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...

January 2021: Monthly Wrap-Up

Did it take me 3 tries to write the correct year in this post title? Maybe. January felt like it was both exceptionally long and also like it only lasted a week. I’m glad that it’s over and that my birthday month is finally here, even if I’m only planning to bake myself cupcakes and FaceTime with my...

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...
