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 a book or write a review so I’m a little disappointed in not the number but rather which books I did read as there were several major titles on my TBR that I really wanted to get to. It’s a new month however, and I have my fingers crossed that it will be a much better one too! Here are the books I read in April!

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 and Breath, and I’m just hoping I don’t accidentally run into any spoilers. That is going to be my major read for March as my TBR is comparatively much shorter this month, but there are still some very promising titles I’m looking forward to, especially The Diamond Eye. Let’s take a look at my February Wrap Up!

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 as well! I wrote my 600th post in September, hit 700 followers here on WordPress in November and Worlds Unlike Our Own officially turned 3 years old in October. Let’s take a look at 2021 on my blog and what’s new this year!

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 hiatus over the past week was much needed and it was great to have some time to relax over the holiday season. I’m really looking forward to 2022 and all the amazing titles slated for release in the upcoming months!

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 been rather disappointing in the number of books I managed to get through, but on the bright side, I’m only 8 books away from my reading challenge goal! Let’s take a look at what was probably the quietest month on my blog in a while.

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 to my schedule all month long and I’m hoping it will continue through to the end of this year, because I have some really fun posts planned for the holiday season. November is going to be another hectic month, with the final few major releases of the year, but it’s also my birthday month, and so my favorite month of the year!

Monthly Wrap Up | September 2021

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 to the most all year, and 2021 is no exception. This month alone is adding 16 new titles to my TBR and I can’t wait to read all of them – make sure to check out my post this Saturday highlighting the books I’m most excited for! With that, let’s take a look at my comparatively quiet August.

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 up than usual, but let’s take a look!

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 reading goal of the year, so I fully expect to have moved it up to 150 by the time I post next month’s wrapup. Let’s take a look!

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 while and needed to take quite a few days from my books which threw my schedule way off track. I did get to read some really great books though and thanks to the blog tours I was part of this month, I picked up two amazing books that I probably wouldn’t have heard of otherwise. Let’s take a look at what I read!

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 seen in some time. I read quite an interesting mix of books this month when I wasn’t completely distracted by the show, and some were totally unexpected in how good – or bad – they turned out to be. Let’s take a look at my April wrap up!

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 myself. It’s finally March though, and there are some amazing books to look forward to this month, from Chain of Iron to Rule of Wolves – I can’t wait!

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 something of a mixed bag, but I did manage to get to a few backlist titles I had left over from last year as well. Let’s take a look at what I read this month!

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 years old in October. Let’s take a look at 2020 on my blog and what’s new this year!

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 month, but I did spend much of my Christmas break catching up on TV shows and movies I’ve been meaning to watch for a while, so overall, a rather productive month!

Monthly Wrap Up | November 2020 | Blogmas Day 1

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 end of December. And of course, Christmas is only weeks away and even though it’s going to be very quiet this year, I’m still very excited!
