Hi Everyone! Yeah, that's right. Somehow, I managed to go an entire year spending less than £100 on makeup for myself as a result of the lipstick ban due to a knock-on effect on the rest of my makeup. I did notice, however, that I acquired a Very Tall reading pile that I haven't touched… Continue reading A New Year, a New Challenge: BOOK BUYING BAN!
Hi everyone! It's been a good month and a half since my last post. I made sure to take some time off after exams to chill then ended up diving into part-time work in a slightly drastic change to my routine that took some time to adjust to. I've managed to get a little bit… Continue reading Another Catch Up
Hi everyone! I am slightly behind on my reading schedule of a book per month. A lot of the books I have are actually quite bulky or read slowly and with university studies and work, and the hectic week before Easter, March was almost completely devoid of reading. I'd been making my way through the… Continue reading Books of 2018, #3: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
When I first sat down to write this I was thinking that this would end up being a very long post. This was because it seemed like my TBR pile had finally reached the heights of my G-Dragon poster. Then I realised that I could split the pile somewhat. I tend to leave my current… Continue reading My Current TBR Pile, as of March 2018
Hi everyone! Last year, I was gifted Red Rising by my best friend, Tray, and really enjoyed it. However, I'm really bad with series and often never pick up the next book in the fear that it just won't be as good. This is often why I reach for standalone books instead. I heard that… Continue reading Books of 2018 #2: Golden Son by Pierce Brown (and also getting to meet him!!)
Recently, I was putting all my TBR pile together to take photos and it was looking to be a very long post, but then I took the opportunity to split my pile up a little and it ended up like this. I currently am actively reading two books, so they aren't included here. The books… Continue reading Books I’ve Started and Will (Eventually) Finish
Neverwhere was probably my first Neil Gaiman book. Either that or The Graveyard Book. I read it years ago and I can't remember what I thought of Neverwhere only that there was a London Below and a Door and an Angel and that the book was Good and somewhere on my positive scales and that… Continue reading Books of 2018, #1: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (The Illustrated Edition)
I quite like how I am doing these posts bimonthly, so I think I'll stick with this kind of schedule for the time being. However, the TBR pile has grown more than it has shrunk, and I still have so much to read! I'm on a book ban at the moment because I don't really… Continue reading The March/April TBR
So, this is my attempt to tackle this huge TBR pile from the start of the new year. Red Rising by Pierce Brown [Goodreads Progress Updates] About: A miner on Mars harvesting an all important material to allow for the planet to be colonised, discovers that it has already been colonised by people who view… Continue reading Reading Round-up: Jan/Feb 2017
Christmas changes a lot as you grow older. When I was little I was definitely one of those kids who went through the Argos catalogue and pointed out what I liked. Then I noticed it was always what I wanted when I pointed it out to the parents, and then I became more aware of… Continue reading Under My Christmas Fairy Lights, because I was too lazy for a tree this year.
