    The Book Predictions tag

    Good morning bookworms! Because the lovely Shanah is still on a blog hiatus, and there’s no Top 5 Tuesday, all Tuesdays in July will be dedicated to catching up on tags! Which, will barely make a dint in the pile of tags I have HOARDED (like a dragon – seriously, I have 52 on my list, and that does not count doubles… maybe I need to dedicate a day to them every week for a while…).

    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 mind, and also it’s been YEARS – like, at least 6 – since I’ve read them), and then finally start get a start on the 10,000 other Shadowhunter books I…

    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, I’d just like to announce that I read TWO books on the May TBR – and that’s pretty good for me!! 😂 It’s basically a victory, so let’s see if…

    March ’20 book haul

    Good morning bookworms!! It’s time for the monthly book haul!! Also… cast your mind back to the start of the year when I said I wanted to keep my hauls under 10 books per month? cough Ummm… you see, that really didn’t happen last month. I think I went crazy. I’m not even sure what happened. Maybe it was like an out of body experience?

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome to this week’s WWW Wednesday! What is this, you ask? Well, it’s a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words.

    Good afternoon bookworms! Book haul categories are as follows: book boxes book purchases (book mail, instore and digital) review copies (book mail and digital), and bookish items (book related, but not actual books).
