18/52: Leah on the Off Beat

Kath's Bookshelf, Uncategorized

Today I’ve spent my Saturday exactly as I would have back in the day; after a run, I hid away from the dull day outside with a book. Specifically, Leah on the Off Beat by Becky Albertalli. I’ve challenged myself to read fifty-two books this year (check out my Goodreads account HERE) and have, thus […]

Kath's Bookshelf, Uncategorized

If you’re not already on holiday, you may be heading towards sunshine and beaches (not that we can complain in the UK right now) very soon. There have been three stand out moments where I’ve found myself on holiday or returning from a holiday absolutely regretting my choice in book. While these three books are […]

Uncategorized, Unkategorised

As of today I have been freelance writing for a whole year. Just before this day last year I was a fresh-faced English graduate only able to secure a couple to a few shifts a week from the Saturday job I landed at sixth form. When I received the “you’ve got the job” email, sat […]

17/52: One of us is Lying


Kath's Bookshelf

I finished my seventeenth book of the year earlier this week, alongside my mum. Well, shortly after my mum because I’m not sure she actually ever stops reading. We decided to read One of us is Lying by Karen. M. Mcmanus at the same time which, being that it’s a whodunit, it was quite a […]

16/52: Eve of Man


Kath's Bookshelf

Last week I finished my sixteenth book of the year, Eve of Man by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher. As a New Year’s Resolution, I decided to try and read fifty-two books this year. At eleven books behind schedule, I am definitely the underdog, but feel free to take a look at what I’m reading now […]

The 1670 Cocktail


Kath's Kitchen

A couple of months ago Aaron and I visited the wonderful Edinburgh Gin Distillery¬†and, after trying their new limited edition gin, 1670, we purchased our own bottle. 1670 is a gin birthed from the collaboration of Edinburgh Gin and Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. It’s described as botany meets gin distilling and it’s delicious. You can […]

Five Books You’ve Got to Read this Year


Kath's Bookshelf

Despite being massively behind on my Goodreads challenge, I have read mostly awesome books this year. Although I’m evidently not the best reader in 2018, I’m definitely the best book-picker (and I do say so myself). I’ve been following lots of people’s Goodreads journeys via Instagram, Goodreads and just by catching up with family and […]

How to Stop Feeling You’re Behind


Unkategorised

I wrote about how to be a productive morning person on Wednesday and, shortly after, was looking through The Anna Edit blog and stumbled across THIS post about what to do if you’re feeling behind with work. As usual, Anna spoke to me on a million different bloggy levels. She is my organisation inspiration and […]

How to Be a Productive Morning Person


Unkategorised

I come from a family of morning people. In my house, a sleep in means waking up at seven in the morning and waking up past eight requires a disapproving glare. Admittedly I am not as devout to seven AM as the rest of my family; if I’m honest, however, the rest of them should […]

15/52: Little Fires Everywhere


Kath's Bookshelf

I have finished the fifteenth book of the year, Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. I am still tackling my, upon reflection, stupid idea to read fifty-two books this year. If you’d like to watch me continue to fail (I need to book in three holidays just to catch up), feel free to follow me […]
