Updates

As you can probably tell I don’t have any reviews or anything that kind of counts as semi-interesting content ready at the moment, so here’s some rambles about what I’ve been doing lately instead❤︎ (Other than messing about and changing my blog theme a bit anyway)                Duke of my Heart (A Season for Scandal, #1) by Kelly Bowen – Initially I’d wanted to read the third one in this […]

Disappearing acts

Disappearing acts

How are blog entries supposed to go after disappearing for months on end? Filled with many excuses like mine usually are, I guess, oh well. Excuses: work, uni, sleep. My bad, sorry lol Also, apologies again because I think this post is turning a little bit into a pity party. Whoops. I’ve been in a bit of a slump lately; a reading slump, a gaming slump, a writing slump, an ‘everything takes too much effort […]

Been a while

Been a while

Whoops! I kind of disappeared off the face of the earth for a while there. Sorry about that lol Reasons(/excuses) are as follows: Internet outage for multiple days I had no idea what to do with myself at all. Do I read? Do I translate? Do I do uni stuff? None of it sounded appealing, and I was so bored (´△`)↓ I would have preferred going to work. Uni stuff Some assignments crept up on me […]

Plans for August

Plans for August

I don’t actually have any blog posts queued at the moment, which is a little bit annoying because I rely on my queued posts oops. I lie, barely anything is ever queued. But, anyway, I figured that (since I haven’t finished a book or an otome game in a while) I’d ramble on about my TBR and the games I want to play in the hopes that I actually end up doing so lol Here […]

July Wrap Up

July Wrap Up

It feels a little odd writing this since I haven’t even been blogging for a full month yet, but oh well. So, anyway, this month’s been fun and has shown me how bad I am at managing my time lol I’ve finally started reading novels again after months of mostly reading manga, though the occasional series does still sneak its way in there. I started reviewing books again rather than just finishing them and moving […]

I Love Fandom

I Love Fandom

I kinda wanna talk about fandom for a bit, so: I don’t write fic anymore (when will my writing skills come home from the war?), I can’t draw worth a damn, and beautiful meta or theories about characters or shows seem to be beyond me. But I greatly admire the people who do, especially those that can do it consistently. I’ve always been pretty scared about involving myself in fandom too much; I wrote a fic […]

Do comics really count?

Do comics really count?

Recently I finished my Goodreads Challenge goal of reading 100 books. It’s not as great as it sounds lol It’s mostly manga which brings me to what this post is about. Ages back, back when I was far more active in booklr, I found a post where someone was complaining about people who ‘only read comics’ and how ‘comics/manga shouldn’t count for Goodreads Challenges’ because it’s mostly images. I can kind of half-understand where they’re […]

Not to be a hipster, but…

Not to be a hipster, but…

I have to admit before I start that there are a lot of popular books I like; I can quite easily join in the hype about a new announcement for a book in a series or a book that’s getting a lot of attention for its representation, etc, etc. I’m not denying that at all. I buy a lot of books based on hype. Yeah, yeah, I know. Everyone’s reading the same books these days, everyone’s […]
