August 2021 wrap up (it’s my birthday!)

img_0036

August wasn’t a great reading month for me, since I was busy packing, moving, and preparing for the new semester. Also, today’s my birthday! I’ll be celebrating by attending lectures through Zoom, going to work through Zoom, and going to club meetings through Zoom. All jokes aside, while these aren’t the ideal conditions, I’m thankful to be able to celebrate (virtually) surrounded by my good friends.

May & June 2021 wrap-up

Is it just me, or did June go by really fast? I swear one moment the spring semester ended and now we’re already half way through summer break. While May was pretty hectic with finals, June was super chill. Now that it’s summer time, I have some time to catch up on reading and other things….

January and February 2021 Wrap-Up (+ taking an unplanned break)

img_0036

The first two months of 2021 have been… intense (to put it nicely). There was an attack on the White House, America got a new president, the spring semester for Zoom University started, racial violence against Asian Americans have skyrocketed, and the state I’m currently residing in experienced a huge black out due to an arctic blast where we were left with no electricity, heat, WiFi, and clean running water.

On the flip side, I got a lot of reading done, and I wrote more posts than I expected. However, I might need to put on the brakes to blogging for a bit, but I’ll get into that later.

July + August Wrap-Up | The Awkward Book Blogger

I don’t know about you, but July FLEW by. It feels like it was two weeks too short. The end of the month snuck up on me so fast that I didn’t even remember to write a wrap up post! Frankly, I almost forgot to write a wrap-up post for August too. Thank goodness the end of August ends around a weekend because I wouldn’t have the time to write this otherwise.

So, how did the last two months go, you may ask? Well, let’s see…

April 2020 Wrap-Up | The Awkward Book Blogger

Hello, fellow kids! How’s it going?

We are still quarantined (at the time I’m writing this), but from what I heard from the news that’s going to change in the near future. Much like last month, because we were encouraged to stay at home unless absolutely necessary, I found myself with more free time than I knew what to do with. Most of the time I just turned to reading, so much so that I feel a reading slump coming in. More on that later, though.

For now, let’s get on with the wrap-up!

March 2020 Wrap-Up | The Awkward Book Blogger

Hello, earthlings! I don’t normally do monthly wrap-ups (because I don’t do enough bookish stuff in a month to make a remotely interesting post about it), but for some odd reason the bookish gods were on my side and I got quite a bit done. I even had time to make a spicy new banner for my wrap-ups! I’m very happy with how it turned out. I guess it did help that I was on spring break for twice as long as expected with the whole social distancing and quarantine thing that’s happening right now. More on that later, though.

For now, let’s take a gander at the review of March.
