May Wrap Up – I Made It Out Alive (Somewhat) From IGCSE Season, Read A Lot of Books + I’m Back From Hiatus!

So, as you can tell from the title, I’m back from hiatus!

I’ve made it through most of my IGCSE exams (somewhat) alive, and … let’s not talk about them lmao. That period of my life is mostly over until results day is over.

Also, this month (and in the time I was away on hiatus) I reached 200 WordPress followers and 400 followers overall, which is awesome! It really blows my mind that 400 of you all are genuinely interested in reading my ramblings while I stumble through blogging. At the time of writing this, I’m close to 450 overall followers, which is pretty dope. I’ll probably do something for 500 overall followers, but I’m not sure. We’ll see.

February Wrap Up // Stressed 24/7, I Was Dying But Still Got A Lot of Reading Done??

Guess who’s probably way too late on posting her wrap-up?

And yes, I’m late again.

Overall, February was such a tiring month, and I am so so thankful that it was both the shortest month of the year and that it is over?

Also, Happy International Women’s Day to all my fellow females out there! I love you ❤️

I’m honestly pretty exhausted and don’t think there is much to say, so let’s get into the wrap-up. It’s going to be a very long one (it’s 3000+ words WHAT).

A Fairly Solid Reading Month aka My November Wrap Up I + I’m Going On Hiatus!

Reading-wise, November was just so much of a better reading month especially when you compare it to the mess that was October. I was disappointed by a few books, but found some really good ones, too. I do think this month went pretty well considering the fact that I’m preparing for mocks (which is a, um, trainwreck).

Also – I wanted to take some time to announce that I’ll officially be going on a mini-hiatus for about two weeks to focus on my IGCSE mocks, and I’ll be back after that with a lot of end-of-the-year posts and all that.

I mean A LOT.

I’ll go more into depth about my November in the life wrap up, but me coping, studying and dealing with mocks is not going well at all. Though I love (and will miss) blogging and talking about books a lot, I do need to prioritize school. I just need to take things one at a time right now. I’ll be back around mid-December if all goes to plan.

On the brighter side, I hit my Goodreads goal of 100 books. I’m trying to read more books that I did last year though (at 108 books) which I can definitely do.

Go me.

October Part 1 Wrap Up aka Another Disappointing Reading Month

New month, another mediocre reading month. I’m so disappointed in my reading month this month I kind of want to cry. This month was filled with three stars and the highest I gave any book this month was a four star which is disappointing? I’m feeling sad since I haven’t given any new book 5 stars since May (Always Never Yours).

I actually really wanted to read lots of contemporary and my favorite things since it was my birthday month, but it just ended up not happening. Instead, I followed the hype and I ended up reading a lot of spooky/mysterious books, which was an experience since thriller is not my absolute go-to genre. Here’s to a better reading month in November (even though I won’t have time to do anything since I’ll be studying).

September Wrap Up I – I’m Back + I Read 12 books

With school and everything and how I felt like my mental health was caving in a little from the busyness of the end of a school term, I decided to take a mini break from the blog. And now I’m back, ready to produce more and better content and to be a fantastic blogger. Lol good luck.

September has come and gone. It’s been a crazy month, and I read some really great books, some great rereads, books I’ve had on my tbr for a while and all that. I read 12 books (two of which are the first read and a reread of the same book in the month). Was that confusing? None of the books I had got below 3 stars, which is great. I’m so relieved that this was a solid reading month since after the fiasco of August I was genuinely terrified of getting into a reading slump.

Contemporary-A-Thon was such a blast and incredibly helpful in increasing the books I read. In that, I read 5 books (3 of which I read in the first 3 days). Also, I’m currently working on writing full reviews on all these books on Goodreads, since it’s mid-term break (honestly, it could not have come at a better time). I will link the ones that I have done in this post but follow me on my Goodreads to keep up to date with it.

It’s not a Taasia post without a self-promo plug.

Sorry not sorry.

On to the books, I read this month!

My worst reading month, like ever aka my August Reading Wrap Up

Of course, being me, this post is being written and published on the same day, early September.

August was a pretty ok reading month – nothing got above a four star, which I was disappointed about, and the sad thing that there were so many books I was genuinely excited to read. Let’s just move on, because I’m really sad. And now I’m worried I’m getting into a reading slump, help.
