WWW Wednesday | 7th August 2019

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

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

This past week I’ve been able to get back into blogging a little bit more as well as setting aside more time for reading post-YALC which has been making me feel much happier and more like myself. I’m feeling a little bit anxious because I still feel quite isolated from a lot of the blogging community but hopefully, things will pick up again if I can manage to produce content a bit more regularly.

Saturday Smalls | 3rd August 2019 | Appropriative Magic, Fascinating Algorithms, & a Kick-Ass Latina

Saturday Smalls | 3rd August 2019 | Appropriative Magic, Fascinating Algorithms, & a Kick-Ass Latina

I’ve been eyeing up Destiny’s brilliant Saturday Smalls feature for a while now but didn’t get round to introducing it on my blog until now given all of my unintended hiatus’ these past few months. Now seems the perfect time to pick it up though as I have so many books I’ve read that I never got round to reviewing so I’m hoping that Saturday Small can help me to catch up.

Each feature will include a handful of mini-reviews for books that I’ve read but didn’t get a chance to review at the time and once I catch up, I will then use it to review books I don’t feel I can commit to doing a full review for. A huge thank you to the lovely Destiny for letting me adopt Saturday Smalls.

This week’s mini-review round-up includes:

  1. YA historical fiction/magical realism/horror novel
  2. Adult non-fiction book
  3. YA contemporary novel

WWW Wednesday | 26th June 2019

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

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

It’s been a whole 3 weeks since my last WWW Wednesday and I’ve missed updating you all on the state of my reading and playing. June has been a little bit of a hell month for me as my partner has had a difficult time with surgery (pre-op and post-op) which has made things quite stressful and chaotic for me as well. Although I’ve actually managed to do a lot of reading and playing (escapism is a THING for a me right now), I haven’t been able to keep up with reviews, posts or any actual work.

Things are, hopefully, starting to settle down and I’ve been looking forward to posting up my WWW Wednesday today!

WWW Wednesday | 30th April 2019

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

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 ❤
