Little Women | Book Review

Dear Reader,

I finally read Little Women and these are my thoughts. I’ve been wanting to read this classic for a while now but must admit that I finally pushed myself to do so just to see the new movie. No I cannot miss anything that Timothée Chalamet or Emma Watson are in. In all honesty, I wish I had read this book years ago as I am certain I would have enjoyed it more then. I feel like the stories and lessons would have resonated with me more – and maybe I would have loved the girls more.

Hello book lovers! As the first week of fall comes to a close, I thought it would be a perfect time to share my 2019 fall reading recommendations with you. These are all books that I have read myself, deeply enjoyed, and cannot see a better time for you to pick them up. If you’re looking for something whimsical, I’ve got you covered. Eery and hooking? Got it. Current with recent news and politics? I’ve got that too! With a list of 10, I’m hoping there’s at least one book for each of you that you haven’t read yet AND that you will enjoy. Now get a warm beverage and cozy up in a blanket so that we can dive on in! Continue reading “10 Books to Read This Fall”

June Favourites

Hello book lovers! With June wrapping up, it’s time to share my five favorites things from this month. June has been an up and down month for me, from being busy traveling to job applications to preparing my flat to move out, it has been interesting to see what things became essentials for me. With so many things feeling out of my control lately, I took a step back to look at how my daily routines were going and what changes I wanted to make to feel better. So let’s get on to what items did exactly that for me in June! Continue reading “June Favourites”

June Book of the Month

Screen Shot 2019-06-26 at 1.31.18 PM

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”

Mid-Year Reading Update

Screen Shot 2019-06-12 at 1.53.58 PM

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”

The Series I Binge Read This Summer

TATBILB Review Header

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”

You Need to Read This Book.

The Hate U Give Review

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).

I Couldn’t Put This Book Down.

Book Review Title

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.”

Summer Book Club: Jumping on the Bandwagon

Book Club Title 7

Hello book lovers! Life has been a bit crazy lately but I finally found the time to work on my blog which means me finally feeling happy with it and ready to focus on my summer posts. Hooray! As those of you who follow me on Instagram (@papercupsandpaperbacks) may already know, I have decided to run a summer book club. I got a really good response from all of you guys on Instagram when I ran a poll which showed me that this truly would be fun and a great idea to keep me on schedule with all of my accounts this summer.  Continue reading “Summer Book Club: Jumping on the Bandwagon”
