At the beginning of 2018, I wrote down a number of challenges that I wanted to accomplish by the end of the year. One of those challenges was to take a solo trip in 2018, and I did it just that. I went to Portugal at the end of August this year. I spent 10 incredible days exploring Portugal and got to take in all … Continue reading Portugal Diary | Take Off & Arrival
Hello. It’s been a while, quite a while. Sorry. I never intended to take such a large break from my blog. I actually had a number of posts planned when I published my last post, but life happens. And, wow, did life decide to throw me a hell of a lot of curve balls these past few months. This is kind of my re-entry into … Continue reading Where Have I Been?
Summer is in full swing. The sun is out, the weather is incredible, ice cold drinks and treats are a must, and I just love being able to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine for however long I can. For me, summer has always meant that that extra bit of time to consume that many more books. School is over, the days feel a bit … Continue reading My Summer 2018 Reading List

I set this challenge for myself … Continue reading Halfway Through CiviilyReads365

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to writing all the posts that I had planned in time, which is why I’m still posting in June. (Sorry about that.) But here we … Continue reading Recommendations for Fiction Novels Written by AAPI Authors
Non-fiction is probably the realm of the bookish world that I’m the least familiar with (other than children’s literature, which I know even less about). I am reading more and more non-fiction the older I am getting, primarily because it is filling my desire to learn more about the world and the people in it. The reason that I have chosen these books to recommend it … Continue reading Recommendations for Non-fiction Novels Written by AAPI Authors
The young adult genre is one of the most expansive genres in publishing, in my opinion. From the diversity of topics and sub-genres to the range of ages that this genre covers, it is quite an amazing place to dive into and discover new stories. For many of us, this period in our lives is one of constant change, discovery, and realization. It’s also one … Continue reading Recommendation for Young Adult Novels written by AAPI Authors
