WWW Wednesday | 30th January 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

Top 10 Tuesday | Recent TBR Additions

Top 10 Tuesday | Recent TBR Additions

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way.

University Reading List | The Undergraduate Edition

This week has been really hectic for me so I haven’t been able to do much reading in between university and life stresses, and drowning my misery in my new Nintendo Switch… I feel like I’m making slow and steady progress on my ARCs though!
