In The Mood For Pen Pal Romance or Enemies-to-Lovers? — Dear Aaron and From Lukov With Love by Mariana Zapata {Mini Book Reviews}

Santos series by Mariana Zapata review

And the romance binge continues!

Though I’m usually a fantasy kind of girl, for the past few weeks I’ve been binging romance books like crazy. And in the midst of this romance binge, I discovered a new-to-me author called Mariana Zapata. An author who’s apparently known for her slow-burn romances. HELLO, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE? It only got better when I discovered one of her books featured a pen pal romance and another an enemies-to-lovers trope. I can’t help it, I am drawn to those tropes like crazy so obviously I immediately purchased them, listened to both of them on audiobook and had some thoughts, so please check out my mini reviews below!

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:
