May 2019: The Month Of Exhaustion, TV That Didn’t Live Up To Expectations and Books That Exceeded Expectations {Monthly Wrap-Up}

May 2019

Hi everybody, and welcome to my (belated) May wrap up!

As you may have noticed, I’ve been a little less active on the blog lately and that’s because I’ve been a little overwhelmed with life-stuff (apologies for that, and more info below). But my reading, listening and watching-life have been pretty good anyway (thanks to the wonderful invention of audiobooks, so I can stand in traffic for hours each week and still get my reading done!)

Here’s what I’ve been up to this month:

My Favorite Binge-Worthy TV Shows {Top Ten Tuesday}

180904 Binge-Worthy TV Shows

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

With the new TV season starting, today is all about binge-worthy TV shows! (Because it doesn’t always have to be about books). Now, I used to be a huge tv show junkie. Meaning, I followed about 10-15 shows religiously and watched them every evening as soon as they came out. Lately, I’ve almost stopped that completely. Why?

One, because a lot of shows I used to love just seem to go on too long and I end up losing interest.
Two, because I started preferring binge-watching shows with shorter seasons over weekly watching shows with longer seasons.

To me, shorter seasons make for tighter storylines and are just much more fun to binge-watch. I watch them for a certain period, as long as it takes me to finish them, and then I move on to the next tv show. So these are a few of my latest binge-watch obsessions!

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:
