Fictional Crushes

I’ve posted before about book boyfriends but I thought it might be fun to list some of my other favourite fictional crushes, from television shows and movies. I’ve never really crushed on real-life people all that much (even when I was younger). That felt like taking it a step too far. But the characters they play? Well, that’s a whole different story! Fictional Crushes I have fairly eclectic tastes in […]

Favourite Retro Ships

Happy Valentine’s Day guys and gals! Some people go all out for Valentine’s Day though I’ve always been a bit meh on the whole thing. However, I’m a big fan of romance in books so it seems kinda wrong to let this day go past without a post about some of my favourite ships.

I thought that this year I would get an early start on it for once but I’m not quite as early as I would have liked due to business at work, illness et al. Anyway, enough excuses! Onto my answers for the survey which was created and still hosted by Jamie @ The […]

Bookstagram Theme: Yay or Nay?

Bookstagram Theme: Yay or Nay? It’s no secret that I love Bookstagram (I do, I LOVE it!) although I do struggle to balance keeping up with posting regularly and I find it virtually impossible to keep a consistent theme. I’ve read a lot of posts from successful bookstagrammers who say that consistency is key (which I totally agree with) but most of these lovely peeps also advise that having a […]
