Definitely, lots of improvement is needed. Haha. Hoping 2019 is better reading-wise. How was your 2018?


Often seen with a nose buried in a book, you might spy me at a library while 500 unread books adorn my shelf. At other times, I'm busy travelling solo, eating out or looking for my new escapades. You will always find me doing too much all at once.
