A Series of Unfortunate Events! July 2020 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Good morning, Wormies! It’s another month and we are closer to the end of the year! I just feel like it’s been 20 thousand years since 2020 started! Gahh I need this year to be over now. If you are in the US, the Presidential Election is in November so please register to vote. I’m in California and we have mail-in voting. This will also be my first Presidential election since I became a US Citizen and Pierre and I are definitely voting. Also, don’t forget to complete the 2020 Census! […]

I Missed Last Month’s Wrap-up! Oh My! June 2020 Monthly Wraps

The last couple of months on I Heart Romance   Hello, lovely Wormies! It’s another month and we have already crossed over half of the year! Unfortunately, the world is still not off lockdown.

Hopefully, everything will be okay. On a good […]

What Have You Been Doing to Cope? Currently Reading 2020 Weeks 15-20

Bookish updates in the last 5 weeks   Hello, Wormies. I think it was good to have a quick break with blogging. I am currently working on the next Read a Romance Book series featuring Contemporary Romance. This is a huge undertaking because it is a huge genre, but I am thankful that a lot of you have been recommending their contemporary must-reads! I’ve been trying to keep my spirits high and slowly reading. It’s not been going well, but I’m trying to get my spirits up. I have been watching a few shows on Netflix and Disney+! Also, rewatching Avatar: The […]

I Haven’t Been Reading… | April 2020 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Hello everybody! I have been MIA again and we all know why right? I have been more active on Instagram, though and I think that will be where I will be hanging out in the foreseeable future. Or at least, when I have come to terms with our current situation. Sadly, I was only able to read two books. GASP! Yeah, I know. I will do better this month!       I buddy read Stranger in My Arms with a few girls from Instagram and it is my top read (or reread) […]

Books I Enjoyed but Rarely Talk About

Books I Enjoyed but Rarely Talk About

Top Three Tuesday is my spin on Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl     Why I love this The City of Brass really blew me away! I was not expecting what happened in this book to happen! This was one of my top reads from last year and even though I was blown away by it, I don’t talk about it too much! Even on Instagram! I guess it’s because it’s not a romance. Goodreads | Amazon | Review   Why I love this I love Phoenix Unbound so much! This was also one of my top reads […]

It’s the End of the World as We Know It… and I don’t Feel Fine | March 2020 Monthly Wraps

It’s the End of the World as We Know It… and I don’t Feel Fine | March 2020 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   It’s sad and scary times we are in right now, Wormies. I’ve been trying really hard to limit getting on social media or listening to the news but I just can’t seem to avoid anything. Even though I know that this will pass, it is still one of the scariest things that has ever happened this decade – and we are only 3 months in! It’s good that we have technology so we can communicate with people who are in other countries.  I was able to video chat with my fam […]
