Life Happens | January 2020 Monthly Wraps

Life Happens | January 2020 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance   There is always that time where you just don’t want to do anything. Couple that with the flu and you have an epic stepback from the bookstagram and bookish community. January has just been a month. What with #RWAshitshow, my new job (that I’m loving, by the way), and just trying to get by every single day, it really has been one heck of a month. Anyway, I’ve fully regenerated and now starting to be more active on here and on bookstagram! Hit me up over there and say hi! I’ve not bee fully […]

Slowing Down for the Holidays | November 2019 Monthly Wraps

Slowing Down for the Holidays | November 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Happy Monday, Wormies! Happy Holidays! It’s officially December and we have 24 days left until Christmas! I say 24 because Filipinos celebrate on the 24th so we are up at midnight to greet the 25th! If you’ve been to the Philippines, you’ll obviously notice that Christmas is the best time to visit because of the celebrations! I hope to spend Christmas there again soon! I’ve also been slowing down with my reading because of the holidays! It’s usually one of the few months that I normally don’t read a lot (although […]

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 […]

Books and then some | August 2019 Monthly Wraps

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 […]
