I'm Changing My Blog's Name and Moving to Wordpress!

Monday, July 2, 2018
hi everyone! it's been so long since i last post anything here (3 months-ish, actually?), and i have a HUGE announcement that you probably already know (hint : the title says it all).

so yeah, firstly, i change my blog's name. The Bookish Thought was created when i was 15 years old (and now i'm 19), and i feel like it no longer capture who i am now. if you notice, i rarely post anything here in the last 2 years, so i think it's time to create a new name and start blogging again.

also, i won't be blogging on blogger anymore. while blogger did nothing wrong, seems like it's only fitting if i start blogging with a new name in a new place. so yeah, i'm now on wordpress with this following address :

well, that's basically it! if you still want to see my post and interact with me (i definitely still want to interact with you <3), please consider following my blog there. for now, the only option for following is either by email or using wordpress. as for my bloglovin follower, i no longer use bloglovin since my internet provider block all access to bloglovin so i can't claim my new blog (I KNOW. so frustrating). so if you still want to see my content, please also switch to follow me by email/wordpress. i'd be forever grateful if you do this!

i guess this is it! many thanks for those who stick with me in the past 3.5 years ❤ it's been a long and amazing journey, and i learn many things from this. i really hope i'll still see you guys in my next one!

Shy aspiring artist Imogene Chively has just had a successful Season in London, complete with a suitor of her father's approval. Imogene is ambivalent about the young gentleman until he comes to visit her at the Chively estate with his younger brother in tow. When her interest is piqued, however, it is for the wrong brother. 

Charming Ben Steeple has a secret: despite being an architectural apprentice, he has no drawing aptitude. When Imogene offers to teach him, Ben is soon smitten by the young lady he considers his brother's intended. 

But hiding their true feelings becomes the least of their problems when, after a series of "accidents," it becomes apparent that someone means Ben harm. And as their affection for each other grows—despite their efforts to remain just friends—so does the danger. . .

Title : The Unexpected Everything
Author : Morgan Matson
Genre : YA contemporary
Release Date : May 3rd, 2016
Publisher : Simon & Schuster


Andie had it all planned out. When you are a politician’s daughter who’s pretty much raised yourself, you learn everything can be planned or spun, or both. Especially your future. Important internship? Check. Amazing friends? Check. Guys? Check (as long as we’re talking no more than three weeks).

But that was before the scandal. Before having to be in the same house with her dad. Before walking an insane number of dogs. That was before Clark and those few months that might change her whole life. Because here’s the thing—if everything’s planned out, you can never find the unexpected. And where’s the fun in that?

Review : The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell

Friday, January 5, 2018
Title : The Last Magician
Author : Lisa Maxwell
Series : The Last Magician #1
Genre : YA fantasy, historical-fiction
Release Date : July 18th, 2017
Publisher : Simon Pulse


Stop the Magician. Steal the book. Save the future.

In modern-day New York, magic is all but extinct. The remaining few who have an affinity for magic—the Mageus—live in the shadows, hiding who they are. Any Mageus who enters Manhattan becomes trapped by the Brink, a dark energy barrier that confines them to the island. Crossing it means losing their power—and often their lives.

Esta is a talented thief, and she’s been raised to steal magical artifacts from the sinister Order that created the Brink. With her innate ability to manipulate time, Esta can pilfer from the past, collecting these artifacts before the Order even realizes she’s there. And all of Esta’s training has been for one final job: traveling back to 1902 to steal an ancient book containing the secrets of the Order—and the Brink—before the Magician can destroy it and doom the Mageus to a hopeless future.

But Old New York is a dangerous world ruled by ruthless gangs and secret societies, a world where the very air crackles with magic. Nothing is as it seems, including the Magician himself. And for Esta to save her future, she may have to betray everyone in the past.
