hello there, lovely people.
i am very much aware of my absence in the last month. however, due to finals, holidays, traveling and many other unexpectable events that made my usually boring life a little chaotic, i have negleted this personal space of mine.
but fear, you shall not! i am back and ready to rock this blog thing! and to start…a monthly wrap up!
(i haven’t done one of these in months. i truly missed it.)
i know you’re probably wondering: what has she done this month? has she read any great books? did she keep her resolutions?
well, stay tuned to find out.
(spoiler alert: the answer to the last two questions is…no)
i had my finals!
and yes, it was torture. i had to hibernate in my room during the holidays instead of celebrating the new year like other human beings. i’m honestly glad it’s over, although i fear this semester is harder.
i had a week off after my finals, and since my friend visited me, we decided to take a look at some cities in france! and i even spent a weekend in italy with my sister (which wasn’t the most fun, let’s keep it at that). i had a great time (also spent a lot of money *broke noises*) and made valuable memories, so i am glad!
books i read
unfortunately, january wasn’t my best month reading-wise. i’m already behind (but slowly catching up) on my goodreads challenge, and the books i read this month weren’t the best, to say the least. i was extremely disappointed because i expected more. oh well…
♡ ROMANCING THE DUKE (Castles Ever After #1), by tessa dare: (★★★☆☆) this was one of the most ridiculous yet addicting books i have ever come accross. it was not what i expected at all, and even though i am a little disappointed in it, it was kind of fun and had enjoyable moments.
♡ JOSH AND HAZEL’s GUIDE TO NOT DATING, by christina lauren: (★★☆☆☆) oh god…where do i start. i had decided to pick out this book because 1) it was saved in my audiobook collection, and 2) i read and loved THE UNHONEYMOONERS by the same authors. and i was very much disappointed. this started great but slowly turned into a mess. the first half of the book was fun; not what i expected but better. and then i don’t know how or when but it started being too stretched out and i felt like the ending was just skimmed through. for ¾ of the book, i felt like about 5 things happen, but in the last part 10 things do? like?? not only that, but the incoherent and excessive use of the word “crazy” bugged me. and let’s not talk about one of the sexual scenes where there was no use of protection and was only talked about AFTER the actual intercourse. truly awesome.
so yeah, i am so not satisfied with my reading this month. i do hope to read more quality books in february though.
(spoiler alert: i already read one book, and it’s one of my new faves, so yay!)
on the blog:
i have only posted once here, due to the circumstances mentioned above, BUT i am very satisfied with it, and i believe that’s the most important thing. i still hope to post more during february (hints for next posts: valentine’s day. romance. love).
goals for february 2020:
- read books out of my comfort zone.
- post more frequently on this blog.
- reduce my daily phone use.
how was your first month of 2020? have you read any good books? new experiences? (link me to your wrap-up if you have one and i’ll check it out!)
