March Wrap Up //2021

Hello, friends, how was your month? Spring is here, and the weather is nice (though not yet nice enough to read outside). Work was interesting and fulfilling, for the most part, and I watched some really good tv shows and movies!

I have a new theme on bookstagram, by the way, and I am loving it. I’m more motivated to be creative and inspired, though I’m also trying to just be more chill, and not feel pressured to post.

As I mentioned before, I’m buying more sustainable this year, and 6 out of the 7 books I bought this month were used (two are gifts for my mother).

Also, unhauled a few more boos, leading to a total of 29 unhauled books in 2021!!

  • Lore – Alexandra Bracken (read)
  • The Scorpio Races – Maggie Stiefvater (read)
  • Temeraire – Naomi Novik
  • Notes on a Nervous Planet – Matt Haig
  • Inappropriate by Vi Keeland (new)

I had a slower reading month. Physical and mental exhaustion, and less free time just didn’t let me read as much. Still, I enjoyed all the books I read this month. Some I loved, most were average fun (lots of 3 star reads), but only one or two weren’t great. (Also, I won’t be mentioning books I read for work or uni on the blog from now on, but they still might be on my goodreads).

I discovered a new favorite genre/subgenre(?) this month: dark fantasy adult romance. It has all the fun of adult romance with the excitement, unpredictable aspects of fantasy, and it can be kind of dark… (books by Laura Thalassa, and Black Sunshine by Karina Halle🖤).

I read 12 books this month. You can find reviews for all of these, either here in the blog or on my goodreads.

The Sunday Post: a week in review

The Sunday post is a weekly meme hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news and recap what happened over the past week.

Sunday, march 7th 2021. It’s been a while since I did one of these, but now that I’ll be less active blogging and with less free time, I figured a recap now and then would make me feel a it lighter at the end of the week.


I started my curricular internship this week. For those of you unaware, I’m currently in the final stretch of a master’s degree in Publishing. This 3-month internship at a small publishing company, and the consequent report, will be my final project (or term paper). I was told I can work whatever schedule I want as long as the tasks get done, but I’m working 9-5 for now while I still have the energy and good mental health days. (*I’ll also be working remotely for the whole 3 months). My tasks so far have been some text editing and some maintenance of book information on their online catalogue so far.

Mid-Year Update of 2020:

Hello, hello! It’s time for a mid-year reading update and I’m honestly surprised with how many books I’ve read because I’ve been through some slumps… It’s been a crazy year for obvious reasons and I’m just grateful to be okay and to have been so lucky to be able to keep reading amazing books again this year. And I’m so grateful for all the amazing people in the bookish community for all the support and love that’s been going around for the past few months.

Mid-Year Reading Update of 2019:

It’s the middle of the year at last.  This has been such an eventful year, with lots of ups and downs for me, though I think it’s been mostly positive. And I’ve read sooo many books!
