    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 Wizarding Levels) are the fifth year tests, and in April we read a bunch of books that correspond to prompts the Gintare changes each year. The aim is to pick…

What are you currently reading? What do you think you’ll read next? Also, remember last year when I was behind on blog-hopping by like 300 posts and I was freaked out?

  • Wrap-up and TBR banner with a selection of books with red spines

    January ’20 wrap up and February TBR

    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 all over the place with our renovations and family stuff and we had a big BBQ at our place and the fires – I mean, the fires are still going……

    Top 5 Tuesday 2019 wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! I know, I know… this isn’t actually a Tuesday. But it’s also not really a Top 5 Tuesday topic, so WE ARE FINE. So… what are we doing, you ask? Well, during 2019 Shanah asked us a lot of questions. Approximately 45. And some of them required us to predict things that would happen in the future. Books we were going to read this year, books we thought would be 5 star reads, books we were going to buy, etc. So, I’m now going back to check…

However, today’s tag is brought to us by the amazing Clo @ Cuppa Clo. Clo and I both love NCIS LA and when she said she was creating a tag for it, I basically squeeeeeed with joy, jumped up and down, and…

    Top 5… books I didn’t get to in 2019

    Good morning bookworms! Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is ‘books I didn’t get to in 2019’! Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the super lovely Shanah over at the Bionic Bookworm. You can visit her here, and join in for Top 5 Tuesday by checking out all the amazing topics that are coming up! The worst part about this post is that I could actually copy my ‘top 5 books I didn’t get to in 2018’, and it would still be true… However, I have already written a Top 5 Tuesday…

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome back to another edition of… books I would recommend to Overwatch characters! (Click here for edition 1, and edition 2!) So, I must admit, I was expecting some new characters to be announced at BlizzCon earlier this month… but they announced Overwatch 2 instead!! Which is exciting!! It’s still in development, but I’m looking forward to finding out more!! And the new short made me cry (not surprising… but it was a happy cry), and I can’t wait to show you it after we get through all…
