I’m back for another updates, maybe you are excepting a book related post. But sorry to disappoint you 😛 but I’m reading now not much but I’m reading again. And hoping can reach my goal by the end of the year. And let’s pray for Paris and Japan before I started this update

  • Currently Reading: The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller and The Iliad by Homer
  • I had changed from Biology to Film Studies which I’m loving it so far
  • I still have less than a month before I go back to Hong Kong ❤ (But I will be back in London in January)
  • Hopefully I will finish The Song of Achilles tomorrow or Monday, then I will have a review for it
