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!

2020 Reading Wrap-Up

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! I hope you all had the chance to celebrate with your loved ones, with or without lockdown. I spent my evening at a friend’s house and so that was great, but we went to bed waaaay to late and so all I’m doing today is watching How I Met Your Mother for the hundredth time and writing this post. Anyways: here’s my bookish year, favorites, disappointments, and everything else that happened on this blog!

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!

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!

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.

Save You – Review

It’s been some time, I haven’t had any time to blog because I’m currently in Italy hiking with my family. This vacation, however, finally led to me finishing two books, so no hard feelings here. 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!
