So it's time to see if 2018 was a failure and to test the limits of my ambitious nature by setting goals for 2019. I've been wanting to write this post for a while now so I'm glad I get to! I made some goals at the end of 2017 about what I want to… Continue reading goodbye 2018 and hello 2019. (looking back on this year + making new resolutions)
2018 was a strange book blogging year!I admit. I didn't post as much so my stats dropped by loads, I didn't read many good books if i'm being perfectly honest, and the year, in general, wasn't that great. But there were some highlights! And some downfalls. Which I'm going to talk about today! Let's goooo.… Continue reading 2018 WRAPPED UP IN BOOKS – A Book Blogging Year In Review (Delicious Pie Charts, Evil Authors That Make Me Cry & Favourites)
Hello, did you miss me? I mean probably you maybe did! It'd be nice to think people realised I wasn't posting and I'm sure some people missed me...right?! Anyways, the point...I'm back...FOR NOW! I'm using way too many ellipses why have I become a 40-year-old person texting. I've missed recaps and I've missed posting but… Continue reading a recap of a little chunk of my 2018 // it’s finally Autumn 🎃 (oh spooky!), plotting a new WIP + I haven’t done a recap in so long!
When I first started out in the book community, I was determined to like books that everyone else liked. And yes, I'm ashamed to admit, but if I didn't severely hate a book, and it was popular and well-loved, I'd give it 5 or 4 stars. I'd be generous because I would think that I… Continue reading Books I lied about loving because of the hype // I feel guilty but I’m exposing myself so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
May was a "meh" month for me. Nothing particularly GOOD happened. But nothing REALLY bad happened?! I think it's like May was a prequel novel to the REAL novel, June. I did a lot this month in preparation for next month so I feel like June will be so much more eventful!? I did read… Continue reading May Whispers // Lots of reading (!!), lots of studying (!!), lots of speaking out (!!) but not much book mail, oops.
I literally didn't know April even STARTED but here we are in May! I feel like I say this a lot, but I'm serious April came and went before I even acknowledged it existed! We went from April fools to now me enjoying my 3 day weekend because of Bank Holiday. Overall, April was a… Continue reading April Whispers // A Month For Myself, Disappointing Books Everywhere but NEW!! BOOKSHELF!!
March was a GREAT month for me! I kind-of drowned in book mail. In a good way though! I GOT SO MANY ANTICIPATED RELEASES and gah, I'm so excited about most of the books I received! Publishers are so amazing ❤ Initially, I thought I had a good reading month but then when i wrote… Continue reading March Whispers // I’m happy, legendary book haul, and i’m on a spring break!!
I AM TRASH FOR DARK AND WEIRD AND ATMOSPHERIC AND CREEPY BOOKS. And The Wren Hunt was exactly that. I am forever pleased. You know those books that are just twisty and wacky and dark and your soul just squeals in delight? Yeah, that was this book. I absolutely adored this book and I shall drown… Continue reading REVIEW: The Wren Hunt by Mary Watson // Creepy Premise, Irish setting (!!) and Marvellously Magical
January was a load ball of stress and anxiety for me. Maybe because it was the beginning of the year? It wasn't a good month for many reasons and there was a lot of pressure, starting off my Goodreads challenge and being behind, not feeling like blogging, and just generally life-stuff. So I'm hoping February… Continue reading January Whispers // I’m back from a small hiatus (!!), lots of stress + PENGUINS!!
So it's time to see how successful I was and prepare myself for a hopefully epic 2018! The year is already over?! WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?! I swear it was 2016 like 2 minutes ago. I am NOT ready for 2018 but also really glad that 2017 is going to be over! Like, I am… Continue reading Did I Achieve my 2017 Goals? + My 2018 resolutions (my year in review!)
