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.

Let’s Talk Bookish: the popularity of YA

WOW, it’s been a long time since I’ve participated in a Let’s Talk Bookish, but this topic is too good to be true not to write a post and so I’ll take a few minutes to write a short post! And not to forget: the discussion is as always hosted by  Dani @Literary Lion and Rukky @Eternity Books!

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.

It’s taken me some time to get to the second book of Save Me, but now that I finished it, onto the third!

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!

Save Me – Review

I usually never read books in one or two days because I never have the time to do so – but yesterday, I went to the store at eleven am and spent the entire day reading. Today I read the last 100 pages after school and now I am done, desperate to buy the sequel tomorrow and shattered to 100000 pieces because this book was so incredibly great and there isn’t a better feeling in the world than after finishing an overwhelming book in a short time. Here are my thoughts on Mona Kasten’s novel Save Me!

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!

Chain of Gold – Spoiler Review

Chain of Gold left such an impression on me and impacted me more than I thought. I have the urge to talk more about the book, to go into detail and so here is my SPOILER review. Please, if you haven’t read the book and consider to do so, read my other review (click here).

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!
