Milk in tea. The eternal debate.

Over the last year, I’ve been trying really hard to try and have less milk in my tea (and coffee for that matter). But it’s actually really hard. As someone who grew up drinking milky tea and coffee, both with sugar, it took me many years to wean myself off of sugar alone. Milk, however, seems to be even harder. Mostly because it really does change the whole taste of the drink. While sugar obviously just adds sweetness to a tea or coffee, milk alters the whole flavour of a tea or coffee. … View Post

Snap Judgement (Samantha Brinkman #3) by Marcia Clark

I am really, really enjoying this series. I feel like Marcia Clark is in a really great rhythm with them, and they’ve been getting steadily better. I can’t wait to read any others she writes!

Favourite Comfort Re-reads

This year has been a bit of a weird one, with good and not-so-good things happening. This has definitely had an impact on my reading, especially during those not-so-great times. I find that I just don’t enjoy reading when I’m sad, as either I don’t want to read a great book and risk having memories of sad things impacting it forever onwards. Or, I’ll read some average/bad books and I won’t enjoy them, which doesn’t help my mood.… View Post
