Things That Make Me Happy 96

being able to confidently DNF a book & move on
secondhand bookshops that make reading all the more accessible
fancy deckled edges, from time to time
reading seasonally, even though it sometimes hurts to hold off
lightly creased book spines
afternoons spent reading in the sun-drenched garden with mum
thrillers that aren't lying when they say you won't see the twist coming
falling in love with an author & realising they've written many, many books
slowly recognising that your taste is evolving & seeing where it takes you
finding new-to-me bookstagrammers

I have been sharing things that make me happy lists for years. If you'd like to read some more, you can scroll through the archive.

It's #IndieBookshopWeek so to celebrate I'm sharing a series of bookish posts, from a throwback bookish adventure to Bookbarn International to sharing 24 books on my to buy list
What's #IndieBookshopWeek? Independent Bookshop Week, which runs from 20th June to the 27th June 2020, is part of the Books Are My Bag campaign, run by the Booksellers Association, and it seeks to celebrate independent bookshops in the UK and Ireland. 
Whilst many of us can't get out to independent bookshops at the moment, many of our faves are offering online orders or orders by phone. If you're able to, treat yourself to a book or two from an indie or, alternatively, share links to your favourite bookshops on your various social media platforms and spread the love. If you're looking for independent bookshops to support, please consider buying from Black-owned bookshops. 
This post isn't affiliated with the campaign and I haven't been asked to post any content. I just wanted to share this post with you all and to share the campaign because it's something I support. I have, however, collaborated with them in recent years so I'm stating that here for full transparency. 


  1. One of the most recent books to just make me all happy and giddy was 'Well Met'by Jen DeLuca. The whole story was great but the romance especially just made me really soft and the use of a Renaissance Faire within it was such a fun addition. I think if you are book lover then you must have writing talents. Like bee have. I appreciate bee start blogging and share her thoughts on the internet.

  2. I second with blogger's opinion as I believe that books are the best companion of human. Also, as a designer, If you are looking forward to get an attractive cover print for upcoming book launch than tap to professional logo designer in UAE expert at anytime under budget.
