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.Read More »
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)Read More »
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.Read More »
Book Review | Book Lovers by Emily Henry
Author: Emily Henry // Published: June 4, 2013
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?

Book Review | Ruin and Rising (Shadow and Bone, #3) by Leigh Bardugo
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.
Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.
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.

Books I’ve hauled this year! 📚
When was the last time I posted a book haul? Ages ago but we’re going to pretend I do this regularly. Do I have some exciting books to show you! I’ve brought together books that I’ve bought and was gifted so far this year. I’m honestly kind of surprised that I’ve only bought seven books so far this year. I mean seven books in five months is actually pretty good (gifted books aside). Then again my birthday is coming up so I might add another two or three to the shelves but for now here it is. Read on if you’re at all curious about what I got!Read More »

Welcome back to the blog! So last year was a great reading year. My reading tastes expanded and I read some books that I really never thought I’d pick up.
