In my last entry for Stuff I’ve Been Reading Lately, I remember rambling about how hard it is for me to finish reading a book these days, so I ended up reading a bunch of mangas. I also mentioned a list of books and mangas that I planned on reading during the holiday vacation. Well, here I am, three months later, and I haven’t really read any of the books I’ve listed.

Do you ever get stuck in that phase where you just don’t get any reading done? It happens a lot to me these days because there are a lot of other things to focus on aside from reading. Like, recently we have a lot of projects coming our way at work or some personal issues to attend to or Netflix. I think majority of the reason why I couldn’t get some reading done is because I’ve been watching Friends recently and I wanted to finish all 10 seasons so bad. With that, I haven’t really made any progress in reading Timeline by Michael Crichton, but I did read a bunch of manga. Continue reading

Have you ever experienced trying out something out of your comfort zone or trying out something you always thought you disliked? When it comes to reading, there are still a lot of genres I have yet to try. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while or if you know me personally, you already know that romance is my favorite genre because I grew up reading Nicholas Sparks and though I also find middle-grade books and books with a mix of YA fantasy + dystopian quite exciting reads because of their otherwise fast-paced plot and storyline, I haven’t read much books out of these genres.

Reading has always helped me get rid of all of my stresses — well, at least for the time being — and I am so happy that I am finally reading consistently these past couple of months. Though I am still not reading as many books a month as I used to back when I was still a student, at least I get to finish a few books a month and I think that’s already as much reading as I can get these days.

Since I recently moved here from Tumblr, I decided to launch a new series as an opening entry in WordPress. I’m never really good at introductions, may it be in print or in person, so let me just start with this:

I was at a local secondhand bookshop one Sunday morning with my cousin and while we were browsing through the shelves, I came across this book by Nick Hornby which gave me an amazing idea for my blog: A new series. It’s been a while since I last introduced a new series here, and I haven’t really been consistent either. So, I hope this one works.
