MAY 2019 WRAP UP

Hello everyone! May has just ended as I am writing this and the heat definitely signals an approaching summer. I had mock exams this week, so not much reading happened, but here is a breakdown of what I’ve been reading and listening to this month!


Mangas made up half of everything I read this month (largely because I had exams and anything more taxing was just not going to happen). For some I keep starting new series instead of continuing other ones, but oh well.

TOP 30 SONGS 2019 JAN-APRIL: K-POP EDITION

Okay, so the title is a bit of a misnomer. It would be better to call this the “asian-language edition” but that sounds kind of funny and seeing as the majority of the list does happen to be K-Pop I just went with that instead, but any songs in a Asian language are eligible for inclusion on this list. In any case, the following is a collection of my 30 favourite songs so far this year. It changes a lot, but this is how I rank them at the moment (let’s be honest, it will probably change the day after I post this but whatever).

Because this is just a quarterly update I’ve only quoted my favourite lyrics from each as opposed to giving a little spiel about why I like the song. In my end of year one I’ll give a bit more detail 🙂 Enjoy!

MUSIC WRAP UP: MARCH 2019

Hey guys! March ended almost a week ago, so I’m running a bit behind but anyway, here are some of my fave songs that came out this month (or well, last month). Also, note: if the MV of a song came out, but it doesn’t become available on music platforms (e.g. Spotify, iTUNES) until April then I haven’t included that in this post (aka: RM’s solo won’t be here ;)).

Mamamoo’s BLUE;S | Album Review

Image result for blue;s

BLUE;S was released in November 2018, making it the third installment in the group’s 4 Seasons project. This was Solar’s album and contains a solo song by her, along with four other tracks, two of which were promoted.

This album has a more mature and understated wintery feel, a long way from the summery, vibrant vibe of RED MOON. As suits a title named BLUE;S, this album contains all of the songs you could possibly need for when you’re feeling down.

K-POP ME VS. MY FRIEND (ft. Adele @Bookishdella) PART 1

Okay, so I’ve been watching quite a few of these types of videos on YouTube at the moment because… procrastination, and they looked like a lot of fun, so I suggested to Adele (a fellow book and music blogger) that we should do it together!

Both of us have been big K-Pop fans for a couple of years now and we often have quite different yet similar tastes in music at the same time. For example, we might both like the same group or album, but my favourite song will be her least favourite, and vice versa. It’s really interesting when we discuss our thoughts, so hopefully you find this post interesting too!

Also, this is part 1 of 2 (for now) so please go and check out part 2 on Adele’s post!
