August Book Haul

Photo 3-9-17, 3 33 24 pm

Well here is my August book haul, better late (only by a few days) than never I guess! I feel like August was a good month in terms of both working life and personal life, and I was quite busy. I got into a good rhythm of reading after what felt like quite a while of never being in the mood to read, and it had been taking me a while to finish a book, when generally I’m quite a fast reader. Finally though I’m back into the swing of things and I read quite a few books in August.

July Book Haul

July is always a fun month for me, not only is it my birthday month, but it’s my boyfriend’s as well, so there’s always lots to look forward to. Needless to say, I’m sad July is already over, it’s been a great month with lots of time spent with friends and family which has kept me busy, but maybe August will be a bit quieter and I can get more reading done!

May Book Haul

Yep, it’s book haul time again! I don’t know what it is about May, but for me it’s usually the month I always forget about. Also, after having such a busy month in April, May was just really quiet. There’s not really anything that happens in May, in Melbourne the weather starts getting really chilly, there aren’t any public holidays, nothing that really makes it stand out, it’s the understated month.

April Book Haul

Photo 29-4-17, 3 00 28 pm

It might seem an odd thing to say, but I really enjoyed April this year. I had such a lovely Easter and it was just a good month in general, with quite a few public holidays and shorter working weeks. It’s also starting to get raining and gloomy in Melbourne, and while I know most people don’t like cold weather, I really love it. Rainy days always make me want to curl up with a book, and I’m looking forward to the colder months.

March Book Haul

Photo 31-3-17, 6 26 45 pm

I put myself on a book buying ban during March. I went overseas for two weeks during the middle of the month and wasn’t going to be able to carry books around with me, so there didn’t seem much point in buying books that I wouldn’t be able to read for a few weeks, also I wanted to save as much money as I could for my holiday. Enter kindle.

February Book Haul

photo-26-2-17-4-34-57-pm

February has been a month of big changes for me, with a new job and longer hours spent working, I haven’t had much free time. I have to admit that books have fallen on the back burner as a result, I just haven’t had nearly as much time for reading as I used too, and have mostly been to tired when I did have time. I think that’s to be expected with a new job though, and once everything settles into a new routine I’ll be able to get back into good reading habits. Hopefully!

The Diabolic | Book Review

photo-19-2-17-12-53-32-pm

I’d heard good things about The Diabolic so it went straight on my wish list. I ended up getting it for Christmas and could not have been more pleased when I unwrapped it and saw its beautiful cover. It was my second read of 2017, and I have to say I’m pretty happy with the books I’ve read so far this year. Admittedly I’ve read less than I would like, but The Diabolic was such a great read that I don’t mind too much.

January Book Haul

photo-31-1-17-4-28-30-pm

First month of the year is now done and dusted. January is always a bit of a funny month, it takes a bit of time to get back into a normal routine, and to remember to write 2017 instead of 2016. Like everyone else I’ve set goals for myself this year that include everything from career, home, travel, as well as book related goals, such as creating content for this blog and my Instagram account.

Best reads of 2016

photo-23-12-16-6-10-16-pm

We are now into the second week of 2017, everyone’s come down from their festive high and gotten back into a normal routine. 2016 is well and truly over, and now even Christmas feels like forever ago. I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling like 2016 just flew by. Now’s the time when everyone looks back on the previous year, reflects on everything that happened, both the good and the bad, and starts making plans for 2017.

December Book List

photo-1-1-17-2-38-47-pm

December is a busy month for pretty much everyone, and as much as I enjoy the Christmas period, I also find it quite exhausting, and can’t deny that I feel some amount of relief when it’s over. I would have liked to have this blog post up yesterday, but I just ended up running out of time, so it has now become my first post of 2017.
