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”
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! 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! 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”
Hello book lovers! I hope that all of you are doing well. I am officially on summer break but have been super busy with my family so my blog has been put on hold for a bit but I am back! I have a lot of fun posts planned for these next few months so be sure to follow so that you don’t miss out!
I was originally just going to make a haul for the month of April but then realised that I went on a book buying craze in both April and May. I was trying to make the most of my time with Waterstones and Foyles while dealing with new releases that I have been eager to grab, as well as having my mom visit which lead to spending a while in Waterstones Piccadilly and going to central with my boyfriend numerous times which means returning with at least one book each time. TALK ABOUT BOOK BUYING SUPPORT! Continue reading “Spring Book Haul: I Have No Control”
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 hope that all of you are having a lovely week. It has been quite a long time since I did a haul (thanks to me putting myself on a book-buying ban) but thanks to my creative writing course and being sent books for review, I finally have a pile to share with you guys! Woo! Continue reading “March Book Haul”
