    I’m not promising anything…

    But one of my goals for 2017 is to actually succeed in posting to Readaraptor more than once a month. This will mean working around other things and mainly taking the opportunity to read when I have it. As many of you will probably remember I used to post to this blog daily. Or at least Monday-Friday. My Goodreads figures for a year were in the triple digits and I spent the majority of my time on twitter talking all things books with my lovely twitter friends. I miss that. I really miss that. And in 2017 I am going to try and make sure I get some of that back.…

    Merry Christmas!

      Ok I know, I know… that’s technically a dragon not a dinosaur… but I think the two are closely related!

    The Liebster Award

    I’m a bit rubbish at doing things like this, mainly because I have this theory that most people don’t want to know much about me an are here to read my thoughts about books. However I have been nominated by one of my favourite blogger Jesse (That Jesse Bloke and Books4Teens) so I thought I should join in!! In this post I am to share 11 facts about me and answer questions that Jesse has set out for me! I will also be nominating other bloggers at the end of it, so watch out, your name could be on there! Let’s see if I can actually find 11 decent facts…

    Readaraptor facelift

    Hello! I am still around. I know things have been stupidly quiet around here lately, I’m not on twitter as much, I’m not blogging as much because I’m not reading anywhere near enough, and I’ve even become terrible at replying to emails. But I am still here, I promise, and I’m not going anywhere. I just wanted to share a little post with you about the facelift you may notice when you click into Readaraptor. I decided recently that this lull might be a great time to do something I’ve been thinking about for a while – switching from Blogger to WordPress. Basically I have plans for Readaraptor, which include…
