4 Tips for the perfect evening in & some of my most-loved books


Throughout the week, we are constantly kept busy by our everyday lives, be it work or school. My energy has been sapped from the events of the day, that I feel to weary and I end up not taking proper time for myself, time in which I completely relax and unwind.

For example, reading, the one thing that never fails to calm me before I go to sleep, and makes my worries and stresses fly out the window. Instead becomes something that gets put on the back burner until the weekend or until I have the time. What I'm trying to say is, is that we mustn't put our 'me' time on the dusty shelves, leaving it there until we reach a point in which our resources are depleted, and our mind is charged to the maximum with stress. Of course it's never that simple, so here are my top tips on how to have a relaxing evening.

12 Truths that you may not know about me


1. I despise small talk, I'd much rather get to the juicy core of the person that I'm talking to. This is also probably one of the main reasons why I don't enjoy going to parties so much because there's usually a bunch of people that I don't know, and that means small talk. However, I understand that it's an evil necessity at times, but it's so monotonous, ugh.

The Rebrand 'Flickering Lights'



As the title obviously states, I have renamed my blog to 'Flickering Lights.' I thought I should let you know since you're probably wondering, 'Who the hell is Flickering Lights?!' Well, it's actually the new and improved - hopefully, this is yet to be seen, haha - 'Simply Bookish Things.'

Top Ten Tuesday #17 - 2016 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn't Get To (But Totally Want To)

Hosted by the lovely people over at the Broke and Bookish.
This weeks topic: 2016 releases I meant to read but didn't get to (but totally want to).

I am probably the absolute worst person in terms of keeping up to date with new releases. I mean you know it's bad when you start thinking of 2015 releases for this list and then realize they weren't released in 2016. Like did Winter by Marissa Meyer seriously come out in 2015?! I swear time has flown by so fast that I feel like 2015 and 2016 amalgamated into one year in my memories.
