10 Books I Would Gladly Throw in the Ocean

Hi friends! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป I personally love the prompt for this week because deep down I am a cynical and pessimistic gremlin who really loves to complain. That being said, there are actually not a lot of books that I have rated less than three stars and even fewer books that I don’t have anything nice to say about. That is changing today because I very easily found 10 (but actually 11) books that I can rant about. Prepare yourself for some walls of text because this post is a long one. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by…

Am I Becoming a Mood Reader?

Hi friends ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป Recently I’ve been thinking about how much my reading has changed not just in my life but in the past year alone. I’ve always been a servant of the mighty TBR but thanks to reading slumps and changes in circumstances I’ve been straying away from the TBR and doing more of what I want instead of sticking to a plan. So the big question for me to answer in my usual rambling way is am I becoming a mood reader? I like having a routine. I have a tradition of setting four TBRs in a year, one…

My Spring 2021 TBR

Hi friends ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป Spring is almost here and we are almost into one of my least favourite times of the year (I am Squidward in the gif below). I don’t try to make it a secret that I don’t enjoy warmer weather because it makes me grumpy and depressed and it makes my eyes sting so the way I can stop myself from feeling too down in the dumps is by reading. Recently I’ve been really into dark things and I’ve been in a total horror mood since October thanks to 31 Days of Horror. I want to pull myself…

The Anti-TBR Tag

Hi friends ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป I’m easing myself back into blogging by taking part in theย Anti-TBR Tagย which I first saw from Caro @ The Bookcheshire Cat! I usually try to make this blog as positive as I possibly can, but I am naturally a pessimist so it feels good to sometimes just let it all out and give all of the reasons why I don’t want to read a certain book. Without trashing it, of course, because that’s crossing a line for me. This tag was created by Nicole @ Nicole & Her Books! A popular book everyone loves that you have…

My Favourite Books and Movies of 2020

Hi friends! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป 2020 was a weird liminal space of a year that can only be split into “pre-lockdown” and “lockdown” so trying to remember what I read and watched has been very difficult, but from what I do remember, I can pick out some favourites that I want to talk about today! I didn’t read as much as I usually would last year and that’s fine because what I did read, I really enjoyed. As for movies, I watched so many movies that picking five favourites was the most difficult thing. I blame 31 Days of Horror for that…
