Monthly Wrap Ups

Contemporary-A-Thon Wrap Up – I think we can call it a success

month wrap up final

^ lowkey bothering me that it says “monthly” wrap up when this is a week wrap up but im too tired to make a whole new picture for a single post, moving on

the contemporary-a-thon was held between 17th of sept. till the 23rd and it was so much fun to participate in. I was able to read so many fantastic books that i’ve been meaning to get to and who doesn’t love a good contemporary (the answer is no one)

I read a total of 9 books. 4 physical books 📕, 3 e-books 📱, and 2 audiobooks 🎧
(omg yes, i technically listened to the audiobooks, not read them, yes, i know)

Tuesday Top 10s

Top 10 ‘If you Love…’ Book Recommendations (but part 2)

tuesday top 10s final

at this point 80% of my personality is just me screaming at my friends to read my favourite books so what better idea than to write post entirely focused on recommending MORE books to everyone (this is what i do best, im sorry you have to put up with me)

i made a part 1 of this some time ago, so if youre somehow still miraculously looking for recommendations, you should totally check that one out (or like message me??? plz???)

if you hated any of these books then i’d ask you to reconsider your rating bc it’ll make me cry and do you really want to make a smol, nice (most of the time), sweet angel child cry?

no, i didnt think so.

glad we had this talk.

also it took me wayyyyy to long to make this, so the best way to appreciate all my hard work would be to 5 star all the books featured below 🙂

even though these books take place in two TOTALLY different times (one being very historic and the other being very modern) they both feature a murder mystery, top quality banter, a cute dorky boy, and lots of madness.

honestly why wouldn’t you wanna pick them up?

Monthly TBR

Contemporary-A-Thon TBR

monthly tbr finalI’M SUPER EXCITED for the start of the Contemporary-A-Thon bc not only do i adore contemps and get to participate in another readathon with so many other lovely readers, but i also get another reason to lock myself in my room and read for 12 hours straight. :’)

if you are unaware, the contemporary-a-thon takes place between the 17th of sept. till the 23rd from you time midnight till the next week, midnight.

Here’s the original video by the lovely host herself and she gives more details about the readathon in the vid.

I know we’re allowed to double up on challenges and im not entirely ruling that out for myself but since i am presumptuous/ambitious goose i’m going to aim for 7 individual books rather than completing all 7 challenges collectively

but again, we’ll see how it goes, like say if i have an existential crisis and get the spontaneous urge to repaint the walls of my bedroom, then im gonna be forced to double up on challenges.

The Sunshine Blogger Award

The Sunshine Blogger Award

I was nominated for this award by one of the loveliest Lilies a long time ago and if you don’t already follow her, then youre missing out big time bc she’s fairly new into the blogging world and yet she blogs like an actual pro, honestly im in awe of her abilities (and shes a cute little bean, so go give her some love)

~ The Rules ~

flower4Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you in the post and link back to their blog.

flower4Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.

flower4Nominate 8-11 new blogs to receive the award and ask them 11 new questions.

flower4List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award Logo on your post and/or on your blog. (i’m gonna pass on this one bc well,,,,,i dont know how to do that 🙃🙃🙃 and im too lazy to figure it out… can tell how low-budget this blog is huh?)


01. What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Gosh, Lily was taking no prisoners with this one, eh? my natural instinct is to self-deprecate, how do i react to this

okay truthfully, one of my most proudest accomplishments (besides being a morning person on most days) is that i’ve read over 600 books in just 4 years.

just thinking of those kind of numbers boggles my mind, like it really exposes how sad my social life is.

The 20 Questions Book Tag

book tag finals

I was tagged by mango may like sixty years ago to do this tag and even though most would have forgotten about it, i refuse to be a traitor and not complete it (also i need content for this blog now that im pretending to be active again)

anyways mango may is a little darling duck and even though our friendship is just her roasting me you should still follow her bc her roasts are pretty good.

1. how many books are too many books in a book series?

It really depends on the series tbh but also WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO READ AND WAIT FOR MORE THAN FIVE BOOKS TO COME OUT

friends, ive done this one too many times and let me tell you, it always ends with an existential crisis bc youre not sure if you’re going to die from waiting

so yeah, my answer is 5+ books is too much (ToG is one of my favourite series and there are 7 books, so like honestly just dont listen to me)
