New Books, New Hobbies, New Look: My January Wrap Up!

Posted February 3, 2020 in Checking In // 0 Comments

January is the month that lasts forever. Here in the northern hemisphere, January is the first full month of really, really cold.  Well, at least it is in Massachusetts.  I’m looking forward to the thaw – I’m tired of shivering and numb fingers.  Grateful to have a home and a place with heat, so I try to focus on life’s small blessings instead of the single digit temperatures. I am not a winter person, I swear. But there’s been a lot of things going on this month, so that can also be exciting! The Monthly Haul Um. So.  I tripped […]

December Chaos and Change and Delight – The December Wrap Up

December Chaos and Change and Delight – The December Wrap Up

Good morning and happy Monday!  I deeply hope that everyone celebrating their winter holidays over the last week or so have had a magnificent time of it, whether that’s Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, or what have you.  And if you haven’t been celebrating anything, well then, I just hope you’ve had a magnificent week! As I mentioned last month, this wrap up is going to be short and sweet without major highlights, as December has been absolutely bonkers. I’ll tell you all about it in the “Real Life” section below.  The end of the year is always busy, though, […]

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

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 […]

Did I Pass the 30 Before 30 Test?

Did I Pass the 30 Before 30 Test?

Posted October 7, 2019 in Real World // 3 Comments

So. Yesterday was my 30th birthday.  It’s something I’ve been a bit anxious about – 30 is that definitive where you’re no longer in your 20s and you’re supposed to be an adult and you know where your life is going… and that’s scary, you know?  I’ve been trying not to think about this transition between 29 and 30, especially because I’m not a birthday person. However, it’s always nice not to be alone, and one of my favorite bloggers, Tizzy @ Dusting the Soul, celebrated her 30th birthday in July.  Last year, she posted a 30 Before 30 list […]
