Monthly Wrap-Up: May 2015

May 2015: in which I got a new job! Big, big month for me! I found a job for at least the next six months at a really fun and quintessentially Dutch company! I got the call on a Friday and started the next Tuesday, so it’s been a bit of a whirlwind. It’s also, however, been an absolutely excellent reading month. Seriously, SO MANY good books. I dearly hope you’ll be checking my reviews, because you need these books in your life.

Monthly Wrap-Up: April 2015

April 2015: in which I binged a loooot of TV Month 1 of unemployment is complete! Hopefully it won’t be much longer. Unemployed life is as follows: stress eating, reward eating, and clinging to sitcoms to try to cheer up. As such, I was a bit demotivated about reading and blogging, and I’m swamped by review copies. No 5 orange reads this month. No bueno.

Monthly Wrap-Up: March 2015

March 2015: in which I read A LOT Phew. March was a hefty month – which I’ll get to later – but more than anything, I was caught by the reading bug this month. All I wanted to do was read read read read. So I did. A LOT. I’m in a blogging slump but NOT a reading slump, so that’s something.

Monthly Wrap-Up: January 2015

January 2015: In Which I MOVED Damn, it’s already February! As you may have noticed, the blog was pretty quiet in January, because I MOVED. This was very very tiring and stressful and blogging just shifted down the priorities list. But I’m picking things back up for February and hopefully I won’t be overwhelmed with all the things I need to catch up on.

Monthly Wrap-Up: December 2014

December 2014: Holy crap what a month It’s been a pretty eventful month for me! It mellowed out at work a bit, the holiday spirit was fantastic, but then some not so fun things happened and I’M MOVING and then I went to Texas for Christmas and just A LOT OF THINGS ALL OF THE THINGS. Sadly, reading was not really one of those things.

Monthly Wrap-Up: October 2014

October 2014: the month of ch-ch-ch-changes, changes! It feels like October was WAY longer than 31 days, because SO much happened, both online and in real life, as you will see in this post. There were great moments and really low points, and I think I speak for almost all of the book blogging community when I say that I’m exhausted. As such, my reading slowed down, but eh. Ultimately, it was still a good month. …Sort of. October Reads Books Read: Stitching Snow by R.C.
