March ’21 Wrap-up & Book Haul

Oops. Is it almost April and I forgot to write this post? …Maybe. For some reason I thought I already had? I don’t know what’s going on with my brain… 😛

Check out the previous months’ wrap-up and book haul:

January ’21 Wrap-up & Book Haul

The first month of 2021 is over! January was a fun month for me simply because it was my birthday, and I like to celebrate all month long! 😛 In terms of a reading month, it was slow. After a long holiday break, I returned to work and it took a bit to get back into the routine.

I also “beat” Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and started playing Overcooked! 2 on Nintendo Switch, so my time hasn’t wholly been dedicated to books, hehe.

December ’20 Wrap-up and Book Haul!

If I haven’t said it yet, Happy New Year and welcome to 2021! I was on holiday break for 2.5 weeks and spent a lot of time trying to catch up on my Goodreads reading goal (but I didn’t reach it). Because of that, I’m pretty sure I read more books last month than any other months in 2020.

A special shoutout to historical romance and new adult romance for helping me reach that goal, LOL. (As you’ll soon see.)

Also, apparently I didn’t do a wrap-up and book haul for November… So… oops! Sorry if you were looking forward to that.

July ’20 Wrap-up and Book Haul!

Happy August, everyone! I hope the past month has treated you well despite all the craziness in the world. For me, I’ve transitioned going back to the work full-time, so instead of working from home I’m now commuting back and forth to work. To be honest the transition has been hard, but being back into a daily routine is going well.

May ’20 Wrap-up and Book Haul!

I’m sure I’m not the only one when I say the pandemic has really messed with my brain, especially in keeping track with the days. I can’t believe it’s already June! But I returned to my physical work office for the first time this week after not commuting to and from work for almost 3 months.

Anyway, that’s not what this post is about! Let’s talk about the books I read and the ones I hauled!

March ’20 Wrap-up and Book Haul!

Can I just say that March has been such a weird time? The coronavirus has affected almost everyone at this point. I’ve been telecommuting for over two weeks now. To say there aren’t perks of working from home would be a lie. I like being able to just roll out of bed and still wear by pajamas while checking my work e-mails. I’m pretty sure my dog Ollie is both happy and confused as to why I’m saying home every day, lol. But telecommuting also has its challenges. For me, that’s mainly the motivation to actually do work. But that’s another story. 😛

Anyway! March is finally behind us. Did it seem to last a really long time to you or was that just me? 😜 One of the funnest things I’ve done this month is attend the North Texas Teen Book festival, which is where a large portion of this month’s book haul comes from.

So…let’s get to it!

January ’20 Wrap-up & Book Haul!

We made it! We survived the first month of 2020 and let me tell you, it felt looooooong. Please tell me I’m not the only one who thought this? It felt like there were 60 days in January! Seriously!

Anyway, I set my Goodreads goal to 100 books for 2020. I didn’t quite make it last year, but I have higher hopes this year. So far, I think we’re off to a great start (even though Goodreads already tells me I’m 1 book behind schedule).
