    July-August 2021 wrap up

    Hello bookworms!! It’s time for the July-August 2021 wrap up. Because we are finally catching up on things!! YAAAAAAY!! (Oh, I seriously hope that sentence doesn’t come back to jinx me…) Unfortunately I actually spoiled August’s big news in the May-June wrap up when I told you that I got a new job… Which is unfortunate since I also stopped…

    Books inspired by Slavic lore

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to a post that I have been wanting to write for a very long time: Books inspired by Slavic lore. I know this may seem like a super random topic, but hear me out. A few weeks ago we did a Top 5 Tuesday topic called top 5 retellings. As you may know, retellings are one of…

    This or that tag

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to me attempting to catch up on the 51 tags I haven’t done!! With today’s post: the this or that tag. I was tagged to do this THREE times in 2020. Which, scarily, is not the largest number of times I’ve been tagged to do a post. Oops?! So, huge thanks to the following amazing bloggers for…

    September 2021 book haul

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the September 2021 book haul!! A monthly post where I usually shame myself for never achieving my goal of buying less than I read, or sticking to my buying goal. Or at least I did in July and August anyway. I was clearly feeling so confident and pleased with my last two hauls that I decided to…

    2021 mid-year freak out

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the (very late) 2021 mid-year freak out tag. I do normally post this in early July (I’m a stickler that July 2 is the midpoint of the calendar year), but July got away from me, and then so did August, and September. So, you’re getting it in in October. But rest assured, I haven’t added anything…

    May-June 2021 wrap up

    Hello bookworms!! It’s time for the May-June 2021 wrap up. Hahahaha, honestly, I would not even be surprised if you think I’ve incorrectly titled this post. Because it is many, many months late. After May’s epic organisation (which lasted for a whole two weeks), we’re back to being super late with everything… And I do mean SUPER late. To be…

    15 books that I’m currently reading

    Hello bookworms!! Today I want to address the chaos that is my life, and the 15 books that I’m currently reading. PLEASE SEND HELP. I mean, who even knows how these things happen. I certainly don’t, and I’m living it. But more than that, I want to look at each of the books I’m “currently reading” and decide once and…

    August 2021 book haul

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the August 2021 book haul!! A monthly post where I usually shame myself for never achieving my goal of buying less than I read, or sticking to my buying goal.

    July 2021 book haul

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the July 2021 book haul!! A monthly post where I shame myself for never achieving my goal of buying less than I read, or sticking to my buying goal. Except in July, which is both, unprecedented and unexpected. In fact, this is going to be a pretty sad and sorry list… June was my birthday month,…

    August 2021 TBR and the MS Readathon

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the August 2021 TBR post, where I will also be talking about the MS Readathon. So… I admit that I get pretty shady when it comes to TBRs. The last one I posted was for Middle-Grade March. And it was so bad that I didn’t read a single thing ON the TBR. But not just that.…

    June 2021 book haul

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the June 2021 book haul!! A monthly post where I shame myself for never achieving my goal of buying less than I read… June is my birthday month, so I always feel that it and December kind of get an exemption from my goal… Unless of course the number of books is ridiculous. And this year…

    May 2021 book haul

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the May 2021 book haul!! A monthly post where I shame myself for never achieving my goal of buying less than I read… EXCEPT!! I actually achieved my book haul goal this month?!! Which… is the first time this year!! I’m actually really excited about this!! In case you aren’t aware (which, fair, because I still…

    April 2021 wrap up

    Hello bookworms!! It’s time for the April 2021 wrap up. Which was only like a week ago. Who is this person who has already posted FOUR times this month?! Apparently we met organisation, and are now friends. Who knew?! Don’t get me wrong, life is still kicking my butt a little. OK, maybe a lot. But I’m trying very hard…

    Let’s Talk Bookish: Why I read Middle Grade books

    Hello bookworms!! Today I’ve jumped on the bandwagon for Let’s Talk Bookish topic: Why I read middle grade books. But really this is just an excuse for me to to scream about why I love middle grade fiction. And also YA. Even though I am a real-live adult. Allegedly. Let’s Talk Bookish is hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books, and…

    April 2021 book haul

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the April 2021 book haul!! A monthly post where I shame myself for never achieving my goal of buying less than I read… Thankfully, April was much better than March was. And by better, I mean that there were far fewer books added to my collection!!

    March 2021 wrap up

    Hello bookworms!! It’s time for the March 2021 wrap up. Which was basically forever ago because April has been a TIME. Is it just me, or is 2021 shaping up to be somehow worse than 2020?? Just like in February, I can’t seem to stay on top of things. Except where I was failing at everything except two things before,…

    March 2021 book haul

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the March 2021 book haul!! A monthly post where I shame myself for never achieving my goal of buying less than I read… This month in particular is going to be… BIG!! Admittedly, March 2020 was far worse than March 2021… Yes, this time last year I was struggling to fit 29 books in my wrap…

    February 2021 wrap-up

    Hello bookworms!! It’s time for the February 2021 wrap-up. AND I’m even doing it earlier than I have been, although it is halfway through March… Despite it only being two weeks ago, I have no idea what happened in February. Is it just me or is this year just one long blur so far?? I just can’t seem to keep…

    February 2021 book haul

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the February 2021 book haul!! A monthly post where I shame myself for never achieving my goal of buying less than I read… (spoiler – March will be no different, it’s the 6th and I’m already over my 5 book limit…) Actually, come to think of it, I still haven’t posted my goals for 2021… But…

    March 2021 TBR

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the March 2021 TBR post. So… it’s been a hot minute since I’ve written a TBR. In fact, I believe the last one I did was in October last year. Mood reading generally gets me good, but I’m going to try and perform a miracle this month. The reason why I’m doing a TBR again this…

    January 2021 wrap-up

    Hello bookworms!! Yes, it’s the last day of February and here I am doing my January 2021 wrap-up… I swear I am trying to stay on top of blogging… it’s just so hard some weeks!! (Months? Years?)

    2020 WRAP UP!!

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the 2020 wrap up!! I can’t believe we’re already in February 2021. I feel like by the time I get to doing to wrap up for this year it’ll be June 2022… BUT, we’re here now and I’m ready and raring to go. Well… maybe not ‘raring’ per se. But I’m ready. I’m also expecting this…

    November and December 2020 wrap-up

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the November AND December 2020 wrap-up. Because I didn’t get organised enough to publish the November one and now it’s two thirds of the way through January and I haven’t even done the full 2020 wrap-up yet. Because what even is being organised in this day and age??? Honestly, I barely even remember what happened last…
