One of my New Year resolutions was to write monthly book wrap ups again, as I did in 2021. And yet I already missed the January deadline, so I’m forcing myself to do it now along with February. … More January and February 2023 book wrap up
This month has been a weird one for me. We had an insane heatwave, I complained about it in a previous post, and we also had family over visiting from Spain, which increased my social anxiety and made me stress a lot about little things. Those two combined meant I didn’t read much this month. I couldn’t focus on words. I would read one page and then forget what I had just read.

I hate summer, but I love summery books. I love holiday-related books and summer romances, I get to travel to unique places and live through other people’s stories while I’m stuck in my town working all season. … More June 2022 Book Wrap Up
May has been a month of great reads. I read nine books, the most I’ve read this year, but that’s what happens when all the books are so great, that they don’t last long. … More May 2022 Book Wrap Up
My memory is terrible. I forget things a second after they happened. I can’t remember people’s names or birthdays. I don’t even know my phone number. And yet, I remember vividly every bad thing that has ever happened to me, no matter how small. … More Reading The Art of Making Memories
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 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
I challenged myself to only read romance books in February, but mid-month I had to add some thrillers into the mix because I needed a bigger distraction. … More February 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
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
