    SPRING TBR – Trying Something New

    It has come to my attention that due to annoying circumstances like moving house and assignment deadlines etc, that my extremely ambitious TBRs are becoming a problem for my reading habits. It’s just never working out as I’ve planned and it’s always a little disappointing. SO, I’ve decided to try something new and do a tbr for this season! A SPRING TBR. It is basically a TBR for the next two months since summer officially starts on the 1st of December in Australia so it’s plenty of time for me to read as much as I can while I’m on my semester break. I also thought it would be a…

    September Wrap-Up

    September was, unfortunately, a month filled with disappointment. I was off on such a good start. I was smashing books left and right in the first two weeks…but then…I moved house. Moving house has been so time-consuming and exhausting that finding time to read was super hard. Not only because I was too tired to read but also the probable scrutiny from my parents if they saw me doing it that I was constantly paranoid about (“what are you doing? why shouldn’t you be helping to pack/unpack?”). They probably wouldn’t say that…but I’m never sure. I tried my best, I really did. This reading month wasn’t at all horrible per se, I am…

    Meet the Blogger: Q&A

    So about a week ago I asked the lovely people on Instagram and Twitter to ask me some questions for a Q&A. It’s another way you guys can learn a little bit more about me and likewise for you, the amazing readers. I was almost crying this morning when I found out I had reached 50 followers on this blog. Thank you all so much <3 It means a lot to me. So, here are the questions: 1. What Motivates You and Why? I honestly don’t know how to answer this question haha UM…I guess I do strive for success in general – I have this innate drive to always try…

    September TBR

    It is finally time, to once again organise a TBR for the coming month. I am indubitably excited and I’ve actually tried to cut down on the ambition a little because it was getting a little over the top. Since I read 15 books in August, I thought it was fair to cap my TBR at 15 (not including my current read). The first few books are books I, unfortunately, didn’t get to reading in August but I do want to read in September, if I’ve already talked about them in my August TBR, I won’t be describing much about them. Here is my TBR for September:      …

    August Wrap-Up

    Hello fellow bookworms, so it’s been a little while! I, unfortunately, got hit by the worst bookish disease anyone can face – the dreaded book slump. I wholeheartedly blame it on my absolute binge over the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy because after that bookish event and my consecutive multiples watching sessions of the movie adaptation, I just wasn’t motivated to read… I read through the blurbs of heaps of books and couldn’t be bothered, so I ended up rereading a favourite and getting into an old school paranormal trash novel to get me out of it. I am currently book slump free…for now. Funnily enough, thanks…

    Book Buying on A Budget

    So many beautiful books, so little money. Here are some saving and book buying tips bound to save you some dosh. Let’s all be honest. Books are expensive. It makes sense that they’re expensive since printing them costs resources and time that we must pay for, but we must also afford. As a student, getting the best bang for my buck with book buying is a must. I’m lucky in that I have a part-time job and have been working quite a lot over the last year and a half, hence my dramatic increase in book buying since I acquired said job. After my intense binge and my first year of university,…

    BOOK TAG: The Ultimate Book Tag

    So I read this super cute post today from Bookmark Your Thoughts and I had to do it asap 😀 This will be a little shorter though because I’ve had one hell of a weekend cramming assignments for uni and have hardly done any reading. I want to read. Badly (if only responsibilities would let me). Let’s get into it!   Do You Get Sick While Reading in the Car?   It is the weakness I am most ashamed of. I can read on the train but not in the car. Nausea kills.   Which Author’s Writing is Completely Unique to You and Why?   Hmm…I’ll say Maggie Stiefvater is on a whole other level that…

    Booktubeathon 2018 Wrap-Up

    Hey Guys! The Booktubeathon is basically over for me now, and I’m happy and proud yet a little sad with how I went. Let’s check out how many books I read. I read a total of 4 out of 7 books in my TBR including: I am Number 4 by Pittacus Lore Autoboyography by Christina Lauren Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray Total Page Count: 1,495 pages I’m personally a bit disappointed because I started off so well, reading the first two books in two days, and almost caught up by finishing the last two books on Friday. Unfortunately, I had to priorities…

    Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

    Here’s another fun tag! I know it’s a little late and belated since it’s August, but oh well! I feel like I freak out a lot but I also don’t…I guess I’m dramatic on the inside. I’m an ambivert so it’s a 50/50 depending on my mood honestly. Anyway. The first quarter of the year I was in the biggest book slump ever. I did not read a lot, and I was mentally and physically failing, then I managed to get back on the bandwagon and have since then been reading better than ever. Let’s see how my reading has gone the last 6 months or so through my stats and…
