happy sunday friends! 📖⠀
.⠀
[ 🦉 qotd: what sort of non-bookish stuff do you collect? do you have specific preferences? ]⠀
.⠀
i enjoy collecting rustic and vintage items, such as this pendant! i don’t know why, but i just love the classic vibe objects like this give off. old-timey, reminiscent of a bygone age—austen, perhaps—but it somehow does not fade away.⠀
.⠀
if you didn’t already know, my blog has been shifted to wordpress. the link’s in my bio. the designing is still in progress, but its final look should be done up by the middle of December. ✨
happy weekend!
.
[ ⚡️ qotd: have you been to any book or writing festivals recently? ]
.
today, i went to the #swf2018 with @trznzty and @bofthebookish and met @kassmorganbooks! 💫 (i swear it was such a serendipitous meeting by the audience seats!) thank you so much for chatting with us and signing our books! i really enjoyed hearing you talk about your works, and i’m excited to read them. 🖤
hi friends! hope you’re having a good october! 🖤⠀
.⠀
[ 🕸 qotd: what was your first read from the horror genre? ]⠀
.⠀
i read #prideandprejudiceandzombies when i was 14, and that year, i really got into the horror genre. i wanted something that could give me a bigger scare than the dark fantasy/border-line horror films i’d been watching—and it did end up freaking me out a little more than i expected.
happy thursday, friends! 🤟🏻⠀
.⠀
[ 🌿 qotd: e-books or physical books? ]⠀
.⠀
usually, i’d pick physical books because i really enjoy feeling the pages in my hands, and occasionally catching a whiff of their fragrance; e-books are for when i don’t want to risk damaging my hardcovers or paperbacks when i’m, say, overseas! i treasure my babies way too much. 🖤
school’s starting tomorrow for me (smack in the middle of october) but i’m pretty happy with my timetable, to be honest. mondays and tuesdays are late days, so i get more sleep.⠀
.⠀
[ 💫 qotd: what do you enjoy most about fall season? ]⠀
.⠀
fall season is equivalent to the rainy season in singapore, which i love! they give a well-needed rest from the sweltering heat that usually lasts from june till early september. and it’s also amazing weather to sleep in. ☺️
hi friends! i was away for a bit because of a rough patch. anyway, school’s starting for me in a week, which is something i’m not going to think about for now.⠀
.⠀
[ 🥀 qotd: what’s your favorite scent? ]⠀
.⠀
i love lavender and rose! it’s so nice to have a delicate, lingering floral aroma floating in the air when reading or watching movies. 🖤
it’s fall season—well, not literally in singapore. i wish we could get some semblance of cold weather, but nope, it’s still steaming. 😔⠀
.⠀
[ 🍁 qotd: if you could live in a different country for free, where would you stay? ]⠀
.⠀
i’d probably stay in the UK or australia! the UK makes for great sightseeing every day, and i’ve heard the bookstores are beautiful. however, australia’s a more realistic goal, as i’ve been to australia (perth) before. i enjoyed the temperate climate while i was there, when it was springtime! 💐
hi friends! i realised i haven’t shown my shelves since i moved into my new apartment last year... so here’s an over-due #shelfie!⠀
.⠀
[ 📚 qotd: how do you organise your shelves? ]⠀
.⠀
i recently revamped my two favorite shelves, and decided (read: tried) to arrange them by color gradient. ✨ it took me about an hour, because there was a lot of shifting and carrying i had to do, with help from my lovely friend a.k.a @fabledloves. 💌
hello friends! how are you doing? i can’t believe that it’s already almost the end of september, but i’m glad i didn’t miss the night of the 21st. 🌝⠀
.⠀
[ 🔮 qotd: what’s your opinion on historical retellings? ]⠀
.⠀
i personally enjoy them, especially if it follows a subject i know and love! i’ve been catching up with #myladyjane (which is about characters from tudor england with a dash of magic thrown in) and it’s witty and so irreverent that it’s laugh-out-loud funny! the story gives off shrek vibes and i’m loving how it’s going.
i’m lounging in bed, waiting to fall asleep. 😩 the evening outing to esplanade was fun, though!⠀
.⠀
[ ✨ qotd: what bookish items do you collect? ]⠀
.⠀
i try to get what i can. for now, i have a few sprigs of dried flowers, a booksleeve, two bookmark sets, and pins. i hope to get a few more (personalised) funkos and bookish candles once i save up enough!
‘i don’t have to look far to find treasures. i discover them every time i visit a library.’⠀⠀
.⠀⠀
[ 💫 qotd: how often do you borrow books? ]⠀⠀
.⠀⠀
i make sure to do that at least twice a month, since i can’t keep buying books every time. 🤷🏻‍♀️ i usually get two books at the neighbourhood library, but if i’m feeling adventurous, i will get three.
have you bought a book for the cover?
while i don’t usually get books for that reason, i got #tokillakingdom specifically because it was too eye-catching to ignore.🧜🏼‍♀️ it’s now part of my planned TBR for october!⠀
.⠀
i spent today reorganising my files and updating my blog posts, a good break from yesterday’s draining several hours spent outside. i went to RI and basically camped there the whole day. i now feel like death, but it was totally worth it. 💁🏻‍♀️⠀
.⠀
night loves, i have another long day ahead of me tomorrow!
