April 2022 Book Wrap Up

April has been a hard month for me, and I felt like I needed a big hug which is what I feel when I watch Gilmore Girls or read Meik Wiking. I recently watched the whole show, so I opted for Meik Wiking instead. I love the way this man writes and how cosy his books feel. I know the cover and illustrations are designed to make his books make you feel this way, but what can I say? It works. … More April 2022 Book Wrap Up

March 2022 Book Wrap Up

March has been a weird month for me. I spent the first two weeks half asleep, high on meds, and the rest not sleeping enough. I’ve already written in a previous post about my surgery, so I won’t repeat myself here. I just mention it because it has really affected my reading. I’ve been unable to concentrate on a book for more than 30 minutes, which means I only managed to read five books this month. I know, I’m ashamed of myself. … More March 2022 Book Wrap Up

January 2022 Book Wrap Up

Being a new year, I wanted to focus on my mental health, so this month I chose three non-fiction books about social anxiety, introversion and how social media affects us. I also chose two books from Mean Book Club’s selection for their new season which has just started. I finished the month with an equally depressing and fun read, which became my favourite of January. Overall, I read seven books. … More January 2022 Book Wrap Up

My favourite books of 2021

This year has been long, but it has also gone by so fast I’m amazed we’re days away from 2022. I’ve never read as many books in a year as I have in 2021. Being bored out of my mind and having nowhere to go has helped me achieve the insane number of 90 books in 365 days. (It might not be insane for the book influencers out there, but it is for me, a mere bookish girl). … More My favourite books of 2021

November 2021 Book Wrap Up

I wrote a post about how I’ve been feeling weird this November, experiencing some symptoms of SAD for the first time. That has influenced the amount and the type of books I read this month. I couldn’t focus on a book, Practical Magic took me weeks to finish, which is weird because I enjoyed the story, I just couldn’t be bothered to pick up my kindle. Then came Eleanor Oliphant, which broke me into tiny pieces as I could see my social awkwardness painfully reflected in the book. I tried to fix that with The Comfort Book, followed by In Conclusion, Don’t Worry About It. But they weren’t much help, and my brain wasn’t in the right headspace for positive, hopeful essays. … More November 2021 Book Wrap Up

Spooky books to read in autumn

Autumn is my favourite season, and one thing I love besides the cold weather and the turn of leaves, is autumn books. These are books either set in autumn, have spooky and witchy vibes or both. I wanted to include a combination of books I’ve read and loved, with books on my to-read list. I mainly chose newish books, from the last five years or so, with a few exceptions. I’m obviously missing a lot of good books, but these are the ones I want to read this season. … More Spooky books to read in autumn
