The Bookishdamselle in the city

Untitled-3 copy

HELLO! I’m greeting you all with a big hello because I have been inactive for months. I know, I’m being a neglectful blogger again, and I’m sorry for that.

February Wrap-Up

I only managed to read 3 books this month which is not bad despite of having those said activities. I also manage to lay low in Bookstagram which is a very good thing because I used to spend all my time there. Yes, Bookstagram is fun but there are so much more than that. I love Bookstagram and all, but I think I just grew up and became more aware of my responsibilities.
