MARCH WRAP UP & A PERSONAL UPDATE

Hello, lovely people. I hope everyone is doing alright in these tough times. The last couple of weeks have been tough for me. My nan who I was very close to passed away 2 weeks ago. And then I fell sick myself. Suffice it to say, blogging has not been on the front of my mind

Thankfully, I now feel more like myself. So here I am.

Anyways, I just want you guys to know that it’s completely normal to not feel like yourself and want to run away from everything. You are not alone in this feeling.

My Song of the Month:

Note: I’m adding this new theme to my month wrap-up. Because music does help! And this song helped me cope. Both the original song and its cover.


March was a good reading month until the last week. That last week makes me want to erase this month from my memory.

Guys, I am behind on so many ARCs! I don’t have any excuses for slacking with my reading in July. But I’m a feeling a lot more motivated about my reading in August. Because this month will mark one year of my blogging journey! Any special ides on how I can make the anniversary special? I’m still clueless on what to do for the occassion.

I’ve had such a lousy June month! I’ve read the least number of books on June this year. All thanks to my new frenemy – Thesis. But I plan to read a lot more books and be more regular. Fingers crossed I can live up to this resolution!

Wrapping Up May’19

I know. I know. We’re halfway through June and I’m wrapping up May? I must be crazy!

Well, it’s all because the first half of June has been hectic for me. Eid holidays were followed up by last minute thesis work. It’s been crazy! And as a result I’ve been MIA and a lazy blogger, except for my scheduled posts. Thankfully, things are quieting down once again. I’m getting back my reading and blogging groove. So forgive me for summarizing my May activities so late!

April has been a splendid reading month for me. And I couldn’t be happier about it! I don’t know whether I’ll be able to read as much in May as Ramadan is upon us, and fasting slows my reading down. But I have quite a few ARCs pending and I hope to make progress with them. Happy May, you all!
