My Non-Bookish Favorites of 2020 (part two) // music, k-dramas, and some questions for you

My mind won’t let me post anything else until I get this second part of my 2020 non-bookish favorites out of the way 😅.

Here’s part one if you want more random entertainment recommendations!

But first, I have some questions for you!

are you the person on the left or right…? that’s for you to decide lol.

Reading for the Sake of Content // some honest thoughts from blogging over the years

Happy new year, again! Cue the yearly reading challenges, resolutions, and pledges to read more!

NY resolutions from january 1-30 🥳

Maybe not, though.

This year, we all seem to want the universe to please cut us a break. It appears that many people have taken the initiative to carve out some guilt-free, time for rest in the upcoming months, and for some avid readers, this means cutting down on how many books we’re aiming to read by 2022. 

Although I personally don’t plan on scaling back my reading this year—there’s only so much reading my “slow-reader” butt can cut down on before I’m not reading anything 😅—the idea of slowing down how much literature I’m consuming brings to mind a question I ask myself often: how much do I read for the sake of content for my blog and YouTube channel?

Non-Bookish Favorites of 2019 (Part One) // from internet links to trips!

I’m in a reading slump.

This time it’s not because I’m not interested in reading or haven’t been able to start a good book (I’ve actually been reading Feed by Mira Grant on and off for the past two weeks, and I really like it so far!). Lately, I’ve been more interested in other hobbies and life things (cause binge-watching TV shows is totally a hobby).

¡FUN GAME! take a shot every time you read “bookish” 🥂 in this post!!

Since I haven’t been in the bookish mindset, I thought it would be fun to share some of the non-bookish things I’ve been enjoying this year. If you’re like, “ᴛʜɪs ɪs ɴᴏᴛ ᴡʜᴀᴛ ɪ sɪɢɴᴇᴅ ᴜᴘ ғᴏʀ, ʙᴇʟʟᴇ—ɪ ᴇxᴘᴇᴄᴛ ᴍᴇᴅɪᴏᴄʀᴇ, ɪʀʀᴇɢᴜʟᴀʀʟʏsᴄʜᴇᴅᴜʟᴇᴅ ʙᴏᴏᴋɪsʜ ᴄᴏɴᴛᴇɴᴛ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ɪ ᴄᴀɴ sᴄʀᴏʟʟ ᴘᴀsᴛ!,” then let me redirect you to My Favorite Books of 2019 (Part 1) post (also, friend, that was so aggressive and unnecessary 😭).
