    My Breath of the Wildathon TBR

    Another readathon – another challenge! This one, I simply had to join. I have been doing some reading streams with the lovely Little Book Owl, who co-founded the Breath of The Wildathon – AND since I’ve actually been reading so much more (3 books so far this month! and essentially completed the 2 books for the Magical Readathon), I thought ‘why not?’. This readathon is particularly fun as there are perks, there is a special map, there is a Blood Mood card that randomly generates a prompt for you. It’s all very exciting. There are a few teams with different perks and you can learn all about it on the…

    Magical Readathon: Orilium 2021 TBR

    Hello friends! It’s been a while. I took a bit of time off from blogging due to many personal life changes, working a lot, and because I’ve honestly been having lots of fun gaming and streaming over on my Twitch channel. It’s been really great to hang out with friends, play games to wind down after work but as reading is my OG hobby, I’m finally getting back into reading and blogging. I honestly barely read in August and didn’t finish a book. I’m in the middle of one now which will count towards this month’s TBR. I’m still in lockdown in Melbourne and I’m soon starting a new job,…

    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…

    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…

    July: The Readathon Month | The Final Biannual Bibliothon & The Reading Rush TBR

    July: The Readathon Month | The Final Biannual Bibliothon & The Reading Rush TBR I cannot help myself okay. I just love challenges and being ambitious and pushing myself, and even though I’ve told myself – just chill, don’t try to stress yourself by doing readathons – I CANNOT help myself. I will now be attempting to do two readathons this July. Hence, my July TBR will consist of the TBRs for these two lovely readathons. what am I doing to myself The first readathon is the Biannual Bibliothon! I was lucky enough to be one of the bloggers involved in the last round and this time, this is the…

    April/Magical Readathon Wrap-Up & June TBR

    April/Magical Readathon Wrap-Up & June/July TBR WOW am I late to do a wrap for April but in case you missed it, I went on a bit of a hiatus in May because of physical, mental health and just life (mostly uni) being an absolute b!tch, and at halfway through June, I’m back! My uni semester is donezo and I’ve never been more relieved. I also took a hiatus from anything book related online including Instagram and Twitter – I basically disappeared for a while and kinda loved it. I am officially back to blogging and on socials but I doubt I’ll be as active as I used to be,…

    O.W.L.’s Readathon Week 1-2 Update & Tome Topple Round 8 TBR Ah, look at my Wizarding Career prospects going down the drain… I have had a sad and busy week where it’s been a struggle to stay awake nevertheless, read. Uni, work and just commuting in general sucks, plus I did a stupid thing and strained my eyes so I couldn’t do any of the above for a few days (plus mental health kinda took a dive too). I wished I could just sleep all week and stay in bed forever. I did manage to finish 1 BOOK! An audiobook, something I haven’t done in a long time cause I’m…

    O.W.L.’s Magical Readathon 2019 TBR   ~ Right when I was saying to everyone, “oh, I don’t think I’m ready to do a readathon anytime soon.” *enters the YARC2019 and the Magical Readathon 2019* Mmm… That’s right, today I decided, quite randomly, that I’ll give this Readathon a try. I love Harry Potter and I love the idea of taking Wizarding exams so here I go! This readathon starts off with O.W.L.’s, the exam period being between the 1st and the 31st April, then N.E.W.T.’s which is between the 1st and 30th of August. I am determined to become the Wizarding Career I have chosen for myself, and that is…a Potioneer!…
