Moving On


Hello everyone! This post is a bit difficult to write as I don't know how I want to formulate my words. For those who have been reading this blog frequently, you have no idea how much your support means to me. Forever Obsession started as a diary in 2012 with posts that documented my trip in Taiwan and took flight from there.

In 2013, I made the decision to begin actively blogging and as a result, chose to focus on book reviews and join the book community. I have had the privilege of watching Forever Obsession grow and while the reader count is small, it's become my outlet throughout my years in high school and will remain one of the most treasured memories in my heart.

If you guys have noticed recently, the amount of posts have been seriously lacking as I've struggled to come up with any source of inspiration and motivation to blog. There were moments when I wanted to write a huge rant about college or just a ramble post, but felt that it was out of place among the long history of book posts and for some strange reason, that became the reason I held back from posting.

With the new year, I'm determined more than ever to reconnect but while planning out new posts, I just had the desire to start a new chapter of my blogging life. Forever Obsession went through so many changes as I discovered what worked for me and how I wanted to grow as a blogger. 

I think I made my decision to officially switch when I went back to Tumblr and made a new account under the name: Le Petit Photograph. After reconnecting on Tumblr, I found several really amazing lifestyle blogs and I guess that solidified the decision. That and a debate session with Claudia. 

So today I sat down and did it - I made a new blog that shares the same name as my Tumblr and switched all of my social media links to fit that new blog. Forever Obsession will still be around, I debated whether I wanted to just change the name or private this one, but I decided to keep it up. I might post from time to time, but I plan on officially moving over to Le Petit Photograph with this being my last post.

This is both bittersweet and exciting as I'm pumped to explore the different paths I can take with the new blog, but I'm going to miss saying "Forever Obsession." Le Petit Photograph will still have book reviews, but I want to incorporate my life and thoughts as well. I hope that you guys are excited as well and please check out Le Petit Photograph by clicking the banner and following the next chapter of my adventure there!

Songs on Repeat - 2nd Half of 2016

Hello everyone! I thought I'd share 10 of my favorite songs that have been on constant replay ever since I started listening to them. I don't really have a favorite genre but over the summer I finally caved to Claudia and tried out K-pop. It's seriously a rabbit hole that doesn't stop and once you start there's seriously no going back. I'm now waiting for some of my favorite English speaking artists to release new music so I can finally sing along >< Anyway, let's get into the list!


Witch - Boyfriend
Gorilla & Can You Feel It - Pentagon
Always in My Heart -  Joy and Seulong (SM Station)
Closer - Oh My Girl
Whistle - Blackpink
Mirror & You're Pitiful - Fiestar
Dear Bride & L.U.V. - BTOB (Japanese)
The Light - The Ark

While there are a ton of other songs that I have been replaying, these are the ones that stood out the most. I definitely want to start doing Music Mondays or Thursday Tracks more and sharing songs that I've been playing on repeat, especially since I'm finding new favorites all the time. If you'd like that, let me know in the comments below. Also, if you're a fellow k-pop listener, let me know who some of your favorite artists/groups are down below ~

My Favorite Books of 2016

Hello everyone! I can't believe that we're already three days into 2017! I haven't exactly been on top of blogging for the later half of last year and I apologize for falling into such a long slump. Hopefully with the New Year, I'm able to to get back on track with reading and blogging! Well, with the end of 2016, it's time to share my top favorite books of 2016 (in no particular order)!


All covers are linked to Goodreads and I have reviews for most of them on the blog! There are a couple that I still have to review and I'll have those up as soon as I can! Let me know in the comments down below what some of your favorite books for 2016 were!
