January turned out to be a better reading month for me than December did. I was able to read five books and really enjoyed all of them. In my January Reading Plans post, I mentioned that I’ve been undergoing quite a number of lab tests for my medical condition. I now got the result of the lab test and it’s all good. I still need to have it checked and monitored every 6 months, though, just to make sure that there are no other problems relating to it. I’m so happy and grateful that it all turned out okay!
Anyways, in February, I plan to read two romance books to celebrate the month of love. I’ve already started with the first one which is The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang and I am about 60 pages in. I can’t say much about it yet, but I’m really enjoying it so far. I know haven’t completed my reading plans in the previous months, but I would still like to make a TBR. Continue reading →
I know this is a week too late, but I’ve been trying to write this ever since January 1st and I just can’t seem to find the right words to write this blog post. I have a couple of resolutions in mind and have probably told a couple of my bookish friends about it. A couple of days ago, my friend Angele @ Angele Reads Books tagged me to do The New Year’s Resolution Reading Challenge! Just like her, it’s my first book tag here on my blog and I’ve decided to do it along with my personal bookish resolutions. Continue reading →
December was a great month for relaxing and just catching up with family and friends. I’ve been quite busy scheduling appointments with my doctor and/or online consultation requests because of a medical condition that I found out about myself in 2019. I had to schedule another lab test to follow my doctor’s advise to monitor the condition every six months. Apparently, my lab result didn’t turn out good, so I needed to undergo another test for second opinion. Anyways, given all that, I still had a great time during the days when I get to rest. I’ve watched a lot of movies, series, and anime! ♡
With all that has happened in the past couple of weeks of December, I’ve only read two books, so I am planning on reading as much as I can this month and have included four books in this list:
My True Love Gave To Me (anthology) edited by Stephanie Perkins
The Fifth Season (Broken Earth Trilogy, #1) by N.K. Jemisin
The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams
The Guest List by Lucy Foley
Hopefully, I can get to all these in this month. If not, I can always carry them over for next month. No need to pressure myself into reading so many books because one of my 2021 reading resolutions is to take my time when it comes to reading as I’d love to enjoy every minute of the world that I am in instead of reading faster and not being able to devour every moment.
2020 was not easy for all of us, especially with the whole world on lockdown or quarantine and are all so ready to leave this year behind and hope the best for 2021. Yet I still couldn’t bring myself to believe that we’re already down to the last month of the year!
So now I’m down to my last TBR for 2020. Honestly, I admit that may be quite ambitious with my TBR this month given that I was only able to finish a book or two in the previous months (and some manga, comics, or poem books which are really short), but our office is usually closed during the holidays, so we are on mandatory day for almost two weeks! Of course, since the virus is still out there, I plan on spending most of the free time I have reading. As you all know, despite being able to put a dent on my physical TBR this year, I also accumulated A LOT of books so it feels like I didn’t put a dent at all. Haha Continue reading →
I’ve been busy with work the past couple of months and I honestly feel like I’m burnt out from all of my tasks. Sometimes, I feel like I need a getaway, just somewhere peaceful and cozy where I can just spend a day or two not thinking about anything but this virus — this pandemic — is just so scary. Maybe that’s the reason why I feel restless and always sleepy these days, hence, I haven’t been reading as productively as I have been during the start of the quarantine, but in October, I was able to finish two novels which I am really happy about. ♡ Continue reading →
