Alrighty. I got bored. So, I thought, I’ve read 270 books so far this year, what better way to entertain myself than forcibly pick single books out of that to answer a bunch of questions!
But. It’s not like I have a whole lot else to do, is it.

WordPress is changing its editor permanently and I know that invokes a gut reaction of no thank you! in a lot of people, but really, the blocks editor is great, imo. So I’m going to try convert you to my way of thinking (and also help you out some because it is not easy and definitely frustrating to use at first).
All of your posts will automatically convert to blocks on 1st June, but I would recommend first going through a few to convert manually, to check that the formatting doesn’t somehow get messed up. It does happen, and it’s nicer to know beforehand than to be suddenly hit with it.
But anyway. Some tips and tricks, to make your post-blocks permanency a little bit easier!

Introducing the #FFFeb book tag! I figured, since it’s the end of the month and all, it would be interesting to ask a few questions and see how people got on so. Here we are.
The questions can be found below (first up), followed by my own answers. And if you see this, and did F/F Feb, feel free to join in!

I was tagged in this ages back by Mahana @ sapphiclibrary and then I promptly forgot about it (oops). But now, here I am, trying to get better about book blogging, so step one is actually fulfilling this tag, where I answer the questions provided to me and then give 10 of my own.
So anyway. Let’s go!

I was tagged by Ngọc @ Read with Ngọc to do this book tag. And I’ve been procrastinating all day, so I thought, why not procrastinate a little further and do it right now. So, because I have zero impulse control, that’s exactly what I’ve done!

Shri @sunandchai tagged me in this a while back. And I read the questions, and was completely stumped for how I’d answer. To be honest, I’m still completely stumped now, but as I have to get this done so I can actually have something scheduled for while I’m away and can’t post (hello from Cornwall!), I figured I should get it done.

I was tagged by Lori @ lorisbookshelfreads to do this tag that I don’t quite know what it’s about but I assume just. Answering questions with the theme of spring cleaning? (Not that I ever do spring cleaning, it’s only ever more like procrastination cleaning.)
But anyway. Let’s go!

(Okay, I’ve never done one of these before so this is gonna be interesting.)
I was tagged by Laura @ thebookcorps to do this tag of books that I want to read but don’t actually want to bother reading. Which is gonna be fun because I have near 750 books on my TBR. How many of those do I want to admit to not being bothered to read…..
I only got round to this now because of course, it being the end of term, my work load is increasing. Makes sense.

Crush: a strong and often short-lived infatuation, particularly for someone beyond your reach…
Darcy Barrett has undertaken a global survey of men. She’s travelled the world, and can categorically say that no one measures up to Tom Valeska, whose only flaw is that Darcy’s twin brother Jamie saw him first and claimed him forever as his best friend. Despite Darcy’s best efforts, Tom’s off limits and loyal to her brother, 99%. That’s the problem with finding her dream man at age eight and peaking in her photography career at age twenty—ever since, she’s had to learn to settle for good enough.
When Darcy and Jamie inherit a tumble-down cottage from their grandmother, they’re left with strict instructions to bring it back to its former glory and sell the property. Darcy plans to be in an aisle seat halfway across the ocean as soon as the renovations start, but before she can cut and run, she finds a familiar face on her porch: house-flipper extraordinaire Tom’s arrived, he’s bearing power tools, and he’s single for the first time in almost a decade.
Suddenly Darcy’s considering sticking around to make sure her twin doesn’t ruin the cottage’s inherent magic with his penchant for grey and chrome. She’s definitely not staying because of her new business partner’s tight t-shirts, or that perfect face that’s inspiring her to pick up her camera again. Soon sparks are flying—and it’s not the faulty wiring. It turns out one percent of Tom’s heart might not be enough for Darcy anymore. This time around, she’s switching things up. She’s going to make Tom Valeska 99 percent hers.
