Updated Review: Faker was a light easy read but if I’m being honest, I wasn’t feeling 100% feeling it. I liked Emmie’s character but found the love/hate relationship with Tate tiring to follow. It got better as the book progressed but I think I appreciated the Hating Game more. ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5. ______________________________________________________________________ I pushed myself to go to the gym this morning, although I’d rather be doing what’s on the cover of this lol. I’m working today but looking forward to starting this on my break! ❄️ _____________________________________________________________________
QOTD: what’s your favourite season? In which season do you get most of your reading done? My fav is fall but I probably read the most in winter!

Spent this weekend reading Turn the Tide on Plastic by @theseagull . 🌊 Not a challenging read, but good for everyone trying to understand the scale of plastic pollution and what one can do about it. 🌻 If you’ve got some really worth reading books you’d like share - do so below! 😍 I’m interested in everything.💥 Sustainable agriculture, vertical farming, ethical tourism, global warming, conservation, ocean health, inspiring biographies, really everything. 🙃
Praleidau savaitgalį skaitydama Turn the Tide on Plastic, Lucy Siegle knygą. 🌊 Ypatingai paprastai parašyta knyga, bet smagus lengvas skaitinys visiems norintiems suprasti plastiko taršos skalę ir sužinoti kaip galima prisidėti prie to mažinimo.🧚♀️ Jeigu turit knygų kuriomis likot labai sužavėti, pasidalinkit komentaruose! 😇 Domina viskas, tvarus/ekologiškas žemės ūkis, etiškas turizmas, globalinis atšilimas, vertikali fermininkystė, gamtosauga, vandenynų sveikata ar įkvepiančių žmonių biografijos. Pasidalinkit! 🤗

Well I’m not sure how much these fairy lights resemble a love heart but god loves a trier 😂
Day 9 for #bookwormtalenovember is ‘Easy Read’ so it had to be a good old chick lit which I always seem to speed through. It’s not a genre I tend to go for but they are nice light reads to break up the more intense books I’m often drawn to. I loved ‘I Heart New York’, the first in this series and was excited to find the 4th instalment in the flat I’m renting. I didn’t love it as much as the first plus I missed the middle two sequels but all in all a breezy read with a relatable female narrator. And who doesn’t love Vegas (I’ve been twice and can’t wait to go again!!)
QOTD: Which genre do you turn to for a quick easy read?

If you’re a regular reader of my little world, you know that there are 3 things that I need to make me happy at the end of each day:
1) A glass of rich, red wine with dinner (ok, maybe not NEED, but preferred😉🍷) 2) A long, hot bath at the end of the day to wash the stress away, and... 3) A good book I can read in the tub and fall asleep to in bed, still clutching the book in my hand as I drift off to dreamland.
My new favorite app, Reco (#HelloReco) helps me with that last requirement for happiness.

FINALLY some sun here in Michigan! I started Sourdough this weekend and it’s been the perfect book. I’m such a mood reader, and what I needed was a short, easy read. Anyone else feel the need to mix in a short book after reading a few long ones?
