(I mean, I’m kind of catching up?!) Rules Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to their blogging site. Answer the questions. Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11…

    ABC Book Challenge: M

    Good morning bookworms! Quick life update: Remember how we moved house? Yeah, well I hurt my back lifting boxes, and then I ignored it, kind of hoping it would go away… A-HAHAHAHA. Life lesson for you all: Don’t do that. Because of my repeated ignoring, I managed to do more damage which has resulted in 3 sprained discs in my back, and really, just a lot of pain. Hence my sudden disappearance again!! But I’m on the mend again, so fingers crossed I can finally catch up and finish all…

    September ’18 book haul

    As usual, we are splitting this into three sections: book boxes, book mail (online purchases), and book purchases (in-store). However, this month I also discovered Kindle Unlimited, so I’m going to pop these into book purchases to fill this out a bit more! September book boxes So, I am starting to pare back my subscription boxes. A few months ago you may have noticed that I was getting FIVE boxes per month. The reason was that I wanted to support local (Aussie) book boxes, but I also wanted the big ones.…

    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 box)! The other June boxes all arrived very late as well (with the exception of OwlCrate). As usual, we are splitting this into three sections: book boxes, online purchases (book…

In fact, all of them bar one have still not arrived… OwlCrate’s June box theme was Summer Lovin’, and contained From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon with an exclusive…
