My December Books

I am and always have been an avid reader liking a variety of genres and have read many of the greats and some not so. These days I usually stick to crime thriller or chick lit fiction, cook books, craft and style books. I indulge my passion for books and reading every month by buying a handful from Amazon, Waterstones or W.H Smith's. December is always a book heavy month for me as my Birthday is on the 4th and three weeks later Santa always delivers some more. So I try to be restrained with my own book buying, but there are usually a few that I really long for and I give in to temptation.
This is the beautiful selection of books that I was given for my Birthday, Christmas and some I have bought for myself.


Ever since I was a little girl I have dabbled with writing fiction, poetry and plays with the aim of one day becoming a published author. The writing and reading bug never left me and in my late teens I studied English Literature and Language A-Levels and a degree in Fashion and Cultural writing in my early twenties. Now I am in the final year of my twenties my dream of one day writing a book of my own is alive more than ever.

  1. Morwenna, I am a real book lover, too. Not a good idea to let me loose in a book store.:-)
    Our friend, Susan Branch, quoted someone the other day - "If you can dream it, you can make it so." I'm sure you will become a published author one day.

  2. Hello sweetie! Yopu got a great selection, lucky you! I'll be interested to know what you think of 'Miette'? I have it too...was a little disappointed somehow. Anyway...as someone struggling to write a novel herself, my advice would be: Don't listen to your dreaded inner critic & just get something down on that paper! It does get easier. What makes a writer is...writing! You can probably tell that I'm trying to follow my own advice. It's hard, but worth it...even if it's just for the sense of satisfaction. Happy Wednesday, darling. Love you xoxo

  3. Oooh, I had no idea...just another reason you and I are kindred spirits! I've wanted to be writer ever since I was a little girl. :)

    That 'Plate to Pixel' book sounds cool! Let me know how it is.

    I think of you every day and want to you to know it. :)

    xoxo Dawn

  4. I have miette as well!! I do love the scalloped pages. I made a cake in there that didn't turn out so well, but it may have been me....

    Let me know what you think of scandilicious....I have a couple of family members with scandinavian backgrounds that might love a treat. I've looked and that but didn't get it....now you're enticing me further!!

    As for writing....WRITE my dear. I've been a writing teacher for most of my days...and the only way to learn is truly to do it. Keep a journal...carry a notepad with you and jot things down as you see them. They will be excellent writing prompts later....
    Love you!!
