The Ballad of Never After

In this vlog I read a book for my Elf prompt, a book with a map. I chose to pick up The Ballad of Never After by Stephanie Garber. I absolutely loved Once Upon a Broken Heart and preordered this book but only just go it around to reading it. What a fool I was,‘I should have read this straight away because I utterly adored it!

We also got some snow, I did some self care, and I spent time with friends. Ultimately, I feel like I lived my best life in this vlog and am delighted.

Reading For 24 Hours

I hate summer. I’ve said it before and I will say it every summer. The summer heat, mixed with the dampness of the Scottish air, always makes me ill. So I decided to treat myself to a solid 24 hours of reading with zero expectations or obligations, other than to relax.

This was such a chilled readathon, possibly because it was self induced. I managed to finish 3 books, one of which I had started previously. I’m taking this as a win!

I read: Leah and the Offbeat by Becky Abertalli, A Dowry of Blood by S.T. Gibson*, and Our Wives Under the Sea by Julia Armfield.

I also went for a wee walk because I do love a stroll through the woodland and park. Mainly, I just hope to see more deer and squirrels, the seal is usually out this time of year but I didn’t see him. I did see a swarm of ducks though, which was lovely. I’ve added a little bit of my walk to the end of the Vlog for anyone who wants to see the Aberdonian green areas.
