    Top 5… creepy atmospheres!

    Good morning bookworms! Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is ‘creepy atmospheres’! Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the super lovely Shanah over at the Bionic Bookworm. You can visit her here, and join in for Top 5 Tuesday by checking out all the amazing topics that are coming up! So… I don’t read thriller or horror books… like, at all. So, I will try my best for this week, but hopefully I will be all in for November!! The Wicked Deep – Shea Ernshaw This book is about as creepy as I…

    Book recommendations: Overwatch edition #1

    Good morning bookworms! So, if you know anything about me (except that I love books and cake), you’ll know that I am low-key obsessed with Overwatch. Admittedly, my team in the Overwatch League (New York Excelsior – picked prior to Stage 1 last year as Gansey’s catchphrase is ‘Excelsior!’) isn’t doing too well with the new meta (which is really odd because surely Pine and Saebyeolbe should be back in fine form as DPS?!); however, this is not what I’m here to talk to you about today! If you’re not…

    2018 WRAP-UP & 2019 GOALS!!

    Good morning bookworms! I have been procrastinating writing this post for about two weeks now… in fact, every time I get close to being ready with it, I discover a new graph I can add to it. However, I need to accept that it will never be perfect (I mean, seriously, what is?) and just roll with it. Also, I need to finish writing my 2019 goals, because, we’re already in 2019 and I should have some… right?! PS: This is going to be the longest post EVER, so I’m…

    August ’18 wrap-up (OWLs challenge) and September TBR

    PHEW! For the first time in I don’t know how long, I read more books that I got for the month. Basically I think I now deserve a Nobel bookish prize for outstanding contributions to my TBR. Is that a thing? If not, can we make it a thing? August wrap-up – OWLs challenge results! WOOT! I got my OWLs (also known as Ordinary Wizarding Tests) by reading a book or story relating to a prompt for each of the subjects that I was interested in gaining results for! This…

    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. 😂…

    April ’18 book haul

    You know, I genuinely thought that this month would be better than others, but I totally forgot about half of the books I ordered online (mostly preorders) and then I had two in person splurges… One day this will slow down… I mean, it has to, right?! Anyway, we are splitting this into three sections because I (once again) bought too many books. April book boxes OK, so I got my normal quota of book subscription boxes this month. Yay! (PS: if anyone knows anyone who wants the ‘other stuff’…
