Long time no see!!
How are y’all doing? Can’t believe it’s been 2 months since I last posted something here and I miss the hell out of it. *bawling* You know that feeling when you pick up your hobby-of-life for the first time after abandoning it for a long time? The thrill of sharing what you’re up to with fellow blogger friends, the excitement of waiting for an upcoming release from your favorite author, and the familiarity of being surrounded by your most faithful group of bookish besties? Yep, that’s what I’ve missed in the past few months and I surely want to reconnect with everyone/everything. 😥
So please allow me to tell you what’s going on with my life in general and what I’m gonna do about it before my short break’s whisked away not-too-unexpectedly. I’d be updating my current life status and what I plan to read this week in today’s post. Hope you enjoy it! ❤
§ About my life §
First thing first, I,
hopefully you didn’t notice, disappeared for a while after my last post, Literary Book Gifts + Promo Code!, due to my new phase in life–adulting and taking responsibility seriously–after starting my job. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being a novice in a place where everyone around you seems much more mature and experienced than you are–duh–so I obviously had to learn as much as possible in the shortest amount of time as I could, too. Not gonna lie, it was A LOT of PRESSURE. I was overwhelmed by the workload day by day and even until now, there’s still a HUGE ROOM for improvement.
§ New Look on my Blog§
Anyway, I’ve accumulated way too much negativity in my life at this point so that’s why I decided to take a short break this week and do something that used to cheer me up–reading and writing something for my blog. As you can see, I FINALLY renovated my blog and this time, I chose my love-at-first-sight theme! I adore the overall simple design and the palette it provides so much. Although not much has changed, I did enlarge the font size for my posts and buttons. Somehow I think it’ll be easier to read with bigger words and clearer view. 😛
What I have in mind for the next step in completing my blog makeover is some logos and consistent blog post banners. Not surprisingly, I’m incredibly terrible at graphic designing or basically, anything art-related. Hence, I always have trouble creating beautiful, eye-catching banners for my book reviews. Though I’m still not sure what I’d do with it, as long as I have hope and determination, I will definitely come up with something useful then. P.S. If you have any tips for rescuing my poor art skill, please don’t hesitate to let me know! I’ll love you forever. :-*
§ Currently Reading §
Ah, how I’ve missed having a book in my hands or simply reading something that aren’t textbooks or working manuals! *hashtag blessing* During the past few weeks, I’ve got some exciting reads to do but never had the chance to indulge myself in them. Therefore, I will be enjoying Ellie Marney’s Circus Hearts 2–All Fall Down, for starters. I absolutely loved the characters and storyline in book 1, like seriously, the romance between the protagonists is to die for, and above all, you never know how mysterious circus life can be. *evil grinning*
And then, I plan to wrap up my previous reads all at once because I should’ve been doing so a looooonnng time ago. That being said, I’ll continue these two completely-different-genre books:
Alright, as we come close to the end of today’s post, I’d love to know how YOU’re doing recently and what you’re reading! Also, what do you think about my blog’s new look? Any suggestion on making a blog easy to navigate or browse through? How do you usually design your graphics? Blog banners? I’m more than eager to chat with you! ❤
Have a fantastic week! 😀
Until next time,
