Monthly Wrap-Up: August 2020

It’s finally Fall!! Just kidding. It’s still 100°F in Los Angeles. ☀️ 🥵 This past month, I took an unexpected blog hiatus to focus on creating booktube content and ~life~, but I am back™ baby!

TIFFANY’S LIFE 🌺

First off, thank you all so much for nominating and voting for me in the Fourth Annual Book Blogger Awards hosted by May from Forever and Everly and Marie from Drizzle and Hurricane Books because I won Best Adult Blogger alongside Marie!! 😭❤️ I’ve been blogging for almost 3 years now, and the community has been incredibly wonderful so this means the world. *whispers* i love you all 🥺

In real life, I’ve decided to stay in Los Angeles to finish my last semester of university and complete my Master’s Degree. 🎓 I managed to get all my stuff shipped home, but I have SO MUCH to unpack…I’ve honestly been putting it off. Now, I’m just preparing for my final semester of education!

BOOKS I READ 📚

This month, I read 13 books which means I’ve read 152 books so far this year! 🥳 Considering I read 24 and 26 books in June and July, I read fewer books in August, but honestly, I’m thriving. I’ve been feeling less pressure, and I love getting to take my time with books now.

I also hosted the Nostalgiathon which is a readathon dedicated to rereading your favorite childhood books with Alexandra and Breana, and it was so fun to revisit my old faves and watch The Babysitter’s Club with everyone. 🐰🌙 Subtle Asian Book Club also hosted our first-ever live show discussion for The Poppy War!!

  1. I managed to read 5 books in August which is fine for me but I didn’t have a standout that I would keep wanting to recommend.
    It’s so funny to see all the fall photos and vibes especially on IG and in India I’m surrounded by palms and dying for the monsoon to end. 🙂
