The Aesthete Blogger Award

It’s been a while since I did an award type post, now it’s thanks to Maria @ The Character Study, who was so kind to nominate me! Sorry, it took more than a month to do this, and thank you so much again for thinking of me, I really appreciate it! Now, let’s get to the post, shall we?

Mid Year Book Freakout Tag

When I had my Hungarian blog, I did this book tag every year, and I planned on doing this in June, but I was in a blogging slump. Then Caro @ bookcheshirecat and Maria @ The Character Study tagged me to do this, so of course I am going to do it! I don’t care if it’s already July, I’ll only talk about books I read in the first six months, so it should be fine. It was originally co-created by Earl Grey Books, you check out the video HERE. I took out the question about favourite new fictional crushes, as I don’t get crushes in books.

June wrap-up // I read a lot and I discovered a new favourite k-pop band

Long time no see, huh? Sorry for disappearing from this blog, but I wasn’t really feeling like blogging, more on the reasons why later. But the main thing is that now I’m here to share my June wrap-up! I read a lot, the most in 2021, so I’m happy about that. I’m not so glad that a huge chunk of my reads was just okay, not really marvellous. But that’s just how it is sometimes.

The New Releases Book Tag

I haven’t done a book tag in a while, so I was happy when Caro tagged me to do this! Check out her answers HERE! It actually came at the perfect time as I was thinking about how many 2021 releases I’ve read this year so far, and how many are left! Up until 2020, I never kept up with new releases, but then I felt like I wanted to at least try to read some new books. It’s still not a huge priority to me, as I am okay with reading backlist books, but reading with everyone else feels nice, you know?

May wrap-up // A hectic month full of BTS & k-dramas (but I read some books too)

May started peacefully and stress-free, in the first two weeks I managed to read six out of my eight books, and then I kind of hit a slump again. But now I have an “excuse”, I started working. Obviously, I don’t need an excuse to not read, but it feels comforting to blame something for the lack of reading, haha. And then the last few days of the month were even more anxiety-filled, as I got my first dose of Pfizer vaccine! I was so stressed, as I had a bad experience with medicine before, and ever since I’m fearful with medications. I had a mild fever for a short time, and my arm hurt a lot, but hopefully, that’s all. Now, let’s jump right into the wrap-up!

Recommending books by Asian authors

In honour of Asian Heritage Month, which takes place in May, I wanted to recommend some books by Asian authors! I am going to talk about ten books, five novels and five graphic novels, so whatever you’re in the mood for, I hope you’ll be able to find a book! I wanted to write this post for a while now, but I never had the chance, so that’s why it comes out so late. May’s been hectic for me, but more on that in my May wrap-up.

Reading It Queer tbr

I knew I wanted to participate in a Pride-themed read-a-thon in June, but the one I did last year (Pride-a-thon) isn’t going to be held this year, so I was afraid that there will be no month-long read-a-thons. Thankfully, a friend of mine showed me this one, Reading It Queer, which looks awesome! I prefer month-long read-a-thons, as that way I have enough time to finish my books. Reading It Queer is organised by Eloise Reads on Instagram, you can find the announcement post HERE!

Movie recommendations for springtime

I did a recommendation post for wintertime back in January, and now I’m bringing the spring version! As summer’s almost here (at least here, where I live), May’s the last month when I can share six movies that remind me of spring! I wanted to try out a new format, so instead of writing long sentences about why I think that particular film is perfect for this season, I’ll just share the summaries, a few keywords as to why watch it, and let the pictures speak for themselves.

April wrap-up // Aka Taylor Swift saved April, and I read a lot

So, April’s been kinda long and not really spring-like. The first and last few days were amazing, as the weather was nice and I got to walk in nature, but the rest was… forgettable. But hey, at least Taylor Swift blessed us with the rerecording of Fearless! It was (mostly) all I listened to. (I still do, as I’m writing these lines.) I don’t know about you, but books, music and TV shows are the only things that keep me going during this pandemic. Also! I participated in my first read-a-thon of the year! And I’m doing two in May, so wish me good luck, as I definitely need that. And I’m happy to tell you that I read not one, but two five-star books!

May read-a-thon tbrs

I don’t know about you, but I’m loving participating in read-a-thons lately! Sometimes they’re not for me, but nowadays I like having set tbrs for the month, it just helps me with my reading. In May, I’m going to partake in not one, but two read-a-thons! One is my absolute favourite, Asian read-a-thon by Cindy, and the other one is Armydathon, which is created by Kat. You check out both of the announcement videos HERE and HERE! So here are my tbrs for both! I’m hoping to finish all of the books because I’m feeling ambitious! Fingers crossed I can actually manage that. What also shows that I’m not kidding around this time, is the fact that I didn’t combine any of the challenges.
