Bookish Lessons from 2018 & A Glance on the New Year

Hello my dear readers, and a Happy New Year to all of you! It might be a bit late to reminisce about 2018, being a week already in the new year, but not doing so would feel like leaving a chapter unfinished and well, here I am. Instead of going through my favourite or least…

August 2018 Wrap-Up: Summer, Favourites and TATBILB

August was great. At least reading-wise. I really intended to make more time for reading, and managed it! A big help in this were audio books, which are just incredibly convenient if you are in a busy month. In fact, August was so busy that I completely forgot to upload this wrap-up! For the sake…

June 2018 Wrap-Up: Glasgow, Reading and New Beginnings

Hello my dear friends! I cannot believe June is already over. It’s usually my favourite month of the year, and indeed it was. The fact that I started it in the UK probably helps, but there were a lot more contributing factors. First, though, books! BOOKS I READ The Fellowship of the Ring – J. R.…

April 2018 Wrap-Up: My 2018 Highlight has arrived!

Hello dear readers, April is over already – how time flies! This month was definitely better on bookish terms, but still not where I would like it to be. I finished six books and had aimed for ten, but this is also double the number of  my last reading month, so it’s fine for now.…

March 2018 Wrap-Up: Book fair, Marvel and Macarons

Hello dear readers! It’s a little late, and to be honest I kind of forgot about writing a wrap-up for March (yes shame on me), but hey, it’s here now! It was an interesting month, although I once again finished only three books. This it made me think about why reading became more exhausting than…

February 2018 Wrap-Up: Fewer books and bigger life decisions

Hello dear readers! Contrary to what I promised myself in January, this month was a difficult one and I spent even less time on reading, blogging, Instagram and other things that usually make me happy. This alone should’ve been a red flag, but sometimes you only realise how bad things are when you are feeling…

October 2017 Wrap-Up

Hello you lovely people ☕ In the words of a tweet I read earlier: October is now Oct-over, and therefore my last free-to-read-all-the-time month has gone, which is very saddening of course. But you bet that I used this time as well as possible! I finished five books, started one and listened to five audiobooks.…
