May Wrap Up

Helloo πŸ™‚ 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 … 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.

The Stay Home Book Tag

And once again my procrastination has come back to haunt me πŸ˜‚ It’s nearly midnight and I still haven’t done my homework or written today’s post.

Could I do these things tomorrow morning? Yes, but I like sleep and I know that no matter how hard I try I’m not going to wake up early and be productive so here I am.

Today I’m going to be doing the Stay Home Book Tag which was originally created by Princess of Paperback. I’ve seen this tag all over recently and I am still stuck at home thanks to Spanish lockdown so that’s what I’m going to be doing today.

Laying In Bed: A book you read in one day.

The most recent book I read in one day was The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith not because I liked it but because I had to write a report on it and I left it till the last minute so I knocked it out and got it out of the way with in one day.

Another book I did like and read in one day was The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman. Technically I read the first chapter the night before but that was just testing the waters before falling asleep so it counts. Continue reading “The Stay Home Book Tag”

Reading My Rainbow 🌈// May TBR

Hello πŸ™‚ 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.Β 

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 🌈.

Somebody needs to take my Kindle away from me // E-Book Haul

Hi, hey, hello and happy whatever day it is. I don’t know.

Somebody needs to come over here and take away my kindle. Or my mums credit card. Either one is fine because I keep buying a bunch of On Sale e-books and I’m going to end up with too many sooner or later.

I have a fun TBR planned for next month to help get some of these newly purchased books read but for now I’m just going to talk about what I got:

The first book of this haul I had to buy because my literature teacher told me to and that is The Talented Mr Ripley by Patricia Highsmith. This is one of the books I have to read this term. My book report actually has to be in by the 4th of May and I haven’t read this yet so I’ll be getting to this soon. I don’t know anything about it but I hope it’s good because it’ll make doing homework easier and fun.

Geekerella by Ashley Poston is a modern day retelling of Cinderella but it’s got elements of fandom and a food delivery truck called the Magic Pumpkin! I’ve heard pretty good things about this so I’m hoping for a fun, fast read. Continue reading “Somebody needs to take my Kindle away from me // E-Book Haul”
