This week is here to celebrate the literary legend's birthday and the legacy that he left behind. Let's spend some of the lockdown reminding ourselves how truly great William Shakespeare was.
The vast amount of time that we have to ourselves to get lost in books, is the silver lining of the lockdown.
Let's bring spring indoors and take a look at some floral named and spring-themed books that we can read throughout the lockdown.
We are in the middle of Shakespeare Week! I don't think it could have come at a better time; with many of us staying in our homes thanks to the Coronavirus outbreak, some William Shakespeare is very welcome!
Despite my family having roots in Ireland, I am yet to visit this stunning place. My green eyes have always been drawn to the emerald country, so until I get to visit, I will just celebrate the famous St. Patrick's Day!
Spring is approaching! And with it comes longer and warmer days to spend in the garden reading. There are so many new releases coming out over Spring 2020, but here are six books that I can't wait to come out over Spring.

I will let this get to my head, Charles Dickens and I share the same birthday as each other. Obviously, this is a sign . . . right? Not just that but, as I have mentioned several times on my blog before, Dickens also stayed at the hotel where I work, alongside Wilkie Collins in 1857. It was during this trip that they penned The Lazy Tour of the Two Idle Apprentices, featuring a glimpse into one of the most famous friendships in English Literature. Today marks 208 years since the birth of Dickens (and 27 years since the birth of me, just in case you were curious) and I think we should celebrate by remembering the literary hero's life and some of his greatest work.
February is here and with Valentine's Day soon approaching, bookshops are decorating their windows with the latest romantic releases and filling their shelves with tear inducing classics.

To make it fair-ish, I have included my favourite five romance novels and five of the highest-rated by readers online.
