Top Ten Tuesday: books I loved but never reviewed!

It’s been quite some time – I’m back. I’ve spent the last week in Vienna, but unfortunately had to work on a presentation for school which had me reading and writing all day long (unfortunately about Presidential Doctrines and not YA fiction!) – and so I haven’t had the desired time continue reading Rivers of London or to create some content for my blog. Well, I managed to take some time off today and so here we are: listing all the books I read and loved, but never reviewed!

First Impressions: Rivers of London

Anyone whose been reading my blog for a while knows that I am an absolute freak when it comes to London. Favorite place on earth. And then you might wonder why it’s only after such a long time that I pick up this book, Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch even though it explores London in such depth. Well, I’ve only this year brought it over myself to move out of my YA safe space and to explore some more genres, like fantasy crime. Here are my first impressions!

Walking through Vienna – and its bookshops!

I haven’t had the time to write a proper entry since I’ve been away for the past week! Me and my parents went hiking in Tyrol and now me and my dad are spending the next two weeks at my grandma’s house in Vienna: and today was our first full day full of adventures!

Life and reading update, summer plans!

It’s been quite a while, I have had no time to write, post or read any real book over the past days, so I guess here we are: me lying in bed on the evening before my last school day and finally managing to write something as it’s my only free evening. What you’re in for: everything that’s going on in my life, what I’m reading/will read over summer, and my overall plans for August and the start of September (also in regard of my senior year)!

Bookstores + Libraries I’d love to visit – Listed!

All I wanted to do this morning is go to a great, maybe cozy bookstore and just spend hours in there going through thousands of books and then maybe end up buying one. But since I’m home and have been at my local bookstore millions of times, I can’t do that. So what’s better than to write a Listed! post with all the amazing bookstores and libraries I want to visit, whether I’ve only heard of them or actually discovered them already!

Let’s Talk Bookish: blog schedules!

I don’t know whether I am the right person to write about this topic – blog schedules – as I am not even capable of writing Let’s Talk Bookish on the actual discussion day, Friday. Nevertheless, who could turn down a fruitful discussion? Today I’ll talk about my usual blog schedule, whether I stick to it and then some pros and cons for me! And not to forget: the discussion is as always hosted by  Dani @Literary Lion and Rukky @Eternity Books!

Save Me – Review

I usually never read books in one or two days because I never have the time to do so – but yesterday, I went to the store at eleven am and spent the entire day reading. Today I read the last 100 pages after school and now I am done, desperate to buy the sequel tomorrow and shattered to 100000 pieces because this book was so incredibly great and there isn’t a better feeling in the world than after finishing an overwhelming book in a short time. Here are my thoughts on Mona Kasten’s novel Save Me!

Books I really want to read during summer break – Listed!

I feel like it’s been forever since I wrote a Listed! post, so here we are! I have a very very detailed and thought-through book list in mind for the books I want to read this summer break and so I hope this post will help me realize this. Because – I can see it coming already: I thoroughly plan what to read and bring on my summer break and I never end up reading the books I brought, but instead discover new amazing books, instantly buy them and never read the ones on my TBR. So maybe, just maybe, this post will hype up the books I want to read so that I can, for once, stick to my plans. Plus, I’m just about to head to the bookstore to buy one or two books I’m planning to read during the first vacay, so there will be no weaseling out for them!

Let’s Talk Bookish: food that reminds you of certain books!

It’s time for yet another Let’s Talk Bookish post and today, the topic combines two of my favorite hobbies: booking and cooking/baking! So let’s see which books remind of which food, my favorite snacks while eating and which things I’d love to try out! And not to forget: the discussion is as always hosted by  Dani @Literary Lion and Rukky @Eternity Books!
