November in Review

I can't believe that it is already December, November went by in such a blur. I had a decent reading month that was highlighted by the formation of the greatest SQUAD to ever be formed & updating my blog's graphics! Please excuse the mess while I update old posts to match my new aesthetic, and while it is meant to be my winter theme... I don't think I will be changing it again.

November was a month full of buddy reads and video games for me, but also a lot of sadness. My thoughts go out to everyone that was affected by the California wildfires. I am so thankful that both of the fires are fully contained and I hope that recovery for the region and those affected will be quick. Through the tragedy it has been truly inspiring to see the region come together and help one another. I was able to donate some needed supplies to the Camp Fire victims last weekend, and if you would like to help KQED has a list of charities that are accepting donations. Continue reading...

October in Review

As I write my wrap-up, Cabin in the Woods is playing in the background, my cat is running around, and I am eating Halloween candy. 🎃👻🧛 October was a month of ultimate highs and lows for me, but Blogoween and me proudly waving my Spooky Flag all month was certainly a highlight! I want to send a heartfelt thank you to Sam and Clo for being there for me during the hard times this month... your friendship means the world to me. 💖 I am slowly coming back to myself and hope to be a better blog hopper this November!

I also would like to take the time to thank you for 500 WordPress followers. I am truly humbled that you all are here reading my thoughts. I will be hosting a giveaway in the near future to celebrate, so stay tuned for that! Continue reading...

September in Review

FRIENDS, HALLOWEEN SEASON IS OFFICIALLY HERE TOMORROW! 🎃👻🧛 Yes, I have been celebrating for over a month but now people won't look at me funny for doing so! October is the best month because all the spooky movies and the weather is finally not boiling! Although the latter is yet to be seen as I am typing this from 97 degree heat, which is just rude, but according to weather forecasts I will be enjoying rainy weather in Vancouver when this post goes live!

But I digress. September was a great month for me both professionally and on the blog! I'm currently on vacation in Vancouver, Canada for a long weekend trip with my best friend to adventure and see Journey/Def Leppard. Definitely the highlight of my month. Since I am on vacation, I won't be blog hopping or replying to comments/tweets until Wednesday! Continue reading...

August in Review

I am SO READY FOR FALL my friends that I am not even concerned with how quickly last month flew by. If I am being completely honest with you, I am just happy I managed to wait until September 1st to bust out my Halloween decorations from the closet. I am still trying to recover from the gnarly cold I came down with on Wednesday, but rest assured that my apartment will be full of spooky vibes soon!

August was a really good (and balanced) reading month! Let's see how it went over in my neck of the bookish woods. Continue reading...

July in Review

How is it August already?!  I feel like I have stepped into a time machine and lost 20 days of my life - July just flew on by! Which is probably for the best because I feel like last month was really book-ended by highs and lows with a mental health downturn towards the end of the month.  The good news is that I have an understanding support system and am on the up-and-up, so I am excited for a new month & new beginnings!  So let's dive into my July in Review to see what books I read, an update on how the book ban is going, and more!
