Blogtober // Top 5 Disney Villains

During October, Haf and Anniek are hosting blogtober, which is a month of post prompts for every day. I really wanted to do the Day 5 prompt because I’m a huge Disney fan. As much as I love showering the heroes with love and attention, Disney has some pretty great villains, too. They’re cunning, ambitious,… Continue reading Blogtober // Top 5 Disney Villains

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

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

Why I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year

Yup, I said it, I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year. I’d be lying if  I said I didn’t want to and I almost caved on October 31st, but I made myself a promise. I know what happened last year, and I told myself I wouldn’t do NaNo this year because of it. NaNoWriMo – National… Continue reading Why I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year

October 2018 Wrap Up // I read more books than in any other month of 2018

I shocked myself in October by reading more books than any other month of this year. I was still pretty busy, but I think I managed my time better this month in order to fit in more reading hours. I also went on a few long train journeys, which meant lots of additional reading time. The total… Continue reading October 2018 Wrap Up // I read more books than in any other month of 2018

October 2018 TBR // Manga, Vengeful, and Muse of Nightmares

October is the month of autumn leaves, cosy scarves, and me furiously lamenting the end of summer. I know some people theme their reading around Halloween and pick up spooky books, but I don’t usually do this because I don’t read much horror. I also wouldn’t want to read only one genre for the full… Continue reading October 2018 TBR // Manga, Vengeful, and Muse of Nightmares
