AUGUST READATHONS AND AN AMBITIOUS TBR

Ever since #RamadanReadathon, I’ve been wanting to participate in another readathon without the added stress of hosting it myself. Every month, there are always plenty of events to choose from, with readathons ranging from a single weekend like 24in48 to a whole month or even a year. Lately, I’ve discovered a couple of readathons happening in August and, because they align with my reading goals for the month, I’m doing all of them! I thought I’d combine them here, along with what I plan to read for each, in case anyone else wants to get involved too.Read More »

THE COMMON READING SLUMP: TYPES, TREATMENT AND THE PRESSURE TO READ

Hello everyone!

I had something completely different scheduled for today but I didn’t get around to writing it so I thought I’d talk about reading slumps instead, since I’m currently in one. Honestly, it could not have come at a worse time and it’s especially frustrating because, compared to previous months, I didn’t even schedule many books to read during April.Read More »

MARMITE BOOKS: YOU LOVE THEM OR YOU HATE THEM

Hello everyone!

I suspect you have been lured into reading this post by my quirky title, or you are just curious about what a ‘Marmite book’ actually is. For starters, it’s not a book about Marmite. If you have no idea what that is either then chances are you’re not British. Its most common use over here is a breakfast spread and virtually everyone is familiar with the slogan: ‘you either love it or hate it.’ I’ve actually never tried it myself (and I have no intention of trying it) so I don’t know if I’m the former or the latter, but I really wanted to use this controversial spread to talk about… books.Read More »

BOOKISH PET PEEVES

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now but I kept having to postpone it due to deadlines. The idea has been in my head for so long that I can’t even remember what initially sparked it, but I remember looking it up afterwards to see if it had been done before and I believe it was a topic for Top Ten Tuesday, back in 2011, which is why I decided to limit my list to ten. They aren’t ranked in any specific order, and I probably have way more than ten, but I really enjoyed compiling this list.Read More »
