Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m posting a quick summary for the first four months of the year and showing you everythign I watched in those four months! I used to do these back in 2019 but didn’t continue them into 2020 because I was a bit too overwhelmed. But, I had a spare moment today so I figured why not! I hope you all enjoy this and maybe find a new movie to watch!
Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! I recently created a book tag talking all about new releases which got me all excited about the amazing books coming out this year! So, I figured, since we’re almost halfway through the year I’d talk about the top 10 2021 releases that I either need to read ASAP because they’ve already come out, or that I’m dying to get an early copy of!

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m going into depth about the books and movies Rebecca picked for me in April! Our theme for April was ROMANCE! Rebecca and I finally decied to recommend eachother some romance to read and watch, one we loved and one hated – the twist being that we have to try and figure out which is which! This month I was completely htrown into the deep end and out of my comfort zone, though to be fair I did the same to Rebecca! 😂

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming to you with a reading update for this past week and guess what? I’m actually reading for once! I’m finally starting to read more 2021 releases which I’m really excited about and I’m getting back into a romance reading mood which generally means I read at a faster pace and consume more books than usual!
I will be going away in a few days for a work trip so I doubt I’ll read much but I might take a manga or two with me to hopefully keep me occupied on the long drives! Other than that, not much is happening with me and I’m excited to see what I read next!Continue reading “WWW Wednesday 12.05.2021 | 2021 releases + reading romance!”
Hi All, welcome back to my blog! It’s Tag Monday and today I’m shaking it up with an original tag! I haven’t done one of these in a while and I have a few others in the works but recently I’ve been really wanting to talk about new releases, but couldn’t think how to without writing a review so I looked up new releases book tags but couldn’t fine any. So I decided to just make one myself!

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m fangirling about 22 of my favourite tropes / favourite things in books! I can be *really* picky with the books that I choose to read, and on top of that, the books that I choose to 5 star! So, with any of the tropes or elements in this list I could be completely thrown off if it was to just be upped a tiny bit, but if it’s the perfect amount than it’s most likely a 4.5 or 5 star read for me. I really am a picky reader which is why so many of my reads get a 3 star rating or somwhere around that, but more often than not, if a book has one of these elements, it’s going to get a really high rating from me!
Also, supringly, it was a lot easier to write this list than my hate list (coming soon!) so that was an honest to god shock but a good one!Continue reading “22 THINGS I LOVE IN BOOKS & 55+ BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS! | Weird books, bodyguard romances & soft magic 📚😍”

HI friends, welcome back to my blog! I wasn’t planning on doing a full review for this anthology but I was in a Shakespeare mood and I love talking about new releases so I figured I would do a quick breakdown of my thoughts on Dahlia Adler’s new Shakespeare Reimagined anthology that came out in March!
This isn’t a really in depth review because I didn’t take enough notes when I read it, but it does give you a good idea of what I thought of each story and the anthology as a whole (as someone who doesn’t typically enjoy short stories).

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! I’ve been loving going through my stats every month with you all so I’m defintiely making this a thing for the rest of the year! I’m definitely finding it interesting how… comfortable I get with certain genres and age ranges… let’s see how that changes throughout the year (hopefully a lot 😂)
So far 2021 is going really well in terms of the quantity of what I’m reading and I’ve almost hit my Goodreads 100 book goal, but if I’m honest I’m not enjoying what I’m reading and I think I need to go on a romance binge or something because I defintiely need a laugh of a trope pick-me-up to put a smile on my face. Anyone have any romance new release recommendations?
You can find my April reading (and move/tv) wrap up here! I always go through all the books I read throughout the month, as well as asny of the movies or tv shows I watched.

Hi friends, welcome to my blog! So, March and April were a bit messy and I didn’t read many books that I rated above 2.5 stars but it’s a new month and I have faith that I’m going to read some truly fantastic books! I have a few buddy reads lined up with Rebecca that I’m really excited for and I also have some older titles that I’ve been meaning to pick up for YEARS so I have my fingers crossed that I’ll enjoy them!
*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!Continue reading “MAY TBR | 🤞🤞 Classics and 2021 Releases! (will i finally rate something above 2.5 stars?)”
