What's coming next?

Hey!


Today, I thought I'd give you a very laid back idea of what types of blog posts you'll be seeing in the coming weeks and what I've been up to!

I've just come back from holiday and had a great reading period whilst I was away, so you can definitely expect a Holiday Reading Wrap Up soon. Some of the books I read were excellent, so I'd like to do specific reviews or fun focused posts on them.

There're also quite a few BookTubers I'd like to recommend you all to watch which means another recommendation post will be popping up.

Other than those specific things, I think it should be business as normal on here; except I want to try and start Top 5 Wednesday. It's such a great way to be part of the community and they're nice and simple to write!

I am a little bogged down with school reading at the moment, but I'm trying to stick to a weekly schedule of posts every Monday (and soon every Wednesday as well!)

Hope you enjoyed this little update,
Happy reading

Feminist Lit // Series Launch

Hello, my name's Amelia and I'm a feminist. And I like to read books... Can you see where this is going?

I thought I'd launch a new series on my blog which will be focused on Feminist books and general media that I consume, although the main focus will be books!

Many feminist book clubs already exist so I don't want to create my own, but just join in with the discussion on my own platform. Any time I read a book which has feminist undertones or morals, I'll blog about it in this series to document my progression as a feminist and how my beliefs change as I read more.

I hope that you will join me on this adventure that I'm really excited to start working on. You can expect reviews, discussions and recommendations in this series and I'm more than happy to take any requests for content you'd like to see (for this series or otherwise)

I'll leave a link here to the Feminist Orchestra Book Club reading list so you can get a general idea of some of the books I'd quite like to read! Click Here

As always,
Happy reading

Bookish Bucket List // Midway Progress

Hey guys,

Remember when I posted that ambitious list of books that I wanted to read this year?

Well, by July you'd expect me to have read around half of that list, right? Haha, if only I was that dedicated to making progress. 

Breaking news: I've only read 2. The titles I've read are A Game of Thrones and How Hard Can Love Be? so I have enjoyed what I've read... it's just that I haven't read very much from the list. *squeals in shame*

I am planning on definitely having Gatsby finished by the end of the year but I can't make promises about any of the others. My TBR has grown quite a bit since I started using my Kindle (and buying all the cheap books!) I'm thinking of maybe making an eBook TBR jar to help me with that but I won't begin until after I come back off of holiday.

So, did you make a book bucket list? Have you made better progress than me|? Let me know!
Happy reading,
A x
