May is finally over! I disappeared from this blog for most of the month because I’ve been poorly for a fortnight, but I’m happy to be back blogging again. Just in time for a wrap up post. Here’s what my boring May looked like:
Hello I’m back from my break! This post is inspired by a blogger’s post on their most-read authors and I’m so sorry I can’t remember who it was. But I found on Goodreads, that there’s a button you can press that leads you to your most read authors and I thought I’d write about my top 10 most read authors.
And I’ll include what my favourite and least favourite read of theirs is just to make it a little more fun. Ummm… So lets do it!
If you’re curious about your most read authors, you can find it on Goodreads – My Books – Most read authors. (Button is below your shelves).

Title: The Fall Up

I wanted to jump.
He made me fall.
As a celebrity, I lived in the public eye, but somewhere along the way, I’d lost myself in the spotlight.
Until he found me.
Sam Rivers was a gorgeous, tattooed stranger who saved my life with nothing more than a simple conversation.
But we were both standing on that bridge for a reason the night we met. The secrets of our pasts brought us together—and then tore us apart.
Could we find a reason to hold on as life constantly pulled us down?
Or maybe there’s only one direction to go when two people fall in love at rock bottom—up.
I haven’t done a ebook haul in aaages! Recently I made a post on how to get books for cheap or for free, and I wanted to show whoever is interested that you can get so many books for free! I’m not in a position where I can spend a lot of money on books so I’ve come to rely on free books a lot. I’m always on the hunt for free ebooks, and here’s a post showing off all my latest purchases (and I didn’t spend a penny!)
April was a weird month for me because I did next to nothing and my mental health took a hit, but I’m on the verge of taking action in improving my life and it’s kind of nice. Here’s what my April looked like:
Something that makes me feel weirdly isolated in the bookish community is that I didn’t read Harry Potter as a kid. I doubt I’ll ever read the books. And so I don’t have much of an attachment to the series or the movies like a lot of people my age seemingly do.
I’ve seen a lot of discussion on Twitter about the Twilight series lately, and that, despite the series being what it is, they got a lot of young adults into reading for fun. And it made me think about the novels that got me into reading.
I didn’t read many novels as a kid, I think I mostly read books required for school, and I didn’t become a fan of reading until I was eighteen years old. So, in this post, I’m going to reveal the novels and authors that turned me into the bookworm I am today. Yayy!
I can’t imagine anyone taking blogging advice from me but I’ve occasionally had the idea of making a post like this and since I’m stuck for ideas I figured I’d make it now…
When I first started blogging I remember reading posts like this from bigger bloggers and I think it helped me a lot. It would be great if anyone found this useful, but if not, I get it. No hard feelings. This post is mostly centred around blog appearance and design, and this is just my opinion and if you disagree with any of my tips then that’s totally okay! Your blog is yours and you can make it look however you want.

Do you know what hearing loss sounds like? I do.
All my life I’ve tried to be like you. I’ve failed.
So I keep it hidden.
But on the day my world crashed down around me, Reed was there.
He showed me just how loud and vibrant silence can be, even when I struggled to understand.
He’s unlike anyone I’ve ever known. His soulful eyes and strong hands pulled me in before I knew what was happening.
And as I saw those hands sign, felt them sparking on me, I knew: imperfect could be perfect.
Reed makes me feel things I’ve never felt. It’s exciting…and terrifying.
Because he sees me like no one else has, and I’m afraid of what he’ll find if he looks too closely.
The only thing that scares me more than being with him? Letting him go.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t buy books that often. Even when I do have money to spare, it’ll go toward something other than books. I used to love buying books from The Book Depository or from Waterstones back when I bought paperbacks, but now that I read only eBooks, I spend a lot less money on books and my struggling bank account is grateful.
I just don’t spend much money on books. Nothing wrong with that. And for whatever reason, a lot of people don’t or can’t spend much money on fiction. So, here’s some websites where you can get books for cheap, or even for free, that I use, or plan to use in the future.
And yes, I know libraries exist but for a lot of people, myself included, the library isn’t an option so. Just know that I haven’t forgotten libraries in this list, sadly that’s not an option for me.
This post mostly revolves around cheap Kindle books and audiobooks so it won’t be for everybody!Read More »
Hello! I’m hoping other book bloggers can relate to this, but do you ever feel a little restricted with your blog? I’m currently trying to create original content and rely less on memes and tags, but in attempting to do so, I’m really feeling limited on the types of posts I can produce.
Hi! I started this post months ago and then I deleted it out of frustration. But here it is again and I’m hoping it turns out better than the last one… I love pets in books. In my opinion, you really can’t go wrong with including animals in novels and I kind of wish they were more popular in romance novels (I’m only mentioning romance just because that’s all I read). And so here’s a post showcasing some of my favourite pets in novels I’ve read, in no particular order. Enjoy!:
