October 2019 Wrap-Up

IMG_8624

Hello friends! Welcome to another one of my monthly wrap-ups.

I want to include some cute and witty banter, but honestly, I’ve got nothingšŸ˜‚. October, as per usual, was a particularly busy month for me, as it usually is every single year. Since I live in Canada, we had our Thanksgiving, friends giving, autumn turn over supper, in October! Then there were a few birthdays (including mine), and then it was Halloween.

So really, this past October was over and done before it had even begun.

What was your October like?Ā

41150487._SY475_What happens when America’s First Son falls in love with the Prince of Wales?

When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, geniusā€”his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There’s only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse.

Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations and begs the question: Can love save the world after all? Where do we find the courage, and the power, to be the people we are meant to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through?

Casey McQuiston’s Red, White & Royal Blue proves: true love isn’t always diplomatic.

Here’s the thing: I didn’t plan on reading Red, White & Royal Blue, but I did. And I didn’t plan on reviewing Red, White & Royal Blue, either. But I have. I was happy to not have to review another book. Less work for me! #lazy #dontforgettotakebreaks

But here I am, with an informal book review. This “book review” will only have my lasting impressions on the book since I wrote little to no notes.

Enjoy! Continue reading

September 2019 Wrap-Up

Hello readers!

Today is the day where I post my September 2019 Wrap-Up. Let’s see what I did in the blogging world this past September, hey?

September felt like itĀ flew by. But then again, September and onward tends to move a little more quickly than anticipated. Also, my province won’t be participating in the time-fall-back-thing, and I amĀ pissed.

How was your September?

Enjoy!

August 2019 Wrap Up

IMG_8624

Hello lovelies!

Today I have my August 2019 Wrap Up. I can’t believe how fast the month of August went by. I don’t know about you, but to me, August seems to be one of the faster months of the year. During August I had a lot going on personally, and blog-wise as well.

In August I had family from out of town visit. I also started a big Project that I hope to announce sometime soon (perhaps in the next few weeks) as well.

Blog wise, I had a lot going on too. An overload of book reviews, whichĀ might be dwindling down within the rest of the year (because of the Big Project). I also had time to post non-book-review-y things this month as well.

How was your August 2019?Ā 

Enjoy! Continue reading
