This month is going to be wild, because I’m actually going on holiday twice in three weeks??? (This was mostly unintentional, they just happened to fall at similar times.) I’m heading to Budapest with some friends, and Barcelona with my family and I’m really excited for both. I’m also trying to finish up a project… Continue reading October 2019 TBR // No spooky reads, but a lot of otherworldly stories
It was a pretty slow reading month for me in September. And I decided to put that in the title because I think it’s OK to be frank and open about that. Sometimes we hold ourselves to such high targets that any time we read less than seven or eight books in a month (or… Continue reading September 2019 Wrap Up // A slow kind of month
A September, my fateful foe. I like September itself, but I don’t like what it heralds: the end of summer. Summer is my favourite season, so when the nights start to cut in and it gets colder, I’m just a sad bean. (I want to be warm all the time and to be able to wear… Continue reading September 2019 TBR // Autumn, audiobooks, and ‘big hitters’

The aim is to read as many ARCs as you can during August and take part in challenges (if you want to). I’m aiming to… Continue reading August 2019 TBR // ARC August
July is always a great month and this time was no different. The weather was hot, YALC was amazing, and I read some really great books. I read eight books in July, including three audiobooks, two short stories, and a graphic novel. And, aside from The Devouring Gray, which I’ll be finishing in August, I… Continue reading July 2019 Wrap Up // YALC, Indian Lit Readathon, and new vegan food
This is (ever so slightly) belated since we’re already 13 days into July but I’m excited to share the books I want to read for the rest of the month. And a sneaky few books that I may or may not have already read. Quite a few of these aren’t your typical ‘summer reads’, but… Continue reading July 2019 TBR // Not-so-summer reads?
