The Monthly Recap #3

The Monthly Recap

Hi guys!

For most of this month I was in India, visiting family and relaxing. I ended up doing a lot of reading and writing this month because I didn’t have a lot to do with my time and was feeling a bit bored. I also started getting way more active on my tumblr blog (ihoardwords) where I reblog a lot of literature related things (graphics, poetry, prose).

Below I’ve linked up all the posts I published this month and you can check out any that you missed.

777 Challenge

Snazzy Snippets

As you can see, I haven’t been done as many book reviews this month and that’s not because I had a reading slump (I’ve been reading tons actually) but because I decided to branch out on my blog. I realised that I wanted to share more writing-related things on this blog so I participated in things like the 777 challenge and writing link-ups. This blog is always going to be more about the books I read than the stuff I’m writing but you can expect to see more writing related posts in the future

On a side note, feel free to let me know which blog features you liked best. I’ve added a few more because I want lots of variety on this blog (although I might end up killing some because I no longer feel passionate about them..who knows.)

So how did your month ago?

The Monthly Recap

Hello everyone!

The Monthly Recap is a feature post where I catch you up on the posts you missed. I literally only started posting on this blog a week ago but what the heck, may as well kick off this feature now! 🙂

Blog Posts:

Book Review: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

In which I talk about how much I loved this book (and how freaking adorable it is!).

Let’s Discuss: What To Read Next?!

I talk about all the things that help me decide what to read next.

Book Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

And I finally get around to reviewing that book I received on netgalley months ago. Sorry! I meant to publish a review but then there was a blogging slump..and the rest is ancient history. Anyway, I’m catching up on my ARCs but I’ve ended up DNFing a lot of books (which might be why I haven’t published a review for them).

The Coffee Book Tag

I saw this at Paper Fury and couldn’t resist joining in (even though I don’t even drink coffee!). It was so much fun and if you want to try it, then I tag YOU!

This first month (or week) of blogging I had about 150 blog views, 70 visitors, 10 comments and 15 followers! Thank-you so much to everyone who took a chance on my brand new book blog and followed. To anyone who commented/liked/viewed/followed my blog: you guys are AWESOME (please keep visiting!).

So that happened! How has your month been? And since I’m 100% bored and procrastinating for exams, feel free to leave a link to a blog post you published this month! (If you have exams too, good luck!)
