May Wrap Up

Helloo ๐Ÿ™‚ Back in my May TBR I said I was going to “make May my bitch” and I’m happy to report that I more then followed through on that statement. I got some motivation back! I started being productive! And in the end I got a whole bunch of school work done and completed 10 books!!!

I set myself a “challenge” this month just to try and bring a bit more fun to reading and stop me getting so overwhelmed. The challenge was to read every colour of the rainbow, so a red book, a yellow book and so on and so on โ€ฆ and I did just that. It was actually a lot of fun and I’ll probably do it again in the future. This is probably gonna be long so I’m just going to start wrapping things up.

Reading My Rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ// May TBR

Hello ๐Ÿ™‚ I should be doing anything but writing this post right now because I have a bunch of school assignments due in tomorrow and I haven’t even started but talking about what I’m going to be reading this month is way more fun.

I’m feeling very motivated right now (as long as it’s not school related). I’m ready to make May my bitch.ย 

I’m allowed outside the house for an hour or two a day now without getting arrested which is nice. My baby brother turns 14 this month which is also nice but lowkey terrifying. And I have a great TBR planned out.

Last month I read a fair few duds and so for May I’m trying to spice things up a bit and bring a bit of fun back to my reading and so I’m going to be reading my rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ.

I’m being overly ambitous // April TBR

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog!

I’ve been umm-ing and ahh-ing about whether or not I want to make a TBR this month because I don’t know what to read! Actually no. That’s not the problem. This problem is that I have so much I want to read that I can’t decide what I want to read first.

My TBR is pretty long this month so I doubt I’ll be able to get all of them, although lockdown continues until the 26th at the very least so who knows. I’m only going to be talking about the physical books that I own in this TBR as well even though I do have a few arcs and e-books I’m thinking of reading.

How to self-isolate without dying of boredom // TBR ?? Kinda. Idk

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog.

Raise your hand if your country is on lock-down for the next two weeks and you can be fined for leaving your house without a valid reason! ๐Ÿ– Me.

Me and my dad went out this morning, just to the corner booze shop to stock up on the most important things: alcohol, and the whole time I was singing the song from TikTok “Don’t be suspicious, don’t be suspicious” and now it’s been in my head all day.

Basically today I’m going to be talking how exactly I plan to keep sane during these next two weeks. I still have class, kinda. My Latin and Greek teacher is making us do class for 2 hours over WhatsApp! This is the time we’re living in. But apart from that my plans include:

Reading so much.

My expectations for reading this month were low since this month was meant to be jam packed with exams as it’s technically the end of term. With everything that’s going on though I think I can probably squeeze a fair few things in.

I’m currently reading:

secetThe Secrete History by Donna Tart- I’ve been reading this for what feels like forever and I’m only 200-ish pages in. It’s interesting but so slow. I’ve just hit a turning point, I think, I hope, so this will definitly be getting finished this month.

The Goblet of Fire Illustrated by Jim Kay– I started reading this to ease my anxiety and planned to read a chapter a day before bed but I’ve been flying through this. I’m always so taken aback by how beautiful the illustrations are. Continue reading “How to self-isolate without dying of boredom // TBR ?? Kinda. Idk”

The Harry Potter Spells Book Tag

 

large (1)

Hello and welcome back to my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I thought I’d do a book tag, my first of the year.

As you can telly by the title I am doing the Harry Potter Spells tag created by Kimberly Faye Reads.

tag

Back in late November/early December I accomplished the impossible and convinced my mum to read the Harry Potter series. She came to love it so much thatย  she made me and my brother watch the movie of whichever of the books she’d just finished.

This year I want to complete my reread of the series which I started last year by reading the final 4 books accept after watching all my faves die on screen, I’m not finding myself all that motivated to pick up the books and read about their deaths. I’m hoping this tag will bring out my inner potterhead.

Rainy Day Book Tag๐ŸŒง

Yes another book tag! School is crazy right now and that’s seriously cutting into my reading time which means I have nothing to review/talk about.

rrr

The weather here in ‘Sunny Spain’ has not being living up to it’s name recently. I was literally locked out of school in the rain, about to be late for a really important exam yesterday and so I thought why not do The Rainy Day Book Tag?

This tag was created by That Bookie Continue reading “Rainy Day Book Tag๐ŸŒง”

Book Blogger Confessions Tag

 

large (1).jpg

Since this is my new blog I thought it’d be a good idea for me to start of by purging my soul with this confessions tag.

Which book, most recently, did you not finish?

35958849.jpg

The last time I DNF-ed a book was over a year ago now and that wasย  The Girl Who Wasn’t Dead by Samantha Boyette. I rarely DNF because most the time it’s a book I bought myself and book definitely aren’t cheap. I also like to see how much worse it can possibly get so I can successfully rant about it.

Which book is your guilty pleasure?

18296529.jpg

Definitely The Ghost Files by Apryl Baker. This series follows a girl who can see ghosts and I admit it’s super cheesy and cringey at times but there’s something about it that’s so addictive and keeps me reading.

Which book would you throw into the sea?

23591078.jpg

Paper Towns by John Green. I don’t get the point of this book. This was one of the first books where I was reading and was not having a good time. There are plenty of others I would throw into the sea but this one more so because of how hyped it is and I really don’t understand. Continue reading “Book Blogger Confessions Tag”
