I kid you not, two weeks ago, at around 11 in the morning, I was updating my Goodreads and needed to change the ‘read’ date and on the dropdown menu, it read “April 1” and I went berserk. There is no way it’s already April. We’re already more than three months in.
Time never ceases to amaze me (as I’m sure anyone who knows me knows.) My friends and I have been in awe – freshman year of high school is already over. It seems like yesterday we were all nervous in that giddy-excited way, making our way through the gates, and seeing each other after summer break…
And we’re here. It’s summer again. Except I’m going to be a year older soon. And I feel myself trying to hold on to the memories, relish the moment but it’s like grasping for water: you have it for a moment, you feel the coolness on your skin, and just like that; it’s gone.
I write this a couple weeks after a terrorizing set of finals (you wouldn’t believe the relief) and my life just has all this empty space in it – it’s the perfect time for me to pick up a new project, or write some songs, or finish editing my draft… but I find myself unwilling to do something “productive.”
Because, after all, we all need a break sometimes don’t we? (aka, me trying to justify the fact that I haven’t posted since last year. Yes, I’m aware.)
…And I’m back with another series for y’all! I love analysing literature and it always seems to help my writing, too. I’ll be posting here every week and it’s basically just a category for my literature and lifestyle posts. Since it’s pride month, what better topic to discuss than diversity?
Are you looking for something to watch on TV that’s fun and entertaining? Well, look no further! Here’s my personal list of favourite TV shows and movie series for fans of YA books, for tweens and teens and for anyone who’s confused as to what to watch!
Between the ages of 12 and 14, there seem to be very few options for us tweenagers on Disney+ and Netflix. Everything seems to be too young and schmaltzy or too inappropriate! Today’s (rather long) post will be covering the main four genres I watch: Sitcoms, (my personal fave!) Mystery, Fantasy and Fiction (with magical realism).
Leigh Bardugo, you take that back! How could you break my heart so callously?! So, I finally did it. I finally read Six of Crows, and it is worth the hype and more. With the heart-warming found family trope, the refreshing new world, the fleshed-out realistic characters, it seems to be everything a reader can ask for, but there are a few flaws.
This review is the longest I have ever written, so please do take a quick look, but most importantly, what do you think of Six of Crows? Tell me in the comments, because I thought this was an amazing book.
Hey everyone! Recently I’ve been a lot more active on Goodreads and been reading a lot more, too. It astounds me every time I see someone so organized with their reading: setting themselves a monthly TBR, having read and reviewed a classic every month, their shelves so organized! Inspired, I put together an extra post (which will pop into your inboxes every once in a while,) and it will have some book reviews!
With the last Summer Diaries scheduled for the Sunday after the next, my summer will be done, just as quickly as it came! It seems only yesterday I was writing the first post.
