A Very Late Reflection on 2019 // Reviewing My Reading, Blogging and Just General Life Things!!

2019 was a … wild year. And I genuinely have lots of feelings and thoughts about it.

I’m so behind on making all these 2019 wrap up / beginning of 2020 posts, but here’s the next one in this whole series! Today, I’m going to talk about my 2019 in terms of reading, blogging and life, and properly saying goodbye to 2019 in those regards, pretty much? Feeling all of those bittersweet feelings right now, honestly.

Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020: Checking In With My 2019 Resolutions and Making 2020 Resolutions!

New Year, New Decade … and Lots of New Goals!!

I mean, I’m just THAT person.

I’m a huge completion-ist, and I’ve always loved setting goals and creating task lists and just ticking them off, even though I can be sometimes, you know … not great with actually following through with them.

But regardless! Today’s post is going to be me checking in with my 2019 goals (which honestly, I forgot a lot of them) and talking about my 2020 goals. 2020 is going to be a year of a lot of changes and things happening for me, which is overwhelmingly scary but I’m also interested to see where the year goes.

I’m going to talk about each section in a little more detail (especially in the 2020 section), so let’s just get into the post already because this post is probably going to be nearly 3k words long, yikes!!

My Very Late Favourite Books of the Year ft. a Highly Predictable List And LOTS of Contemporary!!

Happy New Year and New Decade!!

Since 2019 has come to a close, it’s time to wrap up my year.

Let’s ignore the fact that this post is coming 5 days late.

I ended up taking a little unplanned break this month: I had full intentions to come back to blogging and draft all the year-end blog posts, but life really got me this month. I was just really busy and when I had time, I simply didn’t have the energy or the motivation to blog.

I think I’ve been in a little bit of a blogging slump in the last quarter of the year, and I didn’t really notice or acknowledge it? I’m kind of questioning a bunch of things and trying to ease back into it, but I do miss the interaction of it all and I do love blogging, I just need to re-spark that flame again.

Okay, enough about me – I’ll talk more about this in my December Wrap Up, but yeah!! On to my favourite books of the year.

December Reading Plans – A Super Short, Traditional TBR, Not Checking In With My November TBR + Me Rushing To Read All The Things Before 2020

The end of the year is coming up, which for most people, mean trying to rush read to beat their Goodreads goals.

… Which, uh, is not the case for me.

As of writing this, ya girl is still in a little bit of a reading funk, and I really want to get back into reading for fun, and not reading just for English A Level, if you know what I mean?

And this TBR post is the shortest TBR post I’ve ever written, and honestly, I’m proud of myself for not rambling on.

November ’19 Wrap Up // The One Where I Fell Into A Reading and Blogging Slump, Was Overwhelmed by School, and Found Amazing Music (ft. life updates galore and a pretty short wrap up??)

So, December is here and so am I!!

Because I’m back from my quick break, and (hopefully) ready to blog again!

I ended up taking a two week break because school was so overwhelming to the point where I felt that I couldn’t blog properly, and I was so burnt out that I just needed a break.

But in December, I’ll hopefully be consistent with all the end-of-year content I’m going to create (exciting), and December is gonna be a pretty great month especially since it’s getting chillier here in Thailand and the end of the year is coming! I can’t wait.

I Ramble On About Books, Blogging and Life (ft. my takes on “generic” blogging content and getting into deep stuff) aka the Liebster Award

Welcome back to volume I-don’t-even-know-what-number of me oversharing, again!

The lovely Caitlin @ Caitlin Althea tagged me back in September to do this post (I’m so sorry I haven’t replied to it, I’ll do it asap ❤ ), and since I suck and school is making me very tired and having less time to blog, I haven’t gotten around to it until now. Also, her questions were so interesting and fun that I simply couldn’t pass on doing it. Thank you for tagging me, Caitlin!

I’m going to you know, end this introduction now because this post is way too long (it’s now 2.4 thousand words geez), so we can actually get to the good part of this post!

November Reading Plans – A Short October TBR Wrap Up + An Extensive, Weird November TBR ft. lots of self-deprecating humor (But Hey, What’s New)

I am back (albeit very late) with all my November reading plans, and it is VERY weird.

Even for me.

Which is saying a lot.

I don’t want to say too much and will shut up now because this post is already 2.2k+ words long and I just need to stop talking, okay.
