WHUBUT Wednesday #5: An Update of the Previous weeks!

Hi folks! Today’s WHUBUT is just a short update of how I’m doing since I skipped a couple of WHUBUTs. Not so much going on but…

After being free from my college exams, projects and presentations, I was completely ecstatic! It was just last week and I already feel like I had a month of vacation! There are a lot of goodbyes that’s going to happen:

Goodbye pressure.
Goodbye deadlines.
And the best one yet: Goodbye 7:30 classes!

I am so stoked about having plenty of time with blogging and reading that now I’m in my third book for this month! Typically, I’m limited to reading one book per week, but I guess with a sort of unlimited time, I could read on most hours of the day. (Later, I realized this isn’t entirely true, knowing that I also watch some anime!)

With so much excitement I had, I ended up not writing two (TWO!!) WHUBUTs’ because I was totally enjoying my freedom. I could have been over-enjoying my slothfulness(if that’s even a word!). The good thing that came out while having a break was that I was able to conjure some topics for my WHUBUTs (although still under way) and I can’t wait to share it with you!

Also, I’d like to share that I was bitten by my cat, Loki, on my right hand (but just an itty-bitty one) while playing with him so I had several shots on my shoulders. I used to be afraid of needles but I might be heading to the road of being a medical practitioner soon, so I might as well embrace syringes! While the first one was an adorable shot, the other three were a bit…I could say unpleasant. The second shot was the most painful. The third and fourth got me feeling a bit numb for a few days (I found it annoying since it felt like the needles were stuck on me!) I have several more shots and now my current count of shots are: *DRUM ROLL* 8!!!! My shoulders have these bright red spots now. LOL.

Saying “not so much was going on” at the start of this post was totally an understatement.

But that’s it for now! I’m hoping to finish my other WHUBUTs so I’d get to share my thoughts with you all! How is your March going so far? Let me know in the comments below!

It’s not always that I read mystery books, but when I do, I look forward to the plot twist and how the case was set. With a synopsis dropped like that, I couldn’t help myself but request for it over at Netgalley. When I finally wound up reading this book, I was excited! Unfortunately, Running in the Dark felt a bit bland for my taste. Continue reading “Running in the Dark by Sam Reaves”

I feel so lost. Where do I start?? I feel like I’m losing my sense of direction just like the way this book did. I’m sorry, It just didn’t work well with me. Now I’m really confused if my standards are way too high for a contemporary novel or the story wasn’t just good enough. I just couldn’t connect with the story, the characters, nor the plot. Is there something wrong with me??? Continue reading “806 by Cynthia Weil”

March Shelf

A new month has begun and I feel so robbed of time! This month, hopefully, will be a lot less stressful and I’m hoping to read beyond my usual four books a month. Hopefully I could at least reach somewhere five, or six, or seven, or maybe even eight! That is, if I don’t get sooo distracted. But anyway, here are the books that I’m hoping to finish this month:

March Read Goal: 5-8 books

36265071 35909363 36600695 27214337 35437058 35297334 36681258 32718970

That’s a whole lot of books to read and I truly hope to finish them all! What books are you planning to read this month? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. 🙂
