The IG Bookworm Challenge

I did the #bookwormchallenge on Instagram, but had to edit my answers because of the word limit.

Here is the unedited post, in case you’re interested in learning more about me and my reading-related preferences.

Why do you love to read?
I love stories, and I love reading about different lives, types of people, and worlds. Reading and liking a new book is like meeting a really cool person. Old books are like old friends.

My parents and my older sisters read to me before I could read, and the feeling of being read to is one of the best in the world. I enjoy listening to audio books and I do it when I’m cooking and hanging out/folding the laundry. The narrator has to be right though. Otherwise, it can spoil the experience and the book. Im struggling with the book I’m reading now (The Red Threads of Fortune) and the one before it (The Black Tides of Heaven), both by Neon Yang because the narrator puts on accents I find jarring.

Taking a Break

I’ve decided to stop writing this blog, for a bit, and maybe even for good. won’t be deleting it though, as I have a lot of stuff here that I wish to keep, and who knows, I may come back. One day.

If you’ve been following my posts, thank you for your interest.

I am on twitter (daphneleeml) and on Instagram (daphneleemeilin) if you’d like to continue keeping in touch.

How come we’re in June though? I don’t like how time speeds up once January passes.

 

#joinin

So, I spent practically the whole of Christmas eve in bed and I expected that this would be the case for the rest of Christmas. When I mentioned this on Facebook, some friends thought it was a great idea. I guess it could be a restful and even luxurious way to spend the holidays, but, really, only if it’s how you choose to spend the time. I was in bed because I couldn’t quite face the world.

Mim and Her Small White Cat

Mim stickers are my new favourite thing. There are days when I wish I could communicate using nothing but. Even in real life. Imagine, being able to suddenly project Mim and her small white cat out of my forehead. Or to transform into Mim disco dancing or breathing fire. I’ve even downloaded the Mobile Girl MiM sticker app for my phone. So sad I can only use it for iMessage. (I do not believe this post! Like WTF!)
