Was June even real? Be honest.
It felt like the month happened in a blur. But I guess that can be blamed on the fact that my mental health wasn’t so great! It also felt like I was doing so many things but also nothing at the same time? I’m doing things, like reading and writing and blogging, but it all feels so pointless.
Anyways, I’m going to take this opportunity to remind you to be keeping up with current events, sharing resources, and donating if you can! I’ve been including BLM resources in my posts but I also want to bring attention to Palestine: donate to these orgs, educate yourself, share resources.

The awards are back again!!
I’m so excited to be hosting the Book Blogger Awards again this year, and I can’t wait to see all the blogger love and appreciation start pouring in! But before we dive into the specifics, I have a few short announcements:
First of all, as I mentioned earlier: this year, I have a co-host, who is none other than my absolutely lovely friend Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books! I was so honored that she said yes to my offer, because she’s someone I look up to so much, and also a blogger who has the same passion as I do for supporting other bloggers.
Second of all, we’re implementing some new changes/limitations in order to make this year’s awards better than last year’s! Hopefully, this means more bloggers will get the love. So please pay attention to all the rules to make sure you don’t miss anything!
Finally, this year Kat @ Novels and Waffles was able to make some stunning graphics for us, so all of the logos, promo images, etc. are all by her!! Please go follow her blog, commission her, and give her some love because she deserves it all.

Welcome back to me being a nerd!!
I really love making goals and checking them off, though I like to pretend like I never achieve my goals. For once I will practice some self-love and say that… I do!! Occasionally!!
Today I’m checking in with the 2020 goals I made at the beginning of the year, and seeing if I’m on track or not! I completely forgot what any of goals were until I did my post, which shows how I lack organization and/or any memory, and it was a surprise to see some of these (especially the ones where I was Definitely way too confident in myself).

Hi, it’s been a month.
If you’ve been paying attention to the news or social media at all within the last few days, Black lives Matter protests have been taking place to demand justice for the murder of George Floyd and countless other Black people at the hands of the police. Please go ahead and unfollow me if you disagree with BLM, ACAB, or the protests happening right now—it’s honestly best for the both of us!
I have a platform on this blog, and I think it’s very important that I use it. Please do not stay silent on these matters, now and in the future, and make sure to be actively anti-racist every single day. Here is a list of different things you can do right now:

Did April even happen? Was it actually real?
April honestly felt like it lasted .2 minutes. I haven’t left the house in a over a month at this point (7 weeks going on 8 baby!!) and I’m pretty okay with that. But it truly does feel like only yesterday I started doing online school, and I can’t believe it’s already been over a month that things started getting really serious in the US!
Today I’ll be wrapping up what happened in April, including a very average reading month, a very above average writing month, and gay Thai dramas!!
