Monthly Wrap-Up: April 2019

Hi, everyone. First of all, I’m completely aware that we’re already in mid-May and it’s probably a bit too late to post a wrap-up. And second of all, I hesitated to write this post because I’ve been in the longest reading slump since March and I’m not proud of my readings from these past few weeks. But, I gotta say I did a pretty good job with my blog posts, especially last month (eh… hopefully?). 

Blog Posts

As for reviews, I posted one (first chapter) book review and one movie review last month. I participated in a massive blog tour with other 100+ bloggers which hosted by Dave @ The Write Reads for After the Green Withered by Kristin Ward. I also posted a review for Us (2019), one of my most anticipated movies for this year, especially since I’m a big fan of Get Out (2017). 

I’m also really excited about a new feature that I started last month, called Debut District. This feature is an appreciation towards debut authors and debut releases through fun, varied posts like interview, book blitz, listopia, review, and other related content. Last month, I published three posts for this feature and I feel quite proud because it’s also my first author interviews with as well!

As for other misc posts, such as memes, reading and watching updates, I post a few of those too. 

And last month was also quite special because one of my posts got featured as #blogoftheday on The Write Reads

Book Haul

I’ve been drowning in ARCs since March and it’s the main reason why I’m trying my best to control myself to not over-request last month. But, I’m glad to welcome these four books to my TBR, especially because they will be published over the next few months. Even one of them will be published next year! 

Read & Watched

Like I previously said, I’ve been in reading slump for a couple of months now, hence the reason why I read almost nothing last month. I tried to spark the excitement by reading tons of manga, but when it’s time to pick up a heavier book, I’m back to my slumping-mode, yet again. Sigh. But anyway, here are the two books that I finished in late March / early April along with a few of favorite manga from last month.

Things are probably a bit better with my watching. I watched a couple of movies and aside from Game of Thrones, I found my new favorite show, which is a Korean reality show called Korean Hostel in Spain! Surprise, surprise. This is completely new territory for me because I don’t even watch K-drama before. I think I’ll make another post about the show once it’s finished (?). I’m not sure yet, but I only watched a few first episodes of it and I’m already hooked!

Your turn! How’s last month going for you?


  1. Ohmigod. OHMIGOD OHMIGOD. VINNY!!! You read Your Letter??? I’m a bit behind on my GR reading challenge (which is only 12 books, can you believe me??? Sigh.) and watching movies too, but I’ve been watching classics like cardcaptor Sakura and Avatar: The Last Airbender the past weeks. I read Solitaire by Alice Oseman and… surprisingly, didn’t quite enjoy it?


    1. YES, KATE! AND I LOVE IT! I actually knew about them from their interactive episode and then I started reading them more and before I knew it, I finished the whole comic! And I’m sorry that you didn’t get to enjoy Solitaire! I only read Radio Silence and I Was Born for This from Alice Oseman and I truly enjoyed both. Have you read any of these two?


      1. OMG YES! I’ve heard of the interactive episode but haven’t read it yet. I actually saw it featured on Webtoons!! Read it for the art, stayed for the wholesome story ❤ ❤ Yeah, I think she mentioned somewhere that Solitaire was her first book. Though it was the first novel I read of hers, Heartstopper was the first ever Alice Oseman work I read and I cried in the bus while reading it uwu Haven't read those two but maybe I will someday hehe 😀


      2. “Read it for the art, stayed for the wholesome story” I COULDN’T SAY IT BETTER! I heard that she originally posted Heartstopper as a webcomic on her Tumblr, but is it the same one with the book? I’d love to read it because there are so many positive words about it! And you should let me know once you read any of those two! I’d love to know your thoughts about them!


      3. Yes!! It started in her tumblr and then I think she also publishes it simultaneously on Tapas (which is where I read it since I wasn’t well-versed in tumblr at the time) and then she got a publisher to release the series in volumes! Omg Vinny, it’s sooo good! Although I haven’t updated myself with it for a while haha. Ahh I’ll definitely tell you when I pick up either of the two!
