    It was somehow busy & quite a spontaneous March!

    I hate how inconsistent my blogging mood. Last February I was on the roll~ making those fun shoujo posts and stuff. And then March came, I was enthusiastic because I had everything laid out but second week came, I ended up doing stuff all over the place & kinda neglected my blog so I only had come up with unspectacular minuscule number of posts. I want to do better this April—it is summer so I might be back on the—

    Winter 2016 Wrap-up! (+ Spring ‘16 Watch List)

    Quite a nice season! I found new favorite in the series like Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi. I even reignited my interest in Ajin and harshly reminded how awful it is to ship a couple you know it won’t happen *coughs* Obi + Shirayuki *coughs* Nevertheless winter anime was still loads of fun. Hopefully spring will follow suit (although I am more interested with the summer line-up~ , but let’s take one season at a time). (List is arranged according—

    The secret life of a (book) blogger tag

    (With how things move around here at my blog, I decided to push back some my prepared content for later (as in April). But I do have another special otaku post set before I do my wrap-up! Things just zoomed so fast once second week rolled in, which enabled me not to do much blogging (I think I’ll save my whining for my recap). The awesome Alex of Books, Cats & Maths (I love how there now book/anibloggers out there,—

    How much is too much re-reading?

    I think I told everyone before how much of a big re-reader I am. There are reasons why I opt re-reading instead of picking up new books/manga to read. I even said that I also now consider the re-reading value of the titles I read on how rate it books (or manga…sometimes). Because sometimes when I exhaust myself with reading new titles (mediocre ones, unfortunately it happens a lot) I always rely to my favorites to let’s say revitalize my—

    Fairytale retelling for the contemporary reader.

    I know that retelling books are dime a dozen. But I noticed that most of the books I read/encountered have some magical twist to it. Or done something more tangible than twisting little bit of this and little bit of that. Retelling beyond recognition in a nutshell, I reckon. But let me put some minor adjustment and instead of just putting new books, let me give older books some nudges. Giving this post some retro vibe! (it’s fun, right?) I—

    What’s On My Reading List? #7

    I want to go back to the swing of things as swiftly as possible. And with that I’ve decided to return my old feature I called “What’s On My Reading List?” This is a special feature on Rainy Ink where I present you the books I’m planning to read & manga I recently read (or have read). I decided to do this in hope that I’ll able to de-clutter my ever piling TBR. That feature of mine that reminds me—

    It was all about shoujo love for February~ + others!

    I have come to appreciate the wonders of being organized! Preparing future post is such a good thing to do. Although I still find my style to be on the spontaneous side of things. But whenever new ides came, I always made sure to take note of it. Instead of my usual attitude, “I’ll post this because I can!”—though I sometimes still cave in to that impulse! Baby steps, self. Baby steps. February in Nutshell I think I was semi-productive—
