14+ of my Most Anticipated Releases of the Quarter (ft. diverse books that can step on me, pretty covers + me screaming, again)

Welcome to another post about ya girl screaming about new releases with pretty covers!

As many of you know, these are some of my favourite posts to create, because it’s another excuse for me to scream about books I am incredibly excited about.

My previous anticipated releases posts used to cover six months, but since COVID-19 are moving release dates around like everyday, I decided to cover my anticipated releases for July, August and September, and do one for the last three months in September/October.

Since I’ve been reading a lot less lately and my TBR is NOT thriving, I’ve been really picky with which books I am anticipating, which is partially why this list is much shorter than it would normally be.

My Most Anticipated Releases of January to June 2020 // ft. glorious covers, diversity and way too many March 3rd releases

It’s the Roaring ’20s, and 2020 is definitely going to smoother me with all the amazing new releases!!

And I cannot wait.

But also … 56 releases? I KNOW.

This is actually one of my favourite times of the year, because this is actually one of my favourite posts to create! I just love screaming about things I am excited for and they just put me in a really great mood, okay.

This list makes me really happy and there are some books that I am so, so sure I’m going to love, which makes me so happy. And it’s also pretty diverse!! Which is incredibly exciting too.

I’m going to shut up now so you can just go and read about the anticipated releases, but everything is in order of release date and the titles are directly linked to their respective Goodreads pages! (Please appreciate this, it literally took forever and I kind of wanted to scratch my eyes out, not going to lie).

It’s Time for That Post: Did I Read All My Anticipated Reads of 2019?

It is midway through January, and ya girl is here with checking in with all her anticipated releases of 2019!

An annual tradition, I guess.

I always like to do this post because often I find that those of us in the bookish community tend to make massive anticipated releases lists, scream about them and then never follow up on them.

Okay, if I’m being honest, this post is mostly for me, because I just love checking in, but it’s chill.

Let’s talk about 2019 releases!!

May Wrap Up – I Made It Out Alive (Somewhat) From IGCSE Season, Read A Lot of Books + I’m Back From Hiatus!

So, as you can tell from the title, I’m back from hiatus!

I’ve made it through most of my IGCSE exams (somewhat) alive, and … let’s not talk about them lmao. That period of my life is mostly over until results day is over.

Also, this month (and in the time I was away on hiatus) I reached 200 WordPress followers and 400 followers overall, which is awesome! It really blows my mind that 400 of you all are genuinely interested in reading my ramblings while I stumble through blogging. At the time of writing this, I’m close to 450 overall followers, which is pretty dope. I’ll probably do something for 500 overall followers, but I’m not sure. We’ll see.

April II – The One Wherein I Wrap Up My Feeble Attempt to Conquer My April TBR (yikes)

Disclaimer: That graphic’s title is not entirely accurate.

For those of you who have been reading my reading plans’ posts for the last few months may be wondering why I’m only wrapping up my April TBR and not revealing what I intend to read in May.

My Very First ARC review aka The Weight of Our Sky by Hanna Alkaf

★★★★ ¼

Releases February 5th, 2019!

This is my first ARC ever, and what a special one it was. This was so good, and I highly recommend you pick this up when it releases on February 5th 2019.

I was so excited to read this one that I dropped my 3-5 (yes, you read correctly) current reads to pick this one. And it did not disappoint.

A Fairly Solid Reading Month aka My November Wrap Up I + I’m Going On Hiatus!

Reading-wise, November was just so much of a better reading month especially when you compare it to the mess that was October. I was disappointed by a few books, but found some really good ones, too. I do think this month went pretty well considering the fact that I’m preparing for mocks (which is a, um, trainwreck).

Also – I wanted to take some time to announce that I’ll officially be going on a mini-hiatus for about two weeks to focus on my IGCSE mocks, and I’ll be back after that with a lot of end-of-the-year posts and all that.

I mean A LOT.

I’ll go more into depth about my November in the life wrap up, but me coping, studying and dealing with mocks is not going well at all. Though I love (and will miss) blogging and talking about books a lot, I do need to prioritize school. I just need to take things one at a time right now. I’ll be back around mid-December if all goes to plan.

On the brighter side, I hit my Goodreads goal of 100 books. I’m trying to read more books that I did last year though (at 108 books) which I can definitely do.

Go me.
