February Wrap-Up

Hey everyone! Another month is over and I just can not believe it. As we move into March, I am compiling all that happened in February over here!

OH, and oh my god! I AM AT 300 FOLLOWERS! Thank you all so much 🙂

 LIFE:

So, I had exams this month. I mean, already? What the hell? Does the school not understand that we are just children who just started off with Grade 12! But anyway, I somehow survived through them so it’s all good now! They’re over and what’s in the past remains in the past.

Thankfully, no exams in March so I can sit back and relax and focus more on my blog this month. 🙂

BOOKS READ THIS MONTH: 

  • Illuminae: 4 stars || This was a bit hard to get into at first but once I did, I loved it! It was such a great read and the end – oh my god.
  • A Very Large Expanse of Sea: 5 stars || This is everything I want from a YA book – a cute romance, some serious plot and also no unrealistic drama.
  • The Merchant of Venice: 3 stars || It was interesting, to say the least.
  • The Spec Set: 4 stars|| Ah, a really good book. I am so grateful for having received its ARC!
  • Crazy Rich Asians: 5 stars|| Wow. I just don’t know what to say. This is such an amazing book and I don’t know why I waited so long to read it.
