These past few weeks I’ve had the pleasure of reading Let’s talk about love by Claire Kann. I’d spotted this book not too long back online, I’d read a few reviews and was finding myself pleasantly surprised with what I was reading from fellow bloggers. Truth be told, love stories really aren’t my thing. As a sub plot they’re fine but I’ve never gone down the whole romance route before and had few intentions to do so. However, I’d never before came across a character who was asexual so I was curious to read it and how the author would portray them. Continue reading “Let’s talk about love – book review”
Last year I set myself the challenge to read 20 book in 2018 and sadly it was a challenge I didn’t achieve. Don’t get me wrong, I had a good crack at it, but being a sleepy young adult whose main goal at the end of a day working was to hibernate, really put a damper on eating up those books. There wasn’t any other reason that I didn’t read my 20 book other than I valued sleeping over reading… at least I’m being honest!
However, I did get though my fair share of words and even discovered my new favorite read. Seeing as I’m not in a self-reflection mood with the new year, I’m instead going to be having a good old ramble about my new favorite book, Echoes by Laura Tisdall. So buckle up guys, I’m going all out book nerd on you today!
In April I brought this incredible book called Bloom, I was so excited when it arrived at my house and like all good blogger, I posted about it on social media with the promise of when I was done with it I’d write a review.
The journal is meant to be three months long, what puts this review well over due but there is a reason for that (what I’ll get into later).
The author of this book is a lovely young woman called Caralyn who has a blog called Beauty Beyond Bones. I feel like I don’t have to write much of an introduction about her blog because I have a hunch so many of you will already know about her and are possible already following it.
My own blog here is based on very similar things, I share my faith and how God has helped me overcome anorexia in my own life. So if you’re following me and like what I write, I’d really recommend you check out Caralyn’s blog if you’re not doing so already (I’ll link it at the end of the post).
So what is Bloom?
Bloom is an interactive journal wrote to help those suffering with anorexia. It’s based off scripture, the authors own experiences during her time as an impatient getting treatment for anorexia and her current day reflections as a young woman living a fully free and recovered life.

In August I went to an event called New Wine.
It was an amazing week of God moving and worship.
There was one thing I never touched on in any of my posts about that week, and that was the bookshop!

I’m a bit of a book nerd.
I love to read, there’s something quite magical about losing yourself to a book. So to celebrate the end of a crazy 2017 and my love for books, I’m going to share with you my best reads of 2017.
There’s no particular order, I wanted to originally do my top five books but when it came to chosing them I just could decide out of two of them. So, here are my top 6 books of the year. Continue reading “Favorites of 2017”
