Seven Deadly Sins Tag!

bi-weekly-wrap-up-12

Random Quote of the Day: “One of the indictments of civilizations is that happiness and intelligence are so rarely found in the same person.” – William Feather 

Hello sunshines! 🔆 Yes, I’ve actually been TAGGED this time for the SEVEN DEADLY SINS tag, so let’s do it! Oh, and thank you, Yasmin, for the tag!! ❤

GREED

What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?

Hmmm…do the books I got for free count as the most inexpensive? Because if so, I have a ton of those. However my most expensive book thus far would have to be THE SCULPTOR by Scott McCloud — this beauty was cheaper on BookOutlet (thank you, BO), but it’s sales price is around $22.

WRATH

What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

Image result for wrath sinHmmm…I’m going to have to go with Colleen Hoover or Rainbow Rowell. Both of these authors have controversial novels that have been brought into my attention as of lately but I do enjoy one or two of their novels.

GLUTTONY

What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?

LOOKING FOR ALASKA by John Green. This one is a no-brainer — I read it once (maybe even twice) a year!

Top Ten Tuesday [#41]

bi-weekly-wrap-up-6

Random Quote of the Day: “Henceforth I ask not good fortune. I myself am good fortune. ” – Walt Whitman

 

Hello sunshines! 🔆 I know I’ve been unexpectedly gone this past week, but this will ALL be explained in my very late April Wrap-Up! But for the time being, I’m sharing another TTT post! This week’s topic is…Top Ten Things On My Reading Wishlist!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week I will post a new Top Ten List. This list includes topics such as ‘my top ten favorite authors’ or ‘my top ten books of this month’. The topics will change, so make sure you stay tuned for each week! Feel free to comment or link your Top Ten Tuesday lists below and I’ll be more than happy to check them out!

MORE DIVERSITY

This one is a no-brainer, but I felt like it still needed to be said. When I say diversity, I don’t just mean racial-wise, but other cultures, backgrounds, mental illnesses, etc. You can NEVER have too much Diversity!! ❤️️💛💙💜💚

MORE NOVELS ABOUT BOOK-LOVERS

MORE NOVELS SET OUTSIDE THE U.S.

I know this is partly my fault that I keep picking up novels set in my country, but I would to read other novels that ARE NOT taken place in the U.S. I think the writing would be different and I’d definitely get a “feel” for other cultures that way. Since I am Guamanian and African American, I would love to read YA novels set in Guam or Africa! 🇬🇺

Is It Summer Yet? | April BWWU

bi-weekly-wrap-up-20

Random Quote of the Day: “The deeper sorrow carves into your being the more joy you can contain.” – Kahlil Gibran

Hello sunshines! ☀ This month has been nothing but hectic and I am super glad I’m getting the chance to do a small recap for you guys, but also for myself!

  • Lent is almost over and therefore I will be back on Twitter and Instagram starting sometime next week!! I’ve missed interacting with you on there, so I’m excited to get back to it!
  • There is so much to be done in such little time and I feel so rushed for school and such. But on the bright side every day is a day closer to summer!!
  • I took the ACT last weekend so that was another weight lifted off of my shoulders. It wasn’t as difficult as I thought, but that might just mean that I answered all the wrong answers xD
  • I applied for the Experience Berkeley Program a few weeks ago, so I’ll be waiting for a reply in late May! *fingers crossed I got accepted* 😅
  • I’m still looking for a possible summer job — I tried looking for one at my local library but right now they don’t have any applications available *sigh* But once there is one, I will definitely be applying!!

DST Really Messed Me Up…| March Wrap-Up

bi-weekly-wrap-up-19

Random Quote of the Day: “Don’t let your sorrow come higher than your knees.”- Swedish Proverb

Hello sunshines! ☀ We are officially at the end March and I am already ready for April to be over with 😅 DST (Daylight Savings Time) really did mess up my sleeping patterns, but now that it is the beginning of April, I am better at waking up in the morning xD Last month was definitely an interesting one, so here’s what did and didn’t happen this March!

THE BOOKS

CANDIDE BY VOLTAIRE

MY RATING: 3 out of 5 stars

I am super sad and disappointed that I did not get the chance to get to my March DBOTM — I was really excited to be able to get to this month’s book, however I am going to really try and read my March AND April DBOTM this upcoming month!! I’ve been assigned so much reading for school that I haven’t had time to read my DBOTM’s ☹

THE ART

Quick question: Would anyone actually consider purchasing any of my past artworks? My mom was asking why I don’t sell my artwork on Etsy and I never really considered it. But if a good amount of people say yes, then I might invest into that. So, definitely let me know! (:

  • I have officially started Driver’s Ed! I plan to take my permit sometime within the next few months, but that’ll be updated later on.
