Oh, wow, I had a great reading month in April. I cannot believe how well that went—finally! I’m so happy with my reading month and for the most part I read some fantastic books! April feels like I’ve got things BACK ON TRACK, but truth be told I actually had a lot of downtime thanks to COVID so . . . maybe this is all a lie and I’ll go back to being behind in May.
Seeing as we have little else to do in April as the whole world shuts down for quarantine, it’s excellent time to get onto some of these new releases! I am personally quite excited for the all the reading time I’m going to have! Continue reading →
Did you know, 131 years ago today the Eiffel Tower was opened to the public at the World Fair for the first time?! What an exciting anniversary this is. Is the Eiffel Tower something you want to see? Or something you’ve already visited?! I will never forget seeing it for the first time and being utterly confronted by how positively enormous the damn thing is.
The Goodreads reading challenge is up and live and so begins a new year of reading goals! I love setting myself challenges and goals for reading even though to many this is maybe a stressful thought. But I find I thrive off the challenge! Continue reading →
Oh boy, I had such a great feeling going into November – I was HYPED for reading. So naturally I ended stuck in one particular book for tHrEe weeks and that ruined all my magnificent reading plans. If that isn’t a metaphor for life then I don’t know what is.
December is an incredibly dry month this year for releases. I have scoured the internet, thinking I must just be missing something. But as far as I can see, there are only a handful of new releases (and there aren’t that many sequels either, though I will mostly be talking about firsts or standalones). Continue reading →
I have decided to combine the last two months in one book haul – not because I forgot but because September was rather a poor effort for book hauling. So instead of boring us all with a paltry 3-book haul, I’ve lumped September in with my much healthier book hoarding habits from October. Continue reading →
It’s that time again! Time to pray that our wallets can withstand all the new and amazing releases coming out this month. October has exhausted me: there are so many books from last month that I want and several that I bought, that I’m nervous to dive into this post. But I’m sure I will come out of it stronger and armed with more books than ever. Continue reading →
Well, September was a lot more successful than August for reading. I managed to squeeze in five books last month and most were awesome! I’ve also been carving out more time for blogging which has been wonderful. As I mentioned in my previous wrap-up, I do have exciting news to tell you but alas, it will need to wait until at least next month.
Living in Australia, I don’t really celebrate Halloween. It’s just not a thing in our neck of the woods. That being said, it doesn’t stop the retail stores wistfully stocking their shelves with spooky products for those few of us who go all out. Personally, I carve a pumpkin and that’s it. I do like carving pumpkins.
