  11. I love this. I have a fashion blog and I have been toying with the idea of branching out into books and travel and I love the blog post ideas you have shared.

  12. I love this post! There are so many fun ideas and Iโ€™ve been wanting to vary my content so I will definitely be using some of these ideas. I especially love the book club one and the favourite book to film adaptation. I canโ€™t wait to write some of them!


  13. Thanks Jenny. There are so many angles to books, aren’t there!. Not just the enjoyment of reading them but appreciation of the places to which they sometimes transport you. I love it when just a particular sentence or quotation you read in a book sends you off down another path entirely…Like serendipity.. x.
