JULY WRAP UP | acing the olympic games readathon! reading 31 books in 31 days! πŸ“šπŸ’•πŸ₯°

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog and welcome to my July wrap up! This month I participated in the Olympic Games (Percy Jackson) readathon and absolutely loved it! I started out the month in lockdown and then ended it in lockdown so I was pretty much exclusively reading and watching Freddie Prinze Jr movies and eating my feelings! I did also start the month with the soft goal of reading a book a day (31) and I actually succeeded so I have a pretyy good amount of books in my wrap up for this month!

JUNE WRAP UP | My Graphicsathon Wrap Up!

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! June was a weird month from start to finish. I started the month on a really strong reading high, literally fiinishing my first book by 9am on June 1st and then I was going really well reading on the bus to uni every day. But, then exam week hit me full-force and my reading came to an immediate halt basically until Graphicsathon started. However, I still think I read some great books this month and I absolutely read some new favourites during Graphicsathon which I’m proud of!

Also, even if I hadn’t read a single thing this month, I still co-hosted a readathon which makes me so proud!

So, I’m going into July with a really positive outlook and a lot of motivation, here’s hoping my wrap up is just as positive!

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 everything I read 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!

April Stats Wrap Up ⇀ 2021 Stats πŸ“šπŸ‘€

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 πŸ˜‚)

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.

APRIL WRAP UP // I legit had no energy to read because my insomnia took over this month and I turned into a zombie 😫 (sorry)

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m bringing you a shorter wrap up thatn I’d like but April ended up being a crzy busy month and I didn’t read anywhere near as much as I was hoping to. I had some uni assessments and some serious insomnia problems so honestly April was a tired blur for me, but I managed to somehow read 9 things throughout the month, so I can still scrounge up a wrap up for you all!

Also, just a quick question/side note. How do you all deal with feeling like you aren’t reading enough? I’ve been dealing with this for years, but over the last couple of months it’s really hit me hard, especially since I literally run a book blog, and I don’t really know how to deal with the pressure that I’m putting on myself. I know that I’m a slow reader with a short attention span but for whatever reason I still expect myself to read 15+ books every month and still get everything else in my life done. So, do you also put these pressures on yourself? And how do you deal with it, if you do?

*Also, another side note. I mentioned my insomnia in the title and I think I’ve mentioned it before on here but, I just want to quickly stress that I don’t want to see any comments about how if I’m an insomniac why don’t I just read when I’m not sleeping? That’s really not how it works with me. I had some serious insomnia flare ups in April to the point where I was going through 48+ hour episodes without any sleep (while also going to uni + doing assessments) and really I was a zombie for most of the month to the point where I couldn’t hold coversations or walk straight most of the time, so yeah… I just wanted to put that out there. ❀
