Monthly Wrap-Up (July 2017)

051c03bf81b3211f4a67222f665a6e5aacfce467_hq.gifJin and his kisses were such a hit 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!

Monthly Wrap-Up (May & June 2017)

051c03bf81b3211f4a67222f665a6e5aacfce467_hq.gifHello 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!

Top Ten Tuesday (#20): Top Ten Books I Read In One Sitting

toptentuesday2

Still so happy that this meme is back! I really do enjoy this one the most, and this week has proven to be another fun list to compile! Top ten books I read in one sitting…and it should come as no surprise that most of these are comics, graphic novels, and manga, haha. I’m really not a fast reader, so it’s very rare for me to get through a full book in only one sitting! There’s a lot more adulting to do nowadays too, so that definitely interrupts the “one sitting” status most often. But anyway, I hope that you enjoy this week’s list, and happy reading to you all!
