I’m back to blogging (after a pretty long break), and I’m returning with a fun mid-year wrap up. Read on for my favourite reads of the year, books that have disappointed me, and the new releases I’m looking forward to.
Reading is one of the most amazing ways to destress, have fun and escape reality for a bit, without any pressure.
And, now that hobbies are increasingly being turned into ways to make money, it’s a hobby with little expectation.
So, how exactly does reading make you a happier person?
Dark academia is a genre that has been growing at an unprecedented rate over the past few years.
Today, I wanted to share the 8 Dark Academia new releases that I’m excited for this year.
YA fantasy is one of the most popular genres (and my personal favourite) in the book community. In fact, a 2012 survey showed 55% of YA readers are adults.

The question of whether star ratings are effective when it comes to book reviews is a frequent and often contentious one.
Today, I’m going to break down what star ratings are, as well as the positives and negatives to using this rating system for reviewing books.
I recently wrote about how you can read more efficiently to reach your 2021 reading goals.
But today I wanted to look at the other side: that maybe this year your goal should actually be to read less.
In a world that focuses on mile long tbrs and list after list of goals, it’s almost unheard of to want to read less. But reading more slowly has a lot of benefits.
This past year has been difficult in so many ways, but one positive for me (and so many others) has been having a lot more time to read.
But now that things are (slowly) returning to normal, how can we keep up the momentum to read more in the new year (whilst balancing that with work, family and other commitments)?
In my recent post, the 7 Worst YA Fiction Tropes, I wrote all about the most overused and harmful clichés in YA fiction.
