It’s been a week since I last posted anything in this blog. I was so engrossed with The Reading Rush that I did not even stop and sit down to blog. Also, my work week has been busy lately since we have a lot to do so I only managed to read during the night. I also did not read on Sunday so that makes my reading days a day shorter. Plus, Taylor Swift drops a new album so I have to drop everything, reading included, to listen to Folklore.
But before I proceed with my wrap-up, I want to talk about the issues going around for this round of The Reading Rush. It was quite disappointing how insensitive the hosts are with what was happening during this time. I think the first issue is the reading challenge to read outside the house, which most of us can’t do because of the pandemic. The hosts resolved that by saying that it is up to us to interpret that challenge, like reading a book with the word OUTSIDE on the title or whatsoever though some still think that they did not even consider what was happening. However, what truly disappoints me is the issue with regards to the book group, which holds a very powerful topic with regards to raising awareness with the black community. I just hope that they will reflect on their actions and learn from it. They have such a powerful voice as an influencer in the book community and I hope they will use it right.
Okay, now that is all said and done, let’s get into my wrap-up. I don’t want to make this long but I just wanted to point that out.

June has finally bid goodbye and July has finally come. I am very excited for July because it’s my birth month! I have a lot of reading plans but nothing is final yet because The Reading Rush is also happening this month.
But this blog is not about my reading plans for July but my wrap-up for June. I did not read a lot of books for this month but I am happy with all the books that I have read. And most of them are physical copy which is a habit that I was hoping to carry over for July.
I managed to finish 7 books though 2 of which are less than 200 pages. But I also have 1 book that I DNF-ed which is a relief on my part. I also have some exciting books to show you that I hauled this month. So without further ado, let’s get into my wrap-up and book haul!

Months have been passing by so fast and we are already halfway through the year. The month of May has been good, reading and otherwise. I have read a total of 8 books and 1 novella. I enjoyed my time reading but I know I can do better if I didn’t get a minor slump near the end of the month.
However, 8 books and 1 novella are still a lot to talk about plus I also have an exciting book haul! So let’s get to it.

The end of April marks the end of another month which means that I, along with everybody else, is stuck at home for almost 2 months now. But along the environment and the ozone layer healing itself with this quarantine, I am doing quite well with reading books. I managed to finish 12 books for April.
This will be a very long wrap-up so I’ll make this intro short. I’ll be linking my full review of the books in this wrap-up if I have any. Okay let’s get into the books!

This mini readathon is really a fun one until I get to read my last book. I was on track with reading one book per day, given that the book that I am reading is quite short and not more than 200 pages. But the last book on my TBR is my biggest downfall and even though I managed to finished 3 books, I am still disappointed with myself.
I have managed to complete 3 challenges by reading 3 books. So let’s get into this wrap-up and talk about the books that I have read.

I think we could all agree that the month of March is probably the worst month of 2020 because of the COVID-19 Pandemic. We just finished the first quarter of the year and yet a lot of things has happened; a widespread virus, lots of deaths, the lockdowns in different parts of the world. So thank you March for this one hell of a ride. Let’s just hope that April will be 10 times better.
So enough about my monologue. I am here to do my March Wrap-up. I did not think that I have read a lot this month but I was surprised that I finished a decent amount of books. I managed to finish 3 novellas and 6 whole books, all of which are more than 300 pages. So good job self.
Okay so without further ado, let’s dive into the books that I have read this month. I will be linking my full review of the books if I have any so please check it out!

Time surely flies by so fast. We’re already on the third month of the year. Almost a quarter of the year done.
It’s sad to say that my reading rush has died down because I started re-watching my favorite anime, Detective Conan, again. So my reading time was consumed by my watching time. But still I managed to read a descent amount of books this month.
So without further ado, let’s dive into the books!

I can’t believe that we only have 11 months left for the new year. Time surely flies when you are having a good time.
My 2020 reading year is doing quite well. I finally managed to find the jive in reading and working. I think it also helps that I worked from home 4 times a week and I only go to the office once a week. I have been doing a lot of reading with the help of audiobook and it is life changing.
With that being said I read a total of 8 books this month. Which is surprising! I have never read that much in a month and I am excited to share with you the books that I have read. So without further ado, let’s dive into the books!

Hi friends! I know that The Reading Rush is over for more than a week now. But being the lazy person that I was, I am only wrapping it up now. I can say that I am successful with this readathon even though I haven’t manage to finish all 7 books in a week. I might have done that if I have chosen shorter books but where’s the fun in that?
Anyways, here is a quick overview of how my Reading Rush went.
If I haven’t slacked off on day 4 and 5 I might have read more books than just 5. Also I have managed to accomplished a couple of the challenges. I really tried very hard for this readathon because I like the badges! So here are all the badges that I have acquired in this year’s Reading Rush.
I think it’s about time for the wrap-up! I haven’t posted my full reviews for all the books that I have read but it’s coming. So with that being said, let’s proceed with the wrap-up.

And I also managed to read 6 books in a week. WHO AM I? I used to read a book for a week or more lately but now? 6 books?? I used to read like that back in High School!
