Hi, y’all! I was MIA for past few days because I wasn’t feeling well but I’m ok now (still not in my 100% self but almost there). Good thing I planned these posts way ahead (as I said days just flew by and guess what it’s 2015 just under 30 hours (by the time I post this). But enough IRL talk, let’s get down to business, here my blog’s annual special I called: Aeropaper’s Awesome Moments in 2014: A Throwback!

Blogging/Bookish Stuff

  • Same old, same old…or maybe not? Well as you can see I’m still in a book slump and this started when my otaku self was revived and hogging so much of my free time, so much so I can’t even spare a few hours to reading. I know, I suck at managing time so my whole blogging was affected and I haven’t review in the loooongest time. Don’t worry brand new year mean resolutions. And I’m going to rectify that!
  • Also, I went to book signing, just one (The Mafi, Rossi and Riggs) and it didn’t go well as you can read in my recap. But Ms. Rossi was gracious enough to send me signed swags so it wasn’t all that bad after all. Let’s see if I will lift my ban to signings here.
  • I’m an otaku again! Feels great actually. So maybe I’m not reading books but I did read a whole lot of manga this year. And a whole lot of catching up with my old favorites (and got the chance to read some of ‘em that ended this year!
  • Got my very first print ARCs. Woot! Need to tackle those! *kicks self*
  • Biggest fandom of this year: TOOOOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKYOOOOOOO GHOOOOUUUUUUULLLLLL!!!! 東京喰種-トーキョーグール- (and now TG:re) I don’t mind being associated with anything Tokyo Ghoul. In fact it’s appreciated, no, scratch that, honored! >.< Sui Ishida is my hero!!!!! :hearts:

Other Stuff

  • I opened my anime & manga blog!!! >.< asafdsfgsdgsdgfdsgdsag!!! Don’t take it too seriously, most are just word vomit, haha. Need to update that one as well.
  • I went from accepting commissions, to stopping then back again with brand new site to boot! I implemented a time table with this one. Hopefully rules I made will help me organize stuff!

In 2015: wish lists and some!

  • There’s something I’m now praying for & I know God will provide it. (Answered prayers are the best!)
  • I hope our travel plan abroad will push through.
  • Exciting and new adventure (I don’t know what it is yet but I hope it’s awesome).
  • More bookish/otaku friends. Sorry, if I failed to visit/comment on your blogs. I will try to be more active next year.
  • Read more books!!!! >.< Like for reaaalllsss!
  • Just healthy, happy and prosperous New Year! Same goes to each every one of you! :happy:

There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.

    Ahh getting physical review copies for the first time felt awesome! It also happened to me this year haha. But I touched it like months after I received it. Thankfully the publishers aren’t mad at all.

    Eeeepp Tokyo Ghoul! I notice that you keep mentioning it in your posts recently. Not that I hate it though. It’s good to see fellow fans spreading the love! 😉 More people need to discover the series and fall into the same hole as us ;D

    I’m praying that your prayer will be answered (whatever that is!) And your hopes shall come true haha.(I kinda want to see you back to reviewing again 😀 I’m slowly picking myself up hopefully things will go well next year. Cheers!

    • Mitchii G. says:

      It does! But there’s a bit pressure on it somehow, I want to read when I’m the mood so I can really review properly.

      Me loves TG! So I will not fangirling about it, haha. Aw, thank you! Hope you can accomplished your goals for this year!

  2. Titta says:

    I actually started watching Tokyo Ghoul because of you I saw you mentioning. I still need to watch the last episodes of it but I have been loving it so far. :3

  3. Healthy & happy is the best thing you can put on your resolutions 🙂 I hope 2015 will be an amazing year and that you will get your exciting new adventure, whatever it may be 😀

  4. Alysia says:

    I hope 2015 will be a great year and that all that you pray for comes to fruition. And good luck with your reading slump, I hope you find something really good that gets you back into the groove of things. 🙂 Glad to have found your blog this year and to witness a lot of the fun things you’ve gotten to do!

    • Mitchii G. says:

      Aw, thank you Alysia. And to you as well, on whatever goals and wishes you want for this year, I hope it is a success! <3

    2015 is right around the corner, and I AM NOT READY. The highlight of this year (book and blog-wise) was meeting Jandy Nelson. I’m surprised I actually spoke intelligible to her, especially after reading I’ll Give You the Sun.

    Gah, I have yet to review physical review copies, but I’m really hoping I do in the new year.

    I hope you achieve all your goals in the new year! 🙂

    • Mitchii G. says:

      You can do it Cee. It is nerve-wracking at first but once you see the ARCs, you’ll be flipping happy that you did try! <3

    I HOPE YOU GET OUT OF YOUR READING SLUMP, but to be honest watching anime is okay too. I always take a break during semesters, and then I come back and I say “hmm I wonder if I’ll still like anime”, and then I watch something, and then I’m hooked. It happens all the time. Hopefully you can balance the both out! Even though it is extremely hard.

    Anyways, I HOPE YOU HAVE AN AMAZING 2015 MITCHII! Get to those print ARCs hahah!

  7. I hope you’re feeling better Mitchii!

    Can I just say your photos are beautiful, they really compliment your blog perfectly. I’m looking to request from publishers this year and I’m so nervous to do so, so well done for getting your copy ^_^.

    I would say my favourite blog/bookish moment would be having my designs on a book cover. 2015 is definitely going to be a year for more design projects.

    Stay awesome!

    • Mitchii G. says:

      I’m now ok! Thank you. Eeeep, those weren’t my photos. But I want photos of my own, now I wish I had the same mad photography skills that you have. ;D

      Ooooh. book cover designs. I love the samples you featured in your blog. Sending you positive vibes for more projects!!!

  8. Ahh, I’m so in love with the design of your website and that gorgeous collage.

    But really, I think a lot of people (including me!!) fell off the blogging train for a while. I totally did not post as much as I should have towards the latter end of 2014, but you’re right when you say a new year means new resolutions! <3

    I hope whatever it is you're praying about works out, along with those travel plans! I dream of travelling abroad at least once this year, but we're doing a lot of domestic travel, so I guess we'll see.

    Here's to an amazing 2015. I hope yours is wonderful, Mitchii!

    • Mitchii G. says:

      D’aaaw, thank you! >///< Yes, for fresh start, haha, hopefully it'll stick! <3 That's so nice, I hope we get to travel this year! Thank you Anee! xD

  9. I tried to get into anime & manga last year but that came to a halt with exams/assignments . My brother has been pushing me to watch One Piece and Attack on Titans. So this year hopefully I’ll get to branch into this area.

    I adored the Warner posts you did last year so I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us in 2015.

    Happy New Year, Mitchii! 🙂

    • Mitchii G. says:

      Eeeeep, totally forgot to highlight that one (was not in good mood when I wrote this). And yes, try AOT, it’ll blow your mind! Here’s to awesome new year Nuzaifa! xD

  10. I hope that you are feeling better for the new year! 2014 has been epic and cheers to a way more epic 2015. Best of luck with all your goals and dreams Mitchii!
