February Reading Wrap Up (2023)

Can you believe February has come to an end already? We’ll be half way through the year before we know it. February was a really busy month for me life wise so I didn’t really read that much. I did read quite a few books and most of them were good so I’m definitely not complaining. I hope you all had a good reading month and do share with me your thoughts on these reads if you’ve read them or let me know what you read last month.

January Reading Wrap Up (2023)

Our first wrap up of the year! Let me tell you, January was the best reading month (so far). January was all about mood reading. I literally picked up whatever I fancied in the moment which was…eclectic. I jumped from romance to horror to thriller all within a few days of each other. It doesn’t feel like reading out of my comfort zone anymore. This literally feels like the norm for me now. My reading taste changed about two years ago so I’ve been discovering a lot of my new reading interests since then. Keep reading to see what I picked up last month! (and do tell me how your reading month was <3)

Book Review | Happy Place by Emily Henry

Happy Place

Author: Emily Henry | Release Date: April 25, 2023




A couple who broke up months ago make a pact to pretend to still be together for their annual weeklong vacation with their best friends in this glittering and wise new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Emily Henry.

Harriet and Wyn have been the perfect couple since they met in college—they go together like salt and pepper, honey and tea, lobster and rolls. Except, now—for reasons they’re still not discussing—they don’t.

They broke up six months ago. And still haven’t told their best friends.

Which is how they find themselves sharing the largest bedroom at the Maine cottage that has been their friend group’s yearly getaway for the last decade. Their annual respite from the world, where for one vibrant, blue week they leave behind their daily lives; have copious amounts of cheese, wine, and seafood; and soak up the salty coastal air with the people who understand them most.

Only this year, Harriet and Wyn are lying through their teeth while trying not to notice how desperately they still want each other. Because the cottage is for sale and this is the last week they’ll all have together in this place. They can’t stand to break their friends’ hearts, and so they’ll play their parts. Harriet will be the driven surgical resident who never starts a fight, and Wyn will be the laid-back charmer who never lets the cracks show. It’s a flawless plan (if you look at it from a great distance and through a pair of sunscreen-smeared sunglasses). After years of being in love, how hard can it be to fake it for one week…in front of those who know you best?

2022 Wrap Up | 2022 Favourites and 2023 Goals

Happy new year everybody! The last few months have been such an expereince. I’ve gone through some big life changes in the span of three months. I feel like the year went by quickly but that it also took so long for us to get here. Does that make sense? anyway, I read a lot of books that I really enjoyed this year. I was going for quality over quantity again this year so my Goodreads challenge was set to 1 book. I’ve found my reading to be a lot more enjoyable that way and not worrying about reaching a set goal has been a blessing.

Horror Movie Journey | All the horror movies I’ve watched so far + my thoughts

One of those posts that I never thought I would write. You know, for someone who has always loved spooky and creepy things, I don’t know why it took me this long to get into horror. In a way, I’m not really upset by it. I believe we all discover things at the right time and horror happened to be something I discovered I loved about a year and a half ago. Would I have appreciated horror if I had found it sooner? I don’t know, but I’m happy with how it turned out regardless.

I’ve decided that every few months I’m going to write a post with all the horror movies I’ve seen since I last posted. Just to keep you in the loop as I continue my horror movie journey. Read on to see all the movies I’ve seen so far, along with a little of my thoughts!

Book Review | The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley

The Hunting Party

Author: Lucy Foley // Published: December 3, 2018



Everyone’s invited…everyone’s a suspect…

During the languid days of the Christmas break, a group of thirtysomething friends from Oxford meet to welcome in the New Year together, a tradition they began as students ten years ago. For this vacation, they’ve chosen an idyllic and isolated estate in the Scottish Highlands—the perfect place to get away and unwind by themselves.

The trip begins innocently enough: admiring the stunning if foreboding scenery, champagne in front of a crackling fire, and reminiscences about the past. But after a decade, the weight of secret resentments has grown too heavy for the group’s tenuous nostalgia to bear. Amid the boisterous revelry of New Year’s Eve, the cord holding them together snaps, just as a historic blizzard seals the lodge off from the outside world.

Two days later, on New Year’s Day, one of them is dead. . . and another of them did it.

Keep your friends close, the old adage says. But how close is too close?

Show Review | Wednesday (2022)


I couldn’t pass up on the chance to write my thought about the new Netflix tv series, Wednesday! I’ll admit, when it comes to keeping up with new show releases I’m actually pretty bad at it. Shows in general. I definitely was not going to put off watching Wednesday. Plus, One of my favourite characters getting her own show and the show being directed by one of my favourite directors? Definitely not passing on that. No. Way.

Book Lovers


One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn’t see coming…

Nora is a cut-throat literary agent at the top of her game. Her whole life is books.

Charlie is an editor with a gift for creating bestsellers. And he’s Nora’s work nemesis.

Nora has been through enough break-ups to know she’s the woman men date before they find their happy-ever-after. That’s why Nora’s sister has persuaded her to swap her desk in the city for a month’s holiday in Sunshine Falls, North Carolina. It’s a small town straight out of a romance novel, but instead of meeting sexy lumberjacks, handsome doctors or cute bartenders, Nora keeps bumping into…Charlie.

She’s no heroine. He’s no hero. So can they take a page out of an entirely different book?

Ruin and Rising

Author: Leigh Bardugo // Published: June 17, 2014




The capital has fallen.

The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.

Now the nation’s fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.

Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova’s amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling’s secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.
