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

Book Hauls

July/YALC 2018 book haul // Biggest book haul of the year

July is always a big month for books because three days of YALC is enough to ensure I come home with a suitcase full of books. And guys.

I’ve counted them up and in total, I hauled 19… Continue reading July/YALC 2018 book haul // Biggest book haul of the year

July was fun, exciting, and hot. Summer is my favourite season of the year, and July always ends up being one of my favourite months. This month was no different. I only read four books this month because I was taking part in Tome Topple, the aim of which was to read 500+ page books,… Continue reading July 2018 Wrap Up // Readathons, YALC, and learning how to contour my face

Tome Topple 2018 Wrap Up // Why I failed the readathon

OK, so the title makes this post sound a little overdramatic, but it’s not clickbait, I promise. I started Tome Topple with all the best intentions of reading at least three books, but in the end I only managed to finish half of that. So in my eyes, I did kind of fail. I’m sure… Continue reading Tome Topple 2018 Wrap Up // Why I failed the readathon

July 2018 TBR // The month where I panic-read for YALC

It’s finally July, which means YALC is in less than four weeks! (Take a shot of tea every time I mention YALC in this post. Please caffeinate responsibly.) I’m getting really excited for a full weekend of book signings, panels, and hanging out with friends, but I’ve got to finish a few books on my… Continue reading July 2018 TBR // The month where I panic-read for YALC
