    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…

    July ’18 book haul

    ARGHHHHH! I had some real issues this month with my book boxes from June. My FairyLoot box got stolen from my front porch when it was delivered, so I thought that was the end of that, but then FairyLoot said they would send me a replacement box, so I am very happy about that (and it arrived with my July…

    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!

    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…

    March ’18 wrap-up and April TBR

    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…
