Links I’ve Enjoyed This Week – 17/02/19

Good morning and welcome to my weekly round up inspired by Novels and Nonfiction. The weather has been like spring this week so I thought I change the photo from the roaring fire to something more sunny and outdoors. It’s not quite warm enough to sit outside and read but it’s nice to dream! 😉 So grab yourself a cosy spot, and have a browse at all the lovely links I have for you this week.

  1. Not once but twice! Actual life goals right there! (Well blogger goals anyway 😉) This softens the blow of waking up on the wrong side of 35 immensely 😁 Thanks Nicki!

  2. Thanks for featuring my reviews, different but both wonderfully atmospheric books! I love the links you find around the web, I particularly like the ‘Don’t Send Your Marie Kondo’ed Clutter to Africa’ post – you’d think it’s common sense not to send broken or out-dated stuff but apparently not! I also like the idea of shifting from ‘declutter’ to ‘never clutter’ although it’s much easier said than done! I’ve bookmarked this post to read the rest of the articles later. Great post, Nicki.

  3. Thanks for including my post! I had to check out your link to the article on giving ‘Obligation Chocolate’ in Japan for Valentine’s Day? What is that craziness? That would be sooo expensive and totally unnecessary! Thank Goodness they are pushing back!

  4. I already checked out a few of the other blogposts. For a summer read, I’m adding the funny My Favourite One Night Stand to my readlist :-). I also loved Emma’s review of The Sewing Machine that escaped me till now. Thanks for featuring my review of Gone Midnight as well Nicki! xxx
