May ‘TBR’ | Moody May!

May ‘TBR’ | Moody May!

By now I’m sure most of you are aware that I’m taking part in Moody May as my enthusiasm over mood reading has led me to mention it at almost every available moment in my recent blogs! I had initially planned to take part in another readathon but I really need a break from structured TBR as well as the pressure of keeping up with reviews. I’ve noticed that the combined constraints of my TBR and stress of ARC reviews were leading me to read much slower than I otherwise would, leading me into reading slumps and all around sadness. Plus, sometimes books that had been patiently waiting on my long-term TBR list would one day call out to me only for their pleas to be read to go ignored…

No longer! Moody May is here to save the day and help me take a much needed, more relaxed approach to reading. As part of Moody May is to be free from TBR’s this post isn’t so much of a TBR as a “Moody May sign-up and list of books I might like to read” post.

WWW Wednesday | 30th April 2019

What are you currently reading/playing?
What did you recently finish reading/playing?
What do you think you’ll read/play next?

I managed to get a surprising amount read within the last week thanks to my last push for the OWLs Readathon and I’ve already made an early start on some of my May reading as its the only thing keeping my brain vaguely sane while I battle an essay for my Masters.

Wrap Up | April 2019

Wrap Up | April 2019

I haven’t done a wrap up since my January wrap up earlier this year, although I’m not really sure why. Anyway, April turned out to be a pretty good month for me reading and life wise. I had a great birthday on April 15th and then attended Easter Con over the Eater weekend which has helped to greatly improve my mood over the past two weeks. I’m still struggling quite a lot with a particularly nasty Masters report I have to submit soon but that’s for future me to worry about. For now, let’s recap on all the great April things ❤

Book Haul | April: 27th Birthday and Easter Con

Book Haul | April: 27th Birthday and Easter Con

I don’t often post book hauls, in fact my last one was in November 2018, but I got some really lovely books for my birthday on the 15th April and during Easter Con last weekend that I really wanted to share with you all. I’ve been really lucky and thankful to receive so many wonderful gifts as well as have the financial means to afford to buy more books this year, so I hope you all don’t mind me sharing these with you all!
