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! 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 thought that it would be fun to set myself a TBR pile for February. I tend to not do this anymore as I never stick to them but this month I am on a massive reading kick so I thought that I would give it another go while being more reasonable with my amount.
January was a really good month for me but I have decided to give myself a break from my reading assignments for my creative writing course (minus my massive one) and focus on some of the books that I bought recently. Continue reading “The Month for Big Books and Bribing?”
Hello everyone! I hope that you are all doing well and getting into the festive spirit. I just submitted my final deadline this morning and I am so relieved! It is finally time for Christmas!!!
With 2017 beginning to wrap up, I have been in the mood to start planning some goals for the new year. I have personal, academic, and book related goals so I thought that it would be fun to share with you today my reading goals of 2018.
My Goodreads reading challenge for 2017 was twenty-five books and I am very proud to say that I reached this goal in November, thanks to me miraculously reading six books that month whilst dealing with deadlines and traveling. There is a part of me that wants to be ambitious with my 2018 goal but I think that I’m going to be safe and bump it up by five books, so thirty for one year.
