I can’t believe it’s the first of December today! I absolutely love Christmas and I’m really looking forward to it this year, and I’ve decided to challenge myself to do Blogmas again this year. I’m pretty sure it’s been a couple of years since I last attempted to do it, so I’m a little apprehensive over how well this is going to go.
I am slightly cheating though because I’m still going to be doing my weekly posts, but just filling in the other days with Christmassy ones! Which is why the one for today is still my weekly catch up!
Girls of Paper and Fire, by Natasha Ngan: I have got to the really good, steamy parts and I am absolutely living for the bonding relationship between the girls. I really can’t wait to see how this first installment finishes.
Kingsbane, by Claire Legrand: I can tell that this one is probably going to take me a while because it is very heavy going. The book itself is so big, not that it’s a bad thing but it just means that I’ve got all my fingers crossed that I’ll have finished it before the end of the year.
I haven’t finished any books since my last wrap up (I have bought more though!) because university is starting to pick up now with my assignments due in before Christmas.
Friday Night Dinner: I’ve already finished this series but I went back and watched some of the classic ones because I find it so funny.
Mindhunter: I binge watched the first season but then stopped because I started to find it a bit dark and I wanted to watch something a bit lighter for a while.
I’ve done really well at keeping up with my weekly posts for Public Relations, but not so good on any of the others! Which is why I am hoping that Blogmas will get me inspired again to get writing all different kinds of posts on my blog.
Some of these books I’ve been bought as a gift, or have been meaning to read for ages and just simply want to get round to this year! These are my top books, that I want to read in 2021. Lightbringer, by Claire Legrand: Technically, a bit of a cheat one because I’m reading it… Read more
Book Review Books: Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess Author: Cassandra ClareYear: 2010, 2011, 2013Pages: 243, 498, 567 I decided to read all three books before I wrote a review of this series, mainly because I didn’t want to stop reading and just wanted to carry on and get to the end.

Just a quick post this week to highlight something that Burger King put on to their social media accounts last week. I thought it was a creative post that added to their social media personality and viewpoint. Going into a second lockdown, this move from Burger King highlights them as being the “good guys” of… Read more

All summer I’ve been waiting to get back to Uni, this year is my final year and I can’t believe it’s come round this quickly, but I also can’t believe how different this year is going to be from the others. Like everyone else going back to University, my teaching has been blended so that… Read more
All in all, things have been rather slow but that is to be expected with the way that university is at the moment. I’ve got some ideas up my sleeve for this month though, so I’m excited to properly throw myself into blogging and getting ready for Christmas!
