Monthly Roundup β†ͺ Aug/SeptπŸ›«

I’ve had the sleepy b*tch disease as my friends call it. I’M JUST SO TIRED. ALWAYS!!!! ☹️ But I spent September in the UK visiting my sister and seeing friends so I tried VERY HARD to read as much as possible (mostly short books that I have not gotten around to reading from NetGalley), AND I changed my GoodReads reading goal because I want the shiny badge. It’s now at 30, and I think I did pretty well. SILVER LINING!

Easing yourself back into enjoying and engaging with a hobby that you love is hard and upsetting because it should be easy, but if it’s been ages, it’s not!! AND IT’S FRUSTRATiNG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

[Book Haul] Epigram Christmas Sale 2018πŸŽ„

Early December in 2018 Epigram had a REALLY REALLY good sale for Christmas (Hanukkah too IMO) at their HQ office space in Toa Payoh. I decided to kick my hermit ass out of the house one evening to go have a look and see if there was anything I didn’t own yet. Spoiler: there was.

Better Shorts Than ‘Cat Person’ [Literary Lists]

If you were away from the internet recently, let me fill you in.Β Everyone lost their minds over a semi decent short story in the New Yorker about a 20 something college girl having a questionable but short lived relationship.

Long story short, people got upset, people had opinions, and honestly, there are SO MANY better short stories out there that you can read instead of this one. Here are my recommendations of short story anthologies that you can read instead of bothering with that one.Β πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
