A March Book Club


Kath's Bookshelf, Uncategorized

If I thought the first two months of 2019 were good reading months, then March was pretty fab. So I am still blabbing on about reading 52 books this year and while, shock, I’m still behind, I’m feeling okay about it. Especially since I’ve been reading books I’ve adored. So if you want to check […]

Why You Should Buy Books from a Charity Shop


Kath's Bookshelf

As much as I’m the kind of reader who aims to finish a book with it looking as close to bookshop-shelf worthy as possible, I totally get why people like books to look as “loved” as possible. (Although I will NEVER understand why people bend their covers back *shudders*.) I love a dip into a […]

22/52: While I Was Sleeping


Kath's Bookshelf

Before I headed off on holiday just over a week ago, I tortured my heart by reading a Dani Atkins book. My mum had read While I Was Sleeping a couple of weeks before and she wanted to speak about it with someone so badly she bought me my very own copy. I have since […]

21/52: Everything I Never Told You


Kath's Bookshelf

This year I’ve set myself the challenge to read fifty-two books before 2019; a challenge I’m documenting over on my Goodreads account. While I’m by no means confident I’ll get anywhere near fifty-two books before the year’s up, I’m feeling more cocky than I have since early February. I saw this book was only £2 on […]

20/52: This is Going to Hurt


Kath's Bookshelf

I can’t quite believe it but I actually, for the first time throughout my reading challenge, have a back catalogue of book reviews to post. I set myself the, in hindsight, ridiculous challenge (which you can follow over on my Goodreads account) to read fifty-two books this year. While I am far from being ahead, […]

19/52: Difficult Women


Kath's Bookshelf

As if by magic, I have finished reading the nineteenth book of this year, Difficult Women by Roxane Gay. My New Year’s Resolution was to read fifty-two books this year and, in turn, document it over on my Goodreads account. With a new job giving me evenings and weekends alongside a holiday booked for next month, […]

18/52: Leah on the Off Beat


Kath's Bookshelf

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 […]

Three Books NOT to Pack for Your Summer Holiday


Kath's Bookshelf

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 […]
