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!

Let’s Talk Bookish: serious books!

Another week is over and I have not been able to read ONE page. One of my best friends was again staying over because her house is too far from school and I loved our time together, but my reading life suffered – but we had extreme quality time, so no regrets! Anyways, I’m back and will try to read more next week. Today I’ll be discussing serious books: why I read them, my very real struggles, some favorites and some TBR’s!

Let’s Talk Bookish: what makes a good villain?

I’m finally back: the first week of school was a killer and I didn’t have time to read ONE page, or even check up on my blog. So, I’m back, but a day late. Anyways: today I’ll be discussing a good villain – what makes a good villain and personal favorites! Let’s Talk Bookish is as always hosted by Rukky @Eternitybooks!

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!

The Harry Potter Film Binge Quiz + tag along!

I recently did the Rather Difficult Harry Potter Quiz and I really enjoyed doing it as well as writing the post, so here’s another one! You can tag along here, I’ll always post the question and then you can scroll down a little to get the answer, or do the complete quiz here. Let’s go and see if watching the movies for at least 20 times each payed off!
