Most of All You || gave me all the feels I expected

I've read almost all of Mia Sheridan's books but because I don't really keep track of releases (other than sequels), I didn't know this came out until I saw a bookstagram photo of it. I had to get it immediately! First of all, I should mention that this book has A LOT of tragedy in it. Here are a list of TWs that come to mind immediately[...]

Music Habits Tag

Today, it's very hard to find anyone who does not listen to music every single day. Or at least on a regular basis. It doesn't matter what type of music. I believe that music brings people together, and it's true! If you found someone with music tastes similar to yours, you'd more likely become good friends than not. I did the Reading Habits Tag last month and on impulse, looked for a music habits tag but didn't find one. And you know what they say—if what you want doesn't exist, make it yourself. Whether that's a film, a book or even a blog meme. So here we are, with my first ever original tag!

One of Us is Lying || a murder mystery in YA = brilliant

I've seen nothing but good things about this book EVERYWHERE. And it sounded so interesting so I picked it up. I'll be honest, I almost DNFed 20% into the book. It was SO SLOW and boring and I just couldn't muster up the interest to continue reading. But when I mentioned that I'm reading it, quite a few people online told me how much they loved it and so I gave it another try. I pushed through. I'm happy to say that after 30% I was INTO IT and read the rest in one sitting. It was utterly captivating.

Books I really liked but hardly remember // how rude, right??

books I really liked but hardly remember

First, let's establish the fact that MY MEMORY SUCKS. I literally don't remember what I had for dinner last night. I also have a suspicion that things in my brain evaporate when I sleep because how else can I explain that I don't remember anything I studied last night for this morning's test?? I need to remember to pass, brain! STOP TRASHING STUFF[...]

2017 End of Year Survey // the ultimate scoop of my reading in one place

I wasn't planning on doing a "wrap-up" post for 2017—bookwise or not but I saw this End of Year Survey being done by other bloggers and had to do it. It sounds pretty fun! The End of Year Survey is hosted by The Perpetual Page Turner, who I have found through this survey and is pretty amazing. I know I'm pretty late in doing this but I only got the time and mood now. *shrug*

Eliza and Her Monsters || hands down one of my favourites of 2017

OKAY SO THIS BOOK WAS ADORABLE AND AMAZING. The Plot We have Eliza who's an artist and is the creator of Monstrous Sea, a comic series online. She goes by a pseudonym so no one in her real life knows. Not even her family. And Monstrous Sea is REALLY popular so if her identity does get out, it'll blow up.  So while Eliza continues to navigate her sorta lonely life at home and school[...]

December 2017 bullet journal flip-through

december 2017 bujo

Hey everyone! This is the FIRST post I'm writing after my finals are over (I scheduled the previous ones) and wow it feels so nice to not have the "you have to study!" voice in my brain. Since my bullet journalling time was one of my "break" times from studying, I actually put in effort to pretty up the spreads. I usually don't because I'm running low on time with classes and assignments. I am so proud of my bullet journal, you have no idea.

10 reasons why remembering books is crucial for us book lovers

I don't know about you but I have a hard time remembering books. Names, authors, characters, covers and the whole plot. Give me two months and my current read will be reduced to three lines in my brain's storage space.* And I hate this. There are so many situations in which I'm left mumbling because I DON'T REMEMBER. And I'll be honest, it's a little embarrassing. There's ONE thing I love to do—reading. I have read quite a number of books as well. And I'm not amused when it all becomes mush in my brain[...]

Autoboyography || hi I’m drowning in adorable-ness

Is adorable-ness a word? I guess not. Meh, I made it up, just go with it. OKAY SO. This book was hella adorable and I really really liked it. The Plot We have Tanner, in the closet (according to society) but open to his family, who completely accept him. Set in Utah, a society consisting mostly of Mormons, Autoboyography is the story of two completely adorable boys exploring their feelings for each other.

10 books I meant to read in 2017 but didn’t

My TBR is an ever-growing mountain, okay? I am bound to miss out on reading books for a long time. And this is the case for many bookworms, which is why this week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is VERY easy to do. Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme hosted until now by The Broke and The Bookish but[...]

January 2018 bullet journal setup

I've seen so many new people setting up bullet journals newly this year and that makes me so happy! The bullet journal community has been growing steadily, with a huge rise in bullet journalers these past two years. I love it. I love all the planning going around.

How to be a Bawse || Start off 2018 on the right foot

We make resolutions and goals every year. They might be unrealistic, you might not reach those goals by the end of the year, but what matters is TRYING. I read How to be a Bawse by Lilly Singh (popularly known as Superwoman, her YouTube stage name) last month and I LOVED IT[...]

10 amazing authors I was introduced to in 2017

I read a lot of books in 2017. Over 200. Goodreads says my average rating is 3.4 but that does not mean I didn't read AMAZING books, just that everything else paled in comparison to those brilliant ones. This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is top 10 new-to-me authors I read in 2017. Btw, the meme has been hosted by The Broke and The Bookish until now but from NEXT WEEK they're handing over to The Artsy Reader Girl. So take note, TTT-ers[...]

2018 blogging goals

Before last year, I never made resolutions. Seriously. I'm a person who makes plans as opportunities come and just go with the flow. I don't make long-term goals because I'm not sure if I'll be able to keep them up with life's changes. I do make some goals monthly but not yearly. But last year I saw everyone in the blogging world make resolutions and felt like making some too. I did and I never saw that list again. But I just checked back and I did manage to follow-through with some goals, not all. So why am I making resolutions again this year, you ask?[...]
