Is it just me or each month flies by quicker and quicker? I am here again to look back at the passing month and gather my thoughts before jumping into August.
July was a month of ups and downs. After my great reading in May and June, I expected July to be the same, especially because my anticipated books finally arrived and I was ready to dive in! But… it turned out I was very very wrong.
Let’s start from the beginning! Continue reading “July Wrap Up 2017 | Reading Slump & Booktube-a-Thon”
Don’t you love it when the first day of the month falls on the weekend? Because I do! Perfect timing to wrap up the previous month and set up reading and non-reading goals for the next month, and just taking some time off to recharge!
June was one of the best reading and blogging month this year, hopefully it treated you well too! If you can recall, for my June TBR I decided not to make an actual To-Be-Read pile but small goals that would keep me motivated and it worked wonders! Continue reading “June Wrap Up | 2017 “
Where do I even begin? May was busy and quick–passing, yet it felt way longer than previous months. Maybe because I was able to read, post, work and do tons of other things. If only I had so much energy every month of the year!

The year started strong with «Pride and Prejudice» by Jane Austen and then February came along with another case of reading slump. Most likely due to me trying to finish «The Book Thief» by Markus Zusak that I started in late August and just not enjoying it at all. It was a great story, but the writing or the Portuguese translation just didn’t get me into the world created by the author, but more about that below.

The reading slump is officially over (as well as my Instagram slump!). I am so happy to be reading at my usual speed again and taking beautiful pictures of everything and anything bookish!
There is a very special person who always believes in me, no matter what I do or what phase I go through. Thank you very much for always being there for me! Continue reading “April Wrap Up | 2017”
Days are getting longer and brighter, there are so much more you can squeeze into 24 hours. That must be one of the main reasons why I love Spring so much. Spring usually came with greenness and flowers, rustling of new leaves and tweets, but since I moved to Portugal there is no distinctive season transition as I was used to before and I grew to love the daylight savings (the only change, besides temperature, that announces a new season).
Comparing to February, March was a “catching up” and “try to stay away from reading slump” month. I was able to catch up with my Classic a Month Reading Challenge, read some ARCs due in April and May, and just to enjoy my reading time overall. Continue reading “March Wrap Up | 2017”
I am about to announce the most disastrous reading progress I’ve ever made! Are you ready?? In the month of February I read a total of three THREE books! That’s the least amount of books I’ve read in many many months and I am utterly ashamed of my poor effort.
Were they good books? Were they memorable? Did the amazing plots compensate for the poor amount? We shall find out! Continue reading “February Wrap Up | 2017”
