    June 2022 book haul

    Hello friends!! Welcome to the June 2022 book haul!! A post where I talk about all the books that I bought and received in the previous month. June was… surprisingly low in book count ― which is awesome. Because I also didn’t read that many books. I started the month off strong, and then, well, life happened ― as it…

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the May 2022 book haul!! A monthly post where I talk about all the books that I hauled in the previous month.

    June 2022 TBR

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the June 2022 TBR post!! A monthly post where I talk about all the books that I plan to read in the next month. Well, the year was going pretty well until I tried to read The Atlas Six, and then I fell off the reading wagon… FAIL. And then… well, I guess I just kind of…

    April 2022 book haul

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the April 2022 book haul!! A monthly post where I talk about all the books that I hauled in the previous month.

    May 2022 TBR

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the May 2022 TBR post!! A monthly post where I talk about all the books that I plan to read in the next month. I’m actually quite impressed with myself at the moment.

    All the books Isaac reads in Heartstopper

    Hello bookworms!! I am addicted to the tv adaptation that is Heartstopper. In the week (and two days) since it has been out, I’ve watched it three times. While I have been on holidays with very little internet. So today I wanted to share all the books that Isaac reads in Heartstopper. If you haven’t seen the show yet, you…

    January 2022 wrap up

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the January 2o22 wrap up. Yes, January. Which ended 3 months ago. In fact, you might have noticed that I haven’t done a single wrap up so far this year. (Then again, you might not have.) You see, to go with this new year of blogging, I’ve been thinking about how I want my wrap ups…

    Books I’m scared to reread

    Hello bookworms!! Today I want to talk about books that I absolutely adored, but I’m scared to reread them. I know you know the books I’m talking about. You probably read them YEARS ago. And you loved them with your whole heart. But, you also acknowledge that you’ve grown as a reader. And, they likely haven’t aged well. You might…

    April 2022 TBR

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the April 2022 TBR post!! A monthly post where I talk about all the books that I plan to read in the next month. You may have noticed that I didn’t write a TBR for March. That’s because all the books I thought I would read in February (but didn’t) then got bumped to March. And…

    February 2022 book haul

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the February 2022 book haul!! A monthly post where I talk about all the books that I hauled in the previous month. This year, we’re doing things slightly differently. And by ‘differently’ I mean there won’t be any shaming for buying excess than my haul goals. And I did decide to reformat the post… But also,…

    The reality cooking show trope

    Hello bookworms!! Today I wanted to talk about an oddly specific trope I’ve been reading lately. Namely, the reality cooking show trope.   Maybe ‘tropes’ is the wrong word, but it feels like I’ve been adding new favourites to a list that already includes “enemies to lovers” and “there’s only one bed”. So, tropes is the word we’re going with.…

    February 2022 TBR

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the February 2022 TBR post. You know… sticking to my January TBR wasn’t quite as awful as I thought it would be. I did have to switch it up a bit when I added in the Pondathon, and I definitely won’t hit ONE of the books, but I think I will squeeze my second last one…

    12 in 12 and Pondathon II

    Hello bookworms!! Today I’m going to be talking about my 12 in 12 challenge and Pondathon II.    Yes, I know. A week ago I was writing about how I wasn’t going to be doing any more challenges this year except for Goodreads and Beat the Backlist… but I forgot that I had already signed up for 12 in 12…

    2022 challenge sign up

    Good morning bookworms!! Welcome to the 2022 challenge sign up post!! You know, the one where I normally sign up for too many things to achieve and have forgotten all about them by the time we hit April. But this year, I’m planning something different. Because I’ve actually been planning it, and thinking about it, for a while now. Instead…

    The Wanderlust Book tag

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to today’s post: the The Wanderlust Book tag. Yes, I am still attempting to chase down and tick off my 50+* outstanding tags. Advice: don’t ever let it get this bad!! Almost exactly two years ago (I am 14 days short), our favourite Discworld Librarian, The Orangutan Librarian, tagged me to do The Wanderlust Book tag. And…

    December 2021 wrap up

    Hello bookworms!! It’s time for the December 2021 wrap up. It is finally 2022!! I mean, it’s been 2022 for like a week now, but YAY!! This is (the first of my many) final wrap ups of 2021. THANK GOODNESS. I mean, I’m not convinced that 2022 will be any better than 2021, but I can still be hopeful for…

    December 2021 book haul

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the December 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. In case you aren’t aware (which, fair, because I never made an announcement post, although I do mention this every month — and I WILL be…

    January 2022 TBR

    Hello bookworms!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Welcome to the January 2022 TBR post. Yes, I know what you’re thinking (maybe). I am terrible at sticking to TBRs. But, the aim for 2022 is to turn over a new leaf and try sticking to them. Because the very few times I actually tried sticking it, it… wasn’t awful? So, I’m trying. However,…

    November 2021 wrap up

    Hello bookworms!! It’s time for the November 2021 wrap up. I don’t know about you, but when I started writing this back in early December, I felt stuck in this weird “How the hell is it almost 2022? I’m still writing 2020 on things”, but also being “Geez, can we just skip to 2022 already because I am so done…
