    August '19 wrap up and Sequel September

    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 the first two books… Book Author Series Format Rating (/5) Cover Bloodlines Richelle Mead Bloodlines #1 Paperback 4 The Bride Test (ARC) Helen Hoang The Kiss Quotient #2 Paperback 5…

    June '19 wrap up

    Good morning bookworms! OMG how are we in the second half of 2019 already?! So, I read 6 books in June (well, I DNF’ed 2, so I guess I only read 4?), and I’m trying very hard not to beat myself up for it. which is definitely my smallest monthly count for this year so far. However, I got through some review books, and that’s the main thing… (well, I’ve also already read 4 books in July, so I think I’m definitely coming up the other side of the slump!!)…

    May '19 wrap up

    Good morning bookworms! Is it just me, or is this year going crazy-fast?! May wrap-up So, I read 7 books in May, which is definitely my smallest monthly count for this year so far. I am still having a crazy fantasy-slump… so I decided to read a lot of enemies-to-lovers contemporary / romance books to combat it!

    April '19 wrap-up and NO TBR?!

    Good morning bookworms! We are one third into the year. Two more of these to go and we’ll be seeing 2020. (One more to go and I’ll have most of my anticipated reads for this year in my hot little hands!!!!) April wrap-up So, I read 10 books in April, which is mildly significant. (At this rate I might hit my Goodreads challenge of 90 books in October.) What is significant is that in this bunch, I had a 400+ page book, a 500+ page book, and an 800+ page…

    March '19 wrap-up and April TBR

    Good morning bookworms! We are officially less than 9 months out from 2020. Which is not only insane, but very surreal. This year is going far too quickly!! March wrap-up So, in last month’s wrap-up I was laughing it up about having a mid-year slump… and then I had a mini slump. What are the odds?! I mean, it’s entirely possible that I jinxed myself, but how often does that really happen? Anyway, graphic novels have saved my butt this month, pulling me through to a total of 11 books.…

    February '19 wrap-up and March TBR

    Good morning bookworms! It’s unbelievable to me that it’s actually 2019. It’s even more unbelievable that we have less than 10 months left of this year. (9 months and 30 days as I write this!) February wrap-up I had a pretty good reading month, despite having to go back to work this month. I am definitely in a holiday hangover, and it has been ROUGH!! I read 9 books, and I’m pretty happy with this! In fact, at this rate, I will be hitting my goal of 90 pretty quickly,…

    January '19 wrap-up and February TBR

    Good morning bookworms! So… it is at this point in time that I realise that 11 challenges is going to create a SUPER LONG monthly wrap-up post. How did this not occur to me until now? What I am going to trial this month is my usual monthly wrap-up (and TBR) post, and then a secondary challenges progress post (coming out soon). Let’s see how long this lasts for! January wrap-up I had a stellar reading month, despite travelling a LOT. In fact, I’m going to give you some small…

    2018 WRAP-UP & 2019 GOALS!!

    Good morning bookworms! I have been procrastinating writing this post for about two weeks now… in fact, every time I get close to being ready with it, I discover a new graph I can add to it. However, I need to accept that it will never be perfect (I mean, seriously, what is?) and just roll with it. Also, I need to finish writing my 2019 goals, because, we’re already in 2019 and I should have some… right?! PS: This is going to be the longest post EVER, so I’m…

    December ’18 wrap-up and January TBR

    Good morning bookworms! Wow… I can’t believe another year is over!! They are certainly going by a lot faster than I recall (I know this is about being older and perception of time, etc. but it’s still feeling awfully fast…) December wrap-up During December I read a couple of books, although not as many as I would have liked to finish!

    Holidays ’18 TBR

    Good morning bookworms! I’m on holidays! And I’m in the middle of packing my suitcase for our trip north to see our families! And because we’re taking the car, I can pack AS MANY BOOKS AS I WANT because there isn’t a luggage weight limit. Also, we’ll be gone for almost three weeks, so I’ll definitely want to pack a few! Now, my December TBR has been a disaster to date, so I’m throwing it out and starting again with a ‘Holiday TBR’. Basically, this is my process of validating…
