As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I got into cross-stitch over lockdown and have kept it up ever since. I’ve been really enjoying the total range of things you canContinue reading “🐺 Rule Of Wolves Cross-stitch 🐺”

#WWW Wednesday/ July Wrap Up

This is one of my favourite weekly tags, so many people do it that it’s really fun! In July, every book I read was 5 stars. Maybe I was being too liberal, but it was a brilliant selection. Sadly, I just don’t have time to review them all, but I’d still love to share myContinue reading “#WWW Wednesday/ July Wrap Up”

The Zodiac Sign Book Tag

I’m steadily crawling my way through my blog-tag backlog and I landed on this gem!

You canContinue reading “The Zodiac Sign Book Tag”

🏳️‍🌈 Mini Reviews: ‘Only Mostly Devastated’ and ‘Wilder Girls’ 🏳️‍🌈

Ahhh it’s refreshing to have all the characters act the way you want them to for once! This book was nothing like I’d expected. It’s a queer retelling of Grease (I’m hooked already!) but I hadn’t really thought about how that would play into Ollie and Will’s relationship. The book had a strong message fromContinue reading “🏳️‍🌈 Mini Reviews: ‘Only Mostly Devastated’ and ‘Wilder Girls’ 🏳️‍🌈”
