The Pancake Book Tag that Makes Me Hungry (Yes Hello I’m Back)

Hello, I’m back!!!

Sorry for disappearing on you guys for a week!! Be prepared for this to happen more often as I drown in schoolwork. My teachers love to shove a bunch of work at me all at once, and then I have breaks in between all the huge workloads (which is how I’m now able to write this blog post!).

I’m still not quite sure how I’m going to balance blogging with everything, because I’ve clearly been struggling, but it’s fine I’ll just die!!! I’m not confident in my ability to come back if I take a longer hiatus, so I’m gonna keep trying to stay on top of everything, but c’est difficile et je suis désolée!

I thought for my first post “back” (I sound dramatic because I AM), I’d do something fun and easy that I’ve been meaning to do a while: The Pancake Book Tag! I think I’ve been tagged a few times for this one, but I was also first tagged by the creator, Becky @ Blogs of a Bookaholic. Be sure to check out Becky and her blog, because she’s an absolute angel!!

May’s Moments of the Month: August // I Hate School but What Else is New (and I’m Still in a Reading Slump)

For once, the month did NOT fly by!

This is most likely due to the fact that I had to return to HELL (synonymous with school) and it felt like each day just dragged by. I don’t even know if the amount of work I get is normal or not, because my school is an IB school, and I’ve heard that high school was actually harder than college for some of the graduates. So uh. That’s great for me.

And I thought that since I my reading slump started during summer when I had no school, I would magically un-slump when I went back to school, but NO. Reverse psychology only works against you apparently!!

How Do I Rate the Books I Read?: A Look at My Rating System and What I Look for in a Book!!

I’m a really indecisive, not confident person.

And this means I struggle a lot with deciding ratings for books! Like a lot!! And so, in an effort to maybe help me decide on ratings more easily (and also to motivate me to READ), I’ve decided to tackle something I’ve been meaning to talk about for along time now: how I rate the books I read!!

I know there are a lot of people who don’t like to rate books, and that’s completely fine and understandable! I personally like ratings because I feel like it’s a way to quickly look back at my stance on the book, even though each rating will depend on the book of course!!

Like I said, I’ve wanted to write this for a long time now; I had it planned before I saw Marie @ Drizzle Hurricane Books talk about the same thing on her blog in November, and then I got inspired to do the same as she did with the cute little rating influence percentages. So make sure to check out Marie’s wonderful post as well!!

The 5 Most Disappointing Books I’ve Read So Far This Year (Happy National Book Lover Day)

It’s National Book Lover Day so naturally, it’s time for me to rant about disappointing books!

I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve been truly salty for a blog post, and that’s an issue. One day all my bitterness is going to explode from me and I’ll become a husk of dry despondency.

So today, I decided to talk about the 5 most disappointing books I’ve read in 2019 so far!! I forgot it was National Book Lover Day when I wrote this, but honestly I think it’s very fitting that I’d be salty about books on a day meant to celebrate loving books.

(Actually, though, the real reason behind me writing this post is that I tried to write two other blog posts and completely lost motivation for both of them, so I decided to go back to something that will never fail me: Ranting and being salty!! And it’s going to be FUN.)

Before I get on with it, I just wanted to say the biggest, most heartfelt THANK YOU, because I recently reached 2,000 followers on my blog, and… I don’t know how to describe how much that means to me. There are a lot of reasons why this particular milestone is so jaw-dropping to me, but in general, it just means the world to me that you guys support me and the work that I do. I love and appreciate you all endlessly!!!
