Around the World in Eighty Days+Tea

My tbr list is getting quite ridiculous at this point. This time, instead of a review (since I haven’t finished reading this novel-guilty of all charges), I will be telling a little story. For old times sake, as a child we always have a classic story that we know by heart. For me, the novel was Around the World in Eighty Days. I heard the abbreviated version from my mom in a local library. If memory serves me correctly, she read a translated version to me too, in Mandarin. Even in another language, the action was incredibly captivating.

Update On What’s Going On…

Hey guys!

I’m so sorry I haven’t done a book review or even done any of the book award nominations (currently 3 on hold). I have a good reason though. It’s April and almost May, which means final projects of the year, extra homework, tests all leading up the final exam. I find myself getting busier with extra-curriculars as well. I’m really not sure when I will post again, but please don’t give up on my blog. I am dedicated and I love it a lot! I’m just trying to say, that I’m still here and I won’t give up on my blog. It’s all getting started, and it will only get better from here!

I hope you guys are reading loads of good books! Tell me about some of them! I have time to respond to those! 🙂
