    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

    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

    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!…

    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.

    Tome Topple Readathon Update | The Halfway Mark

    Hi 😀   I am halfway through the Tome Topple Readathon and boy, I am failing. Remember how I had like…5 books on my tbr? I’m only halfway through the first book The Unexpected Everything. I’m pretty disappointed but I’ve had some personal circumstances and work that kind of seriously impeded on my reading and blogging (I’m sorry for being absent, I’m half hating it cause I want to be publishing the reviews I’ve half written but also half loving it cause who doesn’t love a bit of a social media detox :P). It’s not over yet! I’ve got one more week to hopefully finish one more book 🙂 This…

    3 Tomes I Own & Want to Read | Let the Tome Topple Readathon Begin!

    The Tome Topple Readathon begins tonight! …and I have failed my goal to read certain books before this deadline. Why didn’t I see this coming? xD I have put Nevermoor on hold and I’m trying to get through Clockwork Angel asap, but never fear! I am starting the lovely readathon with the gorgeous contemporary by Morgan Matson – The Unexpected Everything. ANYWAY – to celebrate the start of the readathon, here are 3 TOMES I OWN and really do want to read, no matter how many times they get pushed down the tbr hole. Do you own a lot of books with over 500 pages though? Let me know in…

    Tome Topple Readathon TBR

    IM DOING A READATHON!!! I’ve wanted to participate in the Tome Topple Readathon for a while now and finally, the time has come. I’m so excited! If you don’t know what the Tome Topple Readathon is about, it’s basically a readathon created by the booktuber Thoughts on Tomes that was created to encourage people to read BIG BOOKS. We can all get very intimidated by massive books and I love that this readathon promotes tomes. The main challenge for this readathon is to read books that are over 500 pages, so all the books on my tbr are over 500 pages! This is the 7th round of this readathon and…
