[WEEKEND READS] where I get through my current reads because #TimeHopAThon is happening soon

this Pulp! the Classic edition is now my fave 💗

So this week was that crazy big decision week for me. I've been thinking about resigning from my work and getting one that really suits my degree. I mean, I LOVE my work at my local bookstore but I wasn't able to get that position I want. You see, I applied for a promotion and never got a call back and it's been a couple of weeks now, I think. SO I guess it's time to move on and find a different work. Yeah?

I plan to resign by the end of February and maybe I need some time off. I never got a chance to relax when I graduated because I immediately applied for work. But I do hope I get a new job fast. Also something graphic designing related. Gotta search for some companies now!

recent reads

Pride & Prejudice | Jane Austen
It took me forever to finish this but it's totally WORTH IT! I LOVE the romance in this book!! especially towards the end. I SHIP Lizzy and Mr. Darcy SO MUCH! Lizzy instantly became one of my fave characters as well because she doesn't conform with the norm. She's headstrong and independent. And after finishing this, I can see why so many love Mr. Darcy so much. Can I say now that I'd love to join the club? 😆😆😆

Every Day | David Levithan
I read this because of the upcoming movie. I'm hoping to see it with my co-worker who LOVES the book so much. After finishing this though, I was generally okay with it. It's an 'okay' read. It didn't feel special for me although I have to admit that I was really interested in A's life and I'd LOVE to see more of his story--what his contact with Reverend Poole will do to him. I'm definitely reading the sequel to find out what happens next. As for the romance, it was generally 'meh' for me. I didn't like Rhianon, tbh.

current reads

Iron Gold (Red Rising #4) | Pierce Brown
For some reason, it's taking me forever to finish this. Things are going really well and the pace is really quick so it's really easy for me to get lost into what's happening but whenever I take breaks, I just don't get motivated to pick it up again. Something is really wrong with me. But I'm going to cure that this coming week because I'm changing my #TimeHopAthon Future pick from UnBound to this one.

Dear, Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions | Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
This is my second read by Adichie. I LOVE We Should All Be Feminists. It was one of my fave reads of 2017. This one, I was a bit apprehensive because it's a letter advising her friend on how to raise a feminist child. And I'm like, nope, I don't plan on having a child. If not ever, not at this point. But as I read on, I found myself getting into that same feminist rhythm I had when I read We Should All Be Feminists

next reads

I'm participating in #TimeHopAThon this week so my to-read is obviously the books I have there which I am so excited about. I hope I can win this read-a-thon. Wish me all the luck, please!
NOTE: I'm changing UnBound to Iron Gold just because I can and I want to. lol.

What books did you recently finish? What are you currently reading? What do you plan to pick up next? Any new faves? Any recommendations? Are you joining #TimeHopAThon?

let's connect!


  1. Hope you find a job that's perfect for you. At least job searching is less stressful when you're already working and you're not miserable in your current job. I was going to tell you to enjoy UnBound (I still need to read that one, which is weird since the series is my All-Time favorite), but I see you switched it out---hope we both get the chance to read it at some point. :-)

    1. Thanks, Nicole! I'm really happy with my job right now especially because I'm surrounded by books and gets free book as well :D I'm hoping to get a new job real quick though. Maybe I can move UnBound to my March TBR since I'm hoping to get through quick reads by then :)
