Oh, my goodness. My heart is SO full of happiness right now. You’re all probably aware of the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before movie by now, and let me tell you this: it deserves ALL the hype it gets. I’m not really a rom-com person, and I wasn’t sure what to expect but I loved it so much more than I thought it would. I’ve actually lost count of how many times I’ve watched this movie. It could be five times, could be ten… WHO KNOWS?! I wouldn’t call this post a review exactly, but here are my thoughts.
Whew! How is it September already? I swear to the bookish gods I missed the last day of August? Not that being a few days late with my Bookish Bulletin is a crime, but I was surprised to find I hadn’t worked on it yet while I should’ve done that… Oops? Life has just been crazy! Anyway, I’ve got a lot to tell you, so let’s just dive right in.
Whew, I was hoping to get this post up earlier, but then
Bookish people often write reviews. Whether you have a blog, #Bookstagram or Goodreads account doesn’t matter. In some way, we’ve all shared our opinions of our favourite (or least favourite) books! Writing reviews is often a hard thing to do, and can take up so much time! I’m sure you all know how to write a review, but if you’re interested I how I write my reviews, keep on reading!
At the beginning of this year, I set my Goodreads Reading Challenge to 75 books. The number is pretty much right in the middle of my two previous challenges, and it felt right. Then I slipped from one reading slump into the other and even my summer holiday wasn’t able to help me catch up. Since I’m about to go back to college, and my reading time will be much less, I’ve decided to have a good look at my reading; Will I be able to reach my goal?
I love bad guys in books. Especially when they’re actually just as sweet and lovely as cinnamon rolls. There’s nothing better than falling in love with a bad guy, right?! And then discovering they’re just the sweetest boys ever. RIGHT?! If you couldn’t tell yet, I really love a cinnamon roll who’s simply disguised as a bad guy. Here are my five favourites!
HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY to Sara Raasch’s These Rebel Waves! I can’t believe TRW is finally out in the world! Sara’s Snow Like Ashes trilogy is one of my all time favourites and I just couldn’t wait any longer to read more of Sara’s magical words. Since These Rebel Waves is full of pirates, shores and open seas, Sara wrote a message in a bottle to the main characters of the book. Here it is!
I thought about doing a book tag and found it didn’t exist yet. CAN YOU BELIEVE? Because I certainly can’t. You might’ve noticed my slight “obsession” with Queer Eye on Netflix. In case you have no clue what I’m talking about: Queer Eye is a make-over reality show in which five gay guys – the Fab Five – makeover (usually) straight men. Each of these guys have a different area of expertise: food, fashion. grooming, design and culture. I definitely recommend you check it out because it’s absolutely incredible. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen it yet, this tag is made to be fun for everyone! Read more
Hi y’all! After my latest posts, I went a bit quiet again. My days consisted of work, re-watching Queer Eye and waiting for my online orders to arrive in the mail… Yay? One package that wasn’t actually an online order – more like a repair – arrived today and it was my monitor! I could’ve blogged perfectly fine on my MacBook alone (and I actually did!) but just having this thing on my desk and having cleaned up my room has helped me so much to get back into being productive. I WANT to sit at my desk and working. Plus, the heat has toned it down a liiiittle bit, which makes me feel a lot better, to say the least. Anyway, here’s my wrap up, TBR, personal update & more!
Today’s post was a difficult one to write. I have so many things on my mind that I want to share with you guys but I just don’t know how. I don’t want this to be a rambly complaint kind of post! You’ve probably noticed my absence (but I won’t blame you if you didn’t) and I just want to try and explain why I’ve been gone for so long. I don’t think this will be a “fun” post, but I need to get this off my chest. Read more
