    WWW Wednesday – 8 July 2020

    Good evening bookworms! WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words, where you answer the three following questions: What did you recently finish reading? What are you currently reading? What do you think you’ll read next? It’s been an interesting reading week!! I’m taking a page out of Elsa’s book and learning to let go. Especially of things that are making me feel STRESSED. So, I’m wiping off things that are low-key freaking me out, and moving on!!

    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…

    May ’20 TBR

    Good morning bookworms! How are we already a third of the way through the year? I feel like 2020 has taken about 39 seconds, but also 6 years. I have aged 13 years since being at home. All. The. TIME. However, I can’t shouldn’t complain too much, because I know I am fortunate to still have a job – I think I would just like to take a few days off from said job and lie on the couch and read a book. Or make my new home office feel…

    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? As per the new prettiness of the blog, book haul categories are as follows: book boxes book purchases (book mail, in-store, digital* and gifts) review…

    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 books!) Also, two of the books that I finished were even on my TBR for February, so I basically won because that never happens! However, I’m trying not to beat…

    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…

Back in September LAST YEAR (ok, maybe that is American Pie length of time), the lovely Hanna at Hanna Reads tagged me in The Sims book tag!
