Hi, it’s been a while… 2019 Book Roundup


Hello fellow bookworms! Well it’s been a while, hasn’t it? I haven’t posted since my bookish freak out in July, it’s been a busy year and to be honest I forget I even run a blog sometimes (oops)! I’m not even going to use this space to say I will post more as there’s always so much to do and hopefully more adventures are lurking somewhen in 2020 which I’m very excited about, but I always love doing these roundup posts, especially at the end of the year, so I had to make sure I wrote at least one post the year.

2019 completely escaped me, but I did manage to read a few books. Some were absolutely unforgettable, some were not so great, but that’s what this post is for, so here is my bookish 2019…

So that was my 2019 year of books! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year, and here’s to another amazing and positively bookish 2020!

Happy New Year and Happy Blogging!

Until next year…

Jade 🙂
