Anyway, hello! Welcome to my *ridiculously late* January Wrap Up! ❤ This was a lovely month for this panda in all aspects: reading, living and being generally happy, haha! But time urges and this post will be kind of long, so let’s shall not delay!
Good evening, again! I was going to post this tomorrow, but when I saw all my productiveness during the holidays’ month, I couldn’t wait to share my happiness over being full back on blogging, haha!
In December, I kept last month’s statistics by reading 11 books, 4 mangas and 1 comic book. Okay, so I read way less manga, but I’m proud of myself. This month was CRAZY busy, of course, so I feel like a champ for not dropping my reading stats, haha!
Hello, beautiful people! Welcome to my November Wrap Up and thanks for being here today ❤ All in all, November was pretty good for me, being my first month where I felt in control of my life since I started the new job and since I lost my beautiful darling Lady. The month flew off the window and I can’t believe we have just 23 days now until Christmas ❤ I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE MY FAMILY AGAIN! ❤ ❤
Soo, November was a so-so month for my standards. I’ve read 10 books, 22 volumes of manga and a comic book. I should have known I wouldn’t be able to beat my records of September (book-wise, haha!) and October (pages-wise, haha!). Maybe my reading slumped a little exactly because of all the intensity of the other months… #mystery
I’m still on forced book buying ban. It’s been three months now and I am dying. If it weren’t for my friends, that ever so kindly sent me books and bookish goodies over the months, I’d be typing this post from an asylum or something. Really, guys: thank you so much! I can’t wait for my money to finally cash in on my own account so I can start to purchase presents for everyone! ❤
Hello, good night! For the first time in forever my wrap up is huge and my haul non-existent.
And this is not a prank, my friends! I’ve read 19 books, 1 comic book and 8 manga volumes! So we have 28 reads for March!
I swear I had a life this month, I don’t know how I managed so many books! Almost all of them are already reviewed, all you have to do is click the links bellow 🙂 I’ll update this post as I review the books.
None. Seriously. Just freebies. But I did won three giveaways recently and already received two of the prizes! (Things take so long to get to Brazil, haha!)
This baby was my prize from Suzanne Sutherland’s giveaway. I can’t wait to read her book next month!
And this is the prize that I won from my friends @incriativos giveaway, minus the flowers and funkos, haha! The flowers arrived on the same day, as it was my graduation ceremony day [aka last Wednesday] and the funkos are just saying hello to my new TBR books that will live with them on their shelf, haha!
Hi, there! February was an incredibly busy month. I travelled for two weeks and had lots to do on the other two that I was home, ugh! You think that you will have free time without a job right? No, you won’t.
Anyway, it was a full month in every possible way, haha! Let’s see how I fared it?
I have read 8 books and 8 mangas, haha! I failed hard my February TBR, but oh well. And did I mention that I also failed my personal monthly reading goals? Yup. The good news is that all books are already reviewed, just click on the title to go there 😀
Hello, again! I know I am a little late to do this, but better late than never, haha! January is going to be insane for me, as my younger cousin is going to be here until Sunday and next week I may start a course – more info as my life goes, haha!
But I’m blabbering, let’s do this:

So I won a cattle with lots of books and selected the ones that seemed promising 🙂 I wish I could have saved all books that were there, but there were some destroyed ones by the time, others that I knew for being a bore and some that weren’t my thing at all… Anyway, at least I could save some of them, haha!

Hi, there! Omg, December is really here! I am sooo happy! ❤
November was a slow reading month for me, as I finished my dissertation and had my finals, but I got to read something 🙂 December will be a better month, as I’ll be on vacation after December 04th, haha!
I’ve read 8 books, 4 mangas and 1 comic book in November.
My haul for this month was almost non-existent again. My family has been going through difficult times, so I’m trying not to be a burden, haha! I got some freebies from Amazon and won a giveaway, so this is my haul:
