March + April ’23 book roundup

I've GOT to start finding more interesting ways to intro these book roundups other than talking about the passage of time, but for now I will do it again and say HOLY HELL how is it about to be MAY? (*justin timberlake voice* "IT'S GONNA BE MAY.") March was quite busy at work, and April… Continue reading March + April ’23 book roundup

February ’23 book roundup

Not pictured: The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros because I returned it before I remembered to take a group photo. The shortest month rang in a bit of a slower pace of reading for me, especially compared to the motivation I was feeling last month. I started with a trip to the library… Continue reading February ’23 book roundup

January ’23 book roundup

January came and went in the blink of an eye, and after reading A Little Life over a month ago, I think I'm finally ready to write about it. I wanted to start the reading year off with something I knew would hit hard so when my boyfriend's mom asked if there were any books… Continue reading January ’23 book roundup

2022 Books – Year in Review

Another year of books under the belt, my friends. This year I visited some old favorites, discovered a love for translations, and learned the art of walking away when a book isn't hitting like I need it to. I have monthly roundups on all these books here on thelavenderhours if you want to know my… Continue reading 2022 Books – Year in Review

December ’22 book roundup

The final month of 2022 is a thing of the past! To finish out the year, I turned to one of my recent thrift hauls and opted for entertainment and ease in choosing Matt Haig's, The Midnight Library, a book that ultimately checked both boxes. I then tried to follow with a light-hearted memoir by… Continue reading December ’22 book roundup

November ’22 book roundup

To quote a recent meme I came across, "November flew by like 4 hoes in a Nissan". Work started back up for me around the 15th, so I tried to cram in as much reading as a could in the first two weeks of the month before my endless free time came to an end.… Continue reading November ’22 book roundup

October ’22 book roundup

A new month is upon us, which means I wrote another overly detailed roundup of the books I read over the past few weeks! In October, I found myself doing what I haven't done for a while, which is attempt to read multiple books at once. Some can do it effortlessly; I almost always end… Continue reading October ’22 book roundup

September ’22 book roundup

As I type this 2-book roundup for September on the 4th day of October, I choose to relinquish my self-deprecation in favor of self-motivation. This month I will treat my writing, both creative and book-review-related, as something worth prioritizing and planning, not just as a hobby that I do some of the time, if and… Continue reading September ’22 book roundup

Summer of ’22 book roundup (June/July/August)

a shameless meta-moment to include my own blog in the pic, but who's here to stop me? June Reads: Amplified by living in a seasonal tourist town, summer in the service industry drains me of energy, brain power, and free time, all culminating in a downward fall in my time spent reading. In order to… Continue reading Summer of ’22 book roundup (June/July/August)
