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)

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?

TBR & Wrap Up | April Wrap Up

April has got to be my favourite reading month so far this year. I’ll admit, this year hasn’t gone the way I had hoped. I haven’t been in the mood to blog and I’ve decided to give myself the longest break. I didn’t want to push myself because I know I won’t enjoy blogging if I do. The fact that this is up means I’m getting back into the swing of things. I never posted my wrap up of the first 3 months of the year but I’ll definitely be sharing that on here soon. Along with a bunch of book reviews!

Fantasy and Sci-fi book series I want to read in 2022

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. My reading has definitely become a lot more diverse in that way. I’m going to continue that journey but I believe I need to pick up some more books in my much-beloved genre, and that is fantasy. I’ve made a list (as usual) of all the series I want to read this year. Read on to find out which ones are a priority.
