My 10 Favourite Books of 2018


Kath's Bookshelf

If I throw us all back to the very first day of 2018, I posted my resolutions for the year just as the hangover began to lift and that New Year buzz really start to sink in. I think I did pretty well to keep to my goals but would say I have room to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Three Five Star Predictions


Kath's Bookshelf

As someone who has set themselves a Goodreads challenge (that they’re currently very terrified of), I take my Goodreads ratings very seriously. I don’t take five star ratings lightly. Fellow Goodreads users will understand the seriousness of deciding a book is worthy of that almighty five star rating. Recently I watched a video by Sanne […]

14/52: Whistle in the Dark


Kath's Bookshelf

I have officially finished reading the fourteenth book of the year; Whistle in the Dark by Emma Healey. I picked it up as April’s bookshop buy (since deciding I should buy a book a month from a bookshop so as to support the places I love to hang out in so much) because I saw […]
