    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…

    February Wrap-Up & March TBR

    I can’t believe we’re already 2 months into 2021! February was another slightly slow month for me but I’m getting back up on my feet when it comes to reading and I couldn’t be more excited for what March has in store for me. March is going to be super busy too! Let’s get into what I read ~ What I Read In February I did it! Although I only read 3 books again this month, I reached my goal of finishing the All Souls trilogy – which are thick books! So I’m really proud of myself for that, especially since I’m still in a bit of a slump. I…

    January Wrap-Up & February TBR | T’was A Slow Month

    Well, January was a doozy. It was a hard month, a busy month and a heartbreaking month. I haven’t said much on here but it was really tough reading and being active on socials because we lost our beloved cat and I had to get back to work after the holiday break and life has just been a wild ride. I’ve been trying to get back into a work routine while dealing with grief and motivation hasn’t been easy. I hoped to do so well this month but alas, other plans were in store. This post might seem a bit sad but I am trying to be more optimistic and…

    December & 2020 Wrap-Up, 2021 Goals + January/Summerween TBR

    As I mentioned in my latest life update, the excruciating lockdown Melbourne was in for over 2 months finally ended and I had to let myself relax because socialising was a thing again! Not to mention that the Christmas season is insane when you have a big family. So I didn’t read much in December but I’m overall super proud of myself for my reading this year. Even if blogging took a back-burner sometimes, I don’t feel bad about it either and something 2020 taught me is to let go and enjoy reading and blogging for what they are: hobbies. I’m not going to be taking things too seriously or…

    November Wrap-Up & My TBR For the Rest of 2020

    So, November went by too fast. Work and uni were super busy and Melbourne finally came out of lockdown so my SO and I were able to go out, see friends and get basically all our Christmas shopping done early (yes I’m always early). That meant that I was exhausted and super tired most of the time. I wrote a bit about my life update in my previous post right here if you’re interested. With that, I didn’t read much but that’s okay. It felt like so little because I had gotten used to reading 10-13 books a month in the last 3 months but my total for November was…

    October Wrap-Up | November TBR & Plan With Me

    This month, like every other month this year has flown by. I can’t believe that we’re already in November and I have Christmas presents to worry about! It’s insane. Somehow, my reading this ended up being pretty good even though I struggle through a reading slump for most of it. To get out of my reading slump, I did lots of self care and just took a break from reading then did a small readathon for myself. If you joined me in the readathon on Instagram – thanks! I hope you got lots of reading out of it; I surprisingly did. What I Read In October As I said, it…

    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…

    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…

    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…
