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.

Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag // Gushing about my 2020 reads + me trying to be concise

For some reason, it is already July?

Which means it’s time to look back on the year (in terms of my reading) so far. I always love doing these sorts of posts, and I’ve read some pretty good things in the first half of the year, so I figured I would do this post before it got too late.

And yes, I know I disappeared for a few weeks? I’m really trying not to do this, but some personal things came up (+ rising senior stress) so that I wasn’t in the best headspace to blog. But I’m back, and I’m really going to try my best to be consistent. You all are such gems and I love you all so much ❤️

The Percy Jackson Book Tag // ft. me attempting not to repeat books + small text

So if you didn’t know, Percy Jackson is getting an adaptation.

And I, like the entire planet, am hyped about it!

While Percy Jackson was not my number one series as a child, it was still so critical in shaping me as a baby reader and just in my reading journey in general, so I thought this was fun to do, especially since both May @ Forever and Everly and Lily @ Sprinkles of Dreams tagged me in it. I love you both (and everyone needs to follow them now if they haven’t already) ❤

Note: While I did not address this last week as I had scheduled my post before everything blew up, I wanted to take a second to address the current political turmoil and the Black Lives Matter movement across the world. As someone with the privilege of having a platform, it’s so important for me to use it, so I’ve linked some organisations you can check out or donate to below:

What I Read In Quarantine: Tier-Ranking Edition! (ft. graphics, favourite reads + new formatting)

During the time I disappeared, I … did read some books?

But since this is a book blog, we’re going to talk about them, but with the twist of tier ranking them!

If you all have (somewhat) kept up with the book internet (mostly book twitter and BookTube), you know that tier ranking is a massive trend. And since I too love following the crowd ranking things, I’ve always wanted to make a tier ranking post at some point in the blog and to see how that would translate in blog form.

So after I saw Ellias’s video where he tier ranked all the books he recently read, I thought it would be a fun idea for me to do the same thing, especially since I’ve been finding the format of my previous wrap ups stifling, and need to try something new.

During quarantine (from March to May), I’ve read 14 books, and while I have read significantly less especially compared to previous years, I’ve been able to enjoy the books I do read more.

We’re going to go month by month, and then finish with the final graphic!

For everyone who wants the SparkNotes edition of this post.

Jan ’20 Wrap Up // The One Where It’s the Roaring ’20s, Found A New Favourite Artist + Had A Tumultuous Life Month

The first month of the Roaring ’20s is over!

And like, damn. It went so fast.

January was an insanely busy month for me, and I genuinely had so many things happened this month. It was a huge blur that went really fast, but also really slowly at the same time, if that makes any sense? But I was able to read a bunch of really solid reads (albeit all from the same genre).

Let’s just get into this truly chaotic month, shall we?

The Last (Albeit, Extremely Late) 2019 Wrap Up Post: The End of Year Bookish Survey ft. me screaming about a lot of books + the occasional meme

Welcome to the very last wrap up post for 2019!

Which is, annoyingly so, more than a month late, and even missed my regular uploading time!

This is, uh, going up at midnight, and it’s not a good look.

Today, I’m answering a good amount of the questions from the End of Year Bookish Survey! This is my second time doing this survey (having done this survey in 2018) and had lots of fun, so I figured this would be a good way to properly say goodbye to my 2019 reading year. I wrote a quick little summary in my 2019 recap post, so if you wanna see a quick overview of my reading year, it’s there for you.

Also, I’m so sorry I disappeared from the blog (again). It’s just that life got busy, I got distracted by life things in general, and yeah. Life just really be like that sometimes :/

This post took FOREVER to create and finish (like hours upon hours), so I’m gonna just end this here and take a huge nap because BOY do I need it.

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).
