I Overbooked Myself Last Month! October 2019 Monthly Wraps

I Overbooked Myself Last Month! October 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Happy Tuesday, Wormies! It’s been a crazy October for me! I was moderating a panel at The Ripped Bodice, and I also ended up overbooking myself! See, there were so many good books that I wanted to read publishing around the same time and I could not help but request them. So, I was basically drowning in all the books and I had a hard time keeping up! This really made me rethink my requesting practices and I have now tried to hold-off in requesting books. Wish me luck! I have also […]

Changes | September 2019 Monthly Wraps

Changes | September 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Hello, fellow Wormies! Did you notice something different with my blog? YES! I finally caved and modified it a bit! I just had this convo between Malia @ Romance Shmomance and I told her that I am a creature of habit. So. While my blog has been modified, it still has the same look, with only slight changes! More on this will be on another blog post. I have updated my blog header and basically renamed my blog, or used my original name I Heart Romance. While I will still continue to review Young […]

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Hello fellow, Wormies! It’s another month and we have entered the BER months! What does this mean? It means that it’s almost Christmas! One of my favorite (and bittersweet) holidays! Are you as excited as I am for Christmas? I think it’s time to write up another bookish Christmas wishlist and hopefully, Santa’s helpers will grant your wish early! Or at least, they have time to plan and hide the spoils from you! Let’s Get Personal So, I was debating about talking about this, and I have been sitting on it for over a […]

This was an extremely exhausting month! June 2019 Monthly Wraps

This was an extremely exhausting month! June 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA Happy new month, Wormies! I am currently blogging in Vegas right now and man, did I need this short weekend getaway! Although, I have been really traveling a lot for work this month. In fact, I landed in Burbank on Friday and left Burbank again for Vegas on Saturday. Yeah, I’m such a jet setter right now. Note the sarcasm. A lot of things happened IRL to me in the month of June. While I won’t discuss the particulars, I just want to say that life is extremely unpredictable. I didn’t read […]

Work + Reading, Oh My! May 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Happy new month, Wormies! It’s June and I just found out that June is Audiobook Month?! Anyway, YAY! I did not know that this was a thing! I’ve mostly switched to audiobooks now and I am not looking back! So, last month, I talked about traveling for work. And yes, I have been and will be traveling for work until July (that I know of). Despite all the traveling, I managed to read 12 books, with an additional 2 DNFs – Hot and Badgered by Shelly Laurenston and Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen. I feel so […]

Travel Time + Binge Watching + Reading, Oh My! April 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Happy new month, Wormies! I usually post on the first or second day of the month but I’ve been busy – well, starting to be! I have work training until July which means there will be multiple travel trips for me around CA and Arizona. I’m so glad I got TSA pre-check so it’s a breeze when I pass through TSA. Anyway, I was traveling the last month of April and I’m currently traveling right now (LOL) but I managed to read a few books. I’ve now been selective about the […]

Reading and Being Unplugged from Social Media | March 2019 Monthly Wraps

Reading and Being Unplugged from Social Media | March 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   As you may have known, I have been saying that I am in a slump for the last couple of months and I think NOW it shows. I have been sorta offline and haven’t been blogging but I am still quite active on bookstagram. I am almost getting out of this slump I’m in but I think one of the main contributing factors is that I have been traveling for work. At least it’s not every single week but I have traveled three times in March, another longer travel in April […]
