I finally read some decent books for Uni // February Wrap Up

Hello and howdy.

I have some exciting news to share today … I got accepted onto the study abroad programme for next semester!!! I had the first meeting about it yesterday and sure I signed up for this but it’s still not fully set in that I’ll be going to freaking America in a couple of months! What the Hell!!

With this though comes a lot more stuff to add to my to-do-list which is why I’m in full blown productivity mode right now (please ignore the fact that I still didn’t get out of bed til noon). As usual though, I’m kicking off with some work that doesn’t feel like work cause I enjoy it so much: sharing my February wrap up!

February ended up being a much better reading month then I though. I didn’t accomplish my mission of reading “all the romance” like I said in my TBR, but I did read 7 and a bit books this month which I’m really happy about!



Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert – I was so annoyed with myself that I wasn’t able to squeeze this last book into 2021 but it’s okay now because I’ve done it. I’ve completed the Brown Sisters Trilogy!! This entire series was a banger, but this third book in particular was probably my favourite of the three. It was just so much fun! I genuinely don’t think I’ve ever laughed out loud at a book so much, not even just from the witty back and forth dialogue but actual events that take place had me in stitches. I was in a bit of a slump at the start of the month but this was exactly what I needed.

One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston – And here we have another book I’m so happy to finally say I’ve read! I ordered this book last year, around the time of it’s release, but it just never came and my order ended up being cancelled. It took me a while to read this, I’m gonna blame the slump, but I did really enjoy it. As hard as I tried I did end up comparing it to Red, White and Royal Blue, I think that’s just inevitable. It has the same fun and addictive writing style but is a bit slower and requires a bit more patience. The found family aspects were my favourite thing about this, so fun and wholesome. I wrote an entire review if you’d like to check out my full thoughts, but now I’m counting down the days til McQuiston’s YA debut.

Reading out of my comfort zone: classics & non-fiction.

Howdy and hello!

I have just submitted my first of three assignments. That’s me one step closer to being able to enjoy my three weeks break from uni where I intend to spend most of my time reading and watching TV.

Not only over the break, but also over the course of the year, I really want to read some books that are a bit out of my comfort zone: non-fiction, classics, and then just some fiction books that I wouldn’t normally pick up.

One of the reasons that always stops me from trying new things is actually getting my hands on the books. I’m not gonna risk spending money on something I might not enjoy. At the minute though I have access to to the library at my uni and I can borrow a fair few of these from there and I plan on making the most of it.
