The month of May is the pleasant time; its face is beautiful; the blackbird sings his full song, the living wood is his holding, the cuckoos are singing and ever singing; there is a welcome before the brightness of the summer.

I know that it’s July now and would be too late to post May and Jun’s recap but you know what, whatever.
MAY IN RETROSPECT
|MAY MONTHLY READS|
I didn’t read much this month because I suffered from a book hungover that is Ze Tian Ji. If you read my May monthly reads, you’ll know how much I love the book. The plot, the character development, the friendship between the main characters and the cute romance made ZTJ top my 2017 reads so far.
|SPRING FLOWER HUNTING|
My flower hunting spree continues in Tochigi and Tokyo. It was first time watching wisteria live and the view didn’t disappoint.
|GOT REJECTED FOR A JOB INTERVIEW|
I’ve become so numb, I can’t feel you there
Become so tired, so much more aware
By becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

JUNE IN RETROSPECT
|CELEBRATED EID AT HOME|
The flight tickets to Malaysia are sold at cheap prices in June (maybe because it’s the fasting month?) so I thought why not spent my Eid at home instead of moping around in my room so a week before Eid, I took a flight and just like that, I was home. I spent my days by
- making cookies
- babysitting my nieces (more like me taking pictures of them and frantically looking for their mothers when they suddenly cried)
watched my dadbakar lemang
- eat, eat and eat
|OPENED AN INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT|
I opened an Instagram account in June (you can found me here) to create a beautiful bookstagram where I shared my love towards books but somehow it ended up being a place for me to brush up my photography skills lol. #Its2017tho #OmgLame
|JUNE MONTHLY READS|
Unsurprisingly, I re-read a lot again so for July I promised myself to not touch any of the old books that I had read multiple times. Looking forward to reading all those hyped YA books that kept magically adding themselves on my TBR list.
