Reading Wrap Up: June

Literature

These images are taken from my personal bookstagram account Well, it was a matter of time before the inevitable reading slump got to me and it turns out June was that time of the year. Hopefully I manage to turn things around for July, even though the first book I picked up for July is a honker of a thousand plus pages (1376 pages to be exact), which I hope to finish soon. But who cares about July when I…

Reading Wrap Up: May

Literature

Images taken from my personal bookstagram account Here we are, almost at the midpoint of 2017, and I’m enjoying reading just as much as I did at the beginning of the year. Not to jinx it, but I’ve successfully avoided reading slumps and I’m ahead of my challenge which means I can now pick up heavier books. That being said, I do love an occasional adult romance novel these days, so there will be few of them mentioned here and…

Reading Wrap Up: April

Literature

Follow my book related Instagram @fangirlshideout Another month has come and gone and I’ve kept up with my reading quite well! The second half of the month took a slow turn for me and then I got stuck on rereading A Court of Thorns and Roses. But I’ll finish it today and continue on with the second book while I’m dreaming of the moment A Court of Wings and Ruin finds its way to my hands. Anyway, slow second half…

Top Ten Tuesday: Book Cover Varia

Literature

As I predicted, two weeks in, and I already messed up. The thing is, I got carried away and didn’t have enough time to prepare for these weekly posts and the result, I missed last week’s post. It’s fine though, I’m fine, I’m back at it and this week I’m sharing with you guys ten book cover related facts – positive, negative, random, anything goes!…

Top Ten Tuesday: Things That Make Me Instantly Pick Up a Book

Literature

When I started reading more a few years ago, I didn’t know I had any specific tastes for books. I might have known deep down but I didn’t, and couldn’t, actually acknowledge it before I had read a few books, you know!? So I kept reading and I’m still reading and part of me knows that I do have things that I gravitate towards. May it be genre related, may it be plot-point related, or a word-of-mouth situation – I…

Top Ten Tuesday: Most Unique Books I’ve Read

Literature

Here we go, week two of Top Ten Tuesday, and with the topic now fully book-related, I’m already sensing that this will become a much harder challenge than I originally thought. There is just no way I could think of ten books to fill up a category each week. As proven by the fact that for this week’s theme, I manage to think of five unique books I’ve read – which isn’t a good start to my Top Ten Tuesdays…

Top Ten Tuesday: Fandoms From My Past

Extra Literature

Ever since I’ve been following Maria over at Big City Bookworm, I’ve been amazed at her skill to participate in multiple tag posts a week. I mean, I can hardly keep track of one (Thursday Movie Picks) let alone two/three per week! Anyway, Maria is awesome, which is one of the points I wanted to make, the other is that ever since I started reading her Top 10 Tuesdays, weekly tag created by The Broke and the Bookish, I’ve wanted to participate but…

Reading Wrap Up: March

Literature

Follow my book related Instagram @fangirlshideout After a slow start to the month, I found some magical reading energy and powered through quite a few young adult romance novels by the end of March. It’s still quite sad to look at my reading list this year so far because there are clearly some strong reading slumps that I’ve avoided with easy reads. While there’s nothing wrong with easy-reads, I feel like I need to grab for heavier books and topics,…

Reading Wrap Up: January & February

Literature

Well, 2017 has gotten the best of me. Just two months into the year and I’ve already fallen behind with my reading wrap ups. BUT, I do have a legitimate reason for this little combined wrap up .. I wanted to revamp these posts but realised I didn’t have the time to do so, and by the time I realised I should have posted my January reading wrap up, it was mid-February and it made more sense to combine these…
