Happy Blog Birthday – 2 years!

I actually had a different post in mind for today (I’m rereading Six of Crows at the moment and wanted to write a First Impression), but OMG my baby is two years old, I can’t believe it!

These last two years have been the happiest of my life writing this blog. Creating posts, chatting and reading other blogs fills me with so much joy and it’s something I’m so passionate about that I’m really happy to have reached the 2 year mark!

To be honest, going back to the me 2 years ago on February 3rd, had I asked myself “Where do you see your blog in 2 years?”, I definitely would have answered “with more than 400 followers, a great community and regular blog entries”. I had no idea where my blog would lead, all I wanted was a safe space to talk about my current and all-time favorite books and I definitely didn’t expect this to develop into what it has become today.

What I am trying to say is that I am beyond thankful for every single one of you: for the ones who’ve been with me for two years who watched this blog grow, for the ones who’ve joined me on the way and for the ones who’ve just joined recently. I can’t believe people are actually reading what I have to say – this is something super magical and amazing and I can’t believe I have the opportunity to experience this.

Above everything else, I wish to thank my parents for a) financing this blog, I know I shouldn’t take that as given, but more than that for supporting my every choice, reading my posts and never doubting me!

My love goes out to everyone of you – to many more years of bookish fun!

Bye Hiatus, I’m back!

Just a little announcement, or me coming back and being active again! I haven’t been writing many blog posts lately and also haven’t read any great posts from any of my friends. The ones I’ve been posting were old ones that were prewritten as I didn’t have the energy to write new ones.

I also haven’t read a single book in 2020 (shame on me) because the past two weeks were super stressful. I had to study for multiple exams, had important presentations and were stressed every day. I didn’t have the energy to write anything after school and didn’t want to force myself when I was tired because I wanted to be my best for you guys when I wrote something. So I decided to take a small break from my blog and just focus on myself.

I did miss everything about it: the feeling of writing, of staying in touch with my friends and reading their posts, replying to comments and obviously reading.

But now I’m back, I’m ready and happy to start again and to only spread positive vibes! See you around – happy reading!

Top Ten Tuesday: books I loved with fewer than 2000 ratings

This will prove itself to be a very difficult post for me as a) it’s my mom’s birthday today (happy birthday mommy!!!) and b) I tend to go with the flow aka only reading popular books or hyped (or overhyped) books because I read most of my books based on the reviews of others. But I’ll give it a try anyways! About the meme: About this meme: Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, but is now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl!
