Best Books Of 2019

At the beginning of 2019 I set myself a reading challenge of 52 books. I wanted to push myself, to encourage myself to embrace a hobby that didn’t require a screen and I found that having that challenge in the back of my mind really helped to keep my motivated. (NB – Before people message me, I’ve called this the ‘best books of 2019’ although, as you’ll see, this list isn’t necessarily books that were published last year, just the ones that I read!)

Discover the 10 best books that I read in 2019. Wondering what to read next? Here's my list of the best books I've read in the past year. #talontedlex #bestbooks #bookreview2019 #bookrecommendations #whatimreading #booksoftheyear

10 Books To Add To Your Holiday Read Pile

Some of you may know that I’ve set myself a reading challenge this year (through GoodReads if you would like to join in). I am aiming to read 52 books in 2019, and I’m currently on track having read 33 so far. I have quite varied taste in books – I always have a crime/murder/ghost story book on the go but apart from that I am pretty open to anything.

Repin and click to discover 10 books to read on your holiday this year. Wondering what to read next? Here's my list of the best books I've read recently.

FRIDAY FAVES: Face Treats, Funny Jokes, and Home Fragrance

I’m setting myself a hard limit of under 900 words for this blog post. If I don’t restrict myself I could ramble all day about my recommendations – I really love writing these Friday Faves round up posts as it means I get to natter about things other than beauty.

Current favourites: home fragrance, funny jokes, eye masks, hair colour, a great book, and the best ever dry shampoo! Beauty and lifestyle recommendations. #talontedlex

FRIDAY FAVES: Margate, Murder, & Mascara

As we speak I am on holiday, visiting my parents in France. I say ‘holiday’, but when you’re a freelancer it can be very difficult to switch off so I’ve still got my nose in my laptop for most of the day while I’m here. The only difference is that there’s a dog at my feet and lots of free wine… which is pretty much the dream! Anyway, enough rambling – are you ready for some Friday Faves?
