Hi guys! Sorry I’ve been completely MIA in the last few weeks, but there have been some pretty huge changes recently like me moving to ENGLAND! Yass!
I’m currently doing a semester abroad in Brighton, England and I want to use this blog as a platform to talk about my experiences during the semester. I will still mainly talk about books, but don’t be surprised when every now and then I post something about my experience here.
Now that I’m completely settled, and classes started again (THANK GOD) I want to start posting at least once a week. We’ll see if I can keep up…
Now that that’s out of the way, we can start with January’s wrap up! His past month I read the great quantity of 2 books!
The poppy War by R.F. Kuang. I didn’t really enjoy this book, it was kind of long and I felt like it dragged in some parts and rushed in others. I felt no connection to any the characters, especially the main character, Rin, who I thought kept making rushed dumb decisions. Moreover, when I first picked it up, I was aware that there were trigger warning for rape, genocide and assault, but I didnt think it would affect me as much as it did. I had to actually take a break from reading the book before I finished it. Rating: 3 Stars
Adulthood is a Myth by Sarah Andersen. This is a funny, realistic and relatable graphic novel that portrays situations we all go through when we reach the beginnings of adulthood. I related to so many of the cartoons in this book in so many different levels, it made me realized I’m not alone in this world. Rating: 5 Stars
Thank you all for reading and I hope you stick around for what’s to come! Comment bellow if there are any specific thing you wasn’t me to talk about.
