Quarterly Wrap Up (April-June 2017)

2017 is a very though year for me. My grandmother passed away last April and I’m not really into doing things after that. After the struggle of adjusting from my unemployed self to the stressful employed individual that I am now in the first quarter of the year. This second quarter was very challenging for many reasons that I would not specify except for what I mentioned earlier about my grandmother.

However, I feel like I’m figuring out my way into working and reading because I managed to read 8 books in three months compared to 4 books from the last three months. Β Although some of the books that I read are novellas and graphic novel, I feel so accomplished.

I’m excited to share them with you so let’s get into it!

Quarterly Wrap-up (January-March 2017)

Hi! I’ve been trying to blog for the whole week but to no success. I always end up sleeping in my bed whenever I got home. Thank goodness for weekend.

So here I am with a wrap-up for the books that I have read from January to March. I only read 4 books for 3 months. It’s quite shocking even in my part. And I’m behind my reading challenge in goodreads. On the other hand, I’m enjoying myself with reading and relaxing so I feel like it is not that bad that I’m not reading much lately.

And before I rumble other stuff in this wrap-up in an attempt to make it longer, I present to you the books that I finished in the past three months.

October Book Haul & Wrap-up

October is over. And it is time for another monthly book haul and wrap-up. I only read 3 books this month but I accumulated a lot of books. This month is a good book hoarding month but a not so good reading month because of my slump.

Let’s proceed to the wrap-up first! I read good books this month.

πŸŽƒ My True Love is Blue – πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ—πŸŒ‘

I find this book whimsical in its own way. The way art is incorporated and how the story revolves around grief and moving forward adds another touch to the plot as a whole. The book is short yet I feel like it offered different genre, from dark fiction to mystery. I like it and highly recommend it to those who love a quick read, loves art or just fascinated by how the painting was put into words.

πŸŽƒ The Girl in 6E – πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ‘πŸŒ‘

This book is not what I expected it to be. It did not meet my expectation, although the pace of the story is fast and there is something about the ending of every chapter that keeps you from reading the next chapter. Still, it’s a bit disappointing considering all the hype that it receives before.

πŸŽƒ First Heist – πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ‘

I enjoyed this novella of the Omar Zagouri Thriller. I’m more attached to the character in this novella rather than the novel that I read from previous months. The characters really showcased their personality in this novella.


And now for the books that I accumulated this month. I’ll be dividing this book into two, brand new books and second-hand books.
