March 2021 Reading

This was a slow month. I finished three books but haven’t made too much progress with what I’m currently reading, either. But that’s okay! Here’s what I read. Breath (James Nestor) I gave 4 of 5 stars. This was an entertaining yet factual book exploring the science and history behind breathing; both the good and […]

January 2021 Reading

This month I read five novels and one non-fiction, and most novels were quick reads, starting off the year well. My first completed read of 2021 was The Godmothers (Monica McInerney), which I gave 4 of 5 stars, though a low, could-change-my-mind type of 4. This story is about Eliza, and the journey she goes […]

October 2020 Reading

October was a great reading month as I’ve been on uni holidays and I started working in a bookstore, which means buying all the things. (Yes, I know I’m on a no-spend year, but the four I’ve bought so far were ones I’ve been wanting for a while. That’s valid, right?) (Right!?) I read three […]

September 2020 Reading

September was a good month for starting and finishing books. I reread the lovely, lovely Anne of Green Gables (L.M. Montgomery), which is a favourite worth 5 of 5 stars. I mean it when I say I want to be Anne when I grow up; she finds delight in the simplest things, is unafraid of […]

August 2020 Reading

This month I read two novels; Again, Again (E. Lockhart) and Outline (Rachel Cusk). I gave both 4 of 5 stars. The first tells the story of Adelaide’s summer as she stays on school campus because her dad is a teacher. She walks dogs and meets new people, but in each chapter are a few […]

January 2020 Reading

For this month’s reading list, I thought I’d try out a different format as there are a lot of books to get through. This month I read numerous poetry books that I ordered online. I love these poets’ spoken word on YouTube, and I thought it was worth supporting the small publishing house. If My […]

December 2019 Reading

As we reach the end of the year, I’m happy to say I read over 100 books! 108 in total, though I may be able to scrape in another one or two before January. This month I did read a few books I haven’t reviewed; two Irene Hannon’s (Christian fiction, not Amish) and a Jan […]

September 2019 Reading

I only finished one book in September, but I’ve reached my goal of 80 books this year (even though my not-so-secret secret goal is 100) so I’m not complaining. Next trimester I have to read a bunch of children’s books, which I’m really looking forward to. It’ll be interesting to study what makes one a […]

August 2019 Reading

My reading has slowed down a lot in the past two months since starting university, a fact surprising no one. But on top of that, my reading tastes are changing. I’ve always liked classics and wanted a good collection of ones I enjoy, but in the past month I’ve been more motivated to read them […]

July 2019 Reading

Okay, this monthly wrap-up is much, much shorter than all my others have been, and I know you’re all sighing with relief because boy-oh-boy are the other ones way too long to read properly. To your happiness, I’m now a hard-working university student who doesn’t have time to even remember what a book is – […]
