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.

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…

Made You Up, or didn’t she?

Made You Up has been on my radar for ages, but if it wasn’t for a blind book date at YALC, I still wouldn’t have added it to my shelves. How can I say no to a book with the very intriguing “reality is not what you perceive”-line on the wrapped cover? When I uncovered this book from the wrapping, I literally screamed. Maybe I was going to start reading this one very soon after all.

August 2018 Reading Wrap-up

Look, okay, I don’t know what happened in this month either. Remember two months ago when I was only able to read 5 books in one month? This month I read (*mumbles something unintelligibly*) … … … (*whispers*) I read 17 books. The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen My reread of the first book got me so…

When We Collided, a tale of a book with two faces

Finding myself in the mood for a cute contemporary read, I decided to pick up When We Collided from my shelf where it had been standing for years. It came in a bookish subscription box years ago, but nothing ever enticed me to pick it up. Until one summery evening where I didn’t have a lot of other contemporaries on my shelf…

July 2018 Reading Wrap-up

Back in June, I read five books over the course of one month and I was seriously wondering what July would bring. With a readathon packed in, there was no way this one wasn’t going to be just as bad, right? I ended up being back in my reading game and finishing 14 books. Like,…

The Girl With No Past, help her figure it out!

When Ledge contacted me if I wanted to read and review her book, I was a little hesitant right up until I read the short description of her book. Hell yeah I wanted to read The Girl With No Past! And to be honest, if it wasn’t for a weird reading slump that suddenly appeared and my mom stealing my ereader, I would have picked it up IMMEDIATELY.

June 2018 Reading Wrap-up

I guessed I was on a reading roll after April and May, and hoped to continue on the same pace for this month. But, I didn’t. It started very soon in the month where I suddenly felt a reading slump coming up. I was barely getting through my book, my attention was everywhere but where…
