June 2017 Wrap Up: #wrapup #June

Anyone who works in education or an education-related field waits for June with bated breath!   It always feels like there is not enough time and yet, time moves at a snail’s pace!  I work in an alternative school setting, so I work through the summer, but it is absolutely more relaxed and I am looking forward to the lighter weight load before I transition back into the public school system in September!

Needless to say, June was an absolutely crazy month for me personally, but, I must say, I had a seriously mediocre month for reading.

With life in the way and a full blown reading slump that plagued me for almost two weeks, I finished June with 25 titles read.

Keep reading to see what I read in June and, as always, be sure to click on the titles to bring you to the full reviews!

April 2017 Wrap Up #wrapup #bookaddict

Screen Shot 2017-01-04 at 5.43.21 PMWell, folks, I blinked and here we are at the end of April!

I know I say this every month, but seriously, time is flying!

I don’t know about you, but I am very much looking forward to May and the start of some warmer weather; it’s been just awful here lately (lots of rain and cold weather) and although I like the weather that forces me inside to read, I’d love to be able to curl up on my deck with a good book and nice breeze!

I read 31 books this month, keeping up with my book-a-day habit but a little less than last month.  I was busy.  What can ya do??!

Keep reading to see my April wrap up!

Weekly Wrap Up: April 22, 2017

screen-shot-2017-01-04-at-5-43-21-pmWell, it’s that time of the week again!

Weekly Wrap Up is the post where I share my general blog updates, my latest Netgalley approvals, my posts from the past week and a wrap up of my top “bookstagram” posts.

What. A Week.

I worked several twelve (and thirteen!) hour days and then had a major blogging snafu! Keep reading for updates and all my blogging news from the last week.

Weekly Wrap Up: April 15, 2017

Screen Shot 2017-01-04 at 5.43.21 PM

Well, it’s that time of the week again!  Weekly Wrap Up is the post where I share my general blog updates, my latest Netgalley approvals, my posts from the past week and a wrap up of my top “bookstagram” posts.

This week has been incredibly confusing for me with the Easter holiday; I can barely even keep up with what day of the week it is!  Does anyone else feel incredibly mixed up with long weekends?

 

Blog Update:

I experienced some serious “blogger burnout” this week; I had a hard time sitting down to write posts or really get ahead.  Usually I try and write my posts a week ahead and have them ready to auto post; however, over the past weeks, I had nothing planned so I was writing posts as I went and this was incredibly hectic!  I’m hoping to take some time this weekend (in between holiday festivities!) to plan out some posts!

 

Netgalley Approvals:

It seems like all my pending titles in my Netgalley vortex were approved at the same time! Looking forward to reading some different things!

 

Book of the Week: 

My highlight of the week was If We Were Villains by M.L Rio; I adored this book!

Check out my review for this one HERE.

POSTS FROM THIS WEEK:

I was on the blog tour for The Beachside Flower Stall.

#cjsreads read The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda.

I had Janel from Keeper of Pages on my Behind the Blog: Meet the Blogger series.

BOOKSTAGRAM POSTS:

I really slacked on my “bookstagram” this week; oh well, next week will be better!

And that pretty much sums up the week!

 Feel free to follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Goodreads!

Happy Reading!

screen-shot-2017-01-04-at-5-43-21-pm

Can you believe it is the end of January? This month seemed to fly by; this first month of 2017 was extremely exciting.   I kicked off #cjsreads2017 with Jessica and Chandra, have started putting together a Meet the Blogger series, signed up for some blog tours, have been planning my wedding and I even had time to squeeze in 27 books (I know, I know…I’m slacking!)

Keep reading to check out what I read this month (and which reads I gave a 5 star rating to!)
