All the Books I read in February – Mini Reviews

In February, I only read three books, which isn’t a lot for me. However, I wasn’t expecting to read a large quantity of books, because my main focus was The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon, which is an epic fantasy novel of quite epic proportions. It took me all month, but I feel […]

All the Books I Read in January – Mini Reviews

As I mentioned in my final mini reviews post of 2020, I’m going to do things a little bit differently in 2021. I’m no longer writing mini reviews every single month, but instead I’m filming them for one big mini review video at the end of every month. However, I am aiming to write more full length […]

1000 Doors Readathon Wrap-Up

In November, I participated in a very fun event called the 1000 Doors Readathon, which is basically a choose-your-own-adventure readathon where you pick your next book based on what you thought of the one you just read. I had a great time with it, and I documented me picking out the books and my reviews […]

Mini Reviews: November 2020

It’s already been almost an entire year of mini reviews! I’m not sure yet if I’m going to continue doing these reviews in this format in 2021, but it’s definitely a very nice way to wrap up every month. Back when I started this blog, I reviewed every single book I read with a full […]

Mini Reviews: October 2020

I don’t know about you, but to me it feels as if the beginning of October was about three months ago instead of a little over one. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: time just works differently in 2020. A lot has happened since the beginning of October – both in the […]

Reading The Lord of the Rings for the First Time

For the longest time, ‘reading The Lord of the Rings‘ was one of those things on my bucket list that I definitely intended to do at some point – but definitely not in the near future. It was intimidating and seemed like it would take up a lot of time (true), so I just put it […]
