It’s Stephen Hawking birthday! Woo! Well it was yesterday. Anyways, you’re probably wondering what the fudge this has to do with books, and, honestly, I’m just making this post because Stephen Hawking is one of my favourite people who I would love to meet. Apparently he also has a great sense of humour – you… Continue reading Happy Birthday Stephen Hawking!
While I wasn’t blogging in 2016 (again, sorry!) I was reading. I read 46 books and I have to say I’m pretty bloody proud of that.

Today has been one of those days where nothing seems to go right. This would have been up earlier if it wasn’t for my usual browser crashing (Damn you Safari!) and I’ve also been worrying over my poor puppy who had an operation today. She’s fine, but she isn’t happy. Anyways, for those of you who… Continue reading WWW WEDNESDAY: January 27th, 2016
I GOT BOOKS! WOO! I have read several of these before this haul was posted, but only because a lot of these were delivered/acquired separately, but I haven’t reviewed any of these yet. The books will be in lists organised by where I got them from. Instead of adding the Goodreads synopsis for each book… Continue reading January Book Haul 2016
