Top Ten Tuesday #37: Irish Is Awesome #2

It’s All About Audio freebie time and since I had this post in the pipeline for so long, I decided this would be a perfect opportunity to publish it! Maybe you remember the last post, which I published shortly after finishing my Bachelor thesis. The covers of Avicii and Macklemore were the only thing that kept me sane during that horrific week of writing. How fitting that I just finished my Master degree. This time, my writing routine was very different. Although I did finish only hours before handing it in, I wasn’t under that much pressure because I managed to distribute the work fairly over a couple of weeks. Still, these ten covers below are wonderful and really make me want to work on my Gaeilge skills. Coláiste Lurgan makes those as part of their summer school project to add zest to Gaeilge for teens. They are absolutely fantastic …

End of Year Survey 2015

Yeah, this is beyond silly. I just have a talent for semi-preparing these and then never finish them in time. But I had this one almost done so I just didn’t want to delete it all. And it’s kind of nice reminiscing last years books …

Top Ten Tuesday #36: All-Time Favourite Horse Novels

You weren’t seriously expecting me to choose any other genre, were you? To be honest, I first and foremost chose horse novels because I’ve read hundreds of them and feel more or less competent to point out my all-time favourites. For example, I still haven’t read many high fantasy novels that are considered classics or are widely celebrated, which means I’d probably miss the very best that might become all-time favourites in the near-future – if that makes any sense. In no particular order …

Top Ten Tuesday #35: Books I Abandoned … And Came Back To

Sometimes, I abandon books right in the middle. I just lose interest. My mood changes. I’m indecisive what I actually want to read. I’m too annoyed or appalled to continue. I want to read a new release I’ve been waiting for. Or I don’t have any reason whatsoever …

Top Ten Tuesday #34: 2015 Releases I Meant to Get to But Didn’t

As always, I’ve been hoarding books but didn’t really get around to reading most of the books I bought. Here are the 2015 releases I actually really wanted to read, but couldn’t find the time to do so …

Top Ten Tuesday #33: Series I Resolve to Finish in 2016

Series – my personal doom. My problem is that I love to reread the previous books each time a new one comes out. You can imagine that this takes up an insane amount of time. Plus, I sometimes lose interest in continuing right when I’m done with rereading and could actually start the new book. Or instead of continuing with the next book, I start reading other stuff and don’t get back to it. Kind of tricky and it most certainly doesn’t help with finishing series. I’m working on changing something about it, so here are the series I really want to finish this year. I do already own all the books I need to read, so there’s really no excuse …

Top Ten Tuesday #32: Books on My Fall TBR List

I’m currently getting back into making monthly TBRs. It’s fun to pick a couple of books I’m really in the mood for and see how far I get over the course of the month. They’re not set in stone, so I won’t revive the blog posts, though. I don’t want to put pressure on myself again since it didn’t end well the last time. And yet, it’s fun to plan ahead. So here are ten books I currently feel like reading over the next couple of months. This list definitely has the feeling of my favourite season, best read on colourful, crisp, and sunny days, and in cold, foggy, and rainy nights – or any combination of these adjectives, for all it matters …
