NEW BLOG | Rachel's Rambles


Well , if you've been reading my blog posts for the past few months , I keep mentioning that I haven't been inspired to post like I used to. I tried to incorporate other things into my blog like movie reviews and history posts but I felt like the people who followed my book blog didn't want to see that.  

So I made a spontaneous decision to start fresh with a new blog. I think I should get this out of the way first , THERE WILL STILL BE BOOK POSTS , plenty of them , actually. 

But in between that , I will post about other things I love. I have decided that blogging is about you and what you like , not what others expect from you.

My new blog =

I want to thank everyone who has supported this blog for the past year and a half , it has always shocked me. I hope you continue to follow me on my new blog! 

All of my social media and email links are the same. Except for bloglovin which has changed to this link. 

So there'll be no more posts from Rambling Reads , now to Rachel's Rambles.

April Favourites

I've been loving a lot of stuff for the past while so I thought I'd write about them! I'm just going to get straight into it!

James Bond

This is pretty random but basically , one day I was home sick from school and I wanted to watch a movie while painting and I don't really know why , but I had an urge to watch some James Bond. I've seen the odd Bond film over the years but I've never really cared for them much but I decided to start with the Daniel Craig ones and work backwards (for some reason...). I'm currently on Tomorrow Never Dies so that's my 6th movie and I am obsessed. Late on the band wagon doesn't quite cut it...


I love musicals and I love history but when I first heard some songs from this show I hated it. That was about 3 months ago but my friend told me to listen to it and I did it just to please her and well , I am now in love with it. I envy anyone who has the chance to see it because I can't even comprehend how wonderful that'd be! My favourite songs are "Burn" "Satisfied" and "The Room Where It Happens". 


Kathleen is a beauty youtuber who makes chatty videos as well! I love watching her tutorials , they're really easy to follow! She is honestly one of the funniest people I have ever watched! 

Cristina Mendoza Rosales 

I also have a character favourite this month. Cristina from Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare is such a great character. She's quirky , loyal and brave. She was one of the best things about Lady Midnight and I can't wait to read more about her in the rest of the series. 

Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay 

I got this for Christmas but I have been using it so much this month. I adore glittery shadows and the pink and gold theme for this palette is right up my street! I haven't tried the other palettes but I think that this one is more me.

What have you loved this month?
