Wrap Ups

Monthly Wrap Up | May 2023

Hello readers! I can’t believe it’s already time for another one of these posts – May has just flown by. I took a brief hiatus from blogging this month as I was away on vacation, so it has been a little slow on the reading front too. It was a fun trip though, and a…

Monthly Wrap Up | April 2023

Hello readers and welcome to another monthly wrap up post! It’s finally May and I’m excited for the warmer weather. I also have a vacation planned this month so I’m really looking forward to that too! On the reading front, I met the goal I set for myself, which was to get to the 1/3rd…

Monthly Wrap Up | March 2023

Welcome to another monthly wrap up! March certainly crawled by, and it was mostly a gloomy and freezing month here, but it’s finally over. On the bright side, the terrible weather made for some excellent reading time and I made quite a bit of progress on my TBR. I’m nearly at the 1/3rd mark of…

Monthly Wrap Up | February 2023

Hello readers, and welcome to another monthly wrap up! February was a month of surprises for me. I set my sights extremely high with four 500+ page novels on my TBR and I’m still quite shocked that I managed to get through all four titles and more without a single reading slump! I’m even more…

Monthly Wrap Up | January 2023

Hello readers and welcome to my first monthly wrap up post of 2023! January has just flown by, and I’m really glad to have started the new year with some amazing reads. In a change of plans, I have decided to pick up a couple of reading challenges for the year and will be including…

2022 Wrap Up – A Year in Books + What’s Coming in 2023

2022 has flown by! It has been an interesting year and in terms of blogging, a rather mixed one for me. The first half of the year was business as usual, but unfortunately blogging had to take something of a backseat during the latter half due to various issues and I had to slow things…

Monthly Wrap Up | December 2022

Happy New Year 2023 readers and welcome to the first monthly wrap up post of the year! I returned from travelling this month just in time to write this post, and it was certainly a productive couple of weeks on the reading front – long flights and layovers make for a lot of reading time,…

Monthly Wrap Up | November 2022

Hello readers, and welcome to my November wrapup! I was still stuck in an on and off reading slump this month, so I decided to stick entirely to mood reading. A good thing too, because where recent months have flown by, November practically crawled by for me and revisiting some old favorites was just the…

Monthly Wrap Up | October 2022

Hello readers, and Happy Halloween! I can’t believe it’s already November! It’s my favorite month of the year, being my birthday month, but I’m hoping to use this month and the next to catch up on my TBR, which I am lagging behind on to an appalling extent. October was ridiculously busy and barely left…

Monthly Wrap Up | September 2022

September has been a rather disappointing month on the reading front for me as I’ve been going through a bit of a reading slump for the past week or so. However, I turned to my trusted remedy for it, reading some lighthearted comics and it seems to be working, so hopefully October will turn out…

Monthly Wrap Up | August 2022

August has been quite the busy month! Fall is technically here, but it still feels like summer – not that I’m complaining, it’ll be freezing again soon enough, so I’m enjoying it while it lasts! Even with the ridiculously hot weather that really did not put me in a reading mood, I did manage to…

Monthly Wrap Up | July 2022

July has been a very slow month in terms of both reading and blogging for me this year. I was on holiday for the first half of the month, and it was so good to travel again! Between that and jet lag though, I only got through a couple of lighter reads, albeit interesting ones.…

Monthly Wrap Up | June 2022

Hello everyone, and welcome to another monthly wrapup! 12 Books 4,568 Pages Goodreads Challenge Progress: 70/150

Monthly Wrap Up | May 2022

Hello readers! I am back after a couple of days away that turned into more or less a two week hiatus that I really didn’t intend to take. Impromptu travel plans really threw things off schedule this month, but I spent a week in Paris and it was lovely to travel again after two long…

Monthly Wrap Up | April 2022

I can’t believe it’s May already! It certainly doesn’t feel like summer here in Canada, but hopefully there’s some nicer weather around the corner. April was a somewhat difficult month for me in terms of both reading and blogging as a more hectic work schedule drastically reduced both the time and motivation to pick up…

Monthly Wrap Up | March 2022

Welcome to my March Wrap Up! This has a long month but it has also been the best reading month I’ve had in a while, with my first five star read of the year, and I even got around to starting a reread of a childhood favorite series. Let’s take a look!

Monthly Wrap Up | February 2022

February literally raced by this year, and most of the reading I did last month was focused on March ARCs. While I did get a good amount of reading done, I’m a little disappointed as I did not have time to get to the most anticipated title on my TBR last month, House of Sky…

Monthly Wrap Up | January 2022

Hello readers, and welcome to my first wrap up post of 2022! I can’t believe how quickly January has flown by! It has been a rather slow reading month for me however so I’m aiming to catch up on my TBR in February.

2021 Wrap Up – A Year in Books + What’s Coming in 2022

Another year gone – and 2021 certainly felt like it would never end at times! But it’s finally over and here’s hoping 2022 will be a better year filled with even more wonderful books. 2021 has been a marvellous blogging year however, and I’ve read so many amazing books and hit some major blogging milestones…

Monthly Wrap Up | December 2021

Happy New Year 2022!December was yet another busy month and I took on the Blogmas challenge for the second time, posting for 25 days. I didn’t get as much reading done as I would have liked, but I did manage to check off a few more major titles in the last weeks of 2021. My…

Monthly Wrap Up | November 2021 | Blogmas 2021: Day 1

Good morning readers, and welcome to my first post of Blogmas 2021! November has been an insanely busy month, so I’m less prepared for the upcoming weeks than I would like, but I have my fingers crossed that I’ll be able to catch up on some reading soon. Speaking of reading, this past month has…

Monthly Wrap Up | October 2021

Hello readers, hope you all had a great Halloween! October was a busy month for me between work and blogging, but as far as reading goes, I’m on track and got around to reading some of the most anticipated books on my TBR this year, which were just as amazing as expected! I actually stuck…

Monthly Wrap Up | September 2021

September has just flown by! It was an excellent reading month, as I finally got to read some of my most anticipated releases of the year, with several more lined up on my TBR in the coming weeks. Let’s take a look! 11 Books 3,888 Pages Goodreads Challenge Progress: 118/150

Monthly Wrap Up | August 2021

August felt like the longest month and was also kind of slow on the reading front for me, courtesy of a reading slump that lasted over a week. So I didn’t get through as many books as I usually do, but there were a few interesting reads. September, however, is the month I look forward…

Monthly Wrap Up | July 2021

July wasn’t a particularly good reading month for me as I had not one but two mini reading slumps in the second half of the month. However, I’m very close to my original reading goal for the year of 100 books, so it is now officially raised to 150! This is a much shorter wrap…

Monthly Wrap Up | June 2021

Welcome back to my monthly wrapup! June felt like the longest month for some reason, but it was also a great reading month. A bunch of my library holds came in at last, so I was able to catch up on some of the new releases from earlier this year. I’m also nearing my first…

Monthly Wrap Up | May 2021

Hello readers! I’m sharing my monthly wrapup a day earlier than usual for May since this week on my blog turned out to be somewhat packed so I’m trying to spread out the posts a little. This month was much slower than usual in terms of reading and blogging since I wasn’t well for a…

Monthly Wrap Up | April 2021

Hello readers! I can’t believe it’s time for another monthly wrap up already – April certainly flew by, and with it the first third of 2021. The major event this month for me was the Shadow and Bone Netflix series, which was amazing – it’s easily one of the best book to screen adaptations I’ve…

Monthly Wrap Up | March 2021

March was a surprisingly productive month for me on both the reading and blogging fronts. For the first time in several months, I’m actually ahead of schedule, and I’m hoping April will be the same. Anyway, on with the post, let’s look at my reading month!

Monthly Wrap Up | February 2021

Hello readers! February is the shortest month of the year, but I always feel like it crawls by, and this year was no exception. I didn’t get as much reading done this month as I would have liked, however, many of those I did read were rather long and heavy so I had to pace…

Monthly Wrap Up | January 2021

Hello readers! One month of the new year is already over and I hope you’re all having a great 2021 so far (or atleast better than 2020). It has been a pretty busy start to the year for me, but I did get a good amount of reading done. New titles this month have been…

2020 Wrap Up – A Year in Books + What’s Coming in 2021

2020 has been the longest year, but it’s over at last. On the blogging front however, it has been an amazing year and I’ve hit so many milestones! I wrote my 300th post in August, hit 500 followers both here on WordPress and on Twitter in September and Worlds Unlike Our Own officially turned 2…

Monthly Wrap Up | December 2020

Happy New Year 2021!! This December was quite a hectic month for me as I attempted a 25 day Blogmas for the first time. Surprisingly enough, I actually managed to post everyday, and it was a lot of fun, so I’ll probably be continuing it going forward too! I read fewer books than usual this…

Monthly Wrap Up | November 2020 | Blogmas Day 1

November has been my busiest month so far this year, between catching up on the last couple of pending 2020 titles and preparing for Blogmas. The major news this month is that I’ve completed my Goodreads reading goal! I won’t be raising it any further, but I’m hoping to get to around 225 by the…

Monthly Wrap Up | October 2020

I can’t believe it’s already November! Hope you are all staying safe and had a great Halloween! October was a much better reading month than I expected, even if The Tower of Nero did send me into a mini reading slump (totally worth it). November is admittedly one of my favourite months of the year,…

Monthly Wrap Up | September 2020

Another month has flown past! July was pretty packed for me in terms of my 2020 TBR and I had a very productive reading month! My NetGalley shelf is exploding yet again and my goal for August is to get it back to that elusive 80% that I had before. In other news, my blog…

Monthly Wrap Up | August 2020

August was comparatively a rather poor reading month for me, mainly because I had several heavier titles to get through, which meant I needed to take longer breaks between books. But fall is finally here, and with so many great books out in the next couple of weeks especially, I can’t wait to dive in!

Monthly Wrap Up | July 2020

Another month has flown past! July was pretty packed for me in terms of my 2020 TBR and I had a very productive reading month! My NetGalley shelf is exploding yet again and my goal for August is to get it back to that elusive 80% that I had before. In other news, my blog…

Monthly Wrap Up | June 2020

Happy Canada Day readers!! I can’t believe it’s July and we’re already halfway through 2020! June went by rather quickly despite yet another month of social distancing. While I didn’t read as many books as last month – my speed drastically slowed down this month for some reason – I am on track with my…

Monthly Wrap Up | May 2020

May has been quite the productive month for me! Admittedly, I spent more of my reading time on comics this month than I intended to, but I did still manage to get some pretty good novels in there too. Another month of mostly staying home has gone by and it looks like I’m going to…

Monthly Wrap Up | April 2020

April felt like the longest month yet this year! Staying indoors freed up a lot more time for reading than usual, and I was able to check off multiple larger titles off both my TBR for this year as well as my backlist, just in time for the flood of new books that usually accompanies…

Monthly Wrap Up | March 2020

March has been a pretty crazy month and the last two weeks especially have flown by. Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. We’re not on lockdown here in Toronto so far, but still trying to stay home as much as possible, which gets boring really quickly, but makes for a lot of added reading…

Monthly Wrap Up | February 2020

February might be the shortest month of the year, but it was my busiest in quite some time! I’m still on track with all of my reading goals and I also made a major dent in my backlist this month, finally finishing the second longest book I had in there, just in time for March, which…

Monthly Wrap Up | January 2020

I can hardly believe a month’s already flown by! January was a great reading month for me, and also a great start to my 2020. I finally managed to finish a book that was slowing me down since November, and more importantly, am completely on track with my 2020 reading list, no backlog this month!…

2019 Wrap Up – A Year in Books + What’s Coming in 2020

It’s New Year’s Eve, and 2018 is coming to a close. January 2019 marks three months of blogging for me, and the only thing I have to say is – I can’t believe I didn’t do this earlier! I’d been toying with the idea of starting my own blog for years, and now that I…

Monthly Wrap Up | December 2019

And here’s the final wrap-up for 2019! This was a much slower reading month for me since I was away on vacation for a while, but I took the time to reread a few favourites both old and new, along with a final few books from my 2019 TBR. Keep an eye out for my 2019…

Monthly Wrap Up | November 2019

November was a less productive month than usual for me. While I did knock off a few major reads still pending on this year’s TBR, I still have a couple of mammoth books that I’m not sure I’ll be able to get to this year, namely The Priory of the Orange Tree and Alison Weir’s…

Monthly Wrap Up | October 2019

This month marked my first blogversary – I can’t believe it’s been a year already, and what an amazing year it has been! Thank you to my wonderful readers for all your support and feedback! October was definitely a busy month – I completed The Heroes of Olympus series re-read I had planned for this…

Monthly Wrap Up | September 2019

September has been an interesting month and I got quite a lot done. I participated in my first blog tour and also caught up on most of my pending ARCs, leaving only 22 books on my 2019 TBR. I think I might actually be able to end this year without adding to my backlist!

Monthly Wrap Up | August 2019

August has been a busy month! Most of my reads this month were ARCs in an effort to tame that bursting list, although I did manage to fit in a few backlist titles too. I published my 100th blog post earlier this month and also hit 200 followers! Thank you so much to my readers…
