Journal Flip Through / August 2019

Journal flip through.png

Welcome to my new monthly blog series!

I first discovered bullet journaling in 2017, and although I loved doing it I never loved what I made for longer than a day. I’d keep going back to my previous spreads and thinking about my mistakes and it was driving me crazy. I decided to go back to it this year and to just have fun with it. Even the most professional at bullet journaling make mistakes, and that’s okay. I spent yesterday making my August spread and I’ll admit, I’m loving it!

Review: A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1) by V.E. Schwab

A Darker Shade of Magic

Author: V.E. Schwab // Published: January 19, 2016

★★★

Kell is one of the last Antari—magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel Londons; Red, Grey, White, and, once upon a time, Black.

Kell was raised in Arnes—Red London—and officially serves the Maresh Empire as an ambassador, traveling between the frequent bloody regime changes in White London and the court of George III in the dullest of Londons, the one without any magic left to see.

Unofficially, Kell is a smuggler, servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they’ll never see. It’s a defiant hobby with dangerous consequences, which Kell is now seeing firsthand.

After an exchange goes awry, Kell escapes to Grey London and runs into Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She first robs him, then saves him from a deadly enemy, and finally forces Kell to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure.

Now perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, they’ll first need to stay alive.

Stacking the Shelves (1)

PicsArt_11-13-02.30.53

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme created by Tynga’s @ Tynga’s Reviews. Where we get to share our enthusiasm for books by sharing the books that we’ll be adding to our shelves (physical or digital). So that includes physical and digital purchases, review copies, gifts, borrows, and everything in between.

I’m a bit late to the party so I’ll be listing the books I got in the last two months, and follow up from there.

IMG_6100

My #AGameofBooksathon TBR is here!

This readathon (like many others) has been in my head for some time now. I’ve never watched Game of Thrones but I’ve always wanted to read the books. So I created a GoT themed readathon. There is a group book which will be A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I’ll be explaining more as I go along.

If you’re interested in joining the readathon you can find more info, here. As well as the sign up page, here.

O.W.L.s Magical Readathon Wrap Up (2019)

O.W.L.s readathon has come to an end!

Wow that was some ride. This was my first time taking part in the O.W.L.s readathon, and it was amazing! I read so many books this month, but only some qualified for this readathon prompts.

My career of choice was Mind Medic since that’s the equivalent of Psychiatry in the real world, and that’s what I’m majoring in. I had a structured TBR but I felt really panicked following it so I quit that, and just ended up reading whatever I felt like.

For the career of Mind Medic there are 8 required exams. Without further delay, here’s my wrap up!

four Reasons to read the raven boys(1).png

As of recent, the book community has been obsessed with sprayed book edges. I am one of those people. DIY sprayed edges has also become something everyone is trying. I’ve seen so many pictures in the past week alone!

I never thought I’d try and paint my books. Like ever. I’m the kind of person who doesn’t write in her books. I can’t even break the spine! But I was tempted to try this, and surprisingly, it turned out perfectly!

I was asked to make a tutorial on how to paint book edges. So, in today’s post I’ll be showing you how to do that!

It’s March!

The months just keep flying by. February was a good reading month. I manged to read most of what was on my planed TBR this time. I never really enjoy February since it’s a pretty short month. It was a bit difficult picking books to read for March. I don’t always plan all my reads and sometimes I read books depending on my mood, but here are some that I’d like to get to this month.

🌟 Descendant of the Crane (April 2nd) has been one of my highly anticipated releases and part of my YARC2019 reads.

🌟 Dreaming Darkly (April 9th) seems like a face paced and twisted story, and I can’t wait to finally get to.

🌟 The Raven’s Tale (April 16th) is for me to review on The Nerd Daily. Edgar Allan Poe wrote some of my favorite poems and I can’t explain how excited I am to see how this book turns out.

🌟 The Tiger At Midnight (April 23rd) another read for YARC2019. Also an exciting synopsis. I have so much hope for this one.

🌟 Nocturna (May 7th) I’ve heard that this one is amazing by a few bloggers who’ve read it, and I’m excited to start reading!

Say hello to S.K. Ali, author of Saints and Misfits and Love From A to Z. I am so thrilled to be interviewing one of the most wonderful people on the planet.

I really can’t wait for everyone to read it.
