Bookish: Quick Update…Just ‘Cause

helloI’m like a bus… no posts for a couple of days and then two at once! How irritating great!

I’m just writing this as a quick ‘howdy!’ My updates have been sporadic lately and I’ve fallen behind with all my life goals. These include such things as:-

  • Having a bath that contains all the Lush bath bombs in the world
  • Eating my way through a cheesecake shaped like myself
  • Learning all the words to Run DMC ‘It’s Like That’
  • Working out how to use the SmartTV

There’s some other stuff like work and wedding planning and I’ve actually started exercising *shudders*. I don’t care what anyone says, exercising just can’t be good for you.

I have so much content to slap you upside the heads with. To the point where you’ll be begging me to stop.

Let me give you some info…


  • 21 reviews written and pending posting
  • 5 reviews that need to be written
  • 3 pending Top 5 Wednesday’s for June
  • 2 book edits currently created and pending posting
  • 9 tags tagged in
  • 5 gooooooooooold rings
  • 1 hen do up and coming
  • 1 wedding to be planned

I just wanted to drop this post to say that if you have tagged me in stuff…. you better believe I’m going to do it. Don’t think about stopping, that stuff gets me excited every time I see a pingback!

Also, I have a very random way of organising my life and I want to make sure that I respond to every comment and respond to every response, if that makes sense? It may take me a couple of days but I will always get round to it.

Also, I just wanted to take this moment to say…

thank you 2

To anyone who has liked, commented or followed me.

I’ve only been doing this a couple of months and I’m having such fun and it’s all honestly because of the level of interaction that I’ve been able to participate in.

Rock on, book nerds. Rock on.

Yes, I’m filled with the joys of summer. Yes, I’m on my third prosecco of the evening.

Correlation does not equal causation here guys and… er… guyettes.

Ok, maybe it does in the case of three prosecco’s…

  1. Hehe I feel like I’m in the same boat as you! I’ve had a shitload of reviews pending in my drafts section for months (for nitpicky editing or just to let them sit in my brain), so I get what you’re saying with this post. But do keep ’em coming girl! I love your posts (they’re so fun and entertaining), and I can’t wait to read more of them. Cheers! ❀

    1. Thank you! Don’t worry (or do worry, whichever fits!) there’s plenty of content yet to come! I’m going to offline/ on hiatus for about a week in August and then for almost the entirety of November so am trying to do a load of pre-content and work out this scheduling thingy!

  2. 21 reviews plus work PLUS wedding planning? I’m convinced you’re a secret time lord (lady?) because woof, that is pretty incredible. And I have a mountain of tag posts to go through, so I’ll be sure to tag you in them. πŸ˜€

    And it’s been such a blast interacting with you! I can’t believe we do all this work for free but meeting bloggers like you makes it all worthwhile. Much love and hugs! ❀

    1. I would like to say that I am a Wonder Woman type but a lot of those reviews were pre-written pre-blog to make sure I had enough stuff to post. I was worried that I would run out of stuff to say!

      I’ve very much enjoyed interacting with you also! I’m glad you don’t mind my incoherent lengthy ramblings on your posts!!


  3. Holy smokes! When did you write so many reviews? When did you read so many books? Gerry…have you bought a time-turner and where and how and can I have it for a day? 🀩
    Phew, can’t wait to read your posts! I have 0 written, so good job Gerry! πŸ‘

    Nice goals btw! I’m working on the 4th myself, a bit concerned on the 2nd, and God did not create us to exercise! Except I’m an atheist, so stardust then? So basically Neil Gaiman? Is he a god? I don’t think he exercises either.

    And oooh good luck with your wedding plans, I’m actually more excited for it than the royal wedding, like Meghan who? Except…she did have Tom Hardy attend hers… πŸ€” Kidding, I wish you the very best, Tom Hardy or not! ❀️‍

    1. Haha! A lot of reviews were pre-written before the blog because I wanted to make sure I had enough content ready. Now when I’m having a busy week and don’t have to time to write up a current one I chuck one of those in!

      I have a love/hate relationship with our SmartTV. I love it and it hates me. I’ve been watching a ton of exercise videos on YouTube and doing them in the living room, the cat watches me so I get some entertainment out of her reactions! My body was built for puddings not push ups!

      It’s crazy how cool that wedding was! Now this may interest you… Tom Hardy doesn’t live too far from where I work! Apparently him and his wife went out for a curry one evening in the town and it made local news. Me and a lot of the girls from the office were genuinely tempted to go to that curry restaurant and just hang out… for like ever in case he came back!

      1. I love it when I hit send too early πŸ™„ Anyway, I have nothing written in advance, so I’m always slacking haha

        Haha I bet your cat thinks you’re crazy, my dog would sniff and nudge me all the time, so no exercise was possible with him there πŸ˜‚

        I know haha, but I bet yours will be better. πŸ˜€ Oooooh, Gerry… I admire you. I would just go and stalk him through his window, his wife too, and I’d get arrested pretty soon. πŸ˜‚

        1. My cat generally looks at me with a not so thinly veiled gaze of disdain at everything I do so me leaping about doesn’t impress her much. She gets really funny when I do yoga though because she just wants to weave under my legs and nudges my hands for pets.

          I’m not very good at writing in advance but I’m going to try and get a whole bunch done before my wedding/ honeymoon as I’ll be offline for a almost a month and want to still be able to blather on!

          1. Hahaha sounds familiar, my mom has one cat I sometimes call little Satan. πŸ˜€ Haha maybe she wants to join you. πŸ˜€

            Well you obviously are hahaha! I bet you’ll manage it, but if you don’t that’s okay too, we won’t forget you, and plus I’ll be eagerly awaiting a review of your Hobbiton honeymoon haha. πŸ˜€
