December Wrap-Up & January TBR

Happy New Year! I hope your holidays have been wonderful. I was really excited for Christmas and New Year but wasn’t in the mood for reading. I only read three books last month but am glad I didn’t force myself to finish more. Instead, I spent more time trying to figure out what I want to achieve this year and spent more time with my family.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Hope Santa Gives Me This Year

santaTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme’s Christmas wishlist, so I picked out 10 books I desperately want to read but don’t want to purchase myself (either it’s too expensive or I’m afraid I will hate it if it turns out to be mediocre).

End of My 2-month Hiatus: November Wrap-up & December TBR

Hey, guys! It’s been so long and I miss my book-blogging community. After the past two crazy months, I finally have a little bit of free time to update this blog. Forgive me for being gone for so long without any notice.

October was a hellish month for me. I barely had any time to read and only managed to finish 3 books. I was in a serious reading slump, and I had no interest in any bookish stuff. It sucked so much. The first half of last month was the same, until things got better after the second half. That’s when I picked up reading again and enjoyed 7 reads.

Behind The Pages Lip Balms Review

I am pretty sure every bookstagrammer knows about Behind The Pages. They have the best usable bookish items that you can’t help repurchasing!

From what I know, the first products Behind The Pages sold were bookmarks, but then Gina, the owner of this blog/shop, starts making posters an bookish goats milk soaps. The store is a sensation in the bookstagram community! Later, bookish lip balms were also added, and now body lotions and perfume are available too.

Personally, I wasn’t very interested in the bookmarks. I always have my eyes on the soaps though, but since I am not sure if I like the scent or not, I didn’t buy any. Then, the lip balms were out and I have already purchased 7 of them up til now.

I know a lot of people wonder what each of the scents actually smells like, so I’m going to describe it the best I can.
