5 Star Predictions | On The Shelf

I thought I'd start yet another series on this blog: A 5-Star Predictions Book List! As the title implies, I'll be listing a couple tbr books that I predict are going to be 5-star reads. This could be because it's a highly recommend book, maybe it's because of intriguing synopsis, or it could be because… Continue reading 5 Star Predictions | On The Shelf

Mothers in Books | Top 5 Wednesday

This post was last week’s prompt— I missed it, but I still wanted to do it (lol!) Top 5 Wednesday was started in November 2013 and is a very much active group on Goodreads, so head over to Goodreads to join the group and keep up with all the topics for the month. I thought… Continue reading Mothers in Books | Top 5 Wednesday

What I Read In April 2022 | Monthly Reading Wrap-Up

I've been so behind when it comes to posting on this blog. If you are a regular reader, you would know that I have been focused on revision and my final exams, so I have not been posting as frequently as I would've liked-- hence why this Month Reading Wrap-Up is a little late (we… Continue reading What I Read In April 2022 | Monthly Reading Wrap-Up

Books New To Me | Top 5 Wednesday (May 4 2022)

I’ve been really busy with revision and university exams, so I have not been posting on this blog— or reading at all. As a result, blog posts will not be as frequent throughout the next couple of weeks. Top 5 Wednesday was started in November 2013 and is a very much active group on Goodreads,… Continue reading Books New To Me | Top 5 Wednesday (May 4 2022)

A Practically Non-Existent Reading Week | Weekly Reading Update (25/4/22-9/5/22)

Happy Monday everyone! As the title insinuates, I barely read anything this week. Exam season is coming up, so I've been swamped in lots of revision sessions, lectures and seminars. Unfortunately, I don't see next week being generous enough to give me some time to read, so don't expect much of an update next week!… Continue reading A Practically Non-Existent Reading Week | Weekly Reading Update (25/4/22-9/5/22)

The One About A Badass Female And Her Wolf: Scarlett by Marissa Meyer | Book Review

The title makes it seem like this is one of those paranormal/shape-shifting spicy romance books, but I promise you it is not— unfortunately...if that's what you're into lol. A little reminder that this book, Scarlet, is the 2nd book in the Lunar Chronicles Series. You can check out my review for the first book in… Continue reading The One About A Badass Female And Her Wolf: Scarlett by Marissa Meyer | Book Review

I've got lots of new books to look forward to this month, so please bear with this long, long list.… Continue reading May 2022 Book Releases | Most Anticipated

Adult Book Love | Top 5 Wednesday (April 27 2022)

A day late due to revising all day and having lost track of my "usual" posting time, but it's here and thats all that matters! The prompt for this week was a bit of a challenge considering I don't really read a lot of Adult books— so my choices were very limited. That being said,… Continue reading Adult Book Love | Top 5 Wednesday (April 27 2022)

A Leisure Reading Week | Weekly Reading Update (18/04/22-/4/22)

Looks like the reading streak is sort of continuing this week! What's funny though is I didn't end up reading the books I planned to read (see last week's Reading Update here). Just goes to show how much my mood affects my reading taste for the day. Not too hopeful that this streak will continue… Continue reading A Leisure Reading Week | Weekly Reading Update (18/04/22-/4/22)

The One About Choosing Between Duty & Love: Defy The Night by Brigid Kemmerer | Book Review

Hi, everyone! Today is another book review blog post— this time a YA Fantasy novel! This book first came up on my radar when one of my friends told me that this was the book that they were currently reading at the time. After reading this book, it seemed like this was all they could… Continue reading The One About Choosing Between Duty & Love: Defy The Night by Brigid Kemmerer | Book Review

The One Where They Fall In Love With The Same Dog: Rescue Me by Sarra Manning | Book Review

I've been having a great reading week this week, so expect a surge of book reviews soon! One of my favourite things about book browsing in a bookstore (instead of online shopping) is the ability to discover new books that you have not heard of unexpectedly. I love peeking at the books on the tables… Continue reading The One Where They Fall In Love With The Same Dog: Rescue Me by Sarra Manning | Book Review

Books That Surprised Me | Top 5 Wednesday (April 20 2022)

The One About Ex-High School Rivals: The Reunion by Elizabeth Drummond | Book Review

One of the best things about NetGalley is getting to explore and discover books that you have never come across before! Sometimes those books become your new favourites, and other times they don't end up meeting your expectations. This book was one of them. The Reunion by Elizabeth Drummond Format: ebook, 298 pages Expected Publication: June 10th… Continue reading The One About Ex-High School Rivals: The Reunion by Elizabeth Drummond | Book Review

The One That May Have Instigated A Fear Of Flights: Falling by T.J Newman | Book Review

I remember scrolling through one of my Goodreads group discussion pages and seeing someone recommend this book. I forgot what is was exactly that made me click the link to the book's page, but I did. The book's synopsis immediately had me gripped— so much so that I immediately went onto Waterstones to see if… Continue reading The One That May Have Instigated A Fear Of Flights: Falling by T.J Newman | Book Review

Books About Books | Book Recommendations

As a book lover, I love reading books (duh!) So imagine my delight when I discovered books about books. There is a whole section in Waterstones (my go-to bookstore) classed as non-fiction books that contain collections of book recommendations that cater to all types of categories. I assume these books are for readers who want… Continue reading Books About Books | Book Recommendations

The Best Reading Week In A While | Weekly Reading Update

This week has been one of the best reading weeks in a while...a long while. Not only have I read a few more books than usual, BUT all the reads have been great reads! The lowest rating this week is a 3 star, which is still a good, solid rating in general. Hopefully this successful… Continue reading The Best Reading Week In A While | Weekly Reading Update

Books I Bought In February & March 2022 | New On The Bookshelf

I don't think I have ever done a book haul on this blog, which is weird because I love book hauls. I'm a pretty nosy person (please tell me I'm not alone lol!), so I love seeing what new books other people have recently purchased. Book hauls are also a great way to discover new… Continue reading Books I Bought In February & March 2022 | New On The Bookshelf

A Week of Ebooks | Weekly Reading Re-cap | (27/03/22-04/04/2022)

We are officially in the month of April! How exciting! It's so crazy how quickly the days have been moving lately. It could be because I've been busy these days and despite trying to keep up with so many things; 24 hours in one day does not seem to be enough. That being said, there… Continue reading A Week of Ebooks | Weekly Reading Re-cap | (27/03/22-04/04/2022)

The One With The Dreamiest Fisherman: Hook, Line, and Sinker by Tessa Bailey | Book Review

For some reason, I've been reading quite a few romances lately (not that I'm complaining!) and while I was browsing the Kindle store for a new romance book to read, this gem popped up. I've read Tessa Bailey's book, It Happened One Summer, and really (!!!) enjoyed the book as you could see from my… Continue reading The One With The Dreamiest Fisherman: Hook, Line, and Sinker by Tessa Bailey | Book Review
