November 2017: The Month of Annette Marie, Superheroes & Stranger Things {Monthly Wrap Up}

November 2017

Hi guys, and welcome to my November wrap up!

Even if I may have only read three books this month, I think I can finally say that I have beaten my reading slump. Or to be more correct, Annette Marie has beaten my reading slump, because all three books are part of her Steel & Stone series. And even though it’s “only” three books, I have sped through them, fallen in love with the characters and their world and have had my heart racing at the thought of┬ácoming home at night and getting to read, which is the joy of reading I have sorely missed the past few months.

So here’s what I’ve been up to in November!

September 2017: The Month The Reading Slump Dragged On {Monthly Wrap Up}

September 2017

Hi guys, and welcome to my September wrap up!

Well, the good news is that I managed to more or less get back on track with posting regularly in September. HUZZAH! The bad news is that my reading slump is still on and off. I mean, I WANT to read. I took 7 books with me on my 6-day holiday and I was super excited to read each and every single one. But I read just one. ONE. Plus one more during the rest of the month, which makes for a total of 2 books read this month. And boy, do I feel guilty. Am I still allowed to even call myself a book blogger here? (#dramaqueen)

Anyway, I am so looking forward to October (also known as Halloween season), so here’s hoping the October magic will work on me and turn me into a lean, mean reading machine once more. But first, let’s wrap up September!

August 2017: The Month Of… Wait, Weren’t We July Like Yesterday? {Monthly Wrap Up}

August 2017

Hi guys, and welcome to my August wrap up!

So I know it’s pretty standard to say that time flies, but seriously, where did August go? I am seriously so confused, like why is time going by so fast and I still feel like I’m getting nothing done? Even though, when I wrap it up below, it turns out I did get some things done. Just not as much as I would have wanted, ha! (Adulting is exhausting, lemme tell you!)

So without further ado, let’s get into my wrap up for August!

July 2017: The Month Of My First Hiatus (But Now I’m Back! Well, Mostly…) {Monthly Wrap Up}

July 2017

Hi guys, and welcome to my July wrap up!

As you may recall, I announced my first-ever semi-hiatus at the beginning of July. It was a tough decision, but I had been in a slump for too long already and I needed a little break and time to figure out a new blogging & life balance. And though I felt SUPER guilty about it, I’m happy I did it. I may not be 100% back yet, but I have a new-found drive to read and blog again. So please be patient with me over the next few weeks as I slowly but surely get back to blogging! In the meantime, let’s get into what I did during this hiatus:

June 2017: The Month of Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes… & A Blogging Announcement {Monthly Wrap Up}

June 2017

Hi guys, and welcome to my June wrap up!

June was pretty… eventful. I actually didn’t read a lot, I didn’t listen to a lot of music and I didn’t watch a lot of movies and tv. But some great things did happen to me and a lot of things changed. Things that have also led me to make a blogging announcement. I’ll explain everything in my post below, but first let’s talk about what I did read/listen to/watch in June!

May 2017: The Month Of Adorable Contemporaries, Disappointing Reads & Music AND Lots Of Korean {Monthly Wrap Up}

May 2017 Wrap Up

Hi guys, and welcome to my May wrap up!

As you may know, I’ve been in a bit of a reading (and blogging) slump for a few months now. But while I still have some slump after-effects, I can safely say that reading-wise May has been A LOT BETTER. I read quite a few books, and a lot of nice, fluffy, feel-good contemporaries amongst them, which I credit completely for helping me get out of my slump. That, and my k-pop and k-drama obsession, which I still love to pieces.

So without further ado, let’s talk about everything that happened in May!

April 2017: The Month I Finally Read Illuminae, Watched A Ton Of Kdrama And Fell In Love With BIGBANG & BTS {Monthly Wrap Up}

April 2017

Hi and welcome to my April wrap up!

April has been a little weird and off in a few ways…

Unfortunately my reading slump, which started in March, continued in April and as such, I only read 3 books. On the bright side, two of those books were five-star reads… I’m hoping they will have helped shake off this slump and I’m back on track for May.

My blogging slump has also continued so I am sorry for the reduced number of posts and huge delays in commenting and job hopping. On the bright side, I did get a few posts up I loved working on, like my top ten fandoms or the pros and cons of telling people about your blog.

So without further ado, let’s get into my April!

March 2016: The Month Of Reading Slumps, Divide, The Death Note Musical, J-Dramas and… K-Pop? {Monthly Wrap Up}

March 2017

Hi and welcome to my March wrap up!

My March was… well, quite different from January and February readingwise. For the first two months of the year I was on a reading roll. I read an amazing amount of books in those months. But in March, it all came to a standstill and the reading slump hit hard! No particular reason, I just haven’t felt like reading at all. I also put myself on a book-buying ban for the whole month of March, so I could catch up on my TBR and the books already on my shelf. So… THAT WENT WELL.

If not reading, what have I been doing with my free time? Well, I’ve mostly been binge-watching Japanese drama series and anime. Yep. I am curious to see what April will bring. I do hope to get back to reading because I do miss it, but I just don’t want to force myself.

So anyway, here’s my complete March wrap up.

February 2017: The Month Of Kitsunes, Greek Myths, Shinigamis and… Spider-Man Music? {Monthly Wrap Up}

February 2017

Hi and welcome to my February wrap up!

February has been filled with many new obsessions. I don’t think I’ve ever read more in my life, I fell in love with a new fantasy book series on Japanese mythology, I got back into some Greek mythology fantasy books, I fell deeper into the black hole that is anime and I discovered some new (to me) music.

But… it also caused a bit of a blogging slump and for that I’d like to apologize to my blogger friends. I’ve been so sucked into my new obsessions that I’ve been slacking on blogging. I haven’t felt like writing a lot of posts so I stuck with just the basic: Top Ten Tuesday posts and reviews. I’ve also been so behind on commenting. So… I’m really sorry! Here’s hoping March will be better on that front.

Anyway, here’s my wrap up of all those obsessions:

The Girl Behind The Book: 10 Facts About Me {Top Ten Tuesday}

10 Facts About Me

As hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about a subject I have no doubt you’re all waiting to hear about… me!

To change it up a bit for this post, I thought I’d mix up a few bookish facts (this is a book blog after all) with some more personal facts. From the basic dry facts to the more personal and slightly embarassing facts, I lay it all out here! Well maybe not all, but let’s start with ten…
