How are we halfway through 2020? I feel like almost everyone will agree with me that this has been the craziest year ever and it definitely does not feel like we are halfway through. However, I did actually manage to read quite a few books this month so I will talk about them more in depth here.
May was a weird month. Last month, I managed to read so many books and I thought I was the sort of person who was reading a lot more during lockdown. However, May shows that this was not the case. I think this was definitely affected by the fact that I was fasting for most of the month but also by the fact that I was in full on dissertation mode. However, I am officially finished done with university and I am no longer fasting so I have nothing but time (still haven’t been reading as much as I want to but still). But anyway… this is a shorter wrap up than last month but here we go.
So April. What a month. A whole month in lockdown meant that on top of doing a lot of uni work, I had free time to read a lot and watch some films. Therefore, today’s wrap up is kinda a long one but I guess we all have the time now for this.
Today’s blog post has been inspired by my re-read and re-watch of The Hunger Games trilogy. I love this series and Finnick Odair is truly one of my favourite fictional characters of all time. But he deserved better. He didn’t get the treatment he truly deserved by Suzanne Collins. Therefore, today I am going to argue why he deserved better in both the books and films so prepare yourselves. Also this post is going to be full of spoilers for The Hunger Games so beware.
Maybe I’m going through a mid quarantine crisis but I looked at the entirety of my TBR yesterday and I didn’t want to read any of them and I kinda want to unhaul them all. Only 3 stood out that I wanted to read but they are all on my April TBR so they don’t count. So I am here today to share the entirety of my physical TBR with you and why I don’t really want to read them so if you can convince me to keep any of these, that would be great.
March was a weird month for everyone. It was the month that the Coronavirus overtook the UK, my university closed down, I left my job and I moved back home 2 months earlier than anticipated. So needless to say, I read a lot of books.
Hi guys! I made a very last minute decision last night to participate in the OWLS readathon, which is a month long Harry Potter themed marathon hosted by Gi from the Book Roast on Booktube. I’ve always seen people participate in it and thought it was cool but also a lot of work. The basic premise is that you pick a Hogwarts career which then tells you which subjects you need to achieve your OWLS in order to get through to the NEWTS which are later this year and finally achieved your career. I’m not a huge fan of TBRs but I (as well as everyone else in the world) suddenly have a lot of time on my hands so I decided to give it a go. I managed to fit my TBR around the books that I was planning on reading anyway so it’s not too hard hopefully.
Hi guys, it’s been a while since I did one of these blog posts! The lovely people at Penguin reached out to me and asked if I wanted to be a part of the blog tour for this book and obviously I said yes. I was so excited to read this book and I’m even more excited to share an interview with the author, Manjeet Mann, as well as a review of the book.
February is always a whirlwind month. It feels so much shorter and time just flies by, especially as it usually involves me getting back into the swing of things at university. However, I managed to get some reading and film watching done somehow so let’s talk about what I got up to this month.
2020 is a new year and a new decade. I am hoping that I will be able to keep up with the wrap ups this year so let’s start with January. I read quite a few books but not enough considering I was off of university all month. However, I still want to talk about them so here are my opinions on the books I read this year.
