It’s been a long ass time since I’ve posted anything, and I’ve thought about what I should post but came to the conclusion that I’m just not enjoying it as much as I used to.
I started this as something fun to do before I went off to uni again in 2015, and in the years that followed I kept up with it as I was having fun posting for my own enjoyment!
But in the last year I’ve been busy doing other things and being more productive and ‘functional’ than I’ve ever been and as a result realised that posting here felt more like a chore than a hobby or fun activity.
So I’ve decided to shut this down. I’ll still leave it up but I won’t post anymore. Maybe one day I’ll fully delete it, but for now I’ll just leave it be.
I’ll still post reviews on GoodReads thought because I do think writing a little review after reading a book or comic/graphic novel helps me think about what I’ve actually read, non-fiction or otherwise.
On Saturday I went to the third Mynah Magazine launch!! They also had a really neat panel with several of their contributors that was moderated by the Mynah Magazine editor, Isabelle Lim. 🐦🐦🐦
It was absolutely mad packed and people even had to go upstairs to a balcony seating…!
I took notes as best I could of the discussion and the Q&A after (I’m in the picture, see if you can spot me 👀🎯🕵️♀️) so my notes are not 100% accurate… Apologies if there’s any misquotes or misunderstandings!! 😩
Amanda Lee Koe is one of my favourite homegrown authors and has been for years, so when I heard that she was gonna promote her first novel in SG, I resolved to attend at least ONE of the events!! I ended up going to her last one on the 31st of August at BooksActually.
I took some notes from the mini panel as well as the little Q&A afterwards as I thought people might be interested to hear what she had to say!
I wasn’t planning to buy books but then we were hashtag blessed with enough luggage allowance and since we didn’t really pack that much.. I just let loose. OH NO I SLIPPED AND SUDDENLY ALL THESE BOOKS ARE MINE??
