March Wrap Up & April TBR // There… and Back Again


Okay, remember the huge slump I had since December? Apparently, re-reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone made the slump go away, because I finished 2 books after that.

But based on the title, you might’ve guessed that something happened. Yep, I stupidly decided to watch K-drama and it consumes me that it put me right back into the slump.

October Wrap Up and November TBR
Aimal @ Bookshelves and Paperbacks is hosting A Very Arc-ish readathon, which is basically a readathon to read some ARCs we own. I really hope this readathon will motivate me to get out of my reading slump, read, and write some reviews! Here are some e-ARCs that I plan to read during the readathon.

  1. GEEKERELLA by Ashley Poston
  2. NOTEWORTHY by Riley Redgate
  4. ULTIMATUM by K.M Walton

October Wrap Up and November TBR


The most important thing happening this month is mid-term exams. For some reason, the weeks leading up to it was very stressful. Every single subjects keep gave us homeworks, and it’s all due in the same week! And then the exam came and they were harder than we thought. We were all SHOOK. I studied until 1, at one point (thanks, organic chemistry) even 3 a.m. And then the day after the last exam, we have to go mangrove planting. I was scared about going into murky water and plant something, but after I got in, I actually really enjoyed it! As the result though, I got sick and can’t read much. Oh, and I also chopped off my hair to chin length, something I haven’t done since I was a kid. So here’s to trying new things and experiences!🙏.

I also do some reorganization on my blog, like editing and deleting old post (the super old ones from ye olden days). I might do a round up on all my favorite features and discussions after I finished my reorganization✨.


This month is still a little quiet on this blog. Not many post and no review. Most of the post I write are discussions or features: I asked about your perspective while reading, how I use my bullet journal, aesthetics of my favorite 2016 books, and women that help shape Indonesia for women’s history month. For Top 5 Wednesday, I talked about fictional jobs I want to have and future classics. I also did The Mid-Autumn Festival tag, even though we don’t have autumn in my country.

    I’ve been pretty absent on blogs lately (thanks to the soul crushing schoolwork I have), but I am so happy to get back to reading some posts again lately. So I’ve never seen a K drama, but I definitely understand a show consuming your life. I don’t know how you managed to read and write so much at the same time. You must be some sort of superhuman. Anyway, I hope you have a happy April now that midterms are done and over with!

    Yay for being out of your reading slump! I loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I really am interested in Done Dirt Cheap, too. I also have Geekerella and The Inconceivable Life of Quinn on my TBR for the Very Arc-ish Readathon– here’s hoping we both enjoy them! And ah, Noteworthy is my favorite read of this year so far. IT’S SO GOOD. I hope you have a great April! ❤
