Books, Coffee? Let's Chat., Of Pens & Paper

LET’S TALK (what i’ve been doing + coming soon)

I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve written a chatty/casual/coffee-talk post, so I’m here today with a “let’s talk” type post.

Some things I’ll be discussing:

  • my personal life (a few little bits)
  • my internet life
  • my reading this month
  • what’s coming for Of Pens & Paper


Of course, there’s been school. And homework. Which by the way has been awful – so much! Not to mention the tests we’ve been getting every single week…

However, on a brighter note, this weekend I’ve been redecorating my living space! I’ve been inspired by the whole Bohemian/hippie/witchy style recently (being an avid fan of the occult – no, I do not worship Satan) and so have started trying to create a similar look.

I’ve been trawling through Pinterest for some inspiration, and have made a (private) board with ideas I’d like to try, mostly involving sticks. 😀

Also, I’ve been trying to find where I can get crystals/gemstones that aren’t too expensive. So if you know of an Etsy store, website, etc. please let me know!


I’m sort of disappointed with my reading so far this month – just looking at the date now, I realize that the month is almost over, and I’ve read x books.

However, Wonder Woman: Warbringer has arrived from the Book Depository! Gaze at the beauty:


And… erm… I may have finished it already. #guilty

So maybe September was a “restful reading” month.


And September was also a “restful Goodreads” month, because I was barely online at all! Time just seems to fly between school, homework, music, (try to do some) blogging, and trying to get outside for some air. But I’m not too worried about Goodreads, because I’m really just trying to keep track of my books.

Blogging has been pretty higgledy-piggledy this month – I tend to get a coupel of posts out at the start of the week, but by Thursday I’m just too tired to bother. Please bear with me until I get this whole time-management thing sorted out, and I promise you’ll get more regular posts.

Thankfully, though, I’ve actually been more active on Pinterest this week! My account has been sadly lying dormant for a while, but I’ve revived it and changed up my profile a bit – new photo, aesthetic board names, as well as some new boards!

Here’s a sneak peek:
