March 2021: Monthly Wrap-Up

Happy April! I still can’t believe how quickly March flew by, but I’m so glad that it’s finally starting to warm up enough that I don’t need to wear a parka and boots whenever I leave the house. I spent a few evenings reading on my patio, but mostly spent my free time biking around the waterfront or...

February 2021: Monthly Wrap-Up

Happy March! The family-sized bags of Mini Eggs are now in stores (and filling my cupboards), which means that spring is almost here. Hopefully that means that the snow will disappear soon, too; I got my fill of skating and tobogganing in February, so I’m ready for it to stop being so cold and wet. READING PROGRESS I...

2021 Releases By Black Authors That I Can’t Wait To Read

February is Black History Month, and it’s so important for us to uplift and celebrate Black voices both this month and every day. As a reader, one of the most tangible ways to do this is by purchasing books written by Black authors, pre-ordering upcoming releases, and requesting that your library carry these titles. As part of my...

2021 Bookish Resolutions

Happy New Year, everyone! 2020 was a very challenging year, but I’m proud of myself for learning to find peace in being alone and for celebrating one year at my dream job. While I have no idea what 2021 holds, I know I’ll be finding comfort between the pages of books. I haven’t made too many personal resolutions...

December 2020: Monthly Wrap-Up

Happy New Year, everyone! It seems so surreal to be in 2021 already. There’s always a lot of pressure in January to make resolutions and become the best version of yourself that you can be. This year, instead of being intimidated by it, I’m really energized. I don’t know if I’ll stick to any of my resolutions, but...

December Book Haul

I haven’t posted a book haul in a while! Up until this summer, I had been living with roommates, so I had very limited space and had put myself on a book buying ban. Now that I’m in my own apartment and have my own bookshelf I have some space for displaying pretty books, so I just had...

November 2020: Monthly Wrap-Up

I can’t believe it’s already December! I spent last weekend putting up Christmas decorations with my mom and my 5-year-old nephew, so I’m definitely starting to get into the holiday spirit already. November was a mixed month for me. The sun setting earlier meant that I didn’t get to spend a lot of time outside, so I spent...

June 2020: Monthly Wrap-Up

Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians! I can’t believe how quickly June flew by – it seems like it only lasted for a few days. Since Toronto’s firework shows are all virtual this year, I’m hoping to spend my Canada Day reading in the park so I can get a head start on my July TBR. READING...

May 2020: Monthly Wrap-Up

I can’t believe it’s almost June! The weather is finally getting nicer and I’ve started carrying sunscreen everywhere — summer is almost here. Reading Progress I finally got out of my reading slump this month! I managed to finish one book, but I am in the middle of three others (mood reader problems). Somehow, despite this, I’m still...

Stay At Home Book Tag

I first saw this tag on White Rose Stories. Here in Toronto, we’ve just entered Phase One of reopening, but my workplace has already stated that we won’t be back in office until at least September. Since I’m going to be home all summer, this seemed like the perfect way to add some positivity to the whole “shelter...
