    My 2022 Reading Bullet Journal Spreads

    It’s been a wild journey in 2021 and it pleases me to say that I’m back into bullet journaling after a year’s break! Although it isn’t going to be a full-on, month to month bullet journal like that of my 2020 journal, I’ve decided to go back to bullet journaling to motivate myself and keep track of my reading! It’s really cool to see reading journals get more and more popular, and I noticed that with my busy schedule, how days can figuratively fly by and I have completely forgotten to pick up a book or take some time for myself. I reinvigorated my love for planning, went on a…

    Goodreads Awards Nominated Books I’m Adding to My TBR

    As it happens every year, the Goodreads awards have been announced and I almost didn’t even get a vote because I barely go on Goodreads anymore! I managed to vote in the last 2 rounds and since I didn’t read as much as I did last year, many of the titles were strangers to me. It was a bit sad but it also made me excited to see what books I could get into next year! I watched a few booktubers who went through some of the nominees and found myself really keen to read more Romance like I’ve been wanting to for ages and like I said in my…

    Dial A for Aunties by Jesse Sutanto Book Review

    A recent release from this year, this book jumped out at me at the book store because of its funky pop-art inspired cover and it had an interesting blurb that sounded like a light read I might enjoy so I started reading it – but then put it down at 50 pages for another book. Fast track a month or so, I picked it up again and managed to finish it in like 2 days! Thought I’d write a little review to explain my thoughts. Goodreads Blurb: When Meddelin Chan ends up accidentally killing her blind date, her meddlesome mother calls for her even more meddlesome aunties to help get…

    November Wrap Up & Currently Reading: I’ve Caught the Non-Fiction Bug

    I still can’t believe how fast November went by! Work was extremely busy since it was essentially the big month for online shopping (I work in marketing) so Black Friday, Cyber Monday – every sale that happens for Christmas, took away a lot of my time and energy. I managed to read 2 books this month and I happily reduced my Goodreads goal from 50 to 30 so it was more achievable with my current schedule. November Wrap Up In November, I read the following books: When We Entered That House by Claire L Smith3.5/5 StarsThis is the second novel from one of my best friends IRL and I really…

    10 Positive Affirmations: The Bookworm Edition

    I feel like affirmations have become super popular amongst my friends and online. Almost every day I’ll see or hear someone saying “I’m manifesting” this or that and sharing their positive affirmations about life and themselves. So, I thought it would be a fun post to a bookworm version! Note: this is all in fun and gest, but I hope you enjoy them for what they represent – the unity of shared experiences many bookworms around the world have together. I will not succumb to the pretty cover and buy more books I will not read until 2025. I can finish this book even though Netflix is calling my name.…

    Chit Chat Monday: My October Wrap-Up, November TBR & Reading Goals

    Welcome to another Monday chit chat post! I had planned to do this last week but work and life were so incredibly hectic now that Melbourne is finally out of lockdown and I didn’t have much time to do anything blog or even reading-related. I swapped out reading for TV I found myself watching Buzzfeed Unsolved, Terrace House and the new LoL inspired series Arcane on Netflix to relax because of my crazy schedule in the last week. As a League of Legends player, it was a huge event that took the majority of my Sunday. We watched all 3 episodes that are now currently available and I can confirm…

    The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang Book Review

    If you’ve read my previous reviews of books by Helen Hoang like The Kiss Quotient and The Bride Test, you’ll know that I absolutely love this series. I’m not sure if you could really call it a series but all the books are in the same world and we see previous book characters in sequels and it’s just so wholesome! I love books that do this and I’ve absolutely loved Helen’s writing so far so I was super excited to get my hands on this book. Truth be told, I actually completely forgot about it until the week before the release date but then Amazon took 3 weeks to deliver…

    The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller Book Review

    Apparently, this book has been taking BookTok by storm lately and it has actually been on my shelves for years now so I’m glad that I finally got to reading this! I previously read Circe by Madeline Miller and absolutely loved it (see review here), so I tried not to set my expectations too high even though 99% of others seem to LOVE this book and tell me that they cried while reading it. Did this book live up to the hype? Let’s get onto the review! Goodreads Blurb: Achilles, “the best of all the Greeks,” son of the cruel sea goddess Thetis and the legendary king Peleus, is strong,…

    As Good As Dead by Holly Jackson Book Review (Spoiler-Free)

    I can’t explain how devastated I am that this series is over, and boy, Holly Jackson knew how to end it. This book is the last book in the Good Girl’s Guide to Murder trilogy. Obviously, huge spoilers from the first two books here so please beware and just go read the first two books – they’re amazing! Goodreads Blurb Pip Fitz-Amobi is haunted by the way her last investigation ended. Soon she’ll be leaving for Cambridge University but then another case finds her . . . and this time it’s all about Pip. Pip is used to online death threats, but there’s one that catches her eye, someone who…

    Chit Chat Monday: My Current Read & Current Favourites

    I’ve been really motivated and in the mood for blogging today but didn’t really know what to blog about…so I thought I might to chat about what I’m reading, what my current favourites are and see what you guys are reading! I recently recreated my home office space for work, studying and blogging and it’s really inspired me. I’m in love with it (see picture above) and I can’t wait to be more productive. Let’s get onto the ‘currents’! Current Read: I’m currently in the middle of The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson. I’ve been reading this book for like a month, and I’ve been so slow. I’m not sure…
