Goodbye 2018: The End of Year Book Survey, ft. Favorite Books, Disappointing Reads, and Stats and Graphs!!

[screams] I LOVE WRITING THESE POSTS SO MUCH!!!

Every time it’s the end of the year I get so excited because I know I’m going to be able to write these super fun, amazing book wrap-ups. I mean, formatting all the book covers is a pain, but talking about my year??? In books???? So good.

Today I’m linking up with the amazing End of Year Book Survey by The Perpetual Page Turner and answering a bunch of questions about my 2018 in books! (Not doing all the questions, though, because this post is already SUPER long.) I’ll also be talking about some reading stats that I kept track of by myself, with the help of some graphs!!

(Shh I know it’s not the end of the year anymore but it still counts!!!)

UPDATE: This post ended up taking about 5 hours to make and I am exhausted please show this post and ME some love I feel dead.

Goodbye 2018: My Most Favorite and Least Favorite Moments of the Year!

So, it’s the end of the year, which means…

A bunch of year-end wrap-up posts that I couldn’t be more excited about!

This is the first post in my series Goodbye 2018, and I always enjoy writing up these types of posts! They’re so much fun for me and I love reflecting over the year and it makes me nostalgic, I guess.

Today, I’ll be talking about my favorite and least favorite moments of the year. Might get a little sappy, might get a little depressed. Maybe both. Who knows.

Ranting About and Boosting All My Favorite Book Bloggers: Part 2!

Welcome back to the last post in my favorite blogger feature “series”!

I call it a series, but it’s literally just two posts.

Anyways, here’s part 2 in my round of shoutouts of my favorite bloggers and I’m sad that these are all the favorites I have!! I’m definitely making it a goal for 2019 to branch out more and find some more amazing book bloggers, because I know you’re out there!

Also, last time I did this, everyone’s comments made me tear up?? Stop. I’M the one who’s supposed to make you cry. Why is it happening to ME.

Disclaimer: 1) If you’re not mentioned here, I obviously still love you and you are amazing and you definitely aren’t a “bad blogger” or anything of the sort!! and 2) all the bloggers mentioned are in randomized order—as in I literally put names in an online randomizer—so there is no favoritism whatsoever <33

Ranting About and Boosting All of My Favorite Book Bloggers: Part 1!

One of my favorite things to do is to boost other bloggers.

And I’ve been wanting to do this kind of thing for a while now, and I’ve seen so many amazing blog tags floating around where you promote other bloggers, but I’ve decided to wait until now (my birthday month, because I’m sappy like that) to give shoutouts to my favorite bloggers!

Getting sweet messages from people telling me they love my blog just means the world to me, and I love making others feel the same way as well. Plus, a lot of these bloggers I’ve become close friends with, and I love boosting and supporting them in anyway I can!

So without further ado, since this is going to be one of two long posts in this mini-series, here are some of my favorite book bloggers!

ARC Review: Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan // The Beautiful, Brutal Book of My Sapphic Asian Heart

You know those books that you’re so full of love for that you just feel like you could burst?

Girls of Paper and Fire is one of those books. It’s an absolutely beautiful book, with the best themes and messages. It has a stunning cover, a gorgeous romance, and an intricately crafted world.

But while I love it for all of that, I love it for so much more: the fact that it’s a story about two queer, sapphic Asian girls, fighting against all odds for themselves and for each other. And as a queer, sapphic Asian myself, this book means so much to me.
