#TomeTopple TBR

Hey, everyone! Today I’ll be sharing with you guys my Tome Topple TBR which I am really excited about because I’ll be starting a new book series that has been on my shelf for three years now. I’ve seen and watched a lot of participants’ videos and Instagram posts in the previous rounds. Seeing and watching them read their tomes made me feel giddy and challenged to read the tomes from my shelf too.  It’s Tome Topple Readathon’s 12th round already and I think Sam’s planning on hosting another one around November, so if this works, I’ll probably participate again then.

For those who do not know yet, the Tome Topple Readathon is a readathon where the main goal is to read as much books over 500 pages in two weeks! This readathon will run from August 8th to 21st (in your timezone). This readathon is founded by Sam from @thoughtsontomes and co-hosted by other bookish people in the book community.

Hey, everyone! Cheese, it’s already the end of July — I can hardly believe it. Time is flying by way too fast even when most of us are stuck at home during this time, eh? Anyway, I hope all of you are doing well and are making the most out of all the time we have to spend indoors. In my side of the world, July 31 is a holiday, so I’ve spent the whole day catching up with the books that I’m reading, shoot my books, watched anime, and now I’m writing this blog post.

Book Mail: My First Ever Fullybooked Online Purchase

20200516_162217_0000_copy_2560x2560

Hi, everyone! I’m back with another book mail. These arrived along with the other books that I posted before but decided to post them separately because I bought them separately, too. Haha! It just so happened that I had them shipped to my boyfriend’s place and he had it delivered to me all at the same time.

To be honest, I think I’ve bought so many books this year than I ever did in my whole life. The quarantine keeps me feeling anxious and overthinking most of the time and my only escape is online shopping and looking forward to my parcels arriving. Most of my purchases are books (some skincare, of course, but only if I run out of stocks); books keep me so preoccupied which help me avoid overthinking. So without further adieu, here are the titles for this haul:

Best Books of 2020 So Far

Hi, everyone! I hope you are all doing okay and you are all able to cope up with the events happening worldwide recently. It’s been a tough year, generally speaking, but to get my mind off all the cruel things happening around us, I turned to my books for solace. Just like what I used to do when I was kid and so 2020 instantly became a great reading year for me so far. My Goodreads goal is to read 30 books this year and I’ve already read 22 books (so I will probably adjust my reading challenge to 40 or 50).

This “tag” is an annual bookish thing that has been going on around the bookish community which, to be honest, I haven’t done in a while. Since I did read a lot of books so far this year, I decided to do it again. Wow, I can’t even remember the last time I did this (and I can’t even remember if that particular post still exists in my blog since I migrated to WordPress from Tumblr just last year).

Book Mail: Septimus Heap by Angie Sage + Percy Jackson & the Olympians

20200516_162217_0000_copy_2560x2560

Another book mail that I received during the quarantine is the Septimus Heap series (minus the seventh book) by Angie Sage. My boyfriend bought it for me and sent it to me via Lalamove along with the other book orders that I had shipped at his place. Continue reading
