Blog news:

Other than me being gone for two freaking months?? Well, I participated in the #BBCP – Book Blogger Creativity Project – and was featured over at Books and Prejudice. Thanks to Nori for putting that together, it was fun!

I did manage to miss my 4 year blogiversary while I was away. *sigh* Sorry I didn’t do anything special for it, guys! Happy blogiversary to meeee.

I also made a page for all of the authors I’ve met! I’ve been to 15 events and met 41 different authors. Awesome, right?! I’m about to add to it next week, I’m going to YALLfest! I’m SO freaking excited! (I posted some tips for it!)

Is anyone else going to YALLfest??

What I’ve been up to the past two months:

Oh goodness. Anything and everything, I suppose. There hasn’t been much exciting happening. The only new thing to report is I now have a new boyfriend! We’ve only officially been together a couple of weeks now, but I was close to him as friends before that. He’s pretty awesome :)

What else? Hmm. I didn’t do anything for Halloween sadly. I really missed celebrating the holiday this year :( I’ve had a bit of drama from a couple people in life, but other than that things are going smoothly. Some financial stress, but that’s the norm for me these days XD Nothing really to complain about. Life is good!

Side note: I am also down to 155 lbs – I’ve lost almost 30 lbs since April! Weeee! I’m able to get to the third notch in my belt now (when before I could barely do it at the first notch), and I can fit into some clothes that I haven’t worn in years. Makes me feel pretty good!

What’s in your mailbox, loverlies? Link me up!

  1. You got a lot of new stuff there. I can’t believe all the books you got at your library sale, what a bargain! In the shadow of blackbirds is amazing. I also loved A madness so discreet and the illustrated version of Harry Potter is just the best. Happy belated blogoversary Jessi! I missed having you around. I’m happy you have a new guy in your life, I wish you two all the best :) Also, great job with losing that weight!

  2. Weee, I love your posts, and am glad you’re back =) I’ve been slack about blogging lately, and about visiting others’ blogs, but am trying to be better. I’ve enjoyed your Harry Potter reviews though =) Great haul, and glad to hear that things are going well with you xoxox Can’t wait to hear all about YALLfest! And happy blogoversary! I think I just missed mine too — whoops! And BIG congrats about the weight loss too — what a great accomplishment!

  3. I debated about coming to this post. On the one hand, I love to revel in bookish loveliness. On the other hand, I was worried about becoming jealous as h-e-double-toothpicks. I was right!
