Birthday Book Haul! | 2021

Happy 23rd Birthday to me! Well, it was last week anyway. I think I can officially class myself as “twenty-something” in my biographies, or, even scarier, “mid-twenties”.

And no, 23 really does not feel that different than 22, except that I can’t sing a Taylor Swift song about myself anymore. Sad times.

Unboxing | Books By Nature April 2021 | Hidden in the Shadows

If you read my blog post from February, you will know I was blown away by this new book box, and I was so excited to get the next box! This box is bi-monthly, meaning every other month in this context, so we’re about to open the next release.

This box was made in collaboration with the author, and you can follow Books By Nature on their Instagram here! I love boxes that are made in collaboration, because they feel so personally. The author also included some extra bits in the box, which made me feel pretty spoilt!

Unboxing | Books That Matter April 2021 | Dare to be Powerful

I’m so excited to be sharing with you one of my favourite Books That Matter boxes so far! I’d like to apologise as I completely forgot to post my March unboxing – so check out my Instagram to see a full unboxing on there.

This box was a double-book unboxing and that made me super excited, especially when I saw that one was a Penguin Modern Classics edition that I don’t own! I am still collecting these books, and I think they make fantastic gifts, and great editions to any book box.

What is Project 10, and should I do it?

One of my “resolutions” every year since about 2016 has been “buy less books”. And I say “resolutions” in quotation marks because I almost never adhere to it.

I do only occasionally go out of my way to buy books – such as in the case of new releases, or if I’m looking for something in particular. Normally, I’m just browsing and think, “Ooh, may as well.”

With that in mind, this year I thought I would tackle it differently, and allowed myself 3 purchases a month. Well, that backfired very quickly and now I have bought over 20 in the first three months the year!

When I saw “Project 10” floating around on Instagram, I thought it might be fun to try. But what actually is it?

My Book Cart! | what is a book cart and how to use one

Ever since Matilda pulled her cart home from the library, stuffed with books, I’ve wanted my own portable bookshelf too.

Back in the years of 2018-2019, smaller versions of Matilda’s book carts were all the rage on bookish Instagram and YouTube! And after thinking about it for a long time I decided to get one about two years ago.

A New Book Box! | Books By Nature February 2021 | Alternate Realities

Today I am super excited to be sharing with you an unboxing of a new UK book box called Books by Nature! I found this book box on Instagram and bought their first box which arrived in February.

This book box is bi-monthly, so releases every other month. At present, you have to buy each box individually, although I think I’ll want to get every release of this box so I hope a subscription will be added in the future!

UNBOXING | Books That Matter February 2021 | GIRL, GODDESS, OTHER

Today I am going to be sharing my unboxing of Books That Matter’s February 2021 box! The theme of this month was GIRL, GODDESS, OTHER.

Overall, I really enjoyed this box! I thought it was very aesthetically pleasing in lovely lilac colours, and the contents all worked really well together. Sometimes I think you can get book boxes that look like 7 different people each added an item, but not here.
