Folks, I had a fast-paced December. I went to a blogging event, took part in a readathon, and celebrated Christmas and new year. I read nine books in December, which was a good high to finish the year on. The Poppy War // 4 stars // Hardback/Audiobook After putting this on hold for about 10… Continue reading December 2019 Wrap Up // Christmas, End of Yearathon, and hitting my Goodreads goal
At the beginning of 2019, I tried to predict which books would be my 5 star reads this year. Now that we’re nearing the end of the year, I want to go back and see if many (or any) of them turned out to be true. I love these kinds of “looking back” posts, because… Continue reading Five star predictions from the beginning of 2019 // Did they turn out to be true?
First off, since this post is scheduled to go up on Christmas Day, I’ve gotta say Merry Christmas friends! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day.

End of Yearathon runs from 26th December to 31st… Continue reading End of Yearathon 2019 TBR

For the last month of 2019, I wanted to pick up some of the books that I’ve been meaning to get to all year. But there are quite a lot of them and I couldn’t narrow it down. So I asked you guys to help me decide. I posted a thread of polls on Twitter,… Continue reading December 2019 TBR // Chosen by you
November was pretty busy for me so I only read two out of the five planned books on my TBR. But, I did set it as a ‘loose’ TBR, and I read a couple of other books instead. I’m still reading the third book of the original five, and the fourth and fifth I’m hoping… Continue reading November 2019 Wrap Up // A cake, a car, and characters I loved
In the year of our Lord 2019, I’ve been trying to make my TBR a little less unwieldy. My Goodreads TBR is all of the books (owned and not) that I want to read in the coming year (or two). For a while, that TBR stood at 177 books. But as someone who reads about… Continue reading “I’m just never going to read that” // Books I’ve recently taken off my TBR
