Hello book lovers! I hope all of you are doing well. It’s that time again where I share my favorite book of the month. How has the time gone by so fast? June has been an odd reading month for me – I only managed to finish one book thanks to finally starting The Night Circus (which I am really enjoying) so naturally, the only book I finished is my book of the month. That’s not to say it doesn’t 100% deserve the award though! Continue reading “June Book of the Month”
Hello book lovers! I hope that all of you are doing well. Is anyone else completely thrown-off by the fact that it is already June? Where has this year gone?? As someone dealing with the pressures of finding a job and moving, I do not appreciate time flying by – it only adds to the stress! June is also the halfway mark for those of us with reading goals for 2019. My goal is 35 books and I am only at 12, thanks to barely having any ‘fun reading time’ during the final months of my degree, which Goodreads likes to remind me as being ‘3 books behind schedule’. Thanks babe. Continue reading “Mid-Year Reading Update”
Hello book lovers! I have decided to start a new series on my blog called “Book of the Month”. I felt this would be more interesting than a monthly wrap-up as it allows me to give my full attention to a book that I loved – and can happily ramble about for however long I want. Continue reading “May Book of the Month”
Hello book lovers! Another week, another catch-up review. I have recently been finding it hard to balance my bookish social media and reading due to me getting so into my recent reads so apologies for the inconsistency. I know that sounds crazy seeing as I am on summer break still so I SHOULD be taking advantage of that fact but instead my body seems to be choosing sleep when I do want to be productive, which is not necessarily a bad thing as a university student currently on break. With that being said, I am returning to uni next week with classes starting the week after so I plan on creating a schedule to time out everything and truly make the most of my final year. Yay for only having two days of classes…? Continue reading “The Series I Binge Read This Summer”
Hello book lovers! Long time no see! I took quite a long break from here due to being in the (very) long process of moving AND having a two-week internship at Hachette in London (which I will write a post about in the near future) so taking photos, notes, and finding the time to write while juggling all of the craziness and my current reading kick clearly did not work out. However, seeing as I have been reading like crazy, I have so many book reviews to catch up on for you guys and I am so excited – I have had some really good luck with my book choices this summer which means positive content and an encouraged reader (who may or may not be about to fall into a reading slump due to running low on good books but fingers crossed this does not happen as reading is currently my sanity). Continue reading “You Need to Read This Book.”
Hello book lovers! Guess who is FINALLY catching up on her growing review pile – this girl! I have been flying through books these past few weeks and yet it some how just hit me that I haven’t been writing any reviews lately – and I need to for the majority that I have read because either I loved them and/or I have a lot to say about them. Thankfully today’s is a read that caught me surprise and I absolutely loved it. I COULDN’T PUT IT DOWN! Continue reading “I Couldn’t Put This Book Down.”
Hello book lovers! Guess who is finally free and on summer break! This girl! I have so much planned for this summer with this blog and my YouTube channel which makes me so happy and I am ready to take on all of my goals.
Now for those of you that follow my bookstagram, you may remember me mentioning some things on my 2018 Bucket List in January – going to the cinema by myself for the very first time was one of them. I have been trying to work out the perfect time and movie for this ever since and last Tuesday was finally the big day! (Wow, I am being dramatic about this but guys — it was a big deal to me). Continue reading “2018 Bucket List: I Finally Went to the Cinema by Myself”
Hello book lovers! Today’s review is for the first classic that I have read this year and boy did I love it. I needed to read a book for my creative writing course that discussed depression in a way that current books don’t so I took a leap by selecting The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. I have been wanting to read this book for a while and went into it barely knowing anything about the plot. It did turn my stomach at times but I fell right into it and couldn’t stop reading it whenever I had the time to. I could have easily flown through it in a matter of days but darn university for making it take eleven days – which isn’t TOO bad… right?

Hello book lovers! I am posting this review over 48 hours after finishing the book and I AM STILL NOT OKAY!! I finally gave in to buying this book on World Book Day, because I obviously had to celebrate it that way, and boy do I not know how it took me so long to pick it up! I first heard about Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman when the trailer was released last year as it was being shown in film festivals. It caught my attention right away with its artsy and travel vibes so once I found out that it was originally a book, I was ecstatic. Continue reading “The Book That I Read in Only Three Days”
Hello book lovers! I am finally writing a review for my first ever blog tour! I was sent this book by Razorbill, an imprint of Penguin Random House. How exciting! I am a bit late on this due to it getting lost in the mail but I am still so thankful for this amazing opportunity. I am hoping to film a review/discussion on my booktube channel soon (once I am no longer ill) so be sure to watch out for it! Continue reading “Review: Rookie on Love, Edited by Tavi Gevinson”
