Monday, May 25th 2020: Fourth Week of May Reading Vlog
If you didn’t see it, this month I started doing a reading “vlog”, a post where I basically put on small updates about reading and such, just like a reading vlog, just written instead 😄
I hope you’ll enjoy! 🤞
Monday, May 18th 2020
10:00 AM • Good morning beautiful people! 😍 I woke up about two hours ago, had tea 🍵 and a chocolate croissant 🥐 for breakfast, had a shower and now I’m reading a little in I Believe In a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo, which I’m about halfway through and it’s super cute! 🥺🤩
1:45 PM • I’ve finished my classes for the day and now I’m eating Welsh rarebit for lunch 😋
2:30 PM • I haven’t been reading since I last updated you (oops 😝) but I’ve been watching an episode of the tv-show called Mapp & Lucia (1985) and it was really funny! 🤣
5:00 PM • I just took another shower to feel a little more clean and now I’ll continue reading in I Believe In a Thing Called Love 😍
6:30 PM • Finished dinner and because the film Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears came in the mail today, I’ll watch it tonight with some popcorn 😄 I really enjoyed the tv-series and the one book I read, so I’m looking forward to watching it! 👀
8:20 PM • The film was as superb as I’d hoped for! 😍 The plot was good, the characters great as ever and the tension between
the main characters 👌 The wit of Phryne Fisher is great as ever, and the team did an amazing job getting the series onto cinema screens! The actors and actresses did an awesome job and I loved all the details of Shirin’s makeup, outfits etc. 🙌 The only thing that made me sad, was how little Hugh, Dot, Cecil and Bert were on screen, however we can’t get everything in one movie, now can we? Sorry, this was super not book related but yeah… these vlogs do tend getting more life and less book related 😂 Please excuse me for that 😅 If you’ve seen the movie, let me know what you thought about it! ❤️
9:51 PM • I hope all of you are enjoying your evening ☺️ I’ve been reading a little in (you wouldn’t guess it 😉) I Believe In a Thing Called Love and CAN I TELL YOU ENOUGH TIMES HOW ADORABLE IT IS 😍 IT IS SO CUTE AND YOU NEEEEEEEEED TO READ IT!!! Did I convince you now? 😌 I probs won’t be doing that much for the rest of the night except for reading, so I’ll update you again tomorrow! Have a great night and sleep tight! 🌙🌅
Tuesday, May 19th 2020
6:30 AM • Just woke up, going to prepare for school and perhaps read a little of I’ve got time! I hope you all have a great start to your Tuesday 😉🌱
7:45 AM • My classes will be starting at 8:00 AM, so I’m checking in with a super, super short reading update before leaving you! I’ve been reading a few pages here and there this morning in I Believe In a Thing Called Love and I’m now a good way into it 🥰 It’s cute so far and I’m loving the story! Every time something happens I’m like that song in Grease called Summer Nights! I’m being like 🎶Tell me more, tell me more, Was it love at first sight? Tell me more, tell me more, Did she put up a fight?🎶
1:00 PM • I have the rest of the day off and I haven’t been reading that much because schooool, but I have been reading a tiny bit in Little Women between classes and so, and I’m really in love with all of the characters! 😍
2:30 PM • Lunch eaten ✅ Tea brewed ✅ TV-show running ✅ Right now I’m enjoying some ginger tea while watching episode two of Mapp & Lucia (1985) and Geraldine McEwan is THE BEST! I’m thinking about reading the book series sometime which is written by E. F. Benson, because my mother owns the books, so I don’t really have any excuse for not reading them 🤣 except, of course, for my really big TBR… but that’s a story for another day 🤫🤫🤫
6:00 PM • I haven’t been updating you much today, sorry ’bout that 🤦 however, I haven’t been reading that much, so that’s probably why… I finished eating dinner just now and then I’ll take a quick shower before sitting down to relax and watch a film! Can anyone guess what I’ll be watching by giving you these emojis: ⛔🏝️💎 (hint: it’s an animated film)
Answer: Atlantis – The Lost Empire 
8:00 PM • Really enjoyed rewatching this super fun film! I don’t think I’ll have much to do for the rest of the evening, but I’ll hopefully 🤞 be reading a little tonight!
9:30 PM • Reading? Who’s she? 😂 In other words, I haven’t been reading this evening! But I will before going to bed! 😂
Wednesday, May 20th 2020
8:00 AM • I haven’t been reading yet today 😬 but I will hopefully get some reading done through the day! See you when my classes are over! 🧡✨
1:10 PM • Popping in with a small reading update before hurrying on! I’ve been reading a little in I Believe in a Thing Called Love and read some chapters in Little Women through the day and since I have the rest of the day off, now I’m going to eat lunch and then be meeting my cousin, so I’ll update you later! ✨
5:30 PM • Baking a cake now! 👩🍳🍰 While dancing to some 90s pop and feeling really cool 😂 It’s quite embarrassing how I’m dancing and lip-syncing right now, but luckily no one is watching 🙈
7:00 PM • What have I been up to since I last updated you? Eaten dinner ✅ Eaten cake with whipped cream ✅ Not been reading ✅ oops 😂 Now I’m going to watch Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets because, as I’ve told you before – procrastination is the key 😅
10:21 PM • How did the evening go by the fast??! 😂 I haven’t been doing that much, just watching HP 2 and deleting photos on my phone because it’s out of control (over 1,000 photos) but I haven’t been productive nor reading 😌😅 Oh I’ve also taken lotsa selfies but that’s not really productive either because I would never EVER share them with anyone because I’m really shy 😂
Thursday, May 21st 2020
8:30 AM • I’ve ACTUALLY been reading this morning! I know, shocking right !! 😮🤭 I’ve started reading in Pretty Guardian – Sailor Moon, Vol. 2 and I love it so far 😍 It’s so cute and interesting! It kind of reminds me of Wink Club which I loooved when I was little, so that’s really fun and nostalgic 😂
11:45 AM • Let me tell you something even more shocking! I’ve been reading all morning 😱 Yes, I have been reading in Little Women this morning and I’ve gotten really far 😍 I’m so happy that I finally got some time + motivation to read 🥰
3:00 PM • So, I don’t think I’ll get that much reading done for the rest of the day – not much updating will happen 🙈 But I’ve continued a little further in Sailor Moon!
Friday, May 22nd 2020
6:00 AM • First of all, sorry for not updating much yesterday and stopping abruptly, but I didn’t get to read for more than what I told you, so it kind of seemed pointless to write blah, blah, blah just for the purpose of writing 😂 However, now I’m going to continue reading in Sailor Moon – Pretty Guardian, Vol. 2 and hopefully finish it! 🙈
6:30 AM • Aaaaaaaaaand I finished it! It was super interesting and I would wish I had more volumes so I could continue reading 😭 Perhaps my library has some I can borrow? I’ll check it out because I need more 😍
8:18 AM • I’ve been reading in I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo this morning and I started at 59% now I’m at 74% so it’s going good! I’ve been reading the entire morning with a small break for going to the supermarket and I’m hoping to finish it today? I have five chapters left + an epilogue, so it wouldn’t be crazy to believe that I can do it! I’ll continue reading now and update you later 💕✨
8:49 AM • I continued reading actually and now I’m well into chapter 21 !! I think I’m going to take a break from reading now, just to rest my eyes, move around a bit and such and then continue soon again!
11:30 AM • I’m just back from after a short trip into the city, and now I’ll hopefully, perhaps, maybe get some reading done? However, I won’t read if I’m not in the mood – I’ve been thiiiis close to falling into a reading slump this month, and I don’t want to! (obviously…), so I try not to pressure myself too much 🧡
3:30 PM • This afternoon, I’ve been watching two episodes of Mapp & Lucia and now I’m going to continue reading in I Believe In A Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo and finish it!
4:10 PM • Just finished it… oh, my it was so, so, so good! I’m totally in love !! 😍 If you’re a fan of K-dramas or cute, fluffy romance in general – you should definitely check this out! It was cute, fluffy and a whole story that made me feel like a marshmallow 🥰
normal people reading books: Oh, this is a cute story, I’m so happy for the characters!
me reading books: My, oh, my how cute they are my little fluffy marshmallow-people *swoon, swoon*
5:00 PM • I have just started listening to the audiobook of the German version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – so far enjoying it!
6:30 PM • I’m so happy that I’ve finished reading two books today !! that I’ll reward myself with watching Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban tonight 😍
I hope you enjoyed the GIFs – wait of course you did 😜
9:30 PM • I forgot to write the blog post that was going up today 🤭 so, right now I’m debating whether I should write it and then just post it, like tomorrow, or if I should just drop it? I might write it, just so I’ll feel productive – somehow, I’m better at writing blog posts in the evening, so I’m aiming for writing two tonight! Crazy, I know, I’ll update you on how it goes 🌟
10:03 PM • Half an hour later, and I’ve finished writing the blog post that should have been up today, so now it’ll only get a 24-hour delay! Now, I’ll try and start writing a blog post that, *crossing fingers*, will be going up Sunday. See you later 🤞🤞🤞
11:04 PM • An hour later, a blog post written and scheduled later! Since I last updated you I’ve written a blog post for Sunday and created a loose schedule with blog post ideas for the rest of May + June !! I fell productive, which is really nice, but I better head off to bed soon, so I’ll be fresh for tomorrow.
Saturday, May 23rd 2020
00:09 AM • Uhm… so I said I would go to bed like an hour ago? Well that didn’t happen 😂 But don’t worry! It’s not because I’ve been scrolling on my phone – no, I’ve been reading! 😍 I’ve started reading in Komi Can’t Communicate, Vol 2 and so far it’s just as enjoyable as the first volume! I’ve read 77 pages of it so far and now I’ll ACTUALLY be going to bed 😴
7:10 AM • I woke up now, so I got 7 hours of sleep!! 😱 Now I’m going to shoot some photos for Bookstagram, so I finally can post 😬 See you later!!!
8:00 AM • I managed to take about 11 different “poses” (I don’t know if it’s legal to use the word in that sense but I don’t care 😝) for the books and then I will edit them later today! For now, I’m going to have some toasted bread 🍞 and orange juice 🍹 for breakfast 😋
9:30 AM • I’ve finished eating breakfast, taken a shower + washed my hair 🧖♀️ and now I’m going to bake a cake – is there a limit to how many cakes I can bake? Apparently not, but don’t worry, I do share it with my family, I’m not that evil 😈😇!!
11:00 AM • I’ve finished baking the cake and it looks really delicious so that’s exciting! Right now, I’m once again playing games on my phone -oopsiiiii 😝 – however, I will be editing the photos I shot earlier now!
12:30 PM • Just ate lunch and now I’ll be watching two episodes of Mapp and Lucia 😍 plus eat a piece of the cake I baked earlier 🍰
2:58 PM • cake time!
4:00 PM • Right now I’m tidying up because I’m so amazing 😉 🧹 I will probably continue until about 6 PM, then have some dinner and then continue if I’m not finished! I’m also going to listen to the soundtrack of El Dorado, because I need some Elton John right now 😍🎼
7:20 PM • Now I’m taking a break from tidying up and organising with a film! I’m going to watch Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire 😁 It’s like I watch more films this week than reading 🤨
Sunday, May 24th 2020
I’m so sorry but I forgot to about you at all here Sunday! 🤦♀️ Basically, I didn’t do that much but I read some chapters in Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and got to part II! And I finished reading Komi Can’t Communicate, Vol. 2 🤓 I also watched Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix because apparently I’ve gotten into a Harry Potter mood 😂
And that’s a wrap for this week! Conclusion: I watch more films than I read books and I have too much fun using GIFs 😂 Let’s hope I get some more reading done next week! 😝
