Hello beautiful people!
*sigh* … This has probably been my worst blogging month in a LONG time. To be frank, I just haven’t been as motivated to blog; it almost feels too mentally exhausting to come up with a topic and write up a post, rather than being a fun and exciting part of my day.
I do hope you are all well, and don’t worry — I’m not leaving. However, I will be making some changes to help ease me back into blogging — changing my focus around a bit.
Books I Read
Brief Thoughts: “Wild at Heart is a FANTASTIC sequel to Tucker’s Wild series, exploring new hurdles for Calla and Jonah to overcome. This goes BEYOND relationship quarrels, since Alaska has its own set of dangers and complications that Alaskans face every day. The beautifully rich and descriptive rural Alaskan setting takes your breath away, full of character and uniqueness. The introduction of new characters with the occurrence of ones from The Simple Wild brought a whole new level to this story … they’re so well developed that they feel like real people. I think that’s the BIGGEST achievement with Tucker’s novel … her stories and the characters within feel so real that you want to continue watching them grow, seeing where their lives take them next. This isn’t just a romance story … it’s about family, changes, self-discovery, survival and so much more. I don’t know if there’s going to be a sequel, but I really hope so!”
Favourite Posts of the Month
I really meant to put something here … but THAT’S how bad I’ve been at blogging … and I can’t find a way to search up all the posts I liked this past month to find the ones I really liked … sorry …
Goodreads Reading Challenge
I am now 4 book behind schedule … but I may only be 3 again when I post this, since I’m posting this a couple days before the end of the month!

As I mentioned before, I really haven’t been motivated to blog. Honestly, it’s more exhausting and straining as of late … to the point I confided with a fellow blogger to ask her opinion about whether I should stop blogging or not. But I think a lot of it is the types of posts I write. I love my reviews and buddy reads and bullet journal posts … but everything else has become less fun. Rather than Down the TBR Holes and Book Tags, I’d rather start doing more of the following: book recommendations, book hauls, new releases I’m excited for, book discussions, lifestyle posts, monthly goals.
So there might be some changes coming … especially regarding the types of posts I write. I also may not post as frequently as I once did, since I really want to focus on quality over quantity.
Personal Life Updates
Another reading slump … I truly think it’s the ground hog day feeling getting to me. We are still in quarantine here due to COVID … and with people not obeying social distancing, I don’t think we will be leaving it anytime soon … it’s definitely been … taxing. I’m starting to want to read again though, so hopefully June will be a better month.
The fitness challenge I participated in last month was ALMOST complete! I finished 25 out of 30 days, which I’m honestly super pleased with (especially since I started the challenge late). After a week of little fitness, my SO and I are back at it … and it feels really good. We don’t work out every day at the moment, but it’s been nice to actually change it up.
Other than that … my life consists of working from home, Sims 4 and lots of Netflix. We just finished watching a Canadian show called Schitt’s Creek … it’s so good! I was really sad to see it end, but I also really enjoyed how they didn’t prolong it … making it grow old or boring. We are now watching all the Harry Potter films in order, with a plan to watch Picard and Sense8 next (I’ve already seen Sense8, but Gray hasn’t so it’s really fun seeing his reactions to the show).
