Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog and welcome to my new 2021 series! Last year I saw the two Emmas on Booktube doing this really fun Love/Hate challenge and I thought it looked like a lot of fun and like a good way to get out of my comfort zone so I mentioned it to my friend Rebecca over @ Bookishly Rebecca and she said she’d do it with me for the year!
This is a challenge where the two of us recommend 2 books and 2 movies to eachother, one that we *hated* and one that we *loved* and then by the end of the month we have to guess which one the other peron liked/disliked and review them each ourselves.
I’m really excited for this challnege because while we watch similar movies, we rarely see eye to eye on books so I’m hoping this will get us both out of our comfort zones, especially since we have a theme for each month! January was 2020 releases and honestly, I had a blast with this theme!
Make sure to check out Rebecca’s wrap up to read her thoughts on this month’s theme!

Hi all! Welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with a wrap up of sorts! I’ve decided to try and incorporate more challenge-style posts into my blogging schedule since you guys asked for that. So, this month (these may not be monthly btw, I’m not BooksandLala) I decided to sort of test the boundaries around my reading since I’m usually very much a chill reader, and just pick up a bok when I want to. I wanted to test myself a bit but also try and moderately track my reading habits!
So, I decided to read 100 pages a day in March! That being said, how could I know how stressful March was going to turn out?!
I thought about restricting my reading to only 100 pages a day but that would mean only reading 3100 pages all month, and sometimes I just want to keep reading if I’m really into a book. The whole point of the challenge is to motivate me to read regularly (or at all) or to remind me to read every day, not to police or restrict a page number each day.
All that being said, I plan my blog content pretty far in advance, so I did forget I had this planned for the month, but I remembered pretty quickly, so this isn’t wholly accurate, but it’s pretty damn close!

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m doing a January wrap up and it’s gonna be a long one so grab a drink and sit down while I go through my crazy first month of 2020!
For January, since I had the month off from school, I decided to give myself a month-long challenge, to watch a movie every day, because why not? I wanted to see how easily I could get bored of a particular genre/actor and if I would discover any new favourites along the way! I made a point to watch some of my favourite movies and genres as well as movies I hadn’t seen in years or hadn’t seen at all, as well as film completely outside of my wheelhouse!
You will also get to see my eternal shame at how disjointed my taste in movies is. I also asked people on Twitter for movie recs [here] and I tried to watch as many as I could throughout the month! Also, fun fact Ratatouille is the dish, not the rat. The more you know, hey?

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog! I’ve been trying to be more spontaneous lately, but because I’m not adventurous and could not survive in the wild I’ve decided to try The Book Scavenger Hunt! The objective of this game is to hopefully find my next read so I’m looking forward to seeing how this challenge turns out for me!
Here’s the original challenge

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with a new series here on my blog, called “Catching Up”. This is going to be a year-long series all about catching up on the books on my shelves (both physical & Goodreads) that I feel like I’ve missed out on, but am making a point of reading now! These are all books I feel are genre staples that I’ve missed out on, as well as books I really feel like I should have read by now but need some motivation to actually pick up!
