A Glimpse at Les Villages Illuminées

The Equinox has passed, and the weather is returning to its temperamental state of clouds, rain, sunshine, and gusts of bracing winds. Autumn has really made itself at home now that September is turning into October. Where did the time go?

My 2022 In Books

2022 in books. 12 months, 72 books, and countless amount of pages. The challenge I set myself for reading this year was to read 60 books, focus on the books I have on my shelves already, and try and be more involved in new releases. It is safe to say I have managed to achieveContinue reading “My 2022 In Books”

My December 2022 In Books

December has come to an end already, and again another month has flown by! My December 2022 in books has been vast. Not just in terms of amount, but also genre.

In my attempts to read more than historical fiction and romanceContinue reading “My October 2022 In Books”

My September 2022 In Books

My Ambitious TBR pile for September 2022 In Books has been particularly ignored until the last couple of weeks I have to be honest with you. After having a mega book hangover from the last Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, it has been a month of starting books and not getting into them easily. SoContinue reading “My September 2022 In Books”
