Let’s Talk Bookish: what makes a book YA?

Another week is over, we’re in July already and my summer break starts in three weeks?!

Anyways, back to the books: today I’ll talk about the aspects that make books YA, some problems I’ve had with YA and list some faves of mine!

Let’s Talk Bookish: what do you look for in a review?

It’s been quite a while, but I’m back: several tests done, two to go. Anyways, I am super excited to get back on track and why not start with Let’s Talk Bookish – especially, when I suggested the topic. I’m super interested what all the other came up with, so if you’ve participated: comment! Let’s Talk Bookish is as always hosted by  Dani @ Literary Lion and Rukky @ Eternity Books!

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag ft. me crumbling down

2020 is more than half-way over and I’m stick stuck in March. Corona made me loose track of time, I feel like we skipped the whole spring season and to be honest, we were thrown into summer?! During the past month, we slowly returned to reality, I have normal school again and that is something I’m immensely grateful for – some exams coming up (not very cool), but I am ready to enjoy summer evenings with my friends and am super excited for the trips my family has planned for summer break!

However: my reading, very unpredicted, suffered immensely this year. Normal as it started, I was suffocating in school work and then corona said hi and home schooling was even more intense and I haven’t had much time to read. So this should be fun, with the little amount of read books so far. By the way, I got the idea from Kaya @afictionalbookworm – so check out her post as well!

Let’s talk bookish – anti heros!

I’m back – studying and reading (currently in the middle of rereading My Lady Jane and I’m having the time of my life!) has kept me from writing my blog, but this Let’s Talk Bookish topic is too good to be true: anti-heros. I’ll talk about my favorites, why I like them and then some books with anti-heros I wish to read soon! Let’s Talk Bookish is as always hosted by  Dani @ Literary Lion and Rukky @ Eternity Books!

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!

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!
