Hello everyone! How are you? As I am writing this I realized that I haven’t posted a monthly wrap up in a long time. The reason for that is because in the last months I was either too preoccupied with my full-time contract job or I haven’t read enough books in a month to post a wrap up. But this month I have read a handful of books to write a post about so that’s what I’m doing today! Continue reading “May Wrap Up:”
Last month wasn’t the greatest reading month. I only read two books which is the lowest number I ever hit in a month. The good news is that I got a pretty good haul including an ARC which I haven’t had in a long time, and is connected to some really good news that I can’t wait to share with you all! I don’t want to announce the goods news yet so you will have to wait and see, but I will give you a small hint: it’s got something to do with the ARC for Tell the Wind and Fire that I received from Random House Canada! And that’s all I’m going to say about that. Continue reading “February Bookhaul + Wrapup:”
How was everyone’s first month in 2016? I felt like it flown by really fast. Last month I wanted to try something new on my blog so I started doing the Stacking the Shelves meme on Mondays. It worked out great for sharing new titles that I bought over the weekends whether they were recommendations from the blogosphere or a new book that I found at a bargain price. Since Stacking the Shelves is all about sharing what books we bought, borrowed, and received over the week, I’m skipping my monthly ritual of posting a book haul for January, and doing a wrap up instead. Continue reading “January Wrap Up!”
Before I begin I like to apologize for not posting my November wrapup. I’ve been working on a full-time position last year that it was so hard to keep up with my blogging. I had such a difficult time reading too, that I’m sad to say that my November wrapup was very meager. I remember only reading one or two books but that’s it. I think that was the reason I didn’t post a wrapup for that month because I didn’t see the point of discussing only a couple of books. Either that or I was just so preoccupied with my job and the stress that carried with it that I had no energy at all to sit and write. Even writing one review was difficult enough as I would find myself staring at my computer trying to come up with one sentence, and when I do, I suddenly get a writer’s block (if you call that a writer’s block). Continue reading “My December Wrapup + Mini Book Haul”
I’ve been so focused on my job last month and keeping up to date with my blog that I hardly had enough time to read except during the weekends. The only problem with this I ended up reading a measly four books. Yes, only four. That’s how busy I was last month and I’m so disappointed with myself for reading so little. Worse is that I had a hard time keeping up with my blog without reaching a slump, which has recently come to pass but before that, I didn’t even feel like writing a review for the last book I finished.
Summer is over folks! September has arrived and fall will soon be upon us. August is gone and that means another monthly wrap up. With only one month of summer left, I thought I could finish the season with a lot of reading before the fall releases came out. Sadly, I only read 7 books but I did start reading a new series before the sequel is released, so that’s an advantage. Continue reading “August Wrap Up:”
Hello everybody! How’s everyone’s summer going? I’m so sorry for posting my July wrap up so late. I’m a little behind with my reviews as well; I have 3 reviews that I will try and post next week and this includes books that I recently read last month. After that my blog schedule should return back to normal.
I hate to be the one to say but it’s August and you know what that means: 3 more weeks until September. So there is only 3 weeks of summer left and that means 3 more weeks of summer reading before September rolls in. Since summer is near at its end, I want to focus on squeezing in as many contemporary books as I could and focus on series that I either need to catch up on or start reading before September because that is when the new books come out. But I will worry about my TBR later, right now I want to get this wrap up and book haul out of the way. Continue reading “Late July Wrap up + Very Small Book Haul”
I know it’s late to post my wrap up and bookhaul from last month so I decided to combine this into one post.
Two months ago I mentioned in my last wrap up that I would be reading more sequels in June. Sadly that did not happen as I can be quite the mood reader. Instead I read a bunch of graphic novels and contemporary books as I am trying to break into the habit of reading only fantasy. I’m pretty satisfied with the books that I’ve read; graphic novels probably don’t count as actual books but I’m still including them in my wrap up anyways. Continue reading “June Wrap Up + Bookhaul:”
