    OCTOBER RECAP // new fave book, spooky series binge & mental health

    I’m really terrible at sticking to a schedule people. I’m meant to be FREE and I just can’t do it. I said I’d try and post every 2 weeks during exams but whelp that didn’t happen. I kept leaving it to Sunday and then I just couldn’t get around to finishing the dang post. The cycle continued so this is why you’re only getting a post now. Anyways, I don’t want this post to go up too late so I’m trying to stay ahead of the game and post it now. I also want to start doing book hauls in monthly recaps so that’ll start happening in next month’s one.…

    (very very late) MAY, JUNE AND JULY RECAP // exam craziness, holidays ft. the usual anxiety

    As you can tell by the title of this post, it is way overdue. And I sound like a broken record but ahh I’ve been so busy lately. School has been taking up a lot of my time. I’ve felt super demotivated over here and not as creative as usual. But I’m trying to come back, I swear. I have a few posts that I’m working on. Just a warning though, I have had time these past few months available, but my end of year exam season is coming up so I might disappear again? I’m going to try not to but I can’t make any promises. Besides that, hi,…

    (late) MARCH RECAP // i read A TON but am kinda sorta suffering a creative slump

    Okay, I legit just checked how long ago I posted and internally cringed. I APOLOGISE IMMENSELY FOR ABANDONING YOU GUYS. But I’ll get to that later. I did actually read quite a few books. Your eyes might pop out of your head (chill Ruby it isn’t that much). Anyways, I think it’s just time to get into this post. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas {★★★★★}: We’re just going to sidestep the fact that I’m 648368622 years late to this book and talk about how brilliant this book is.

    NOVEMBER RECAP // exams, my birthday and contemporaries

    Eyy look at me trying to be on time because apparently, I’m the best at creating new content… Okay so I was writing exams for basically the entirety of November, so um yeah, fun times.
