Okay. Hello. it has been a while. a few weeks. a few months? maybe a year? sorry. well. Life kind of got in the way for a while. and blogging -- and reading -- definitely got stuck on the back-burner. for a long-ass time. and I’ve been thinking about reading and getting back into reading.… Continue reading The Most (and least?) Popular Books I’ve Read? // Are Goodreads Ratings A Hot Mess? (Yes!)
I'm writing this and listening to my neighbours' very-loud-radio at the same time (there's lots of ABBA and now i want to watch Mama Mia 2 again). In the Classic Lu Fashion, i disappeared from the internet for over a month (again). i lost all motivation to do anything (again). So i didn't (again). oh… Continue reading JUNE WRAP-UP, JULY CATCH UP, 1500+ FOLLOWERS(?!?!?), BREAKS & LOTS OF NOTHING.
Can books please be good again. This year is going pretty terribly in terms of book-enjoyment, if I'm honest. this is DEPRESSING to write. i now hate this tag. I didn't expect (at the time of writing this post) to be so far ahead on my GR reading target (I'VE NEBER BEEN AHEAD BEFORE) but… Continue reading Mid-Year Freakout Tag // Goodreads Updates, Reading Enjoyment (None) + So Many 2-Star Ratings It’s Hard To Do This Tag.
I haven't done a tag since June 2018. maybe if i didn't abandon my blog that wouldn't be the case. I know we've all had to adjust in some way during the pandemic, big or small!! and that we cannot wait for it to be safe to go and see our friends and loved ones… Continue reading The Stuck At Home Book Tag Ft. All The Scary Books That Intimidate Me.

So i don't think it's a secret that i took... a long break from blogging. like super long. and I feel like I needed that. But, also, while not blogging, i wasn't reading much either... because I simply did not have the time (and I guess i haven't really spoken about it really). here's me… Continue reading SHORT DISCUSSION: NOT Reading Made Me A ‘Better’ Reader Than Before // Blogging & Reading, A Potential Nightmare?
right now, in this crazy world, we need some time for self-care and relaxation. So why not make yourself uncontrollably SOB? if that's not self-care, i don't know what is. And of course, rather than reading all the new books I haven’t read, I’ll reread all of these for the millionth time because… that common… Continue reading 6 Comfort Reads: The Books I Constantly Re-Read With Zero Shame and You Should Do The Same.
At first, i was frightened by the direction of this month because... i was hating the books i was reading. but luckily that turned around. some scene-setting: It started off nicely, with a reread of I Wish You All The Best, and, ironically, it did not go well from there. Summer Bird Blue (review here)… Continue reading THREE REVIEWS ONE POST: emergency contact, you asked for perfect and P.s i still (no i don’t) love you.
all the bad books just seem to be launching themselves at me at the moment. by that, i mean two books specifically. I don't know about you, but i feel a bit guilty about DNF-ing books. i've only DNF-ed a few books. here are some of them off the top of my head: When Dimple… Continue reading 6 Reasons Why I’d ‘DNF’ A Book: Meh Books With All The Terrible-ness And Tears Being Thrown From Windows.
