    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…

    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…

    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…

    6 Month Wrap-Up | My April to September Reads

    Okay. It has been a hot minute since I did a wrap-up, and honestly, it’s because I haven’t been reading much! Or blogging much (but that’s okay). The ongoing pandemic, some big life changes, and the usual obstacles have been a wild ride but I’m proud to be back on the reading wagon and just the fact I technically have been reading the last few months (except for August). I figured, why not do a small post to write out what I’ve read in the last 6 months, get myself back on track and just celebrate the lovely books I read! Let’s get into it! April The Mask Falling by…

    Are you a book snob? The Book Snob Book Tag

    Hey there! Today, I’m bringing you a fun book tag that I found inspiration from another blogger, Esther from Cozy with Books! I saw this tag and really liked the questions so I thought I’d try it myself. Tia and all the books, I believe is the original creator of this tag. Without further ado, let’s see if I’m a book snob or not! Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before watching the film/ TV show? I feel like I definitely used to that mindset when I was younger but quickly realised how much pressure I felt to do read the book before watching the film/tv show. Now,…

    Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag | 2021 Edition

    So…despite not posting on this blog for a while – I noticed my stats going off on last year’s Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag (shocked pikachu face) and damn, I’m so grateful! But also, this is the perfect time to do the tag again! I haven’t been reading as much this year but I’m honestly cruising along guilt-free and embracing my reading motivation as it comes. Now that I’ve got some energy and motivation to blog, let’s talk about my reading so far this year and what I’ve loved and not-so-loved. I’m super excited for more blog content to come – so look out for that too! This tag was…

I’ve included the first few questions from my Q&A and if you love her answers as much as I did, you can check out the last few questions in the link below.

    Finally Fall Book Tag // Hello Autumn!

    So, basically 6 months ago or so, the amazing Jenna from Bookmark Your Thoughts tagged me in this Finally Fall Book Tag ~ unfortunately, being on the other side of the hemisphere, it was actually Spring for me but now – April has begun and IT’S FINALLY AUTUMN! I’ve waited this long to do this tag and I am committed! The original tag was from a booktube video and has since been taken down so I cannot credit someone for this. Let’s do this! In fall, the air is crisp and clear // Name a book with a vivid setting. I don’t know about you but City of Brass was…

    March Wrap Up & April TBR

    March went by so fast! March is also the month where I kind of took a mini-hiatus – particularly on Instagram. I started a new job and I didn’t really read a whole lot but I’m still proud of how many books I managed to read considering I was moving house and acclimating a new cat in our family. It’s been a really busy month haha let’s get into what I read! What I Read In March I only DNFed one book this month, an unsolicited adult fiction book that just wasn’t my thing, unfortunately. Otherwise, I think I had a really great month. I really enjoyed most of what…

    The Bookish Prediction Tag

    It is such a nice day in the first week of Autumn in Melbourne, and today I thought I’d bring you a book tag! I don’t do these very often, although I really should. I wasn’t tagged to do this one in particular but I did read Chana & Malka’s answers to the tag on their blog, Paper Procrastinators, and thought, let’s do this one. Why not? Originally created by Book Princess Reviews, this tag is all about making predictions and I really hope my answers turn out to be true! Let’s get into it 🙂 What is your next read? Before I dive back into another big fantasy book…
