Hello people, how are you doing today??? Well, as you did answer that question in your heart allow me to ask you one more. Have you ever felt lost in a world full of people?? Felt like you need to change your life?? I have been rushing my life too much lately. I accelerated 2 years of my life and to be honest I don’t remember much of it. So I decided to do some major stuff in my life. Let’s not waste time and start this post, shall we?
I need to get some stuff outta my body so here it is.
Oh, this 2 years of my life were a disaster. It was a month before my junior high school board exams when I found out that I lost my grandfather. I was broken, shattered and just numb. I gave my boards and hurried back to India on August 27 2018. A month after he passed away. As soon as I landed in India at Chhatrapati Shivaji Airport, Mumbai. I took a car ride all the way home. Exhausted tired and sad with teary eyes, I joined the school the next week where I was apparently not allowed to give exams or stay in school because I was a foreign resident and needed to fulfil some formalities. I studied for the whole year at home and scored 67%. As you all have probably guessed already…My first year was a disaster. The only good things that happened that year was this blog and I made my first ever best friend. The rest was a disaster.
The second-year was somehow better. This blog received some good friends and nice readers. I got awards and everything but I was still pressurized with studies and trust me when I say this, India is not the best place to study. I studied for the whole year at home YET AGAIN and somehow managed to give my exams and on the day I finished my exams, the first case of Covid-19 was registered in India and I have been stuck in my house for more than 2 months.
This quarantine has got me bad. Really bad because I can’t stand the deaths and pain around me. So I decided to pause. To relive my life. I will start with where I ended back in Africa. I know this was a long lecture for you all but I needed to remove it out so that I can start out afresh and do what I have decided. So now off to what I will be reading this month. Let’s go, shall we??
May Reading TBR.
You guys have been noticing the Harry Potter images I have been putting at the end of my every post since a few days. So happy to be reading it. Wow, I will be reading the Harry Potter series. It’s been so long. I used to go all kookoo over this series and I haven’t read it in a long time. It’s been more than 5 years since I last read it. I used to read other books and stall reading harry potter for a better time. I thought of reading it in my long vacation before senior high school but destiny had its plans for me. So I will be reading it now. I just want to go back to those old times. I want to forget the pain in my life and go study at Hogwarts with Ron, Hermione and Harry. So I will be reading Harry Potter for the whole of May month.
You read the Harry Potter Series and don’t read another book related to it?? Then, my dearest buddy, you are an obvious dumbo. Harry Potter is a wide universe and I am someone who would love to explore it so I will be reading this book too. I hope I enjoy it. I have been getting mixed reviews about this book.
I am going to go where the wind blows me. Well, I can’t go anywhere because it’s lockdown but I remember my childhood where I used to roam around my bookshelf and just look at all the books and pick up one random book and start reading. I used to read them anyhow I wanted. Staying up till 5 am reading. I will do that too. No NetGalley obligations, I won’t read a book because it will be published and I gotta review it. My life my choice. I read what my heart wants. Nothing matters to me anymore.
I need to do this to get back my little life and get rid of the pain that I am feeling these days especially because I miss my grandfather too much. I might end up doing a post on him later this week.
Now off to what I am reading right now.
I had a terrible terrible week. I couldn’t concentrate on anything and I read very little this week. I wasn’t in a slump I did want to read but I just didn’t have the time to pick up the books. So I am still reading my O.W.Ls readathon. I hope to finish them this week and will start Harry Potter too…Hopefully.
I had a terrible week. I read some little on Saturday and Sunday but from Monday things weren’t good for me as I was not feeling well and had a lot of chores to do. Wednesday was a bad day as we lost a very good actor and Thursday was the same. On Friday I had, at last, some peace and quiet and I thought of reading but I had to do some more cleaning chores and had a severe headache. So not much reading for me this week. But I am hoping to have a very productive week ahead. That’s it for the weekly wrap-up now off to monthly wrap-up.
I had a productive month…sort of. The first few days were lazy but it all turned out great. I didn’t do much blogging this month but I hope to improve on that in May. I did do some good reading and have some great blogging ideas. I am pumped to start my ride to Hogwarts and other places. This month was ok. Not so great for me but I expect good things from next month.
So that’s it for today. I had to mix bookish Friday and May reading plans for this post. I hope you liked this post. Sorry to bore you with my stuff but had to clear up.
