Hello everyone! I've been so bad at reading recently. According to Goodreads, I've only read 13 books this year. And I hoped to read 50! Whoops. Currently reading I am currently reading Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell. I've been reading it for about...one month. And to be honest, I couldn't really tell you what it's … Continue reading Life Update + Currently Reading and Watching
Hey everyone! This is my first post of 2019. And it's almost March! I wasn't able to post until now because I've been writing up my masters thesis. It has probably been the most difficult / most annoying thing I've had to do in my life. Thankfully, I have handed in the first draft! It's … Continue reading The Behind the Blogger Tag
Hey everyone! Recently I saw Laura @BookCorps post this tag and I thought it would be fun to do for myself too! It is a tag where you answer 100 questions about yourself and how you think. 1) WHAT’S YOUR NAME? Charlotte. 2) ANY NICKNAMES OR ALIASES? Charly, Char, and many embarrassing nicknames. 3) YOUR … Continue reading The 100 Truths Tag

Hi everyone! Today I am posting my June wrap-up. I really don't know where the time went last month. I had a pretty good time relaxing for most of the month because I am on my mid-year break. I'm fairly certain that I start uni again around 16 July, which seems annoyingly soon. Until then … Continue reading June wrap-up
Do you ever watch a movie that you loved and wish that there was a book version of it?
There are so many movies that were firstly books, but there are also a lot of movies that were simply turned into movie because of an original screenplay. I've thought of eight movies I really enjoyed and after watching them wished that there was a book based on the story.
In November of 2017, I wrote a post that listed five books I thought would end up being five-star reads. The books I chose were Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur, Renegades by Marissa Meyer, Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson, The Comfort Zone by Sally Thorne and Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes. It took me a while - because I forgot about the books I chose - but I have finally read the books (except for one, which isn't my fault!).
Today I have a bit of a random post. There is a feature on WordPress that allows you to view what others have searched to get to your blog, but most of the time it says 'unknown search term.' Out of almost two years of blogging, I have only been able to view eleven terms. Some of them are funny, so I thought I would answer them in this post.
Writing, for me, comes and goes in waves, but recently I have been getting back into my personal writing. I say 'personal' because I have to do a bit of writing for school and I feel like it doesn't really count. I have already worked on two different stories this year - unfinished, obviously - and I have liked setting aside about an hour each night to spend writing. Granted, I do not do this every night, but it has been therapeutic and good to put my writing into practice.
Sometimes I really love the premise of a book and look forward to reading it, but sometimes the reviews start coming in and I feel discouraged about picking it up. This is what happened to most of the books on this list and it is unlikely that I will ever read them.
