We’ve reached the end of October, which means I’ll be going back to my regular publishing schedule! I’ve had so, so, so much fun creating all this content and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading all my posts! Since I’ve posted a whooooole lot of stuff over the past month, I decided to do a blog wrap up on here, as well as a little reflection on the past month. If you’ve missed anything in the past month, have no fear, the blog wrap up is here! Read more
Whew, I did it again! (Or should I say Oops? hehe…) I read so many books this month I can barely believe I actually did read them this month and not… last year, ha! I’m a bit early with this month’s wrap up as I have a blog wrap up scheduled for tomorrow, but as I’m not planning on reading much today, you won’t miss much. This month I read physical books, eBooks AND audiobooks, which is probably the reason I managed to read eleven books this month. So, without further ado; here’s my October Wrap Up!
I absolutely love The Legend of Zelda. It’s my all time favourite video game so obviously I had to write about it at some point. Since Autumn and Winter are the perfect time for video games, I thought why not just do it now? I have a bunch of Zelda books that I’ll be talking about today, and I really hope you’ll enjoy it even if you’re not into video games! Read more
I’m featuring some guest bloggers this month, and Kelly @ This Northern Gal is one of them! I’m super excited about her post, because it’s about her Kindle! I can really relate to her post, and I’m sure many of you will as well. As both physical book and an ebook reader, I often struggle between what to pick up next. Do I go for the bookshelf? Or get my iPad? I’m not alone in this and if you can relate, neither are you! Anyway, enough of my babbling, here’s Kelly’s guest post. Read more
Having your birthday on a Tuesday is probably the best thing. I mean, think of all the book releases! Seriously, I’m considering asking all the November 7th releases for my birthday just because we share a birthday, you know? Anyway, it’s not about me today, it’s about The Becoming of Noah Shaw by Michelle Hodkin! Somehow the cover of this book gave me Autumn vibes. Plus, since it’s an Autumn release, it fits perfectly with the Autumn theme on my blog this month! Read more
Reviews of contemporary books are extremely rare on my blog. They’re so rare, in fact, that this is my first one. I’ve read quite a few contemporaries this year, but I only review them on Goodreads because I feel like my niche is (YA) fantasy and it’s exactly how I want to it be. But after reading The Hate U Give, I couldn’t not talk about it. It’s such an incredible and important book and I couldn’t let it go unnoticed on Goodreads. So, without further ado, here are my thoughts on Angie Thomas’ THUG.
Oh my goodness, I don’t think I’ve ever kept a blogging “secret” to myself for so long. I’ve been filming little bits and pieces of my first (hopefully weekly) Reading Vlog over the past week and I managed NOT to talk about it until a few hours ago. Mostly because I was scared I would end up not publishing it, I think. But this morning I sat down to edit, and I’m so happy with how it turned out! I really loved making this vlog, and I hope you’ll enjoy watching it! Read more
At the beginning of this year, A Series of Unfortunate Events premiered on Netflix and I’ve been in love with the series ever since. I never knew about the book series when I was kid, so I only started reading/listening to the series at the beginning of this year! The vibe of this series is dark and I guess you could say a bit ‘depressing’ as well as, obviously, unfortunate. It’s a perfect vibe for the dark and gloomy Autumn days, so I thought “Why not share some of my love for this series!?” Without further ado; here’s five reasons why I love ASOUE. Read more
One of my most anticipated releases of this Autumn, was All The Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater. Imagine my surprise when I found it on Storytel before it even released! Obviously, I couldn’t listen to it until the official release, but it was saved to my bookshelf and I started listening to it the moment I could. I absolutely loved The Raven Cycle so I just could not wait to finally get a new Maggie Stiefvater book!
Contrary to what the title of this post might make you believe, I’m actually not drowning in my TBR pile. Yeah, yeah, okay, I hear your gasps and shocks and… Oh please don’t pass out! My TBR isn’t all that big, not compared to most bookish people in the community, anyway. My TBR is more like a kiddy pool. I’m not very tall, but I wouldn’t drown in there! Anyway, Lara @ Words With Lara tagged me to do this, and I happily oblige! Read more
