Favourite Blog Posts of February

This month, I’ve been quite tired. I’ve started teaching some extra classes at my internship and the long days at school are using up most of my energy. It’s hardly surprising, then, that the first two posts I’ve bookmarked this month deal with taking breaks or getting back that creative energy.

I remember the title of Eustea Reads’ You’re Not Lazy, You’re Tired And That’s Okay immediately jumping out to me as it came up in my WordPress Reader. Thank you Eustacia, this is exactly what I needed to hear! ❤

10 Books About Books & Book Lovers

For the last couple of months the book blogging world has been enthralled by The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern. I’m only 1/3 in so I can’t say much about it yet, but one of the reasons why everyone seems to love it (and rightly so!) is that it pays homage to reading, readers and the books we all love.

If you have already read The Starless Sea and are wondering what to do with yourself, or would simply like to read more books on this theme, here are 10 books to keep you going:

Happy New Year, everyone! All best wishes for 2020 ❤

Consu @ Paper Eyed Girl has compiled a list of trans books by trans authors, because, as she puts it “Sometimes people are shitty but instead of talking about them I thought it’d be way better for everyone to talk about the people making the literary world a better, more inclusive, place”. Well said, Consu! Plus, I’m thinking about participating in Cotton Candy Book Witch’s Here & Queerathon 2020, so this list will be extra helpful!

The 10 Prettiest Books I Own | BE Winter Day 17

Today’s Bookending Winter prompt is “Decorate Your Christmas Tree: Take photographs and show off the prettiest books you own.” Honestly, if I had a massive Christmas tree and someone would invent a way to hang books in it without damaging them that would be absolutely perfect. For the moment, though, I have gone for more of a cosy-reading-nook kind of approach.

Here are the 10 prettiest books I own (in no particular order). Small warning: I’m going to ask you which one you like best at the end of this post.

You may not be able to tell from this picture, but the turquoise trees, birds and text are made from a shimmery foil which makes the cover super pretty. I also love this colour combination.

Joy Of Reading Book Tag

Happy almost-Christmas everyone! I wasn’t tagged in this tag, but I found it on The Brunette Bookworm Blog and it was originally created by Sam from Sam’s Nonsense on YouTube.

1. Anticipation: The Christmas excitement is real, what book release(s) are you most anticipating?

Ai, I am so bad at keeping up with new releases. *Quick Goodreads search* I see that Becky Albertalli is publishing a new book, so that should be good.
