Let’s Talk Bookish: romance as a subplot!

We’re heading into December, slowly but surely, and me and my friends have already baked Christmas cookies and the Christmas playlist has been blasting for more than two weeks (featuring Michael Buble and Motown obviously!). The next two months are filled with exams, we had one today, one next Wednesday and Friday and then like that for the next several weeks – so fun. I hope I still find some time in between: especially for topics like these! Romance as a subplot: I’ll list my faves and least favorites and I guess just about everything that comes to my mind (very structured, right?). And not to forget: the discussion is as always hosted by  Dani @Literary Lion and Rukky @Eternity Books!

Let’s Talk Bookish: the care and keeping of a TBR

October flew by: another Friday, another Let’s Talk Bookish and then I opened my calendar and realized “It’s October 16th”. It’ll all going by too fast, or not fast enough because I am already feeling the Christmas Spirit and have made myself various Chai Lattes with cinnamon and hazelnut milk! But back to the books: here’s all about my TBR! And not to forget: the discussion is as always hosted by  Dani @Literary Lion and Rukky @Eternity Books!

Rereading Eclipse – Review

First off: senior year has hit me hard, there’s no excuse and so I have had zero time to write anything because I’d rather write few structured posts rather than many sloppy ones. Secondly, I’ve finished rereading Eclipse, the third Twilight book and it’s fair to say I have some thoughts. So here is my *sloppy* review with some unstructured very intuitively written-down sentences.

Let’s Talk Bookish: the pros and cons of book blogging!

WOW – first week of senior year is done and it was super fun, but also stressful and overwhelming. So it’s SUNDAY and I only start writing now.

Let’s Talk Bookish: wrap up of the latest topics!

It’s been a while since I posted something, so hello September! The tragic truth is that the summer wasn’t as relaxing and blog-productive as I wanted it to be: I worked on (and finished) two presentations and wrote two 30-pages summaries of my main courses for graduation – and so I basically two full weeks with nothing in my head and the rest was work. And so I’ve missed a few things here and one thing I’ve missed the most are the awesome topics of Let’s Talk Bookish, so I’ll wrap them all up: how I encourage others to read, is three stars a good rating and my online persona! And not to forget: the discussion is as always hosted by  Dani @Literary Lion and Rukky @Eternity Books!

Rereading Twilight – Review

I actually did it – I reread the first Twilight novel by Stephanie Meyer. But it wasn’t totally out of the blue: her new book, Midnight Sun, has been all over the news lately. I’ve read so many negative reviews claiming it to be super annoying, only describing Edward’s hunger and his desperate tries to keep his blood lust under control. Briefly said: I had no other book to read, saw Twilight on my shelf and made the desperate move to take it with me – and I wasn’t able to put it down, despite some very negative thoughts. Here is my wildly confusing, irrational and controversial review of rereading a series I always put in the “I read it when I was 12 and was the biggest fan but now it’s rubbish and I hate it” box.
