Don’t you just love it when the contents of a book are as stunning as it’s cover?
The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea was exactly this. I’m still in awe of how much this book managed to do in less than 400 pages. With well-written characters and gorgeous prose, this alternative perspective on a Korean myth definitely served.
Today, I’m super excited to share my thoughts on this promising YA fantasy and hopefully convince you all to read it, or at the very least, add it to your TBR!
[I also have a playlist for The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea which you can find here!]

Is it too early to say that I’ve found my favourite book of the year?
Ophelia After All was a book that made me sob and laugh. It was just such a beautiful and comforting read and I don’t think that I’ll be over it anytime soon. It is a perfect book to read when you are in need of a big hug and an “everything will be okay” from someone as Ophelia and all the other characters in the novel do exactly this.
In my opinion, OAA is the standard for YA contemporaries because it has everything from a friend group with several dynamics and high school drama to discovering one’s identity covered in less than 400 pages.
So today, in order to fuel mine and everyone else’s Ophelia After All brainrot, I have an interview with the one and only Racquel Marie on writing her debut novel, it’s publishing process, future projects and much more!

I refuse to believe that the first month of 2022 is already over
I’ve been pretty busy with school and have been basically studying all the time in January. There was a huge spike in covid cases in the country, but our school decided to ignore it and not close down and switch to online, so me being petty, I didn’t go either! I just stayed home and did my own thing and honestly, I enjoyed it very much.
This month felt so short but I did manage to get a lot of stuff done. I posted pretty consistently, read a book per week and of course, listen to music 25/8. Here’s everything in detail~

January is almost ending and it is now that I finally decide to write a wrap-up for 2021
I honestly have no idea where to begin this post as it is my first time writing it. I was so hyped up seeing everyone do end of the year posts last year because they looked like so much fun and I was really sad as I didn’t really know what I was doing in 2020 so I didn’t track my reading and stuff. But in 2021, I did indeed get a reading spreadsheet and enjoyed using it a lot!
I was going to make this a reading wrap-up only post initially but I thought, why not summarize everything that happened in the past year in all spheres like reading, blogging, and life? This post will be a nice memory to look back on when I’m older and hopefully reflect on my growth and see how much progress I made in everything I care for!
I’ve divided this post into sections so that it’s not all over the place, so without further ado, let’s get right into it!

2021 was a year full of emotions…
And my reading definitely reflected that. I began the year with a 500+ page high fantasy book but slowly transitioned into reading more contemporary/romance because I just needed that ✨serotonin✨ or my brain was too tired to comprehend complex words and worlds (or maybe both) Nevertheless, I have no shame about that because I read what I felt and most importantly, enjoyed almost every single one of them!
It was very difficult to pick just 10 books to be my top reads of 2021, but after hours of contemplation, I’ve finally narrowed down the 10 best of the best ones from the total of 62 books that I read last year.
All of these hold a special place in my heart and I will not refrain from recommending these to anyone and everyone!
