Happy Sunday, I am trying to inject myself into my social media platforms and capturing my bookish life as I live it. Making it less stress inducing to have the perfect grid on Instagram and being more real. So I thought on a Sunday I would do a little round up of my week. Granted it will not happen every week but I will try my very best to get it regular.
2019 was not a great reading year for me, I was busier and with family obligations it made it harder to switch off and the I lost a little of the joy of reading. My own fault in a way as I find it hard to say no to review requests and then I feel overwhelmed. So I have taken steps to make reading enjoyable for me again. I have cleared out my bookshelves of books I will never read. I have said no to several books requests this year already and the world has not ended.
Below I am going to let you know what I have read this week, what I blogged about and what I am looking forward to the week ahead.

The Book Blogging Belles had their first event of 2020. We went to Portobello and to an Italian restaurant called St Andrews. Then we popped along to new Portobello book shop for a look.
