    Ringing in the New Year Book Tag

    Good morning bookworms! Right! I’m here to start the new year off with a bang! And what better way to do it, than to steal some tags that are about a year old, and recreate them and send them back out into the world? (No, but seriously, this was waaaaaay easier than creating my own tag.) So, we’re rebranding an end of 2017 tag as a start of 2019 tag. HOORAY! Rules: Link to the person who tagged you (umm, no one) Link to the creator of the tag (Bookmark…

    September ’18 wrap-up and October TBR

    September wrap-up My reading month was ok for September. I read seven books, but I definitely got distracted by Sophie’s post and then I found Kindle Unlimited and I read way more eBooks than I normally do. So my TBR didn’t really go down… But I still read a some good books so I’m satisfied with my reading pile! I definitely read more romance this month that I normally do. And there seemed to be a lot more smut than I ever read in a month, but it was ok.…

    Ordinary Wizarding Levels Read-a-thon ’18

    So, I know this technically happened in April of this year, but I have only just found out about it now that people are doing their NEWT read-a-thon, but in order to do the NEWTs, I have to sit the OWLs, so this is why I’m doing OWLs now, and then I’ll do NEWTs in October (I need a 31 day month for this!!). If you have zero idea what I am talking about, let me start from the beginning. I hear it’s a very good place to start. 😂…

    OK, so I know most people have already done this, but did you know, that the actual mid-year day is the 2nd of July? So I’m not really that far off!

Best book you’ve read so far The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater has to be the best book I have read so far this year.…

  • LitJoy Batman: Nightwalker unboxing

    So I’ve been mucking around with iMovie this morning editing my unboxing video I took for the LitJoy crate. I did upload this one to Instagram, but apparently they hate videos longer than 60 seconds, so I deleted it and redid it all fast so it fit! So, this is the slightly longer one that I put on YouTube. It’s my first ever #booktube video, and it sucks a lot, but you know, first go, etc. etc. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqhL5FS6KPo&w=560&h=315] Included in the box is: 🦇 Bat signal projector pen (it’s…
