Monthly Recap : September ’20

Does anyone feel like time move faster and faster these days? I’ve now begin to think that 24 hours a day is not enough. Ever since this semester started back in August, I’ve been trying to catch up on my undergrad thesis, and September is no different. There are zero days that I didn’t open my laptop to do it (yes, even on Sunday), and it made me so stressful. I’ve been trying to meditate to calm things down, so if you have any tips or books about meditating/self-help I’d greatly appreciate it

On a less stressful note, I finally got a kindle! I usually read e-books on my phone, but since online learning started I’ve been staring at my laptop too often and my eyes hurt. Having a kindle definitely make reading easier. I highly recommend it if you’re thinking of getting it!

It seems like I’m back on my k-drama phase. This month, I finished Hwarang and Save Me, and now I’m making my way through Mr. Sunshine. Save Me is pretty interesting, and I recommend it if you like thriller/mystery drama (though the first few episodes are a bit slow. Things started to get interesting once they got involved with the cult, though!). Hwarang, on the other hand, started pretty good but it end up being my least favorite k-drama this year. I’m honestly so frustrated at the main characters, not to mention the ridiculous romance (and to be honest this drama would’ve been better without it). As for Mr. Sunshine, I still have around 6 episodes left but I think it’s going to be my favorite k-drama this year!! It’s SO good and I really recommend it (have I mentioned that one of the MC is a noblewoman in 1890s Korea who’s also a female sniper? 👀).

This month, I posted 4 posts :

Review :
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas (4/5 stars)
The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi (4/5 stars)

Other :
Monthly Recap : August ’20
Tiffany’s Fall TBR

I only finished 4 books this month, and here they are :

Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles – 2.5/5 stars
The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi – 4/5 stars
You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson – 4/5 stars
The Invisible Life of Addie Larue by V.E. Schwab – 5/5 stars

My favorite is definitely The Invisible Life of Addie Larue! It’s not exactly like I’d expected, and yet it’s still captivating. My review will be up in a few days, so please check it out ❤

How’s your September? Any exciting news? How many books did you read?

  1. I have Mr. Sunshine on my list but it seems heavier than other k-dramas so I’ve been saving it for when I’m really in the mood. Aaah hang in there with thesis! My deadline is tomorrow so September has been crazy, but at least it’s going to be over soon! I think I’m going to celebrate by watching Suspicious Partner, I need some rom-coms ❤

  4. I would love to get a Kindle, but I don’t know if saving for one is possible for me right now, I’ve been having so many expenses lately )): I mostly postpone it because I can always read on my phone, but staring at screens for so long is extremely tiring. I hope your classes and thesis have been going well! And that you have a lovely October! I’m planning on reading Addie LaRue soon, so I’m happy to know you’ve loved it!! ❤
