    September Wrap Up & October TBR

    I don’t know whether it’s this pandemic and the immense uncertainty in the air, or just the fact that I’ve been indoors for perhaps far too long of a time – but time has been flying by and yet not. It is a very screwed up construct right now and holy macaroni – It’s OCTOBER. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t using reading as a distraction as well as a hobby because I have. September was again, another successful reading month. I beat my personal page goal and I just feel proud of myself for enjoying what I’m reading. I didn’t DNF a single book and I thoroughly…

    October Plan With Me | Bookish Bullet Journal

    October is upon us! And I was super indecisive about this month’s theme so it took me forever to finally decide on one! Everybody seems to be doing spooky or autumn themes for October but it’s…spring in Australia. In September I did a cosy spring theme and this month, I considered a spooky one but I don’t really celebrate Halloween much so I thought I’d go a very colourful spring theme. For this month, I was inspired by Sydney Ann Journals and Amanda Rach Lee to do a bit of a soft, colourful internet theme. I thought it was super cute to include a little ‘september.exe has stopped responding’ to…

    Author Interview: Cinderella Is Dead’s Kalynn Bayron

    Author Interview: These Violent Delights’ Chloe Gong [Excerpt]

    Something I tried not to advertise too much was that I got an early eARC copy of These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong and I loved it! It was such a great read in August, my review will be up sometime next month in anticipation for its publishing — and I also had the chance to interview Chloe Gong about it, thanks to The Nerd Daily! To spread some of the love, I thought I’d include another excerpt of the interview here for you guys to read – I loved all her answers and…she’s kind of iconic (her twitter and tik toks are blessed). In case you guys didn’t know,…

    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…

    Book Vs Adaptation: Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland

    In case you missed it, a few weeks ago, I reviewed the Krystal Sutherland’s debut novel Our Chemical Hearts (which I absolutely loved – find my review HERE.) I received a copy in anticipation for the book-to-movie adaptation so I’m keen to let you guys know my thoughts and whether the film lived up to the book! For reference, the movie came out on the 21st of August on Amazon Prime and I watched last weekend so I’ve had some time to mull over my thoughts and look over the short notes I took while watching the film. So let’s get onto Book Vs Adaptation. First Impressions: Casting & Introduction…

    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…
