The Book Title Association Game

A little while ago I was tagged by the lovely Jaz from Travels in Fiction to do the Book Title Association Game, which is a fun game in which you ask a bunch of people to provide you with some words, and then you try to come up with existing book titles that have that […]

Recipe: Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Coconut seems to be a bit of divisive flavour: either people hate it, or they love it. Personally, I love coconut, but if you fall in the camp of the despisers, you might not want to try these cookies. If you’re like me, though, and you do love coconut: definitely give these a try! I […]

Recipe: Lemon and Ginger Cake

Spring has arrived! Finally. I can barely recall a year that I’ve been more ready for spring than this year – and I think a lot of people will probably feel the same.

My Favourite Books of All Time

I realised recently that even though I’ve been blogging since 2013 and vlogging since 2019, I don’t think I’ve ever made a post or a video dedicated entirely to my all-time favourite books.

All the Books I read in February – Mini Reviews

In February, I only read three books, which isn’t a lot for me. However, I wasn’t expecting to read a large quantity of books, because my main focus was The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon, which is an epic fantasy novel of quite epic proportions. It took me all month, but I feel […]

What Makes a Good Love Story?

It’s Valentine’s Day! A day that’s all about love and romance, but also kind of about capitalism and consumerism *record scratch* Yep, I’m one of those people; I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day for several reasons. When I was single, it just made me feel crappy and lonely, which is how this day […]

Recipe: Chocolate Chip Nutella Cookie Pie

On Friday, it was World Nutella Day (don’t ask me why I know these things…) so I was inspired to bake something with everyone’s favourite hazelnut spread! It ended up being a cookie pie – something I’d never made before but that’s always seemed like a great idea to try sometime. I was right! When I […]
