Lashaan: I couldn’t agree more.


Even if the doctor does not give you a year, even if he hesitates about a month, make one brave push and see what can be accomplished in a week.

– Robert Louis Stevenson



July must’ve been one of the busiest months ever! Juggling research, thesis, work and life has kept me awake and busy every single day. It made me realize how impossible it has become to say: “I’m bored.” Such things would spew out of us back as a teenager, but now I just wish I had more time to do so much more than what I’m already doing! August should be a bit more calmer and bring me back to a much more steady rhythm. Can we just get an AMEN for all these books out there that we just can’t wait to pick up and read next? It’s like my lifeline nowadays. The one thing that will always be there. It’s no joke when they a book is a man’s best friend!

I had a quite crazy month! Kind of hard to get back to life after a month of vacation hahah , got to take some time to see old friends too and I was happy for that 😀 Some major breakthroughs about opportunities and how will my future unfolds but I’m going to go with the flow and see how it goes.

    I completely agree, Lashaan. I can’t remember how many times I said “I’m so bored” when I was a teenager. Seems like a lifetime ago. Adults weren’t kidding when they said they “never had time” to do anything, huh? (which seemed ridiculous back then) 😀
    I love both those quotes, btw.

    1. Exactly!! I thought maybe they just had bad time management skills, but wow… Our priorities change, new responsibilities crawl out of nowhere and life leaves you a bunch of obstacles courses to go through before you can have a moment of peace to do what you want hahahha Have a wonderful August, Lauren! 🙂

  2. You get an Amen from me ! Oh I’ve seen Yesterday and it looks really good, I think I’d like to read it too! I wish you both a great August month!

    1. Ahahaha yas!! 😛 Yesterday caught my attention with its cover, but then when I got around to the blurb, my curiosity was at a peak. There’s a scifi twist to this thriller, which is definitely a nice change to all the thrillers I’ve been reading lately. Hopefully the ending will blow my mind! Happy reading, Inge! 😀

    Heartless was a very interesting read. I hope you enjoy it. I had mixed feelings about it.

  5. I’m curious to what you will think of heartless, I have heard some mixed reviews. I have only read the first book Cinder in the lunar chronicles and thought it was really fun, but I should finish that series before embarking on another I think.

  7. Just remember to enjoy the rest of the lovely (most of the time) summer weather we are having. Summer is going by so fast, but isn’t that always the case?

    1. Duly noted. 🙂 Wish summer was never-ending.. Then again.. with global warming, I think we’ll surely have something like that soon enough.

  10. I hope August does end up being a little calmer for you Lashaan, I definitely agree with your thoughts on books, they really can be man’s best friend can’t they? Then again we’re all blogging on here about the same thing so I reckon you’ll be hard pressed to find someone who disagrees with that! 😀
    Trang I hope you’ve managed to adjust to life back after your vacation. I get what you mean because I never want to face real life after coming back from holiday but sometimes I guess we just have to.
    I hope you both enjoy the books you’re currently reading, and the books still on your to-read lists! 🙂

    1. Definitely! It’s nice that we’re mostly all here for the same passion. Although there are some people out there who just love to #hate even among us for whatever reason. Then again, as long as we’re happy doing what we love (reading and sharing!!), life is good! 😀 Happy reading, Beth!~

      1. I don’t get that, but I tend to avoid the people who are just here to hate for whatever reason. Let them have their corner of the internet and I’ll stick to mine.
        Thanks Lashaan! 😀

    1. Yep, Asian writer, she is. Although, I don’t think that affected the story she wrote in any way though. You’ll be surprised by the review hihih Happy reading, Dani!! 😀
