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

The road trip

September 2021 Book Wrap Up

September was a great month. I went back to Spain to visit my family, ate a lot of good food and came back depressed to find out the weather in England was still too warm for my liking. As this month includes the end of summer and the beginning of autumn, I read a mixture of summer and autumn books. Back in Spain, I felt like rereading the romance trilogy of The Summer I turned Pretty by Jenny Han, but in England, I wanted nothing more than to read a book that screams dark academia like A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik. … More September 2021 Book Wrap Up

Halloween movie calendar for October

Here it is! The best month of the year, October! One of my favourite activities is watching spooky movies on a rainy night, eating popcorn and drinking hot chocolate. So October is the perfect month to rewatch old creepy classics and to discover new films. And because I can’t ever decide what to watch, I’ve made a calendar. … More Halloween movie calendar for October

Autumn bucket list

Isn’t it crazy that it’s already late September? Autumn’s just started, I’m back in England, and I already have my autumn clothes out. But it feels like the weather hasn’t caught up with the season yet. The air in my town is still warm, most trees are still green, and there are no pumpkins in sight. Every time I look out the window and see someone wearing shorts, I get so frustrated. Where is my autumn? … More Autumn bucket list

Late summer diaries: Two weeks in Spain

I’m writing this post from my parent’s garden in Spain. It’s way too sunny and hot even though there was a big storm just five minutes ago, but that’s Spain in September. I grew up on a small Mediterranean island, where summers are too long, and winters are just mildly cold. I usually come back once a year to show my family I’m still alive. … More Late summer diaries: Two weeks in Spain

August 2021 Book Wrap Up

August felt so long to me. I went on holiday the first week of August, but it feels like months ago. I got drunk in a bar for the first time in two years, read ten books, got a haircut, Lorde’s new album came out, and I started rewatching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It was a busy month that felt like a year. … More August 2021 Book Wrap Up

My one year blog anniversary

Today marks the day when I decided to start writing again and created this blog a year ago. My first post was 2020 was going to be my year, because, in January 2020, I did something I rarely do, I had expectations. I had exciting plans and a feeling that this year was going to be great. But, God, was I wrong. I don’t think I should ever trust my intuition. I … More My one year blog anniversary

July 2021 Book Wrap Up

July was the month I decided to revisit YA, it was also the month when 90% of the books I read were from the library, which proves I should’ve joined the library years ago, and I could’ve saved so much.
month was a rollercoaster, it was so long, and the weather changed so many times it felt like I’ve gone through spring, summer and autumn in just 31 days. … More July 2021 Book Wrap Up
