Updates #3

Hi there… :3

So, I dropped the “Sunday” for this week because I missed Sunday, and it just seemed silly to call this “Sunday Updates” when it’s a Monday.

Anyways, first and foremost, let’s talk about real life.

Lately, I haven’t done much online (so hey, I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting you, blog! I’ll start posting book reviews again soon-ish! >.<) Instead, I’ve been busy reading and playing my piano. That’s a good and bad sign. Good because I get my readings done, although most of the books are not from my TBR for this month. Bad because, well, I was playing classical pieces from my Sonatina album. That means I’m stressed, and frustrated, annoyed, but I don’t know why…yet. And just FYI, some classical pieces are really great as a stress reliever. Such as Clementi’s Sonatina in C major β€” there are a lot of ‘fortissimo’ signs, so you get to play a lot of parts very loudly.

Other than that, hey, it’s almost April. Anyone else is going to join Camo Nanowrimo? πŸ™‚

As for fanfiction updates:

Well… Lately, I’ve been procrastinating, procrastinating, procrastinating. A lot of my new drafts has been put on the back burner, and the one I’m working on for Malec Alphabet Soup Series…well, let’s just say I’m in a writing slump right now.

Now, last but not least, book updates:

I HAVE FINISHED HEROES OF OLYMPUS BY RICK RIORDAN! YAY! lol I’ve also finished reading Playlist for the Dead, which I bought last week even though I said I won’t be buying anymore new books in March. /sigh

Now I’m going to start reading Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan. Yes, I am aware that I should have read PJO first before reading HOO, but I only have book 2 for PJO. I didn’t know when I could borrow my friend’s complete PJO books, so since my sister has the complete HOO books (well, actually, no. She only has book 1-4, but I bought her the final book for her birthday present so that now she has the complete set xD), I decided to read HOO first. And gaaah! The feels! Seriously, poor precious Nico. I couldn’t wait for The Trials of Apollo to be published. πŸ˜€

On a side note, and totally unrelated (okay, not really). My mom took my 8 year old sister with her to Melbourne for the holidays. I’m so jealous! I missed Melbourne so much, and Hawthorn! And the food and drinks. Ah! It’s been almost a year since I drank Solo Lemon. It’s an Australian soft drink, and my favourite when I lived in Melbourne last year. /sigh

Sunday Updates #2

Hi there~ I haven’t been posting anything here this week. RL pretty much kept me busy. Anyways…

Book updates:

lola-boy-next-door

I have just finished Lola and The Boy Next Door. It was amazing. Especially because we get to see Anna and EtiΓ©nne again. Seriously, why didn’t I pick up this series sooner.

Because my friend didn’t have Isla and The Happily Ever After yet, I think I’ll buy my own copy of it. But I will probably have to wait for Lady Midnight to come out, so that I can buy that one at the same time. I usually buy my books online (MPHonline) so the shipping is free if I spend RM80+.

I don’t feel like reading anything from my TBR pile right now. So maybe, I’ll reread The Infernal Devices series. I need to refresh my memories on the HeronGrayStairs feels since I need to write fanfics anyways haha

Fanfics updates:

I’ve updated my Malec Alphabet Soup Series, and from the reviews some of the readers submitted, apparently they like it. So I’m glad. Also, one of my readers who left, came back because of it. And I felt smug. I’m still feeling smug. haha

I haven’t started on The Beginning yet, but I’ve wrote some other fics for The Shadowhuntershipweeks on Tumblr. I didn’t get to do one for Clace, but I’ve written on Valentine fic for Sizzy (well, I’m almost done with it and will be posting it tonight), and I’ve wrote a Malec Valentine fic, which is a continuation of my Barista! Magnus series (A TMI Coffeeshop!AU fanfic).

I will be writing more Malec fics, which will start next week, because, well, Malec is my forte after all. I need to start writing Wessa too. BECAUSE SOMEONE REQUESTED IT! FOR THE FIRST TIME SOMEONE REQUESTED IT! ON TUMBLR! LOL I don’t know why but it’s just so much harder to get requests on Tumblr compared to other sites like fanfiction.net or Archive of Our Own.

Life updates:

I am still unemployed. I still feel a bit lost about what to do with my life. I think as days passed by, my social skill gets worser. I’m an introvert, with social anxiety, but at least last time, I could still make friends with people online. But now, the conversations pretty much died after a few exchange. Let’s not talk about talking to people face-to-face.

Anyways, thank you for reading πŸ™‚

 

Sunday Updates #1

So, I’m thinking of doing this weekly… like, updating everything (from books to anything in my life) on the last day of the week thing.

Books update:

I have just finished reading Anna and the French Kiss on Thursday, and finished re-reading City of Ashes (for the second time this year) yesterday.

Anna and the French Kiss was really awesome, amusing, funny, and a bit sad. Not gonna say much about it since I’m going to write a review about it.

Now, I’m starting a new book:

lola-boy-next-door

I hope it’ll be as interesting as the first one πŸ˜€ According to my sister, I make this noises when I like something. So far, there are four noises in total:

  1. Something similar to a dying bear
  2. Something similar to a dolphin
  3. Something similar to a whale
  4. An “at-the-moment” unidentified noise

If I only make one type of noise, means I just like it. If it’s a combination of two, I really like it, combination of three, I love it, and combination of four noise, I really really love it. I made all four noises while reading Anna and the French Kiss, so I’m hoping Lola and the Boy Next Door will get the same reaction πŸ˜€

Fanfiction updates:

I am still working on my Malec Alphabet Soup series. I need to edit the chapter for T (so hopefully I can update that today), and maybe work on the chapter for U after I return from my uncle’s wedding.

Hopefully some time this week I can also work on The Beginning, the first installment for my Bane-Lightwood Family series fanfiction. Since I already have the second installment for that series, Vignettes: Days in the Life of the Bane-Lightwood Family, I need to post the first one before I could post the second.

I have started on my drafts for my Malec Parent Trap!AU, and Malec While He Was Sleeping!AU. So far, the first one is doing great, but the second one, not so much.

Life update:

I still have not found a job, so I am still an unemployed graduate. My parents are pressuring me every single day, to the point that I prefer not being in the same room as them. Yes, most days I probably didn’t even speak to my parents, or be in the same room with them for more than 5 minutes.

Aside from that, I’m going to bake, and sell some pastries and brownies to my sister for her club to sell at school. Hopefully that’ll make my parents not lecture me about not doing anything for awhile.

Oh! Also, last night, I submitted my entry for the Lady Midnight Contest. πŸ™‚

I actually had taken another different photo earlier that night. When I was going to post it, I was like “No, this one is like I’m not even trying.” So at almost 11 p.m., I remembered a scene from CoHF, and thought, yes, maybe I can do that. And voila~!

Dressed up at 11 p.m. lol and had my sister take the photo. I was too lazy to apple on new make up, but thankfully the one from earlier was still on.

This was the photo I wanted to post at first πŸ™‚ I forgot to add my Bane Chronicles book.


So, that’s all from me today.

I’ll see you on this weekly update next Sunday πŸ™‚
