After all the crazy busy weeks, I finally have some time to give you guys a proper update on what I’ve been doing, the direction I will go on with this blog and so on.
These are all my 5 stars book so far that I’ve enjoyed this year, I plan on reviewing these books individually pretty soon!
Brandon Sanderson has been such a revelation for me this year ,along with Madeleine Miller 🙂 Neil Gaiman never disappoints with the Sandman and The Monster of Elendhaven will be released in September and can’t wait for you all to see how it’s like. I felt like I disliked more books in the last two months than liked books so that’s why it won’t be necessary to feature the least favourite ones haha. The list will be long.
Me and Lashaan don’t have time anymore to write posts together, unfortunately you won’t see Monthly Wrap Ups of us. The simple reason is I can’t do them on time and I didn’t want Lashaan to wait and postpone those posts, so we decided we are going to everything separately from now on on Bookidote. It may be redundant for you guys, but it was the best way to function.
The reason why you guys haven’t seen me much on the blog is I was pretty busy with my 1st year of medical school. I decided to go back to school after graduating. It was rough and very time consuming. I found out a chilled-out and relaxed method that works best in exams because stress can really be the major obstacle in performance haha. I got to dissect my first cadaver which was terrifying but so fascinating at the same time! Meanwhile, I’m working as a research coordinator but also a Physician Assistant at the hospital near my school.
2019 has been THE year of Food blogging for me and one of the main reasons why I haven’t been blogging much about books. You can find my food blogging adventure on my instagram. I started my food photography business back in April and since then it bloomed even more. I struggled with the new success arriving at a fast pace, with medschool and everything was too overwhelming. I decided to slow down in June and July, accepting less contracts.
Yes you read it right! My sister got married in June and it was simply magical! The preparation was exhausting and being the Maid of honour, I still had to run around a lot haha but it was such an intense feeling and emotion seeing her there all happy. I started to cry when my Dad saw her in a wedding dress T_T.
After months of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, my mom is cancer-free and she is now more beautiful than ever. My sister’s wedding was an opportunity for my mom to be with her family and surrounded from all her closed ones coming all the way from Vietnam and United States.
I’ll try to review books as much as I can but I also want to take this opportunity to tell you guys I might be shifting and write about whatever I feel like. It doesn’t have to be book reviews but anything that passes on my mind, I’ll share it on this blog because.. that’s truly what blogging is about.
And what about my own personal plans? 🙂 I’m preparing to move to Boston and continuing my medical studies there in Fall 2019! Wish me luck!
To all the new followers, welcome welcome 😀 How was your book blogging journey so far I’d love to connect !
