Reading update – I’m back!

Hi everyone, it’s been quite a while! I graduated high school which was quite a ride: so many good byes, parties and now I am finally able to relax and never think about school ever again (until I start Uni in October). Now I am on holiday with my family and I finally have the time to continue reading. I’m back and better than ever and so first things first: here’s a reading update!

Normal People – Review

After three weeks of complete silence, I have managed to show myself again. Online school started again, I only have my main courses and exams in school and that was such a stressful arrangement for me… So I didn’t have any time to read for three weeks up until Tuesday after finishing my last exam: and then I power-read Normal People by Sally Rooney in two days. Here are my thoughts!

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!

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: all about books!

I haven’t had the time to read all week and I’m super mad about it… Too many zoom conferences where teachers tell me nothing new, too many essays and math problems to solve and too much time spent on TikTok. So I’m happy to at least have the time to write my favorite tag – Let’s Talk Bookish, hosted by Rukky @Eternitybooks: today, I’ll be talking about how many books I own, how I organize them, where I buy my books. Basically, everything one needs to know about books (personalized version – my books)!

Shadowhunters Quotes that go way too deep – Listed!

I am currently reading Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare and once more, I realized how breathtakingly deep Cassandra Clare’s books go and how incredibly much she’s able to pin feelings down and just state true and hurtful facts we all have to accept. So here are my favorite quotes from The Infernal Devices, The Mortal Instruments, The Dark Artifices and now The Last Hours.

Let’s Talk Bookish: what are your thoughts regarding reading challenges?

It’s Friday people. And normally that would make me really happy but now all it means is that my break is slowly coming to an end and that school starts Monday morning (like every other week haha). However, I still had a wonderful day today: studied some maths with a friend, then went to eat some Belgian waffles (which are my favorite ever) and now I’m about to head to the cinema with my mum to watch The Gentlemen (will review!). But now onto the bookish part: today I’ll be discussion reading challenges and Let’s Talk Bookish is as always hosted by Rukky @Eternitybooks!
