Jingle Bells, Batman Smells, This Is My December Wrap Up!

Posted December 31, 2018 in Checking In // 0 Comments

Happy December, loves. This is it.  This is the end of the year, and fresh with good memories and bad ones – joy and regret.  This is the final push to reach our reading and writing and blogging goals.  I’ll be doing a proper 2018 wrap up tomorrow, but suffice it to say that things went well this year, at least as far as reading goes! I hope everyone has had a marvelous holiday season!  For myself, I am exhausted and excited for the year to be swinging to an end.  The holidays are always delightful, but tiring, don’t you […]

Turkey Coma: My November Wrap Up

Turkey Coma: My November Wrap Up

Posted November 26, 2018 in Checking In // 9 Comments

Here in New England, fall danced a little in October, teasing us with early smells of woodsmoke and pumpkin pie – then BAM!  We went straight into wintery cold.  As I’m typing this wrap up, it is a horrifying 0F outside, which is dastardly cold in my personal opinion.  Really, I will never be happy with the extremely in my neck of the woods. But some positives wit cold weather come holidays, time spent with friends and family, and of course, the ideal climate to curl up with a good book and a mug of cocoa. I went absolutely book […]

So Long to Apple Cider & Autumn Leaves: The October Wrap Up

So Long to Apple Cider & Autumn Leaves: The October Wrap Up

Posted October 29, 2018 in Checking In // 4 Comments

October is my favorite month of the year.  Between the spooky Halloween aesthetics, nutmeg and clove in the air, and beautiful leaves… it’s the most gorgeous month of the year in New England.  Add in the fact that it’s no longer 90-degrees with 100% humidity and that my birthday is in October, this is just generally a good month.  And while I’m sad to see it go, I’m excited to see what November will bring. Without further ado, I present: October. Remember last month when I only hauled two books?  Yeah, that was adorable.  The beginning of October typical means a […]

September Wrap Up

September Wrap Up

Well! September breezed through again – largely, I think, because I was on vacation this month! Regular readers and those who follow along on my Twitter or Instagram will know that my husband and I went down to Orlando to the Disney Parks last week! It was hot and exhausting but SO much fun. I’ll talk a little more about that later and in coming weeks. Not a big haul this month – City Of Ghosts was a preorder, and Dread Nation was half price on Amazon at the beginning of the month. I actually DO have more books coming, […]

August Wrap Up

Hello everyone!  How did August go for everyone?  Summer is winding away, and autumn is nearly here!  My  August was busy with friends in the beginning and work at the end.  I read some great books, ate some great food, and I am SO SO excited for September because I have a lot of fun stuff planned in September! As I’m writing this, I’ve got Black-ish on in background, eating some amazing bakery chocolate cream pie, hot tea… the porch door is wide open and my Lizzie cat is curled up right next to me.  Can’t ask for much more than that.
