May Book Haul

Photo 27-5-17, 4 30 22 pm

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.

Best reads of 2016

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.

November Book List

We are now at the time of the year when things start to get a little bit hectic. A lot of people get really busy with work or school, on the home stretch towards the year being over. There are Christmas parties to attend, presents to buy, decorations to put up, gingerbread to eat, the list is endless. Like all bookworms though, I still make time to pull together a book haul.

October Book List

02

I’m so happy with the books I got this month. A few were books I’d been wanting for a while and some are newer releases that I picked up. I’ve had a fairly quiet month in October so was able to get a lot of reading done which was great, and I felt like I got into a good reading rhythm.

September Book List

What a great reading month September was! Well, it was for me, and hopefully for everyone else as well. Not least of all because of the release of a book that has been highly anticipated by many book lovers out there, myself very much included.

July Book List

02

July was such a busy month for me, I had so much good stuff going on with birthdays and people coming to visit who I hadn’t seen for ages. It was a really fun month, but was non-stop and flew by so quickly. I’m trying not to think too hard about how quickly the year seems to be going, because I definitely haven’t read nearly as many books yet this year as I want to. There are so many books on my radar at the moment, and with some books I’ve been highly anticipating being released within the next few months, I’m finding it hard to stop myself from buying all of them.

June Book List

Photo 3-07-2016, 3 56 13 PM

I’ve been falling into really bad habits lately, I’ve been getting lazy with my reading and neglecting my blog, with the last few posts coming later than I wanted them too. It’s my own fault though. I find that in the colder months I become distracted by binge watching TV shows and spending way too much time on my phone instead of picking up one of the books that are waiting on my shelf. Something I’m really good at, that I’m sure a lot of people can relate to, is procrastinating. So I am going to work harder at keeping on track with my reading and my blog.
