    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

    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,…

    March Wrap-Up & April TBR

    March Wrap-Up  & April TBR   Well, March went by pretty quickly! It was so busy; I started my university semester (studying writing and editing for the first time eek) and my workload at work almost doubled. Between those two as well as juggling my mental health and design side-projects, it’s been a little unreal. I didn’t read as much as I’d liked and once again I’ve had to put down the two big books I’ve been ‘currently reading’ for months (Eldest & Morning Star) but eventually, I’ll get to finish them 🙂 – probably in May since I’m doing a month-long readathon whoops. I’ve also been doing graphic banners…

    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!…

    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…
