June 2019: The Month I Binged All The Romance Books, Went On An Organizing Spree & Listened to 4 Songs On Repeat {Monthly Wrap Up}

June 2019

Hi everybody, and welcome to my June wrap up!

June was a great reading month, again thanks to audiobooks (what did I ever do without them?). For some reason, I seem to have read a whole lot of contemporary romance this month, but I have no regrets since it’s been great in getting my reading groove back. I also slowly but surely have been catching up and getting organised, so hopefully I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled programming soon enough. Oh, and music was pretty great this month too!

Basically, here’s what I’ve been up to this month:

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:

April 2019: The Month Of Demon Magic, An Adorable Manga & A New Favorite Drama {Monthly Wrap Up}

April 2019

Hi everybody, and welcome to my April wrap up!

Let me just say that it feels like April lasted FOREVER. It’s just that sooo much seemed to have happened. I started with some reading trouble and DNF’ed my first book of the year, Kitsune by Nicolette Andrews, because I just couldn’t get into the story. Thankfully, I read the cutest manga afterwards which seemed to get my reading groove back. I also read the latest novel by my favorite author (you-know-who 😉 ), listened to LOADS of new music and discovered my new favorite kdrama. Not too bad for one month, now is it?

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

March 2019: The Month Audiobooks Saved My Reading Life {Monthly Wrap Up}

March 2019

Hi everybody, and welcome to my March wrap up!

Well, is it just me or did March really just fly by? With us having moved end of February, March has been a month of getting settled again. It’s amazing how much stuff needs to be done – we’ve been doing things pretty much every evening and weekend but there’s still so much to do. I haven’t even gotten started on alerting several institutions of my address change *oops*

With everything going on, I feel like my reading is suffering a lot. I read one physical book this month, and it was spread over an entire month. I just can’t seem to focus and if I try ty sit down and relax with a book I fall asleep before my chapter is even finished. SO YAY AUDIOBOOKS FOR SAVING THE DAY! When I started listening to audiobooks, I was worried about getting an Audible subscription since I wasn’t sure I could get to one audiobook a month. This month I listed to THREE. Not good for my finances, but my reading life is pretty happy…

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

February 2019: The Month I Disappeared, But Now I’m Back (Almost) {Monthly Wrap Up}

February 2019

Hi everybody, and welcome to my February wrap up!

This isn’t going to be a huge wrap-up because – as you may have noticed – my blog activity kind of fizzled to zero this month. This is because I finally moved into our new home at the end of February and the weeks before and after that have been a whirlwind of activities to still get done, like painting, cleaning, packing, moving, unpacking, etc. I hope that things have now settled back into normal enough for me to get back into blogging actively, but to be honest, it’s still going to be a gradual process, so please be patient with me, my sporadic posting and terrible commenting etiquette just a liiittle while longer.

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

January 2019: The Month Of BUSY But Also Exciting Things {Monthly Wrap Up}

January 2019

Hi everybody, and welcome to my January wrap up!

January usually takes forever, but this year it has really flown by. A lot of that has to do with the fact that A) we are in the final stages of renovating and moving in February, so things have been HECTIC and B) I started my new job, which added another level of excitement and busy to my life this month. As a result, I’ve been slacking in the blogging department again and I’m afraid this’ll still last into February and maybe even March. I’ll be around as much as I can, but please be patient with me and know posts and comments may be very sporadic for a while longer.

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

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!

October 2018: The Month So Many Amazing New Releases Came Out So Of Course I Mostly Re-Read Old Favorites & Listened To One Song On Repeat {Monthly Wrap Up}

October 2018

Hi everybody, and welcome to my October wrap up!

AND ALSO, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Given my recent personal developments, I’ve still been a little M.I.A. this month, so again apologies to all my blogger friends! I’m hoping to catch up with all your blogs very, VERY soon. In the meantime, I’m hoping you’ll all have an amazing Halloween! Let me know how you’ll be spending today!

On the reading front not a whole lot of actual reading happened either, but there were some amazing releases this month and some of those I already started on, so that’s a definite plus. Musically, I continued my trend of listening to the same band over and over again and tv-wise… nothing at all happened.

So let’s just get into what I did do during the magical month of October!
