New Releases: February 2018

So here’s something I really really love: the smell of new books. And here’s something I do on a semi-daily basis: dream about all the books I would like to own, but don’t quite yet. So naturally, at some point, I was going to have to combine them, right? And that’s what this is! Some of my […]

Weekly Lists #116: Booktube made me do it

So we all have those moments, right? Where you’re just happily watching some Youtube. Nothing special, really. And then, suddenly. It happens. Someone mentions a book. A title, a blurb, a thing they loved about it. And although you’re quietly grumbling, you’re already getting out your phone and opening the Goodreads app. Because you just […]

My 2017 Christmas-TBR

The first week of Blog-mas has boiled down to absolute madness. Counting teaching, tutoring, preparing exams (which I finally got to hand in this past Friday – FREEDOM!), preparing for classes and correcting assignments, I was easily working upwards of 16 hours per day.

Let the real deal explain that real quick: For those who prefer the abbreviated version: […]

My 2017 summer TBR

As promised last week: my summer TBR! From fluffy books to classics, taking along some thought-inducing reading along the way: these are the books I’m hoping to read this summer. No doubt many will be added and even more will be dropped, but as for now? These are the books on my summer TBR. This […]

Books for the summer

I know everybody and their dog is doing one of these right now. But I love reading, and summer is usually one of the prime times for me to get a lot of reading done. Naturally, I have a Summer TBR, but that’s for next week. This week, let’s just get started with something maybe even more […]
