May Wrap-Up

Copy of February Wrap-Up

Hello my fellow bookworms! I can’t tell you how good it feels to be publishing another Wrap-Up post. Although they’re probably not the most interesting kind of posts to read, I find it very therapeutic to collect my thoughts on the last month, and see how much I was able to get done.

Most recently, my bookish attention has been focused on attempting to limit the number of books I buy. I’m guessing this is a problem for almost everyone reading this post, but it’s a really difficult one for me. Just check out some of my past wrap-ups to see what my hauls looked like! In order to try to lower my TBR and limit my spending, I came up with a book-buying ban – of a sort. In a nut shell, I only buy one book for every two books that I actually read. So far, it hasn’t been going too badly!

February Wrap-Up

February Wrap-Up Header

Once again, my monthly wrap-up post is like 1000 days late, but my life is just crazy, so I hope you guys get used to reading these posts about a week after the new month has started. I don’t know, maybe you’ll like it even better that way..? stop kidding yourself Mia

Also I apologize for how ugly the post header is, but I had zero time to attempt to make something nice, so please excuse my lack of design skills and patience.

Overall, February was pretty bad – for my reading/blogging/book stuff in general. Life-wise, it was meh. I’ll give you guys a little more detail on just why I’ve been so busy lately, but that’s later in the post. Mostly I’m gonna chalk up my complete failure to the fact that February is the shortest month. Two or three more days obviously would’ve changed everything, right?? Right. Glad we’re on the same page.

Top Ten Tuesday: Steamy Romances

HELLO THERE (1)

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY MY FRIENDS! I’m currently sending you all loads of hearts, flowers, and hugs (because you’re my real valentines)!

I hope you’ve had a great day today, even if you don’t celebrate. I’m currently stuffed from the insane amount of treats and candy I had.

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I decided to participate in my first Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Since I’ve never done one of these before, you’ll have to hang with me as I figure stuff out.

The prompt for this week was just anything romance related, so I decided to feature some of my favorite “steamy” romances (which I’ve kind of been thinking a lot about lately, for some random reason). Romance is different for everyone, but here’s what I think of when a romance is “steamy”:

January Wrap-Up

HELLO THERE

Hello friends, and welcome to my first ever monthly wrap-up! I’ve done these before over on my bookstagram, but never as a full blog post, and I’m super excited to finally have a place where I can reflect on everything that’s happened in the past month. I know every blogger does their wrap-up posts a little differently, but I decided to include both a list of all the books I read in January, and all the books that I hauled (take a guess at which list is longer). I would have liked to post this earlier, but (as you’ll see later in the post) my life has been quite insane lately.

Anticipated 2017 Releases

Hello bookworms! I’m about a week late in creating this post, thanks to school, but I really wanted to start off my year of blogging by mentioning some of the 2017 book releases that I’m looking forward to! A few of the books have already been released, but I since I haven’t actually read most of them yet, I’m gonna include them anyways.

After compiling a list of all the books on my to-buy list for the year, I realized that there were kiiiind of a lot. Like, “30-more-books-than-I-was-expecting” a lot. So I’ve decided to make this a two-part venture! This post (Part 1), is all the book releases in the first half of 2017 (January – June) that I’m excited for! Part 2 of the list (book releases from July-December) will be posted later in the year if I haven’t become totally broke and homeless yet. Also as the year goes on, more book releases for the fall/winter season will be announced, so I’m sure my list wouldn’t be fully complete if I posted it all now.

Without further ado, here is The List (or half of it, at least):
