Sunday Post/Weekly Wrap Up 21/01

Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer which takes place every Sunday. Its a place to look back on the week and share what's been happening with you personally, what's been on your blog, what you have been reading, what books you have received and what is happening on your blog next week.

I am back and ready to start doing Sunday Post and my weekly wrap up. I am looking forward to sharing these and reading others. This week has been a bit slow but I'm sure I'll be able to tell you something.

Leave me comments with your weekly wrap ups as I'd love to read them.

Review: How to Stop Time by Matt Haig

How to Stop Time by Matt Haig
Published by Canongate Books
Released 6th July 2017
336 Pages
Kindle Edition

Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret.

He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries. From Elizabethan England to Jazz Age Paris, from New York to the South Seas, Tom has seen a lot, and now craves an ordinary life. Always changing his identity to stay alive, Tom has the perfect cover - working as a history teacher at a London comprehensive. Here he can teach the kids about wars and witch hunts as if he'd never witnessed them first-hand. He can try and tame the past that is fast catching up with him.

The only thing Tom mustn't do is fall in love.

How to Stop Time is a wild and bittersweet story about losing and finding yourself, about the certainty of change and about the lifetimes it can take to really learn how to live.

Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Resolutions/Goals


Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. I am so excited to be back doing Top Ten Tuesday! I have missed doing it if i'm honest and I am looking forward to the new interesting topics each week.

This week is all about bookish resolutions/goals. I did do a post about this a while back but I might as well do it again for those who are new to Amy's Bookish Life or who didn't see the post. 

What are your bookish goals? Let me know in the comments and link me to your TTT posts, I love seeing them.

2018 Blog Schedule


Hi there. Hope you are all having a wonderful week full of reading of course.

As you know I wrote a post last week about my 2018 Bookish Goals and one of them was to blog more and get a schedule up and running. I want to make Amy's Bookish Life the best it can be and having a blog schedule will be one to do that. 

So, I thought I would share that with you today so you know what to expect on what days. 

Do you have a blog schedule? If so does it help?

2018 Bookish Goals


2018 is well and truly underway and that means that most of us are working on achieving our New Years Resolutions. I have made a few personal goals to work towards in 2018 and I might talk about them in a later post but for now I want to talk about my bookish goals for 2018.

I realised towards the end of 2017 that I needed to set some goals with regards to books in 2018. I'd been really slacking with my reading and blogging come the end of 2017 and it did suck. I felt like my heart wasn't in it anymore and for someone who had been so passionate about books and reading I knew I couldn't go on like it.

I am hoping these goals will bring that passion back and hopefully make me a more established reader and blogger.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #1


Hosted by The Book DateIt's Monday! What Are You Reading? Is a weekly meme where you share what you have recently read, what you are currently reading and what is up next on your TBR list. 

I have decided to start IMWAYR a fresh seeing as it's a new year and all that. I will try and do this every week depending on my schedule but rest assured you will be getting one a few times a month.

Anyway, I have started my new reading year on a high and I'm looking forward to seeing what you are all reading this week!
