September Wrap-Up | falling into autumn πŸ

Wow, it's October. The pros: spooky season! Pumpkin spice everything! Halloween! Fall leaves and colder weather! The cons: the years really do start coming and they don't stop coming. September was yet another weird month. Here on the west coast of the US, we spent about a week completely covered in smoke to the point … Continue reading September Wrap-Up | falling into autumn πŸ

August Wrap-Up | less blogging, but slightly more reading

Taylor Swift was right: August DID slip away like a moment in time. I'm starting to feel like a broken record with these wrap-ups, because August was really just...another month. A month of waiting, of alternating between numb to everything that's happening and getting so angry I want to scream, a month of wondering if … Continue reading August Wrap-Up | less blogging, but slightly more reading

July Wrap-Up | not a ton of reading or motivation in general

Somehow I blinked and the entire month of July blew past?? Not sure how that happened. So in July, I managed to get done almost none of what I planned (including utterly failing Camp NaNoWriMo) and time just kind of passed most days. I've been having difficulty lately even doing things that usually bring me … Continue reading July Wrap-Up | not a ton of reading or motivation in general

June Wrap-Up | incredible books and horrifying world events

Can somebody please explain to me how we're already halfway through 2020? What even is time anymore?? February feels like twenty years ago but at the same time it does not feel like it should be July yet. So, June was a month. Surprise surprise, the world is still a mess. I continue to be … Continue reading June Wrap-Up | incredible books and horrifying world events

May Wrap-Up | 2020 will not give us a break, huh?

Well, it's the end of another month. Right now, it doesn't feel right to pretend that May was just another great month, because it wasn't. Honestly, it's hard to feel anything but pessimistic given the state of everything in the world right now. Every single day is like "Oh, you thought that was bad? Here's … Continue reading May Wrap-Up | 2020 will not give us a break, huh?

April Wrap-Up | clinging to books during a pandemic

I don't know exactly what's happening with time right now, but March lasted approximately five years but April went by in two heartbeats?? I guess a part of it is that I've kind of just settled into this new normal, which is weird in its own way considering how horrible the world is as a … Continue reading April Wrap-Up | clinging to books during a pandemic

March Wrap-Up | what a year this month has been

So remember in my February wrap-up when I said that nothing had really happened to me all month? Well I think March heard that and decided that Everything was going to happen All At Once. This month has been rough, I'm not gonna lie. It's strange to think that at the beginning of March, I … Continue reading March Wrap-Up | what a year this month has been

February Wrap-Up | two years of blogging down

Happy March! Okay, I know that February is the shortest month of the year, but it always manages to take me by surprise when it ends. And we even had an extra day this year! I just have no sense of the passage of time, I guess. February has been...a month. I don't know what … Continue reading February Wrap-Up | two years of blogging down

January Wrap-Up | the ten (thousand) books of January

Happy end of the month! So January is ending, huh? And we're already 1/12 of the way through 2020? Yikesβ„’. This month, I read a lot, wrote a lot, stressed about my future, etc. - the usual. It snowed, which meant the whole area was essentially shut down for a few days because no one … Continue reading January Wrap-Up | the ten (thousand) books of January

December Wrap-Up | finishing off 2019 with a reading slump

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful start to 2020. Can you believe we're in a new decade?? Today, I'm here to wrap-up my reading in December. And...well, there's not much to wrap-up. I read only five books in December, way lower than my average of twelve, and two of those … Continue reading December Wrap-Up | finishing off 2019 with a reading slump
