Monthly Wrap-Up: January 2021

I was so happy for January and then… well, it actually happened. It definitely felt like month 13 of 2020 for me. I’m a bit behind on my ARCs – for whatever reason (eyeroll) I haven’t been reading as much as I should – and I’ve spent most of the month feeling like I’ve been playing catch-up everywhere. It doesn’t…

Monthly Wrap-Up: December 2020

I don’t have words to express how happy I am that 2020 is over. It’s been a pretty good year, reading-wise, but having everyone home all the time has definitely cut into my blogging time. There were a lot of improvements I’d hoped to make – changing themes, adding in some more recommendation pages – that ended up falling to…

Monthly Wrap-up: November 2020

November has been a rollercoaster. It almost feels like Halloween was just yesterday! But honestly, I don’t think I should really be complaining about 2020 being one month closer to being over… It was quite a mix this month, with lots of romance (including two Beauty and the Beast retellings) plus some fantasy and sci-fi. I read 22 books this…

Monthly Wrap-up: October 2020

October has been a weird month. On the one hand, I read 28 books (lots of novellas in there, in case you wondering if I did anything else other than read)! On the other hand, the world is a dumpster fire. It was quite the busy month for ARCs, and while I read some Halloween-themed books, I didn’t get to…

Monthly Wrap-up: September 2020

What an absolute great month for books this has been! Between new releases and some older YA scifi, almost everything this month was at least a 4 star read. I read my first audiobook ever, and boy did I go for a doozy, the 30+ hour To Sleep in a Sea of Stars. It was a great experience, though, and…

Monthly Wrap-up: August 2020

I think this is the first summer I can remember that I’m actually glad it’s over with. The kids have been back in school – well, they’re distance learning – for a few weeks now, which has definitely been an adjustment. It does mean that I have a little more time for reading, thank goodness, because this month and next month…

Monthly Wrap-up: July 2020

Did I maybe forget that June was a month? Yes, yes, I did. In my defense, after seven months of having my husband and kids in the house with me ALL THE TIME I’m not really sure what month it is any more. What I do know, though, is that I’m forever grateful for the wonderful friends I’ve made in…

Monthly Wrap-up: May 2020

Is two months in a row a habit yet? I hope so! These wrap-ups are a bit time-consuming to put together, but it’s also a fun way to really get a sense of what I read in a month. I read so much – and review so much! – that sometimes I forget series that I wanted to circle back…

Monthly Wrap-up: April 2020

I haven’t done one of these wrap-ups since *cough* December 2018, but, well, with everything going on, I figured I might as well try resurrecting it. So, here’s what I read and reviewed in April, and here’s what I have coming up on deck for May! For the Goodreads Challenge, I’ve read 81 out of 220 books for the year.…

Monthly Wrap-up: December 2018

It’s that time of year!  I ended December out with a bang, finishing 5518 pages over 21 books.  My Goodreads challenge is also officially complete (and CRUSHED), having finished the year with 338 books read – 155% over my challenge goal of 218.  I’m still trying to figure out what to set as my goal this year, but I think…
