DECEMBER TBR | catching up with my ‘currently reading’ shelf & reading a book every day

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog! It’s officially December and I’m officially a week away from only working one job again and having some semblance of a life so I figured I’d quickly update you all with my reading plans for the month! I honestly don’t have any big plans other than reading as much manga as I can and just getting my Goodreads currently-reading shelf back down to zero to start 2022 off fresh. Also, can anyone else not believe that it’s almost 2022?? It really doesn’t feel like we’re about to start a new year!

NOVEMBER WRAP UP | Can I still call it a reading slump if I read 30 books??? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! So, November… what can I say? It was a hectic month where I was mostly working and I honestly felt like I read maybe two things until I went to write this post and it turns out I somehow read 30 things in 30 days??? I do think though, that most of this is due to me doing the Graphicsathon earlier in the month and reading before work during the week. Otheriwise, this would be a very different wrap up!

My Letterboxd Review

Hi everyone! Welcome back to one of my first movie reviews of 2021! I’ve been posting mostly tv reviews this year and really enjoying them but I recently watched Eternals and had some thoughts so I figured I’d share them with you! Don’t worry, I’ll be back to talking about books and reviewing shows soon enough. I think my next review will be Hakweye on Disney+ but of course, do let me know if there are any particular shows you want to know my thoughts on!

New Girl Season 1 Rewatch Review & Discussion | Rewatching an old favourite! πŸ˜

New Girl - Season 1 - Promotional Posters

Hi everyone! 2021 has been the year of tv reviews on my blog and I don’t plan on stopping!/Ive been loving reviewing different shows on Netflix and Disney+ but they’ve mostly been heavier shows so I thought I’d shale things up and review a comedy. I have seen the first few seasons of this show before but I was in the mood for a rewatch and I figured I’d note down my thoughts while I watched! Enjoy!

MY OCTOBER WRAP UP | 2021 | Reading all the romances! πŸ₯°

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog! What can I say about October? It was a pretty chaotic month. I started out by practically absorbing Christina Lauren books into my skin over on Scribd and then I had 5 assignments due all in the same week and then I ran the Scoobathon. So… I was a bit busy, but very very productive! That being said, I didn’t really read all that much! I had a great start to the month and then I read almost nothing until the last week because of Scoobathon. That being said, I only have 8 more months left of uni so I’m really hoping that I’ll be able to kick this slump after that all goes away!

You Season 2 (2020) Rewatch Review & Discussion! // This show gets better with every rewatch!!

You (season 2) - Wikipedia

Hi friends welcome back to my blog! I’ve been really getting into watching and then reviewing tv shows on my blog this year, mostly with Disney+ Marvel shows so I figured I’d shake it up a bit and rewatch and review a favourite of mine, You season 2! Originally I was going to rewatch season 1 as well but with uni I really didn’t have the time so hopefully, I’ll do that in the future. I will have a review for season 3 coming up in the next week or two though!

This is one of my favourite shows so I’m really excited to discuss it with you all!

TW: roofie-ing a minor (on-screen, she was saved), non-consensual photographs of drugged minors, violence, death, murder (on-screen), dismembering (on-screen), paedophilia, physical & mental abuse (parents, partner), being buried alive, PTSD
