End of The Year To-Be-Read Books & Update


Hello fellow bloggers

How are you all?

So I have posted twice in the last two months. It was mainly because I had exams in September and then my laptop stopped working. Its still not repaired and I am currently writing from a borrowed one. Nevertheless, I’m ready to get back into blogging. I’m still trying to figure out how to balance writing, reading, school and studies but I’m gonna try my best.

I’m currently re-reading A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I’m also listening to Egg and Spoon by Gregory Maguire. I have about 3 hours left of it and I am so ready to finish it.
