Wrap Up #December

Is it just me or did I just realize how obsessed I am over Shadow and Bone because this theory about Elsa being a Grisha Tidemaker has been stuck to my mind for the two whole month…she just doesn’t use water in its liquid form because she changes its state to ice…

Number of books read: 1

You Can Go Your Own Way by Erin Smith (Contemporary)

You Can Go Your Own Way
Source: Goodreads

My Ratings: 3/5

I liked the book. The plot was pretty simple and easy to understand but at the end of the book, I was confused. The ending was quite confusing but I didn’t bother to read it again. The story is told in Adam’s and Whitney’s point of view which helped add a lot of sense and tension in the book. I wished the chemistry between Adam and Whitney was constantly there because at some point, it faded. Like, it was a little disappointing compared to the synopsis. I thought the time they were going to spend together was going to be more than one.single.night…but, I loved the rest of the story especially because it wasn’t only focused on the romance but also on the characters’ lives, friends, jobs and day-to-day things. Recommend this…because it’s sweet.

What I Plan To Read Next:


Movies Watched:

  • Shadow and Bone (Season 1 – Netflix)
See the source image

Okay, I think this is like my favourite movie because:

  1. Milo
  2. Jesper being hit by a book David threw at him
  3. And Jesper being an absolute showoff
  4. Whatever cute thing going on between Ivan and Feydor
  5. KAZ AND INEJ—I can’t breathe…
  6. The Darkling
  7. Whatever scene with Alina or The Darkling using their powers
  8. I love love love the books…*chokes*
  10. *me shipping the Darkling and Alina like if I don’t, I’ll drop dead on the spot*
  11. shoo Mal but Malina is softening me a little…
  • Frozen 1 (Disney)

*cries in nostalgia* My favourite moviee! It was great to watch it again…the feels come onnn…I have nothing to say…just chef’s kiss

  • Frozen 2 (Disney)
See the source image
Source: imdb.com

Did Disney actually come up with such a brilliant plot? Like that’s amazing! I want a Frozen 3 as much as I want Jesper and Milo to reunite…I loved the new autumnal atmosphere in this movie especially watching it for the first time in forever…it is like not possible (according to the too-clever-fox ”when people say impossible, they usually mean improbable”) for me not to consider that as one of my favourite movies of all time.

  • Mulan 1 (Disney)

All I know is that the Captain acts a bit like a prick in this movie but the rest is P.E.R.F.E.C.T.I.O.N.

  • Mulan 2 (Disney)
  • Rapunzel (Disney)

Moral of the story: A frying pan is your greatest friend.

  • The Lion King (Disney)
  • Simba’s Pride (The Lion King 2 – Disney)
  • The Lion King 1 1/2 (Disney)

Tell me something…how come that this is way better than movie 1 and 2?

Life Update:

Like, I would care to sum up a chaotic month in bullet points…😂

Music I Listened To:

Look look, let’s just say that I listened to way too much Taylor Swift, created a sad songs playlist on Spotify, chilled to a classical piano and violin playlist and listened to a Taylor’s Version Six of Crows playlist….and just add Selena Gomez to that chaotic mix.

Lemme just add a few songs you have to listen to because I’m currently obsessed over them:

  • Dancing With Your Ghost by Sasha Alex Sloan
  • IDK You Yet by Aleksander 23
  • Black Hole (Acoustic Version) by Griff
  • If The World Was Ending by JP Saxe and Julia Michaels
  • Love and War by Fleurie
  • Arcade (Acoustic Version) by Duncan Laurence
  • The Joker And The Queen by Ed Sheeran
  • Photograph by Ed Sheeran
  • Back To December by Taylor Swift
  • Where’s My Love (Piano and Viola Version) by SYML
  • Gone by Rosé
  • I’ll Be Okay by Shawn Mendes

December Goals Review:

  • Read one book and make sure it is good enough to finish off your Goodreads challenge of 50 books…that is an order.✅
  • Revise French.✅
  • Go do some Algebra.❌
  • Complete that art homework. It has been sitting around for nearly a month and if there is partial lockdown doesn’t mean you have to keep it to the last minute…❌
  • Go and drink a cup of coffee if you want to but make sure you aren’t caught.✅

January Goals:

  • Go and read some books.
  • Follow your online classes and don’t fool around.

Just imagine when my own self is so irresponsible that my own self has to discipline her. *huffs*

Other than that, hope you had a lovely December…yeah yeah…I’m waiting for you to say something down in the comments…How’s your January going btw?

Spelling is fun,


The Sunshine Blogger Award #4

Well, if you found yourself here…um…Hope your December is going great. Okay, that is a terrible introduction so I’ll just get on with what this post is supposed to be about…The Sunshine Blogger Award.

Great many thanks to Inky here who tagged me for this award. The blogger behind Sosoorna’s Boring Blog. Go spread some sunshine guys!

What is The Sunshine Blogger Award?

(yeah, I know you’ve all read it countless times…)

The Sunshine Blogger Award is given to those who are creative, positive and inspiring while spreading sunshine to the blogging community.

The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award in your post and/or in your blog.

Inky’s Questions:

 1. Do you have a pet? What pet? Whats his/her name?

Actually…we have plenty of fish. 2 koi fish (2 died) and more than a dozen teeny guppies. I really have to give them a name…

2. If you could be one mythical creature(Like elf, demigod, witch, dragon..) which would you be?

Demigod looks way too grand for me so I’d settle for a witch. Probably a Grisha Heartrender? Or maybe an Etherialki??? Or a Tailor like Genya?? Oh I don’t mind as long as I am not a Sun Summoner, sunrays give me headaches by the way.

Or how about a time traveller?? I’ll be able to spook children with the day they are dying…

3. Describe your dream pet.

For now, I’d rather eat some cake…because I don’t know yet…

I have had this blog since 2 years but only ACTUALLY started blogging since June of 2021.

 5. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

And don’t go do that…

Did you just ask that?? Well, the answer is my eyesight so I wouldn’t have to wear glasses.

6. What’s the last book you read?

Actually, it is You Can Go Your Own Way by Eric Smith. A very snowy contemporary with bestfriends-to-enemies-to-kinda friends-to-potential lovey dovey couple…I liked it.

7. What’s currently in your blog drafts?

Volcra. To be honest…I find them interesting creatures.

It is all up to you to believe it or not…

11. Do you like my blog? What is your favourite thing about my blog? How did you find my blog?

I think I did mention that when Inky interviewed me :). And I found your blog when you followed me first I think?? I have a habit of checking all the blogs of bloggers who follow me and most of the time follow them back.

Now the people I nominate…god, I have two more awards to go and I have to save some people for the next so only 5 nominees for today…

My Questions:

  1. What are your Top 3 Christmas movies and/or books?
  2. Is there a song you used to love but now hate because of the insane amount of times you’ve listened to it?
  3. What is that one book you will never get tired of reading over and over again?
  4. What is a weird/unique talent you have?
  5. Is there a VERY unpopular opinion you have on a very famous book ?

Oh and yes, you don’t actually HAVE to do it if you don’t want to but just know that I’d love to read your answers! And anyone else who wants to do the tag…the gate is open you know…you just have to pass through…

Now, I’ve got to go complete the other awards and tags, and catch up on book reviews…I am awfully behind in posts already…*scoffs*

SO BYE! For now at least…I have many things I have to catch up on…

BTW, I am just currently obsessed with I Did Something Bad by Taylor Swift…the amount of energy and ”badassery” in this song…is just insane. The amazing amount of build-up before the iconic ‘I did something bad…’

Just amazing…

Wrap Up #October2021

A gif to explain this October:

You can blame school for it…*exhales dramatically* but I did a lot of nice things to. I took probably more than fifty flower pictures. And they actually turned out good. I love going into the garden and taking pictures. Have to do that again sometime…

Total number of books read: 4 (read my ”Life Update”…the second one:)

The Scorpio Illusion by Robert Ludlum (Thriller)

My Ratings: 2.5/5 (kind of regret buying this book to be honest…)

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

The plot was actually really good. I guess this could have been better if it would have been written by another author. There was a lot of unnecessary details and conversation in there. Like, it went way too fast. And some things fell a little out of place. There are much better books out there…like the Scorpios were some sort of secret organization…is that all?? Like I want to know more. You could have added that to the book instead of the unnecessary paragraphs…? This book would have had so much potential had it been written by another author. Quite disappointed. Expected more.

What I Plan To Read Next:

Something light probably. Some contemporary perhaps. I will have exams soon in December (yep…in December because Covid loves messing up things) and I am already a little stressed…

Life Update:

  • I have been in a bit of a reading slump I guess. My mind was just everywhere and school is just deciding to settle permanently on my back, or rather on my head; because my brain is trying to escape but it cannot.
  • I actually read 4 books. The Scorpio Illusion and the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy…(shh…I am still twelve…) but…I think it gets a three out of five. It was just that I don’t need that many scenes every ten pages thank you. You better shut up now. I was just curious…
  • I took many pictures of flowers from our garden. And I think they turned out pretty good. Here are some of them:

(the pictures are NOT to be used without my permission)

It looks much nicer in my blog page you know…I don’t think the collage shows in the WordPress reader…


Music I Listened To:

  • Reputation by Taylor Swift (full album)
  • Speak Now by Taylor Swift (full album)
  • Folklore by Taylor Swift (full album)
  • Stay by BLACKPINK [when you realize the meaning of this song..]
  • Hope Not by BLACKPINK [..just find the English version…I’ll cry]
  • You Never Know by BLACKPINK
  • On The Ground by Rosé
  • Gone by Rosé [listen to this…please. It is all in English and it is just so beautiful. The lyrics I can’t-]
  • Money by Lisa

You have to listen to those songs. I absolutely loved them…especially the BLACKPINK ones…it is a shame they don’t make anymore like these now…they are literally one of their best songs😔. Like the ones where it makes you actually feel the song.

October Goals Review:

  • Read more than 5 books. ❌
  • Find a miraculous way to balance life, school and blogging. THAT MEANS I HAVE TO POST AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK! ❌
  • Don’t close my eyes while riding a bike the next time. ✅

November Goals:

  • Hey you idiot, just breathe okay…I know you have got Bharatanatyam exam and Alliance Française and your second term exams are starting at the beginning of December…just breathe…oh and 2 presentations.
  • Read more than 3 books.
  • Catch up on book reviews.
  • Breathe.
  • Live.

Oh well, I guess I’d better go now…because I have 2 presentations to do, practice Bharatanatyam and revise the theory for the exam, study French for Alliance Francaise exam and catch up on the reviews. That is a lot to do.

Did I mention that I have to do a presentation on my favourite book?? I was planning on doing it on Six of Crows. Definitely not Harry Potter. My friends totally put me off that idea. Not Sorcery of Thorns, the subject gets really close to one of my fictional crushes. Not Shadow and Bone; gets too close to the fictional crush thing and I might start crying…Not Fable…I have no idea what to say. Least why I even love this book. Not Game of Thrones; it isn’t for my age and if the teacher has read this book (she read Harry Potter and she might have read Game of Thrones), that would be embarrassing. And I might start rambling why George R.R Martin shouldn’t kill Jon Snow…

So let us just settle with Six of Crows. I just have to pretend I am making a review and just make it interactive. *deep breathing* It isn’t as easy as it seems to be. I dreamt I went to do the Alliance Francaise exam and I hadn’t even revised at all. And you had all this advanced stuff…

So Swifties and those who loved the Six of Crows duology, I just thought of… something…👁👄👁

This is probably crazy of me but this thing has been bugging me since a few days…

If you are a Swiftie, then you definitely know that song called No Body No Crime.

If you are a Swiftie and don’t know this song…a real shame…IT IS RIGHT THERE IN YOUTUBE.😑

Let us continue…

If you have read Six of Crows, then you definitely know the famous line…No Mourners No Funerals (I have it as my Whatsapp profile picture🙂🔪 don’t you dare tell anyone…)

Well, coming to the point…doesn’t No Body No Crime sound like something the Crows would say???

…or it could probably just be my imagination…

Wow. All this valuable rubbish at the beginning just to write the above paragraph.

Ooh…valuable rubbish…found a new nickname for my two best-friends…😏

I’d better be off now, I have to go and think if posting this was a good idea or not.

…and does Six of Crows have a fandom name?? It should have one…
