10 romance authors I want to try out in 2020

Bookish Talk (7)

Hello friends!

So uh… you know how I am self-proclaimed romance trash? Well, I recently came to two realizations that aren’t very pleasant to me and make it harder to hold onto that title, which are as follow:

  1. Out of all my reading this year so far, romance makes up a whooping 8%, which is a grand total of two books. I’ve read two romance books in the past three months. And I hate it.
  2. I tend to circle back to the same authors and rarely if ever branch out.  Talia Hibbert, Alyssa Cole, Alisha Rai, Rebekah Weatherspoon, and a couple others. But that’s it. I mean they’re phenomenal, but I’d like to see what else is out there.

15 Series I want to read in 2020 – starting, catching up & finishing

Bookish Talk (6)

Hello friends!

Today I’m here to share with you a list that has been plaguing my thoughts and overwhelming my every waking moment because of its sheer size, and that’s the list of series I want to start/catch up on/finish before the end of 2020. Now, the list I’m sharing on this post today is considerably shorter than the one inside my brain (and hope it will alleviate some) because I wanted to keep this post reader friendly, so I gave myself some guidelines for these books to fit to make it into this list: Continue reading

WORD WONDERS’ TBR EXPANSION : Books with Aro-spec main characters |Aromantic Awareness Week

Tags

Hello friends!

I’ve been meaning to make this post for months upon months now, probably over a year. But then when I realized there was an actual Aromantic Awareness week, and thought it would be the perfect time to make a list compiling books that feature main characters on the Aromantic spectrum. Aromantic awareness week spans from February 17th to the 23rd so today is the first day and here I am with a list of over 30 books featuring characters on the Aromantic spectrum. If you all didn’t know, hello! I am grayromantic and hence why this week and list mean extra to me. Continue reading

To sum-up: January 2020 + February TBR

To Sum up (2)

Hello friends!

Is it just me or was this month endless? I usually feel like months pass by way too quickly but January…just…refused to end? But oh well at least work was decent and I got a good amount of reading done so it wasn’t really bad, just slow. Continue reading

My best friend picks my TBR… AGAIN!

Bookish Talk (3)

Hello friends!

As promised in last week’s post, I am back with another edition of “My Best Friend Picks my TBR”. Here are the original 2019 post as well as the wrap-up for that one. But the gist of it is that Laura basically chose 5 books for me to read throughout the year and I did the same for her. We’re doing the same thing this year, the only difference is that we’re going for 6 books instead of 5. Continue reading

Did I like the books my best friend chose for me?

Hello friends!

Around the start of this year (2019), my best friend, Laura from Green Tea and Paperbacks, and I had given each other 5 books to read during the year, in this post here, to 1/ force the other one to read our favourite books and 2/ see if we know each other’s taste in books well enough. So the year has come and gone (seriously, wtf?) and I’m here today to wrap it up and let y’all how good/bad Laura fared. If you’re curious to know how *I* did on Laura’s TBR, you can check out her wrap-up here. Continue reading

To sum-up: November 2019 + Changes are coming to the blog

November wrap-up

This post is much later than my wrap-ups usually are, but what’s new? I’ve become a mess who has no control over anything ever and has barely anytime for blogging anymore. More explanations below and at the end, so enjoy? I guess?

Stay tuned for the “What’s Coming?” section, I have quite a few things to announce hehe.

Hello friends!

Is anybody out there? Is anybody even reading this blog anymore?

In any case…I AM BACK!! And for real this time, I’m not disappearing out of the blue again. I hope. When I went to check what the last wrap-up I posted was, it was July…so this will probably be a lengthy one, go get yourself a warm drink, a fuzzy blanket and settle for a long catch up session. If you want to, that is. Continue reading

Down the TBR hole #5

Hello friends!

It’s been…uh…three or four months? Since I last did this post and let me tell you…since then, my TBR has gotten OUT OF CONTROL. I’ve added at least 30 books to it, if not more? And at this rate, I’ll need to do this every week to get it under control again. Rip me. I think I might start doing more books in each post? I’m at 8 right now but I’ll up it to 10 and see if I’ll do even more next time haha. There are just way too many books on my TBR I’m not even interested in, or that are doubles, and I just need to get rid of them but also…talk about them. Continue reading
