I’m not expecting much from 2023. The past few years haven’t been the kindest and I just refuse to go into another year with stars in my eyes. So I’m just rolling into 2023 and just going with the flow. Let’s see what happens. Here’s a wrap up on my year.
Another book tag. I am a sucker for them. It’s not long now till Christmas. I’m not the biggest Christmas fan but I’m trying to enjoy myself more each year. So I thought why not find a book tag that’s like all those award shows. Pretty much every time you think of a type ofContinue reading “5 Days to Christmas: The Academy Awards Book Tag”
With Christmas around the corner and 2023 it’s time to have a look at my collection and see if there’s any I can let go. Make some more room for new books.
We’ve hit that time a year again. Where you look back and see all the books you’ve read and all the books still left to go and new releases.
I decided to do something different for July and create a theme to help me choose between my TBR books. I had heaps of fun doing it and choosing the books to read for each colour. I think I will choose another challenge for August I’m not sure what yet. But below are the booksContinue reading “The Rainbow Challenge/July Wrap up”
Below is all the books I read for the month of June.
Its officially national poetry month. And I thought the best way to celebrate is to share some of my favourites. One of the things that has surprised me over the past few years of reading is my love for poetry. Especially the dark and gloomy sort, that just speaks to the heart.
This year I gave the StoryGraph app a try out. And I have mixed feelings.
These won’t all be new releases. Just like a heads up. There are some books I’ve been meaning to get to for a while now. And I feel like next year is the time. So here’s to knocking down my TBR.
I have, officially, as of today read 109 books. I have two more to get through, but I highly doubt they’ll knock off one of these. This is a new record for me. Four years ago I could only ever reach an end goal of 60. Then last year I some how pulled out aContinue reading “Day 3- 12 favourite book I’ve read this year”
It wouldn’t be me if I didn’t do a booktag that’s on point with October 🎃. So here is probably one of many this month….sorry? Haha.

So this week I’m focusing attention on 4 arcs and hopefully October is a much better reading month then September. Where I only managed to read threeContinue reading “Arc-A-Thon”
I am officially another year older, but not wiser. Here is a lovely booktag I’ve seen everywhere lately. 1 – BIRTHDAY CAKE – a book with a plot that seems cliche but you adore it anyway Guess I’ll go with the woke up as the chosen one plot.
