Hellooooo, I have news for you. It’s up to you to decide whether it’s good or not. But fact.
JUNE IS ENDING TONIGHT.
Whaaaat? How??? Why so quick?
Ahhhh, nevermind, we never win a game against time.
Unless you have a blue police box that is bigger on the inside. So let’s go for our regular monthly wrap-ups!
Finally! I wasn’t THAT crazy to buy an enormous amount of books. But it didn’t stop me on paying more than allowed just because SCREW THEM PRICES ON LOCAL MARKET.
- Black Moon (Zodiac series) by Romina Russell
- The Young Elites (Young Elites series) by Marie Lu
- The Midnight Star (Young Elites series) by Marie Lu
- A Court of Wings and Ruin (ACOTAR series) by Sarah J. Maas
- The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

Mainly all of that non-fiction is for my writing researches. Lol at me.
Reading, Blogging and Bookstagram Wrap-up
Of course, I had to miserably fail my June reading resolutions and TBRs like… duh.
But still, I managed to read three books!
- Alice: The Wanderland Chronicles by J.M. Sullivan, a.k.a. a freaking awesome mix of Alice in Wonderland retelling and zombies in Divergent/Maze Runner/The Hunger Games style
- Silhouette by Justin Richards, a.k.a. I love Paternoster Gang/Victorian Trio #INeedMore
- A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab, a.k.a. WOW. I need the second book in Russian. NOW.
19 entries this month, not bad, I think! I guess this amount of blog posts is Just Right for a blog: not too much, and not too little.
Should I separate into two sub-categories: bookish and k-pop’ish?
I need to work harder on bookish discussions for real. And schedule posts instead of babbling in the last minute of the day.
- Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Fantasy Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR List
- Do The Talking: Why I buy books in Vietnamese when I never read in that language + polyglot problems
- Do The Talking: Background music when reading
- Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books Read In 2017 So Far
Yes, sure it seems that I invest more efforts into writing K-pop related posts, if compared to bookish ones, so I will try my best to fix and balance that 🙂
- Wednesday K-pop! with Liliana: Best PRODUCE 101 Season 2 performances, a.k.a. tell me how to overcome this Produce 101 addiction!
- Wednesday K-pop! with Liliana: NU’EST (Part 1, NO spoilers) + (Part 2, Produce 101 season 2 finale SPOILERS alert), a.k.a. I don’t ever want these boys to be slept on again!
- Wednesday K-pop! with Liliana: Best K-pop songs in 1st half of 2017
First of all: I changed my bookstagram theme! Well, that’s for those who missed this sudden news on the first week of June, hahahah.
Now I’m living on a dark side, a.k.a. using dark background to pop out the colors of featured books and merches, since I thought my previous theme was wayyyy too colorful for such bipolar person as I am. I definitely need to work more on flat lays, because I still think that I suck at it. But at least I figured out that too much props on a flat lay photos are definitely NOT my thing, so I stopped bothering about getting too much props I’m sure won’t be using for my photos because I’m literally lazy to brainstorm that much. Gosh, what.
Also lowkey need a new profile photo, considering the new theme…
So how was your June??? Sure you made more progress than I did, and I’ve recently come up with a prompt for another bookish discussion, so wait for it in July!
Love you all,
