and Pub Lunch – we all walked down the river to the next village over and had a pub lunch, which was amazing. My friend’s from London have taken to calling my house their country residence!
🍕 Top Golf – I went to Top Golf with some mates, where you wack golf balls into rings and get points based on if you hit them. It’s sort of like a Wii game in real life!
🍕 Watched jam lava spill over my boyfriend’s father – my boyfriend’s uncle bakes these amazing cakes and it was his four year old son’s birthday. He asked for a dinosaur volcano cake which meant jam lava sprayed out the top of the chocolate volcano and sadly covered a few party guests.
