5 Unrealistic Expectations I have about my Early Twenties Thanks to Friends

Recently, I caved and bought the complete boxset of Friends because why not?! Growing up, I remember sitting in on a Thursday/Friday night, eating pizza while my parents drank Jacob's Creek (because that sponsored Friends at the time, you'll remember) and it was one of my absolute favourites. Re-watching it now, in my twenties - well, it's a whole new world.

Time for a giveaway! Basically, I had some doubles when it came to books and organising my shelves so they need to go to new homes (in order to clear space to buy more books) so welcome to #FionasFive giveaway! My biggest giveaway to date. I received all of these for free (from what I can remember anyway) so will be giving them away to random winners who enter in the following way:

Saga by Brian K. Vaughn & Fiona Staples

In short: I love it I love it I love it. But I can't justify a whole post to that one sentence, so instead I will tell you how awesome Saga is in the hope that you will go out and buy it so it will continue being made.

How I Schedule Promotion Posts

There are a million and one posts out there to help with promoting and scheduling blog posts to try and maximise your readership. I've been thinking about these a lot recently as I'm currently in the middle of figuring out what works best for me. So here is the millionth and second post on scheduling; it's more of a this-is-how-I-do it so it's not really right or wrong or even a guide - it's just here.

Films I Watched in 2015

January is essentially the list month on the blog for me, and I always feel like these aren't really glance worthy but I love making them, so here is another one. As well as keeping track of all the books I read a year, I like to track the films I watch too.Today, it's listing of the films I've seen this year which I always love looking at. In 2013 (from July) I watched 77 films, and in 2014 I watched 132 films. Each year I've been secretly challenging myself to watch more and go to the cinema more but I just know haven't done that this year round.

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

You know what I love? When you find a book and just fall in love with it. That is essentially what I did with Everything, Everything and I feel I might be too excited to write about it that I don't think I'll be making much sense.

The Next Together by Lauren James

First of all, let's just ignore the fact that I promised to write a review for every book I read. Sometimes, I just can't be bothered with reviews and I genuinely don't have a lot of time these days. I mean, that sounds ominous, but all I seem to do is work and sleep. Sometimes though, I read, and I read a lot. Here is a wonderful book; The Next Together by Lauren James - my first official book read of 2016 that I devoured.

Shit to do in 2016

Holy fuck, I actually have some goals for 2016 so I hope you aren't bored by these kind of posts because here comes yet another one! I shouldn't be all too surprised that I'm setting myself some targets. Every year, for as long as I can remember, the year would start again and I would scribble in my diary something along the lines of "lose weight, save money, be fabulous" the only difference is that this time I'm posting it on the internet.

What I Read in 2015

Happy New Year everyone! To kick off the year I thought I'd share the books I read in 2015 (Even though I should do a Ruminations post first [cue sucking air through teeth and hating myself for breaking the norm]. So back when I was listing my 2014 Reading List I set myself the goal to read 40 books in 2015. I have been listing my reads in my Rumination posts as I go along because I love tracking what I'm reading every month (and will hopefully continue to do wrap ups over on YouTube) but now that we've reached the new year it is time to share all of the books I read in 2015 and see if I managed 40 or not.
