    2020 mid-year freak out!

    Hello bookworms!! A couple of weeks ago, the gorgeous duo of Marie and Nyx @ Drizzle Hurricane Books tagged me to do the mid-year freak out book tag. And I’m late to the party because I seem to be late at everything lately… Also, I don’t like to do this until after we hit the mid-way mark of the year because I’m a freaking rule-following Ravenclaw… (Also, posting schedule? What posting schedule? *throws desk planner diary out the window*) So, let’s get started!! Disclaimer: I will not be using any…

    Good morning bookworms! MERRY CHRISTMAS!! (It’s Christmas in Australia, ok? Your turn will come soon!!)

Firstly, we had the Joy of Christmas book tag (tagged by Michaela @ Journey into Books), and then the Naughty or Nice book tag (tagged by Luna @ Bookish Luna), and finally the Jingle Bells book tag (tagged by…

    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…

    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…
