First Book Haul of 2021

Technically, most of these books were purchased at the end of 2020. If you read my Bookish Resolutions for 2021, you may remember I talked about being more conscious and selective about the books I bought. For every book I buy, I have to get rid of one of my books. In this way, I'll … Continue reading First Book Haul of 2021

Books I’m Looking Forward to in 2021

I've mentioned before on my blog that I usually don't look forward to many new book releases, because I'm the type of reader who prefers reading books which stand the test of time. An overhyped book from 2021 may or may not be good, but a 2014 book which everyone still loves is probably at … Continue reading Books I’m Looking Forward to in 2021

Failing? Winterween 2021

Last week, from Jan. 4 to Jan. 10, I participated in the Winterween readathon this year. It's a challenge created by Oliviareadsalatte and Gabbyreads over on Youtube. The overall idea of the readathon is that just because it's winter and not Halloween does not mean we can't read some scary reads. Honestly, part of the … Continue reading Failing? Winterween 2021

December 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Finally 2020 is over! I look forward to starting 2021 with a positive outlook and hope for the future. December was a good reading month for me, since I was off over school for most of the month and so I could dive a lot into reading.

2,000 Pages in 10 Hours Readathon

I'm currently free from school for the next few weeks, so last week I decided to attempt a 24-hour readathon, trying to read 6 books, equaling about 2,000 pages. I've seen a lot of videos on YouTube of this challenge and really wanted to try one myself. You can probably tell by my title that … Continue reading 2,000 Pages in 10 Hours Readathon

My Semester is Over! +thoughts on school during the era of Covid

This past week was finals week at my college, which means I'm finally free from school! For month, at least, until I go back to torture myself...I mean, to learn more. But let's not think about that as I celebrate another successful semester! I wanted to do just a relaxing post discussing my experiences and … Continue reading My Semester is Over! +thoughts on school during the era of Covid

November 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I'm beginning to think I might stress-read. Despite being completely overwhelmed with school, I still managed to read 19 books this month. I mean...wow. That's not a massive amount for me in the summer, but in the school year when I'm working 8 hours a day on school? That seems like a lot. Anyway, I'm … Continue reading November 2020 Reading Wrap-up

So I Just Read 7 Beauty and the Beast Retellings

I've talked a bit on my blog about how much I adore retellings, even if the final product doesn't always impress me that much. Maybe I should than say that I'm a massive fan of the idea of retellings. And possibly my favorite fairytale is Beauty and the Beast. So it is not surprising that … Continue reading So I Just Read 7 Beauty and the Beast Retellings
