Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books I Read in 2018

Happy New Year!! I know this was technically last week's topic, but shhh! I'm going to do it anyways because I didn't get a chance to do it yet. I ended up reading way more books than I expected to in 2018, so picking just ten was actually pretty difficult. In the order that I read them, … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books I Read in 2018

Looking Back at 2018

Every year for the past few years (2015, 2016, 2017) I've made one of these posts, and each year I'm even more surprised by how much can be packed into just twelve months. 2018 was a whirlwind year. Sometimes it's hard to believe that the first half of it was spent in magical Oxford, England, … Continue reading Looking Back at 2018

SEPTEMBER 2018 | Wrap-Up

September has come and gone faster than I thought possible, especially considering how much has happened in the past month. It's hard to believe that we're already five weeks into the semester! Here's what I've been up to: In September I read a total of 8 books: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo … Continue reading SEPTEMBER 2018 | Wrap-Up

AUGUST 2018 | Wrap-Up

What a month August was! I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels like August is a month of transition. Perhaps this feeling has been instilled in me from decades of back-to-school prep, but it nevertheless rings true every year. Here's what I've been up to this past month: In August I read a … Continue reading AUGUST 2018 | Wrap-Up

JULY 2018 | Wrap-Up

What's this? A blog post? For the first time in weeks?! July was a ridiculously busy, hectic month for me, meaning that I was too occupied with other things to have any free time to blog. While I won't be back to my full blogging self yet (still so much to get done!) I thought it would … Continue reading JULY 2018 | Wrap-Up

JUNE 2018 | Wrap-Up

What a wild month of June it was! So much has happened recently that I don't even know where to begin. (I know I say something like this every month, but this time I really mean it!). Here's what I've been up to: In June I read a total of 5 books: The Ministry of Utmost Happiness by … Continue reading JUNE 2018 | Wrap-Up

MAY 2018 | Wrap-Up

You know what they say: "April showers bring May flowers..." Well, this past month of May was certainly in full bloom! From making it over halfway through Trinity term, doing the usual summertime-in-Oxford activities, and hosting friends and family when they come to visit, I've barely had time to breathe lately. May was a whirlwind … Continue reading MAY 2018 | Wrap-Up

FEBRUARY 2018 | Wrap-Up

Happy March! It's that time once again to look back on the last month's books, favorites, adventures, and highlights. I'm just going to ignore the fact that it's March already and spring has basically already arrived in England which means we're getting closer to summer... but enough looking ahead! Here's what I was up to … Continue reading FEBRUARY 2018 | Wrap-Up

JANUARY 2018 | Wrap-Up

The first month of 2018 is officially complete! Resolutions have been made (and inevitably some have been dropped...), classes have resumed, and the busy bustling of everyday life is back in full swing once again. January through March or April tends to be my least favorite time of year because I don't have any fun … Continue reading JANUARY 2018 | Wrap-Up

Feminist Fridays: Nonfiction for 2018

A new year is right around the corner (eek!) which means it's time to take a look at what 2018 will hold in terms of reading. I've tried not to go overboard with setting goals for next year, but I something I would really like to do is read more feminist nonfiction in 2018. Today … Continue reading Feminist Fridays: Nonfiction for 2018
