New year. New resolutions. New intentions. New hopes. All for the best year yet!

Getting through a year of hell aka 2020 is such an achievement for all of us. For the whole of 2020, I have had been on the edge of my seat, waiting for the next bad surprise to be dropped and/or thinking if I’d still get to witness what 2021 would be like. Thank goodness I’m still here! Now, buckle up, survivors. I have some fun (might be too ambitious) ideas on how to make 2021 a better year than the last one!

P.S. Don’t expect TEN RESOLUTIONS.

BOOK REVIEW — the gilded wolves by roshani chokshi

“But what no one tells you is that even when you decide which world you will live in, the world may not always see you as you would wish. Sometimes it demands that you be so outrageous as to transcend your very skin. You can change your name. Your eye colour. Make yourself a myth and live within it, so that you belong to no one but yourself.”a quote from The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi

Kumusta, bookworms?

BOOK REVIEW — blood of a thousand stars by rhoda belleza

“It’s terrible when people leave. I’m not gonna tell you to get over it, because that’s stupid, and if we could just get over things when we say we’re going to, then we would never cry…” She sighed. “This is coming out all wrong. But sometimes when people leave, it’s because they had their own thing going on. It’s not your fault, and it’s not your responsibility—if you treat someone right and they leave, then it’s on them.”an excerpt from Blood of a Thousand Stars by Rhoda Belleza
