screenshot 2019-01-20 10.28.02

Hello readers! I can’t believe we’re already halfway through April – 2021 seems to be flying by so fast. I have more books than usual on my summer TBR this year, so it took quite some time to narrow it down to just a few. Many favourite series are coming to an end but there are quite a few new ones too. Here are my top 10 most anticipated reads this season!

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.

Mini Reviews #13
Blogmas Day 1

Hello readers, and welcome to Blogmas! It’s time for another round of Mini Reviews, where I talk about some of the books I don’t write full length reviews for. It’s been a while since I did one of these posts! With the hectic posting schedule I’ve had these past months, I haven’t really had the chance to share my thoughts on some of the other books I’ve been reading, so I figured it would be a great post to kick off Blogmas! This installment, let’s chat about: Hench, Rebel Spy, Heartstopper: Volume Two and The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.
