And thus concludes my July

Hi bookish friends, I had a fun bookish July. I read some really fantastic novels and purchased way too many new ones! I've also hit the 200 followers mark on my blog, had a Top Ten Tuesday post that garnered so much discussion and feedback that I am stoked to participate in TTTs again more… Continue reading And thus concludes my July

And thus concludes my June

Hi bookish friends, June was a pretty good reading month actually. I feel like I am slowly getting back to a pace that I had last year. My closest circle of girlfriends from my college times recently started our own covid-19 book club toward the very end of May and we have been flying through… Continue reading And thus concludes my June

And thus concludes my spring (March, April, and May)

Hi bookish friends, I am playing catch-up big time on my monthly updates and so now you get a 3-for-1 deal. March, April, and May were pretty productive in terms of reviewing ARCs (6) and getting to read from my own shelf (9). I listened to 6 memoirs and read 11 suspense-horror-thriller novels, 12 books… Continue reading And thus concludes my spring (March, April, and May)

And thus concludes my February

Hi bookish friends, I am getting into the grove of mindful reading and I am super happy with this. I read several poetry anthologies, stepped outside my comfort zone with some non-fiction, and generally just chose books that totally spoke to me at that moment (which made me completely abandon my to-read list for this… Continue reading And thus concludes my February

And thus concludes my January

Hi lovelies, 2020!!!!! This is crazy! I love a good new beginning and every year I look forward to January. One of my goals this year is to not care about book number but page number AND mindful reading instead; and you'll see I have slowed down considerably. January kind of flew by ... .… Continue reading And thus concludes my January

And thus concludes my December AND this decade

Hi lovelies, Oh gosh, this is so very late!!!! Nevertheless, I had a really great December. I enjoy the holiday season immensely and was able to devote quite some time to reading. My Goodreads reading group did an end-of-decade cramathon and that really spurred me on to finish all (but one) reading goal for 2019.… Continue reading And thus concludes my December AND this decade

And thus concludes my November

Hi lovelies, I guess it's time for my monthly wrap-up. November was a decent month in light of my recent reading slump. I had two ARCs of which I only read one .... whomp, whomp, whoomp. I particularly hate being late on ARC reviews. Genre-wise I was all over the place ranging from thriller to… Continue reading And thus concludes my November

And thus concludes my June through October

Hi there, I've been quite inactive with my monthly summary posts and instead of catching up, I decided to just have one "massive" review. Well, it's not going to be truly massive since I actually read less than I usually do. I had quite a lot of personal things going on May through August but… Continue reading And thus concludes my June through October

And thus concludes my May

May was a tough month for me. I had another reading slump that was challenging me. My dog also got really sick, needed emergency surgery, and still requires a lot of aftercare. He has a condition called laryngeal paralysis and while it was fixed with a simple surgery, he had to relearn how to eat… Continue reading And thus concludes my May

And thus concludes my April

April was a really good reading month. Not as proliferate as January, but I made it through {x} books. Both, Dewey's readathon and Spring into Horror really kept me motivated and, of course, helped advance my total book count. I didn't finish all the books I had set my eyes on in my monthly goal… Continue reading And thus concludes my April
