    Cataloguing My Entire Physical TBR & My Latest Bookish Journal Spreads

    In the last few weeks as my reading has been amping up and I’ve been more motivated to read than ever before – I was really struggling on choosing books to read because I wanted to read them all. It also occurred to me that my new goal for my reading is to read more of my physical unread books (so that I can buy more books). It’s not entirely my goal to read every single unread book I own (what’s the fun in that) but I’d personally be happy and feel comfortable buying more books if I only had about 20 books on my physical tbr. Recently, my large…

    Author Interview: Our Chemical Hearts’ Krystal Sutherland [Excerpt]

    So I recently read Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland and loved it, reviewed it then watched the movie adaptation which left me wanting more. I was also lucky enough to get to interview Krystal Sutherland about the book and the process of adapting it for the screen through The Nerd Daily, so I thought I would share a short excerpt here for you to read if you’re interested. You can read the full author interview linked down below! Today, we bring you an exciting author interview with Krystal Sutherland! She captured our hearts in her debut novel Our Chemical Hearts, and it was exciting to hear that it was…

    August Wrap Up & September TBR

    August was such a huge month for me! Not just because I was stuck inside in Stage 4 lockdown (panicked peace signs everywhereee), but also because I read so much! I was smashing books left and right and completed my first successful readathons in a LONG time. I haven’t felt so inspired to read in so long and I’ve been super motivated to blog heaps too, so look out for more posts this month. Oh, and before I forget, I managed to smash my Goodreads challenge of 50 this month which was AMAZING. I’m hella proud of myself. This month, I participated in the Tome Topple readathon, where I read…

    September Plan With Me | Bookish Bullet Journal

    And just like that, August has flown past ~ although we still have a small measly week left; I managed to do my bullet journal September setup really early! I feel like I’ve usually scrambled on the last few days of the month to do my journal spreads but last night I was super inspired, and feeling a bit crabby – thus, my journaling began. I’m pretty proud to say that this month’s spread has got to be my new favorite so far. It was partly inspired by a haul of stickers I got from an Etsy/Bookstagram store called Pages & Constellations. They have the cutest and coziest stickers, and…

    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…
