This Month Recap: June 2018

Advertisements

  • I watched Star Wars: A Solo Story, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Deadpool 2, and Avengers Infinity War this month.
  • That’s not too bad (3 movies in one month). Jurassic World was a pleasant surprise (it was actually really enjoyable, at least for me), Star Wars was…okay. Deadpool 2 was kind of disappointing, something tells me it wasn’t as funny as the first one (I don’t know why), but I still enjoyed it. Avengers Infinity War should not need any elaboration, because it’s Avengers Infinity War. 
  • MY BLOGGING GAME IS BACK WITH FULL FORCE THIS MONTH
  • As you guys may know, for the past few months I had been horrible with managing my blog because I completely dedicated myself to dragging my grades up (which was not in vain thank god). So this month I worked twice as hard to get back on track, and I feel like I did pretty good. I’m so happy and I am pretty proud of myself, I have nothing to regret, which is the best feeling ever 💕.
  • So many books, so little time
  • I really did very well (and my best, I didn’t waste any time) so I don’t regret anything.
  • First month of my summer vacation is already over (sigh)
  • I’ve started fan art
  • Canada Day 🍁 💖

ARCs this month

I participate in the State of the ARC meme, so if you want to see detailed statistics of my ARCs (literally), check out my post here

This Month Recap: April 2018, Avengers Infinity War, Feedspot, and more

I made sure to start this month’s recap especially early just so that 1) I wouldn’t be so rushed to do it, 2) for me to become a better and more organized blogger and 3) so that I could spend more time on improving what to write on my monthly recap posts and making it better.

accomplishments this month

Was March another worthless month for me?

No, but literally by an inch. It was way to close to being another one of those unproductive months.

One of the things I was most proud of this month was making it onto the ‘Top 100 Book Review Blogs and Websites To Follow in 2018‘ list on Feedspot. I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty excited about that. Thank you guys so much for choosing me!

On social media, I also reached over 800 followers of Twitter, 100 friends on Goodreads, and I was added to the Book Depository blogger list (and I know these numbers are nothing compared to other bloggers, but please bear with me).

I ‘m also really happy to say that I am still receiving a lot of review request, and all thought that can be really overwhelming, it’s things like this that reminded me why I deem my blog as such a big personal achievement for myself.

non-bookish things

Avengers Infinity War, of course!

5 days! God, time goes by so fast. 5 days until one of the greatest movie of all time, a historical moment for the Marvel Cinematic Universe is released. This movies is going to make history. I understand that there are people out there who thinks this movie’s hype is too overrated (because it is just a superhero movie). But this is really an important and significant moment in a Marvel fan’s heart and life.

what did I achieve this month?

This month was pretty bad when it comes to productivity, because I dropped everything this month to focus on school, and to get as high grades as possible. My Q3 reports came out, and it was a breath of relief, but still not good enough for some of the courses I was originally recommended in, so I need to drag my grades up further.

Other than that, nothing is that eventful, and I’m just another person trying to be surviving life like this:

I’m also pretty sure I broke my record for most review requests received in one month, and that most likely is due to how I signed up for a lot more ARC lists for authors and publishers (which is probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made).

the arc this month

The thing that makes this specific State of the ARC special is not the number of ARCs I currently have, but the number of ARCs request I didn’t even have time to open yet because I had been focusing so much on school.

Here are all the ARCs I downloaded this month:

LIFE

  • I got my first iphone (but it’s still restricted). I would love to take a picture of it, but then again how the hell are you suppose to take a picture of your phone (it’s like trying to write your name on your pencil)
  • I went to watch Thor: Ragnarok 🔨
  • My braces is already making notable changes, and my diet is still progressing
  • Winter is really coming! It’s starting to get cool where I live
  • Which is awesome because winter is my favorite season, and the cozy environment especially when I’m with my family just put a smile on my face 😊
  • STRANGER THINGS SEASON 2
  • Congrats on Avalinah’s success on her very new Goodreads group, where bloggers and reviewers band together to fight through and survive their band of ARCs. Make sure you join the group here: https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/269862-arcs-anonymous

Non-Blogger News

So basically…school would be starting next month for me.

Yeah.

My school’s summer vocation starts at June, so it makes sense it would end at August. But this basically makes my life…not normal I guess.

Okay, that’s not the point.

Life event happened this month, if you have been keeping track of my blog you would’ve known I’ve gotten braces.

And that’s that.

(Okay, I really suck at this 😂)

Things I Checked-Off My Bookworm Bucket-list:

I finally finished the Throne of Glass series!

I read Throne of Glass three years ago.

Yeah.

It has been on my two be-finished list for such a long time, and one of the main reasons that I didn’t finish it is because I read it online three years ago (before I got Andrick, my kindle), and for some reason I never finished it.

And now I did.

And I finished Empire Storms.

And my life is over.

And the Shatter Me series!

…and the hating Game by Susan Throne!

The Reason there is no TBR list for next month is because there are too many, and you can just view it on my Goodreads account. Sorry 😂
