Favourite K-Pop Releases in July
My reading during July plodded along nicely and as expected, I finished reading 4 novels and am currently reading Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas.
I’ve started playing and streaming Minecraft again and I forgot how much fun I have with it, especially now that they have added loads of new stuff.
This month I made more of an effort towards my physical health and lost about 5lbs, not much but it’s a step in the right direction and I’m learning what works best for me.
I also took the scary step of making Booktube videos, I’m already really excited to post more and hope I am able to stick with it.
BTS – Blood Sweat & Tears
I certainly can’t have a most aesthetically pleasing K-pop MVs list without this now can I? I’m sticking to 1 MV per group/artist and everything about this just screams beauty to me (no not just the members). The whole set and colour pallet is gorgeous and scenes like Taehyung under the sheet and JK floating in the air are breathtaking. Also how paint features in this MV with the splattering and when it runs down Jimin’s face, just yes. This MV and the whole Wings era was inspired by a book called Demian by Hermann Hesse.
NU’EST W – Where You At
Nu’est have a lot of aesthetically pleasing MVs but I’m picking Where You At for the variety. I really love the individual member room sets and how they feature different colour pallets. The purple church and beach scenes are my favourites along with Ren in that red lace blindfold.
More to come! Which K-pop MVs do you find the most aesthetically pleasing?

Favourite K-Pop Releases in June
My reading really wasn’t that great in June, I just wasn’t feeling it, and Wind-Up Bird took me so long to finish (not that I didn’t enjoy it, it was just very long and heavy). I’m back in more of a reading mood for July and am excited for my TBR so we will see if this month will be better.
I feel like my blogging kind of fell off towards the end of the month, like my reading, even though it has been the best month so far for view/visits. I’m going to try and post more in July for sure.
My friend Lena picked up a 2DS so we could play Animal Crossing: New Leaf and it’s been really fun playing it again while I wait for the Switch game to come out. I’ve also been constantly playing BTS World since it was launched last week O-O
I’ve decided to casually learn a second language using DuoLingo (I bet you can’t guess which language haha), this is the first time trying to learn a language and actually wanting to do it, rather than being forced to learn German in school which I literally only remember a few words of now. So far so good and it’s actually pretty fun!
I’ve also (very recently) taken trying to lose weight seriously, I really hope i stick to it cos damn I feel like a whale. Will update on progress in next months wrap up and possibly do some posts on it if it goes well.
Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch update:
Looks amazing but got pushed back to March 2020
Me and my friend Lena (who also loves k-pop) thought it would be fun to do one of these, and seeing as we both love BTS a lot, to do one featuring only BTS! This is just for fun and our own opinions.
What are your BTS favourites?

I decided to try and rank the current 21 BTS title tracks because I like to torture myself apparently. This is purely based on my own opinions and the music only, not the music videos. Some of these songs I’ve listened to a lot more than others and some I have grown to like more over time so this list may well change in the future. Also because I’m Taehyung trash, I decided to make each screenshot one of him.
