Books I’d Like To Read This Summer ♡ Summer TBR

Summer is nearly here and I’m actually dreading it. I really don’t do well in the heat.

One of the things that I am looking forward to though, is sitting in the shade with a book in my hand. Reading outside just feels so much nicer than reading indoors.

I plan on reading a lot this summer so I figured that it would be a fun idea to share some of the books that are on my Summer tbr…

A Tangled Summer by Caroline Kington

‘In the West Country village of Summerstoke, the family at Marsh Farm are too preoccupied with living their lives to notice the farm sliding into ruin. Charlie Tucker, dreaming of victory in a motocross race and flirting with the local barmaid, is unaware of the danger the farm is in; while little sister Alison, busy with her A levels, is determined to dispense with her virginity before the end of the summer and falls for the enigmatic biker, Al. Their brother Stephen is hopelessly in love with the star of the local Am-Dram society, while mother Jenny dreams of escaping to Weston-Super-Mare in the arms of the local vet. Fed up with watching her family squander their birthright, septuagenarian grandmother Elsie – the only Tucker with a lover – issues an ultimatum: either her grandsons find brides by the end of the year, or they lose their share of the farm. And that’s only half the problem… Up on the hill in Summerstoke House, the land-grabbing, unscrupulous, Hugh and Veronica -call-me-Vee Lester watch the demise of Marsh Farm with undisguised pleasure. If they can get the Tuckers turfed off the land, their dreams of owning a bigger stud farm will become a reality; and if they can help hasten the demise of Marsh Farm with a few schemes of their own… And at Summerstoke Manor, in the heart of the village, live the three elderly Miss Merfields and their ancient nanny with nothing better to do than pull strings and watch.’

Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

‘Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of “buccaneers and buried gold”. First published as a book on 14 November 1883 by Cassell & Co., it was originally serialized in the children’s magazine Young Folks between 1881 and 1882 under the title Treasure Island or, the mutiny of the Hispaniola with Stevenson adopting the pseudonym Captain George North. An old sailor, calling himself “the captain” – real name “Billy” Bones – comes to lodge at the Admiral Benbow Inn on the west English coast during the mid-1700s, paying the innkeeper’s son, Jim Hawkins, a few pennies to keep a lookout for a one-legged “seafaring man.’

I love the idea of keeping a dream journal but I’m so lazy. So, I decided to share a couple of my weird dreams here on my blog instead.

Lovely Things To Include More Of In Your Life

There’s often a lot of joy to be found in the smallest and simples parts of everyday. Sometimes it can be hard to see the happy parts of daily living because we are all so busy just trying to get through the day. Life can feel repetitive and rubbish, but if you really think about it, you might be able to find some beauty in parts of your day that you wouldn’t usually think about.

Since finding the beauty in everyday life can be harder for some people, I decided to post a list of a few little ideas to help inspire you..

One Month Of Learning To Crochet

How have I already been learning to crochet for one month?! I feel like only a few days ago I decided to head out to buy some yarn and crochet hooks.

But anyway, it’s been a month and it’s definitely been an interesting and fun month.

I’ve learned quite a bit during my month of crocheting, but I feel like I still didn’t get much made.

Dating Advice I Wish Someone Gave Me

As a single woman who has been through quite a few failed relationships, I feel like there’s quite a lot of things I’ve learned now that I wish someone would have told me when I first started dating.

Back in June, I shared a post with you all where I explained that I was going through a break up. Since then I have been in and out of the dating scene and it just made me realise a few things that I felt like I should share.

My Month In Gaming ♡ October 2020

October turned out to be a month of gaming for me. It wasn’t because I bought loads of new games or because there was a new release, it was simply because I didn’t have anything else to do and found myself playing on my Switch a lot. I’m not mad though.

Since March, I had only really been playing Animal Crossing. I was addicted and it’s what I spent most of my time doing. However, the Animal Crossing burnout has hit and I’m hardly even playing the game now.

Don’t get me wrong, I still love Animal Crossing. But I had to start playing something else. And I definitely did just that.

This month I played quite a few different games so I thought I would write a monthly roundup style post to talk about the games that I’ve played.

I’m Going Through A Break Up

For those of you who have been following my life through this blog, then I have quite an update for you…

Remember: stay home, save lives.

February 2020 Round-Up

February has come to an end. The second month of the century has been completed. I’m very thankful that it didn’t last as long as January did. I thought that January was never going to end.

February is a funny little month. I always feel like February is the month of change. I’m not sure if there’s a reason that I feel that way, I just do.

I figured that since February has ended, I would share some of the things that I’m ‘currently’ doing.
