january recap (Fiverr, bookstagram and fave reads)


Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! I am so shocked by how fast January went. I feel like the whole year will disappear if I blink!

January was a crazy-fast month. It was fun, sometimes stressful and an exciting start to 2019! I am so excited about February and the rest of the year to come!

Also, guys, I am so sorry about not being consistent with blogging. I always plan to write and post my posts on certain days but something always keeps me away from it! So yeah I am sorry I haven’t been blogging as frequently. Life really has been crazy (I feel like I always say that!) 

Anyways, let’s get started!

books I want to read

The Austen Escape by Katherine ReaySpinning Silver by Naomi NovikCinder by Marissa MeyerThe Brontë Plot by Katherine ReayLizzy and Jane by Katherine ReayManga Classics by Stacy King
The Selection by Kiera CassDarius the Great Is Not Okay by Adib KhorramAnne of Green Gables by L.M. MontgomeryThe Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey by Trenton Lee StewartThe Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee StewartThe Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma by Trenton Lee Stewart
The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee StewartMy Lady Jane by Cynthia HandLove & War by Melissa de la CruzFront Desk by Kelly YangDear Mr. Knightley by Katherine ReayFull Cicada Moon by Marilyn Hilton
I feel like I read more but yeah!
 My favorite book I read I think is Darius The great is Not okay.
*sobbing* It was such a sweet relatable book! I am definitely going to review it soon! (when I am done crying in the corner)
I am trying to read 150 books this year and according to Goodreads I am five books ahead of schedule, and I think that’s good…?
Last month I accomplished two things I really wanted to do.
One I started a bookstagram! Yes! I have been wanting to do this ever since I started book blogging and it is so much fun! If you have a bookstagram I would love if you follow me! @elysianartiste
I also have started a fiverr!
Fiverr is an online marketplace for freelance services. I have posted some blog design gigs that I would love for you to purchase. And for a limited time, anyone who signs up to buy on Fiverr, clicking this affiliate link will get 20% off there first purchase! (this will give a small commission to me which I would really appreciate!) I would love if you buy one of my gigs!

I would really appreciate if you support me on both of those platforms!

  1. I’m so happy to hear January was a good month for you! I hope February will be just as good, if not better 🙂 Auditioning for Matilda the Musical sounds so exciting! I’ve never seen the musical, but the movie is so cute and fun, I’m sure the musical is too 🙂
    Also I spotted The Mysterious Benedict Society and!! Omg that really brought me back to my childhood haha. I loved those books so much!

  2. Love this, Ava! I’ve also set a goal on goodreads, I think I’m behind, I’ll accomplish it eventually 😂 Bookstagram sounds epic, I’m tempted to set up my own!

  3. It seems like January was a pretty good reading month! A lot of Charlotte Bronte/Jane Austen, I see. I’m super excited to read Darius the Great – I’m happy you enjoyed it so much!
    Also, yes for scrunchies. I’m absolutely obsessed with them and wish I had picked up more when I was in the US last December. They’re a lot more expensive here, and I really wanted to find more of the ones with a scarf. They’re so pretty and look very good now that my hair is longer.
    Wishing you a great February! ✨
