Booktubers on My Radar Lately

RELATED: Booktubers I’m Following!

I started watching booktube videos last summer (a bit late to the party I know), but I’m still a bit reticent about watching new booktubers because I’m very *picky* about it. (Voices, taste in books, general attitude, and aesthetic are kinda important…)

March Wrap Up //2021

Hello, friends, how was your month? Spring is here, and the weather is nice (though not yet nice enough to read outside). Work was interesting and fulfilling, for the most part, and I watched some really good tv shows and movies!

I have a new theme on bookstagram, by the way, and I am loving it. I’m more motivated to be creative and inspired, though I’m also trying to just be more chill, and not feel pressured to post.

As I mentioned before, I’m buying more sustainable this year, and 6 out of the 7 books I bought this month were used (two are gifts for my mother).

Also, unhauled a few more boos, leading to a total of 29 unhauled books in 2021!!

  • Lore – Alexandra Bracken (read)
  • The Scorpio Races – Maggie Stiefvater (read)
  • Temeraire – Naomi Novik
  • Notes on a Nervous Planet – Matt Haig
  • Inappropriate by Vi Keeland (new)

I had a slower reading month. Physical and mental exhaustion, and less free time just didn’t let me read as much. Still, I enjoyed all the books I read this month. Some I loved, most were average fun (lots of 3 star reads), but only one or two weren’t great. (Also, I won’t be mentioning books I read for work or uni on the blog from now on, but they still might be on my goodreads).

I discovered a new favorite genre/subgenre(?) this month: dark fantasy adult romance. It has all the fun of adult romance with the excitement, unpredictable aspects of fantasy, and it can be kind of dark… (books by Laura Thalassa, and Black Sunshine by Karina Halleđź–¤).

I read 12 books this month. You can find reviews for all of these, either here in the blog or on my goodreads.

Review: Bridge of Souls by Victoria Schwab

Goodreads// Where there are ghosts, Cassidy Blake follows… unless it’s the other way around?

Cass thinks she might have this ghost-hunting thing down. After all, she and her ghost best friend, Jacob, have survived two haunted cities while travelling for her parents’ TV show.

But nothing can prepare Cass for New Orleans, which wears all of its hauntings on its sleeve. In a city of ghost tours and tombs, raucous music and all kinds of magic, Cass could get lost in all the colourful, grisly local legends. And the city’s biggest surprise is a foe Cass never expected to face: a servant of Death itself.

Cass takes on her most dangerous challenge yet…

Review: Lore by Alexandra Bracken

Goodreads// Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals, hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god and seize their divine power and immortality.
Long ago, Lore Perseous fled that brutal world in the wake of her family’s sadistic murder by a rival line, turning her back on the hunt’s promises of eternal glory. For years she’s pushed away any thought of revenge against the man – now a god – responsible for their deaths.

Yet as the next hunt dawns over New York City, two participants seek out her help: Castor, a childhood friend of Lore believed long dead, and a gravely wounded Athena, among the last of the original gods.

The goddess offers an alliance against their mutual enemy and, at last, a way for Lore to leave the Agon behind forever. But Lore’s decision to bind her fate to Athena’s and rejoin the hunt will come at a deadly cost–and still may not be enough to stop the rise of a new god with the power to bring humanity to its knees.

Review: Covet by Tracy Wolf

Goodreads: I may have reached my breaking point. As if trying to graduate from a school for supernaturals isn’t stressful enough, my relationship status has gone from complicated to a straight-up dumpster fire. Oh, and the Bloodletter has decided to drop a bomb of epic proportions on us all… Then again, when has anything at Katmere Academy not been intense?

And the hits just keep coming. Jaxon’s turned colder than an Alaskan winter. The Circle is splintered over my upcoming coronation. As if things couldn’t get worse, now there’s an arrest warrant for Hudson’s and my supposed crimes—which apparently means a lifetime prison sentence with a deadly unbreakable curse. Choices will have to be made…and I fear not everyone will survive.

*This review is for the second book in the Crave series by Tracy Wolff, so if you haven’t read Crave yet, I wouldn’t recommend reading this review as it may spoil you.*

Reading Habits I’m Changing in 2021

Last year was a year of wild, fast reading, and reading goals that went out the window because my mental health and life in general simply didn’t allow them to be. But this year I’m focusing on just reading what I want, fewer goals, and being more relaxed about this hobby. I’ve been trying to change certain bookish and reading habits for a while, but it never worked, until now… Read on to see how my reading habits are already changing in 2021!

Review: Breaking Damian by Eren Morgul

Goodreads// Damian lives on the streets of the Gauntlet—a megapolis where magic wielding weavers from four different Houses and ordinary people coexist peacefully. His life is a struggle and he’s doing anything to get by, including stealing from wealthy merchants and working in the mines, all the while dreaming of becoming a weaver.

Then, one day, he shows signs of magic and his life changes forever.

But when the Emperor who has been ruling over the Gauntlet for two hundred years disappears, the Houses turn on each other and he finds himself at the center of a power struggle.

Now, with civil war threatening to engulf his world, he realizes that it is up to him, and him alone, to end the conflict between the Houses and save everyone he loves

Review: Crush by Tracy Wolff

Goodreads // Everything feels off—especially me. I’ve returned to Katmere Academy, but I’m haunted by fragments of days I have no recollection of living and struggling to understand who, or what, I really am. Just when I start to feel safe again, Hudson is back with a vengeance. He insists there are secrets I don’t know about, threatening to drive a wedge between Jaxon and me forever. But far worse enemies are at our doorstep.

The Circle is caught in a power play and the Vampire Court is trying to drag me out of my world and into theirs. The only thing Hudson and Jaxon agree on is that leaving Katmere would mean my certain death.And not only am I fighting for my life, but now everyone else’s is at stake—unless we can defeat an unspeakable evil. All I know is that saving the people I love is going to require sacrifice. Maybe more than I’m able to give.

The Sunday Post: a week in review

The Sunday post is a weekly meme hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news and recap what happened over the past week.

Sunday, march 7th 2021. It’s been a while since I did one of these, but now that I’ll be less active blogging and with less free time, I figured a recap now and then would make me feel a it lighter at the end of the week.


I started my curricular internship this week. For those of you unaware, I’m currently in the final stretch of a master’s degree in Publishing. This 3-month internship at a small publishing company, and the consequent report, will be my final project (or term paper). I was told I can work whatever schedule I want as long as the tasks get done, but I’m working 9-5 for now while I still have the energy and good mental health days. (*I’ll also be working remotely for the whole 3 months). My tasks so far have been some text editing and some maintenance of book information on their online catalogue so far.
