May 2018 Month in Review

Hello! I am back with a monthly recap for the first time since February and I’m so excited to share with you that I read TEN books in the month of May. I think this must be a personal record for me for most books read in a month, or close to it at least! Personally, this month was super busy and exciting, starting with YALLWEST the first weekend, followed by out of town visitors, my little brother’s college graduation, and ending with the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Perhaps the BEST part of the month was finally trying Salt & […]

Christmas Recap & December 2017 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 third Christmas living with Max, and we actually had a pretty quite yet restful holiday- exactly what we needed after a super busy year! Max unfortunately had a pretty bad cold Christmas weekend, so we spent most of it inside reading and watching tv (and binge watching Season 2 of […]

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!

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! Books I Reviewed This Month: One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid (4 Stars) Gemina (Illuminae Files #2) by Jay Kristoff and Amie […]
