The only proper way I can think to start this post is with a massive thank you.
Without your continual and unending support I wouldn’t still be doing this three years after I started. It’s hard to believe that it was so long ago I started, and I shudder to think about what I used to do.
Still, growth is important, and having this space has been an amazing chance to grow and learn… and before I get too sappy, scream about books.
Unable to shut up about books. (And get out a blog post more than once a month.)
There’s so many amazing books coming out this year, and while I originally had a post planned to discuss books coming out from Jan-June, this was all I could get done. There’s also the small factor that,,, all of the January books have now been released. I still haven’t read any of them, and I drafted all the words of this post before anything actually released (yes… I’ve been working on this for months… oops…), but I’m sorry. Life has been more stressful since going back to school a couple of weeks ago, and over part of the summer I didn’t have much wifi to work on posts. However! On with the post!
Books that I’m especially looking forward to reading will have a 🌸 next to them, as I wanted to mark them in some way. This would have been so much faster if when I added the book to the post originally, I copied the link and date, but no, I didn’t think to do that so I had to go back, search every book up on the physical incarnation of hell known as Goodreads, and then continue. I’m so dumb. About an extra hours work – but in the long run (about a 7 hour total) it’s not much?? Maybe?? This is mostly just me trying to make myself feel better…
Thank you so much for sticking with me over these last couple of months – I haven’t posted since last year which is absolutely insane and definitely not my plan, but I’m here and I’m back to stay. Any extra little bit of support would be incredibly appreciated, as I’m trying to find my footing in blogging again.
I can’t decide whether I’m excited, disappointed, or confused – but I think it’s the latter. This whole year has just been a whirlwind of school, a pandemic, emotions – and books!
I’m super super SUPER excited to be filling out the End Of Year Book Survey today, created by The Perpetual Page Turner a few years ago – but it’s my first time! I’ve had so much fun going through all my reads and answering the questions I want to, and end of year posts are so fun!!!!!
Also!!! I… do realise I’ve not posted for a while. Maybe this is just how blogging will be from now on? It’s more likely that I took forever on this 2.4k word post with extensive formatting….. and my next post is also taking a very long time. I’d really appreciate if you could boost this post in any way you can, or show it some love in the comments!! I hope you all have a wonderful end of 2020 and new year, and thank you all for sticking by me xxxx
so, as i write this, taylor swift released her new album yesterday and i’m already in love.

(yes i know it came out on the 11th i have been busy since finishing school hehe)
i hope you like the tag! feel free to do it and i’ll add you to the list below ❤
If I’m being honest, the only posts I’ve wanted to write and had motivation to have been ones relating to next year.
I’ve been working on a massive 2021 releases list (it’s definitely a problem but I love it so much still), I’ve wanted to start my End of Year Book Survey (for the first time I’m linking up with it, and it seems like a lot of fun!), and I’ve actually… been inclined to set some goals?
I’m not a very committed person (I don’t like making simple decisions, so how am I doing this?) but I’ve been thinking about having some sort of goal setting for next year in the three major areas of my life – books/reading, blogging/online, and personal life. I won’t be sharing my life goals today, as it’s a little too in depth and confusing for anyone else, but I will have my bookish and blog goals! (And, as it turns out, some miscellaneous life/writing/other goals.)
