    November and December 2020 wrap-up

    October ’20 book haul

    Good morning bookworms!! It’s time for the monthly book haul!! October was slightly out of control, but I’m refusing to take responsibility because I got A LOT of review books last month. Which is great because it means publishers are liking me. But it’s also bad because I now have more review books that I can read for the rest…

    October ’20 TBR

    Good morning bookworms!! So… it’s been a hot minute since I’ve written a TBR, and honestly, sometimes I even wonder why I do it, when it is abundantly clear that I very rarely stick to them!! But there are still a couple of books that I want to read before the end of the year (and some review books that…

    August ’20 wrap-up

    Hello bookworms! So apparently August is over, and I barely even noticed. And it’s now almost halfway through September and I haven’t done my wrap-up (until now), and what even is organisation?!!

    So, you’re looking for a new Harry Potter… magic school!

    Hello bookworms!! Let’s be honest, the absolute shitshow of JK Rowling’s recent(ish) social media outbursts have had a lot of us questioning our support of the Potterverse. A lot of my friends have stopped buying official merch (which gives JK money), taken their HP books off their shelves, or even given them away. Maybe one day we’ll be better able…

    August ’20 TBR

    Good morning bookworms! You know why Joanne (this is how I’m probs going to refer to her from now on) being a total transphobic troll is the worst thing ever? Because she has RUINED EVERYTHING. We can’t feel joy about the series any more, (and I will forever have an incomplete set of the illustrated versions). But more importantly, she…
