It’s been a year to the point that I’ve found it difficult to keep up with writing blog posts. My Instagram account has blown up though! (@bewitchingreadsx)
As most will know I’m currently at university, 2021 was the year I changed my degree, boke my ankle, had two new jobs, started ADHD stimulant medication and had a mental breakdown. 2021 has been utterly awful, and to be honest I’m glad to see the back of it.
2022 will be better. – I’m also hoping blog posts will be back to how they were in 2020, and I hope to actually keep on top of my reviews and blog posts for publishers and to get back to me.
I’m wishing you all a very merry holiday season.
Keep safe, get vaccinated, wear a mask, and wash your hands.
It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. If you have been following me for the last couple of years, you’ll know already how much I love Book Box Club.
This Month’s box was all about mermaids! – and it didn’t disappoint.
First up we have our book! Skin of the Sea by Natasha Bowen
Simidele is one of the Mami Wata, mermaids duty-bound to collect the souls of those who die at sea and bless their journeys back home to the Supreme Creator.
But when a living boy is thrown overboard a slave ship, Simi saves his life, going against an ancient decree and bringing terrible danger to the mami wata.
Now Simi must journey to the Supreme Creator to make amends – a journey of vengeful gods, treacherous lands and legendary creatures. If she fails, she risks not just the fate of all Mami Wata, but also the world as she knows it.
A lovely hot drinks cup with a mermaid design, accompanied by some mermaid socks, with boobies *childish giggle*. A wooden mermaid pin. – which has already found itself on my pencil case! A mermaid tail pen (again, now lives in my pencil case) AND a bath fizzer, have yet tried the bath fizzer, I’m waiting for the end of the work week.
Absolutely loved October’s box! Can’t wait for November’s!

I’d like to start this post with a huge thank you to Dellybird over at dellybird.co.uk
I’ve decided for this tag to just tag everyone that is reading it, I hope you are all staying safe and coping as well as you can during lockdown, It’s such a hard time for everyone right now. As someone that works in education, I am certainly feeling the stress and anxiety about my job, with worrying about how my pupils are doing on a daily basis. I am missing my crazy normal life! I’ve recently had covid-19 myself, thankfully I have recovered, I hope you are all keeping as safe as you can.
2. Snacking – A book that is a ‘guilty pleasure’ read
3. Netflix – a series you want to start
Okay, I am aware this next one is cheating. I’m not really a book adaptation person so I really struggled. I do however love The Perks of Being a Wallflower – and it is on Netflix at the moment.
4. Deep Clean – a book that has been on your TBR for ages.
5. Animal Crossing – A book you recently bought because of the hype
6. Productivity – A book you learned from, or had an impact on you.
7. FaceTime – A book you were gifted
8. Self-care – What is one thing you have done recently to look after yourself.
Putting mine and my children’s mental health first when it comes to lockdown. Both are on home school. Yes we are working, but we a doing it to the beat of our own drum, and also are filling our days with board games and Disney movies.
Bonus! – an upcoming release you are looking forwards to
As I said at the top, I tag everyone that is reading this post.
