April Recap: My current reads (all coincidentally by Asian authors)!

Hello friends! It’s the end of the month again and the beginning of another. I hope all of you had a lovely April and you are reading some wonderful books.

Today’s recap will be a little simple, so I decided to talk a little bit about the books I’m reading because I’m reading some truly fantastic ones at the moment! And also, don’t forget about all the amazing books releasing this month!

March Recap: I returned to university & my new life of having no life

Well, here I am. I have survived.

This has been like a lonnnnng month. I’m writing this whilst feeling absolutely guilty that I am here and not working on my assignments, but also recognize that doing something non-university related is a needed catharsis.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to do much (leisurely) reading at all. The only time I get to read is when I’m on commute or at 2am at night after I’ve finished my work for the day (and by then, I’m asleep after 10 minutes of reading)! But, I’m doing my best. I can’t say I’ve had time to blog – I’m only allowing myself one hour every Sundays to do any and all blogging work, but I’m trying to achieve a balance. I’ll get there.

Deep breaths. Let’s go.

February Recap: Mini movie(?!) reviews and commemorating Black History Month


As per tradition, I have to begin this monthly recap with the age-old question: how the heck is it already February?

This month was Black History Month, which is not a part of my country’s history, but to a lot of my friends and followers, it is a part of yours. All my book reviews this month, my Book Recs post, and a Diversity Thursday Spotlight was dedicated to Black History Month, wherein I highlighted and shared books by black authors.

Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening friends. 😊

I hope all of you have had a splendid start to 2017. My January has been filled with a lot of relaxing, a little bit of working, and a few adventures! But it’s the end of January and my time to go back to university is fast approaching, which means that there will be some small changes to Read Think Ponder… read on to find out more. 💕

December Recap: My Blog Levels Up and… I Level Up(?)


Hi friends! How are we all?

You may have noticed – or I hope you’ve noticed! – that my blog looks a little different… hopefully a little better! I’ll discuss the changes in my recap for December! This recap will be a little shorter today because we’re in the heart of the festive season, so I’ll keep it short-ish for everyone!

However, I want to highlight that I am inviting book bloggers to recommend four books to commemorate a cultural festival that is important to them! It’ll be a Festive Book Recs guest post, so if you are interested, see the details below!

November Recap: Foreword of the new chapter in my life, Pokemon, and celebrating diversity


November was a great month for me with ups and downs. I resigned from my job, I read more, I spent more time with my friends and family, I played a ton of Pokemon Sun, and I feel well inside and out.

The not-so-great thing was that I was terrible at blogging and I completely and utterly failed at NaNoWriMo. I only published one review this month! (What is this?) But, on the upside, I posted a new page dedicated to diversity. 🌈 But, more on that later!

October Recap: Being real; my journey with health & learning from my failures


October has a very interesting month for me – a lot of introspection, a lot of asking myself what I want to do with my life and future, and still a lot of uncertainty. Despite my hopes in my previous recap, I don’t quite know what my 2017 will look like. It’s been stressful and nervewacking, but I am soldiering on because, what else can you do?

For this recap, I’ve changed the Around the Blogosphere section a little bit – I’ll only be posting discussion posts – because don’t want this post to be too long and I want to talk about other things more. :)
