    April 2021 wrap up

    Hello bookworms!! It’s time for the April 2021 wrap up. Which was only like a week ago. Who is this person who has already posted FOUR times this month?! Apparently we met organisation, and are now friends. Who knew?! Don’t get me wrong, life is still kicking my butt a little. OK, maybe a lot. But I’m trying very hard…

    March 2021 wrap up

    Hello bookworms!! It’s time for the March 2021 wrap up. Which was basically forever ago because April has been a TIME. Is it just me, or is 2021 shaping up to be somehow worse than 2020?? Just like in February, I can’t seem to stay on top of things. Except where I was failing at everything except two things before,…

    February 2021 wrap-up

    Hello bookworms!! It’s time for the February 2021 wrap-up. AND I’m even doing it earlier than I have been, although it is halfway through March… Despite it only being two weeks ago, I have no idea what happened in February. Is it just me or is this year just one long blur so far?? I just can’t seem to keep…

    2020 WRAP UP!!

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the 2020 wrap up!! I can’t believe we’re already in February 2021. I feel like by the time I get to doing to wrap up for this year it’ll be June 2022… BUT, we’re here now and I’m ready and raring to go. Well… maybe not ‘raring’ per se. But I’m ready. I’m also expecting this…

    November and December 2020 wrap-up

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the November AND December 2020 wrap-up. Because I didn’t get organised enough to publish the November one and now it’s two thirds of the way through January and I haven’t even done the full 2020 wrap-up yet. Because what even is being organised in this day and age??? Honestly, I barely even remember what happened last…

    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.

    September 2020 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.…

    August 2020 wrap up

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the August 2020 wrap up!! 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…

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the July 2020 wrap up!! Did I completely forget that July is over and I haven’t done a wrap up yet? Yes, I did.

    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…

    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…

    Top 5… sanity savers!

    Good morning bookworms! Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is ‘sanity savers – things I’m enjoying while in isolation!’ Because so help me, I am starting to lose my mind… In saying that, today is day number… twenty-six that I have been in isolation. Now, that’s a lot for Australia. We had our first confirmed case in Canberra on 12 March, and…

    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…

    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…

    Good afternoon bookworms This is just a very small post to say that … well, I’m tired!

Welcome to my rant post where I’ll be discussing all the things I want to accomplish this year, while simultaneously whining about how I signed up for too many things last year, and oh yeah, I still haven’t read a book yet in 2020.* As per 2019, I have signed up to a LOT of challenges for…
