This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase upcoming posts and hauls from over the past week
I HAVE A LIFE AGAIN. :O It’s the school holidays and I have EVERYTHING planned out. Basically, I will do all the homework these days then just binge watch TV shows (such as Sherlock and Hannibal), sleep and eat and read. In other words, PARADISE. Sorry for the absence on the blog, I feel like I’ve been rather ‘out of it’ lately in terms of reviews and blog posts in general (especially at my co-blog); so I will be taking a blog hiatus on YA Midnight Reads and just read some books I want to read and review a little more for Finding Bliss in Books. This hiatus won’t be happening until mid-next month though.
In other news, yesterday I got to meet Jaz @ Fiction in Fiction in Fiction and her book-loving friend, Angel! They’re so sweet and we had a lovely time talking books and life over coffee and at Dymocks on Collins St.
Hi everyone! I’m afraid nothing extremely interesting happened to me the past week. Last weekend was amazing, with our recital in an actual theater with actual people buying actual tickets to come and see us (seriously, we did 3 shows and they were all sold out! Of course there were mostly parents of everyone involved but still). The high you get from being on stage and doing your thing (dancing, when it comes to me) is just amazing and I wish we got to do even more shows.
Furthermore, I discovered the paperback of Shadow & Bone was like three euros on TBD, so I decided to go ahead and buy the entire Grisha series because everyone’s fangirling about it. I also bought Aristotle & Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe because apparently it’s beautiful and that means I want it. Also, I’m really really looking forward to the holidays which basically means uninterrupted reading time and FREEDOM.
So I’m officially out of school now (: YAY! Haha, I’m still pretty busy with work though, they got me working full time now that it’s summer. It’s pretty hectic but my co-workers are awesome. I saw How To Train Your Dragon 2 with my best friend the other day and it was super cute. Toothless is adorable, okay?? [; Lol I personally love Pixar films, they definitely give me childhood feels all while being beautifully animated.
I’m doing this volunteering thing with my local library soon. It’s a reading buddy program for kids, so you get paired up with a kid for a week and you just read together. I’m excited for this as I’ll get to re-discover old favorites while also finding new great reads. I honestly don’t read much books other than YA and adult, so it’ll be nice to mix things up with middle grade and children’s books. Also, there’s just going to be adorable kids! c:
This is random but sometimes I just get hit by the urge to travel. Like there’s just so much to see, explore and discover. Ahhhhh. I want to talk travel with somebody!
