First, some personal news: I will be starting my internship tomorrow! This is a curricular internship part of my final project for my master’s and I am very excited and nervous at the same time… Hooray? Again, I don’t expect to be very active but I’ll try. One of my main goals for March is to be more organized.
I wasn’t feeling very creative or motivated so I was less active on both my instagram and blog, but I hope to feel more up to it in March! So I just read, and watched a lot of tv series. I especially loved The Uncanny Counter (korean supernatural drama series, 2020, netflix), Space Sweepers (korean scifi film, 2021, netflix), and The Yin Yan Master: Dream of Eternity (chinese fantasy film, 2020, netflix).
This month I read 19 books (incl. 1 research book not mentioned below). My favorites were A Court of Silver Flames, The Gilded Ones, and Witherward. I had a fantastic reading month overall! (Though I ended up rereading 4 books.) See my GR reading challenge for all the books.
I participated in two romance-themed readathons, one over the whole month and another over a period of just three days, and I ended up reading 4 contemporary romances and 8 fantasy romances. But I was hoping to feel a little more into romances this year, but as always fantasy has my heart.
Also, this month’s book pick for the Literary Love Book Club was The Stopover by T. L. Swan and it was fun (as in I was very entertained in spite of its many, many flaws) [Review]
And I bought 4 books! My Dark Vanessa (used but in great condition) and I preordered A Court of Silver Flames, Chain of Iron, and Act Your Age Eve Brown (if I’m lucky, at least one of them will arrive in march…)
