TAG #38: The Fall Book Tag

The fall book

Hello guys!

I had actually finally run out of tags to do. Not only in my queue, byut I had stopped seeing any that piqued my interest BUT, just as I was starting to despair (not really), I stumbled upon this one on Marta @ The Book Mermaid‘s blog and it seemed mike the perfect time to do it, since there’s not much fall left (although, we barely started feeling it here a week ago). So without further ago let’s dive directly into the post. Continue reading

Hello guys,

So another month has come and gone and it’s suddenly november… WHAT? Like, we’re two months away from the end of 2017 (which was a trashfire, mind you) and my brain genuinely can’t compute. HOW DID IT GO SO FAST? Anyway, I will keep freaking out internally and get on with this wrap-up.

Hello guys !

I’m doing an award today and it’s… the same award as the past couple times haha. I’M SORRY OKAY ? But like, the questions vary so it’s something different every time even when the title is the same. It’s not that big of a deal, right? Right? This time around my wonderful sib Mariam @ Mariam’s Yummy Books is the one who tagged me, so thanks bub for the tag ❤

TAG #36: Mid-year Book Freak-out tag

Midyear book freakout

Hello guys !

Please give me a second to register that half of 2017 has already flown by !!! It can’t be, can it? But yes, it’s already summer, it’s already July and I’ve already read 45 books this year, two of which aren’t on goodreads and one I read twice. I’m actually really proud of how good I’m doing reading wise, reading more books AND better books. Most of the books I read this year are 3.5 stars and up.

Anyway, enough ramblings, I don’t think I was tagged to do this one (if you tagged me, please let me know so that I can mention you in the post) but I did it last year and it was a lot of fun to do so I decided I’d do it again. This tag was created by Chami @ ReadLikeWildFire and Ely @ Ely Jayne. Continue reading

To Sum-up: June 2017

2017 June.png

Hello guys !

This month was a very weird one for yours truly. Full of ups, downs and surprising, all of which were so freaking exhausting because I just couldn’t keep up. Which means my reading suffered considering how much free time I had.

1

This was my first month of summer vacation and although I didn’t have school I was still highly stressed waiting for exam results as well as for some personal reasons that you might know of if follow me on Twitter. That being said, Ramadan was very welcome because this month would’ve been much worse to handle if I didn’t have that to focus on and try my best to do good at.

Then my exam results were out on the 15th and the week after was a week from hell. So here’s how it went. Remember I had told you I did super well on my exams and was proud of myself, right? Well all my results showed it but one. ONE. They gave me an 8.75/20 which wasn’t enough to pass and said I had to resit it. I just couldn’t understand for the life of me how that happened, I felt cheated and defeated. Luckily, I had friends by my side (IRL and on the internet) who were there for me and gave me strength so I requested that my paper be regraded and they  realized they made a FREAKING MISTAKE so now I don’t have to resit it. And I am so happy about that because as much as I actually loved the subject I don’t think I had it in me to study again.

That was the traumatizing event of the month. After that I went to my aunt’s house in Marrakech for Eid celebrations, ate lots of yummy food, well no my family had the food because my stomach was (and still is) upset because I’m lactose intolerant and had whole milk Starbucks.

There’s also some other stuff that is a little too personal to share on here but it’s stuff that makes me very happy so YAY.

2017 - June

Ok so even if quantity wise this wasn’t the greatest, it was fantastic quality wise. As you can see I loved nearly all of them and I can’t even express how much all of those 5 star reads mean to me, all for different reasons. All of these were for Ramadan Readathon which was lots of fun to do and I hope I can participate next year as well.

Other than those, I read 2 unpublished books, both of which are written by friends of mine and both of which were amazing !! Which rounds it up to 6 books and that number isn’t too bad haha.

3

  • Future Leaders of Nowhere – Emily O’Beirne                             3 stars
  • Written in the Stars – Aisha Saeed                                               5 stars
  • Haven – Rebekah Weatherspoon                                                   4.5 stars
  • The Rose Society – Marie Lu                                                           4 stars
  • Lambs Can Always Become Lions – Charlotte A. Hamilton     4.5 stars

I haven’t been awesome at bloghopping but I’m getting there, okay?

2017 Diversity Bingo Update.png

Here you can find the original sheet and a bunch of recommendations.

I’m pretty proud of my progress on this one, not gonna lie. I added 4 books this month which I was planning on getting 5 but since I couldn’t get Saints & Misfits the 5th didn’t happen.

Hopefully I lot more blog-hopping and presence in the community in general, I feel like I’ve been neglecting it and I’m sad about that. I’m also going back to my normal blogging schedule of  3 posts a week, but with a slight change:

  • Monday: Discussion
  • Wednesday: Miscellaneous (extra-review, tag, award, recommendations, etc…)
  • Friday: Review

I also have a very promising (and a little too ambitious TBR) and I haven’t been excited about reading so many books in a long time so YAY !

Last but not least, my friend Charlotte and I made and Instagram account (@diverseaesthetics) where we share aesthetics for books we’ve read and I’ll be sharing some of mine with the corresponding reviews. I’ll love you forever if you follow it *hugs*.

That’s it until next time.

Did you read any of these books? What did you think of them?

What books did you read this month? Oh! And if you have any posts you think I should check out, leave them in the comments.

Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.
