2019, a Reading Year in Review (The Good, The Bad and What I Want To Change) (aka, Just One Giant Ramble, Much Like This Title)

Hi everyone! I know this post might be a little late because I’ve seen so many people post their end-of-year-posts already, but I haven’t been doing great mentally for the past few weeks so I haven’t really been feeling like writing anything. But I’m doing a little better today so I thought I’d write something now!

Anyway, looking back 2019 has been a strange reading year. Despite me surpassing my reading goal (according Goodreads I’ve read a whopping 158 books last year) and reading quite a few books I like, I’d overall describe my reading this year as meh. Just, meh. It’s just that, despite the fact that there haven’t been a lot of books I actively disliked this year besides Seven Ways We Lie by Riley Redgate (okay, I usually like Riley Redgate but this was just Bad), Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston  (I don’t think robot-human romances are for me and I felt very bored), Hot Dog Girl by Jennifer Dugan (NO NO NO NO) and All the Feels by Danika Stone (Bad. Just, Bad.) there also haven’t really been a lot books that I absolutely fell head over heels in love with.Afbeeldingsresultaat voor disappointing gif Lees verder

Wrap-Up: June 2019 | The First One Since January

DSC00791

Hi everyone! As you might’ve noticed I haven’t really been blogging a lot lately. I just checked and I haven’t actually posted a wrap-up since January… yikes. It makes sense because I fell into a reading slump back in February and since then I haven’t really been on top of my reading game, which meant I didn’t feel like blogging, which kind of resulted in my disappearance. But luckily I’ve been reading again lately and I’ve also been excited about writing blog posts again so… I’m back? Hopefully?

ALSO, today I come bearing good news: I GRADUATED. I actually did it!!! I had my last finals in May and June and they were hard and I was incredibly stressed, but I managed to do it and I received some pretty good grades for it as well. It took me a little longer than it usually takes people (I’ve been doing this for 10 years AH) but I’m so incredibly happy that I’ve finally done it (SCREW YOU ANXIETY). Plus, June was also my birthday month so I’m a 22 year old now. And I still don’t feel like an adult at all.

Sadly, graduating for me doesn’t just mean not having to study anymore (yay) and finally getting back into a reading mood (also, yay), but it also means a lot of anxiety about my future and making tons of appointments with city hall people and just… it’s a Lot. But I’ll figure it out, and I’m trying to focus on being happy about all the positive aspects of it!
