Guessing 2021 Book Releases’ Plots Based on Nothing But Their Covers

Happy Lunar New Year, friends!

I’ve been inactive for the past few weeks, and as always, it’s because of school!! It’s time to announce a hiatus. I’ll try my best to post a February wrap-up, reply to comments, and blog hop here and there, but school has been really busy (second semester is much worse than the first), and I’m just too tired to maintain a blog right now. I’ll probably come back at the end of March aka the start of my summer break.

A Reflection on How Life, Reading, & Blogging Went in 2020 // Opening Up About My Feelings of Burn-Out

The first month of 2021 is almost over.

I meant to post my 2020 wrap-up earlier, but, of course, I’m me, so it’s coming to you late.

The idea of simply tier-ranking all of the books I read in 2020 came to me because tier-ranking was a trend on book twitter and booktube a while ago, so I thought “Why not?”.

December Wrap-up // Leaving My House for the First Time in 10 Months (Not Clickbait)

The dumpster fire of a year that is 2020 is over.

I would say I’m thankful, but it’s not like all the problems from last year are going to magically disappear. : ( The world is very much still a scary and flawed place. Please take some time to educate yourself on issues around the world and maybe sign some petitions.

My Most Anticipated 2021 Releases // Asian Books & Sapphics Are Coming to Save the 20s

Happy new year, everyone!

Yes, I know that I disappeared again in December, but it’s because I was reading 26 books in a desperate rush to complete my Goodreads challenge (but that’s a story for another day). Today I’m bringing you my most anticipated books of 2021. There are probably about five more 2021 releases I can name that I have my eyes on, but for the sake of keeping this post short, I’ve narrowed my list down to 14 books!
