    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,…

    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…

    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…

    Very Belated 2018 Wrap Up & 2019 Goals

    Very Belated 2018 Wrap Up & 2019 Goals   Well, this is a bit late. I have most definitely been procrastinating this for a long time but hey, I got around to it right?! So 2018 was one hell of a year. I started this blog! I got my current job in my industry, I met and even interviewed a few authors, started my very own unique BLOG MEME, became one of the The Nerd Daily contributors (yes I’ve been slacking but more content will be out soon!), moved houses not once but twice, survived my second year of university and found myself a SO during one of the toughest…
