Why I Am Waiting For The Bookly Android App

Today I’m sharing a post that is a bit different than my usual posts so bear with me. Oh and this is absolutely not sponsored. (Please keep reading…) I’ve discovered a few weeks ago that if I don’t read on a regular basis, it messes with my mental health, and if I don’t read before bed…

October 2018 Reading Wrap-up

October is traditionally the month that fall really hits with the days getting shorter and the reading time cosier. For me, it begins a period of more reading, but it was also the month I vowed to take my physical exercise more seriously and spent two days a week dying during CrossFit. Somehow though, I…

You Only Live Once, so how do you want to live your life?

A new Jess Vallance book? I want to read it. It’s about the pressure we live under and what’s actually important in life? I NEED to read it. That was basically my thought process when I heard of the existence of You Only Live Once, and I was determined to quickly get my hands on it and devour it.

Young Adult Tropes I’m Not Taking Anymore

With it being Cliche Day today, I couldn’t help but think about the YA tropes that are so overdone it isn’t even funny anymore. There are some tropes or cliches that annoy me (especially in the romance-department), but I think that I’m not that easily bugged either. Still here are 4 tropes that I’m honestly not…

4 Books That Will Give You The Creeps

I’m not as Halloween-obsessed as the rest of the world seems to be (probably because I’m an absolute wimp and don’t see the appeal of intentionally getting scared), but that doesn’t mean that I don’t pick up a scary book from time to time. (Am I contradicting myself here?) Just in time for Halloween tomorrow, I’m sharing…

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon October 2018

Every time I participate in Dewey’s 24 hour readathon, I swear to myself that I would try to read the full 24 hour the next time. And every time that next time comes around, I chicken out and set my goal to 16 hours read with 8 hours of sleep. Unsurprisingly, that happened again this…

To DNF Or Not To DNF

For as long as I can remember, I haven’t been able to DNF (Do Not Finish) a book to save my life. It doesn’t matter than I’m struggling, even hating the book, I will not put it down until I reach the ending. Why you ask? I know it’s ridiculous to keep reading a book that…

Words I Learned Through Reading, Part 3

I’m not a native English speaker and even though I have quite the extensive English vocabulary, I still encounter new words through reading in every book. I freaking adore it when an author uses some very big words and in Words I Learned Through Reading, Part 1, I already shared my first batch of words….

That’s Not What Happened, but what did happen then?

From the moment I learned of That’s Not What Happened’s existence, I knew I had to get my hands on it. Even though I was a bit wary of Keplinger writing a book about a school shooting, I was still curious to see if she was going to be able to pull it off. Color me intrigued.

September 2018 Reading Wrap-up

In case you don’t remember, back in August I somehow managed to read 17 books. Don’t ask me how I didn’t it, but to prove that it’s not something that happens often, I also managed to read exactly one book by September 14th. Go figure. Warcross by Marie Lu This is the October pick of…
