Getting Back Into Books

September 20, 2013

When I started this blog I did a lot more book reviews, in fact I did a lot more reading. In recent months my books have been gathering dust and I’ve just been too busy to bury my nose in a good book.


This is partly because as time has gone on my youngest daughter has dropped her nap leaving me far less time to get my everyday bits and bobs done during the day and I’ve been catching up on housework and blogging with every free minute I can find. As my older daughter goes up each year in school the commitments also become greater. My priority will always be towards my job as a mummy, however I do feel it’s time to do a little more reading.

The Vintage Book Group is back up and running after a break over the summer, and I am working on a new reading list. I am also looking for books which are available on Audible so I can listen to books while doing other things.

I am currently reading Nightingale Wood by Stella Gibbons

I’m looking forward to making a little me time and visiting a few book shops too. I’ll also be getting back to doing a weekly It’s Monday What Are You Reading post as it used to be one of my favourite parts of the blog.

Have you read any good vintage themed books recently? I’d love some recommendations. Please share in the comments section.

    Glad to hear you are back in to reading. It is hard to do with little people under foot. Death by Chopsticks, the first in The Cheongsam Fashion Mysteries will be out the end of OCT. So excited! You can read more at http://www.carlycarter.net. Looking forward to hearing what you think. XO

    Great to hear you’re getting back into reading. I love to check your site for inspiration on vintage themed novels to get lost in. Is Nightingale Wood worth a go? x

      I thought it was pretty good. It’s set in the 1930s and its very well written.
