Bring Back Paper

Like my last Bring Back Paper post, this is two months worth of an update. I really should get better at this, but last month I realised I hadn’t been reading that much, needless to say I’ve gone a little over the top in making up for it.

What I’m reading

Bring Back Paper

I seem to be continuing my spate of choosing good books, wanting to reach the end of the story is such a good feeling, there is nothing worse than not wanting to carry on reading a book (and I’m guessing no-one wants to hear that about the book they’ve spent time writing either!).

I’ve managed to make my way through ‘We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves’, ‘The Minaturist’, ‘The Husband’s Secret’, ‘The Rosie Project’ and I’ve just moved on to ‘The Rosie Effect’. And oddly, if nothing else if was a great order to read these books in (obviously the best way to read the two Rosie books).

I have really enjoyed all of these books, especially as they were more random purchases as for years I have just stayed with authors I know and love. Of them all I think ‘The Rosie Project’ is the one I’d recommend, it was the only I really couldn’t put down, laughed out loud throughout and loved the way it was written.

I’ve now run out of books, so don’t really want to finish ‘The Rosie Effect’ so am trying to pace myself. Fortunately this week I don’t have any train journeys so I should be ok. But please… recommendations on what I should be reading would be very much welcome!

What I’m scribbling over

Blogtacular introduced me to a fantastic planner from Lollipop Designs. I’ve been loving their wall planner and weekly planner which have been fully incorporated in my day-to-day, the idea of a planner to carry around with me is something I’m quite excited by and enjoying trialling out the prototype which was part of our goody bag.

What I’ve made

Creativity this month has taken a pause as our home gets a lot of love as we prepare to put it on the market. This has meant my office is finally beginning to feel like a great space to work- oh the irony of having to start this over again. I now have floor space thanks to a new storage unit, and I am loving finally getting my pegboard on the wall which now features another goody bag favourite from Blogtacular.

    Plenty of reading! I’m looking forward to starting The Miniaturist. I have a huge to-read pile, though, so not sure when I’ll get to it! Loving that planner, looks fab x Thanks for sharing with #PaperyPeep

      It always feels better when you’ve taken time to read, it balances everything. I hope you enjoy The Miniaturist x
