March Reading Wrap Up – farewell to the longest month in existence

march wrap up

hello friends,

after a very successful march blogging month, i am sliding back into my non-blogging groove and NOT getting anything accomplished blogging-wise but i refuse to let it pull me down, so here we are, 2 weeks late, but a wrap up nonetheless.

March was a great month for me in certain ways. I made my grand blogging return (!!) with 8 posts published I can’t believe I actually managed that?? who is she?? i want her back and was on top of my blog hopping too.

I was able to read 12 books and actually enjoy some movies too we don’t talk about movies here because i don’t know how to be objective with movies. i just watch and go…..wow that made me smile for 0.45 seconds, 5 stars!! give this damn movie an emmy!!

On the other hand, march was the longest month of existence. and also the month the self-isolation really kicked in and this whole virus situation got really serious and since I don’t want to talk about depressing, scary real life things, let’s skip that and get straight to the wrap up.

February Wrap Up – a direct miss at an attempted fantasy month

feb wrap up

so see what happened was that, my best friend (hi little bee!! πŸ₯Ί) and i decided that we would make february the month of high-fantasies. and while the intention was completely there, it turned out to be the month of ignoringΒ fantasies bc as you will see, i,,,,,only read 2 fantasy books for the entire month.

granted i did manage to complete a 1200+ paged brandon sanderson, but AFTER that, i literally went on the biggest contemporary binge ever and i think that’s the best example of what comes of me trying to set a strict tbr.

RIP to my beautiful 10+ fantasy book TBR, we had hope but you didn’t come through.

I read a total of 12 books. 4 physical books πŸ“•, 4 e-books πŸ“±, & 4 audiobooks 🎧

featured image

hiiiiiiiii book friends!!

In my absolute fashion, I am 5 months late on publishing this post and i considered staying hidden in my hole of sadness and unproductivity and not post at all, but you see, even i am not that pathetic. and also ok, maybe I already had the graphics drawn and there was no point in wasting my work

i miss you all VERY VERY VERY much and i will have an entire post dedicated to my disappearance and hopefully some ways to stop that from happening again. but until then, know that I’ve missed you terribly and am so happy to be back!!

and now without anymore delay, i present to you, my…..

Much More than Top 10 Books of 2019 (and of course the Worst books too)

August Reading Wrap Up – a month filled with thrillers and audiobooks

august

this truly was the month of thrillers. i don’t even know why i read so many, but it just felt right to scare myself this month :’)

August was actually pretty eventful. We had our Eid celebration at the VERY beginning of the month (Eid Mubarak to all those who celebrate!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰) and then comes the invitations with family and friends (which, i always look forward to).

aside from that, i’m back on my crap watching cooking shows for hours on end ✌️ there’s nothing that gets your heart racing like burning a dish you spent hours making. truly relatable

i’ve also had somewhat of a breakthrough on my art and im so very happy with where it’s going and im here to share just SOME of what i’ve been busy creating so,,,,,

HELLO I DREW NEW DIVIDERS AND AN ACTUAL SIGN-OFF FOR MY BLOG, PLS TELL ME YOUR THOUGHTS ON THEM

but first, books,

July Reading Wrap Up – where i slumped for 2 weeks and binged for 2 weeks βœŒοΈ

wrap up

july was, in short, a disaster. it’s what happens when you place responsibility and expectations on me, basically no turn out 😁 yay thats fun.

i pretty much spent the ENTIRE first half of the month watching booktube and cooking shows and completely ignored reading and my art and really, this is what my peak existence looks like.

but aren’t we ALL GLAD the reading rushβ„’ happened bc that was the ONLY thing that saved my reading career and gave me content for this wrap up.

ALSO I WANT TO MENTION, i feel absolutely CHEATED that i read over 500 pages of Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, that mammoth of a book and i am NOT allowed to include it in my wrap up bc i still have 500 pages to go.

what kind of discrimination is this??? i want to talk to the manager

ahem, anyways.

me @ you

so i’ve made a few changes around on this little blog, to make it more ~fancy~Β but the most monumental part of all my changes is that i have changed my PROFILE PICTURE (for the FIRST TIME in 4 years!!!!!) idk why i’m making such a big deal out of this but its a big deal to me. it feels so WEIRD to have a new picture omg

hijab take 3

February Wrap Up – !!21 books!! + read-a-thon, & failing YARC?

month wrap up final

this wrap up is like my ‘contemporary-a-thon reads ft. a couple other books’ bc after contemporary-a-thon i basically had a burnout and didn’t touch books for like 5 days, it was an Experience and not a good one. 10/10 people wouldn’t recommend.

i jest though, because in reality, i read 21 BOOKS IN 28 DAYS!??!??!!?

W H A T

i am concerned for myself (and my social life) bc aside from the readathon, i didnt feel like i was pushing myself to read?? how does this make sense??

actually, the answer, as you will see, is ~*audiobooks*~

freaking life savers, those things.
