The Monthly Hufflepuff | Looking Back on August While Freaking Out About School

hahaha school is almost upon me hahaha

๐Ÿ’›ย Giant Days #22-29ย – I haven’t really talked about this comic yet, but it’s so much fun. It’s about three girls who met each other in college and became best friends. They have a lot of antics and it’s just hilarious. The side characters are also great

๐Ÿ’›ย Heroine Complex by Sarah Kuhnย โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜… – Despite the four star rating, I absolutely loved it. Read my review here

๐Ÿ’›ย Ps. I Still Love You by Jenny Han โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜… – Still need to review this, but I loved it. Can’t wait to read the final one

๐Ÿ’›ย It’s Not Like It’s a Secret by Misa Sugiuraย โ˜…โ˜…โ˜… – SUCH MIXED FEELINGS. I really wanted to love this one and it had a lot of potential, but alas the things I didn’t like really outweighed the things I did like

๐Ÿ’›ย Gotham Academy Second Semester #12 – There’s no news of there being more?? So this might be goodbye?? I’M NOT READY TO SAY GOODBYE TO THESE KIDS. While it did end the current arc, it really didn’t feel like an ending to a series to me, so I really hope there will be more

๐Ÿ’›ย Ms. Marvel #21ย – What more can I say besides that Ms. Marvel is still going strong and if you haven’t read it yet, what are you waiting for?

๐Ÿ’›ย Anne of Windy Poplars by L.M. Montgomeryย โ˜…โ˜…โ˜… – This took meย two months. It had its charms, but it felt too long and was kinda boring at times. I’m going to take a break from Anne

๐Ÿ’›ย Snow White and the Seven Angels by Rhys Christopher Ethan โ˜…โ˜…โ˜… – cute, a great message and an interesting take on the original fairytale

๐Ÿ’›ย Lumberjanes #40 and #41ย – Lumberjanes is also going strong. If you want to know why you should read it, why, I’ve got the perfect post for you

๐Ÿ’›ย The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl volume 3 โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜… – Really fun read and I absolutely adore Doreen ย and Nancy (and their friendship)

๐Ÿ’›ย Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugoย โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜… – Initially I was a bit worried that I wasn’t going to like this, since I had trouble getting into it, but that was probably because I had been reading a lot of contemporary lately so I needed to get back into the fantasy pace. But as you can tell from my rating I ended up loving it! I definitely understand all the hype now

๐Ÿ’›ย Hi-Fi Fight Club #1 – Can’t really say anything about this yet, since it’s only the first issue and the story is just getting started. The art is really pretty and cute though, the protagonist is sapphic and it looks like there will be lots of girlpower, so I have high expectations

But I do gotta get back to school (rip). I’m determined to be able to combine blogging with school this year though. I’ve made an entire planning for the coming month and I’ve already got some posts written and scheduled. I’ve also changed my schedule (from Monday – Wednesday – Friday to Tuesday – Thursday – Saturday) hoping that will work better, since one of those days is during the weekend so if I don’t have the time to schedule a post for that day I’ll hopefully have time to write it on the day itself. If I do disappear you know why

The Weekly Hufflepuff #55 | I CAN BREATHE AGAIN

GUESS WHO CAN BREATHE AGAIN

I only have an annoying cough left but oh well I CAN BREATHE

The Reading Quest started so I started Six of Crows. So far it’s been a bit of a slow read for me, but I think that’s also because I’ve been doing (and reading) some other stuff. I did finish Snow White and the Seven Angels, because it was really short. Right now I’m at 30 EXP and 31 HP.

On my way to work and I continued Anne of Windy Poplars and found myself so close to the finish line that I really wanted to finish it this week, even though I could’ve read Six of Crows instead. As much as I love Anne, I was so done with this book. So I wanted to be literally done with it. I had been reading it for two months!! I thought this was one was longer than the others, but only by a few pages? (I read it as an ebook thus why I didn’t know) There were certainly some good moments, but the old characters barely appeared and there were so many new characters omg. I didn’t care for most of them, though some of them were definitely charming and fun. Anne herself definitely still is.

Other than that I’ve been catching up on some comics: Lumberjanes, Giant Days (I’m finally all caught up but that means I can no longer binge read) and I finally continued Squirrel Girl by starting volume 3. While I did like the first two volumes I wasn’t in a hurry to continue, but I definitely fell in love with it during volume 3! Oh and Giant Days is SUCH A JOY. It’s so funny and charming and just afsdfg. I’ve already talked about Lumberjanes here but I’m still loving it.

Had to rest because of my cold that I wanted to get rid off ASAP (no way am I letting this cold ruin the last two weeks of my vacation as well) so besides going to work I stayed at home. I don’t even remember what I did? Wow my life was so boring this week. Obviously I read. I also watched the usual shows (Shadowhunters – THAT FINALE, The Fosters, The Bold Type) besides Teen Wolf. As I mentioned last week the first two episodes really bored me so I didn’t really feel motivated to watch. I only have so much time left before school starts and I didn’t want to waste it on a possibly ย boring episode. I’ll catch up probably once school has started and I’ll be too tired to do anything else anywayย ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ I also started to rewatch my favourite K-drama, Dream High, because why watch any of the 21487635 K-dramas you haven’t seen yet when you can rewatch your fave instead (I’m happy to inform you that I’m still absolutely in love with it)

Oh and I blogged? I think? Or did I schedule these posts. Oh yeah I did. But I read other people’s posts! So there’s that. I didn’t just lie on the couch and read Klance fan comics all day hahahaha

Help me I’m in Voltron hell and we’re not getting season four until October

OH AND I WROTE! I actually wrote almost 1400 words? Considering I haven’t written anything since Camp NaNo ended I’m proud. I don’t have much to say about it so I decided to put it here instead of adding my separate writing section

๐Ÿ’›ย I created The Book Aesthetics Tag in which I made some aesthetics for books and characters
๐Ÿ’›ย Iย made a tutorial on how to make aesthetics
๐Ÿ’›ย I talked about studying journalism with an anxiety disorder and worrying that my anxiety will get in the way of my goal of becoming a journalist and how my writing/character eased my worries a bit
๐Ÿ’›ย I reviewed Heroine Complex which you need in your life ASAP. Female Asian superheroes should be enough to get you to read it right?

๐Ÿ’›ย Eve talks about their experience at YALC
๐Ÿ’›ย Ilsa talks about why she started to hate book genres
๐Ÿ’›ย Em has some DIYs to stay organised
๐Ÿ’›ย Kat did my Book Aesthetics Tag and her aesthetics are beautiful
๐Ÿ’›ย Jordyn talks about what determines when she reads a book
๐Ÿ’›ย Holly wonders if there’s more to Jane Austen than romance (spoiler: yes)
๐Ÿ’›ย Ellyn wonders if we should recommend books we haven’t read in a while
๐Ÿ’›ย May talks about how blogging can help with social anxiety
๐Ÿ’›ย Lia talks about cover judging and compares Dutch and UK/USA coversย 
๐Ÿ’›ย A.J. talks about what Percy Jackson meant to her as a kid with ADHD
๐Ÿ’›ย And also gives you 5 reasons why you should add Wild Beauty to your TBR

And that’s a wrap! I have no posts scheduled for this week

yes I’m repeating gifs but honestly,, constant mood

This will be fun (I’m currently screaming on the inside). I DO have a review written, I just need to take a picture for it and inspiration needs to strike. OH WELL. We’ll see what happens.

How was your week? What’s your favourite K-drama that I MUST watch once I finished rewatching Dream High? If you’re doing The Reading Quest, how is it going? What are you reading? Let me know in the comments!

The Weekly Hufflepuff #52

Woop I finally reached 52 Weekly Hufflepuffs! I started this feature almost two years ago, yet I only reached a year worth of weekly wrap ups now haha #isuckasablogger

I made slow progress Anne of Windy Poplars again. I am enjoying it, but it’s so long and such a slow read. Plus I miss all the old characters and none of the new ones really jump out. I also felt the sudden urge to reread Anna and the French Kiss last night, which I finished this morning. Finally, I started Heroine Complex, but I can’t really say anything about it yet. I’m not far enough yet.

Last week I said I was planning on spending more time at home, which I did! I only went to work for a bit on Friday, but other than that (and doing some grocery shopping) I spent some well-deserved time at home. The last few weeks had been so busy, I really needed to just… not go anywhere lmao. That sounds incredibly lazy but I just needed to lie around, watch some tv shows, read books, write and blog.

Since I didn’t do much, I don’t have much to share here either haha.

Wow this section was completely unnecessary

BUT THIS SECTION IS NOT UNNECESSARY YAY

LOOK

Though I changed my goal again, this time to 10.000, I’m happy with the fact that I wrote, wrote a little more than 10k and withย what I wrote (which is obviously really important too). While I initially set out to write 25k, there was no way I would’ve been able too. Sure, I technically had the time or could’ve made it, but it would’ve tired me out (physically and mentally), and how would that do my writing any good?

I might share some snippets later this week depending on how I’m feeling. I just hope that I’ll be able to finish this novel this year. I’m going to need to come up with a plan haha

๐Ÿ’›ย I finally got my review for Queens of Geek up (which reminds me I need to take a picture of The Upside of Unrequited so I can get that review up too ahhh)
๐Ÿ’›ย I talked about the behaviour of some of the Supergirl cast members and why I had already stopped watching the show
๐Ÿ’›ย I talked about why you should watch the Disney Descendants movies
๐Ÿ’›ย And I also talked about why you should read Zodiac Starforce – lot’s of me trying to convince you guys to love the things I love haha

๐Ÿ’›ย Marie shares her book blogger bucket list and honestly… same
๐Ÿ’›ย Ilsa talks about 10 awkward blogging moments #relatable
๐Ÿ’›ย Julianna talks about blogging organisation (and is actual blogging goals omg I want to be that organised)
๐Ÿ’›ย Analee talks about 7 things all us bookworms wished we had known before becoming a bookworm
๐Ÿ’›ย Lia did the 777 Challenge and thus shared some lines from her WIP
๐Ÿ’›ย CW’s love for The Epic Crush of Genie Lo shines through her wonderful review
๐Ÿ’›ย Elly talks about the next Doctor being a woman
๐Ÿ’›ย Balie talks about 4 unique tropes she’d like to see more of
๐Ÿ’›ย Fadwa talks about reviewing books outside your lane
๐Ÿ’›ย Kat did The Writer’s Tag
๐Ÿ’›ย May talks about reasons for unfollowing blogs
๐Ÿ’›ย A.J. talks about what to do with problematic books you own
๐Ÿ’›ย Beth talks about managing your expectations for hyped books
๐Ÿ’›ย Mikaela wonders if you too get tired of seeing the same books around the blogosphere

And that’s another wrap! I don’t have anything scheduled for this week which makes me sliiightly nervous, but I’m definitely getting an Artsy Hufflehoe up tomorrow. I mean, it’s the last day of the month. I have no choice. Anyway, I doubt I’ll disappear, but I may not post three times which is my usual minimum. If I do disappear I hope I’ll be writing haha (watch me waste my time by marathoning shows instead).

How was your week? Any great blogposts that I didn’t list here? How’s Camp NaNo, or writing in general going? Let me know in the comments!
