Five star predictions from the beginning of 2019 // Did they turn out to be true?

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?

Hopefully this might give you some ideas about how to remove those extra few books that you’re not likely to read (but have been holding onto) so you can… Continue reading How to spring clean your Goodreads TBR (at any time of the year)

November 2019 Wrap Up // A cake, a car, and characters I loved

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

“I’m just never going to read that” // Books I’ve recently taken off my TBR

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

November 2019 TBR // A mix of sci-fi, fantasy, and contemporary

I’ve got some exciting reading planned for November, but I’m only setting myself a gentle TBR. (By gentle, I mean not set in stone.) I’ve been finding more and more recently that I want to mood read, so I’m going to give myself the chance to do that this month. Below are some of books… Continue reading November 2019 TBR // A mix of sci-fi, fantasy, and contemporary

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’
