2019 in review: the best songs of 2019

And the last episode of my 2019 in review series is finally here! Yes I released all four parts on the same day… I have A LOT of posts that need to go up before January is already HALF OVER so it couldn’t be helped. Hopefully it has been a nice welcome back to my blog after my LONGGGG hiatus? Like with my top 5 books post, these aren’t in any particular order, but just a collection of my favourite albums and songs of the year!

2019 in review: top 5 books of 2019

Welcome to 2019 in review episode 2! There was no way for me to decide which of these was my favourite, so instead of pitting my favourite books together, here are my favourite books of the year!


Perfume by Patrick Süskind

This book was one that took me a long time to read, but I like to think that I was simply savouring its deliciousness. It was definitely worth it when I finished it, and I gave it 5 stars.

Perfume is a modern classic which was published by the German author Patrick Süskind in 1985. It is set in 18th Century France and follows the story of Grenouille, a man with an amazing sense of smell who feels apart from society. It follows him as he escapes the smells of the city to explore the world of scents, which eventually leads him to becoming a rather horrific murder in the name of creating the ‘ultimate perfume’.

2019 in review: reading stats

Hello everyone! It’s been so long- over 6 months!!! Apologies for the impromptu, unannounced hiatus: coursework kind of took over my life, I wasn’t really reading, and I didn’t really have time to blog. Now, though, most of my coursework is finished and I only have exams left, so I can resume regularly schedule, and hopefully improved, programming! Starting with wrapping up and updating you on the little reading I did manage to do in 2019.

Today, I will be running through some stats (which I love) and later (probably later today, because I’m trying to get these wrap up posts out quickly so we can move onto looking at the future) I will tell you all about my favourite books as well!

Without further ado, here we go!
