A post in which I tell you about my future plans HIATUS

This is the dreaded post, guys. This is it.

So most of you know that I’ve recently graduated from high school. And some of you are already aware that I’ll be going on a hiatus soon. Why? I’m starting uni. I know most of you would be like, “But I’m  in uni and I work and read and blog and study just fine.” And yes, I know that. But I’m going to a public uni.

Indiscretion by Hannah Fielding Book Review

[I received a free copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you so much, Ms Fielding, for giving me this opportunity]

For those who are unaware of what is happening, Goodreads will, from January 2018, prevent authors from creating giveaways for international readers. Basically, authors will have to pay $119 for a giveaway base package, and $599 for the premium. Previously, all authors had to pay for was shipping. Read more here.

Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas Book Review (more like me disliking the MC but same difference)

book-review

This book took me 2 whole weeks to finish. And after days and days of torture and of forcing myself to JUST READ, I finally finished it. Umm, I thought this was the last book in the series, for some reason? So the ending was definitely shocking. And somehow –somehow– I realized, halfway into the book, that hell, I don’t like the main character anymore.  Continue reading
