october + november ’16
So, after nearly a month of disappearing, I think you deserve this: LIFE UPDATE.
As you may or may not have noticed, I was distracted from blogging until lately. Not only because I wasn’t in the mood for it, but also for the simple reason that ~LIFE~happened. I’m in a new school so I had to socialize, and, believe me, it was VERY tiring.
BUT on the other side, I’ve done a lot of things. I studied, read a lot of books, got sick several times, and, surprisingly, socialized.

My obsession with rainbow shelves hadn’t started until the end of November, but I STILL managed to rearrange my shelves by color, and I’m so pleased with the result. I mean, how could rainbow shelves be so damn beautiful and so aesthetically pleasing? *sigh*.
I still can’t believe I read the entire series in two weeks. This series just consumed my entire being. I was reading it anywhere and everywhere. I mean, what is studying, socializing, and eating next to the amazingly-sarcastic-and-funny Percy Jackson? Nothing. Okay, okay, I know I’m late to the party, but at least I’m part of the fandom now. Please welcome me.
This month I’ll try to be more active on Instagram, by joining xan at twirling pages and celine at celinereads monthly challenge, and I hope I’ll keep up with it, because it looks amazing, I actually never finished a challenge before. Oh well…
goals of the month:
- read whenever I find time
- be active on the blog and on instagram
how was your month? read any good books lately? tell me everything!
