Hey everyone, welcome to or welcome back to my blog! I recently went on a day trip to a suburb I definitely don’t spend enough time in, in my state and went to one of my favourite bookstores (The Really Good Bookshop, for any curious Aussies!) I make a point to go a few times a year and I was very much in need of a bookstore binge where I literally just walk around the store for a couple of hours (and I very much mean hours) and just scour the shelves for new books, and I really think I got some bangers. I’m literally so excited about all of these so don’t be surprised if they pop up in future wrap-ups sooner than later!Continue reading “All the books i’ve hauled recently! 📚🥰”

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.Continue reading “January, February + March Combined Book Haul!”
MY 2020 FEBRUARY HAUL
Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m bringing you my February haul! I am trying to keep better track of what I buy this year so, I’m hoping I won’t be buying quite as many books!

MY SEPTEMBER/ OCTOBER 2019 HAUL
Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with my September & October hauls! I’ve recently finished the school term, with the next term about to start! I’ve been a bit over my head with everything in life lately and have been getting exactly zero hours of sleep but the Audible daily deals have been keeping me momentarily happy. I’ve also received a lot more books than usual from publishers so hopefully, those reviews will be coming to you soon if you haven’t already started seeing them pop up on my blog!

MY BIRTHDAY HAUL! // YA GIRL IS OLD AS ALL HECK!
Hey guys, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with my birthday haul because ya girl officially turned 19 yesterday! 💃💃💃 I know I did post my big March & April haul yesterday but I was feeling a bit uncomfortable about how long it was so I decided to separate that haul from my birthday haul because two hauls are better than one, right?

MY JAN/FEB HAUL // Owned books, library books & movies!
Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog, today I’m coming at you guys with a haul! I haven’t done one of these on my blog in months since my massive 2018 Book Haul but this year I wanted to try my hand at hauls, while also including the books and movies I’m getting out from the library because I know I love reading library hauls! I’m also including the movies I’m buying because last year I bought a silly amount of dvds and I’d really like to document what I’ve been buying and when!

THE BIG BOOK HAUL OF 2018
Okay, so I know this looks bad. And, that’s because it is. 2018 was a ridiculous year for book buying, though I do want to stress that most of these books were either gifts for birthdays or Christmas or they were thrift store buys. Otherwise, I got them on sales or from deals, I think I bought maybe one book full price and that was just because I couldn’t find it cheaper at the time and I was really excited about it (hint: it was Circe).
I know that this is a big haul, and I will be the first person to admit that it’s pretty ridiculous. But, I do want to stress that a bunch of these I had already read before this year or I read throughout the year. If I unhauled any of these books that’s just because I got them from a thrift store and just put them on my mum’s bookshelf because I think she might enjoy it more than me.
MY 2018 AUDIOBOOK HAUL PART 2
Hey guys! Today I’m coming at you with part 2 of my audiobook haul for 2018! I definitely slowed down with my audiobook (and physical book) buying in the second half of the year because I wasn’t reading as much – and when I was it was mostly just physical library books.
If you want to look at the audiobooks I bought from January – June this year, click here!

MY LIBRARY HAUL | JULY + AUGUST 2018
Hey Guys! Today I’m coming at you with my July and August library haul! I know it’s only July now, but the books I have on hold are the ones I’ll most likely be reading in August (hopefully they arrive in time!).
You can find my May + June Library haul here!
Remember to click on the covers to go to the Goodreads page and let me know if you’ve read any of these books and what I should read first!
WHAT I CURRENTLY HAVE OUT FROM THE LIBRARY
ONE DARK THRONE
I have actually started this one. I’m maybe 20ish pages in and so far it’s pretty much the same. Though I can tell this one is going to be a tad more fast paced and that there’s going to be some epic character development, which I’m really excited for!
I think so far I’m going to have to take the book slowly because I’m only halfway through chapter 2 and I’ve already had to put the book down because of headaches.
INTO THE DROWNING DEEP
I am so excited about this book but holy cr*p it’s so long! It’s almost 500 pages long and it’s meant to be sort of like a horror set in the ocean and honestly, that sounds fantastic. Especially, because it’s written by Seanan Mcguire (she uses her pen name for this one).
I have no interest in westerns. at. all.
But, everyone in my Screen Analysis class is snotty and seems to be obsessed with westerns so I’m feeling peer pressured by evil people.
So, I figured I’d go with a book set in the same genre published by the same imprint responsible for Stalking Jack The Ripper (pls read it I LOVE).
If you guys know any good westerns (films, tv) that you could recommend, I’d really appreciate it!
I tried to listen to the audiobook for this a few years ago and because of the footnotes, it made absolutely zero sense. So, I’m really excited to read this in physical form especially since everyone seems to love it so much. If you want to be convinced to read this book just go watch a Piera Forde video.
WHAT I CURRENTLY HAVE ON *HOLD
*A hold is when you request something (book movie, cd, etc.) to be delivered to your local library so you can pick it up
WIRES & NERVE VOL 2
I read volume 1 of this a few months ago and really loved it so I immediately put it on hold and it still hasn’t come to my library yet! I think there’s only two graphic novels in this series but I really love the artwork (and characters, duh) so for once, I don’t think I would be sad a=about a series being a bit long.
HAWKEYE: KATE BISHOP VOL 1
I know basically nothing about this series but I know that I love Kate Bishop as a character and she’s a badass and I think I’m already in love with her???
TANK GIRL VOL 1
I love a badass lady and I love good artwork so I have high hopes for this. I really hope I love this as much as everyone else seems to!
This book is literally Space Opera so what’s not to love? I’ve heard this is basically Eurovision in space and that thought excites me probably WAY too much.
Just read this and love it:
This year, though, humankind has discovered the enormous universe. And while they expected to discover a grand drama of diplomacy, gunships, wormholes, and stoic councils of aliens, they have instead found glitter, lipstick and electric guitars. Mankind will not get to fight for its destiny – they must sing.

DO YOU KNOW ANY GOOD WESTERNS?
