    Welcome to Mariam’s Bookmark + September TBR

    Hi Everyone! I am almost too excited to be writing this, I actually needed to take a few breaks just writing the title!! Welcome to Mariam’s Bookmark! If you’ve been here a while, you know this blog operated under a different name – Realm of Bookish Beauty. While I loved that name and the entire blog as a whole, I found myself caught up in life, dealing with my mental health, and so many other things that kept me from really doing what I love – reading books and writing about it! I decided to change a few things, develop new habits, approach my mental health with positivity, and seeking…

    Well hello… It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I cannot express how much I’ve missed blogging. I know in my last post, I mentioned how I was back and had big plans… well… you’re probably tired of me using this phrase but… life happened! More on that in another post, but for now, I am just so excited to be back. With so much fun bookish and makeup content planned for this entire month!!! I am also so excited to catch up on all my fav fellow bloggers and bookish friends! I absolutely adore reading book reviews, and tags, and how their lives are going! More importantly, I love seeing…

    January Wrap Up + February TBR

    Dry January is finally over and so is the impromptu social media and blogging break I somehow found myself taking. I have missed interacting with everyone! I just spent the last few hours reading through all the posts that were made in January by some of my favourite bloggers and the creativity and reading vibes has been making me smile all day! In my part of the world, we are in a strict COVID-19 lockdown with a curfew. I don’t know why but I have found this second lockdown so much harder to deal with than the first one. Has anyone else found that who’ve had to go under a…

    AHHHHH Autumn is among us and I cannot be more excited! I think all of us can agree that we just want the best part of the festivities to come and wrap up this crappy year. I am in my element this month and more so next month which might be why my WIP is centered around All Hallow’s Eve! Speaking of… I announced this on my personal twitter but not on here yet… I have officially finished the FIRST draft of my WIP! *Wails about enthusiastically and starts to cry a little* A more in depth look on that will be in the next writing update, but for now,…

    March 2020 TBR

    After another crazy month where my reading took a serious seat on the back burner, I am more motivated than ever to start March with a bright and determined step forward! I absolutely love this month, not just because it’s my birth month, but also because we are that much closer to the Spring season. The clock springs forward, the sun comes back from hiding away during the dreary months of winter, and the rain is a welcomed surprise. I am on the verge of claiming that Spring might be my favourite season… it’s a neck and neck situation with Autumn. This month’s books are mostly e-copies, as March will…

    December 2019 TBR

    As the weather begins to get colder, the fire flickers and crackles, and all the yummy sweets appear, I find myself tucked deep under the covers reading until morning (while stuffing my face with said sweets)! I’m sure so many people are the same way and with the downtime around the holidays, there are more opportunities to get some reading done. I am lucky enough to have some time off this year, meaning my TBR pile will get tackled, and I might bite off more than I can chew. That being said, this list consists of some winter inspired books, old-time classics that I am dying to read, and chalk…
