My Week of Reading #10

My Week of Reading #10

This week has been a pretty good reading week!  I read 4 books, although I DNFed one of them, but aside from that I really enjoyed what I read.  I also went to my first book club meet up for the FYA Book Club here in Melbourne, and I had a fantastic time.  I didn’t know anyone there but they were all so welcoming and friendly, plus it was great to talk about books!  I’ve been wanting to join a book club for a while, and I’m hoping that this will be the one for me 🙂 Let’s get into what I read this week, shall we?! Dates Read: 11 – 17 February 2018 Books Read: 4 books (including 1 […]

My Week of Reading #9

My Week of Reading #9

What a week it’s been, so many ups and downs!  Had something awesome happen in my personal life, which I can’t really talk about because it’s not 100% confirmed yet, but I’m super excited about it.  On the flip side, I had a super traumatic week at work which has taken a bit of time to shake off – work itself is great and the team I work with are amazing humans, they’ve all been super supportive which really helps.  That being said, I haven’t really been in a mood to read much and I keep jumping around from book to book without settling into anything.  At least I managed to read 2 novels and 1 short story, which is […]

Hi friends!  This has actually been a great reading week for me, quality wise – nothing below a 4 star rating.  Can’t complain about that.  I also finally saw The Last Jedi today, after watching the Stars Wars movies over the last month for the first time.  I know there’s been some negative reviews and I’m not fully across why, but I really enjoyed it.  Let’s get into what I read this week, shall we?! Dates Read: 27 January – 3 February Books Read: 4 books Amount Read: 1169 pages I just HAD to pick this up after seeing Love Simon last week – I was desperate for Leah on the Offbeat, but it doesn’t come out until May and […]

My Week of Reading #7 & Winter Biannual Bibliothon Wrap Up

My Week of Reading #7 & Winter Biannual Bibliothon Wrap Up

Hi guys!  My wrap-up posts serves two purposes this week, it’s wrapping up my week of reading and also the challenges I fulfilled for the Winter Biannual Bibliothon.  If you saw my post last week, you’ll know that I participated in the Winter Biannual Bibliothon from 20 January to 26 January.  All the books I read this week were books I read for the Winter Biannual Bibliothon, so I didn’t see much point in doing a separate wrap up post for this readathon.  It’s been a pretty great week, I read 4 books, I saw Aladdin the Musical and I SAW LOVE SIMON!!  OMG, it was so freaking amazing, I still can’t get over how adorable it was.  It had […]

My Week of Reading #6

My Week of Reading #6

This week hasn’t been one for much reading, the Australian Open seems to have taken over my life!  I also haven’t been in much of a reading mood, and only managed to finish one book.  I’m hoping that will change this week, and I’ve signed up for the Winter Biannual Bibliothon with a plan to read a bunch of books!  But for now, let’s get into what I read this week, shall we?! Dates Read: 14 January – 20 January Books Read: 1 book Amount Read: 320 pages As someone who is pushing 30 and living at home with her parents (although not for same reasons as Lucy), this book certainly hit close to home!  I found this story to […]

My 2018 Winter Biannual Bibliothon TBR!

My 2018 Winter Biannual Bibliothon TBR!

I’m a huge fan of readathons and I like to participate throughout the year to help me get through the books on my TBR. I first heard about the Biannual Bibliothon about 6 months ago when they held their last summer round – I’d just gotten into watching videos on booktube and it seemed like a lot of fun! I just knew I had to participate when they had their next round, and luckily the dates work for me. The Biannual Bibliothon is hosted by a group of booktubers, and you can find out more about it here. The 2018 winter round runs from Saturday 20 January until Friday 26 January. There are a whole bunch of challenges you can […]

My Bookish Goals for 2018

My Bookish Goals for 2018

Last year I didn’t participate in any reading challenges and I didn’t set any goals for the year – there was a reason for this, as I was spending the first 7 months of the year studying and also travelling for a month after that, so I didn’t think I could really commit myself to anything.  As a result, my reading was quite sporadic and a bit all over the place. This year I’ve thought about it, and there are some goals I’d like to set for 2018.  Some of them relate to reading, others to blogging, so without further ado here are my bookish goals for 2018! Read at least 100 books Every year I set my Goodreads challenge […]

Reading Challenges 2018

Reading Challenges 2018

I’ve signed up for quite a few reading challenges for 2018, in an effort to guide my reading.  I’m a mood reader, but I’ve found in the past that I also really enjoy participating in reading challenges throughout the year.  Sometimes when I don’t know what I want to read or I’m in a bit of a slump, the prompts help me to work through this and choose my next read. This year I’ve signed up for quite a few reading challenges, and I plan to read books to fulfil prompts across multiple challenges.  Also, I plan to do wrap up posts of my progress each month, which I hope keeps me accountable.  So without further ado, here they all […]

Oh, what a great reading week it’s been!  I’ve managed to read 4 books, which considering all the tennis I’ve been watching this week is an absolute miracle.  I’ve also started watching the Star Wars movies for the first time, which has nothing to do with reading but I’m really enjoying them!  But enough about that, let’s get into what I read this week, shall we?! Dates Read: 7 January – 13 January Books Read: 3 books and 1 audiobook Amount Read: 960 pages (physical books), 11 hours & 35 minutes (audiobook) One of my goals this year is to read more classics, and this was the first one I picked up for 2018.  I’ve seen the movie a couple […]

My Week of Reading #4

My Week of Reading #4

Happy New Year everyone!  These posts fell by the wayside towards the end of 2017, in the madhouse that was December.  I’m not going to do recaps for the last couple of weeks of December, if you want to know what I read fell free to check out my Goodreads (spoiler alert, it was a whole bunch of Rick Riordan).  But, in the spirit of the New Year, I’m getting back into it with my reads for 2018!  Traditionally January is not a very big reading month for me, it’s the month of tennis in Australia and I end up watching a lot more TV than I usually do.  I still managed to read a couple of books to start […]
