The Makeup Book Tag 💄

Hello everyone and welcome back!! ❤️ I’m sorry for going AWOL the past two weeks—I’m currently halfway across the world in South Korea, and things have been way too chaotic for me to properly sit down and draft a post. Who knew there could be so much paperwork and stress involved in visiting your extended family? It’s all necessary to limit the spread of the virus, but I won’t lie and say the entire process has been anything other than extremely exhausting. On the bright side, it’s great being back in South Korea again and seeing all my cousins and aunts and uncles and grandparents! There are obviously some limitations to what we can do together because of the pandemic, but it’s so wonderful getting to see each other again.

Anyway, I figured I’d do something quick and fun for today’s post, and what’s quicker and more fun than a book tag? Thank you so much to Ritz @ Living, Loving and Reading for tagging me to do the Makeup Book Tag 🥰 I had so much fun answering these questions (despite the fact that I haven’t put on an ounce of makeup in my life 😅) and I hope you all enjoy reading my answers!!

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag (2021 Edition)

Hello friends!! Yes, it’s me, finally back from the dead!! 

It’s been—wow—almost three months since my last post. To go about explaining myself, school has been a real pain in the neck this past semester, especially with finals week and AP exams. And so I decided that blogging had to be pushed back on the priority list. I know I said in my 2020 wrap-up that one of my resolutions for this year is to not make blogging a chore for myself, but I felt awful that I couldn’t tell you guys about my impromptu hiatus. I’m so sorry, but thank you for still sticking with me! I can’t say enough how much I’ve missed interacting with you all and drafting rambly posts of 2k+ words.

Lost in Translation Tag + Baby It’s Cold Outside Book Tag!

Hello everyone and welcome back!! I can’t wrap my head around the fact that it’s officially the last day of January?? I honestly can’t understand how time works?? January was a pretty slow reading month for me, so I’m not planning to publish a separate monthly wrap-up, but I’m making it up to you today with two book tags I was tagged for an eternity ago. One is the Lost in Translation Tag, which Eryn @ Love_Your_Shelf — the original creator — tagged me for back in October. The other is the Baby It’s Cold Outside Book Tag, which I’m pretty sure I was supposed to do before the holidays, but…. we’re rolling with it 😂 After all, it’s still cold on the East Coast, and according to the forecast, we’re supposed to get lots of snow tomorrow! Thank you so much to Cherelle @ A Bolt Out of the Book and Nehal @ Books and Words for tagging me 😊

Onto the questions!

Festive Christmas Book Tag + End of the Year Book Tag!

Hello dear readers, and welcome back!! How have you all been?? Winter is definitely in the air here on the East Coast — we had our first snowfall last week, with more to come in the coming days! After 2020’s snow-less December, the weather has been cooperative enough this year to tune up all of the holiday vibes. It’s the perfect time to cozy up with a book, reading by the light of the Christmas tree. 🎄

Unfortunately, I’ve recently been feeling rather slumpy when it comes to reading (I blame Sabaa Tahir and the massive book hangover Sky Beyond the Storm gave me), so instead, I’ve decided that this is the perfect time to complete some seasonal book tags that my amazing fellow bloggers have tagged me for! Thank you so much to Alexis @ The Reading Addict for the Festive Christmas Book Tag, and to A Couple of B’s for the End of the Year Book Tag! ❤️

The Finally Fall Book Tag!

Hello everyone, and welcome back! Fall is in the air! The weather is turning crisp and cool (at least here in the Northern Hemisphere) and I got the chance to see some beautiful beginnings of autumn foliage when I went apple picking with my family over the weekend. So I’ve come equipped today with just the right type of blog post — the Finally Fall Book Tag! Thank you so much to Alexis @ The Reading Addict for tagging me, and let’s get right into it!

The Currently Reading Book Tag

Hello everyone, and welcome back! We are now officially in the season of fall! (she said, pretending to not have forgotten to mention this fact in her post from a few days ago) *ahem* To kick off the new season, today I’ll be completing the Currently Reading Book Tag, which Emily @ Frappes and Fiction tagged me for! I love sharing my reading habits with you guys, so this sounds really fun 😆 Thank you so much for tagging me, Emily, and let’s get right into it!

Musical Shuffle Book Tag!

Hello everyone, and welcome back! Today, I’m bringing you the Musical Shuffle Book Tag! I discovered this tag on Sara’s blog, and it sounded so fun that I reverted to my tag thieving ways for a chance to complete it. I mean, books + musical theatre is the best combination ever, and I know all of you are in agreement. Speaking of which, there is going to be a lot of musical theatre in this post, so if that is somehow offensive to you (um… how?), you can skip over today’s post, I guess 😂

The Liebster Award!

Hello everyone, and welcome back! I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award! Many, many thanks to Emily @ Frappes and Fiction for nominating me for this award! If by any chance I still haven’t convinced you to go give her some love (though that seems pretty much impossible with how much I rave over her content), I hereby give you permission to pause in your perusal of this post and go check out her blog.
