August 2021: Monthly Wrap-Up

Happy September! In my heart, fall starts today, but in reality, fall is still a few weeks away. That isn’t going to stop me from wearing long pants instead of shorts, though! I wasn’t as present here as I would have liked to be this month, but I had a really busy August! I was finally able to...

Mid-Year Check-In

Since it’s just over halfway through 2021 already (how?!), I thought I’d check-in and see how I’m doing in terms of reading challenges and bookish resolutions for the year. It’s a good way to keep myself accountable and make any necessary adjustments to hit these priorities! Reading Read 50 books. I’m already at 44, so I’m getting there!...

April 2021: Monthly Wrap-Up

I can’t believe it’s already May! Here in Ontario, the cherry blossom trees have already blossomed, and it’s slowly starting to look like spring (even if that does mean the occasional mid-week snowstorm). I kind of fell off of my regular posting rhythm in April — the 3rd wave has hit the city I live in hard, so...

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...
