September & October 2022: Fall Monthly Wrap-Up

Brr, brr, brr! ❄️ I don’t know about where you live – but as I write this my weather app reads -20℃ and I am feeling it. Luckily I’ve got my fireplace roaring, a cozy blanket on top of me, and a kitty purring in my lap. πŸ₯° The perfect spot to get in some good reading!

That’s definitely one thing about the cold – it makes it so much more appealing to stay in and read (not that I need convincing).

Unfortunately, with the way things have been going for me right now, there hasn’t been a ton of time to spend reading (or reviewing πŸ™ˆ). At least not physical books! My work has been a little hectic, not gonna lie, but because of that – and the ridiculous weather – I’ve been spending a lot of time in my car lately…. which means I’ve had the opportunity to listen to a lot of audiobooks!

July & August 2022: Summer Monthly Wrap-Up

Hold onto your flannel blankets and grab those pumpkin-spiced lattes… Because cozy season is officially upon us! πŸ‚β˜•οΈπŸ§£πŸ§‘βœ¨

Are you a big fan of fall? I sure am. And I’m very glad it’s finally here! Despite working in schools, summertime is not my favorite time of the year (though I have to admit, I do enjoy the vacation 😎). That most coveted spot is reserved solely for autumn. The beautiful colors, perfect weather for sweaters, pumpkin-flavored everything – what’s a basic girl like me supposed to do? 😍

The fall does bring with it the start of a new school year… And now that I work full-time in the education sector, a whole lot of stress. My role has changed this year – and brought with it some new responsibilities – so I am acutely feeling the ramp-up of work right now. But (I hope) I’m up to the challenge! πŸ’ͺ (Check in with me in a few weeks to be certain… πŸ™ˆ)

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag 2022

Yes, it has been a hot minute since I last completed a book tag, and no, it is no longer technically the “middle” of the year anymore. But the urge to complete the mid-year book freak-out tag hit me in full force today, and I thought it would be a fun way to review all the reading I’ve managed to do so far in 2022.

So, without any further ado, let’s get to it! ✨

June 2022: Monthly Wrap-Up

Another day, another monthly wrap-up! I hope you all had a lovely June – and will have an even better July! β˜€οΈ

For me, June was the last month of the school year. I somehow managed to finish it off without too much stress – I genuinely don’t know how I did it! – and now it’s officially summer and I am PUMPED. 😎

My parents are visiting, which has been really nice since they live quite far away, and it’s been a number of years since the last time they stayed with me. It’s been fun doing lots of touristy things, sharing a few of my favourite parts of my city, and the life I’ve created here with them. ❀️

April & May 2022: Monthly Wrap-Up

How is it already June?!!?!

This year feels like it has been going by so fast!!! Since I work in education, the past couple of months have been a little hectic as we get everything in order for the end of the school year. June will likely be just as busy, but then glorious, glorious July and August will be at hand. 🌞

Between my two jobs, I’ve been spending A LOT of time working! It isn’t the worst thing, since I actually really love what I do. Nevertheless, I am definitely looking forward to things slowing down a bit in the summertime, and the ability to fit a bit more reading into my schedule! (Don’t remind me of the fact I have to take my professional examination sometime in there as well… πŸ™ˆ)
