July ’21 | Wrap Up

So, this month, I’ve been mixing things up a little, trying to balance out my rereads and my first time reads, which I think I’ve been quite successful with. There’s been so many great reads this month, revisiting old characters and meeting new ones, and I’m so happy with how my Reading Challenge is looking!

2020 | (Yearly) Wrap Up

It’s that time of year again, guys, it’s the yearly Wrap Up! So, every year since creating this blog I’ve done things differently, namely due to the size of this post and how taxing it is to write. However, this year I’m going to try and minimise the size of it and focus on what’s the most important things to talk about: my love for books and my Goodreads goal. So, I’m not going to link every single post I’ve made this year, that’ll take way too long, but I’m going to include a few highlights from each. Anyways, onto the post!

Top Five Tuesday | Best Reads of 2020 (So Far)

This post has been a long time coming, initially planning on writing it in August, but felt that as I was nearly at the end of my Goodreads Reading Challenge, it would be more fitting to do it now. With only three books left to read to meet my goal of 65 books this year, now would be the perfect time to write it.
Now, I’ve done a lot of rereading this year, so I’m only going to be including books that I’ve read for the first time this year and leave the others for another post.

Top Five Tuesday | YA Tropes I Love

So, this month I’ve delved into a few titles that I wouldn’t usually explore, such as Women’s Literature and Chick Lit, which has opened a few doors to me about tropes that are popular within those genres. As someone who has been in love with the Young Adult genre from a young age, I’ve discovered a lot about what’s popular and not within the genre and so I thought I’d compose a post about some of my favourite tropes within YA.

Top Five Tuesday | My dream YALC Line-up

So, this week was originally meant to be the week YALC (Young Adult Literature Convention) was to be hosted in London. However, due to current circumstances, it has been postponed until July 2021. It’s unfortunate, it being something I look forward to every year, but it’s definitely the best decision that could have been made at this time. Regardless of that, I thought I’d still celebrate the spirit of YALC in a blog post of authors I desperately wish to see on the line-up sometime. Each of these authors have a very special place in my heart and on my bookshelves. It was extremely difficult to narrow it down to five, but I’m very happy with the results.

Telling Tales | A Birthday Book Haul

So, it was my birthday on the 5th and my boyfriend and I went into Waterstones… The rest, they say, is history. I treated myself to a few titles, then proceeded to walk into The Works the next day and treated myself again. My bank balance is currently unhappy with me, but I’m buzzing with excitement! Here’s what I bought! Continue reading “Telling Tales | A Birthday Book Haul”
