On the blog
It’s been a while since my last Sunday Post. Even though I am mostly preoccupied with academics, I still try to squeeze review-writing on my busy schedule. I gotta admit though, I am really behind my blog schedule. Last month, I wasn’t able to do any Freebie Friday! I feel bad because I know you’re all excited about what bookish stuff I will be giving away.
So, to make it up to you, I will have two Freebie Friday this month plus a Freebie Friday Special Edition sponsored by an author. I won’t announce yet who that author yet but you’ll find out soon. For the next three Fridays I will be giving away bookish stuff so keep checking back.
In my life
I have eight classes and seven out of those require that I submit a class project at the end of October not to mention the oral defense for my thesis is also in October. College life is killing me. Aside from that, I have a blog to run, books to read and review. And oh, I added another torture to myself: I started writing (yet another) manuscript. I’m really hoping I can finish this manuscript this time.
My daily class schedule varies from day to day but here’s my routine:
7:30 AM to 7:30 PM – Some of my class start at as early as 7:30, others start at 1 PM. During these times I am on the uni campus attending classes while reading a book during my spare time
7:30 PM to 8:30 PM – Dinner time
8:30 PM to 12:00 MN – Studying for the next day’s quiz/ exams; writing blog posts and book reviews; writing my manuscript
8:30 PM onward is the only time I can focus on things that has to do with writing and though I want more time I have no choice but to make do with my busy schedule.
Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger
This book has been sitting on my TBR list for SO long now and I am glad to have finally started it. This is my first ever steampunk novel and even though it’s categorized as YA I feel like the “atmosphere” of the book is more Middle Grade.
