Currently Reading, Watching, Listening To, Trying (#8)

ezgif-1-f3fef490bdI haven’t made one of these posts since August 16th, so I thought that it was due time to make another! Of course, I can’t bring myself to change the intro GIF for these posts, because it’s so fitting, and it’s BTS, and look at how cute they were with their light/pastel hair colours! My cuties. I still remember when they started out…and now I may have to re-visit my very out of date kpop collection. Haha. But anyway, here’s what I’ve been reading, watching, listening to, and trying!

Currently Reading, Watching, Listening To, Trying (#7)

ezgif-1-f3fef490bdIt’s update time! First of all, I wanted to apologize for the lack of reviews (and post in general) over the last few weeks. My boyfriend had 2 weeks off (and he doesn’t like to relax and sit around too much, but loves spending time with me…so you can put 2 and 2 together). I was also preparing for, and attending, multiple interviews, which also took up some of my time. And what about weekends, you ask? Those are just as insane, if not more so! But, there has been some progress, so please read on if you enjoy these posts!

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!
