January Wrap-Up

Today’s post is my very first monthly wrap-up! I’ll be posting one of these on the first Friday of each month, giving you an overview of my reading for the previous month and a mini-review of all the books I’ve finished. I’ll also be including a little look at my stats and will be checking back against my reading goals for the year to keep myself accountable. Hope you enjoy!

Review: The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe

Nora O’Malley’s been a lot of girls. As the daughter of a con-artist who targets criminal men, she grew up as her mother’s protégé. But when mom fell for the mark instead of conning him, Nora pulled the ultimate con: escape.

For five years Nora’s been playing at normal. But she needs to dust off the skills she ditched because she has three problems:

#1: Her ex walked in on her with her girlfriend. Even though they’re all friends, Wes didn’t know about her and Iris.

#2: The morning after Wes finds them kissing, they all have to meet to deposit the fundraiser money they raised at the bank. It’s a nightmare that goes from awkward to deadly, because:

#3: Right after they enter bank, two guys start robbing it.

The bank robbers may be trouble, but Nora’s something else entirely. They have no idea who they’re really holding hostage…

My 2020 Reading Wrap-Up: Thoughts and Stats from a Very Strange Year

Sigh, what to say about 2020? I know so many of us, including myself, had so many big plans for this year before the metaphorical rug was pulled straight out from under us. However, it’s important to recognise the good things that came from this crazy year, no matter how small — I started my bookstgram, this blog and I met so many new, lovely people in the book community, none of which would have happened if I wasn’t stuck at home twiddling my thumbs.

A major upside of 2020 for me was that I had an absolute knock-out reading year! I read more this year than I ever have before, read out of my comfort zone and found so many new favourite books and authors to take with me into this year.

I see the annual Reading Survey pop up every year in the blogosphere and around booktube so I thought this year I’d have a go at using questions as prompts for my wrap-up! I’ll also be including stats from my Goodreads Year in Books and my own reading spreadsheet I kept throughout the year which was a template by Ali at HardbackHoarder.

This is going to be a very long post so maybe grab a brew, get yourself comfy and lets get started.

Review: The Ravens by Kass Morgan and Danielle Paige

Kappa Rho Nu isn’t your average sorority. Their parties are notorious. Their fundraisers are known for being Westerly College’s most elaborate affairs. But beneath the veil of Greek life and prestige, the sisters of Kappu Rho Nu share a secret: they’re a coven of witches. For Vivi Deveraux, being one of Kappa Rho Nu’s Ravens means getting a chance to redefine herself. For Scarlett Winters, a bonafide Raven and daughter of a legacy Raven, pledge this year means living up to her mother’s impossible expectations of becoming Kappa Rho Nu’s next president. Scarlett knows she’d be the perfect candidate — that is, if she didn’t have one human-sized skeleton in her closet…. When Vivi and Scarlett are paired as big and little for initiation, they find themselves sinking into the sinister world of blood oaths and betrayals.

New Year’s Reading Resolutions

Happy new year, lovelies! 💛

Question for you: do you set yourself new year’s resolutions? Usually I only ever set myself a reading goal for how many books I want to read and a handful of personal resolutions but this year there’s a few things I’d really like to achieve with my reading. I’m going to try my hardest to hold myself accountable too, I even put a tracker in the beginning of my reading journal so I can reflect on whether or not I’ve met each goal every month.

In no particular order, here’s five of my reading goals for 2021:

2021 Reading Journal Set-Up

I’ve been keeping a reading journal for about two years now – I use it to keep track of what I’ve read throughout the year, to understand my own thoughts about the books I’ve read and to plot out my reviews for them. This is just one of the many ways I keep track of my reading (keep an eye out for a blog post on that soon) but it’s definitely my favourite method I currently use. I’ve always really enjoyed then physical act of writing things down, if I could hand-write blog posts and instagram captions I would, so I much prefer this to note-taking apps or word docs. It’s super practical for me but, like a bullet journal, it also allows me to get a little creative with my spreads.

Welcome to the Blog!

Hello, lovelies!

Welcome to my very own corner little corner of the bookternet. My name is Quinn and I’m a 22 year old bookseller from the UK. I run the bookstagram account @pagesofquinn so if you’ve stumbled over here from there – hello, thank you for joining me!

I started this blog as a place to share my more in-depth thoughts about all things bookish! Bookstagram is still my home platform but sometimes when I want to scream about a book I need bit more space than my beloved instagram captions can give me. I’d love to use this blog to post proper reviews, recommendations and other bookish content that (hopefully) you lovely lot will enjoy.

Thanks again for checking out my blog, watch this space for new posts or, if you fancy, use the button in the sidebar to subscribe and get updates sent straight to your inbox.

Lots of love,
Quinn 💛
