Monthly Wrap-Up: January 2021

Happy New Year, friends! We have officially reached 2021. πŸ₯³ (well..obviously because it’s currently february) but first, we have to reflect on the first month of the year~!


January was SUCH a long month. 😱 I finished my final exams for school and officially graduated with my Master’s! Technically, I took all my online exams last month, but I had a take-home final due the first week of January so now, I am finally free!

I guess my biggest life update at the moment is that ya girl got braces. 😬 LOL I legitimately look like Darla from Finding Nemo…I could actually pass for a 14-year old. I’ve also been super obsessed with the K-Drama, True Beauty, which was one of the first webtoons I read…it’s actually so trashy…it’s good. πŸ˜‚


According to Goodreads, I read 30 books last year which can be broken down into 4 books, 1 novella, 24 volumes of manga, and 1 webtoon…as you can see, I was on the biggest manga reading spree. 😎 I actually probably read more, but I’ve been too lazy to log all of the manga into Goodreads.

*i’ve only included the first volume of both manga*

This was such a great reading month because I decided to just read whatever I wanted. πŸ₯° I read 180+ books last year which honestly burnt me out, but now, I’m letting myself read without any pressure. I reread Horimiya because the anime is now out and started a new manga, Hirunaka no Ryuusei. I also reread the webtoon The Office Blind Date/A Business Proposal again after loving it a ton last month!

  1. I love Horimiya and Hirunaka no Ryuusei! Also this month, I have These Violent Delights to read so I have very high expectations! Congrats on finishing your Master’s! πŸŽ‰


    1. Ooo do you have any similar manga recs? I’ve been loving shoujo manga. And I can’t wait for you to read TVD. It’s definitely amazing~!


  2. Ah congrats on finishing your masters 🎊 January was a hibernation month for me but I did read 3 books! I finally finished The Bone Witch, which was amazing but I’m taking a break from that series to try and emotionally prepare myself for it πŸ˜‚ I’m both ready for book 2 and not at all. Sending you love and good vibes for your February Tiff πŸ’œβœ¨


    1. thank you, clo!! ooo i still need to read the bone witch (which i’ve been saying since i’ve started blogging LOL) i hope february is treating you well~!


  3. I loved watching Your Name, the anime was quite confusing at first but it was so cute πŸ’œ And the Vampire Academy was quite a nice book too (and the whole series turned out to be so much better than I expected it to be) I’m so glad january was good for you! Giving all the lovely vibes for February Tiffany (;


    1. it was such a fun movie! the vampire academy series is definitely one of my favorites, and i can’t wait to read the rest of the books~! i hope february is treating you well ❀


  4. I can’t believe the sheer hype True Beauty has, I only started watching anything K-drama last year and am so unaware of so many things. So, True Beauty being so famous and people waiting for each new episode the way did confused me. Oh, well. Also, The Burning God and These Violent Delights were both so good!


    1. It’s SUCH a popular show!! What shows have you been watching lately? My favorite is Strong Woman Do Bong Soon πŸ₯° Happy reading~!


      1. I think my all time favourite has to be either Hospital Playlist ( that was my first k-drama) or Weight lifter Kim bok joo! That show is so good and maybe Romance is a bonus book too.


  5. Aww, I’m so glad you’re finally free, and congrats on completing your Masters!! I wish you the whole success in the world ❀ I also spent a lot of time watching True Beauty in January – that is, whenever I wasn't crying because of exams )): And I started the Webtoon last night, it's really fun!! I hope you're having a great February πŸ˜€


    1. MARTA!!! I hope that your exams went well, and I’m so so excited to know all your thoughts on True Beauty ❀️


      1. thank you so much, tiffany!!! thankfully, everything went well πŸ’•πŸ’• true beauty was really hilarious, though it was a bit cringe at times hahah but i could forgive it, i had a great time watching it!! i’m now reading the webtoon!


  6. Congratulations on finishing your Master’s, Tiffany, so so so proud of you!! ❀ ❀ and I'm so glad you're taking reading easily and without pressure, honestly that's when you fall in love with it all over again. I should do that ahahha.
    Sending you all the love ❀


    1. Thank you Marie!! And it’s so easy to get caught up with the reading hype online but taking time for myself to just read whatever I want has helped reignite my love for books ❀️❀️ highly recommend LOL sending you all the love~!
