The Weather Turns Cold, But It’s Fine I’m In the Caribbean – The November Wrap Up

The Weather Turns Cold, But It’s Fine I’m In the Caribbean – The November Wrap Up

Posted November 25, 2019 in Checking In // 4 Comments

Hi loves! November and December’s wrap-ups will be short and sweet, as I haven’t been supremely involved in the community lately, and what’s worse, I haven’t been reading as much as I wish I could.  This month, I’m just going to do a quick review on the books themselves and a smidge of life. 🙂 Thanks for always being so cool about the flightiness of my wrap ups! <3 Also, just a reminder from Friday that I’m Bahama-bound so I want to talk about this month’s books!  But I can’t reply to comments under next week. </3 Preorders rolling in this […]

Not Much Reading, or Writing, Oops! – The October Wrap Up

Not Much Reading, or Writing, Oops! – The October Wrap Up

This will be short and sweet loves as I’m frantically writing this about twelve hours before it goes live.  Busy, busy lately! Another small book-buying month!  These are all pre-orders and book box items. 🙂 And, guys?  The Girl the Sea Gave Back was a hard-won battle.  I’ve been having more and more issues with Book Depository… to the point where I don’t think I’m going to buy from them anymore once all my pre-orders come through.  They were fine for a while, but this year I’ve had 2 books that were sent and then lost by USPS apparently, for […]

House-Hunting, ARC Reviews, & a SMALL HAUL WHO AM I EVEN? – The September Wrap Up

Posted September 30, 2019 in Checking In // 4 Comments

Good morning everyone!  September is swinging to a close and here in Massachusetts… we are fully immersed in autumn.  The leaves are beginning to go a little red-orange around the edges and the mornings have been crisp and cool.  When I leave for work in the mornings, I can smell woodsmoke and for me?  That’s the truest sign that fall have arrived. This is my favorite season – I thrive in fall.  I feel more alive September – November than I do the rest of the year and I try to live these months to my fullest… which means getting out […]

In Which I Actually Work on my WIP & Read Shakespeare Retellings: The August Wrap Up!

In Which I Actually Work on my WIP & Read Shakespeare Retellings: The August Wrap Up!

Posted August 26, 2019 in Checking In // 5 Comments

Hello beautiful people and welcome to the August wrap up! Heyyy remember when I said last month that my mental health was fairly poor, so I wanted to take a step back and try and re-center myself, etc. etc.?  Well, that didn’t happen until about halfway through August once I tore myself out of the temptation of readathons and had a whole weekend without books. It was pretty difficult for me, but I think it was needed.  I’d been reading so much that my escape was becoming a chore and I was going into overload.  You may not notice it […]

In Which It’s Too Hot, I Do Two Readathons, & I Bombard You With Reviews:  The July Wrap Up!

In Which It’s Too Hot, I Do Two Readathons, & I Bombard You With Reviews: The July Wrap Up!

Posted August 5, 2019 in Checking In // 2 Comments

Good morning everyone! I’ll be completely honest, July didn’t go quite the way I was expecting in the book department!  That’s not a bad thing, but it was different!  I was planning to join with the Camp NaNoWriMo spirit and do a lot of writing and learning about writing, and instead I ended up participating in two readathons! It’s been fun but stressful.  It’s also been hot here in New England!  The heat waves have been coming by brutally, so it’s be a good time to read. And the reading?  The reading was good this month.  I actually delayed this wrap […]
