B O O K S
During the month of October, I read 4 books. As we reach the end of the year, my reading time really limits because of university. (May feels like a lifetime away right now, but I know it’ll be here in a blink of an eye 😂) But I really enjoyed the books I read this month!
Don’t Date Rosa Santos
“Don’t Date Rosa Santos was delightful and moving. Its emphasis on family and community makes it such a touching read, and one of my most surprising reads of the year. It really was something special.” Read my review here!
One of YA’s biggest releases this year, and I really enjoyed it! It was a fun exciting read about two girls, one human, one Made, falling in love in amidst of a human revolution. It’s advertised as an epic fantasy but it felt more low key.
Other Words for Home
A sweet novel in verse about a young Syrian girl who moves to the US. It’s one of those stories that I wished existed when I was younger.
Goddess of the Hunt
A poetry collection about Artemis, Greek Goddess of the Hunt. Told through the perspective of Artemis with contribution of other Goddesses.

A feature section to highlight my favourite posts from my fellow bloggers that were posted this month.
- The Struggle of Balancing Book Blogging and School – Having started my final year of university (eek!) reading Tiffany’s post about struggling between blogging and school was really refreshing to read!
- NaNoWriMo 20 Question Tag – Jia’s NaNo project has me all sorts of excited. I get really happy see people do NaNoWriMo for the first time! This tag is really cool and a great introductory way to showcase your project to the world!
- Bong Joon-Ho’s ‘Parasite’ Is One Of 2019’s Most Essential Viewings – Review – I really loved Bong Joon Ho’s Snowpiercer (2013) so I’m really excited to hear that his newest movie has such great reviews! Can’t wait to see this one!
- Appropriation, Appreciation, and Good Ole Chicken Noodle Soup – I’m an avid fan of K-pop and have been for a while, but the anti-Blackness that is entrenched in the culture (like most Asian cultures) cannot be ignored. Check out Stitch’s post about the Kpop industry and using Blackness as a concept style for their music and videos.
That’s it for this month! Tell me what went on in YOUR life this month! What sort of things was important for you this month? New obsessions? New TV shows? Or book? Any new song recs (I’m always open to new music!)? Best books you read this month?
