April 2020: The Month I’ve Been Even More Thankful For Books, Music & TV Than Ever Before {Monthly Wrap Up}

April wrap up

Hi everybody, and welcome to my April wrap up!

I hope you are all doing well in these weird times? I got through a month and a half of lockdown relatively well. I’m still healthy, as are my friends and family, so that’s obviously most important. And I honestly didn’t have too many issues with being stuck at home as I kept myself busy. I worked in the garden, organized my Spotify playlists, cleaned out my inbox, sorted my administration, cleaned out every cupboard in the house and went on a lot of nice walks. If you don’t count the constant anxiety and crippling worries over mine and everyone I know’s health and financial status, everything’s been fine… Here’s hoping things will slowly get back to normal next month!

In the meantime, here’s what I’ve been up to in April:

March 2020: The Month The World Became A Dystopian Novel Prologue & I Read Some Books {Monthly Wrap Up}

March wrap up

Hi everybody, and welcome to my March wrap up!

This feels like a weird wrap up to write, since it’s been such a weird time.  As you all are very well aware, the Corona Virus has become a full-blown pandemic that is taking over the world. Personally, I’ve been at home since mid March – I’ve been technically unemployed since my company organizes international courses and well it’s no surprise that there are no courses right now, so no work to be done from home either. But I’m home and doing my best to stay safe and healthy and follow the regulations, which are basically to stay at home, unless for crucial things like groceries. I hope every one of you is safe and healthy and so are your family and friends.

These are scary times, and hearing news reports is making me anxious as hell so I’m coping the best way I know how – by disappearing as much as possible into fictional worlds. Which is how I did get quite some reading done this month.

So without further ado, here’s what I’ve been up to this month:

January 2020: The Month That Lasted A Year {Monthly Wrap Up}

January wrap up

Hi everybody, and welcome to my January wrap up!

I don’t want to add to the thousands of people and memes saying that January took forever, but really though… January took FOREVER! I do think that the months of January and February usually are the worst months of the year – it’s dark, it’s cold, the excitement about the holidays is over. But that just means we have to focus on all the good things some more, don’t we? And the good thing is that I actually got quite some reading done in January, which I’m happy about. And I got back into blogging, after 1-2 months of semi-hiatus. (I realize I never did a post announcing my return but oh well… HERE I AM!) So pretty good right?

Anyway, here’s what I’ve been up to in January:

December 2019: The Month of Christmas Fluff and Re-Reads {Monthly Wrap Up}

December Wrap Up

Hi everybody, and welcome to my December wrap up!

Happy New Year! 2019’s been pretty weird reading and blogging wise for me. Readingwise because I made the switch to (mostly) audiobooks this year and bloggingwise because I felt like I was on hiatus most of the time… I’m trying to get back to normal in 2020, but first here’s what I’ve been up to in December.

November 2019: The Month of Dukes, Thieves, Queens and Mamamoo {Monthly Wrap Up}

November wrap up

Hi everybody, and welcome to my November wrap up!

Technically, I’m still in semi-hiatus, which I did because I’m stressing for time and wanted to take the time to prep some posts in advance, even though we’re over a month in said hiatus and I’ve prepared zero posts…. oops. But this may not have been such a bad thing, because I’m itching to get back to blogging anyway so I’m sure I’ll get back to it soon enough! Especially since I have a blogoversary coming up in January so it would be weird not to celebrate 🙂 In the meantime though, here’s what I’ve been up to in November!

October 2019: The Month Of Hiatusses, Deja Vu & The Best Birthday Surprise {Monthly Wrap Up}

October wrap up

Hi everybody, and welcome to my October wrap up!

October’s been pretty weird, as I finally made the decision to take a semi-hiatus from blogging. I wanted to take this time to work ahead and prepare some posts so I can stress less about getting posts up in time. Alas, we’re 3 weeks further and I’ve prepared exactly 0 posts yet so oops… this hiatus may take a bit longer than expected…

In the meantime, though, read on to see what I’ve read, listened to and watched last month.

September 2019: The Month Of Witches, Demons and Dreamcatcher Songs {Monthly Wrap Up}

September wrap up

Hi everybody, and welcome to my September wrap up!

Even though my September has been super busy and I’ve been an exhausted mess for weeks, I still managed to read 6 books. I can only thank audiobooks and the fact that now that the holidays are over, I’m once again stuck in traffic for almost 2 hours a day. Just me, myself and my audiobook 🙂 Oh, and not one, but TWO ARCS FROM MY FAVORITE AUTHOR. So you see, not all that bad! Plus, we have the OFFICIAL START OF FALL, MY FAVORITE SEASON WOOP!

Read on to see what I’ve read, listened to and watched this month.
