June Wrap Up!

December Wrap Up

SOME THOUGHTS

It’s summer timeeeeee!!! Long flights and time away from work as given me much needed time to read. It feels wonderful! I’ve also had time to write reviews which is a miracle in itself. And guess what?! I’ve actually enjoyed writing them! Whoa! So, look forward to more book reviews. I can’t believe that I only published two this month. It’s such a relief to enjoy blogging again. It’s been a bit up and down the past couple of months.

I hope everyone has a wonderful July. Enjoy the holidays, sunny weather and hopefully some much deserved time off ❤

December Wrap Up

SOME THOUGHTS

I almost forgot about my wrap up for May! I’m going to keep this very brief because while summer vacation is right around the corner, tons of work needs to be done at school. Exams, grading, parent meetings, packing up my classroom, etc. I do hope to get a lot more reading done this month. My slump has been greatly impacted by my lack of time to read. Fingers crossed that I can turn it around. Anyway, have a wonderful June everyone ❤

SOME THOUGHTS

I just realized that I haven’t posted a wrap up since February! Work has been taking a toll on my free time to read and I’ve been feeling really overwhelmed. But the good news is that the school year is almost over! I have a month and a half left of classes and then I’m freeeeee! SUMMER BREAK!!!!

So, thanks for sticking around and supporting the blog. I really appreciate each and every one of the likes and comments we receive. I’m also trying to return the favour and blog hop a lot more. Things are settling down and I’m really happy to have time to get back to the things that make me happy. Have a wonderful May! ❤

February Wrap Up!

december-wrap-up

SOME THOUGHTS

February was another good month for reading, but for blogging not so much. I’ve been overwhelmed by work and life in general and haven’t dedicated a lot of time to the blog. Basically, most of what’s been posted has been scheduled. I am hoping to turn things around this month, especially with commenting on other blogs.

March is going to be an amazing month! I’m heading to New York next week with my students to attend the National High School Model United Nations simulation and tour around. We are also going to spend a day in Washington, DC. I’ve been to NY loads of times but it never fails to amaze me. Also, spring holidays are getting closer and closer. I need them badly. So, stuff to work towards. I hope you all have a wonderful March! ❤

I cannot even begin to express how grateful I am for all of your likes, comments and follows. ❤

To celebrate our one year anniversary, we are giving away a $25 gift card to The Melting Library on Twitter. The contest is open to everyone, you just need to follow and retweet my original post by February 10th. Good luck!

December Wrap Up!

SOME THOUGHTS

I totally meant to have this up earlier, but due to the holidays I have kind of fallen behind on everything involving the blog. December was a fantastic month for reading (and buying books that were on sale)! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. I went home to Canada to visit with family and friends. The holidays in my house is always busy, we celebrate both Christmas and Chanukah, which means a lot of big dinners and presents. 🙂

Rattle the Stars now has 565 followers and I am blown away by the support for this blog. THANK YOU SO MUCH! You can also follow us on Facebook and Tumblr. If you have a Tumblr please leave your link in the comments. I would like to follow more bookish accounts. I’ve also become absolutely obsessed with creating book and character aesthetics on Pinterest. It’s so much fun!

I hope everyone has a fantastic January! Happy 2017! ❤

SOME THOUGHTS

The year is almost over and the holidays are upon us! I can’t believe how quickly time flies. I started this blog last January and the love and support that it has received has been overwhelming. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. Gina, Lindsay and I are unbelievably grateful for all of your likes, views and comments. We now have 501 followers. You are ALL AMAZING!!

giphy.gif

A bunch of posts have been queued for December but please forgive us if we don’t get back to you right away. Lindsay and I will be heading home to Canada for the Christmas break. I’m not sure how I feel about the extremely cold weather and snow as I managed to avoid it last year. I guess we’ll see…I hate snow. Argh!

Finally, we hope all of you have a wonderful, fun and love filled holiday season! Enjoy the time with family, friends, pets or whoever makes you happy. You DESERVE IT! *hugs*
