May Wrap Up | 2017

monthly-wrap-up-book-haul-1

How was everyone’s May? May is actually one of the busiest months for me. I mean, there’s mothers day, my brother’s wedding anniversary, my dad’s birthday, my parents wedding anniversary, and then my sisters birthday. All in that order, too.

I officially marked A Monster Calls (by Patrick Ness) as a Did Not Finish (DNF). I’ve just lost all interest in the book. Which is slightly upsetting, but I can’t help that I’ve lost interest.

unnamed-26The books I had on my TBR this month were: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver; since I really want to read the book and eventually watch the movie with my mom. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard; I really need to finish re-reading this so I can put the book out of my mind! Cryer’s Cross by Lisa McMann; I’ve had the book for a while, and every time I look at my shelf my eyes go to Cryer’s Cross. Evermore by Alyson Noël; I’ve been wanting to re-read Evermore for a few years now, so why not!

I’m leaving May, and entering June reading Before I Fall, as well as Evermore. Let’s see what I read this May! Continue reading

March Book Haul & Wrap Up | 2017

monthly-wrap-up-book-haul-1

Hello reader(s)! I hope March went well for you all. If not, then I’m so sorry. Hopefully April brings better things. We had a thunderstorm this month, the first of the season, I’m sure! The thunder and lightning was a sight to behold. Even though I was in my room with the lights on. Thankfully the power didn’t go out! The storm rushed through my town and at one point was over my house. It’s such a strange sensation to feel the deep rumble of a thunder storm run through the bones of your house.

unnamed-10My TBR for this month consisted of only one book! That book was A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. It was also my groups book of the month on Goodreads. Which was why I only had one book on my TBR this month. I figured, with only one book on my TBR, surely I could sit down and just read it. Continue reading

Book Un-Haul

sisterlybookunhaulToday’s post is as you figure: I’m getting ride of some books. Most of the books that I’m getting rid of are the books that my sister had the attitude of: “Here. Go through these and get rid of ones you don’t want. I don’t want them anymore.

So that’s what I’m doing! The books are going to go from being the ones my sister doesn’t want, to the ones I myself am getting rid of.  Continue reading

February Wrap Up

monthly-wrap-up-book-haul-1

Hello friends! Here’s my February Wrap-Up.

It has snowed off and on all of February; which is short of a miracle, I believe. I don’t think it’s snowed in February here in my part of Canada since 2007, maybe? Even the news has said that it’s rare for Vancouver to get this much snow in our Winter season. I think we’ve gotten around 68cm(?) of snow. Usually this happens only every ten years. Anyway, lets get on to reviewing what I’ve done and read this past month, shall we?

unnamed-29My February TBR consisted of four books: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Illustrated Edition, illustrated by Jim Kay, Hereafter by Tara Hudson, Inhuman by Kat Falls, and Mistwood by Leah Cypress. I unfortunately only got around to reading one of the four books this month (Hereafter). Continue reading

September Book Haul + Wrap Up | 2016

September is already over?! That is so crazy. That means Autumn is a third done already!! I don’t want my favourite season to end! … If I could live in a world where the regions are categorized by the seasons, I would live on the brink of Autumn and Winter. Honestly. I’d totally do that. I might miss Spring, and even the warmth of Summer, but it’d be worth it. Anyway!

Here are the books I’ve gotten this month! Continue reading

August ’16 Wrap Up & Book Haul

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all doing okay, and that August treated you well? Today’s post, as you can tell, is my August Wrap Up of 2016. It’s crazy how fast time has moved! We’re already 8/12ths into the year! — Honestly though, I’m so excited for Autumn/Fall to be here. I love when the leaves change colour, and the cozy sweaters, and the boots I get to wear. Autumn makes me happy! Anyway, onto the Wrap Up!

This past month reading-wise has been great for me. I’ve somehow managed to read 12 books!! That’s honestly so crazy. Continue reading
