Finishing School

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 …

End of Year Survey 2018

Yep, this one is super late even for these! However, since I didn’t have my blog, I didn’t feel like finishing and/or publishing it yet since no one besides me would be able to read it. It was kind of nice going through this, remembering the books I read not so long ago that feels like a different life time. So here are the tops and bottoms of 2018 …

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 …

Wrap-Up & Newbies April 2015

Yeah, I know, I’m super late with this. Thing is: I recovered from my reading slump, which means I spend every spare minute reading. This means that the blog goes short of my attention. I don’t know why, but it’s always either reading or blogging. Nevertheless, here are the couple of books I managed to read in April …
