    Booktube Babble: An Interview with Yasmin from yasminthereader

    Today, I’m bringing you a very exciting interview with Yasmin from yasminthereader. I’ve been a fan of Yasmin for a long time now; she’s a booktuber who is based in the same city as me (Melbourne) and I have been LOVING all her recent content. NOTE: Yasmin is also currently hosting a read-along of the A Darker Shade of Magic Trilogy by V.E Schwab which begins this month. The first book, A Darker Shade of Magic, is the book for the month of August (I am going to try my hardest to squeeze it in my reading this month). She is co-hosting it with Sabine’s Book Nook, with a liveshow…

    Book Vs Adaptation: Netflix’s Cursed

    Considering the fact that I rated this book 4 stars (you can find my review here), you’d think I’d have high expectations. I don’t really think I did, but I also didn’t know exactly what I was getting into when I began watching the Netflix adaptation of Cursed. Sure, the trailer looked amazing but trailers can be very deceiving. In case you didn’t know, Cursed is the tv show adaptation of the book of the same name. It is an Arthurian Legend retelling about Nimue, aka the Lady of the Lake, and her journey after acquiring the Sword of Power (traditionally known as Excalibur but in this story, called Devil’s…

    August Plan With Me | Bookish Bullet Journal

    It is with great pleasure that I present, my August spreads for my bullet journal. It was so fun creating this last night, I got super into it and I’m really proud of how it turned out. I went on a little shopping spree on Etsy a few weeks ago and the first things to arrive were the items I got from K.C. Journal. I got some washi tape in various muted colours and a pack of gorgeous low opacity stickers with a cool purple and blue theme (the Nature pack which you can find here). Since this order came first, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to use…

    July Wrap Up & August TBR

    And with that, July ended. Wow, this month has flown by. I thought that time would be slowing as most of us are stuck inside. I have been working from home, studying from home and doing my hobbies from home with occasional walks outside to grab a coffee down the road and buying my groceries once a week. It’s been weird. Work was super busy and I was feeling a bit stressed that I ended up taking a couple of days off, but I somehow managed to read way more than I have in any other month so far this year and that’s kind of amazing. When I haven’t been…

    Happy Birthday to Me! Winter Wonderland Book Tag

    Today, I am 22. Which is almost a little surreal but I stopped getting excited about birthdays a while ago. Growing up means my birthday becomes so much less significant but this year, I’m trying to embrace the positive. To celebrate all the good that has come in my life so far. I was blessed with an early birthday present that came from my SO, as a beautiful reading chair! We had a small shopping spree and decked it out with a new throw, a new cushion to chill with my existing Charli Bowater ACOTAR cushion and even a little table to pop down my tea during reading sessions. I…

    Did June just fly past for anybody else? I can’t believe it’s already July. I’ve been feeling so great the last couple of weeks, super productive and enjoying blogging again obviously!

    Plan With Me | New Bookish Bullet Journal & July 2020 Spreads!

    I can’t believe it’s nearly July ~ the year has gone by so fast but I’ve also been looking forward to this because at the end of May, as I started planning out my June spreads, I realised that I only have enough pages for June and not much else. Somehow my cute little B6 bullet journal perfectly fit 6 months of journalling within! It was a bit tricky to acquire – I had to save money because Archer & Olive bujos cost like 2 hardbacks in Australia, I generally don’t have much spending money, the stock for the journal at the store I shop at (Washigang, they are lovely!)…

    Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

    I got a little bored of doing my little Golden book awards and thought I’d switch things up this year by doing the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag instead! I cannot believe that it’s already the middle of the year. My birthday is next week so despite the current horrible happenings in the world, there is something to look forward to. This tag was originally created by Chami, who is super lovely by the way, and I wasn’t tagged by anybody that I know. Speaking of tags, in case you didn’t notice, my blog looks a little different! I finally found a similar theme that doesn’t have as many issues…

    May Wrap-Up & June TBR | Bullet Journal Snippet

    May seriously flew by so quickly. I feel really proud of myself for this month because I was really enjoying reading and it was fun! I haven’t felt this sincere joy for reading for pleasure in a while and I think it’s a good sign that my productivity and inspiration is back. I even did an instagram photoshoot for the first time in ages! Go me 🙂 Quick Disclaimer/Announcement Unfortunately, at the moment, these are still grim times for the world. My heart goes out to everyone in the POC community, particularly the Indigenous Australians and black people of the world who have had to deal with so much injustice…

    The Spring (Autumn?) Cleaning Book Tag

    Usually, I’m so lazy when it comes to Book Tags but this time I thought, why not? I’m feeling like doing some blogging for myself and I’ve been loving reading even more than usual the last couple of weeks. Thank you, Jenna, for tagging me in this one! So, because I live in Australia, it’s actually coming into Winter soon. It is Autumn, not Spring but because I do love Spring, let’s see what I can bring to the table with this tag.
