October Wrap-Up & GIVEAWAY WINNER

I feel like I say this with every wrap-up, but honestly where did the month go? Where has the year gone?! I cannot believe that we are only sixty days away from ringing in 2019!

October was a whirlwind month for me. Blogoween kicked off for the first time and was a HUGE success (all thanks to you guys), I hosted my very first giveaway (which the winner will be announced below!), and I have made so many new friends here in the book blogging world! Honestly, October was a great month filled to the brim with different events and different emotions. I can’t even believe this but hot damn I read a crap ton too. How I found the time to host, co-organize, work, read, and you know–breathe, I will never know! But flipping flapjacks does it feel good.

Before we get into what exactly I read, I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone that participated and hosted Blogoween. You guys are simply amazing. None of this would have happened if it wasn’t for your enthusiasm and participation! Thank you to everyone who posted for it throughout blogoween, and to all the hosts for giving us a piece of your week/blog throughout the month of October and promoting the shiznits out of this event! YOU ARE THE REAL MVP!!!

-MUSIC WRAP-UP-

This month has been a nostalgic month in the music department as I have found myself venturing back into a country mood. Maybe because it’s fall and cool weather has decided to sporadically visit the city I live in that has got me into my southern roots and what not. I don’t really know, but man oh man have I been loving these songs like crazy this month:

  • Shallow – Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper

BLOGOWEEN DAY 3: September Wrap-Up & Blogoween TBR

Blogoween Day3 (1).png

Ah, another day back in the Blogoween sphere and honestly I am having a blast reading everyone’s posts! And to think it is the only third day of Blogoween! You guys are amazing and I am thriving on your excitement and enthusiasm for this event! YOU ARE AMAZING!

For today’s Blogoween’s post I decided to deviate from the host’s prompts and go rogue. I know forever me staying on brand. But I thought it would be fun to show you guys what I am planning on reading this month, as well as wrap up everything that I devoured last month!

August Wrap Up + BLOGOWEEN

wrapup3.png

How is this year almost over?!

August is officially done and over with and so much has happened these past thirty days that I can’t even wrap my head around it. I didn’t read as much as I usually do, but wow-oh-wow was August jam-packed with adulting changes. I started a new job, got a car (still need a license…slowly but surely we are getting there people), my dog (Mr. Chips) finally has overcome his fear of driving in the car at night and now loves it, and I made some

Mr. Chips when I told him we were going to the bookstore.

amazing new friends here in this blogging world!

But can I just say HOW FREAKING PUMPED I AM FOR FALL AND WINTER!? Y’all my favorite time of year is only thirty days away! My happy-go-lucky ass is breaking out all the cardigans, combat boots, candles, and fuzzy blankets I own–AND I AM HERE FOR IT. Not to mention this year is going to be even greater since I’ll be hosting/participating in BLOGOWEEN AND BLOGMAS with a bunch of my friends here in the bookblogging world! But I’ll talk more about that later on in the post. Continue reading “August Wrap Up + BLOGOWEEN”

May Wrap Up

Hello world and Hello June!

I hope everyone has had a great reading month these past thirty-one days; I know I have, which is really shocking for me, because I could have sworn I barely read anything in the month of May, but according to Goodreads I have read a total of 13 books this month. Not to mention I have seen some great finales and music has been on fire each week this month. Continue reading “May Wrap Up”

April Wrap Up

wrapup

Why hello and welcome to May!!

I feel like every wrap up I do, I always start with how I can’t believe we are entering a new month, but seriously guys–WHERE DID APRIL GO? I feel like I just did my March Wrap Up. But even though April was super fast, it was also packed with some amazing stuff. Not only did I get one of my most anticipated releases, but I had a solid reading month that I enjoyed, and I watched some amazing shows/movies. Continue reading “April Wrap Up”

February Wrap Up

wrapup

I honestly feel like February flew by so fast! It feels like Single Awareness Day was two days ago and not 2 weeks ago. But nevertheless, February was jammed packed with a lot of change and trying new things, which for me is daunting so the fact that I read anything at all deserves the highest of fives. tenor.gif

This month I read a total of six (6) books, and I was in a HUGE romance/new adult mood  so basically that is all I read. #noshame. But like I said Feb was full of new things and a lot of socializing so I am really proud of how much I read….. Continue reading “February Wrap Up”
