Announcement: 12 (or so) Days of Blogmas

After last year, when I decided to bring back Blogmas, I wanted to do it again as it is safe to say that I was doing so well with the blog earlier in the year, but recently, well, I've been lacking. Also, it's that time of the year for wrap-ups and favourite books I wanted to share. As per usual, there is quite a lot, and I want to write and hype my favourite books of the year as I don't do that much any more and I should because a lot f them are underhyped. 

I think that this year has not been the one for anyone. It is safe to say that I have been swamped this year balancing university and work so blogging kind of went to the wayside and let's just say now I'm back. Hopefully! (I will say more tomorrow.)

Due to the changes that have happened this year in my life and the world, I have a lot of thoughts in my brain that I want to get out and so many ideas that I want to write about that have just stayed in my drafts. This is the opportunity to do all of the ideas so I'm not sure how long this will go on for as I have to admit I haven't planned it so we will see. 

There is be a variety of posts from favourite books of the year, to essays, to book reviews so join the ride! Hopefully, I will be successful!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I'm sorry if the year is not the one for you, but hopefully, 2021 will be a better year, and we get a better Christmas and time for family. 


See you soon, 


Amy

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
