    Top 5… Authors: K-O

    Good evening bookworms! Late again, but this week it’s my fault… Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is authors from K-O, which is a continuation from last week’s topic! As I mentioned before, I’m also going to try and not do the obvious choices for letters (there won’t be any Jay Kristoff’s or Holly Black’s on my list) so long as I can find someone else (although you can bet that Maggie Stiefvater will be in the S spot)! Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the super lovely Shanah over at the…

    Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the September wrap-up! During September I read 8 books, and finished some series, which, is basically unfathomable.

    N.E.W.T.s read-a-thon TBR 2019

    Good morning book wizards and witches! Today I am announcing my NEWTs read-a-thon TBR! (Which is actually mildly hilarious/ironic if you read my Off Tangent Thoughts post on me doing read-a-thons…) So, if you don’t know about O.W.L.s and/or N.E.W.T.s you can click on my post from last year HERE, or you can go watch G @ Book Roast’s videos (2019 OWLs and 2019 NEWTs). Now, I know that TECHNICALLY most people did their NEWTs in August, however, I had this post drafted and ready to go, but then I decided to do…

    ABC Book Challenge: L

    Good morning bookworms! Quick life update: We have moved!! I am still living in a sea of boxes, but the cats were ok with the 8 hour car trip and settlement went through without any issues, so cheers all around! I will be returning to my regular scheduled posting in a couple more days. I still have many boxes to unpack and we have a bunch of new furniture coming on Monday. Ok, back to the post!

    O.W.L.s read-a-thon wrap-up 2019

    Good morning book wizards and witches! Holy moly! Thank god that’s over. WHYYYYY do I think that signing up for reading challenges is a good idea? I am a MOOD READER. I am BAD at this. Let’s go see what I actually read this month, and then we can discuss how I am NOT *spoiler alert* going to be an Alchemist. If you don’t know about O.W.L.s you can click on my post from last year HERE, or you can go watch G @ Book Roast‘s video HERE. OWLs TBR…

    Avengers Readathon TBR

    Good morning bookworms! Yes folks, it’s time for me to sign up to MOAR read-a-thons that I may not be able to handle! Are you ready? (Good. At least someone is…) So, The Perks of Being Noura have compiled this amazing challenge, and I am signing up. Why, you ask? It’s mostly because I’m a huge Marvel nerd. But also because I don’t think that 12 challenges in one year is enough. No sirree, Bob. The Avengers Read-a-thon starts on 14 April and runs through to 14 May – that’s…

    March '19 book haul

    Good morning bookworms! As per normal, we are splitting this into three sections: book boxes, book mail (online purchases that arrived), and book purchases (ebooks and in-store). Unfortunately (for my bank account) my mini slump did not cross over into the purchasing of books… I bought a lot this month. I apologise in advance for that if anyone is frustrated by my spending. I can only say that I’m in my 30’s and have a well paying job. I do run giveaways on my Instagram twice per year to share…
