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…

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…

The August 2018 Oh So Criminal Illumicrate Unboxing

I’ve had multiple book subscriptions in the past, Owlcrate, The YA Chronicles, Illumicrate, I’ve had and loved them all. Unfortunately I stopped all my subscriptions in 2016 after buying a house as I couldn’t justify the cost any more. And it was so, so sad to not have these boxes waiting for me on a…

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…

Magical Readathon 2018: Sitting My OWLs

I had no knowledge of the Magical Readathon‘s existence until I saw Catriona of Little Book Owl‘s TBR and I totally felt like I was missing out. Right up until I realized it was only August 5th and I had accidentally already read books that fitted with the readathon. So hell yeah I was going…

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…

My 4 Auto-buy Authors

Every reader has their set of authors who they love so much that they just buy every new book that the author publishes. And I have to admit that even I, for whom it is more important what the story is about then who wrote it, have such a set of auto-buy authors. All the…
