May | BOOK HAUL

Another month, another two books added to my collection. Nearly every day, I browse the web for some good book deals or new releases so I'm glad I can keep myself from buying each time. I can't wait until it's safe enough for a trip to the local bookstore and spend some money there! I've… Continue reading May | BOOK HAUL

May | MONTHLY WRAP-UP

It genuinely feels like May never existed. I read a decent number of books but I wasn't entirely into it, mostly worrying about things in the world and in the future. One fun thing is that I started reading ARCs! I have some fun ARC reviews planned in the next few months for books I've… Continue reading May | MONTHLY WRAP-UP

Little Fires Everywhere | BOOK REVIEW

With Asian Heritage Month come many great opportunities to pick up some amazing books. It's my first time participating in Asian Readathon (or any readathon, really) and I decided to also take part in the Little Fires Everywhere Readalong and Watchalong! I see this as a way to discover new talented writers as well as diversify my bookshelf (which is something that really needed to be done).

April | BOOK HAUL

Luckily for my poor wallet (being a book-loving student is not cheap) I only bought two books this month! Well, I also pre-ordered another one but I tend to forget about that until I get it. The two books I did get aren't exactly what I'd normally buy, which makes it all the more exciting!… Continue reading April | BOOK HAUL

April | MONTHLY WRAP-UP

I honestly feel like I've barely read this month even though I read just as much as I did in March. It could be that the four classics I read gave me more of a school vibe rather than a reading vibe. Nevertheless, April was a decent month for me despite the rather sad circumstances… Continue reading April | MONTHLY WRAP-UP
