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. […]
Tag: It’s Monday What Are You Reading?
I know I usually say “wow that month went by so fast”, but seriously, y’all, July? July was a long long month. I struggled to balance reading with writing with blogging with life with health stuff and sunshine and just everything and I am ready for autumn. This is how you know I’m a New Englander – I’m ready for fall now. Yes? Yes. July wasn’t so bad – just busy! I don’t like to be busy – I love me some weekends to sit at home and relish in doing nothing. It’s the best. August is gonna be busy too, […]
June is already gone, and what an unexpected month it has been. For me, June has been a month that has required patience – at work and at home, and with my reading. As I write this, though, my house is peacefully quiet and it smells like barbecue pulled pork, so it important to find all the little things are cling to them lovingly. All in all, June has been a good month. It went by so fast, but doesn’t it seem like they all do, by the time we hit the wrap up? Y’all know how I keep […]
My loves, I am exhausted. February and March are always difficult months for me, with many thanks to the glorious New England weather. I can only do so much with grey skies and snowstorms, you know? This month’s wrap up is going to be brief – mostly just to say hi and let you know what’s been going on in my library these days and see how you all are doing! My haul was pretty low key this month, which is fine! I didn’t go out and buy any of these except Children of Blood and Bone – all pre-orders, ARCs […]
February is always the fastest month of the year. Maybe it’s because there’s so much going on, maybe it’s because it’s technically the shortest month… I don’t know! But here we are again at the end of it! For all you beautiful people reading this, I hope you all had an amazing Valentine’s Day, Lunar New Year, President’s Day – the whole shebang. And all the holidays I missed. February is ripe with holidays! My bookishness wasn’t as ambitious this month as January, but I loved all the books I got through. It was just slow going. February hits me hard as […]
2018 is off to a roaring start, n’est pas, mes chers? I’ve not been subtle about how much 2017 stunk for me, so I’m absolutely thrilled with the way January has unwound so far. I hope everyone else has had a good start, too! I ended up with quite a good haul this month – after a slow December on NetGalley, I ended up being granted 5 books. I timed my requests so that there’s nothing immediate, so reading them shouldn’t be a challenge (The Phantom Tree releases in August!). I believe there’s a lot of little ones in this set… Blood Will […]
