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.

Rick Riordan book cover changes

I recently got into the whole Percy Jackson universe again, when I started reading Circe by Madeline Miller, which is also about Greek mythology. Ever since then, I have the urge to reread all of the series, but unfortunately, I don’t own every book. So the big reread has to wait, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t fanby (gender-neutral version of fangirl/fanboy) about his books! I’ve just seen Ashley’s video about cover changes, and I got inspired! She is a huge Riordan fan, so I’d recommend checking out her channel. So in this post, I’m going to talk about three of his series that got new covers.

Mythothon Round 4 tbr

The last time I participated in a month-long read-a-thon was in November, wow. Due to my reading slump, I didn’t feel like partaking in any, but now I think I want to get back to doing them. Well, not every month, but sometimes. I’ve seen Mythothon on Hannah’s Instagram page, you can check out her wonderful bullet journal spread HERE. The read-a-thon is created by Louise @ Foxes and Fairy Tales. It’s from April 1 to April 30, so I’m a bit late, but never mind. This round is based on the Arthurian legend, which I love. You don’t have to read books about that though! There are fourteen prompts in total and one group book. You can double up on prompts, and that’s certainly what I did, because I know I won’t read fourteen books in a month. Also, I won’t be reading the group book, as it’s not something that interests me now.

Taylor Swift Album Challenge Book Tag

In preparation for the Fearless rerecorded album coming out tomorrow, I decided to do a book tag about Taylor, and found this cool one by Rhonda @ Rhonda With A Book. I also thought why not make it even harder and choose my favourite song for each album? Because I love to cause myself a headache, apparently. What’s more, I am going to rate all albums on a scale of one to five. Yeah, I am crazy like that. And just a heads up: I might rate some albums lower, but that doesn’t’ mean it’s not good, it’s just my preference.

March wrap-up // The end of my reading slump and the first five-star book of the year

So I kinda disappeared from this blog for a while, eh? I wasn’t planning it, it just happened, but I really needed this little hiatus. On the other hand, I read nine books in March!! Who’s this person?? I’m so glad because I finally feel the urge to read, and it feels amazing, let me tell you. Moreover, I read my first five-star book at last! I also watched an amazing k-drama, and listened to a bunch of great songs, so let’s start because this is going to be long!

What BTS means to me

I’ve had this idea in my mind for a little while now, but I didn’t know if I wanted to share it, because it’s about a niche subject, and I wasn’t sure if any of you would be interested in it. I still don’t know if anyone will care about it, but I want to write it nonetheless. The last push was when I read Alexx’s blog post called Finding comfort and healing in BTS, which I really loved, and it inspired me to post my story.

February wrap-up // The slump continues, but at least I discovered k-dramas

I’m glad that February is the shortest month of the year… Twenty-eight days are perfectly enough, and I’m eagerly waiting for spring. Spring is my favourite season, I just love weather that is not cold but not too hot either. I am fond of the waking nature, everything about that season feels so special. February was my worst month reading-wise in years, I don’t even remember the last time I only read two books in a month, it was either 2015 or 2016. I don’t mind if I don’t read that many books quantity-wise, but the fact that I didn’t even feel like reading makes me sad.

Anti Tbr Tag

Today I’m going to do the Anti Tbr Tag, which was originally created by Nicole @ Nicole & Her Books on YouTube! I got tagged by Caro @ bookchesirecat a few days ago, and I’m so glad because I was out of blog post ideas, so she basically saved the day. This book tag is all about popular books you have no desire reading! I have a penchant for these kinds of posts, they’re just so interesting to read or watch! Not two people will have the same taste in books, so it’s unavoidable that someone will have zero interest in your favourite book, and that’s totally okay. Let’s begin!
