The books I read during the holidays

The holidays feel like a lifetime ago, so much happened: I went back to Munich, uni started again and I MOVED INTO MY OWN APPARTMENT – what?!

January was super intense, happy because I love living alone and I’m not lonely (my fear) and also sad because the holidays were such a magical time with my family. I spent two weeks just NOT DOING ANY WORK, reading, watching movies, going on walks and spending quality time with my family. I reread (nostalgic, you know) a few books and thought I’d share them if anyone is in need of awesome books!

WWW Wednesday

It feels so good to get back into the game and restart all the weekly book tags and WWW Wednesday has always been one of my faves. I am currently in Vienna visiting my family, sitting on the terrace and looking at the garden and I am planning to stay right here and read a LOT OF BOOKS. I hope that works – but for now, let’s look at my current reading situation!

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!

A Court of Thorns and Roses – Review

Wow – I’m back after five months and it feels awesome! If you were wondering, I took an extreme break because of my high school finals, but now they’re over, I’m on the train to take a mini vacation with my best friend and is there a better way than to use this opportunity to start writing again? Anyways, I have not read much, but I did finish Sarah J Maas’ amazing book A Court of Thorns and Roses, so here’s a review!

First Impressions: Crescent City

I’M BACK EVERYONE – sorry for the ghost. I had exam season during the whole month of December and so I made the tough call to shut down writing and focus on my grades! Thank God, that is done now and I can focus on some well-deserved holidays, reading and YOU GUYS! And so, for the first time in a month, I had the time to pick up a book and I chose Sarah J Maas’ Crescent City and I couldn’t have picked a better Christmas read – here are my first impressions!

Rereading Twilight – Review

I actually did it – I reread the first Twilight novel by Stephanie Meyer. But it wasn’t totally out of the blue: her new book, Midnight Sun, has been all over the news lately. I’ve read so many negative reviews claiming it to be super annoying, only describing Edward’s hunger and his desperate tries to keep his blood lust under control. Briefly said: I had no other book to read, saw Twilight on my shelf and made the desperate move to take it with me – and I wasn’t able to put it down, despite some very negative thoughts. Here is my wildly confusing, irrational and controversial review of rereading a series I always put in the “I read it when I was 12 and was the biggest fan but now it’s rubbish and I hate it” box.

First Impressions: Rivers of London

Anyone whose been reading my blog for a while knows that I am an absolute freak when it comes to London. Favorite place on earth. And then you might wonder why it’s only after such a long time that I pick up this book, Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch even though it explores London in such depth. Well, I’ve only this year brought it over myself to move out of my YA safe space and to explore some more genres, like fantasy crime. Here are my first impressions!

Rereading My Lady Jane – Review

Well, I’ve reread My Lady Jane – one of my absolute favorite books in the world! The reason I reread it at this point of time was in preparation (and honor mostly) for My Calamity Jane, which was just released. So, here are my thoughts the second time around and things might or might not have changed! Additionally: this will not be a “normal and formal” review, but more of a favorite/new aspects list!
