August Updates

Posted 30 August, 2019 by Lianne in Website / 2 Comments

Where has the summer gone? lol seems like yesterday I was bemoaning how it was going to be work, work, work for me (*cue song here*). And lo and behold now we’re at the end of summer and classes are around the corner D= Anyway, here’s what has been going on around my blog for the month of August:

+++

  1. Books reviewed this month include Susanna Kearsley’s A Desperate Fortune (review) and Meg Wolitzer’s The Interestings (review). You can check out all the books I’ve reviewed recently in the book review tag.
  2. The rest of the month was dedicated to catching up on all of my recent travels: from last year’s trip to Portugal to this year’s trip to the Netherlands and Iceland with side trips to Belgium and Germany. It was quite a feat but I’m quite proud to finally have caught up and share my travels with all of you. You can check out all of those posts in this category.
  3. My latest poetry collection, Scrawled Stars, is available online now (Amazon.com, the Book Depository, and elsewhere)! You can learn more about it in this post. Enjoy!

And that’s about it about the blog for the month of August! Well, back unto the breach for me. Have a wonderful Labour Day weekend!

And that’s about it from the blog for the month of May! Fingers crossed I get a bit done on the blog over the next few months such as updating certain elements (goodness knows that header was meant to be updated aaaaaages ago to reflect the current title of the blog) but we’ll see. There’s a lot of shuffling to happen the next few months. But anyway, have a lovely start to June!

Hi everyone! I’ve been blogging sort of casually for the last few months so I don’t know if there’s any point in placing placeholder posts here on my blog to inform this but the blog will be going on hiatus for a month actually (15 April – 13 May 2019): for the next two weeks I’ll be on exam mode (*le sigh*), and after that I’ll be heading out for vacation (omg finally *cries*)! From the 30th onward you can catch me over at Instagram where I’ll be posting some of my holiday photos 😉

Wishing everyone a lovely April, Easter weekend, and start of May! 🙂
