March 2021 Wrap-up// Yea Life Goes On~

Time definitely flies

School has been going on and I genuinely did not notice that it’s already April. Offline school isn’t as bad as I expected it to be. I am actually understanding stuff and it is fun to meet my friends everyday!

March was a LOT. I read a lot of great books and there were too many K-pop releases to count so without any further ado, let’s get straight into the post!

There has been a huge rise in hate crimes against Asians in America so please check out these resources and educate yourself. Consider donating if you can!

Books

  • With Fire On High Elizabeth Acevedo // I adored Elizabeth Acevedo’s writing very much and I cannot wait to read from her! ★★★★☆
  • Poppy War R.F Kuang // Yes I have many books to read and yes I will still re-read this masterpiece in just two days. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk. ★★★★★ [re-read]
  • The One’s We’re Meant To Find Joan He // This book was very captivating and I enjoyed it very much! All you need to know is that the book is as beautiful as its cover. ★★★★☆
  • Made In Korea Sarah Suk // This was the CUTEST. Serotonin levels were off the charts and it was overall a very fun and fluffy contemporary! ★★★★★ [4.5]
  • Counting Down With You Tashie Bhuiyan // Everyone I just found my new favourite contemporary because hello, THE CHEESINESS? THE REPRESENTATION? Everything was perfect. RTC! ★★★★★
  • George Alex Gino // This was the only queer book in my school library so I decided to pick it up and would definitely recommend it! ★★★★☆
  • The Unbroken C.L Clark // As I said in my last post, this book was a brilliant military fantasy with themes of colonialism and a great read! ★★★★☆ [review]

Music

Purple Kiss- Ponzona

When I found out that RBW was debuting a new group, I was super excited because their groups are immensely talented. Purple Kiss’ debut was definitely a solid one and they didn’t disappoint at all!

Jessi- What Type of X

Queen Jessi will always deliver. This is such a bop!

Rosé- On The Ground

If I’m going to be honest, I was underwhelmed with this song at first but it certainly grew on me! The lyrics and MV are great too.

ITZY- Midzy

This is such a cute song!!

IU- Lilac

This song is a solid title track and IU never fails to exceed my expectations with her work!

Baekhyun- Bambi

Baekhyun’s songs are always filled with great vocals and this one is no exception!

Posts from the blogosphere

I swear i’ll try to post more this month!

What else happened this month?

To be honest not much?? I just spent most of my days following the same old routine- study, read and blast music all day long.

I also found out that contemporaries are now my thing? I didn’t really read many contemporaries, especially the ones which were romance centred but it feels great to just read something that is set in the time period we are in, not to mention the serotonin. Now I know what to do when I am in the slump 😎

K-dramas! I’m so weird like I binge a K-drama in just two days and not watch anything else for the rest of the month. I watched My ID is Gangnam Beauty which was super cute and I would highly recommend it!

ID: Gangnam Beauty - AsianWiki

Also, we are going to be reading Legendborn by Tracy Deonn as the BOTM for the Moonchild Lexicons discord server, so if you interested, make sure to join the server by clicking on this link!

There is also a new feature that I’m going to starting on my blog where I share Asian bookish creators’ favourite books in order to uplift their voices. So if you are interested in being a part of it, please fill out this form!
