October and November Wrap Up 2017 | Only one month left!

It’s been very long since I sat down and wrote a post for my blog! Too long! But as you all know, life has a tendency to get in the way and ruin your plans. Fear not! No matter how busy December is going to be, I am ready to watch tons of Christmas Movies and type type type on my keyboard, while wrapped up in a cozy robe with a steaming cup of tea by my side.

Alright, alright.. let’s actually start talking about books! Continue reading “October and November Wrap Up 2017 | Only one month left!”

September Wrap Up | Not the greatest reading month!

The second half of 2017 has been very slow in terms of reading. I powered through many books in the beginning of the year and then it all started to go down hill. I have been reading but I don’t feel like I’ve been reading enough, if that makes sense.

First of all, let’s take a look at my September goals that I set up for myself in the beginning of the month: Continue reading “September Wrap Up | Not the greatest reading month!”

August Wrap Up | Reading demotivation & Fall expectations

There are certain months that mean something for me. For example, December is filled with holiday spirit; March resembles the approximation of warmer Spring days and September marks a new working / school year, like a twin brother of January.

And then there are months that don’t provide anything but crowded beaches and hot weather, especially when you live at a tourist destination. That what August was like. Many people, many events, many cars on the roads and some extremely hot days. Continue reading “August Wrap Up | Reading demotivation & Fall expectations”

July Wrap Up 2017 | Reading Slump & Booktube-a-Thon

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”

June Wrap Up | 2017  

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  “

May Wrap Up | 2017

Where do I even begin? May was busy and quickpassing, 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!

Classic-a-Month Reading Challenge | March and April Wrap Up

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.

April Wrap Up | 2017

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”
