alltheupdates

Hey there ✨

Uhm hi? I’m Louise and I run this blog, do you still remember me? Did you miss me? Did you even notice that I was gone? Is anyone even reading this? I hope you still remember me, I used to post reviews and book related content like any other book blogger, I ain’t special. I know.

Anyway, sorry for rambling I just don’t know how to start this post. I seriously don’t know how to blog anymore but I’ll try my best. So yessss, how are you? I hope you’re doing well! Read any good books lately? Yeah, that’s good!

I figured that it’s time to finally come back to my blog and try to salvage it? I abandoned it for so long and I feel like a bad mother leaving her child like that but I have my excuses reasons! Here’s a little update about my life and what went down the last few months, hoping that you’ll read it until the end!!

Anyways, let’s start with my reading update where I’ll tell you about how I barely got to read anything in the month of May.

Hey there! ✨

At this point, let’s just pretend that it isn’t already halfway through April and enjoy this March Wrap-up. (hehehe *winks*)

Welcome back to another Wrap-up post! Seriously the months are flying by, and yet the books are not being read. Sighs, March wasn’t the best reading month for me for various reasons. Like, you know… a certain musical may have distracted me from reading for the whole month.

Anyways, here’s my March 2017 in a nutshell or a post, or idk haha but you get it.

The Blogger Aesthetic Award

Hey there! ✨

It has been MONTHS since I did an Award post and that’s because I feel like most of the Awards/Tags are repetitive, don’t get me wrong I love reading these kind of posts because I feel like I know the blogger better after and I’m thankful for every time I get nominated but I just don’t feel like writing them most of the time.

Luckily, I was already nominated by two awesome bloggers—Katherine @ Fabled Haven and Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews—thank you so much for tagging me and sorry if it took forever. And of course let’s not forget the creator of this tag, Liam @ Hey Ashers!

Don’t forget to head over to their blogs and checkout their #Aesthetics plus Liam’s post includes some tips on how to make/build your own. Enough ramblings, let’s get started!

Review: Found

FOUND.png

Found: Letters on Life, Love, and GodFound: Letters on Life, Love, and God by Isa Garcia, Crae Achacoso (Illustrator)

Buy here / Amazon / Google Play Books

My Rating: ★★★★☆ (4/5)

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Isa Garcia believes that everybody deserves love letters. She wrote these letters in Found for you: the girl who has been feeling a bit lost; the girl who likes to run from pain; the girl who is ready to go; the girl who is a lot of things at one time or another. Isa knows that there are days when you would need to be reminded that you matter, you are not alone, and the world is a far better place with you in it.

In this book, may you find a friend who takes you as you are, a safe space for your secret hopes and fears, and the assurance that no matter where you are in your life right now, you will always be found.

my-review

There are days when you will grasp at straws for something that seems close to what is true. There are days when your voice will shake with the weight of uncertainty. There are days when you will feel like you aren’t enough. And there are days when the small cure to sadness will be the simple marriage of love and words. This book exists for those days. This book exists for you.

I’m so happy that I found this book, even though I don’t usually review these kind of books I’m thankful that I signed-up and was included in its blog tour. This book is a collection of letters about love, God, and life.

JAN2017.png

Heyyy there! ✨

January has already ended a few days ago and it seriously went by so fast. I can’t believe that we’re already done with the first month of 2017! So anyways, I decided to do a wrap-up plus monthly favorites post because I wanted to share to you all the books that I read, the things that I loved last month and just other important January notes. I’m planning to do this on a monthly basis for this year, and I hope I’ll be able to do so because last year I only published like 3 wrap-up posts.

I’m going to stop word-vomiting now, and let’s start of with my reading and blogging wrap-up:
