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

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:Β 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’

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

September TBR // Poetry, comics, and YA

As hints of autumn appear in the air, September is going to be a busy month. I’m away visiting quite a few friends this month, which means lots of socialising and fun days out, but hopefully I’ll be able to catch up on reading during trains journeys. I’ve got a couple of ARCs and new… Continue reading September TBR // Poetry, comics, and YA

September Wrap Up (The month where I fell in love with Check, Please!)

As September comes to a close and the weather gets increasingly wet and windy (excuse me, where was my final mini-heatwave of the summer??), I’m pulling my fluffy jumpers out of the wardrobe and looking back at the books I read this month. I’d planned to read a lot of ARCs during September, and,Β somehow, I… Continue reading September Wrap Up (The month where I fell in love with Check, Please!)

September 2017 TBR (Or the month where I plan to read alllll the ARCs)

September has arrived in style with dew on the grass and frost in the air. I hope we get some more warm weather before autumn really sets in. Since I still have a lot of ARCs from YALC to get through before they’re released this month, my TBR consists of mostly those, plus a few… Continue reading September 2017 TBR (Or the month where I plan to read alllll the ARCs)
