Sunday Post. Did I Buy Too Many Books?

Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviews.

When I wrote, "see you next Sunday," I was naive and had too much hope. πŸ˜‹ I still have to perfect my blogging schedule. I just spent a long time without blogging, and I need to learn how to balance work, life, and blogging again. It might take me longer than I want to, but I will do it! 🀞

Favourite Books & Comfort Books, All the Same?

Discussion article alert! 😁 I confess, I did not think I still had the ability to write discussion posts -- okay, blog discussion posts because I think that what I do for a living can be described as a 10k to 200k words "discussion post." But inspiration comes from the strangest places -- okay, Twitter is not the most bizarre or odd place to find inspiration. I saw this tweet about one's favourite book and comfort book a thousand years ago, and it was the kick-off for this discussion. So, is my favourite book different from my comfort book?

Sunday Post. One More Hiatus

Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviews.

Some days, you wake up thinking, "Blogging is no longer for me." Other days, you wake you with a thousand post ideas popping in your head and think, "There are so many book conversations I want to have." So, after another return followed by a hiatus, which I thought would end my blogging hobby, here I am, AGAIN! πŸ˜… I'm not sure if "Sunday Post" is still an active meme, but this has always been the perfect spot to begin anew after a long time without writing.

TTT. 7 Books I Was SO EXCITED to Get, but Still Haven’t Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl.
Top Ten Tuesday wants to shame us all this week. It's calling out our compulsive book-buying habits and exposing the happiness of finally getting the book we wanted only to put it on the TBR pile and never pick it ever again. Okay, "ever again" is too harsh. Let me replace it by "only picking it a thousand years later after cleaning the dust and some spiderwebs." Better, right? πŸ˜‹ Now it's time to start my guilt trip with seven books I wanted so freaking much, but I have yet to plunge into their worlds.

Sunday Post. No More I'm Back

Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviews.

HELLO! I think it is time to stop writing "I'm back!". πŸ˜… The last few months have been pretty eventful -- I fear I have been on an unlucky strike -- and blogging just wasn't a priority. In fact, even reading was not a priority. After flying through the pages in January, I had trouble reading one book per month. But now that my PhD studentship has begun, I'll be back to the reading and writing world -- and hopefully, to the blogging world too.

Monthly Wrap-Up. January

Goodbye, January! πŸ₯³ Usually, the first month of the new year goes very slowly, but I have got to say that January has gone by pretty quickly. Just yesterday, I was celebrating the arrival of the new year, and now it is February -- and I'm worried because I haven't finished a single book, nor completed a paper I will be presenting very soon, nor updated my blog regularly as I expected.

TTT. Can't Wait Books of 2022

My yearly can't wait books lists are usually much longer, but I've decided to take it slow since I'm returning from a long unwanted hiatus. I picked one book per month -- actually, I must confess, choosing one book was far from easy, with all the great books that are coming out this year. Anyway, shall we take a look at my list?
