    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,…

    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.

    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…

    November and December 2020 wrap-up

    October 2020 book haul

    Good morning bookworms!! It’s time for the October 2020 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.
