My Monthly Adventures: December 2017 | Procrastination, Cat Bribes, and Unexplainable Puns

Whale hello there!


I know this is late, and before I apologize for being such a terrible blogger, I want to tell you guys why I did not post this sooner.


Excuses for Why I Did Not Wanna Write This Post...'Cause Oops, I May Do It Again

  • Stress, stress, stress...to be the perfect book blogger, to be the perfect student, to be the perfect cat mommy
  • I did not know how you would take the pun gif.
  • I did not feel like writing this.
    • And I did not know how you would react to hearing that your (favorite) blogger did not want to write her recap and get into a writing funk. I have been writing a lot more, and I do not want to mess this up.
  • And finally, I barely remember what happened in December other than finals. Ugh! But, can I bribe you with a picture of a cute cat?

Carrying on, December was an okay month for me. With all the stress of college finals, I was worried I would be stuck with my nose in a book, like always; however, the books would not count towards my Goodreads goal as it would have been a bunch of assigned reading. But, huzzah! I read a lot more than just college textbooks and notes as you will see in a moment when I write that I read 11 books. 11 books! It has been such a long time since I have read more than 10 books so I guess I will never cease to surprise myself. Anyway, without a further ado, here are the books I read in December 2017:

Gossip & Drama

Other than reading a total of 11 books and taking a bunch of college finals, it snowed! Since snow does not normally come in the part of Texas I live in, I took a photo!


Isn't it beautiful?!

Also, Christmas was a fun time since I got books, a few bookish items to show my book love to the world, and a big cat blanket.

Next, in honor of not having to go to school, I have been binge watching "Will & Grace." It is so funny and can fill my day with joy in a heartbeat.

You have reached the end. Sorry for the rush; however, I have so many other posts I need to write and February is almost here. Since February is literally knocking on my door, I need to get this post up and running. Bye!

Thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoy!

Love,

  1. Hooray for reading 11 books!!! I can probably only do that during summer vacation. I can't even IMAGINE doing that during finals week! And whoa at the snow--definitely something I want to experience here too, but that's close to impossible where I live!

    1. Hi, Aimee! Thanks for taking the time to comment! Yes, it was shocking to finally round up all my completed books for December; however, it did not shock me enough to get me to write this sooner. I wish I could be #goals, but for now, I have given up on it. Also, the snow is WOAH! Now, that is literal goals! πŸ˜† I have only seen snow once so this was a momentous occasion. I HAD to take photos or I would have kicked myself later. Good luck on reading in February! I hope you accomplish your reading goals!

  2. Omg being a cake-eating-hermit crab sounds like SUCH a good life to me.πŸ˜‚ I hope the pressure of school/blogging/life doesn't totally eat you though. *sends cupcakes* And oh! How are you liking Game of Thrones?! I really enjoyed those books but they were pretty intense to get through.πŸ˜‚ I'm currently about to start reading One Of Us Is Lying and I'm procrastinating blogging a little bit too. Whooops.πŸ˜‚

    1. Hi, Cait! Thanks for stopping by and commenting! Sorry for not commenting sooner but my computer is in desperate need of a funeral. (If you know any good ways to perform a funeral for a computer, please tell me and everyone else.) Also, thanks for the cupcakes as cupcakes sound so good right now!πŸ˜„
      Yes, being a cake-eating hermit crab is my goal to life; however, I am made to go socialize with people in real life as if I am a "normal" cat/human. Game of Thrones is going great; however, it is SOOO INTIMIDATING! It is so large. The font is so small. And it has a lot of world building! 😫 Although I do like how the show and how much of a faster pace it has than the books, I am glad that these books have less sex scenes and nudity and more detail than the tv show.
      Have fun reading One of Is is Lying! I have heard so many great reviews for it; plus, I love Breakfast Club so adding a murder sounds fun. Maybe this book will give you more inspiration to write some posts!
      Have a great day and night!
