October 2019 TBR // No spooky reads, but a lot of otherworldly stories

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

September 2019 Wrap Up // A slow kind of month

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

Announcement: Library Loves // A whole month dedicated to supporting your library

Honestly, it was a struggle not to title this post “Library Loves: WE STAN LIBRARIES.” It’s not a well-kept secret that I love libraries. I visit my local library as often as possible to borrow books, chat to the librarians, and browse new releases. When I go travelling, I’ll sometimes spend hours researching the city’s libraries… Continue reading Announcement: Library Loves // A whole month dedicated to supporting your library

September 2019 TBR // Autumn, audiobooks, and ‘big hitters’

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’

No TBR November // For one month only, I’m not setting myself a reading list

Yep, I said it. As much as I love TBRs and they give me structure and goals for each month, during November, I’m not making one. I know this might seem out of character for me (it is), since I’ve been religiously setting myself a TBR each month since mid-2017, but I wanted to have… Continue reading No TBR November // For one month only, I’m not setting myself a reading list

Book Hauls

August + September 2018 book haul // Book buying bans and V. E. Schwab

(Disclaimer: this post contains spoilers for the Illumicrate Magic+Mayhem box.) I picked up a lot of books at YALC in the last weekend of July, so I was on something of a book buying ban in August. I still ended up with two new books in August, but I was sent them, rather than buying… Continue reading August + September 2018 book haul // Book buying bans and V. E. Schwab

September 2018 Wrap Up // Great poetry, a sweet web comic, and a diverse gay romance

Despite my hopes and wishes for the hot weather remain here forever, things definitely cooled down in September as summer inevitably turned into autumn. Unpopular opinion, but summer is my favourite season and I really enjoyed the hot weather we had in June and July. So I was a little disheartened when the weather cooled… Continue reading September 2018 Wrap Up // Great poetry, a sweet web comic, and a diverse gay romance
