The Reading Quest 2017: Sign-up

I’m sorry but is this not the cutest reading challenge that anybody ever created?  The gorgeous illustrations are courtesy of CW of Read, Think, Ponder.  You get to pick a character, go on a quest and even level up and build HP.  It’s all adorable and […]

July Wrap-up and Favourites

July Wrap-up and Favourites

July has been incredibly busy at work, and after the great page count of June, I’ve read very little.  That fact would be bleak enough in itself even if it wasn’t for the fact that I’ve actually been excited about the books I own (and […]

Series Review: ‘The Lunar Chronicles’ by Marissa Meyer

Series Review: ‘The Lunar Chronicles’ by Marissa Meyer

Series Rating: 4 out of 5 stars I bought the first instalment of the Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder, on a Bookshop Crawl in London in…February. I picked it up in Foyles when I was with Hanna, waved it around a bit until she assured me that […]

Welcome to the New and Improved Lit Addicted Brit

When I first started blogging, I wanted a simple free platform that was easy to use and would just give me a tiny corner of the internet to chat about books. Blogger was an easy choice and I’ve played around with a few different colour […]

June Wrap-up and Favourites

June was extraordinary. We got married, spent three weeks in Italy exploring, eating and drinking delicious wine and it was truly incredible. Since I’ve been back at work, I’ve been insanely busy but I’ve barely had time to think during the week. Hopefully things will […]

April Wrap-up and Favourites

Hey, guess what?  Planning a wedding while working full time is all kinds of busy.  I’ve read very little and I’ve written even less. Well, I’ve written more than I’ve published and I have found not sticking to such a rigid reviewing format a bit […]

Spring Cosy Reading Night: TBR and Wrap-up

Spring Cosy Reading Night: TBR and Wrap-up

I’ve got more and more into the habit of watching BookTube videos while I’m getting ready or otherwise pottering about the house recently and one of my favourite channels is Lauren’s,  Lauren and the Books.  I trust her recommendations because her reading tastes in the […]

Book Thoughts: ‘Sufficient Grace’ by Amy Espeseth

Book Thoughts: ‘Sufficient Grace’ by Amy Espeseth

Overall rating:  4 out of 5 stars Ruth and her cousin Naomi live in rural Wisconsin, part of an isolated religious community. The girls’ lives are ruled by the rhythms of nature — the harsh winters, the hunting seasons, the harvesting of crops — and […]

March Wrap-up and Favourites

March Wrap-up and Favourites

I’ve been trying to work out this month why in a time when I’m perhaps more interested in books and writing than ever, my blog is quieter.  I know that in part it’s because I’ve had limited free time recently and I’ve had to make […]
