• Mid-Year Check In + Tour de France

    Hello! Somehow, half the year has already passed, so I figured I would give a bit of an update and then do my own take on the Mid-Year Book Tag, by theming it around the Tour de France! Two weeks ago, I graduated from high school, and this autumn I will be going off to college! I honestly cannot believe how fast time has gone by. I think later this summer, I will do a more detailed post about going off to college and about the end of high school. So this is just a small update for now. In college, I will be studying epidemiology, and hopefully pursuing a…

  • February Wrap Up

    Happy March! While in some instances, February flew by, it also feels like it’s been February forever, so I’m excited for the new month! I didn’t read too much this month, but I got out of my reading slump, so I’m happy! Anyway, let’s just jump into my wrap-up!

  • January Wrap Up

    Hi! So January has officially ended so it’s time for my wrap up! This year, I wanted to make my wrap ups slightly different from last year. I will still give the stats and short thoughts on all the books I read, but I will no longer include a TBR for the next month, as I never actually stuck to it. As well, I’ll be listing the genres of each book to give a bit more info on what it’s about. I thought at the end of the wrap up, I’d also discuss some non-book related things that I did/completed in the month, like tv shows, movies, or just life…
