May Wrap-Up & Favorites
Source: personal collection

Hi fellow readers! It's the beginning of June and I'm trying to post my wrap-up on time. I think I did it this time. In the beginning of May, I took a leave from work for a week (which is a lot for me) because of the Islamic holiday. I also went to my hometown and stayed for a month. Since I was at home, I was hoping to finish some of my TBR that's been sitting on my book shelf for at least 2 years. But it didn't happen because I spent most of my time hanging out with my sister. At least I caught up on my book reviews and I managed to finish 2 books and 2 graphic novels from my TBR so I'd say that May was productive. Anyway, here's the list of books I read in May.

Hi fellow readers! In April I participated in magical readathon hosted by G over on YouTube. Because of the readathon, I read more books than I usually did this year which is a good thing. I read books that have been on my TBR list for so long and end up liking them. So without further ado, here's the list of books I read in April.

March Wrap-Up & Favorites
Source: personal collection

You know, I had plans for March. The first week of March has two public holiday during which I planned on spending the days by baking, reading, and catching up on blog writing. But guess what? I got Covid-19. True, I got two weeks off from work but I wasn't asymptomatic. The first week, all I did was lying in bed and do occasional browsing through my phone because my throat and my head was killing me. I got fever for I don't remember exactly how many days because when I thought my temp has come down, the next hour it rose up again. I live alone far from home so I had to handle it by myself. Not going to lie there were times when I thought of just lying still in bed and stop taking the meds altogether. The second week, I was recovering while trying to catch up on work because I was so far behind. The amount of unread emails on my inbox was terrifying. After two freaking years avoiding the virus, it finally got me.

February 2022 Wrap-Up & Favorites

February Wrap-Up & Favorites
Source: personal collection

Hi fellow readers! I'm late on the game again. I know it's already April but I still want to share what I read & watched in February. In February I watched a lot of Japanese films because of Japanese Film Festival Indonesia. I actually binge-watched those films and end up watching 16 out of 20 films. Almost all of them are good. Only 2 out of 16 are just meh, but even one of them is alright because I like the lead actor. Two films in particular stay with me even after I finished watching it which I mention in February's favorite.
