The Viscount who loved me – Review

It’s been a while since I’ve written a review – mainly because I’ve been reading Harry Potter again and writing a third or fourth review on a book would be a little excessive, and secondly, because all I’ve been doing is reading court rulings for my seminar paper (which was incredibly fun, no hate here!). But after watching Bridgerton Season 2 and being dumbstruck at how I could even love the second season more than I did the first, I decided it was time to read the books. I just finished the second one (yes, I started with the second – I was invested in Anthony and Kate) and loved it. Here’s my review!

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!

First Impressions: The Spanish Love Deception

It’s been some time since I’ve read a book not connected to university and I have very strong feelings about the start of the story, so here is my first impression of The Spanish Love Deception by Elena Armas. I actually discovered this book on TikTok, which is so funny to me because I usually see TikToks of all the books I love, but this one was about great romance reads and since that is not my genre, I didn’t know a single book – anyways, here’s my first impression!

Let’s Talk Bookish – what makes a book a five star read?

It’s been a while since I’ve discussed something and since Let’s Talk Bookish has always been my favorite tag, I am beyond excited to write this post! The tag is hosted by Rukky @eternitybooks and  Dani @ Literary Lion. Today’s question What makes a book a five star read is not actually today’s topic, but I didn’t really know what to write for today’s question and so researched a few older ones and found this AWESOME question by M.T. Wilson @ The Last Book on the Left – so let’s get into it!

First Impressions: Chain of Iron

I guess first impressions are a bit wide-fetched since I am 200 pages in and the story is already super developed. But since the book is 600 pages long, I guess I’ll write one anyways because I have MILLIONS of thoughts…

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!

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!

Rereading Eclipse – Review

First off: senior year has hit me hard, there’s no excuse and so I have had zero time to write anything because I’d rather write few structured posts rather than many sloppy ones. Secondly, I’ve finished rereading Eclipse, the third Twilight book and it’s fair to say I have some thoughts. So here is my *sloppy* review with some unstructured very intuitively written-down sentences.

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.
