November 2019 || Monthly Wrap Up

Hello beautiful people!

Another month of basically disappearing … sorry! Honestly, life’s just been super busy but in the most lovely and wonderful way possible. I’ve been going to lots of fun events, hanging out with amazing people and just enjoying the winter vibes (we need the snow back though). I can’t promise that December will be any better, but I’m going to try my best!

Books I Read

Honestly? Not much ha-ha! I really do want to get more active again, but I think I’ve slowly come to realize that I just can’t post that frequently AND have a good quality posts (those of you who can … show me your skills please). I’d rather wait until I have something really concrete to post. And as much as I love book tags and memes, I want to focus my attention on buddy reads and book reviews and bullet journal posts. I’d also really like to start posting fun book discussions or tips and tricks like I use to once upon a time.

So I MAY not post as much, but I do plan to still be active by interacting with you lot!

Oh! There’s some cool news in the Instagram life! Janice, the owner of Bibliophile Belle’s Boutique, has been wonderful enough to select me as one of her reps from December 2019 to February 2020 … HOW COOL IS THAT?! I ADORE her store (I swear, almost all my bookmarks are from her store), so this was wonderful news for me! I was ALSO asked to be an influencer in December 2019 and February 2020 for Janice (@bibliophile.belle) and Kristen’s (@my.book.is.calling) co-owned business, The Uniquely Bookish Box! I published an unboxing post for the October 2019 box, if you’re curious to know more. All my rep codes are in a highlight on my Instagram page but if you’re curious:

β†  Bibliophile Belle’s Boutique: markthethoughts15 (15% off purchase)

β†  The Uniquely Bookish Box: markthethoughts10 (10% off purchase)


Personal Life Updates

Oh wow … lots? Ha-ha! I’ve been a busy bee! Going to concerts, board game places, hosting a housewarming party and much more! It’s been great to just be close with my friends. It sucks that I haven’t been able to read as much, but I don’t regret taking some time to interact with the real world ha-ha. Unfortunately, I was sick for almost all of November … which was another reason I was not posting … I had absolutely no energy or drive to post. But I’m starting to feel much better!

  1. Sounds like you had a great month, and I’m glad that you had so much time to hang out with friends too! πŸ’–Board games and a housewarming party sounds super fun!! and HUGE CONGRATS on being selected as reps for both companies. I loved your IG posts about them too. I hope December treats you well and that you’re able to balance both writing posts that you enjoy, buddy reads, and real life~!

  2. I’m glad to hear that you are having a great time, despite being very busy! πŸ˜€ I really want to read Heartstopper, it seems like a fun and cute graphic novel. Hopefully I’ll be able to get my hands on it soon. Congrats on getting the reps! ❀
