Happy Friday, everyone! It's summer solstice week, so obviously, I'm doing the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag! Tradition is tradition, after all. And speaking of tradition - after two years of not being allowed to have them because of COVID, I was so excited because we were supposed to get summer solstice bonfires back! One of … Continue reading Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag 2022
Happy Friday, everyone! As I already announced in my wrap-up, you're getting a second post today! Did I intend to do this? Not really 😂 I mean, I'm kind of busy enough as it is without double posting... But, due to bad planning on my part, I did announce that I would give you guys … Continue reading Could You Guess the Books from the Emojis? – Round III || The Answers!
Happy Friday, everyone! As you can probably tell from the title, I've decided to return to my roots with an old favorite today! The emoji quizzes are back! (In other words, I have run out of inspiration for non-elaborate creative posts, so I've decided to exploit my past self's ideas instead 🙃) In case you … Continue reading Can You Guess the Book from the Emojis? (Round III)
Happy Friday, everyone! After an eventful week filled with school, lesson preparation, insanely hot weather, and me narrowly avoiding a kitchen inferno because I decided cooking and simultaneously catching up on Eurovision content was the ultimate time management hack, I've decided I'm too tired to be trusted with any creative ideas of my own and … Continue reading The Trope Tag
Happy Friday, everyone! Today, I'm here with a tag I got so excited about that putting it off longer was simply impossible! If you know me at all, you'll know that about 80% of my free time is poured into anything book- or music-related. (The remaining 20% are reserved for family, friends, pets, food, and … Continue reading The Chapters & Melodies Tag
Happy Friday, everyone! Thanks to an insanely busy week and a Tawny Man trilogy review that is still nowhere near finished despite continuously getting longer and longer and longer, I‘ve decided I get to take a bit of a break from word-vomiting! Today, I'm here with something a bit shorter, and doing Laura @ Laura's … Continue reading The Book Blogger Memory Challenge
Happy Friday, everyone! And welcome to a post that is positively ginormous even by my standards! I'm really going to have to try to keep this intro brief because, well, the rest of this most certainly isn't going to be... Seriously, when I asked for Q&A questions in celebration of A Book Owl's Corner hitting … Continue reading You Asked, I’m Answering || Welcome to a Monstrous 500-Follower-Thank-You-Q&A!
“Long before we discovered that he had fathered two children by two different women, one in Drimoleague and one in Clonakilty, Father James Monroe stood on the altar of the Church of Our Lady, Star of the Sea, in the parish of Goleen, West Cork, and denounced my mother as a whore.” First line in The … Continue reading The Know Your Buddy Tag || featuring Line @ First Line Reader
Happy Tuesday, everyone! Yep, I'm really sticking to that Friday schedule, aren't I? Don't get used to it, though 😜 Next week, we're back to normal; it's just that I didn't want to go on and on about 2021 until it's almost time to wrap up 2022... Which is why, today, you're getting the very … Continue reading 2021 Wrap-Up || Bookish Stats and Goals for 2022
Happy Friday, everyone! As promised, I'm following up on my favorite books of 2021 by giving you my least favorites!

Happy Fourth of Advent, everyone! Yes, I realize it's not Friday, but I'm posting anyway 😁 Thanks to evil COVID, which is still very successfully destroying all of my travel plans, I've had a bit of spare time on my hands, and I thought, Why not channel that into getting caught up on my tag … Continue reading The Read-Write Contest
Happy Friday, everyone! As has become tradition on this blog, I'm doing The End of the Year Book Tag way later than it's meant to be done 😁 It just doesn't feel like the end of the year until it's December and properly cold outside. There needs to be snow! And a Christmassy atmosphere! Anyway, … Continue reading The End of the Year Book Tag 2021
Happy Friday, everyone! Honestly, it feels so great to be back among the lazy! This week, I did pretty much nothing apart from sleeping, reading, music, cooking, and eating, and it was absolutely wonderful! Yup, this is definitely a pretty accurate representation of my life right now 🤣 The only thing that is putting a … Continue reading The Liebster Award Mash-Up Post
No, I’m not back so soon after saying I was going on hiatus 😅 My thesis still has me in its grasp, don’t you worry… This post is a throwback to August, back when I still had a somewhat reasonable amount of spare time on my hands. Riddhi @Whispering Stories somehow managed to convince me to do another one of these interviews, and this is the result! I hope you enjoy reading, and that this at least partially makes up for you not hearing from me for a while 😉
Hey Guys! Welcome or welcome back to my blog!
Today, I will be interviewing one of my favourite bloggers, the super-awesome, super-sweet- Naemi @A Book Owl’s Corner!

So, show her some love guys!
And now, without further ado, let’s get on with the interview!
R- Tell my readers a bit about yourself and your blog. Why do you blog about the topic you blog about?
N- Hey guys! My name is Naemi, and I’m the blogger behindA Book Owl’s Corner– which, in case the name doesn’t make it obvious, is dedicated to books and everything surrounding them!
I’ve always loved to read and write, so I guess it was only natural that I’d eventually want a platform to share all of my bookish opinions, stories, and other randomly weird thoughts… It’s just so nice to have a community that gets excited about the…

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you've all had a great start to October, and that you're reading loads of spooky books to make up for the fact that I've been reading nothing! Well, nothing except for plenty of mathematical papers, that is... My thesis is coming along slooooowly, so I'm still spending pretty much all … Continue reading Reacting to One-Star Reviews of Books I Love
Happy Friday, everyone! I've been spending all week correcting exams and feverishly working on my thesis, which needs to be handed in only a month from now. Where did all the time go?!

Happy Friday, everyone! Truth be told, I've had a horrendous week. I just lost my grandfather, and since everything happened so suddenly, I didn't make it in time to see him before he died. Which means that, to distract myself from dwelling too much on things I am powerless to change, I thought we could … Continue reading The Currently Reading Book Tag
Happy Friday, everyone! After the absolute fiasco that was last week, this week has turned out a whole lot better! I had my first post-lockdown Döner Kebab, which was absolutely delicious, went to a music store with my housemates, where we spent hours testing different pianos, visited my sister (and took some of her books … Continue reading The Feelings Book Tag
