Bookwyrm Breakdown: It Started Out Colder than Iced Coffee

Posted March 7, 2021 by Sophia

bookwyrm breakdown

February started off with nature rearing its frosty head at Missouri and other states because it was fucking cold and I hated it. (And not because I ended up late to work because it’s my first winter as a fully functioning Adult who works at 8 am. Although maybe that’s a big reason why other than me being a natural sleepyhead. 😴) Quite literally, it was misery as I sometimes like to call my own state.

And then it kind of got all nice and springy a week later. It’s been nice since. 🤨

This Month’s Posts

Books Hoarded

A few of my holds that I pushed off broke free but I only borrowed A Taste for Love by Jennifer Yen and Siri, Who Am I? by Sam Tschida. The rest I’ve been utilizing the deliver later option enough times my library probably thinks I’m abusing it.

Books Devoured

So… remember my extremely strong start in January? February just laughed right in my face. I guess I was all read out from January, oops.

What I Remember Reading:

(But really, I just cheated by looking on Goodreads.)

Fandom Assemble

Media we’ve consumed and enjoyed, or what we’re looking forward to that’s been announced lately.


SHINEE’S BACK! One of the first K-Pop groups I got into released their 7th album on February 22 titled Don’t Call Me. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the album overall, but I’ve always been pretty selective with SHINee, so I’m not surprised. Favorites include Don’t Call Me and Body Rhythm.

Other Favorites:

  • GOT7 released their first song since leaving JYP titled Encore
  • Mark (GOT7) released a single called One In A Million
  • Kingdom made their debut with Excalibur
    • Um, I love the concept??? And their debut stage???
    • I also enjoyed their mini album overall and honestly they might become one of my favorite groups quickly at this rate

I have a few other songs and music videos that released this month I’ve yet to get around to… when I clear out my YouTube watch later, that is.

The Breakdown

What catastrophes has the universe handed us throughout the month? Let’s find out. 🧐


You’d think with the two extra off days right after the Lunar New Year would result in me actually getting something done, but uh… I think I kind of just abandoned life and floated throughout the month. Which… is valid and very much okay considering there’s a pandemic that people seem to think no longer exists but I guess I feel a little guilty? And I know I shouldn’t feel guilty. 😕

I think now that we’re a year in (geezus) and I’m not dealing with classes anymore (#feelsweirdstill), it’s actually really starting to hit me mentally and emotionally. Or maybe it’s long hit me but I’m just now realizing this.

What I’ve Been Doing Though

  • Messing around on Fandom Wiki
    • I just want to say the mobile version is more painful than Blogger on mobile
  • Playing mobile games
  • Sleeping and working

Honestly, I think working on the Fandom Wiki for RP purposes and listening to music has been giving me the most satisfying distraction throughout the entire month.

Let’s talk: How are you coping? What’s going on in your lives?

Sophia started blogging in February 2012 for the hell of it and is surprisingly still around. She has a GIF for nearly everything, probably listens to too much K-Pop and is generally in an existential crisis of sorts (she's trying her best). In 2020, she graduated with a Bachelor's in Communications and minor in Women's Studies. More of her bookish reviews and K-pop Roundups can be found at The Arts STL.

  1. Pandemic aside, I think you still have to process your new (so to speak) situation/adjust to it…well, OK, pandemic NOT aside, but still. In my case, reading and blogging have been staples these latest 12 months just like they were before, but then again, nothing else has changed in my life (except more tiredness and the health issues I posted about) – same job, same boredom.


  2. It’s finally starting to warm up a bit around me too, and I love it. I think it’s going to get colder as the week goes on, but at least I feel like Spring will be here soon!!!
