Blogger book nook #5: Judging a book by its cover

Hi everyone! So if you are a regular reader, you will know that I take part in the Blogger book nook run by Abbey and Tabitha every month. If you are new to this, it is a book group where Abbey and Tabitha set a prompt for each month with questions relating to it in order to motivate us to read a book relating to the prompt and review it. This month’s prompt was an interesting one as it goes against every instinct I have as a reader…to judge a book by it’s cover. For this prompt, I chose The girl of ink and stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave because it has such a beautiful cover and struck me as something I would read.

I’m opening an etsy shop!

Hi everyone! So today’s post was going to be another ‘this is what I’ve learnt’ kind of post but not only did I not want to write another of those posts, I have something new and exciting to share. If you read my last post, you will know I am winging it for a while. Part of what I want to do as a result of this decision is to work for myself. I had admitted that I didn’t know exactly what this would entail and that I knew there would be some challenges. However, last week I had a brainwave. I have decided to open my own etsy shop!

Introducing…The Disney Series!

Hi everyone! If you have been following my blog for a while, you will know I love everything Disney. I recently starting sharing Disney themed content on my blog, although it has been slightly sparse. With this in mind, I really wanted to make Disney content a major part of my blog this year. I have had this in the pipeline for a while but I just didn’t have the motivation to get it off the ground but I thought as one of my blogging goals is to diversify my content, I thought now would be a better chance than ever. I love Disney YouTubers and whenever they share their Disney trips they call them ‘series’ so I thought as I don’t have a YouTube channel I could do a Disney series on my blog instead!

Why I am winging it for a while

Hi everyone! So firstly apologies for the long winded title (I never was good at them) but I feel like it sums up this post perfectly. I have been unemployed for two months now and it has been a struggle. For me, though, it’s not even the lack of money that worries me, it is the pressure of finding a job. The hardest thing about finding a job is finding the right one for me, particularly after my experience with my last job. I get that not everybody ends up in a job they love or is perfect for them but my last job was more than just disliking it. I am actually scared that I will end up in another job that causes me anxiety.

Go set a watchman by Harper Lee

“Maycomb, Alabama. Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch–“Scout”–returns home from New York City to visit her aging father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise’s homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town and the people dearest to her. Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt.”

My 2018 goals

Hi everyone! I can’t believe we are already in another year! It has become a bit of a tradition for me to write a blog post on my goals for the upcoming year so I naturally had to write one for this year. I admit that I am not that great at actually tracking my goals but I do like to set myself some regardless. I thought that this year I would break them up into personal and blogging goals as there is quite a lot I want to achieve and thought they would be easier to achieve if I categorised them.
