My Top 18 Books Read in 2018

Time to sit down and think about my top 18 books read in 2018. Even though I think this is a fun, important post, I takes AGES to draft. Which books were my absolute favorite? How do they rank? It took some puzzling and nail-biting (and turning the whole list upside-down three times), but here…

Anticipated 2019 Winter Book Releases

Bring on the blankets, hot cocoa, sweaters and socks, it’s time for winter! Luckily, there will be a LOT of new releases to get me through the long evenings. Without further ado, here are all the books I’m desperately looking forward to. Fated by Teri Terry I’m just one girl. What can I do? Sam’s…

Fall 2018 Book Haul

Welcome to a new segment on my blog! I love seeing and reading everyone’s book haul posts, but as I’m not allowed to buy more than two books a month (damn book buying budget), I never actually wrote any myself. I went a little crazy this Fall in the book buying department (and now I’m definitely feeling…

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…

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….

Series I Need To Finish, Part 4

How am I already on my fourth list of series I need to finish? After reading all the books on list number one and list number two, I have now finished list number three. I started these lists when I noticed that I have A LOT of unfinished series on my shelf, and it’s a…

Birthday readathon

The idea of an ultimate readathon-con is an idea I’ve been playing around with for a while now, but I can’t just organize a con with hotel rooms, activities and dinner. One of my bookclub buddies ran with my idea for her birthday party, and I’m now doing it too for mine. Two weekends ago, from…

Anticipated 2018 Fall Book Releases

Every August when the days are clearly becoming shorter and the evenings colder, I’m dreading what comes next. I have an absolute HATE for winter with all its coldness and snowiness and I’m never prepared for it to come. What I forget every year though, is that between summer and winter lies a whole other…

6 Books That Deserve More Love

I’ve been toying with the idea behind this post for quite some time, trying to figure out how to best do it. What defines an underappreciated book? A book that deserves way more love in the YA community than it has been getting? A book that isn’t known by everyone, but everyone should read? In…
