Since then, I have pitched ideas and as of last week, had a post published on the site! I thought I’d talk about it on here just to give some insight into what I’ve learnt about blogging with others and what […]

How Ive Been Tracking My Reading Since 2017 2020 Blog Header - How I've Tracked My Reading Since 2017

Hai Spicy Hoomans! Electronic or Hardcopy? Many people choose Goodreads and that’s super cool if you are good at maintaining a tracker. I, unlike many, am not. Instead, I like to keep a simple manual record on my phone and put data into Goodreads when I remember to. I have an android mobile so I use a Google powered application called Keep Notes. You can actually download it on any device if you have a google account, it just comes […]

January 2020 TBR Blog Header - My January 2020 TBR Sucks!

Hai Spicy Hoomans! Yeah, I said it! I have been in a reading slump all December because I’d caught the travel bug which, if you have travelled, takes up a lot of your time and energy, leaving little room for reading.

Happy New Year & 2020 Goal Setting (wow all my posts are falling on the big holidays hehe)

2020 Blog Header - Happy New Year & 2020 Goal Setting (wow all my posts are falling on the big holidays hehe)

Happy New Year Bookaholics! A New Start! A strange analogy about the new year courtesy of my sleep-deprived brain: I don’t know about you but time in years feels like a roll of toilet paper. A new roll doesn’t really mean a new year, rather a new life event which can take place whenever. A new year just feels like I’ve ripped the toilet paper wrong, like those not clean straight rips that have a dangly bit to annoy the […]

Why I Did Not Finish Wearing Paper Dresses by Anne Brinsden 2020 Blog Header - Why I DNFd Wearing Paper Dresses (by Anne Brinsden) - Kind of, but not really a review

Kind of, but not really a review… The cover of this novel is gorgeous! The story sounds interesting and thrilling.
