it’s my first wrap up on the blog and i’m already late…*sigh*
june has been a hectic month. there wasn’t a day where i had nothing to do. and as much as it felt good not getting bored, i wish i had a little time just to sLEEP. but other than that, i’m not complaining. a lot of great things happened this month!
that’s right! after all the pain, i’m (finally) done with high school. my graduation ceremony was just a few days ago, and i admit i felt a little nostalgic. it’s kind of sad, knowing that i made some great memories there, and that i’ll never be reunited with my high school best friends like we used to, but i’m really glad i’m not going back, because i REFUSE to go through what i went through again.
i got back to reading (and blogging)!
LITTLE BACK STORY: i used to have a blog a long time ago, but i couldn’t manage it because of all the work i had to do, so i had to delete it. i also -kinda- stopped reading books for two whole years.
it feels so so great reading books. for a while, i thought i’ll never be able to read a page again, but here i am! i’m so proud of myself for reading four books this month (two are short stories but shuuuush), and while i used to read more than that when i was younger, i’m slowly getting my good habit back, and i’m really really really happy about it.
books i read:
- WARCROSS, by marie lu: (★★★★★) i’ve had this book on my shelf for over a year and no one told me it’s that good! i couldn’t put this book down. it was so full of surprises and it was so well done that marie lu deserves a standing ovation. i can’t wait to see how the story evolves in the sequel.
- SOFT ON SOFT, by mina waheed: (★★☆☆☆) i don’t know what i expected going into this book, but the least i can say is that i was disappointed. the story was so inclusive and the characters were soft, but that’s it. nothing more…
- KEEPING HER SECRET, by sarah nicolas: (★☆☆☆☆) this book has HUGE camp rock vibes, except nothing happens. it had great potential, but that’s about it.
so yeah, the month started out great, but the last two books were huge disappointments. but that’s okay, i still have so many books to read!
on the blog:
- REVIEW: red, white & royal blue, by casey mcquiston

i’m hopping to post more during this month, and i have some ideas, but we’ll see!
