    October ’19 wrap up

    Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the October wrap-up! During October I read 13 books – which is an appropriately spooky number!! I also finally read the remainder of the Bloodlines series, and I think I loved it more than Vampire Academy… I just, love Sydrian so much!! 😍 (Also, I don’t know if “Sydrian” is a thing, but I’m making…

    September '19 wrap up, Bookending Autumn, and finally doing my NEWTs!

    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. I think I’m still in shock that the Nevernight Chronicle is truly over. However, they were all really great books!!

    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…

    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…

    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! Book Author Series…

    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…

    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…

    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,…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    Good morning bookworms! It’s December!! I can’t believe another year is basically over!! November wrap-up During November I completed my Goodreads challenge!! HOORAY!! I read 11 books, and although this was a high number for me, this month was a bit less satisfactory than normal because I had some lower ratings. Book Author Series Format TBR? Reread?

    I can’t believe we’re nearly at Christmas! And 2019 is right around the corner… how time has flown this year! October wrap-up During October I read 7 books, and they were all amazing! I did add an additional column to my usual table, as I thought I should probably start marking off whether these books were on my TBR… Let…

    September ’18 wrap-up and October TBR

    September wrap-up My reading month was ok for September. I read seven books, but I definitely got distracted by Sophie’s post and then I found Kindle Unlimited and I read way more eBooks than I normally do. So my TBR didn’t really go down… But I still read a some good books so I’m satisfied with my reading pile! I…

    August ’18 wrap-up (OWLs challenge) and September TBR

    PHEW! For the first time in I don’t know how long, I read more books that I got for the month. Basically I think I now deserve a Nobel bookish prize for outstanding contributions to my TBR. Is that a thing? If not, can we make it a thing? August wrap-up – OWLs challenge results! WOOT! I got my OWLs…

    July ’18 wrap-up and August TBR

    I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like I’m just adding the same books onto my TBR, and then every month I have to admit that I didn’t read them (again), only to add them again for next month. I’m still kind of reading slump-ishly at the moment. Work is killing me, and I’ve been sick, and winter…

    June ’18 wrap-up and July TBR

    Jeez… July 4 already and I still haven’t posted my June wrap-up! Where does the time go? I’m feeling more and more like the white rabbit every month! I have to admit, that reading slump I was on during the the second half of May, totally spilled over into June. I didn’t read anything until 22 June (well, I read…

    May ’18 wrap-up and June TBR

    May was a KILLER month for me. And by “killer”, I mean I worked a LOT more than I normally do, so in turn, I read far less. May is always a busy month for my work, but this year was kind of beyond the normal insanity of it. This is also why I had not realised that all my…

    April ’18 wrap-up and May TBR

    April was a KILLER month for me. I read a bunch of books, some of them were average (mostly the contemporaries), but most of them were great, so it was still good. I also read most of my set TBR, so I am slowly (but surely) getting through it! April wrap-up FYI, I totally killed it for April. I’m really…

    OMG, how the hell are we in April already? I still haven’t done my book haul post or unboxed any boxes I got in March and I haven’t even edited the February videos!! Where has the year gone?! So, this month saw me attend the Obsidio book launch in Melbourne, and having a ginormous 16 books signed by the dynamic…

    February ’18 wrap-up and March TBR

    Well, that was a disappointing month of reading… I did only read half the month though, as I managed to get into a two week reading slump! However, the books were all over 400 pages and I went back to work, so I can’t be too mad at myself! February wrap-up OK, so I managed to finish 5 books this…

    January ’18 wrap-up and February TBR

    Due to travel, I read a much larger number of ebooks than I normally do, but I also think I must have read them faster, because I seemed to tear through them, which was good as it gave me a pretty good head start on my 70 book aim for the year. Although Goodreads has been classifying each issue of…
