January & February Wrap Up

Hello everyone! So yes, I was a horrible blogger in February. I never posted a January Wrap Up or a TBR and I think my reading definitely suffered because of it. Therefore, today I will be including both months in one post!

2019 in review: music stats

Okay, so you might have seen my bookish stats post that I posted earlier today…. but here is the music version! Enjoy!


So this first set of statistics includes all the music I LISTENED to in 2019. Unsurprisingly, my most listened to songs, artists and genre were K-Pop. That being said, less than half of my listening was K-Pop, as you can see by the little genre chart on the right. The most surprising part of this was a) that I listen to a lot of native american music (must be the instrumental stuff I like) and b) that TWICE’s BDZ (Japanese song) was my most listened to song! I think I listened to it on repeat for about 2 weeks in the summer when I had it stuck in my head, and then never really listened to it again! I’m not surprised that GOT7 was my most listened to artist though- their albums this year were top-quality, and I went to a concert as well. I thought Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now would be amongst my top songs, as well as MAX’s Hell’s Kitchen Angel, but apparently I didn’t listen to them as much as I thought I did!

2019 in review: top 5 books of 2019

Welcome to 2019 in review episode 2! There was no way for me to decide which of these was my favourite, so instead of pitting my favourite books together, here are my favourite books of the year!


Perfume by Patrick Süskind

This book was one that took me a long time to read, but I like to think that I was simply savouring its deliciousness. It was definitely worth it when I finished it, and I gave it 5 stars.

Perfume is a modern classic which was published by the German author Patrick Süskind in 1985. It is set in 18th Century France and follows the story of Grenouille, a man with an amazing sense of smell who feels apart from society. It follows him as he escapes the smells of the city to explore the world of scents, which eventually leads him to becoming a rather horrific murder in the name of creating the ‘ultimate perfume’.

2019 in review: reading stats

Hello everyone! It’s been so long- over 6 months!!! Apologies for the impromptu, unannounced hiatus: coursework kind of took over my life, I wasn’t really reading, and I didn’t really have time to blog. Now, though, most of my coursework is finished and I only have exams left, so I can resume regularly schedule, and hopefully improved, programming! Starting with wrapping up and updating you on the little reading I did manage to do in 2019.

Today, I will be running through some stats (which I love) and later (probably later today, because I’m trying to get these wrap up posts out quickly so we can move onto looking at the future) I will tell you all about my favourite books as well!

Without further ado, here we go!

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.
