hey bookworms, i’m back! which book-to-movie/tv adaptation are you most looking forward to?⠀
•⠀
it’s #thehateugive for me. i’ve been reading it for the past one month (at least i’m not exactly neglecting my TBR for now...) and it’s so absorbing! heck, it’s one of the few times i actually got hit hard in the heart every few chapters. seeing the trailer makes me more excited to see the words and characters come to life. 🖤
hey bookworms! what’s your #tbr for this month? 🌻⠀
•⠀
i’m attempting to read four books: the wrath and the dawn (@fabledloves thanks for the book ily), hold back the stars, the hate u give, and of fire and stars. funny i gave myself that goal, because it’s currently projects season, but it’s been a long time since i actually lost myself within pages.
hey bookworms, name a book you haven’t read before in the comments! ✨⠀
•⠀
interestingly, i’ve never heard of cornelia funke’s books until i came across #reckless in a second-hand shop. i usually read the blurb before anything else, but it ended up being an impulse buy, because the cover was too damn beautiful to resist.

how do you usually spend the last few days of your break?
i just read as much as i can, simple. there’s only two more days till school reopens, so no surprise that i’m suffering from a little post-holiday blues. 🤷🏻‍♀️
hello bookish lovelies! what was your last binge-read?
i have been enjoying #carryon! it didn’t take long for me to get swept away – i reached the halfway mark yesterday, and i regret pushing back this wonderful book on my TBR list so much. i love everything about the story, the world. i’m complete trash™️ for simon and baz. 🖤
•
thanks to @fabledlovers, i found out that there’s a sequel, called ‘wayward son’—but it won’t be out till 2020! the title alone improved the reveal, and the teaser art is such a blessing. welp, time to pray for my patience to last until then!
hey bookish fam! i'm back from the dead; it's time for my second shoutout story edition. 🙈⠀
this time, my goal for this july (or august, at most) is 1.4k! it seems like a lot, but i'm working on being a lot more active and present within this lovely community, so why not give that a shot?⠀
•⠀
RULES/NOTES:⠀
✨ you must be a public bookstagram profile⠀
✨ you must be following me, and don't follow to unfollow—that's rude⠀

✨ last but not least...⠀
the shoutout session will close by next friday, 8th june.⠀
GOOD LUCK!
hey book fam! long time no post – these few weeks were very taxing and i wasn't in the mood to take photos or go on bookstagram in general. anyway, it's been a week since i watched infinity war on friday night with my friends and oh gods, it wrecked us in the best and worst way. we all suffered, but we were happy about it. (see what i did there?) and when the movie finished, after the final scene faded to black, it was like all the life in the theatre went out all at once. 🤧⠀
•⠀
q: what are the film genres you love the most?⠀
— i love drama, movie musicals, and action!⠀
these days, i've been caught up in watching  the marvel film series, and they're so good. i love thor's story arc the most! ⚡️
HAPPY #ACOFAS RELEASE DAY! ✨⠀
i've been seeing ACOFAS everywhere on my feed and the fact that i haven't received my copy yet makes me sad. 😢⠀
still, i'm really hyped! i've been trying to refrain from reading spoiler-filled review, and so far, it's a success!⠀
•⠀
do you make theories for upcoming books?⠀
i do, but i'm kinda lazy to spell them out. maybe i should start a book theories section on my blog, once i bring that back to life. 😂
(it'll come very soon!)⠀
anyway, most of what i predict don't come true, apart for one or two i thought of.
hello! i haven't been able to post much because school just started. i'm just glad i'm not mentally dead yet, because i hear that second year is when the real shit™ starts to happen. (i'll be praying for my sanity to last as long as possible) 😩
•⠀
on the last week of my holiday, i went to johor and got a ravenclaw scarf! it was such a GOOD deal. ✨
•⠀
what's your hogwarts house hybrid?⠀
i feel that i'm (mostly) a ravenpuff.
good morning loves! 🙈⠀
i've started on #simonvsthehomosapiensagenda by @beckyalbertalli as my first read of the month!⠀
•⠀⠀
#qotd; do you have a favourite contemporary protagonist?⠀⠀
i don't think anyone will top cath avery, at least for now! ✨⠀⠀
aside from being in college (or 2 years close to the age,) i still relate to her in terms of being involved with fandoms, even though i don't write fanfiction.
good evening loves! 🤗⠀
here's what i think is the best shot from the 'million' failed choices. ⠀
i only have one more week left till school, so i'm trying to catch up with my reading, work, and writing drafts for my blog. (i'm also thinking of restarting my booktube during the next break.) this holiday has been a bit uneventful, i must admit, but it's still better than the hell-weeks.⠀
•⠀
#qotd; what's your favourite poetry and prose anthology?⠀
i love #milkandhoney by @rupikaur_! i like that the collection boldly explores difficult and taboo topics faced in life, taking the reader through an emotional journey.

hey book fam 👋🏻⠀
long time no post, but i'm baaack – i haven't been feeling up for photo-taking and posting for the past week, but my recent trip to malaysia helped start the drive up! it was fun, seeing my cousins and getting to talk to them again. the internet connection over there was super glitchy, so my plan to post each night while i was there failed. but the good news is, i took the opportunity to do a photoshoot! as for where the shoot took place... well, you'll see. 😉⠀
•⠀
#qotd; do you prefer indoor shooting, or outdoor shooting?⠀
i'm definitely an indoors person, unless the weather is pleasantly chill or i'm coincidentally outside, at a good location!
