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

Top Ten Tuesday // Favourite snacks to enjoy while reading

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s theme: September 17: Favorite Things to Eat/Drink While Reading I like to… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday // Favourite snacks to enjoy while reading

August 2019 Wrap Up // ARCs, new favourites, and trades

August was a bit of a YALC-comedown month. I was definitely feeling the post-convention lull, but I decided to take part in ARC August to get through some of the books I picked up. And I mostly succeeded. I read four ARCs/advance copies and three previously-published books, making my total number of books for the… Continue reading August 2019 Wrap Up // ARCs, new favourites, and trades

July 2019 Wrap Up // YALC, Indian Lit Readathon, and new vegan food

July is always a great month and this time was no different. The weather was hot, YALC was amazing, and I read some really great books. I read eight books in July, including three audiobooks, two short stories, and a graphic novel. And, aside from The Devouring Gray, which I’ll be finishing in August, I… Continue reading July 2019 Wrap Up // YALC, Indian Lit Readathon, and new vegan food

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

June 2018 Wrap Up // I devoted the entire month to reading queer fiction and now I don’t want to stop

June was, of course, pride month, and I managed to pick myself up a cute little rainbow flag badge from Gay’s The Word, which is now a permanent feature on my summer jacket. I also decided to devote June to reading only LGBTQIAP+ books, since there are so many out there I’ve been wanting to… Continue reading June 2018 Wrap Up // I devoted the entire month to reading queer fiction and now I don’t want to stop

April 2018 Wrap Up (Let’s just pretend I didn’t set myself a TBR, OK)

April was a pretty busy and exciting month for me. I visited my sister abroad, went to London, and spent the day at an agricultural festival. It was an energising few weeks, but I did not stick to my TBR. At all. In fact, I think at this point it would be better if we… Continue reading April 2018 Wrap Up (Let’s just pretend I didn’t set myself a TBR, OK)
