Hi everybody!

As you may or may not know from my monthly wrap ups, after a very long search, my husband and I have bought a house. It took a few monts for the papers to get finalized, but this week we finally got the keys and the house is ours!

Before we can move in however, we do still have quite some renovations to do. And I’m talking big renovations – we need a new kitchen, new bathroom, new floors, new heating and new pipes among other things. (I’m also hoping to get my own little reading nook in, so you can imagine I’m excited about that!) So I’ll probably be extremely busy in the next few weeks or probably even months.

What does this mean for the blog? Well, for starters, I REALLY don’t want to take a hiatus. This blog and this community is kind of like my happy place and I don’t want to stay away from my happy place for too long. But I also have to be honest with myself – I have only few posts already scheduled and I already am behind on commenting and bloghopping (so sorry if I haven’t been by your blog in a while, I’m hoping to catch up soon). And since I will be occupied with the house and probably won’t have a ton of time, I will definitely need to cut down on my blogging time.

I promise I’ll do my best to still get some posts up and do some bloghopping, but please know that for the next few weeks, posts may be sporadic and comment replies may take a while.

Talk to you all soon!

August 2018: The Month of Villains, Gumihos & Loving Yourself {Monthly Wrap Up}

August 2018 Wrap Up

Hi everybody, and welcome to my August wrap up!

August has been good – the weather has cooled off and the month has seemed to fly by faster because of it. I did manage to read a few good books, but highlights this month definitely happened on the music and movie front (Gee, what could it be? This is not predictable AT ALL…) Oh, and I got accepted for my first blog tour for one of my favorite authors so I’m pretty pleased overall <3

July 2018: The Month Of Fluffy Reads, The Fab Five & A Korean Odyssey {Monthly Wrap Up}

July 2018

Hi everybody, and welcome to my July wrap up!

Honesly, my July felt like it lasted foreeever. Why that is, I’m not sure, because I did feel like I did a lot of things, but time just didn’t seem to go by at all. Perhaps it has something to do with the weather, since we’ve been in a heatwave pretty much all month and the high temperatures are making everything feel slow. Though I didn’t read that much, I did get to read 2 new books and re-read 2 old favorites, so I’m happy about that. I also watched quite some TV and listened to some new music. So let’s just dive in: here’s what I did in July!

March 2018: The Month of Total Exhaustion (But Also Killer Sirens, Hackers, Jessica Jones AND Amazing Music) {Monthly Wrap Up}

March 2018

Hi everybody, and welcome to my March wrap up!

March was busy busy for me, which means there was not a lot of rime for fun, but I did get to read some amazing books, saw some great TV AND got to listen to a ton of amazing songs, so overall March wasn’t too bad. My blogging suffered a bit though, so for that I apologize and hope I’ll be back with more posts, comments and bloghopping next month! Until then, here’s what I did in March:

January 2018: The Month Of Incubi, Monsters, Grim Reapers and The End of the FXXXing World {Monthly Wrap Up}

January 2018

Hi guys, and welcome to my January wrap up!

My reading in January has been pretty average, quantitywise. I read 5 books, among which a comic, which is not a lot but also way better than some of last years’ slump months so I’m pretty happy with it. Qualitywise, some of those books have become all-time favorites which is definitely a bonus. Also, I watched some AMAZING tv this month and spent quite some time enjoying those worlds so overall, I’m pretty content about the stories I chose to start my year with.

Here’s what I’ve been up to in January!

October 2017: The Month I Cried A Whole Month Over One Book & Fell In Love With Jessica Jones {Monthly Wrap Up}

October 2017

Hi guys, and welcome to my October wrap up!

Sadly, my reading slump did not improve in October. But I still got to read 2 books, so it’s not all that bad. Hopefully November will be a bit better. I’m not participating in any readathons at the moment and I have promised myself to only read what I want to be reading. I’m putting aside any thoughts about my TBR  and will just focus on some Annette Marie books that I’m hoping will break my slump. But if I want to binge-watch Netflix instead of reading, I will be doing that. (I still need to watch the second season of Stranger Things!). Basically, I’m gonna try not putting any pressure on myself whatsoever and hope that’ll work.

But in the meantime, here’s what I did in October!

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!

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:

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!
