#MonthlyWrapUp: May 2020 (+ May Favourites)

Monthly Wrap-up May 2020

I turned 26 at the beginning of this month and May has been a time of contemplation and reflection for me.

I’ve been thinking about the direction and future of this blog and I’ve come to the conclusion that I want to stop blogging soon. Well, sort of. I’d like to continue for the rest of 2020 but I’m really not sure what’s going to happen. I mean, I really enjoy certain parts of my blog (especially Shakespeare Saturdays and my more in-depth reviews of classic books) but I really dislike others and blogging is starting to feel like a chore rather than something I love to do. I need to think about it a bit more and consider my options properly before I move forward.

In other news, I didn’t read much and I didn’t blog much but I have been working on my thesis.

May Favourites

This entire section is dedicated to the work of one Korean rapper (who is also a member of BTS)…

D-2 by Agust D – I can’t even express how much I love this mixtape. I’ve waited a long time for the return of Agust D and every single track is perfect. If you follow me on twitter you may have been me fangirling over it so I apologise for that.

Eight by IU feat. SUGA – SUGA is also Agust D (the music is very different but still just as good) and this song has been a great comfort to me this month. IU has a beautiful voice and I love the melody and story she created for this song.

  1. I’ve been blogging/book reviewing almost 14 years. At times I’ve needed a break. Possibly you need a break? It gives you time to think, reflect; and possibly create something new. I wish you all the best. I really enjoy your blog and choice of books. Thanks for all the hard work!

    1. I do think I need a proper break, either just to take a break or to rethink what I enjoy creating. Thank you for the advice!

  2. I already hit you up on Twitter about this and entirely support your decision. ❤ But definitely consider cutting back and only working on the posts you enjoy writing! It's taken me a few years of bouncing around and weighing things to realize that all the memes I was doing early in my blogging career were dragging me down and made blogging feel like a chore… and it's help.

    Whatever you decide, Amy, I wish you all the best and I'll be here watching for whatever you do (or do not) decide to post. 🙂

    1. I really appreciate your support, both here and on twitter!

      I think it would be a good idea to just write the posts I truly enjoy for a while, even if it’s just to see if that works for me rather than quitting completely 🙂
