It’s been a long time since I’ve made a blog post. Although this particular one may not be sensible enough to tinker your interest, I’m writing it for the sake of reviving my blog. Sure enough, I’ve missed doing this. Not that I stopped. I just took a break—a long one. A break from my blog means endless hours of marathoning (and no, that’s not a word, but whatever) TV series I need to catch up on, a superfluous flow of tweets on Twitter, procrastinating every single day and of course, the numero uno reason (that we need not mention, to be honest, but whatever): school and all its burden. Okay, not really. School was a breeze this past month. Lessons seemed easier and I didn’t have any major problems. The first set of our examinations that we are taking on Monday and Tuesday is probably the only thing I hate right now—wait, no—count in the crappy WiFi that is more moody than a teenager on her period. But other than that, I’ve been smooth sailing.
October just came to an end (AND HELLO TO MY BIRTHDAY MONTH). It was a nice reading month for me. I naturally read 6-7 books but this month I’ve only read a total of 4 books due to extreme laziness. I didn’t really plan on reading kind of creepy books this month. It just happened! I didn’t plan this (lol).
This month, I’ve read:
I’ve never read anything by Cast. This is my first read of hers. This book is a part of the House of Night series and I don’t think I will be able to read it all. I think book 11 just came out. Yep. It is part of a very long series. I had mixed feelings about the book. It was very slow during the first couple of pages but towards the end, it became really interesting.
Believe it or not, this is my first Sara Shepard book. What a surprise (lol). I know this book is now a TV series and it already has 2 seasons (I think). I originally planned just watching it but I don’t have the money to buy DVDs so I ended up reading it. The book was really interesting and it had a nice mystery out there.
This is my most favorite book of the month! I got it mainly because Kat loved it and rated it 5 stars so I thought I’d give it a try and I wasn’t disappointed! It was worth every penny! If you love vampires and apocalypse dystopian books, you’d really really like this! It is a unique read and you will not expect the twists and turns of the story! If you want a book to get back into reading, THIS IS IT! It is a standalone so it gave me more motivation to read it.
After reading (AND LOVING) the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, I wanted more. I thought i’d give the spin-off series a try. So I read the first book in the Heroes of Olympus series and oh my goodness it was really good! As usual, Riordan’s writing style made me excited, made me giggle and just gave me all sorts of feels. I can’t wait to read The Son of Neptune!

After a 2(?) week long reading slump (which, by the way, was a nice little break from reading) I’m finally back on track. You know, we also need to take a break from the good stuff. It won’t hurt, I promise. I’m currently reading The Lying Game by Sara Shepard. It was the third book I fished out of my TBR jar. I have reasons for not reading the first two options, don’t worry. Have a lovely night(?)!
On another note, I just learned that managing 45738497539 blogs on Tumblr is a messy job so I decided to move my book reviews back in this blog and use my book blog as a reblog blog for books and all that fun stuff. Yay.
Irena's art on the Tumblr log in page! She's one of my favorite illustrators. Something about her artwork makes me feel giddy and just plain happy!

This is worth a space in my blog.
Hi guys! I may or may not be inactive on here. Also, I may or may not have a valid reason . Well, actually I do: I’ve been losing all my creative juices. But I’m back now and that’s what counts, right? But before I bore you with this super long intro, here’s a few movies I’m keeping my eyes peeled for! (Note: These movies are in no particular order or something.)
Carrie is an upcoming supernatural horror film that I have been waiting for for so long! I’ve seen it’s trailer probably around summer and I found the movie poster at the cinema today. I don’t normally like horror (because i’m a scaredycat ugh) but I think this will be an exception.
Let me just comment on the poster: I personally don’t like it. I love this one more. Okay. Moving on…
OKAY. I MEAN WHO DOESN’T WANT TO SEE THE SECOND FILM IN THE HUNGER GAMES SERIES?!?! I literally cannot stress this enough. We’ve all been waiting for so long (oh my gods). Oh and did you guys know, Catching Fire is R15? I’m not so sure about this but I will still be able to watch it because I’m turning 15 on the 17th of November! Hooray!
3. Ender’s Game
Another book-to-movie adaptation(?). I’ve been meaning to read Ender’s Game for the longest time but I always forget about it and now, the movie will be out soon and I really need to read it before I watch. It’s just how the world works I guess. I’ve actually been into a lot of sci-fi lately and I don’t know why.
And last but definitely not least…
Poster comment! Don’t you wanna be Hailee here?! I KNOW I DO. *creys*
Another remake! I am SO looking forward to this one. I’veseen the second(?) remake starring Leo DiCaprio and Clair Danes and wow it was so so so nice! If you haven’t watched it, go download it NOW or something. You’ll spaz (because Leo) I tell you. Anyway, I really like the cast of this movie. Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet and Douglas Booth (this boy is FINE deym) as Romeo, not to mention, Ed Westwick (gossip girl fan right here although i’m stuck in season 5 ha) as Tybalt.
So those are all the movies I’m looking forward to this year! What’s yours? :)
P.S. I did not include the Carrie poster because IT’S 12 IN THE MORNING
I put up three new book raves/reviews! ~*
- Who wouldn’t want to get lost in this world? There’s so much places we can build a safe haven out of.
- Simple is beautiful.
- And I’m referring to clothes.
- My mind is a haze in which the particles are my problems in school, tweets and books I’ve yet to read.
- Cool. That rhymed.
- If you want to procrastinate, go on YouTube.
- Alex Pettyfer. Wow.
- Can u not.
- Because I just watched I Am Number Four. Ha.
- This list does not make sense, therefore, I will stop.
Good night ☺
