anyone feel the same way, or is it just me? writing down everything you did a certain month and then watching it pass by feels so tiring and troublesome in a way. it reminds me of how fast the month ended. like we’re already into february?? that is just so troublesome.
books i read in jan !!
- before the coffee gets cold
- last rose of shangai
- the da vinci code
- the maidens
- conversations with friends
- norweigan wood
- colorless tsukuru tazaki and his years of pilgrimage
- the outliers
i feel like compared to norweigan wood, colorless tsukuru tazaki was very much a let down. not like its terrible or anything, but can you look at norweigan wood and then colorless tsukuru tazaki and tell me they’re both equally good? NO.
i also feel like everyone’s been brainwashed to think the maidens is an inherently bad book but no, it isn’t. i didn’t read silent patient even though its the better known book of the author, but maidens wasn’t even that bad. i actually read it in one sitting and the whole concept of the book was actually pretty appealing.
watch-list wise, i don’t think i kept up with anything released. i mean i don’t want to. its not angst or anything, but it just doesn’t matter anymore ?? like no one’s judging me for not watching this or reading that, and even if they are, that’s OK. i’d rather keep re-watching friends than pretend to like some new sci-fi movie.
ironically, a new release i’m actually excited for, is the percy jackson show !! pjo was literally my childhood and seeing it come into life UGHH im hyped. we all know how the pjo movies went down, but i’m sure they’ll deliver. or atleast i hope. join me in trying to be optimistic.
jan was a pretty meh start to the year because (1) i had my exams and (2) apart from my birthday i don’t think i did anything really monumental?? other than being sick and staying in bed, but maybe the point of starts isn’t that they’re big and monumental but rather boosts that keep you up from time to time.
there’s always a next month, and a next day and a next post so yes ! i’ll see you in my next post💆🏻
how was your jan? your fave read? or watch? something you’re looking forward to in feb??
