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”

Hello and welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m wrapping up the books I read in April. I didn’t actually think I’d read that much this past month but I actually managed to finish 5 and I did also dnf something.

So not all that bed in terms of quantity but the quality of what I read really could have been better.

April TBR

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I’m back again with a new month and a new TBR. I’m being ambitious this month but this first week of the month is filled with exams and my acne is not having fun right now so of course in the week easter holidays I plan on making up for lost time and reading a LOT.

The first book I plan on completing is my current read Goblet of Fire which I started re-reading last month and I’m having a lot of fun. I’ve got like 200 pages to go which I’m trying to finish inbetween studying.

Following my Harry Potter re-read I want to read my recent buy The Magicians by Lev Grossman. I bought this because I LOVE the tv show of which I am 3 seasons in. I’ve heard that some changes were made to the show but I’m really hoping I enjoy this series.

I then want to read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I’ve said I wanted to read this forever but I’m hoping April will be the month! I really want to read Carry On, especially now with the sequel coming out soon but I refuse to even buy it until I read this.

And finally of my physical books I want to read Heartstopper by Alice Oseman. This is a super cute comic and I’m hoping it takes some school stress away and help with the whole acne situation happening on my face.

I then seriously need to get to some ARCs this month and these are the three I think I’ll get to.

Again but Better by Christine Riccio, this is highly anticipated read for many people and I was super lucky to be accepted for an early digital copy. I’m nervous but excited for this.

The War Blog by Glen Sobey, all I know about this is that it’s got some feminist themes. I haven’t seen great reviews for this but I’m gonna hold onto hope that I enjoy this.

You Can Change the World by Margaret Rooke, this is a collection of 50 stories of badass people. I love the cover of this so much.

I don’t know whether these will be the ARCs I get to, I do have my eye on a few others but who knows?

black-and-white-flowers-tumblr-transparent-12I’m really hoping for a good reading month this April, I’m really looking forward to spending a week sleeping and reading.
