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 […]

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 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 […]

My Week of Reading #5

My Week of Reading #5

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 […]

My Week of Reading #3

My Week of Reading #3

Hello lovelies!  This week has been an odd week of reading, I’ve started a couple of books and haven’t been able to get into them, so I’ve put them back down for now until I’m in more of a mood for them.  That being said, I managed to read 5 books which is pretty good for me in a week.  I also went to the book launch for Unearthed on Monday at Dymocks in Melbourne, which was so much fun!  On Tuesday I saw Murder on the Orient Express, which I quite enjoyed.  I had no expectations going in, which probably helped!  I’m also cursing teenage me for unhauling a whole bunch of Agatha Christie books that I’d been given […]

My Week of Reading #2

My Week of Reading #2

Hello!  This week’s reading has been a bit of a mixed bag – not as many pages read as I’d hoped, but I powered through quite a long audiobook.  Also, I found that I was loving the audiobook so much that it was all I wanted to read, particularly when the other two books I read weren’t the most enjoyable reads.  I also finished my Melina Marchetta audiobook rereads, and I’m so bummed to be done!  I need more Melina Marchetta books in my life, and the next one can’t come soon enough.  So, let’s get into what I read this week, shall we?! Dates Read: 19 – 25 November 2017 Books Read: 3 books Amount Read: 801 pages (physical […]

My Week of Reading #1

My Week of Reading #1

Hi guys!  Over the last couple of months, I’ve been a huge fan of Booktube.  For those of you who may not know what Booktube is, it’s basically the name for vloggers who create content on Youtube based on books. I really enjoy watching Booktubers recap their week of reading, and thought I’d start doing the same here. I’ve always been pretty poor at posting traditional reviews, I procrastinate and procrastinate, and then I completely forget all about it.  I also never seem to have enough to say, or I have trouble getting my thoughts out in a detailed way.  Instead, I thought why not post mini reviews of the books I’ve read each week?  So, here goes! This past […]
