Broadchurch – Mini Review

It’s been one hell of a week – I’ve been living at my aunt’s house, writing and doing things for school, watching series and going out and tragically, never being able to finish a book. I’m still in the middle of Goblet of Fire (I hope to finish it this weekend) and have just finished watching the first season of Broadchurch with my mum and we are absolutely stunned – so here’s a small review!

Chain of Gold – Spoiler Review

Chain of Gold left such an impression on me and impacted me more than I thought. I have the urge to talk more about the book, to go into detail and so here is my SPOILER review. Please, if you haven’t read the book and consider to do so, read my other review (click here).

What quarantine has taught me, life update + Harry Potter all the way!

This is a kind of personal, cooking and bookish post all at once. I didn’t have a lot of time to catch up on reading the past few weeks (while other people have all the time in the world at home, going back to school is proving itself to be kind of stressful!) and so I really wanted to share some of my personal thoughts regarding the current situation and what I made of the past few months and also experienced!

Top Ten Tuesday: my favorite opening lines!

I actually planned on writing my own post on opening lines after this, but then discovered it’s today’s topic (spooky), but great for me, less work and more reading! I love opening lines as they can overwhelm you and make you fall in love with a book instantly or making you realize that you’re maybe not made for that book – so they have a lot of power, probably more than they realize.

Let’s Talk Bookish: how to write your favorite post!

What a great idea: explaining how you write your favorite post. I’m super torn between discussion writing and doing a tag, but since “how I do tags” can be answered in one sentence – I answer the questions/state my opinion -, let’s do the discussion post! So here’s my blogging 101: how I write my discussions! Let’s Talk Bookish is as always hosted by Dani @ Literary Lion and Rukky @ Eternity Books!

Top Ten Tuesday: the reasons why I love my favorite books!

I just had my Faust exam and I’m super happy to finally have it off my back and to actually say: that wasn’t too bad! Not the best essay ever written, but the exam ones rarely are (at least in my case!). It’s time for another tag and today’s theme was the reason I love… and I chose my favorite books: they’re loved all over the world, but everyone has slightly different reasons or sees the potential in different aspects, so here are the ultimate reasons why I love my favorite books!

Rereading Faust to prepare for my exam – Reflexion

I read Faust during the Christmas holiday and so it’s been a while: we talked about the drama during the whole months of January and February and actually wanted to write our exam straight away, but then corona and lockdown complicated the situation. I’m back in school now and have to take my exam on Tuesday and so I’ve had so spend a little more time with Goethe again – so here are my new and more-structured, well-informed thoughts!
