Taking it Easy. July 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Hello, Wormies! After my exhausting month, I am trying to take it easy and relax. Hopefully, this strategy will work and I’ll be back and be reenergized. I’m creating something right now and I can’t wait to share it with you sometime next month or so. The highlights of this month for me. It’s also official and I can share it with everyone! Yes! I will be moderating a panel with these amazing Filipino authors: authors Tif Marcelo (The Key To Happily Ever After), Mia Hopkins (Thirsty), Maida Malby (Boracay Vows), and Sarah Smith (Faker) […]

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

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 […]

I Already Met My 2019 Reading Goal! January 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Happy Friday and welcome February, Wormies! It’s been pretty meh in January because I actually got the trifecta of slumps – blogging, reading, and bookstagramming! Gasp! I know! While I have posted consistently on this blog, the posts had already been scheduled and now, I’m at the point where I won’t have posts to schedule now! Anyway, I am slowly getting out of this rut and I have a few ideas set for next month. January was also the month of achievements! In January, I already met my 2019 Reading Goal of 10 […]

It was an Amazing December! | December 2018 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA Hello, bookworms! I’m finally doing a December Wrap-Up post! However, this will be short and sweet because I already posted my 2018 End of the Year Stats!

Busy Fall with Maybe Slow Reading and New-To-Me Authors | November 2018 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Happy new month, Wormies! You may have noticed that I haven’t been as active on the blog for a few weeks now because I had a busy work month! I traveled to Phoenix, Arizona last week, and also a few projects at work were occupying my time. This kinda resulted in less reading time at home – and this is even with the Thanksgiving holiday! Baaaah I will have a couple of weeks off in December so I am super excited to just read and read and read. I have a few […]
