Let’s Talk Bookish: romance as a subplot!

We’re heading into December, slowly but surely, and me and my friends have already baked Christmas cookies and the Christmas playlist has been blasting for more than two weeks (featuring Michael Buble and Motown obviously!). The next two months are filled with exams, we had one today, one next Wednesday and Friday and then like that for the next several weeks – so fun. I hope I still find some time in between: especially for topics like these! Romance as a subplot: I’ll list my faves and least favorites and I guess just about everything that comes to my mind (very structured, right?). And not to forget: the discussion is as always hosted by  Dani @Literary Lion and Rukky @Eternity Books!

Top Ten Tuesday: books I loved but never reviewed!

It’s been quite some time – I’m back. I’ve spent the last week in Vienna, but unfortunately had to work on a presentation for school which had me reading and writing all day long (unfortunately about Presidential Doctrines and not YA fiction!) – and so I haven’t had the desired time continue reading Rivers of London or to create some content for my blog. Well, I managed to take some time off today and so here we are: listing all the books I read and loved, but never reviewed!

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: book fandoms!

I missed out on doing the tag yesterday and so it’s a day late, but I decided to write it anyways because today’s topic seems fun! It’s all about book fandoms – I’ll discuss what being part of a fandom means for me, explain the ones I’m part of and then discuss the upsides and downsides! As always, Let’s Talk Bookish is hosted by the amazing Rukky @Eternitybooks!

I’ve been working all day (during the Easter holiday…) and so I don’t have much time to do this super detailed. However, I am excited for today’s topic: books I bought because – and then I’ll choose a category and write the first three or something like that. So it should be fun!

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.

First Impressions: Chain of Gold

For some reason, I believed the corona break would be some kind of stress reliever, to stay at home and do like two hours of school every day, but no: our teachers have been actively sending us work and so I’ve had less time than I would have had in school?! Anyways, that’s the reason I haven’t been active the past week, but thank God, today I had some time to catch up on my reading, and so here are my first impressions of Cassandra Clare’s Chain of Gold!
