November 2017 Month In Review

Books I Read This Month: Honestly I was SHOCKED when I was looking back to see how many books I read in November for this post!! I took the week of Thanksgiving off which I think helped boost my numbers, and I also read a lot of ebooks (4 of the 8 were on my Kindle) which always helps me to read faster!

October 2017 Month In Review

Books I Read This Month: Ok so I know I’ve been TERRIBLE at monthly recaps the past year or so, but really I’ve been so exhausted with life in general and my life isn’t terribly exciting- I literally spend like 90% of my time working and the rest reading or watching YouTube makeup tutorials so you guys aren’t missing out on much, I swear! Books I Reviewed This Month: There’s Someone Inside Your House (4 Stars) The Wrath and the Dawn (3 Stars) The Becoming of Noah Shaw (5 Stars) From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess (5 Stars) […]

June 2017 | Month in Review

The first “summer” month is over (can you believe that?!) and it seems like June passed by in the blink of an eye! Honestly I can barely remember what happened at the beginning of June (aside from starting my new role at work and dealing with a major heat wave here on the West Coast) but I ended the month with a lot of travel and reading surprisingly more books than I realized. So in news that will probably surprise no one Max and I went down to SoCal for a quick Disneyland trip to celebrate my promotion at work. […]

May 2017 | Month in Review

  So it’s been a few months since I did a month in review post (since February, actually) however things have been such a whirlwind that it never really felt like the right time to sit down and recap my monthly happenings. With May signaling the end of the spring months and the start of summer, I decided it was the perfect time to jump back on the month in review bandwagon- and boy was this spring a RIDE. May pretty much immediately started with Max and I driving back from YallWest and then the following day my MOST ANTICIPATED […]

February 2017 | Month in Review

February lived up to its status of being the shortest year out of the month, because I basically blinked and it was GONE. February signals the beginning of spring busy season for me at work, which lasts until the beginning of April, so I’ve been working a TON while still trying to keep up with all of the reading and blogging I’ve planned to do! Though I was super busy in February, I did so much post planning at the beginning of the year that I felt I was able to keep up with the blog and with reading pretty […]

January 2017 | Month in Review

Hello, 2017! We’re officially more than one month in now, and it’s been quite the ride so far. Though there’s a lot of ~things~ happening in the world right now, January proved itself to be a really exciting and wonderful month for me, full of incredible experiences and new resolutions (I am ALL ABOUT making New Year’s resolutions. I use my Erin Condren planner to break my resolutions into multiple categories and track them throughout the year!) I kicked off 2017 by heading to Aulani, Disney’s resort in Hawaii, for my birthday! I visited two years ago for my college […]

Christmas Recap & December 2016 Month in Review

There’s no denying that December recaps are my favorite because I get to focus on Christmas and all of it’s colorful, sparkly, and joyful glory. December means time off from work, cold weather, and more excuses to stay inside under my pile of blankets and read. This year was my second Christmas living with Max, and we had a great (if exhausting) holiday, running all around the state seeing our friends and family. Our Christmas weekend started out pretty hectic. We spent Christmas eve-eve together (I had the day off work so I finished my wrapping and shopping and watched […]

October 2016 Month in Review

Books I Read This Month: Wow, I have to say I read a LOT of books this month, considering October is the busiest month of the year for me at work! I think I was using reading as a way to relax quite a bit. I’d come home from work, exercise, read, sleep, repeat. I’ve found myself reading quite a few contemporaries lately, so I’m hoping to squeeze in more thrillers before the end of the year!

Month in Review: September 2016

Hello friends! Monthly recap posts are ones that I’ve only done sporadically throughout the past year, as I feel like some months I don’t have a whole ton to say. However, a lot of fun/exciting things have been happening so I’m excited to get back on the bandwagon with this feature!
