This week:

Sunday October 9 to Saturday October 14: What happened this week?

I’m soo excited to see what you and everyone else has in their post. So without further ado, heres mine.

Books I Read:

Honestly, October in general, hasn’t been great. I’ve been stressing over finding a job and looking for colleges for my grad studies. I’ve been finding it hard to sit down and read. However, I did manage to step up my game after last weeks failure. So I managed to read two books:

  • Us by David Nicholls
  • The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak

Reviews This Week:

New Discoveries:

Manga! I stumbled upon an app that allows me to read all sorts of manga online. This is a medium I’ve been thinking about exploring for some time. I read a few of them and I actually enjoyed it!

Goodreads Update:

I’m very excited about this! I completed my earlier 30/30 goal. So now I expanded to 40 books! I’m soo happy since I started this challenge less than halfway through the year.

Books Added To Virtual Shelf:

  • Legendary (Caraval, #2) by Stephanie Garber

Books Added To Physical Shelf:

Be proud of me!

I have exercised control!! I did not buy anything this week! Keeping with my vow to refrain from any book haul until I finish the majority of my TBR books.

Seeking Advice:

  • Since I started reading Manga. Should I post my reviews over them, or? I’m not really sure.
  • Should I also continue posting reviews over >> Dating Sims? 
  • Also, does Manga count as a book that I can add to my goodreads? Just double checking. They are kind of like short stories.

Announcement:   Participate in the new BLOG MEME!

  1. What is this manga reading app? 🙂
    Also, I have 40 Rules of Love on my TBR. Did you like it?
    Congrats on finishing your challenge!
    I did not buy anything this week either! Yay us!
    You should totally post your manga reviews 🙂 and of course it counts on goodreads.

    1. For now, I’m using MangaZone!

      40 rules of love was a bit tiring for me. Its the kind of book that is clearly teaching you something. But I kind of got the message halfway through and then I was over it. It just wasn’t my style.

      Thank you! Hows ur challenge going if ur participating in it? Also, I’ve been seeing alot more people resisting the urge to buy more books. It’s kinda freaking me out! LOL! whats happening to the world!


  2. I hope you get to read more in the coming weeks! I always feel weird when I haven’t been able to settle down and read.

    I always count manga and graphic novels in my Goodreads totals; people are interested in the reviews, and it balances out some of the chunky books that take ages!

    My STS.

    1. Thankyou! I’m hoping that once I get my life together, i’ll be able to read guilt free.
      And thnx for the advice on the manga! You’re totally right, it does balance out the bigger ones. It makes for a nice change of pace. 😀
