What have you been reading this week?
Yesterday was my birthday and I spent most of the day celebrating. I’m also going to spend much of today celebrating, which means a complete lack of reading this weekend. I don’t think it’s a massive issue though. I’ll just have to do better this week. I need to start getting to bed earlier, which means less scrolling on Instagram and reading before bed instead. It won’t ever happen but it’s always nice to dream.

- BOOK POST -February 2022 Reading Wrap-Up
As another month ends, it’s time to wrap up the books I read. How did I do in the second month of the year? It felt like it was never going to end but that doesn’t mean that I got a lot done. Check out my post to see what I read in February.
- FILM REVIEW – Death on the Nile (2022)
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting this to be a film that I was going to rave about. I’d not really enjoyed the first one and the trailer was just dreadful. Kenny B shouldn’t be allowed to adapt these novels. It’s not fair to the source material. Why did this film annoy me so much? Check out my review to find out.
- BOOK REVIEW –Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding
Finally getting around to reviewing my last couple of reads for February. This is a book that I’ve thought about reading for years but was always too afraid to. It’s just not my thing. But February is all about love, so why not give it a try? Check out my review to see what I thought of this 90s classic.
- Bridget Jones’ Diary by Helen Fielding
I finished this the other day and I wish I hadn’t read it. There was so much toxic stuff in this book. I know that it was written over 25 years ago but it’s just too much. I got so dejected by reading all of the stuff about calories and weight. It’s just not worth my time.
- Piranesi by Susanna Clarke
I admit that I got a bit less obsessed with it as I got further with it but this was still an absolutely amazing book. I was so captivated by the story.
- The Royal Rabbits of London by Santa Montefiore and Simon Sebag Montefiore
I found this beauty in a charity shop this week and was obsessed with the cover. It’s so cute and sounds so much fun. A secret society of rabbits? Of course I’m going to read this one.
I had a pretty big charity book haul recently as well as a few other hauls. I know that I shouldn’t be doing it but I couldn’t help myself.
- The Royal Rabbits of London by Santa Montefiore and Simon Sebag Montefiore – This book looked so cute and sounds super sweet. There was no way I wasn’t getting it.
- No Shame by Tom Allen – I love Tom Allen and I have the audiobook verison of this. It never hurts to have a physical copy too though.
- And Away by Bob Mortimer – I’ll probably also get the audiobook but why not buy the hardback too? Especially as it’s for charity?
- Elixir by Hilary Duff – Why did nobody tell me that Hilary Duff wrote a book? How could I leave this in the shop?
- Away With The Penguins by Hazel Prior – Okay, this sounds adorable. I really couldn’t resist it.
- Spring by Ali Smith – I still need to read Winter but I thought I’d buy this whilst I could.
- Love Marriage by Monica Ali – Oh my god, the special edition with the sprayed edges? I had to.
- Luster by Raven Leilani – I already have the hardback but I had to buy the paperback. It’s got such a pretty cover.
- Masterchef Australia – Still watching this one. It’s so much fun but also doesn’t require any real attention. Plus, all the food is really pretty.
