Okay. So I’ve realised that the majority of my wrapups begin with: “this was a different/strange/weird month for me.” And all the months are, because this life is different and strange and weird! So if I had a great reading month it would be a weird month, essentially.
So this month I had an… umm… a great month in all senses but reading, ehe.
I read nine books this month.
A Study in Scarlet & The Sign of Four (Arthur Conan Doyle) – 4 // 5
Hiroshima (John Hersey) – 5 // 5
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Arthur Conan Doyle) – 4 // 5
Slice (Steven Herrick) – 1 // 5
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (Arthur Conan Doyle) – 4 // 5
These Broken Stars (Amie Kaufman) – 5 // 5
Spindle (E.K. Johnston) – 2 // 5
The Diabolic (S.J. Kincaid) – 3 // 5
Allegedly (Tiffany D. Jackson) – 5 // 5
about the books
I’m reading through my big heavy book of Sherlock Holmes stories! I also read a few books from the library, which I definitely have mixed feelings about. One of them was absolutely fabulous (These Broken Stars), and the others were a bit mehhh.
I also realised how much I love Amie Kaufman. I’ve read three books of hers now, and I think … I think I’m in love with her writing and sassy characters … I just can’t get enough!
I joined twitter! Check me out here!
Also I really need to take bookstagram pictures ehe ehe ahhh.
in other news
This month was very busy and lowkey weird. I saw six one act plays, competed in four eisteddfods, and was sick for a week over my birthday.
The fact that I was sick for a week took a chunk out of my reading schedule. It was over my birthday too, and not being able to leave the house on your sixteenth birthday lowkey sucks. But it was okay in the end, because I was so surprised by my lovely friends who gave me food and best wishes and much much love! So in the end I felt very blessed.
I also finished up my university unit! So I’m just focusing on year 11 now, which is both great and a pain. Next year I’ll start a tafe course on the side, though, which should be good.
There were lots of happy things this month! (being sick on my birthday isn’t one of them though ehe)
- feeling so blessed by friends!! Like what?? They like me?? And buy me food?? What??
- An adventure to the shops with a dear fren xx
- my birthday aha (because BOOKS)
- A friend’s birthday! Which was so much fun and created many memories which I will treasure.
- Seeing many plays and performing a little and getting immersed in theatre again!
- Going to the op-shop and actually finding nice clothes?? That I will wear?? I love
- Just feeling generally looked after and loved by friends xx
Soooo that was my month! A bit different, and bit strange, just like all of my months.
What was your month like?
