Book Review: Moscow Rules

I have to say, I’m still finding it so weird that I can write out my thoughts about each book I read. Usually, I just try and tell someone, who’s probably nowhere near as interested as I am, but now I get to tell you! And I love that! Okay, enough rambling! Confessions time: I actually...

Into The Shallows {A Short Story} – Part One

Hi friends. So lately, I’ve been feeling like I’ve lost my writing mojo, like all my creativity has left my body – or at the very least, my brain. And it frustrates me. Yes, I write for a living, but that’s for clients so there’s no real creativity to it. Not the kind...

Summer Reading List

Summer has well and truly set in here in the land down under. I’ve spent hours lying on the beach, by the pool and on the balcony, freckles turning my skin into a tanned dot-to-dot, and there’s still six weeks to go! After being curled up by a roaring fire, there’s nothing...

Book Review: Honour Amongst Thieves

If you’ve already read my Top Books of 2017, you’ll already know that I loved this book, but I thought it definitely deserved it’s own review, so here it is! The Blurb:┬áSpring 1994, Washington, D.C. – While the Clinton Administration grapples with its domestic policies, a...

Top Books of 2017

I’m not going to lie to you, I absolutely, 100% had to scroll back through my camera roll and Goodreads to remember all the books I read in 2017. Which is really bad when you consider I, apparently, only read 49 books in 2017. I swear it was more, but that’s all I could find. I was...

Recipe: Warm Salmon Salad

I know, usually I’m a baker, but this recipe was so darn good, I just had to share it with you! Whatever the weather’s doing where you are, it’s the perfect post-Christmas detox meal – though I’m not going to lie, it’s going to be on high-rotation around here for...

Oxford: My Favourite Bookshops

If you know me, you’ll know my love of Oxford knows no bounds. It’s home. Well, it isn’t, not really. It’s not where I spent my childhood or went to school (that’s a much longer story), but it is where I grew up, where I discovered who I am and what I love, and where I...

The BBC Big Read

If you’ve already read my Welcome to The Bookery post, you’ll know that I have decided to read all the books on the BBC’s Big Read Top 100 list. In fact, I find it more than a little ridiculous, considering that I call myself a bookworm, that I haven’t read all the books on...

Welcome to The Bookery

If you’ve frequented this little space for a while, it’ll come as no surprise to learn that 2017 was a rough year for me. But, with the start of a new year, comes fresh perspective.┬áThere are weeks, even months, in the last year, where I haven’t written any posts. Not because I...

My Word Of The Year: 2018

Happy New Year’s Eve loves! I can’t believe 2017 has come to an end already, but actually, I’m really glad it is. Back in January, I set my goals for this year – and I’m not going to lie, I’ve failed at pretty much all of them. These were my goals for 2017:...

The Weekly Edit #3

I know, I know. It’s literally been months since I did one of these. But it’s back – and I’m not going to lie, it feels good! This week has been full of bubbles, doctors visits, snow, weird art and getting Christmassy! Let’s dive in shall we? ...

Top 10 Winter Books

Would you believe I’ve never actually done a proper round-up of books to read in winter? And I call myself a bookworm! Shockingly poor form there! My apologies! Let me rectify that right now! Sure, there are shows to be binge watched on Netflix, but there are also so many books that you would...
