Wrap-Up & Newbies June 2015

June was a really mixed reading month. The first week was really hot so I fled my room and spend some wonderful reading hours at the Botanic Gardens. Sunshine, a soft wind, the chirping of birds and visits from curious squirrels – that’s what I consider peaceful quality reading time. For the rest of the month, however, I moved more or less into the library researching for my group presentation …

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 …

How I Discover New Music #1: Other Lives

Until that fateful day, 18 October 2014, I had never heard of Other Lives, an indie rock band from Oklahoma. That day, I opened Youtube and there it was in my subscription feed: Outlander|| Take Us Alive by Shainira. I had been pondering either starting to watch the show or to read the first book, which was already on my shelf. When it comes to series, I don’t really care about spoilers – if I choose to be spoiled and go actively looking for them, mind you! I often check out a couple of fan videos to get a feeling for a series when I’m not sure about commiting myself, so this one was no exception. What I didn’t anticipate was falling so so so hard for the song …

Top Ten Tuesday #31: Best Books I’ve Read So Far In 2015

As a matter of fact, I’ve got exactly 10 titles on my first read favs 2015 shelf. I feel like I’m getting more and more nitpicky each year. On the other hand, I haven’t read a single one star book this year, so there’s that. Since there are so many series popping up multiple times, I also included some honorable mentions …

Newbies May 2015

Umm … I think this got kind of out of hand. Well, compared to last year’s hauls, this is barely average, but I was doing so well. And then there came May, my good intentions vanished into thin air and I got more books than in the previous two months combined. In my defense … well, what can I say. It’s just the way I am – AND I had a lot of preorders AND I had to get the last PennyGirl books because the publisher was selling out AND I had a friend over who I just had to introduce to my favourite book shop in Munich …

Wrap-Up May 2015

May was such an awesome reading month! Although I had a couple of projects for uni, they didn’t take up as much of my time as I feared. Most of my free time, I spent with my head in a book. Not only did I read a lot, I also read a lot of awesome books …
