It has been so long since my last Genie Shares posts, well honestly it has also been so long since the last time I opened up WordPress. Anyways, today I don’t have any interesting book-related story to share but, I’ll be sharing some excuses, I mean reasons why I have been so inactive lately.

So this post is mostly a what-have-I-been-doing-or-reading or an overall life update because if you guys noticed, I’ve been MIA (Missing In Action) since I think June and I know you all been missing me!

I Know What You Read Last Summer

Hi there…

First of all, I just want to say that I want to say Sorry for not being active on my blog for the last couple weeks, I’m still adjusting with school and I’ve always sucked at managing my time and being organized. I admit that I ignored my blog, especially last week and now I feel bad about it. I feel like a bad parent for it. And OMG guys, I MISSED YOU ALL SO MUCH. I missed interacting with all of you and writing up blog posts and comments, hope I could catch up on everything!

Anyway, enough of that because this post is really all about the books that I read last summer, it’s like a summer wrap-up. And because I know most of you are still on your summer vacation, I’ll be recommending some Summer Reads for all of you.

Books that I NEED to Read Before Summer Ends

HHHH (2)

So my Mom was watching the news yesterday and I heard the weather forecaster saying things about Low Pressure Areas and Typhoons, which basically mean that SUMMER is over. Which is pretty evident because of all that rain these past few days.

Well, rain doesn’t really mean that Summer VACATION is already over, because I’m still on vacation for 18 more days.

giphy (13)

HOW COULD THIS BE REAL? I ONLY HAVE 18 DAYS LEFT BEFORE SCHOOL??!!! UGHHHHH, THIS FEELS SO WRONG. SERIOUSLY, SUMMER CAME BY SO FAST.

I am now panicking because, I still HAVE A LOT OF BOOKS that I want to read before I get busy with schoolwork. I’m an impulsive reader, and I pick-out my next read randomly. I don’t usually make a list of books that I’m going to read.

But because I feel like I need to pressure myself into spending more time on reading, I decided to make a short list of the books that I NEED to read before summer ends. Continue reading
