Most Anticipated Reads! 07/17 [Book Haul-ish]

I don’t think I’ve ever done a post like this before, but I figure I might as well! Especially since there are more than a couple of books I have been eagerly awaiting…!

Asian Lit Bingo [Book Tag]

At the beginning of May I saw Aentee’s post about this month long event called,ย Asian Lit Bingo. Which is AMAZING, being from Singaporeย I’m always trying to find more books, especially SFF, written by Asian authors as well as books that ARE Asian in content in someway.

Instead of participating because my reading has been a bit stagnant as of late, I decided to find a book for each of the squares and make a rec list instead!! In retrospect I probably should have posted this earlier, but whatever. Better late than never. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Didn’t finish my stack of short books again… But I was reading longer books too so I think that’s a good enough reason!!!!!!!! Maybe March will be the month I finish the stack and finally get to dive headfirst into my Unread section of my home library, as well as local library.

I also thought of doing a mid month book haul post, as I got a bunch of library books as -*well as bought a few second hand ones, but it’s now marchย so… it doesn’t…. feel like… there’s…. much……. point…………

Monthly Roundup โ†ช Jan โŒš๐Ÿ˜ซ

I reallyย really REALLYย underestimated how busy I would get working at the national paper as a photojournalist intern/temp… Working a 10 hour day is the norm and getting to come home at 6-7pm for dinner is a lucky break. And I’m not even doing early or late night shifts yet!!

It’s madness but I’m enjoying it so there’s that. I’ve also been able to shoot a few stories that are book related and I’ll eventually post them up here since they are what I’d call a “Local Love”. One is a restaurant and the other is an author!

Despite my hectic schedule I managed to read 4 of my short books from my January TBR post, which even though is not even close to what my goal was, I also read 2 books that were longer than 200 pages. So I guess it’s not all bad. I’m just going to transfer that TBR challenge to February and try and read more in-between travelling to jobs during the week.

OK BOOK TIME!
