ELLE’S READING CHALLENGE – JUNE – NOVEMBER

It’s probably not a coincidence that since starting work as a copywriter, my blogging has become sporadic. Typing all day does make coming home and blogging less appealing, but it’s something that makes me happy, so I’ll find the time. I’ve continued reading and, particularly during a trip to Japan in October, managed to get […]

ELLE’S READING CHALLENGE – MARCH – MAY

Once again, I’ve neglected my blogging duties, but I haven’t been shirking my reading. Starting a new job with an hour commute each way means that I’ve had a lot of time to catch up, and make some headway in the list. From March until the end of May, I’ve been reading some of the […]

ELLE’S READING CHALLENGE – DECEMBER – FEBRUARY

I’m not a fan of Stephen King 2. […]

Whilst I haven’t been blogging, I have been reading quite a bit, so, to keep things brief, here are my three word reviews on the books I’ve completed from May through to the end […]

ELLE’S READING CHALLENGE – MAY PART 1

We’re only 10 days into May, but I’ve stepped up my reading – it’s becoming a bit of a nervous habit! Therefore I thought I’d best record my thoughts on the books I’ve completed so far this month, pigs and death were the main themes! First up Charlotte’s Web: I read this in its entirety […]
