Monthly Wrap Up
It’s the end of the month already, and normally I’d be saying ‘Where did the month go? Omg time flies by!’ but this month, it’s not the case. I’ve been taking advantage of my days, because I’ve lately become aware of how precious time is. I feel content with the way I’ve been managing my time, and even with my college semester being every bit as overwhelming as before; I’ve got to say that I am feeling pretty stress-free right now. Hope the feeling lasts!
As to how my reading has been going; I‘ve got to say I’m impressed at the way I’ve been able to read in between my free time. I go through audiobooks and ebooks and physical books like a well-oiled machine! Writing myself a reading schedule is really doing wonders. I’m still reading through the Harry Potter series! Next book to read is The Goblet of Fire, which was my least favorite movie, but hopefully still a really awesome book!
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but lately I’ve taken to only posting on Mondays and Fridays. I used to post on: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. I think this is the perfect way to get myself organized and not stress so much about what I should post next. Once I’ve scheduled enough posts in advance, I might post again like I used to. Let’s see. 🙂
Unlike Marianne, I feel like the month is slipping from my fingers asap and if I close my eyes long enough, I’ll be already graduating High School. And maybe even be in my first day of college. I’ve been pretty busy with college applications, orientations, school work, books, and babysitting my nephew. Strangely enough, I am not as stressed as I would have been last year. I’ve been real close with an agenda and organizing everything I have to do and not do.
My challenge this year is less than the last two years, but I feel I’m doing well considering I’m reading extremely slow. I’m going back and forth between ebooks and physicals I’ve bought from all genres. And I read Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James. I was mindfucked at first, and by the end I oddly liked it, though I am strongly against some of the things presented, but further info on that will be in my review soon.
The year, so far, looks very promising and I hope I’m able to achieve all I have in mind, and motivate myself to work again in the blog as I used to. And I’d like to take the moment to say how awesome Marianne is for making these posts look stunning. That’s really something. Take it from someone who can barely do that stuff without copying someone else’s code xD

Stacking The Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and it’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books,gifts and of course ebooks! It gives us bloggers a chance to share what we books we’ve acquired over the last week(s).
So, last week I was writing the Stacking the Shelves portion of this post at 2am, and this happened:
So I guess that’s the last time (but not really) that I write a post at that hour! Haha.
None! Yay for not breaking my book ban! 🙂
I hadn’t really heard anything about this book, but I loved the description and knew I simply had to read it. Plus I am in desperate need of a good laugh as of recently.
I got this beauty last Sunday, even though I tried to keep my word on not buying any more books. But it was cheap, so sue me xD Can’t wait to read it and immerse myself into the world of Divergent once again ❤
