• Sunshine Blogger Award #9

    Good morning bookworms! I know today would normally be Top 5 Tuesday, but Shanah is on a mini hiatus while she has the best sounding break – so I thought, “why don’t I try and catch up on some tags?!” So, the lovely Siobhan @ Siobhan’s novelties tagged me in the Sunshine blogger award back in June! (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…

    Book recommendations: Overwatch edition #2

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome back to another edition of… books I would recommend to Overwatch characters! (Click HERE for edition 1) Also, shout out to my team New York Excelsior (NYXL) for their hard work in the play-offs. The Vancouver game was hard to watch, and while they pulled off a stunning win for a couple of maps, they eventually went down 4-3. 😭😭 We’ll get them next year!! So, today’s backstory that I’m going to share is Reinhardt. This is another terribly sad story with a beautiful redemption arc, and…

    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…

  • Bookish lists banner with white book spines

    Hyped books everyone has read (except me)

    Good morning bookworms! In lieu of today’s WWW Wednesday (because I have no updates from last week’s post), I was inspired by a post from Kristin Kraves Books where she listed some books that she felt everyone had read, but her. Kristin then came back earlier this week to discuss whether she had read these books or they were no longer on her TBR. I loved this idea, so I’m pilfering it for my own blog! Thanks Kristin!!! 💕 (Also, go check out her blog if you haven’t because it’s great…

    Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests Read-a-thon ’18-19

    In August of this year I did my OWLs, and it has taken me this long to recover! However, I’ve been saying for a while now that I would like to do my NEWTs in January, so here we are. Now, if you have zero idea what the hell I’m talk about, please, let me inform you. Gintare over at the Book Roast created an amazing read-a-thon based on the exams in the Harry Potter novels. OWLs are your year 5 exams, or Ordinary Wizarding Levels. NEWTs are your year…

    March ’18 book haul

    YAY!! Who doesn’t love a good book haul?! I mean, apart from my bank account… Anyway, we are splitting this into three sections because I (once again) bought too many books… oops?! March book boxes OK, so I got my normal large quota of books this month, but we’re starting with subscriptions. Yay! OwlCrate’s March box theme was Across the Galaxy, and (unsurprisingly), the book was a copy of Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston. The OC copy has a slightly different cover (therefore exclusive), purple sprayed edges and is…
