Monthly Wrap-Up

October Wrap Up

Hey everyone! This month was surely the longest one ever because, whew, I did so much somehow! I submitted midterm assignments for all my courses and gave an exam as well as read 9 books? I feel like such a productive person now! I mean, I kind of flaked on my blog for a week or so, but it’s okay considering everything else, or even if it totally isn’t, I’m trying to cut myself some slack and this is how I do it, especially because I’m back now and that is surely a win!

Without any more ramblings from me, let’s dive in!

BOOKS READ:

You Had Me At Hola by Alexis Daria

This was such a cute romance with two telenovela stars who are trying to figure out what they are and what they want to do! You can see my review for it here.

Technically, You Started It by Lana Wood Johnson

I loved the format of this book and listening to its audiobook was a lot of fun! It was a fun, relaxed book.

Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon

This was a cute enemies to lovers romance which amazing characters! I loved how the book progressed and they learned more about each other.

The Poppy War by RF Kuang

This was an intense book and whew, I don’t know what to say except it was great!

Unicorn Hunting by AR Hellbender

I didn’t like this book much – it just was not for me.

Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli

This was a cute romance centred around important themes, which I really appreciated reading about and understanding how one can grow and learn and change.

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

A thrilling and mesmerising story which I couldn’t seem to be able to put down

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

A cute enemies to lovers office romance with witty banter and a lot of tension!

99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne

Another amazing romance by Sally Thorne with a kind of forbidden romance vibe? I also loved that the protagonist had a heart disease and seeing how it was dealt with although I didn’t like the actual MC all that much ;-;

The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai

This is one of the cutest book ever – there’s a lot of trust issues and miscommunication which kind of annoyed me but they’re also very realistic when you think about it so it was a good read!

Take A Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert

Fake-dating slow burn romances are exactly what I like so you can guess what I thought about this book

Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey

Another fake-dating romance with a sort of forbidden romance streak in there. I especially loved this one for some reason, well, probably the narrator’s voice.

WHAT I DID IN OCTOBER:

October was a loooong month because I had mid semester exams and lots of mid semester assignments and it just took a lot out of me because while I was expecting it, I also wasn’t expecting it to be as hard as it actually was.

I did have a few fun days as I met up with one of my friends for the first time since lockdown began and it was great! I also went to my grandparent’s house for a couple of days and we played cards and had a lot of fun! It was also my brother’s birthday so we had a bit of fun that day too!

PLANS FOR NOVEMBER

November is going to be a very hectic month – I already have quite a few assignments lined up due in November and November is also the festival season this year because Diwali, one of the biggest festivals I celebrate, falls right in the middle of it and well, that always takes a lot out of me.

We never really do anything particularly ‘big’ for Diwali so it will be the same as always, despite Covid, which is getting my first family and a group of close friends but it’s 4-5 days of constant socialising and that is just too much for an introvert and anxious person such as me.
