Happy Pride Month! I thought I’d kick it off with some books with A-spec characters in order to show my own Ace pride 😊 I have decided to pick my top 5 of books I have read with Ace characters. However I am aware this is just my opinion so if you viewed these books…… Continue reading Pride Post: Ace Rep
Just a bit of a ramble post about self-care during lock down from me today. I work in children’s mental health, and have been working from home during lock down.

This time last year I was discovering the bookstagram community and attempting to take some badly lit photos of my own. Now…… Continue reading My Year of Reading 2016
