Blogmas Day 18 – Illumicrate December Box ‘Cursed’ Unboxing πŸ“¦πŸŽπŸ“šπŸ₯°

Hello lovelies!

I have received my first bookish box from Illumicrate and I thought I would do an unboxing! πŸ₯° The theme for this month is “Cursed” and when the fandoms where announced, I was scared I wouldn’t like the items because I haven’t read the books from those fandoms but I’m pleasantly surprised!

Blogmas Day 16: Top 6 covers of 2021 πŸ–ΌπŸ“”πŸ’•

Hello lovelies! πŸ₯°

I judge books by their covers. There, I said it. While it isn’t my only criterion for picking up a book, beautiful covers are a big factor into my choosing of a book! This is a little bit of a shorter post but I wanted to show you my favourite covers of books that I read in 2021 or that came out in 2021.

Blogmas Day 15 – WWW Wednesday, December, 15th πŸ“š

Hello lovelies!

I have reached 100 books read this year (wooo πŸ₯³) so I don’t really have books that I absolutely *need* to get to but I simply want to lower books on my physical TBR so I can enter 2022 with a clear conscious (and a lot of book buying!). This meme was formerly hosted byΒ MizBΒ atΒ A Daily RhythmΒ and revived onΒ Taking on a World of Words.

The Three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Blogmas Day 14 – Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry by Joya Goffney, a beautiful ode to Black girls, identity, friendship and love πŸ“šπŸ’•

Hello lovelies!

Oh my. This is it; this is the peak of my reading experience and nothing will top this book. Am I being overly dramatic? Yes, but it’s true.

Blogmas Day 13 – Winter Wonderland Book Tag β˜ƒοΈπŸ“š

Hello lovelies!

I am back with another tag!! I have seen this tag around and have actually seen it from thisbellereadstoo but I don’t know the creator of the tag. Credits to them. I hope you enjoy!!

The Questions β˜ƒοΈπŸ“š

One: What book is so happy and so sweet that it just warms your heart?

Sick Kids In Love by Hannah MoskowitzΒ was the sweetest, cutest, healthiest romance ever! Because of my unconscious bias, I thought this would be tragic but it was actually a wonderful story about sick kids who fall in love and learn to navigate their feelings and their life. It was wonderful!

Two: What’s your favourite book with a white cover?

Blogmas Day 12 – Books that can be read in one-sitting to reach your reading goals! πŸ†πŸ“š

Hello lovelies!

Slowest reader of the universe here!! By some miracle I sometimes manage to read books in one-sitting, more often than not, on audio but some with other formats. As everyone is rushing to reach their yearly reading goals, I thought I would share books that can be read in one-sitting and that I enjoyed!

Blogmas Day 11 – The Hating Game – Book vs Movie πŸŽ₯πŸ“š

Hello lovelies!

Few things divide the book community more than book adaptations. The Hating Game is a very popular book in the romance genre because of the popular “enemies to lovers” trope and the situations that steam from it: only one bed, boy obsessed, banter, angst, etc.

I always say that reading The Hating Game felt like a fever dream and seeing the movie yesterday reminded me why I used to say that. There were so many elements that I had forgotten from the book and it was so nice to see them again!

Blogmas Day 10 – Books I gifted in the past πŸŽπŸ“š

Hello lovelies!

My love language is book giving and I thought it would be interesting to make a list of the books I have already gifted in the past and why. My thought process when I give books is essentially seeing first what type of reader the receiver is, that means: if they regularly read books or if they’re more of an occasional reader and then I try to figure out the person’s reading tastes from what they’ve told me. To be honest, I mostly give people books I have read and enjoyed because it’s safer but other times I just trust other people’s reviews or if the synopsis catches my eye.
