Top Ten Tuesday: questions I would ask my favorite authors

I’ve been super inconsistent in posting/checking in on my blog – very sorry for that. I’ve been working really hard on another presentation for school, have been reading Twilight (very guilty of that) and have been living at my aunt’s house for the past week and am having the time of my life alone at home while she’s working: taking hikes, going swimming, reading, working and eating! Anyways, let’s get on with all the questions I would die to ask all my favorite authors!

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!

Top Ten Tuesday: books I’ve added to my TBR and forgotten why!

And onto another tag: today I’ll list up all the random books on my TBR list that made sense at some point, but which are just unexplainable now. I usually add books very quickly, but I’m not much of a forgetter, so I hope I’ll be able to list some books (for the sake of this post, it would mean heavenly order for my TBR shelf). So let’s see!

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.

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!

Top Ten Tuesday: my bookish party!

Here we go again, two days back in school and it’s a totally different world: I can’t hug my friends, no group work, only some special courses and everything with a great distance. The only two big advantages: one of my best friends is staying at my house because hers is too far from school to drive there every day for only two hours to spend there – and we all get to bike to school together. That’s my corona update, here we go now with the bookish part. I invite you all to my bookish party and will describe it!

Top Ten Tuesday: books I wish I’d read as a child!

It’s Tuesday, I’m currently watching Blacklist with my mother, but just now her friend called and she doesn’t seem to stop talking any time soon – so here we go! Here are the books I wish I’d read as a child – some of them I read later, some of them I never had the chance to catch up on!

Top Ten Tuesday: books I read because of FOMO

Another Tuesday, I should be doing some home schooling, but oh well! Today I’ll be listing all the books I read because of FOMO – the fear of missing out. And while that might not be super obvious, there are quite a few books that I read because I wanted to be able to discuss them with the community! It was primarily in my younger days when I was more insecure about my posts and cared more for stats and followers and when I was new to my blog: I think that’s probably the case for most bloggers because they want to fit in and be part of the group. Now, however, I almost always read what I want and when I do read books that are super hyped (I do follow the hype train!), it’s not because I wish to discuss them with others, but because I am intrigued by the book itself, the discussion is the cherry on top!
