Bookish Bucket List: London 2019

Hello Readers & Friends,

As well as resolutions, I wanted to make sure that I kept myself feeling busy and inspired in the new year.
I'm lucky to live in London (despite my frequent complaints about rude people, tourists, travel costs, rent prices, busyness, general stench etc etc) and as such feel it's my duty to explore the bookish world of London to it's fullest.

This is my bookish bucket list - I'll be doing blog posts to keep you updated on my adventures, and hope you will join in too! If you decide to jump in at any point, make sure you tag me on instagram or use #CKBookishBucketlist so I can see what you're up to. Let's spread the word!

I'm sorry it's all London-based, it's where I live so I had to make it easy for myself but if you want to create your own for your city of choice, please do so!
