My (bookish) Christmas Presents

I've gotten really amazing Christmas presents. The biggest presents was something I really didn't see coming. In Germany, it's tradition to unwrap you Christmas presents on Christmas Eve, so we did: Christmas Eve Morning. Not traditional, but we just couldn't wait. Since we're both adults, we get to make our own rules. Yay for adulting!... Continue Reading →

Book Unhaul 2017 Part 1

I've written a couple of posts before, about unhauling books. It definitely feels very freeing to just let go of the ones I didn't like, or the ones I'll never read again.  Unhaul #1 (2015) Unhaul #2 (2015) Unhaul #3 (2016) Unhaul #4 (2016, Mari Kondo) Like I did the end of last year, I'm...

June Wrap-Up

June didn't go as well, reading-wise, as the previous months. I finished a total of 6 books, which doesn't sound to bad, until you realize, that of those 5 books, 2 were cookbooks. Cookbooks are really quick to go through, so I'm not even sure if you should count them, but I do (because I... Continue Reading →

April & May Wrap-Up

I've done fairly well with the amount of books I've read in April and May. I've read a total of 13 books. Which puts the total amount of books I've read this year at 29. According to Goodreads, I'm a couple books ahead of my reading goal of 52. So, all in all I'm pretty... Continue Reading →

Bookhaul: April & May

Don't be scared, but be warned. It's a long list. I was lucky enough to find someone giving away their entire YA English collection and get a bunch of books from them. Also allowing me to spend most of my money otherwise. So, sit back and relax. It's gonna take a while. In the other... Continue Reading →

Book unhaul #3 – first 6 months of 2016

In the past 6 months, I've gotten rid of quite a few books again. Books I either didn't like, don't see myself ever rereading or those I didn't even finish. I find it's always sad to see books go, however it also feels freeing: getting rid of items I no longer need in my life,... Continue Reading →

Review: Silber – das dritte Buch der Träume by Kerstin Gier

Synopsis Der Korridor mit seinen verschiedenfarbigen Türen und dem sanften Licht hätte heiter und friedlich wirken können, aber das tat er nicht. Die Stille hatte etwas Lauerndes und es war nicht auszumachen, von wo das Licht überhaupt kam. Trotzdem liebte ich diesen Ort und die Vorstellung, dass hinter jeder der Türen eine andere Seele träumte,... Continue Reading →

A-Z bookish survey

This survey was created by Jamie from Perpetual Page Turner. I saw this floating around the blogosphere and thought I'd give it a shot as well. Most answers were pretty predictable though if you've read any of my previous posts about favorite/most read books. Nonetheless, I hope you still enjoy it! Author you’ve read the most...

August wrap-up

Wow, August has come and gone. Sometimes it felt like it went by too-fast, especially with everything I had to turn in to finish my Master's; it felt like I didn't have enough time. Because of that (and because I'm binge watching Star Trek: Voyager), I've not read too much this month. Still, I've managed... Continue Reading →

July Wrap-Up

I wasn't quite sure how to do my July wrap-up. Since I've been doing the Sunday Post, it seemed like it might be nicer to wrap up a whole month of blogging, instead of just telling you which books I've read. Sure, it's interesting, but at the same time a list of books is also... Continue Reading →

June bookhaul & wrap-up

Once again, I bought way too many books. I don't know, but it just seems to happen that way. It's never planned. However, I've also gotten through quite a few books this month, so I believe that makes up for it, right? Anyway, here's the books I bought/received this month: 1. The Young Elites by Marie...
