The mid-year book freak out tag

What even is time?

We’re already in July and the only thing that happened this year that I remember is….trauma.

Honestly 2021 has been such a blur that all the days seem to blend together into a long endless boring day. Again. school has been taking all my braincells and I don’t have to energy to follow a posting schedule so my posts are again gonna be whenever I get the time to write!

But whatever I’ve read this year have been pretty good and I’ve found so many books to scream about, so here I am, doing the mid-year book freak out tag because I’m running out of post ideas :P

All about ARCs: How and where to get them + Some tips

I have an obsession with ARCs…!

I would be lying if I said that I don’t go on netgalley and edelweiss every single. There is something about getting approved for an ARC, being all excited about it and then that exact title sitting unread on your kindle for months.

Let’s be honest, ARCs are pretty cool! Being able to read a book months before it hits the shelves and then providing your opinion on it is not only a great experience for the readers anticipating the book but also helps the author get a head start.

We are only four months into 2021 and *checks spreadsheet* I already have 20 ARCs for books releasing throughout this year and one for a 2022 release which I am super grateful about! So, how do you acquire ARCs? What even are ARCs? Let’s take a deeper dive into these questions!

Recommending books based on K-pop songs (or maybe vice versa)

Welcome to me screaming about two of my most favourite things in the world!

It is after I change my blog’s name that I finally decide to talk about music here. Love that for me.

K-pop is something I’ve loved dearly for almost two years at this point. From initially getting into it after listening to BTS’ Boy With Luv in 2019 to listening to countless K-pop artists every single day, the music genre has inevitably become a huge part of my life. The thing about K-pop that I love is the overall relatable and catchy music and the wonderful storytelling through both music videos and lyrics which truly makes them different from other mainstream artists.

I started reading diversely in mid-2020 and have fallen in love with it ever since. Though I’ve been reading ever since I can remember, diverse books have had a huge impact on me because seeing myself and people from all around the world being represented in literature gives me nothing but joy.

So today I am going to mixing both these things and recommending some books based on K-pop songs (or I may be indirectly brainwashing you all to listen to K-pop, no one will ever know 😎)

My Favourite and least favourite books that I read in 2020

It is time i scream about my favourites and diss my least favourite books

Many bloggers are wrapping up their reading and are sharing their favourite and least favourite books along with some very specific stats which I don’t have because I was clueless and lazy just figured out spreadsheets.

So me being me I am going to write a very long post, instead of two because I don’t have the time nor patience for two posts :D

I thankfully did not read many bad books this year so only I have 4 books which I didn’t really enjoy. On the other hand I read MANY amazing books so I had to narrow down my list to 10!

    Hello there! So 2021 is around the corner which means 1)This year is FINALLY over and 2)More books are gonna release! Not to mention that this little headspace of mine is turning one soon πŸ₯Ί

    If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I don’t stop screaming about certain books I like (take We Are Not Free as an example) for a LONG time or until everyone I know has read it. So in today’s post i’ll be going over 15 books I potentially won’t stop screaming about.

    So without further ado let’s get into the post because this list is long and only the 1/4 of the books I want to/will want to read, releasing next year because TBR>Life expectancy. Again most of these are books by Asian authors and all of them are by BIPOC so don’t forget to hype up the authors after reading this post!
