Happy Halloween! It's the last of our 13 days celebrating all things dark fantasy with Spooktastic Reads, and I thought it would be fun to look at some of the things everyone got up to! I didn't end up posting nearly as much as I would have liked (one review, sigh) but loved seeing everyone… Continue reading A Spooktastic Round-Up
It's the end of April, which means only one thing... [insert gif here] It's gonna be May! And with May comes the joy of Wyrd & Wonder! But more on that tomorrow... For now I'm going to be looking back on April and how I somehow managed to read 15 books in one month, including my current Book of the Year.
March has been a weird month - I was in South Africa on holiday for the first two weeks of the month, and as I wasn't keeping track of days it almost felt like the passing time didn't count. I was very confused then, when I got back, to find myself in the middle of… Continue reading March 2022 Warp Up
Somehow, I have repeated my January feat of 10 books for this month as well, taking me up to 20 total for the year so far! I'm not really fussed about reaching a high target at all, but I think my desire to plow through the TBR and clear my shelves for new things has… Continue reading February 2022 Wrap Up
I feel like I say this in every wrap up post, but the last month has been both the longest one and also I can't believe another January has already come to an end. This time last year I was furloughed and this year I am exhausted from work - both have grateful moments but… Continue reading January 2022 Wrap Up
It’s the last day of November, which means my first SciFiMonth is coming to an end. Back in May, when doing Wyrd and Wonder, I said to myself I probably wouldn’t join in on the SF equivalent, because I’d only just read one or two SF novels and didn’t have enough lying around to be able to dedicate a month to the genre. But I had forgotten that I am an unstoppable force when it comes to buying books, and by the middle of the year I found myself in possession of quite a few SF books, as well as multiple NetGalley ARCs. And so, I have spent the last 30 days enjoying and discovering this genre, which is a great way to head towards the end of the year. I don’t have the time, sadly, to give each book the individual review they deserve, so I thought I’d do a SciFiMonth Mini Review roundup to look back on some of my latest reads!
This month has been a bit of a blur, and work has been very intense, with an emotional breakdown during the middle of a shift and a weird twitching that has started in my eyes, but it's over now and im looking at November as a fresh start - I'll talk more about that later.… Continue reading October Wrap Up
To be honest, I couldn't wait for September to come to an end, which is probably why it felt very long, but in terms of reading I think it was quite a good month! But before I get into the reading, the reason I was excited for the end of September was a little holiday… Continue reading September Wrap Up
August saw me go back to full time at work, which is why this blog has been a little quieter lately, as I only have time to dedicate to writing on days off, and my reading time has also diminished, though I do read most evenings and during work breaks. Despite that, I did hit… Continue reading August Wrap Up
It's a few days into August, which is my birthday month, yay! 25 here I come... I have some celebrations prepared that will involve a lot of pampering, food, and -of course- books! I may talk a bit about it at the end of the month, in August's wrap-up, but for now, let's have a… Continue reading July Wrap Up
