30 Books in 30 Days – November 2018

And another throwback to two years ago: Since this one worked rather well for me in May, I decided to challenge myself once again to read in 30 books in 30 days. Let’s call it the the-end-of-2018-is-near-I-need-to-get-more-reading-done reading frenzy. At the beginning of November, there were once again way too many books on my currently reading pile (CRP) and on my you-should-have-read-most-of-these-books-ages-ago reading list. Naturally, I won’t manage to read all of those but I’d like to make at least a dent. It would be nice if I managed to start 2019 with a clean slate – a CRP of 1-2 books – but let’s be realistic …

30 Books in 30 Days – May 2018

Throwback to two years ago – Sana came up with a really fun idea: starting 30 books in 30 days. With a currently reading pile of 20 books in the beginning of May, participating in this would be a really stupid move on my part, right? Well, who cares?! I didn’t want to let this silly game pass me, so I decided to tweak it a little: reading in 30 books in 30 days? That I could do, being both able to start some new ones and trying to finish ones that have been on my CRP for years. So this is how it went …

Reading List May 2020

Fun fact: I haven’t posted a monthly TBR list since 2014. Why? Well, I never stick to them anyway. So why am I doing this now? I honestly don’t know, but I felt like doing it anyway. Maybe it will help to keep me on track this time around. Or not. But at least I’ll know what I meant to read that Corona-struck May in 2020 if I ever look back … and that sounds darker than I intended it to be …

SuBsalabim November 2017

November has a classic garden, a lost moon princess, a strategist fighting battles with her wit, a dead girl, and a lighthouse in store for me …

SuBsalabim October 2017

October, November, and December – that’s my favourite quarter of the year, so I made a special list of autumnal and wintry titles for my friends to choose from. The resulting October reads: lost children, time travellers, an Irish princess, a girl that accompanied my teens, and Norse Gods …

SuBsalabim September 2017

Since I’m spending my holidays at my parents’ aka my private library, my friends had a considerable amount of books to choose from. The result is an eclectic mix of reads …

SuBsalabim August 2017

The August SuBsalabim TBR is a little boring background storywise with four books purchased rather recently. Alas, with four firsts, this might get me into some series – or will make me abandon them. Who knows at this point …
