2021 Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag | Relishing the chance to scream about my favourites (again) + Showcasing a fraction of my huge 2021 TBR!

Hello friends!

Has the realisation that the middle of the year has dawned and past shattered your mind, soul, spirit yet? Because it certainly has for me.

However, instead of morning and mourning the supersonic speed of time, allow me to instead freak out over how much I loved my reads this year, as well as how my TBR pile towers over those that I have read!

Spoiler alert: I’m being dramatic, but not hyperbolic. (And yes, that was a reference to The Poppy War, ah the wonders of foreshadowing!)

Review: Skyhunter by Marie Lu | A YA Sci-Fi that is brutal yet brims with hope, a testament to Marie Lu’s storytelling magic

🌷October Wrap-Up || book blogging has given me superspeed reading abilities?? || ft. GIF-y Love #1

Hello fellow bibliophiles! October is going to be over in less than 24 hours 🚀, (I will now intentionally stop myself droning about how fast October went) but it has been an extremely fulfilling month for me!

I’ve conquered my end of year exams ✏️ (other students out there still facing it, you can do this! 💪), adjusted to the world of book blogging, interacted with so many new bloggers and read more 📚 than my measly amount in September.

Today, I bring to you my monthly wrap-up which I had so much fun writing and reflecting… especially with the new format I will be adopting. It wouldn’t only be about books read but also books hauled, quotes, blogging stuff and random life highlights! I have also linked a lot of blogs through this post for you guys to go check out!

Let’s begin, shall we? 👇 Continue reading “🌷October Wrap-Up || book blogging has given me superspeed reading abilities?? || ft. GIF-y Love #1”
