I Got Tagged #3: My Favourite Literary Couples

Actually, I didn’t get tagged but I saw it on numerous blogs and decided to jump on the bandwagon. You’re supposed to name at least five of your favourite literary couples. I had a list with over twenty but decided to cut back because it really isn’t that easy to find great quotes in novels you haven’t read in the last couple of years. In some cases, I remembered what I wanted and where I could find it, in others I got lucky and just stumbled upon a great quote. So here are my twelve favourite literary couples in no particular order – well, except for the first one because Rhaegar and Lyanna are my absolute OTP …

Wrap-Up + Newbies February 2014

The first seventeen days of February were completely spent on my bachelor thesis. You have no idea how great I felt when I handed it in on the 17th. I hadn’t picked up a real novel in a little over a month because I was too afraid I would procrastinate by reading. However, I wasn’t able to read as much in the following days since I had a couple of other things going on. I visited my friends to help them repaint their flat before moving out, had to sew my sister a Little Red Ridinghood cape for carnival, and get a lot of things sorted out …

Newbies January 2014

Except for Die Liebe deines Lebens, which was a belated Christmas present, and the three W.i.t.c.h. paperbacks, I got all of the books for my birthday. I’m so glad that my parents want me to write wishlists and then actually get me what’s on them. After all, it’s still a surprise what I get since my lists tend to be awfully long and they just pick a couple of books …

R015-Nearly Gone

Review: Nearly Gone

I really, truly tried to like this novel but unfortunately this is one of those that have a great premise but fall utterly short of my expectations. A sciencey murder mystery with a paranormal element? Well, that totally could have been awesome! However, it just didn’t work out for me; in other words, the pieces of the puzzle that should have added up to an awesome story didn’t link . . .

My Shelves: 2004 vs. 2014 [Part 2/2] – Library Tour / Book Census Results

I’m sure you remember how my shelf looked like 10 years ago. If not, you can refresh your memory here. Well, 10 years is quite a long time and as you will see, I’ve been buzy collecting books. First off, I feel obliged to mention that I collect horse novels. It’s my quirk and I really don’t care if you think I’m completely mental. I do enjoy friendly teasing (many thanks to my Twitter people for some of the most hilarious tweets ever), just don’t be rude.

The reading lists are finally back! Naturally, I failed to fulfil my reading resolutions in January and February but at least I had a good excuse. Now let’s see how this month will turn out …
