    February Wrap-Up & March TBR

    February Wrap-Up & March TBR   It’s MARCH ALREADY?? The year is flying past and there are still so many books on my TBR to read (perpetually stuck between happy ^_^ and sad T_T cause the TBR is never going down but more stories to read, the better). Feb was not the greatest reading month for me. Despite having a big break from uni this month, I was so unproductive and somehow busy, yet not? I also was very unwell for a little while which sucks so it’s all about playing the catch-up game now. The highlight of February for this blog, however, was the BLOGIFUL blog design event, my…

    February TBR

    Hey hey hey! Can you believe it’s already February? this year is already flying past. Going from last year, I’ve decided to seriously push down my ambition a bit and have more flexible TBRs. So here are the books I hope to read this month (most being wonderful ARCs).   A Curse So Dark & Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer (currently reading this already and it’s amazing!) What Momma Left Me by Renée Watson – although I didn’t really enjoy one of her previous books, I’m keen to give this one a go! Such a short read I’m bound to fly through). Enchantée by Gita Trelease – I’m having the pleasure…

    Where Have I Been?? // January & Winter Biannual Bibliothon TBR

    Heylo, it’s been a while! I have been a little off the grid the last month, since the beginning of December to be specific and it was one hell of a way to end 2018. Not sure if I missed too much, but I know that I did miss reading and blogging a lot. I, unfortunately, was going through a very rough time. My mental health was not good, my environment was not good and I had to move houses again, so it made it very hard for me to read and blog and take photos so that’s why I have been missing for so long. I’m happy to say that…

    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…

    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 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 TBR

    Hello Friends! It is that time of the month where I declare a list of books longer than my height that I’d like to read this month. Okay, not that long but it’s always a big and ambitious tbr that I generally end up reading half or something three quarters of. This month is no different, and although the first two days of the Booktubeathon are in July, I’m counting all my Booktubeathon books for August (see my Booktubeathon tbr HERE). I won’t include the blurb but each cover photo send you directly to its respective Goodreads page. Here the books I’d like to read this month once the readathon…

    My BOOKTUBEATHON TBR

    Hey hey! First off, let me tell you how much I love the annual Booktubeathon. I did it for the first time in 2017 and it was my first time doing any kind of real readathon where I was super dedicated. If you don’t know what Booktubeathon is about, it’s basically a readathon to help encourage more reading. There are 7 challenges and the last challenge is always to read 7 books. So that means trying to read 7 books in 7 days! Crazy, I know. I actually can’t remember if I finished 7 books last year but I know I really enjoyed it. Not just because it was fun…
