SHELF LOVE: 5 books in (just over) 48 hours




Keeping myself occupied during this lockdown has been a challenge, at times, with boredom creeping in quickly some days. I've found reading to be an amazing escape from reality and so I've spent a lot of time soaking up the nice weather (one bonus) with my Kindle in hand.

I used to think I could read quickly but I've found recently, with reading more, I've sped up even more. I've found I can read a good book in around 3-4 hours (when a book averages around 300-450 pages). So, with A LOT of time on my hands, I decided to set myself a challenge...

5 books in 48 hours


I know this sounds a lot but without much to do to pass the time at the minute, and being a quick reader, this didn't feel impossible to me.

My 5 favourite healthy breakfasts



Cooking is one of my recent passions and, with trying to eat healthily, it can be a challenge. I find that eating clean can be tedious and without variety, difficult to keep up. I'm a real foodie so I can't eat the same thing over and over - I like trying new recipes and different flavours.

Breakfast is by far one of my favourite meals of the day. A good breakfast can start your day off well and be the first positive action you make. Here are five of my favourite healthy breakfasts (in no particular order)..

SHELF LOVE: February reads



This month, I've found myself reading a lot more and have managed to hit my four books target. I've read a mixture of genres and have mixed reviews about each. I'm finding the more I read, the more critical I am getting about the plots and the writing style, amongst other things.

To see what books I selected this month, keep reading!

SHELF LOVE: January Book Challenge



The last few months of 2019 were fairly busy ones for me and, I have to say, I did neglect reading. I just didn't have the time with assignments, exams and the festive season... However, I have set myself a target this year and will aim to read approximately 52 books this year (1 a week) so I will be posting my book reviews regularly again.

I've compiled a list of books I read between towards the end of last year for January's challenge as I did read some really good books that I wanted to share with you. If you want to see what I've been reading, keep scrolling...
