December 2018: The Month I Gave It My All To Reach My 2018 Reading Goal (& Failed Everything Else Woops) {Monthly Wrap Up}

December 2018

Hi everybody, and welcome to my December wrap up!

The last month of 2018 and pfew, it was quite a mixed month. On the one hand, it was once again proven that I am a very goal-driven person as I gave it my all to reach my Goodreads goal of 60 books read in 2018 and read the most I’ve ever read in one month. On the other hand, things got so busy that other than work, house renovations, reading and sleeping, I had very little time for anything else, which means I’ve been a TERRIBLE blogger. I’m so sorry for being MIA everybody! I only hope it’ll get better soon, but know that I haven’t forgetten you all and will definitely blog hop and comment on all your wonderful posts the moment I get the chance!

For now  though, here’s my December wrap up!

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Let’s be real for a minute: winter is not my favorite time of the year. In fact, I’m one of those people who wish they could just hole up inside of the house for the duration of winter. Or go somewhere sunnier. Anything to escape winter, which has everything I strongly dislike: freezing temperatures that leave me in a perpetual state of chill and feeling like I’ll never ever feel warm again (#dramaqueen), having to get up even earlier to scrape the ice of my car (ugh), too many layers of clothes that I have never been able to combine in a flattering way (need fashion advice on winter survival, stat), having to face my fears of driving in the snow (nightmare), constantly chapped lips and dry hands and endlessly dark days with no sunshine to boost my morale…

Nope, I’m not a fan of winter. Thankfully, there is one bright side to winter and that is the joy of being able to curl up on the sofa, snuggled under a nice warm blanket, cup of hot cocoa nearby and a great book in your hands. Plus, some of my most anticipated books ever are being released this winter, so in a way, I’m also weirdly looking forward to it…

Without further ado, I present to you the books that I’m hoping to be the beautiful highlights of the next few wintery months…

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about our bookish wishes for the Holiday season! Now, obviously the biggest joy about the Holidays is spending time with family and loved ones (well, it may not be for everybody, but I actually do love family gatherings. Mostly.) and soaking up the festive atmosphere. But I can’t deny that getting presents is also part of the fun. Bookish presents especially. I’m actually pretty easy to shop for since I make my wishlist months in advance *oops*.  So here are a few of the books that are on this years’ wishlist for Santa!

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about my favorite season: FALL. And what goes perfectly with fall? That’s right, reading! So naturally my fall TBR is huge and intimidating. But here’s the top ten books I’m planning to tackle first this fall!

(Sidenote: as this post goes live, I’ll ironically be enjoying my last taste of summer for this year while I’m on holiday in Tenerife (and hopefully getting a lot of reading in…). So please excuse me if I’m a bit late in replying to comments and bloghopping – I promise I’ll catch up soon!)
