June is already here, meaning the middle of the year also is. So much has happened in the span of those six months in my life but with reading as well: I started my blog and the number of books I’ve read so far has been much higher than what I was expecting 🎉 I’ve already read more books than I did in 2018 which was such a surprise, in the best way possible. So when the lovely Caro at Bookcheshirecat tagged me in the Mid Year Book Freakout Tag, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to reflect on my reading in the first half of the year. This tag was created by ReadLikeWildfire & Earl Grey Books 📚 I’ve decided to choose only one book for each prompt and never the same book twice (even though I really wanted to sometimes). I hope you enjoy reading my answers!Read More »
When I saw Eclipse the Skies was available to request on Edelweiss, I immediately decided to request it. This novel is the conclusion to a duology and the first book, Ignite the Stars was so good, I was really excited for the sequel 💖 It was one of these books I was sure I was going to love with all of my heart. I was looking forward to see where the story was going to go, and how every characters’ journey was going to end. When I finished the book, however, I was left disappointed. I was genuinely sad about it, because I had not expected it. It had great potential, but sometimes the story and character development lacked the emotional impact it was meant to have. It played in several part of the story, and the end felt like a let down.Read More »
First of all, I want to say I’m sorry I haven’t been as active as I would have liked to these past couple weeks. Work has kept me busy, but I miss writing posts! I try to read blog posts as often as I can though.
Last month, Hannah and Kyle from But first, fiction nominated me in the Versatile Blogger Award, and I’m so thankful! I truly TRULY appreciate it, and I wasn’t expecting it at all, it was such a lovely surprise. Thank you so much to you both, and please go check out their post and blog, I loved reading the seven things they chose to share about themselves ✨ Writing this post took me a while, and in the meantime, the lovely Clara from The Bookworm of Notre-Dame nominated me as well which I was so surprised to see! Both her post and her blog are amazing, so definitely go check out her blog! Thank you so much Clara, it means a lot 💖Read More »
Red, White & Royal Blue was the novel I didn’t know I needed until I picked it up a few days ago, surprisingly being in a contemporary mood and having heard incredible things about the novel. I didn’t understand until about halfway through the novel why I was feeling that way about it. At first, I struggled a little bit with getting into the world I was presented with, because it was so close yet so different from the world today, maybe because I can be a pessimist sometimes. But after a while, I understood why I was enjoying it so much: it gave me hope. 💗

- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
The beginning of June has been quite slow reading wise for me, or at least it feels that way. I feel like I have so many books I want to get to, but a very limited amount of hours during the day to actually read. I started at my summer job three days ago, and I have been very busy. But I’m still reading, and that’s what makes me happy: I was worried I was getting into a reading slump, but I realized I’m simply tired. It’ll get better in a few days and I can’t wait for all the books I’m going to read this month.Read More »
