The intimidating TBR tag

Copie de Copie de Wanderlust GIFT IDEAS

Dear readers,

I started 2016 with more than 70 books in my TBR pile. That, was intimidating. Realising that having such a huge amount of un-read books was stressing me out and messing up with my anxiety, I decided to start the operation Kill The Beast. And, surprisingly, it worked.

To this day, I only have 20 books on my TBR pile and it hasn’t been really growing much. I now love my small TBR; I have enough books to let me stare at them for hours before deciding which one to read but not enough to drive me nuts.

This is why I wanted today to do a tag about our TBRs and to present you in a not-so-funny way all the books that I have left to read.

(This tag was created by Jean Bookishthoughts but the original creator’s video is now private.)

On anxiety, cylothymia, social media and me

Dear readers,

As today is #WorldMentalHealthDay, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to start posting about mental health. If you don’t know, I suffer from cyclothymia and anxiety, and talking about it is important to me. It would have helped me a lot when I was younger to find those kind of articles, and this is why I decided to start posting about it.

For this first post, I will talk about the impact of social media in my life next to my anxiety and cyclothymia.

TW: hospital, suicide, coma

My #Victober TBR | 2017

Copie de Wanderlust GIFT IDEAS (3)

Dear readers,

I cannot believe that itย finallyย is October. You may not know, but it actually is my favourite month of the year. As for someone who hates the heat and who is literally allergic to the sun (I swear, I am a nightmare), Autumn is my paradise. Seeing all the leaves on the floor, being able to wear my sweaters again, walking home while it’s dark outside and working with the sound of the rain make me more than happy and I now feel alive again. In a few days, it’ll be my birthday then Halloween and I can’t wait to properly enjoy this month.

This year, however, October is even more special to me, and it’s because I’m participating in #Victober.

September wrap-up, favourites and other

Wanderlust GIFT IDEAS

โ€œAutumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple.โ€ย 

โ€•ย J.K. Rowling,ย Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Dear readers,

I feel as if September lasted way too longโ€• my anxiety was at its worst, I had several financial problems, something happened at my job which made me feel extremly bad and going back to university reminded me that it was my last year and that I was basically about to play my whole future. In a few words, let’s say that September didn’t go so well.
