Book Reviews feat. Kurt Vonnegut

Hello! Thanks for all your comments on part one of my January book reviews. It would seem you all have a lot to say about Peter Pan! Disclaimer: I apologise for the quality of these photographs. It was dark. It was late. I was achey and tired. I'm a terrible person, I know. 

I've so far managed to read a total of 11 books this month which I think is pretty good. I'm also part the way through my 12th book so hopefully I'll finish that before the month is out because even numbers are a lot nicer, right?! If you'd like to keep up with my reading, you can do so via my Goodreads, my 2014 reads page and my hashtags on Instagram: #beesreads and #bees52books.  Feel free to leave your thoughts below. Here's part two of my January book reviews:

Book Reviews feat. Shane Jones

We all love book recommendations, right?! I thought it'd be a clever idea to post monthly book reviews for you guys instead of being so sporadic about them. Neat, huh?! It's a pretty good way for me to take stock of my reading in 2014 and, hopefully, recommend some awesome books to you lovely lot. January was a really good reading month for me because I was full of new year enthusiasm! I read some classic children's literature, a translation, some YA and a few books I've been meaning to read for ages. If you want to keep up to date with my reads each month you can do so in a number of ways. You can  follow me on Goodreads or follow #beesreads and #bees52books on Instagram! Feel free to start a little discussion in the comments below. It'd be great to use these book posts as little bits of the internet where we can recommend reads for one another. I've had to split this month's reviews into two posts because there were too many! Part two will be up in a few days but, for now, here's part one!

How To Make A TBR Jar

I own a few books that I have yet to read. I also make pretty bloody huge understatements regularly. I have, therefore, decided to create a TBR jar.

A lot of you express your horror to me with regards to the amount of books you have still yet to read, so I'm suggesting that we all follow my lead…

14 Books I Want To Read in 2014

Thanks to a few crazed charity shop sprees and a weird devotion to the written word, I own quite a few books. Books that I have yet to read. Books that I have picked up and put back down. Books that I probably should have read ages ago but haven't out of fear or lethargy or being busy or BECAUSE I LIKE TO WATCH BACK TO BACK EPISODES OF CATFISH, OKAY?! If you read my new year's resolutions the other day, you'll know that I was planning on setting myself a book challenge for the year. After much deliberation, I decided to set myself the challenge of reading 52 books in 2014. I'm hoping that this challenge will encourage me to use my spare time more wisely, and to embrace texts that I've either been frightened of or have been putting off for a while. If you'd like to keep up with my progress, you can follow me on GoodreadsInspired by some of the booktube videos I've been watching lately, I thought I'd pick out 14 unread books on my bookshelf to show you that I definitely want to have read by the time 2015 rears its futuristic head. Let me know in the comments below what books you want to read in 2014 so we can have a little natter and everyone can find lots of recommendations!
