We’re already a week into the new year, but I still need to give you my mini reviews for the books I read in December! This is going to be the last mini reviews post in this format because I want to try something new in 2021 (after writing 76 of them…). I had a […]

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.

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 […]

Mini Reviews: September 2020 (Becca’s Bookoplathon)

I don’t want to start this post with a huge clichΓ©, but doesn’t time go fast?! We’re already halfway through October and I still have to write up my September mini reviews. In September itself I only posted two things on the blog, including the mini reviews for August. I feel like time goes too […]

Mini Reviews: August 2020

August was a bit of a weird reading month for me. Even though I did end up reading five books, I was in a mild reading slump for most of the month. I’m still not entirely sure what caused it, but I think not having a set TBR might have had something to do with […]

Mini Reviews – July 2020

We’re already nearing the end of August, and July feels like ages ago, but I still need to write my mini reviews! I love that I’ve been doing it every month in 2020 so far, and I’m not going to stop now, so let’s see if I still remember my thoughts on these books… July […]
