WWW Wednesday 14.04.2021 | Re-reading old favourites and then never finishing them… why am I currently SIX BOOKS???

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m giving you all a quick update on my reading this past week or so! I’m sorry if this post is low energy or a bit shorter than usual, and I definitely haven’t read much, but my insomnia is kicking the life out of me at the moment and I’m bone-tired right now. But, uni starts up again tomorrow, so hopefully I’ll get some energy back from all the walking around!

Not me re-reading The Raven Boys in the year of our lord 2021. Look, the pandemic is legit stressing me out right now and I just watched the first 12 minutes of The Martian and literally stressed myself out to the point of tears so I’m just going to sit here in my feels and re-read a comfort novel.

My Goodreads ReviewΒ |Β My StoryGraph Review

3.75 ⭐

I liked this one, the writing was cute and the characters were interesting but there was something that I didn’t like about it – maybe the contemporary setting??? Other than that, I loved the group dynamic and this was such a perfect dose of magical realism and reality! This was really really good and I’m honestly amazed at how few people have read it.

These coming weeks what I’d really like to focus on is, instead of overwhelming myself, I would like to finially finish the books I’ve started so I can get them out of my head, move on and finally pick up something new without feeling guilty.

BOOKS I WANT TO BECOME TV SHOWS

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! I feel like I’ve been a bit slack with my blog this year, posting mostly just reading updates so I thought I’d pull an old post out of my draft archives and see if there was something I could do with it now, and this is what I got! Today I’m going through a few books that I think would make really good tv shows! I love talking about screen media so if you like this kind of post let me know and I’ll make more of them!

WWW Wednesday // 07.04.2021 | Finally getting back into reading! πŸ˜πŸ˜

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with an update for how my reading has been going for the last week, and what I’ll be reading over the next couple of weeks!

Last month I didn’t read very much at all, compared to my usual reading rate. But, things are already looking up for April. I’m currently in the middle of my uni study break, so I’ve been listening to a lot of audiobooks which has been really nice. I also think I won’t be going into campus for most of next week, so hopefully my wrap up this month will have some good variety in it.

I’ve been re-reading a few books so far this week and I’m definitely in a good reading mood so I can only hope that my upcoming assessments for uni don’t completely plateau my reading mood!

January, February + March Combined Book Haul!

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! I haven’t done a haul in quite a while because I stopped doing them partway through last year when I pretty much stopped buying any books, especially physically. But, this year I’ve bought a couple of books, or rather I’ve bought a couple of comics, so I figured I’d show them off and maybe you could let me know which ones I should read first! I’ve also included the audiobooks I’ve bought just because I am primarily an audiobook reader so this haul would be real short without them!

Also comics are hella expensive so I really want to stress that these were all on sale and that’s the only reason I bought so many (or any) of them. Really, the only books I usually acquire are from the library or presents/audiobooks so yeah, this is an unusually large physical haul for me.

MY QUATERLY READING STATS 2021: January, February, March πŸ“šβ€πŸ‘Œ

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! I’ve gotten really into going through my reading stats this year and I figured that since techinically the first quarter os the year is now officially over and we’re going into April it might be fun to do a quick summary of the first 3 months of the year. Anyway, that was super long-winded way of saying that I’m doing reading stats for the first three months of 2021!

2021 Love/Hate Challenge ⇀ Favourites! πŸ’•πŸ’•

HI everyone, welcome back to my blog, today I’m going into depth about the books and movies Rebecca picked for me in March, following the theme of favourites! In March we decided to recommend out favourite authors and actors so she got a lot of Keanu Reeves and I got a lot of Michael B Jordan! This month Rebecca picked some real bangers, all out of my comfort zone so get ready to see me struggle! But, to be fair, I think I was a little mean with some of my picks too, so all’s fair…

Find my other reviews for our previous Love/Hate challenges!

Make sure to check out Rebecca’s wrap up to read her thoughts on this month’s theme!

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Last month I had a lot of fun going through my February stats with you all so I figured why not keep this going for the rest of the year? I think this will be an interesting experiement, especially during uni terms!

MY APRIL TBR // The month where I WILL rate something higher than 2 stars

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! 2021 so far has been completely crazy and very rocky in terms of reading, especially now that I’m back at uni. March was a pretty good reading month in terms of pages and quanitity but, most of them were 2 star reads so overall it was a bit of a mess and aletdown BUT I have higher hopes for April!

Fingers crossed I get to at least some of the books on my tbr, and that I rate them higher than 2 stars!

*If you’re interested to know my thoughts on a particular book , please do still tell me because that will definitely give me extra motivation to pick it up!

MARCH WRAP UP | Not a whole lot of reading, but a whole lot of uni

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m going though my March wrap up and talking about everything I read and watched throughout the month! March was a really busy month for me and I found that I didn’t have a lot of time to do much of anything outside of work and school. But, I’m currently in lockdown in my city and on top of that, I’m down to only 2 jobs so hopefully that means I’ll have at least a couple more hours to either catch up on sleep (which my Insomiac-ass really needs) or to do something that isn’t uni related. 🀞🀞

It’s been a long month and I’m glad it’s over but I have a feeling that April is going to be just as busy, if not more. I’m still going to try and post a couple of times a month – also look out for a super cool recommendations post i have coming up at the end of April because I’m genuinely so excited to chat with you all about it! I’m also thinking about gradually doing more tv reviews throughout the year, along the lines of my Glee season 1 review, so let me know if you’d be interested in seeing that! (and also maybe suggest some shows for me to check out?)

No tbr wrap up this month as I literally didn’t get around to reading any of them!

WWW Wednesday // 24.03.2021

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with an update for how my reading has been going for the last week, and what I’ll be reading over the next couple of weeks!

I think I’ve said this for the last few WWW updates but, reading has been going pretty slowly this month! I definitely think I read too much in January and February so now that I’m reading at such a dramatically slower pace my brain doesn’t totally know how to handle it. I’ve been too busy to read lately, but this week I’ve been in a determined reading mood and I’m finally starting to read more… though considering I’ve yet to read anything above 2.5 ⭐ I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. I’ve got my fingers crossed that I enjoy my reads for the rest of the month! 🀞🀞
