The Monthly Recap: August 2020

Posted September 2, 2020 by Rowena in Features | 2 Comments

The Monthly Recap posts are a way for me to take a look back and reflect on my previous month in books, movies, and Korean dramas. From what I read, what I watched, what I got, and the books, shows, and movies that I need to get to. I always lose track of what I have, what I need to read, what I want to watch and I need these posts to keep me honest with my damn self because I be forgetting shit.

Something amazing happened at the end of the month. I started reading again and I’m hoping that I keep that same energy going into September. Everyone pray for me, please. 🙂 I finally had a mix of all the things last month so here’s what I’ve been up to in the month that was August 2020.

  1. You’ve read 2 books now? I’m totally psyched every time I see you’ve read something because I know you’ve not been reading so I’m with you keeping my fingers crossed this is a good sign for your reading mojo. I’ve done my usual of checking out your k-drama ratings so I know what I should and shouldn’t watch. I’m still doing my slow watch of Itaewon Class but I’ll get there eventually. I’ve just not been a watching mood, or blogging mood, or reading mood really but I’ve got a week off of work so I need to fill my time somehow, right?

    • Haha, yep! I was super happy to have finished those two books too though I’m sad that I’m all finished with the Kate Daniels series. I’m SO ready for the Aurelia Ryder series though. I need Blood Heir sooooo bad!

      You’ve got a lot going on personally so it’s understandable. Lucky for you, when you are in the mood for all of those things, they’ll be there, ready for you. And so will I. 🙂
