Where Art Thou JBelkBooks?? | May Wrap-Up

bi-weekly-wrap-up-19

Random Quote of the Day: “If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.” – Frank A. Clark

Hello sunshines! 🔆 I know, I know, I know….I have disappeared from the blogosphere this past month and it has broken my heart. I actually don’t have many bookish or art related things to update you on so if you are here for that then I am extremely sorry. However, my unexplained hiatus will all be addressed now…

WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

Image result for slumped gifWell, I’ve been at school. Yes, you’ve guessed it. School has taken over my LIFE this past month and I can officially say that this has been the worst year of my high school education. The worst as in: I can never catch a break.

As you all know I am an International Baccaleurette student meaning that I am required to test out of my Standard Level classes. With that being said, I took my IB test for Math Studies earlier this month. Now, I thought all the stress would be relieved until June because that’s when finals are, but I was truly mistaken.

Week after week I was given new projects, tests, quizzes, assignments...you name it. There was never a time where I could sit down and blog like I am now. DISCLAIMER: I can only blog now since I have a 4-day weekend and even then I still have many assignments to catch up on.

SO WHAT NOW?

I officially have about a week and half left of school, so until then I’ll be on a mini-hiatus. I’m going to try and pre-schedule a few posts but don’t hold onto my word on this one.

Towards mid-June I will be back and active in the blogosphere so I am really excited for that. I’ve been feeling really distant from social media and WP so getting back into routine will be refreshing. My blog stats have been at its’ all time low this past month so I’m ready for new comments and new interactions!

With that being said I did reach over 800 followers on Twitter (I don’t know how) this past month so that’s pretty awesome. I do wish to be more active on IG as well, so stay tuned for that. I have a ton of emails to catch up on as well so I apologize if you’ve contacted me via email and I haven’t responded!

IF YOU HAVE ANY POSTS THAT YOU’D LIKE ME TO READ/COMMENT LINK THEM DOWN BELOW!!! It would be impossible for me to go through everyone’s posts and read them, but if have posted something that you are proud of, let me know!!

As always, I miss you guys so much and again, I apologize for my sudden disappearance. I can’t wait to be officially back, my friends!! (:

How was your April and/or May? Any special plans this upcoming June? Did you read anything awesome this month?

Thanks for reading & I’ll see you next time…

Captivating Covers [#28]

bi-weekly-wrap-up-10

Random Quote of the Day: “The deeper sorrow carves into your being the more joy you can contain.” – Kahlil Gibran

Hello sunshines! 🔆 Ya know, it really seems as if so many 2017 releases have amazing covers!! Yay, 2017! With that being said, today I am sharing a not-yet released novel, but I guess that just adds to the anticipation!! 😀

Captivating Covers is a meme created by me — @JBelkBooks. Every week or so, I share a cover of a novel that I find to be Captivating. It doesn’t have to be one you’ve read, just one that you enjoy! You can add your own twist to it, but I like to include the book synopsis & book details. So, I created this meme to share my findings with you all! 📚

Title: Bad Romance

Author: Heather Demetrios

Genre: Young-Adult, Contemporary

Published: June 13th, 2017

Guys I’m telling you, every time I look at this cover I am continuously in awe. The cover reflects the synopsis of the novel finely and I enjoy how almost…”raw” it looks? It’s so simple yet very complex in meaning and I love that about this cover. I’ve personally never seen a cover like so, so that’s also a plus! 🌱🌾

⬇️Want to read the synopsis? Check it out below!⬇️

Feature with Followers [#32]

bi-weekly-wrap-up-14

Random Quote of the Day: We have, I fear, confused power with greatness.” – Stewart L. Udall 

Hello sunshines!! 🔆 I am so incredibly excited to be sharing today’s post with you! It’s been MONTHS since I’ve posted a Feature with Followers, mostly because I didn’t have time to choose and chat with you guys. However, I am BACK with our first FWF of 2017!

A few things have changed — I am no longer striving to share a Follower every Sunday, but instead just one follower every month. I found that trying to find & interview someone every week was taking a lot of time that I didn’t have, and I didn’t want to refrain from posting FWF all together. But besides that, this is the only new change! (:

For those of you that are new to JBelkBooks, Feature with Followers is a meme created by JBelkBooks (me) in which I will be showcasing one of my AMAZING followers. This gives me an opportunity to really get to know them and give them a chance to get their blogs out there in the community. As always, FWF is open for any bloggers to take part in, so if you are interested in spreading love & kindness for your followers, be sure to try FWF out! (:
