November Wrap-Up

Another month came and went! November wasn’t the best month of the year, was it? A certain election shook the world. My reading and blogging slump was real. Despite not working full-time anymore, I couldn’t achieve much because I couldn’t concentrate on anything. However, it wasn’t all bad. I celebrated my birthday! Well… I was actually sick on my birthday and had to spend it in bed, but I celebrated a bit anyway. And then the Gilmore Girls revival came, which I was so excited about, but it sort of disappointed me. Overall, November kinda sucked, but that’s okay! Ups and downs, right? December holds promise ❄☃🌲

October & Halloween Readathon Wrap-Up

October came and went so fast! I joined Lauren’s 👻 Halloween Readathon 🎃, so I’ll be including my wrap-up for that in here as well. I was in a bit of a blogging slump because I had so much else to do, so sitting down to write a discussion post became impossible. I couldn’t even think of topics. Hopefully, now that I’m not working full-time, November will go better in that front! Also, I’m hoping to focus on ARCs and requested reviews this month, because I’ve neglected them until now (sorry!). But for the moment, let’s check how October went 😊

September Wrap-Up

September was a crazy month. It had good things and bad things, but let’s not get into them. I fell into a bit of a reading and blogging slump and wasn’t able to sit down and write all the reviews I planned to. But, on the other hand, I reached 300 followers, which I’m really thankful for! 🙂 Let’s see how I really read and blogged this month:

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’ll NEVER read

Another week, another Top Ten Tuesday, a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This time I’m talking about books that I’ll NEVER read. These are some that I started, never finished and won’t ever be motivated to pick up again, others are extremely hyped ones that don’t appeal to me and the rest are others I have some issues with. As a disclaimer I have to say that I’m in no way shaming or judging anyone who enjoyed these books, not at all. My choices are personal and according to my tastes and preferences. If you liked any of the following books, please share your experience with them in the comments and let the conversation begin!!

July Wrap-Up

July was a busy busy month and I couldn’t read as much as I wanted because it was my first month on a full time job. Still, I read two amazing books and two not-so-great ones and I’m happy with that. As for the blog… well, I neglected my Genre Exploration series because I’m a little stuck with the next post I’m planning. But let’s not mind that, let’s see my July 2016 monthly wrap-up!

June Wrap-Up

This is my first ever wrap-up post! Last month I wasn’t able to do it because… well, because I didn’t realize the month had ended. It flew by. This time I was ready! June was a very busy month, but good nonetheless. I enjoyed my reads and I think I finally got the hang of this blogging thing, even though I might fail sometimes. But let’s not waste any more time, let’s go straight to it. Here’s my June 2016 monthly wrap-up:

Genre Exploration: Tips to start reading poetry

Another day, another installment of my Genre Exploration series, where I discuss genres I don’t normally pick up, define them, talk about their classics and new releases, recommend books and authors, and much more.

If you want to read poetry but don’t know where to start, this is for you! It is also helpful for anyone who wants to read more poetry or maybe look at it from a different perspective. A few weeks back I discussed in this post what poetry was and some common misconceptions people have about it, so today I wanted to share with you some tips to help you start exploring poetry in the less intimidating way possible. These have worked for me and I hope they work for you too. Let’s check them out!

Favorite BookTubers

Every time I feel like I need a little reading inspiration, I’m sure to check some YouTube videos of lovely people talking about books. Nothing makes me want to read more than people showing their TBR piles, seeing their book hauls, or listening to their thoughts on their latest reads. Here I have a few BookTubers with genres and opinions similar to mine that I want to share with you. Check them out: Continue reading “Favorite BookTubers”
