Monday Muse (12)

Hey fam! Happy Monday! Or something - are Mondays ever really happy? Let's change that! Today I'm sharing another Monday Muse post, which features my hobbies other than reading.

It has been a while since I posted one of these! I made some progress in my 17-18 Johanna Basford planner. This castle is so gorgeous!

I moved on to another garden-y one. This one took soooo long to finish. It has been slow-going, on the metro!

And now I'm starting a holiday one!

Speaking of holidays, I AM SO EXCITED FOR HOLIDAYS! November/December is my favorite time of year. I've been jamming to Christmas music since Thanksgiving ended.

I'm participating in #TBTBSanta for a fifth year! If you don't know what that is, see THIS post. It's an awesome Secret Santa book exchange. I'm just about finished with the package I'm sending to my recipient! Just need some more candy, methinks. =)

In bookish news, I recently discovered The Candle and the Flame by Nafiza Azad and I can't wait for it to publish! It sounds and looks amazing!

I also saw this fantastic preorder incentive on Twitter. I love the His Fair Assassins series, and I can't wait to read Courting Darkness. So it's such a bonus that the publisher is offering quite the preorder incentive! The first 300 preorders receive everything in the photo. Don't miss out! Click on the photo for more details.

And finally, here are some of my giveaways that are ending soon!

  1. Your coloring is so pretty. Glad you could keep going with it. Yay for Christmas music season. Your exchange gift looks fun.
    That is a great pre-order incentive.

    Have a good week, Alyssa!

  2. LOVE #TBTBSanta, and you have some serious wrapping skills! I'm sure your Santee will love everything! Also, The Candle and the Flame cover is so beautiful! I had to check it out on Goodreads ASAP and add it to the TBR list. Hope this week is off to a good start!

  3. Pink castle coloring! I love that :D So stunning, haha. <3 Love that you color a bunch :) Hugs. And eeeee. The Courting Darkness pre-order offer :D Wish it was international, but another precious person was not ordering the book for herself, so was, hopefully, able to get this swag too :) I hope you will love it the most love. <3


I love comments! I will always try and reply to your comments, as well as leave some comment love on your blog! :)

Also, this an award and tag free blog. While I am flattered that you would think of me, I really do not have the time to follow up. Thank you!
