I’m 14 Books Behind and I Feel (not so) Fine

It's true. I'm 14 books behind on my Goodreads 2019 challenge and I don't feel so good about that. Last year I read 38 books! And the year before that, 55! I thought I was getting back into my groove but apparently, I'm not. And it's not a nice feeling. I am watching a record-breaking [...]

What I’ve Read This Summer

I haven't written anything even remotely related to books in a loooong time. And that is because I haven't been reading. I talked about it how my anxiety stopped me from enjoying reading, but I was on holiday for two weeks and I was so completely relaxed that I could finally get into some books. [...]

I Haven’t Read a Book in 5 Months and I Blame my Anxiety

It's true. Well, almost. I read a collction of quotes by Oscar Wilde while on the train a couple of days ago. And that's it. I follow some people on Youtube that talk about books with passion and love and I haven't been able to read. I'm so out of the loop, I don't know [...]

Holiday Wrap-Up – Summer 2018

So... I came back from my holiday! More than a month ago. Don't get on my back, I'm all over the place. If you look back at my posts, the timeline is way off. I made huge miscalculations and posted stuff before other stuff (like my Riverdale review) but it doesn't matter! I'm here to [...]

June 2018 – Reading TBR (Help Me!)

So... I haven't read anything recently. Well, not just recently. According to my Goodreads reading challenge, I'm 10 books behind schedule. 10 BOOKS The last proper book I've read is a chick-lit "The Wedding Date" and before that I read "Feminism is for everybody" by Bell Hooks. That's it. If you do not count the [...]

10 Books I Loved in 2017

I am subscribed to the lovely Sanne's "booksandquills" youtube channel and she posted the top 10 books she read in 2017. So, I decided to do it as well. Here is my list of the top 10 books I've read in 2017! The Hating Game A great contemporary romance about two co-workers up for the [...]

Reading Wrap-up – March 2018

March has come and gone! I can't believe tomorrow is already April. I haven't read that much this month. My Goodreads reading challenge is telling me I'm two books behind schedule... Apparently, I've only read two books in March and to be fair... I'm quite disappointed with myself. Conversations With Friends: A Novel by Sally [...]

January / February Reading Wrap-up 2018

So far in these first two months of the year I've read 10 books. Some of them were university related, one was really bad, three where about feminism, one about politics,  one contemporary literature and a re-read!!!! The first book of the year was hell. I believe there is a circle of Dante Inferno where [...]

Book Review: Miracle on 5th Street by Sarah Morgan

THIS CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THIS SHITTY BOOK. I shouldn't even write this disclaimer because I would do you a favour by telling you the end. This was so bad. Like, really really bad. I joined a great book chick-lit club and up until this one, the books I've read were really good.  For example, they [...]

2017 Reading Wrap-up and 2018 Reading Goals

Sooooo... it's 2018! Personally, I don't care whether it's 2017 or 2018. It's still the same. No difference whatsoever. The only exception is that my goodreads reading challenge has started again. I'm here to do my reading wrap-up for 2017 and share some of the reading goals I want to achieve this year. At the [...]

November 2017 Wrap-up

I can't believe I did a TBR post and I almost stuck to it!!! At the beginning of the month I did a post about the books I was planning on reading and I never follow them. But I did! This makes me happier than it should. Literally, the first sentence in that post was: [...]

November 2017: Books I’m Thankful For

I found this great group on Goodread.com that gives you monthly recommendation on books that other people enjoyed! It think it's a great wait to discover novels that otherwise I would have never discovered. So, here is my personal list of books I'm thankful for: Trevor Noah - Born A Crime I loved this book. [...]

November TBR 2017

I don't know why I am doing this because I know I won't be able to stick to it, but here I am again with another TBR. I have been reading Stephen King's "It" for the past weeks and I'm still only half-way throught it. It's soooooo long and scary and disgusting AND so creepy. [...]

The Guilty Reader Tag

I saw Jean from Jean Bookishthoughts do this tag on YouTube and I loved it! It was created by ReadLikeWildfire and I though I'd give it a go myself. I haven't been a huge reader in my teenage years and now that I'm officially an adult, I have started enjoying it more. My "read" bookshelf [...]

Holiday Wrap-up 2017

I'm back from my holiday! It was good, I got super tanned and read quite a lot. Let me start by saying this: I did not read as much as I wanted: there was Wi-Fi at the beach! FREE WI-FI!!! For the first time EVER! John Oliver was on, loads of makeup tutorial and a [...]

Summer TBR 2017

Since I've started watching Booktube, I've so much more into reading. When I was in high school I spent so much time reading and taking notes that the last thing I wanted to do, was to pick up a book. But now I have more time, I study literature at university and I wanted to [...]

February 2017 Wrap-up: Books I’ve Read

Here I am again with another monthly wrap-up. I'm late on publishing this post, but I kind of forgot that I started writing it. I'm all over the place at the moment. BTW, I never thought I would enjoy doing something like this, but I couldn't wait for the end of February to publish this [...]

January Wrap-up: Books I’ve Read

I've never done anything like this before, so bear with me. In my Goodreads "2017 Reading Challenge" I put 30 books. I was being optimistic because last year I barely managed to get 20 done. Since joining the website and subscribing to a few people on YouTube, I've been trying to get back into reading, [...]

“Born a Crime” by Trevor Noah

I finished reading this book a couple of minutes ago and as soon as I turned over the past page (and I finished crying) I started typing this review. As I wrote on my Goodreads page: ONE OF THE BEST BOOK I HAVE READ. EVER. I've discovered Trevor Noah as a talk show host a [...]
