    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…

    Underrated & Unsolicited: Exciting YA Releases I Received & Want To Read Soon

    Any blogger can relate to the moment when you receive your first ARC and/or unsolicited book from a publisher. It’s a beautiful moment full of pride and a sense of accomplishment that you’re blessed enough to get a book…FOR FREE. The cons of that of course is that…they sometimes keep coming, unsolicited – without being requested, and a huge pressure begins to grow because there are already SO many books you want to get to but these JUST SHOWED UP. I remember feeling so happy yet so goddamn guilty because I wasn’t getting around to reading these beautiful books – that definitely sounded interesting but just weren’t what I was…

    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…

    May Wrap-Up & June TBR | Bullet Journal Snippet

    May seriously flew by so quickly. I feel really proud of myself for this month because I was really enjoying reading and it was fun! I haven’t felt this sincere joy for reading for pleasure in a while and I think it’s a good sign that my productivity and inspiration is back. I even did an instagram photoshoot for the first time in ages! Go me 🙂 Quick Disclaimer/Announcement Unfortunately, at the moment, these are still grim times for the world. My heart goes out to everyone in the POC community, particularly the Indigenous Australians and black people of the world who have had to deal with so much injustice…

    January Wrap-Up, February TBR & Bullet Journal | Bujo Snippets

    Oh my goodness, January is already gone! 2020 is already flying past and this month I am super proud of how much I read and the new spreads I created in my bullet journal. Since you guys liked seeing my spreads so much last time, I figured I’d regularly post these Bujo snippets to show my wrap-up, TBR and setup for the month. Speaking of my bullet journal… Like I mentioned last time, I own an Archer & Olive B6 dotted bullet journal, and my journey in bullet journalling basically took a turn because when I went on my holiday to Korea, I found this gorgeous planner. A planner so…

    My January TBR | Bujo Snippet

    What better way to show you guys my TBR than to give a quick snapshot of my bookish bullet journal? In case you missed it on my Instagram story earlier this week, here it is 🙂 I’m so excited to get into these books after I finish my current reads. At the moment, I’m finishing up Ninth House and I’ve been listening to the audiobook of The Devouring Gray which is so great so far. What are you reading and what’s on your TBR for this month? Do you guys like these TBR bullet journal snippets or a traditional TBR post? Let me know,

    My December TBR

    I cannot believe that it’s already December! I’m writing this the day after I have finally reached my Goodreads reading challenge – which is an amazing feat considering the crazy year I’ve had. I was trying so hard to finish Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston before the clock ticked over to from November to December but alas, I finished it yesterday on the 3rd of December. I’m honestly just glad that I finished it, I’ll be honest in that I wasn’t really enjoying it and only forced myself to keep going because a friend of mine said I’d warm up to it. Despite all that, it is…

    1st Blogiversary, Life Update & Reading Rush FAILURE | June/July Wrap-Up

    HELLO! I hope all of you have been well. I haven’t been posting again for a couple of weeks because of a few things, but first to start with a bang – HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY TO ME!!! I cannot believe that I’ve been blogging for a whole year already – like it’s crazy! To be fair, I’ve taken a lot of breaks but at the end of the day and what’s also my goal and hope for this blog is that while consistency and routine are nice, I want to blog and review books and open discussions when I want to and most importantly when I can. Health should always come…

    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…
