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.

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!

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.

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.

My favorite books of 2019

The time has come to finally talk about my favorite books of the year! I have read 135 books this year, and today I'm narrowing that down to my top nine books of the year.

November Wrap-Up | writing a novel + reading anticipated books

Happy December, all! Well, it's that time again, time to wrap up the last month of my life. November was dominated by National Novel Writing Month for me, which I'll talk more about later.

September Wrap-Up | Greek mythology and Welsh kings

It's (almost) October, my favorite month of the year, and I'm so excited! September has been another month with nothing major to report. Went to a friend's wedding, painted my sister's old bedroom, got excited about the cooling weather...and of course, read lots of books. I read 12 books total, and interestingly enough, many of … Continue reading September Wrap-Up | Greek mythology and Welsh kings
