Rich, handsome, darling of the ton, the Marquis of Alverstoke at 37 sees no reason to put himself out for anyone, that is, until the strong-minded Frederica, who seems more concerned with her family’s welfare than his attention, catches his eye.

Top Ten Red Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme. It used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but now it is being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is ‘top ten books with my favourite colour on the cover or in the title’. I have gone for the colour red! I did enjoy all these books, some more than others, and would probably recommend all of them.

All covers link to Goodreads.

May Book Unhaul

During the month of April, I told myself I was fed up of all these physical books I had on my shelf and not reading any of them. I have completely run out of room and need to unhaul some books, preferably books I have already read. Last month I did an April Book Unhaul where I set myself the goal of three physical books I own and I would have to at least start them by the end of the month, otherwise they would be unhauled.

These posts are based on BooksandLala’s closet unhaul series and since I thought it was a good idea, I decided to do a three month trial of it. Month two is here!

Empty Shelfie – May

Empty Shelfie ⛺️🔥🚶‍😱

This is a month-long readathon where the focus on reading books you already own, hence ’emptying your shelves’. The theme for the month of May is camping and there are a few challenges listed in the video. I have to say, the challenges this month were a lot harder to fulfil than normal, but I’m still looking forward to reading all these books!


  • Read a book with a tent on the cover
  • Read a book with a haunted location/ghost
  • Read a book with a starry night on the cover
  • Read a book where the characters are lost on a trail
  • Read a book that has a bonfire

This TBR is a little late thanks to my very busy April doing nothing much apart from seeing friends, worrying about my elderly grandfather and working (he’s fine now). During the month of May, I’m hoping it’ll be nicer weather and I’ll be able to get to a lot of these books I have on my TBR. There are a few readathons I’ve got planned for this month, Empty Shelfie, Alphabethon and Royalty Readathon being just a few.

O.W.Ls Readathon Wrap Up

This is a readathon that was running for four weeks in April (2nd April to 29th April) where you have to take your O.W.Ls in order to pick which career you’re going into. Apparently, there is going to be a N.E.W.Ts readathon as well, based on the O.W.Ls you take now so I’m really hoping to be able to do it as well.

The Hogwarts letter is here and my TBR is here.
