Hi everyone! It’s been been 15 days since I even visited my blog, and I honestly don’t even know what to say. Writing a blog post had been on my mind for a while, but about what? I haven’t been reading much, and I didn’t really have the inspiration to write something other than a review. Anyway, I decided I should at least post something, so here goes nothing.
This year–at least compared to last year–I’ve been reading more, but of course still not as much. I’ve read 6 books in 2018 so far:
- An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson–I LOVED this book so much. Even though it’s not for everyone, I loved the world and the writing and it’s my favorite out of the 6 books I’ve read so far. (5 stars)
- Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones–This was definitely a good book, but there were some things I didn’t quite love, so I gave it around 3.5 stars.
- Sinless (Eye of the Beholder) by Sarah Tarkoff & Book 2 in the Eye of the Beholder series–these two I read as sensitivity reads, so I won’t be reviewing/rating them for professional reasons.
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald–I read this for school, and honestly I don’t even know how to feel about it. At times I could be immersed in the story and enjoyed the writing, but other times, I was really confused. Regardless, it’s a classic, so I’m glad that I finally got the opportunity to read it.
Now–as for school. Obviously, as usual, it’s been taking up all of my time, but even more so than usual. And…it’s almost the end of junior year. I have basically three quarters left until I’m a second semester senior, and until then, I need to try my best. Lately it’s been really hard to motivate myself, but like I said, I’m just trying to trudge through.
…As for the things I’m excited about!
Ramadan is coming up, and so is the end of the school year!
Although fasting through APs and finals is going to be hard, I still generally love the feeling of Ramadan–staying up late, breaking my fast, and of course Eid. Also, Eid is on the last day of school this year so I’m really excited about that too.
In addition to Ramadan, in May and June, a bunch of books I’ve been waiting a while for are coming out. I probably won’t be able to get to them until school ends, but the two I’m most excited for are A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas and Save the Date by Morgan Matson.
Alright–I’m sorry for how terrible this post was. I honestly don’t know what I was trying to do, but I really need more inspiration and would appreciate it if anyone helped me out with that!
Thanks so much for reading,
