    BLOGIFUL DAY 3: Photography Tips

    Photography Tips | What If You Don’t Prefer Graphics?   Who said you had to have graphics to have a cute blog? While my lovely co-host Kat has a super cute and beautiful blog with the most adorable graphics (don’t forget to check out her BLOGIFUL posts right >>HERE<<), I, on the other hand, have preferred to use mostly photos for my imagery. Personally, I think it works great and it works for me. It keeps things interesting and not as completely uniform or synonymous and I also like that I can incorporate my bookstagram photos into my blog too. If you would prefer to use photography rather than graphics,…

    Very Belated 2018 Wrap Up & 2019 Goals

    Very Belated 2018 Wrap Up & 2019 Goals   Well, this is a bit late. I have most definitely been procrastinating this for a long time but hey, I got around to it right?! So 2018 was one hell of a year. I started this blog! I got my current job in my industry, I met and even interviewed a few authors, started my very own unique BLOG MEME, became one of the The Nerd Daily contributors (yes I’ve been slacking but more content will be out soon!), moved houses not once but twice, survived my second year of university and found myself a SO during one of the toughest…

    A Special Announcement | BLOG EVENT

    A Special Announcement   If you people didn’t already know, I’m kind of a communication design student – if you don’t know what that is, it’s basically a fancy way of saying Graphic Design. The design of this blog specifically was originally a massive project for a unit I was studying for my degree, which I then implemented on WordPress for my own evil means 😀 (sidenote: I’ve actually been meaning to redesign my header banner cause I’m getting a little sick of it but let me know what you think) ANYWAY. My good friend Kat from Novels & Waffles  (who’s super amazing at doing the cutest graphics with stuff from…

    February TBR

    Hey hey hey! Can you believe it’s already February? this year is already flying past. Going from last year, I’ve decided to seriously push down my ambition a bit and have more flexible TBRs. So here are the books I hope to read this month (most being wonderful ARCs).   A Curse So Dark & Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer (currently reading this already and it’s amazing!) What Momma Left Me by Renée Watson – although I didn’t really enjoy one of her previous books, I’m keen to give this one a go! Such a short read I’m bound to fly through). Enchantée by Gita Trelease – I’m having the pleasure…

    January Wrap-Up

    Holy cow. A WHOLE MONTH HAS PASSED IN 2019. It has gone by so fast and I’m so behind on the blog posts I wanted up but let’s remember that whole “no pressure” thing we should all be encouraging each other with. The posts are coming. I swear it haha, I’ve got a few to do with my slightly belated 2018 wrap up, and my goals, anticipated releases and more for 2019 in the works. It just happens that they’ll go up in February. That’s fine (she says while her brain slowly melts). I happen to have done pretty well in terms of my reading in January considering that I…

    Winter Biannual Bibliothon Wrap-Up & Currently Reading

    I had the honour of being a blog host for the Winter Biannual Bibliothon this year and for once, I did not put a whole lot of pressure on myself to read a LOT of books. I had a small tbr, which I changed pretty quickly just according to my mood and what I wanted to read and I ended up doing pretty well. To all the wonderful bloggers who entered my blog challenge, look out for the official Biannual Bibliothon Instagram where I’ll announce the winner this weekend! I’m so excited, there were so many lovely entries. So my initial TBR for the winter Biannual Bibliothon was: Vicious by…

    Where Have I Been?? // January & Winter Biannual Bibliothon TBR

    Heylo, it’s been a while! I have been a little off the grid the last month, since the beginning of December to be specific and it was one hell of a way to end 2018. Not sure if I missed too much, but I know that I did miss reading and blogging a lot. I, unfortunately, was going through a very rough time. My mental health was not good, my environment was not good and I had to move houses again, so it made it very hard for me to read and blog and take photos so that’s why I have been missing for so long. I’m happy to say that…

    Tome Topple Readathon, November & Spring Wrap-Up

    I disappeared for a while. I know, I’m sorry but the end of this month is the end. The end of the blog and reading slump tyranny. To be fair – I wasn’t actually slumping. I had things going on in my personal life and it happens, life happens, s#!t happens. So here is my sad yet still ok wrap up. November Wrap-Up Here’s the tally of how many books I read:   Books read: 7  Total Pages Read: 2,585   Books that I read:   The Boneless Mercies by April Tucholke ★★★★☆(4/5) | REVIEW  Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake ★★★★☆(4.5/5) | REVIEW TO COME (1/12/18) Life on the Lease by Victoria Schade…
