Jin and his kisses were such a hint last month that I decided to let him send you more kisses with this July wrap-up! Wow, it’s August already! I don’t know if I feel as if July went by quickly or slowly…it seems to change for me depending on the day. But I feel like it’s the former more than the latter. Summers usually fly by for me because I’m a lot more busy with friends and family while we’re enjoying the (usually) nicer weather here in Canada. Winter has all of us feeling a lot more lethargic, which is fine since that means more reading and blogging time for me. But anyways, here is what’s been going on on Flavia the Bibliophile in the past month!
Hello everyone! (Please enjoy the kisses sent to you from my BTS bias, Jin, GIF on the left)! He is seriously the cutest and dorkiest, and I love him. But anyway! As some of you may have noticed, I did not post a monthly wrap-up for May, and that’s because I was away on vacation for most of that month, and therefore hadn’t posted enough to put in a wrap-up! So, just as I’ve done with March and April, I decided to just attach the posts from May to my June wrap-up, and just put them up that way together. It just made more sense to me!
I’m not sure what happened exactly, but I somehow completely failed at writing and posting a wrap-up for March! OOPS! So, to make up for it to March (my birthday month, woopsie), and more importantly, you guys, I shall make this a joint wrap-up post. Let’s also hope that I won’t have to say sorry for doing “it again”!
February was soooo shoooort. Like, what do I even do with that?! It just flew by. I guess it doesn’t help that I spent most of it sick with the worst virus I’ve ever experienced. Seriously. It was horrid, and I wouldn’t wish it upon my worst enemies. Although February has come and gone far too quickly, I am excited about March because, 1) spring, and 2) it’s my birthday month! I don’t look forward to getting older, but am excited for the books I’ll be reading the products I’ll be trying and reviewing! I’m also of course looking forward to good times with friends, and getting my hair done for the first time in a while! Whoo!
January felt like such a long month! I don’t know if it’s because it’s the first month of the year or what, but it just seemed to draaag. Anyone else feel that way? Didn’t help that all of our snow melted here, and we had nothing but grey skies. But anyway, it’s over now and I’m looking forward to February, the month of loooooove! ❤
Somehow 2017 has snuck up on us, and 2016 has come to an end. While some of us celebrate the memories and achievements from the past year, others are glad to see 2016 go. And then there are those who feel a little bit of both, and I am one of those people.
And so, another month has passed and we are now entering the last 31 days of 2016. Can you believe it?! Time sure does fly. It feels as if it was just yesterday that January 2016 had begun, and I was pulling my hair out while looking over all of the course work looming in front of me, standing between me and my Master’s degree, haha. I cannot believe that it will now have been a year minus 31 days since that crazy time. Now I know that the above GIF will not be accurate for all of you (I’m not ignorant enough to believe that it snows everywhere in the world during this time of year), but here in Canada, December usually ends up looking like a winter wonderland over next months.
First and foremost….
I don’t know about you, but this is one of my favourite holidays! Unluckily, I woke up sick this morning, but I don’t think that I will let that stop me from getting dressed up and going to a haunted house hosted by my mother-in-law’s neighbours! I’m not sure what I’ll dress up as (gasp…I know, the last-minute-ness, and I swear I never let this happen! But I was away from Oct 2nd until the 27th and I just didn’t have time to figure something out)…but I think I’ll go with some skeleton face paint!
Firstly, I would like to apologize for posting this Wrap-up fairly late. They will normally be going up on the last day of each respective month, but at the end of September, I was preparing for a long journey to Romania, and my boyfriend and I also celebrated our anniversary on October 1st. Writing this post in advance was also impossible, due to my schedule during the weeks leading up to my anniversary and trip.
Now that I’m settled in at my grandparents’ in Romania, however, I have the time to sit and write this post! Note: I was going to complete and publish this post yesterday (Oct. 4), but my wifi here is finicky and it went out before I could finish. And then it was bed time, haha. Sorry guys!
August has come to an end (far too quickly if you ask me), and it’s time for my monthly wrap-up. While for the last 2 months I’ve been posting these wrap ups only in the newsletter, I have decided that I will not be doing the newsletter again, until there are more sign-ups, haha. Therefore, my monthly wrap-ups will come in the form of blog posts, until further notice.
