Hellooooo! How’s it going guys? How was your week? Mine’s been really great, I’ll tell you all about it. I hope you have a great one too. 🙂

On the blog

I’m on a review-writing slump this week 😦 I don’t feel like writing reviews and my reading pace has gone REALLY slow. I’ve been reading the same book for almost two weeks now. I don’t want to take a hiatus again so I’m really trying my best to write the best reviews I can possibly write. I’m trying new techniques in writing, like writing the review in paper first before typing it in the computer. I also write key words/ ideas sometimes and then build a paragraph on it.

I really wish this writing slump will go away soon 😦 I’ll still try my best to post reviews as frequently as I can in the following week.

In my life

Last night I went to my best friend’s house to celebrate her 18th birthday. I really enjoyed the party, we also sang karaoke! I love karaoke even though, let’s be honest here, I can’t carry a tune. My voice is really horrible even to my own ear but what the heck I really enjoy singing at the top of my lungs. 😀

Tomorrow is my 18th birthday and I’m going to treat myself to books of course! And pizza! And cake! I have a valid reason to pig out tomorrow because it’s my birthdaaaaay! 😀

Still Reading

code name verity books keep me sane

Code Name: Verity by Elizabeth Wein

I’ve been reading Code Name: Verity for almost two weeks now. I do like the story but I barely have time to read right now 😦

  1. I’ve been in a writing slump too! Happy Birthday! Mine is this month too!! May 17th 🙂 I’ve heard Code Name Verity is a great book! Hopefully it will help with the reading part of the slump. Have a great week!

  2. Try this: 1. put the book down 2. step away from the book 3. go pick up a book from a completely different genre

    You’re not DNF’ing it, just setting it aside for a bit. If you don’t fly thru the other book, then still, don’t sweat it!!!!! This is a hobby, right?!?!?!?!?! We are so hard on ourselves!

    I usually use novellas and short stories to get me in the mood to read again but I know a lot of people don’t like short stories.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! The BIG 18!!! Soooo exciting! I hope you enjoy it and please eat a piece of cake for me, extra frosting!!!

  3. Happy birthday and good luck with the slump. I’ve seen a few bloggers talking about reading or writing slumps, so seems to be going around. I’ve been reading a particular book on and off for a couple weeks too, it’s a popular one but I’m just not super enthused about it. Or maybe it’s the change of seasons interfering with my reading! 🙂 Anyway have a good week.

  4. I am glad you will be celebrating your birthday because only readers 18 and over are allowed to visit my blog and when I first saw that you were visiting a BF who had just turned 18 I said, oh well, cute blog but she won’t be old enough to visit!” And now you will be!

  5. Oh happy Birthday!! 🙂 I wish you all the best! I really hope you’ll have a great time. I hope you’ll finish Code Name Verity too. Great post 🙂

  6. I just had a reviewing slump as well! And the more I postponed writing the reviews, the worse I felt and it just caused me to cringe even more when it came to writing a review. 😀 I would just suggest that take it slow – write a short review and see if it inspires you. The first one is always the most difficult one. 🙂 Happy reading (and reviewing) and have a great Sunday!
