The Reading Women Challenge – A YA Novel by a Latinx Author

Looks like we’re nearly done with the first fortnight of the new year – this proves time does fly even when you’re not having fun 😛   My biggest achievement so far has been completing my return to work and unclogging my inbox. Given the mini hiatus that I’ve been on, I am keen to … More

If One Only Remembers to Turn on The Light

Having spent 2020 and the better part of 2021 at break neck speed balancing my day job and my beloved blog, it was time I hit the brakes. Only this time, the hiatus was more imposed than out of choice. What started as a minor bump in the road soon spiralled out of control as … More

June in Review and Hello July

We’re almost in the middle of July, so I am hoping it isn’t too late for a month wrap up! I normally don’t do monthly hauls, it is just never been something I’ve thought of doing as a regular feature on my blog and I feel if I start doing it, I might end up … More

We’re halfway through the year and while I’d have really loved to say that I have completed 50% of the prompts, sadly, I haven’t. However, of the 7 prompts I … More

To Reread a Favourite

I shall begin by declaring that Jane Austen means the world to me. When the world gets a little too heavy, I find myself yearning for the comfortable familiarity of Jane Austen’s books, and the wonderful assortment of characters she’s blessed us with. I won’t delve in too deep, but when I wrote Dear Jane, … More

June ’21 Book of the Month – The Woman in the Purple Skirt

Before I jump into raving about this fantastic piece of fiction, can we take a moment to appreciate the sheer amount of literary talent that comes out of Japan? From Nobel laureates like Kawabata and Oe, to Higashino, Kawamaki and Murakami ( you didn’t think I’d leave him out, did you? 🙂 ), the Japanese … More

May ’21 Book of the Month – Whereabouts

Oh hello! It’s been a while since I have made a blog post, but a mini-hiatus was the need of the hour. With things gradually returning to normal, at least on this side of the world, I’ve been taking some time off to binge-read, binge-watch, and catch up with loved ones without worrying too much … More
