Hedgehog’s like to read too!

Looking for the cutest little furry friend to follow on Instagram?

If you’re anything like me, you’ll understand my obsession with cute little animals. When I was growing up my family saw our fair share of beloved small pets come and go and I’m now the happiest owner of the most loveable house rabbit. Recently, my best friend in Canada adopted a precious little hedgehog named Pig and has recently started an Instagram account full of super cute photos of her new furry friend (see Pig reading some of his favourite books below!). If you want to see more of Pig in silly situations I recommend you give her a follow here at @pigtheh0g !!

Top 5 Books of 2018 (So far!)

I have been terribly inactive this past week due to the resurgence of a Sims addiction I can’t seem to keep under control and my latest obsession with The Eye of the World, the first Wheel of Time novel. I had meant to write a post for A Little But a Lot’s ‘Six for Sunday’ prompt Favourite Books this Year So Far but I was 4 generations deep into my Sims’ dynasty and couldn’t tear myself away long enough to do any writing. So I’ve altered this prompt down to 5 books and I’m releasing it 6 days late. Better late than never, right?

Now the tricky part. I’ve read 11 books so far this year and other than an isolated instance, I’ve enjoyed them all very much. I definitely get trapped in the mindset that every book I finish is ‘the best book I’ve ever read’ immediately after completion, so it’s fun to reflect on them all weeks or months after the fact. So here are the 5 books that I consider to be the best of my 2018 reads (so far!).
