    October 2020 wrap-up

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the October 2020 wrap-up!! Yes, I am posting this 2 days before the end of November, because I have been trash this month. Like more so than usual… what the hell is even happening?! Honestly, I barely even remember what happened last week, let alone a month ago, so be prepared for a wild ride of…

    September ’20 wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms!! Welcome to the September 2020 wrap-up!! September is done, so that’s another month checked off for 2020 in this seemingly endless year. And while I’m not American and don’t live in the US, I can’t help but feel that the worst for this year is not over yet. (Yes, I am talking about the upcoming election. Please…

    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?!! I was behind on blog-hopping, and updating goodreads. And I still AM behind on my spreadsheets, review copies, writing blog posts and book reviews, instagram… life? In saying…

    July ’20 wrap-up

    Hello bookworms! Did I completely forget that July is over and I haven’t done a wrap-up yet? Yes, I did. Along with not doing all the other things I meant to do in July… (like that challenge update… which is still coming…) July… was a month. I do feel a bit like the whole world is going to shit right…

    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…

    June ’20 wrap-up

    Good evening bookworms! Does anyone else feel like this year has simultaneously taken 30 seconds, and 8 years?! I am so tired, but also, where the hell did this year go? How are we already more than halfway through? Thankfully I have a week of holidays coming up. I’m hoping that I can use some of that time to catch…

    July ’20 TBR: Pop Culture Readathon

    Good morning bookworms! So… this is a bit late, but there’s a reason for it. I completely forgot that I had intended on doing the Pop Culture Readathon this month. And because I forgot, my plan was to just reread the Mortal Instruments (which I have almost totally forgotten because the TV series has stolen what actually happened from my…

    May ’20 wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! 2020 has been a time. One of my friends was joking that she and her sister are going to make a tour band style t-shirt for 2020, but instead of concerts, it’s just going to be all the shit that is going on in the world this year against each month. I imagine it’s going to look…

    June ’20 TBR

    Good morning bookworms! Look, I’ll be honest. I don’t even know HOW we are at the end of May already. There’s clearly some faulty timer or something else gone wrong with 2020, you know, as well as all the other stuff that’s gone wrong with this year… Anyway, separate from my big monthly wrap up that’s coming sometime next week,…

    April ’20 wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! April… jeez… I’m glad that’s over!! The world is still in isolation… Am I doing anything productive?? Not really!! Let’s talk about what happened last month… I survived the O.W.L.s, and managed to hit all the prompts I needed in order to go for the careers I want for my N.E.W.T.s!! I almost missed Potions because I…

    May ’20 TBR

    Good morning bookworms! How are we already a third of the way through the year? I feel like 2020 has taken about 39 seconds, but also 6 years. I have aged 13 years since being at home. All. The. TIME. However, I can’t shouldn’t complain too much, because I know I am fortunate to still have a job – I…

    March ’20 wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! Let’s talk about March… ooof. I am telling you, someone needs to pull the plug on 2020 and let’s just restart this year, because between fire, floods and worldwide pandemic, I am done with 2020, and we’re only one quarter through. On a happier note, let’s talk about all the GOOD things from last month.   I…

    O.W.L.s read-a-thon TBR 2020

    Good morning book wizards and witches! IT’S O.WL.s TIME AGAIN!!! If you don’t know what O.W.L.s are then… you should read Harry Potter. OR you can watch Gintare’s video on YouTube about it!! But, very basically, Gintare (@BookRoast) runs a bi-annual read-a-thon based on the fifth and seventh year wizarding tests at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. O.W.L.s (Ordinary…

    February ’20 wrap up and March TBR

    Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the monthly wrap-up! During January… I got sick and had 2 migraines (new record). I also didn’t read anything for 11 days. That’s a pretty good record. Reading though? I read 6 books… which is the equal lowest number of books read per month in the last two years. (June 2019 was also 6…

    Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the monthly wrap-up for January! During January I read 9 books. Which was totally fine, unless you look at my reading pattern, which was kind of a joke!! (Week 1: nothing, week 2: 7 ebooks, week 3: 1 audiobook, week 4: nothing, last 4 days of month: 1 physical book.) I was kind of…

    2019 WRAP-UP!!

    Good afternoon bookworms! Ahhh… the dreaded annual wrap-up. I mean, it’s not really “dreaded”… it just takes me ages to write and so I procrastinate it forever. Except, this year I was pretty good at keeping my spreadsheets up to date, so *hopefully* this won’t be as terrible as my brain is making it out to be!!* PS: This is…

    Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the final monthly wrap-up for 2019, the December wrap-up! During December I read an excessive amount of books. For me. A grand total of 18 books, which is definitely my highest monthly total for the year!! This mostly had to do with Sam @ Fictionally Sam’s Mrs Claus’ Readathon, but also probably to do…

    Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the October wrap-up! During October I read 13 books – which is an appropriately spooky number!!

    Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the September wrap-up! During September I read 8 books, and finished some series, which, is basically unfathomable.

    Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the August wrap-up! So, I read 7 books in August, which was not too bad. I did get through five ARCs, so ARC August wasn’t a complete loss!! BUT, the biggest challenge of the month came when I realised that Darkdawn was being released early in Australia, so I did drop everything to reread…
