How is it March tomorrow?! Howwwww? I don’t understand this, before I started blogging months dragged by, now it’s like they were here and BAM gone. Anyhoo grab a cuppa, a snack and settle down as I rewind the past month for you all. What I got up to, how I’ve been, books I’ve read and more!
- reply & return comments
- blog hop at least once a week
- schedule ahead
- Fanfic Writing?
- Read at least 3 books
- GYST days
- Weds = Social Media Free
- Try and sort my sleep schedule
Ok I’m just gonna say SORRY. I am aware I’m super behind on replying to Feb comments. I have been blog hopping in general though, usually once a day. GYST days were again super useful for me and I’ve managed to stick to have a social media free weds.
My sleep schedule…funny story. Somehow I managed to change it from going sleep at like 2am and waking up at 10/11am (if I had college I’d just lose a lot of sleep!) to going to bed at 10pm and waking up roughly at 6/7am.
Basically I’m going to bed anywhere from 22:00-00:00 and getting up from anywhere 6:00-10:00. Like the latest I’ve been getting up at, is just gone 10am. For me, that’s like a huge improvement and honestly it’s helped me in so many ways already. So I’m going to be striving to keep this up going into March!

Month of love is officially over. Oh by the way, why do the supermarkets think it’s ok to bring out the Easter eggs in late Jan/early Feb?! AT LEAST WAIT TILL MARCH NO ONE WANTS TO PLAN THAT FAR AHEAD FOR BUYING EGGS
or maybe they do hmm
February has actually been a time and a half. Honestly, so much has been happening despite my erm…lack of reading. *sighs* I’m trying to spin a positive light on it, I’m not gonna force myself to read when I’m not in the mood too. It’s not like I’ve not got a ton of backlog reviews still to work my way through haha.
Bookending Spring 2019 is literally a month away. Holy firecrackers someone save Sam and I xD I’m only semi kidding, it’s just we’re both Type A’s and we like things to follow a plan and structure. More on that later though!
Speaking of Sam (dunno how she’s not sick of me yet) we set up a Discord Server called Bookish Collision, we’ve been working on it for most of Feb. So it’s only recently been open to the public. You can find out more about that later on too 😉
As for my life…hmmm I bought a bullet journal and watercolour brush pens. My excitement is erm… !!!!!! that doubled because its dotted paper and YOU GUYS I’VE GRADUATED FROM FREAKING LINED NOTEBOOKS AND I GET TO ORGANISE THINGS IN A NOTEBOOK WITH PRETTY PENS
*clears throat* I’m also having a BuJo wrap up post go up the day before these rewinds go up. So make sure to keep your eyes peeled for that next month hehe. I’ve also started cross stitching, this is gonna be my first proper cross stitch project. If you’re on the Discord server/s you know…if not *chuckles* you’ll have to wait till I finish it.
Bookending Spring 2019
We have hosts and the prompts are…well they’re awesome and I can’t wait for you all to see them. I am so stoked for the Spring event! So much planning, organising and I really hope you’ll all take part somehow. The Tidyathon will be running alongside it, with yours truly shrieking about all the tidying she hasn’t done yet 😉
Oh hey this is the server Sam and I created. It’s a place for all book lovers, whether you’re a book blogger, bookstagrammer or booktuber. Hell if you’re just a reader you’re welcome to join, you will need either a twitter or goodreads which can verify you are indeed a reader. (just because we don’t want trolls ruining our bookish fun!)
The whole idea of the server, is to bring the bookish community together. We can also support everyone better, across the platforms which is great, spreading love is so important in this community. Particularly across platforms I feel, you can also make friends too.
At the moment we’re still a smol server, but we truly hope you’ll swing on by and join in the fun. ❤
