First Book Haul of 2021

Technically, most of these books were purchased at the end of 2020. If you read my Bookish Resolutions for 2021, you may remember I talked about being more conscious and selective about the books I bought. For every book I buy, I have to get rid of one of my books. In this way, I'll … Continue reading First Book Haul of 2021

Books I’m Looking Forward to in 2021

I've mentioned before on my blog that I usually don't look forward to many new book releases, because I'm the type of reader who prefers reading books which stand the test of time. An overhyped book from 2021 may or may not be good, but a 2014 book which everyone still loves is probably at … Continue reading Books I’m Looking Forward to in 2021

Failing? Winterween 2021

Last week, from Jan. 4 to Jan. 10, I participated in the Winterween readathon this year. It's a challenge created by Oliviareadsalatte and Gabbyreads over on Youtube. The overall idea of the readathon is that just because it's winter and not Halloween does not mean we can't read some scary reads. Honestly, part of the … Continue reading Failing? Winterween 2021

My Pre-Semester Checklist for College

I can't believe winter vacation (寒假-han jia in Chinese) is over and this Monday I'm going back to college. Like last semester, this one will be entirely online. I'm taking six classes, including a lab (which I have no idea how they'll do online), and this might be the first semester I'm genuinely not looking … Continue reading My Pre-Semester Checklist for College

December 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Finally 2020 is over! I look forward to starting 2021 with a positive outlook and hope for the future. December was a good reading month for me, since I was off over school for most of the month and so I could dive a lot into reading. I read a total of 21 books last … Continue reading December 2020 Reading Wrap-up

2,000 Pages in 10 Hours Readathon

I'm currently free from school for the next few weeks, so last week I decided to attempt a 24-hour readathon, trying to read 6 books, equaling about 2,000 pages. I've seen a lot of videos on YouTube of this challenge and really wanted to try one myself. You can probably tell by my title that … Continue reading 2,000 Pages in 10 Hours Readathon

Book Review: The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly by Sun Mi Hwang

I happened upon this book on my recent rare visit to the library (since I never go anymore because of the disease which shall not be named), and I thought it looked adorable. Little did I know just how moving and beautiful it would be! Release: 2000 Page Count: 134 Format: Paperback Synopsis: Sprout is … Continue reading Book Review: The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly by Sun Mi Hwang

November 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I'm beginning to think I might stress-read. Despite being completely overwhelmed with school, I still managed to read 19 books this month. I mean...wow. That's not a massive amount for me in the summer, but in the school year when I'm working 8 hours a day on school? That seems like a lot. Anyway, I'm … Continue reading November 2020 Reading Wrap-up
