Trick or Treat: Book Tag

At the beginning of the month, I was tagged by the lovely Bookish Pisces to do the Trick or Treat tag – an original tag as created by Bookish Pisces as part of Blogtober. If you’re not following her blog then you’re seriously missing out! So what is the Trick or Treat tag? You know those books that you’ve been so excited to read and were disappointed because they never lived up to the hype? Those are books that will be labelled as ‘Trick’. And those books  ...

August Wrap-Up

It’s September! Yay for cooler weather, cozy jumpers, and sitting in front of the fire with a book and a mug of hot chocolate filled to the brim with marshmallows! That is my idea of perfection. I love autumn and everything about it. This month wasn’t the best for reading – I only managed to finish four books, which I guess isn’t too shabby. Unintentionally, I had a bit of a red theme going on with these!

July TBR

  Can you believe we’re in July already? It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that we’re in the second half of 2018 now. It’s quite scary how fast this year has gone. Even though I’ve had a really productive six months, I still feel as though I have so much left to do this year and wondering if I can really fit it in to the next six months. This includes all the books I want to read. I’m so impatient that I want to have read them all already.  ...

My Reading Habits

I’ve decided to branch out a little bit and do something different to a book review so that you can get to know me – and my reading habits – a bit better. While this is a tag, I haven’t actually been tagged by a blogger – I saw this on Goodreads and decided to do it because it looked like fun and is something a little bit different. Who says you can’t do it if you haven’t been tagged? Not me! If you want to do it, you do it. I plan on doing a few  ...
