1st Quarter Wrap Up Part 1 | The Good, The Bad, and The Stats (booktube)

Earlier in the week I posted my 1st Quarter 2021 Wrap Up here at the blog for Literary Weaponry. Some of you may know that I have also branched out into the world of bookish YouTube here in the new year. So, as well as the written post which I have linked, I’d like to present to you my 1st Quarter Wrap Up Part 1 | The Good, The Bad, and The Stats (booktube version).

March Wrap Up | BookTube Version

Earlier you may have seen me post my monthly wrap up in it’s usual written format. If you missed that or are interested in it you can find it here. However, I do post both here and on BookTube and if you sometimes enjoy your bookish content in the form of a chaotic, hyper active woman losing her train of thought every 45 seconds then boy do I have good news for you!

March Wrap up

Hello end of March! I can’t say that I mind March as a month. It is when the cold claws of winter finally start retracting and I can walk out my front door without having my breath whisked away by the frigid wind. But, I think it is really the promise of change that brings me some joy. Daffodils and crocus start popping up from the ground, tiny buds begin to grow on trees, and the grass begins to turn from its winter brown to a cheerful green once again. And, my favorite, the winter depression slowly starts to lift away.

January Wrap Up

Welcome to my January Wrap Up for 2021. This month we have seen the US capitol be stormed by racist, violent, fear mongering, hateful, terrorists. We have seen the worst president in US history leave the White House to be replaced by the oldest sitting US president and the first female, non white Vice President, the common people make fools of wealthy investors in the stock exchange via Game Stop, and (on a more positive note) some truly amazing book releases.

End of Year Wrap Up | 2020

Welcome to my End of Year Wrap up for 2020. I think that this was a tough year for pretty much everyone but I for one took solace in my books this year. Because of that it was my most successful reading year yet at 65 books! I found new to me authors that I loved, reread some old favorites, and overall just escaped into fictional worlds when the real world felt like it was trying to crush me. Let’s take a look back at 2020 here on Literary Weaponry.

November Wrap Up

Here we are, once again, at the end of a month in 2020 where you don’t know where the time went or how you got here. Hi, how are you? Are you doing alright? Are we all in a cycle of existential dread or is it just me? Sigh. Either way, I actually read books in November. Hooray! After spending a large chunk of the year in a reading slump I am surprised now when I actually manage to get some reading done.

May Wrap Up

I don’t know about you but this whole year has me out of whack. First the weather has been off since January, then COVID and the chaos and fear that has come with it, and now it is the end of May and I have no idea how we ended up here. I also went back to work this month after taking a leave of absence because of said COVID which certainly hasn’t helped.

March Wrap Up

I usually try to start these wrap ups off with some sort of lighthearted jabbering. This month…well, I don’t have it in me. March has seen many people’s lives turned completely upside down within the course of just a few short weeks. Schools closing, businesses shutting their doors, people losing their jobs in the millions (3 million new people applied for unemployment in the US in March alone), and our very way of life interrupted. This is a modern day plague.
