    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…

    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…

    2019 Wrap-Up, #YARC2019 Results & 2020 Goals

    Happy New Year! 2019 is over, and what a wrap-up I’ve got in store for you. There is so much to talk about because so much happened this year. I graduated from university and somehow managed to read 55 books, on and off keep blogging and do so much more – so here is my 2019 wrap-up. My Reading in 2019 It was definitely hard to keep myself reading this year. I was struggling with mental health and really didn’t feel like it much for like 80% of the year. The fact that I achieved my goal of 50 books is kind of amazing to me and I’m so proud…

    Spring Wrap-Up | My Holiday in Korea & Finishing Uni

    Truffles is back! It has been an action-packed couple of months this spring in Australia. I finally finished my last semester of university and went on an amazing holiday to Seoul, South Korea. My trip was amazing. I loved it. It ended up being a huge workout because we went shopping and sightseeing, struggling with practising our choppy Korean with locals, walking so much that my feet were bruised by halfway through (tad painful but worth it). I’m not sure whether I’ll upload photos from my trip on my blog but you can find some that I did post up during the trip on my personal Instagram (@trufflelives). More will…

    August Wrap-Up & Sequel September TBR

    Hello All ~~ August was a pretty quiet month on the blog cause work, university and the physical embodiment of stress have been slightly ruining my life. Although I read a lot, I was not productive in actually writing my thoughts down or doing anything at all that society even remotely deems necessary for me to succeed. *queue exit stage left here*. Anyway, here’s my wrap-up: What I Read in August   Total Books: 9 (super proud of myself tho daaamn) Total Pages: 2,831   Heartstopper Vol 1 by Alice Oseman ★★★★☆(3.75/5) | MINI REVIEW The Umbrella Academy Vol 1: The Apocalypse Suite by Gerard Way ★★★★☆(4/5) | MINI REVIEW…

    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…

    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,…
