Monthly Wrap Up | December 2020

Happy New Year 2021!!
This December was quite a hectic month for me as I attempted a 25 day Blogmas for the first time. Surprisingly enough, I actually managed to post everyday, and it was a lot of fun, so I’ll probably be continuing it going forward too! I read fewer books than usual this month, but I did spend much of my Christmas break catching up on TV shows and movies I’ve been meaning to watch for a while, so overall, a rather productive month!

WWW Wednesday | December 30, 2020

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words, and the purpose is to share what I’ve been reading most recently.
The three W’s are:
What did you recently finish reading?
What are you currently reading?
What are you going to read next?

Welcome to the final WWW Wednesday of 2020! As you may have noticed, these past couple of days have been pretty quiet on my blog, and this is because I’m just taking this week to relax and recharge after the hectic month of Blogmas. Reviews will be back up according to my usual schedule starting in the new year. Happy Holidays!

2020 Book Haul

Hello readers! Hope everyone is having a great holiday season! My TBR pile is as huge as ever, and Christmas hasn’t helped much. I’ve been book shopping more than usual this year, and finally picked up a few books I’ve been wanting for years now, so I thought I’d share my 2020 book haul with you, including the ARCs I received for review.

Harry Potter Christmas Book Tag | Blogmas Day 25

Harry Potter Christmas Book Tag
Blogmas Day 25

πŸŽ„πŸŽMerry Christmas!!πŸŽπŸŽ„
It’s the last day of Blogmas, and I can’t believe I actually managed to complete the entire thing my first year! I was supposed to round things off with a book review, but it didn’t feel nearly festive enough, so I’m ending Blogmas 2020 with another Christmassy tag based on Harry Potter, which is always a book that comes to mind at this time of year! I found this tag over at Book and Corner.

End of the Year Book Tag | Blogmas Day 24

End of the Year Book Tag
Blogmas Day 24

Good morning readers, and Happy Christmas Eve! For the penultimate day of Blogmas, I’m doing a book tag! I found this tag on Green Tea & Paperbacks and this is a tag I loved reading on so many blogs last year that I just had to do it myself this year. Now that I’m done with the majority of my reading for the year, I have a good idea of how many more I can get through in this last week and it’s the perfect time for a tag like this!

Best of 2020 | Blogmas Day 21

Best of 2020

Blogmas Day 21

Welcome to Day 21 of Blogmas 2020! This has to be the post I look forward to writing the most every year, where I share the books that made my best of shelf for the year. My regular readers will know that I don’t rarely rate a book above 4 stars and even fewer of those make this list. This year, of the 200+ books I’ve read this year, I’ve chosen 8 for this list. As a reminder of the criteria I use for this list, the book has to be published in the same year, I should have given it a rating of 4 stars or higher, with something that I felt made it stand out over the other books – and for once, yes, the books are in order this year. Without further ado, let’s check out my favourite books of 2020!

Most Awaited Releases – Winter 2021

Blogmas Day 14

Welcome to Day 14 of Blogmas 2020! I can’t believe this year is almost over! It’s been the longest year, but on the bookish front, we’ve had some pretty great reads. Looking forward to the next season, putting together this list of my most awaited winter releases (through April 2021) was easily the hardest one yet – there are simply so many amazing books to look forward to and limiting myself to ten was quite the task.

Books to read during Christmas | Blogmas Day 10

Books to read during Christmas

Blogmas Day 10

Welcome to Day 10 of Blogmas! I can’t believe I’ve actually managed to post for 10 days in a row, but we’re nearly halfway through blogmas! Today’s post was initially supposed to be my favourite Christmas books, but as it turns out, while my movie list is quite extensive, I’m not much of a seasonal reader at all. So this post is now a selection of books I love to read around Christmas time: some are festive others are just old favourites I come back to at this time of year. Many of these are children’s books, but somehow I find that these are the most fun to read for this season!
