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...

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...

October 2020: Monthly Wrap-Up

Happy November, friends! This October was a little strange since so many fall traditions had to be put on pause, but it was so nice to finally have cooler weather and brightly coloured leaves. I’m sad that spooky season is over, but I am pretty excited to start getting ready for Christmas. READING PROGRESS I’m excited to announce...

September 2020: Monthly Wrap-Up

My favourite month is finally here! Do I have any idea how we got to October so quickly? No. But between the falling leaves, vivid fall colours, and the lead-up to Halloween, I really can’t complain about the start of this new month. READING PROGRESS I’ve nearly reached my Goodreads goal for the year, and I’ve more than...

August 2020: Monthly Wrap-Up

I genuinely don’t know where the time (and the summer!) has gone. It’s slightly terrifying that it’s September already, but I’m ridiculously excited to put all of my sneakers away and start wearing Docs and cozy cardigans again. Reading Progress I was a little burned out in August, but I somehow managed to read 6 books. Three of...

July 2020: Monthly Wrap-Up

How is it already August? I feel like Canada Day was just yesterday, and now it’s nearly autumn. Reading Progress I’m somehow still ahead of my Goodreads reading challenge! I read 4 books this month, and two of these were backlist titles. I’m so glad that the library is open once again for curbside pickup — it’s so...

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...

January 2020: Monthly Wrap-Up

I honestly can’t wait for February. Sure, the temperatures are usually ridiculously cold (love those Canadian winters), but it’s also my birthday month. The prospect of turning 26 is slightly terrifying, but I can’t wait to celebrate! January was my first full month at my new job, and I’m so excited that I can finally say that I...

September 2018: Monthly Wrap-Up

I am┬áso excited for October: the leaves will have finally changed colour, it will definitely be ankle bootie weather and, of course, it’s Halloween month. After the difficult month that I had in August, I’m happy to say that September was a bit more gentle to me! I started a new job in Downtown Toronto, and the 2+...
