Favorite January Reads & February TBR – Tessa Dare took over my life

January 2020 was a year on it’s own. Finally, February is here, and with is, much to do. The semester has officially started for me, but that won’t stop me from getting to my towering TBR.

Bullet Journaling: A Bookworm’s Guide to Getting Started

Bullet journals have really grown in popularity in the past couple of years, and whenever I looked at those amazing pictures on instagram and pintrest, I would get so intimidated. I have no artistic talent, and no creativity, plus I’m a perfectionist. So basically, the worst combination for a bullet journaler. I never let myself try it, because I was so afraid I would be bad at it.

Well, in December 2018, I decided to try it anyways. No one else would know, but me, so if I failed spectacularly, only I would witness it.

I’ve been bullet journaling for about six months now, so I’ve decided to share what I’ve learned, and my advice for beginners. And since this is a book blog, I’ve also included pictures of some of my bookish spreads!

This will be an overview of sorts, so if you want specific tutorials on how I did any of these spreads, let me know!

The Reading Slump: Causes & Cures


Reading Slump
/ˈrēdiNG sləmp/
noun
1. A period of time in which you have no motivation to read no matter how many books glare at you from your shelves.


There is no worse pain than being stuck in a reading slump. When all you see your growing TBR looming over you, but you just can’t turn open the cover.

It happens to me a lot, and being as I’m currently in one of my worst ones yet, instead of trying to read I thought I would talk about some of the common causes for reading slumps that I’ve noticed, and some cures that seem to work.

Naturally, if these worked perfectly I would never be in a reading slump, and I probably wouldn’t even be making this post, but maybe one of these tips could help you get back into the reading mood!
