Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | I Put This Off For Way Too Long!

Illuminae was an epic read. I was hooked from start to finish and I really recommend it to everyone! Whether you like sci-fi or not, it's a must-read.

There’s no other book like Illuminae. I mean that in many different ways because I don’t think there’s any book I put off reading for so long. At one point, it was on my TBR. I’ve held multiple editions in my hands at multiple bookshops, I removed it from my TBR… Then my best friend picked it up and loved it so that personal recommendation must’ve done it for me! I picked it up at my favourite bookshop and it. blew. my. mind. Holy plot twists, Batman! I’m not really into sci-fi, but this was such a great book!

My Goodreads Reading Challenge – Will I Reach My Goal?!

This year, I wanted to read 75 books. I've read quite a lot so far, but will I reach my goal? Here's a look at my progress!

At the beginning of this year, I set my Goodreads Reading Challenge to 75 books. The number is pretty much right in the middle of my two previous challenges, and it felt right. Then I slipped from one reading slump into the other and even my summer holiday wasn’t able to help me catch up. Since I’m about to go back to college, and my reading time will be much less, I’ve decided to have a good look at my reading; Will I be able to reach my goal?

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo | Most Spectaculair Heist Ever!?

A few months ago, I hadn’t read a single Leigh Bardugo book. Now I’ve finished all of them. How crazy is that?! I’m in love with the world of the Grisha. This review will probably be a little influenced by Crooked Kingdom, as I continued with that one straight away before I even took the time to finish writing this review. My opinion on both books are the same, though; they’re absolutely incredible. As always, my review is spoiler free. I hope you’ll enjoy it!

THE QUEER EYE BOOK TAG!

I thought about doing a book tag and found it didn’t exist yet. CAN YOU BELIEVE? Because I certainly can’t. You might’ve noticed my slight “obsession” with Queer Eye on Netflix. In case you have no clue what I’m talking about: Queer Eye is a make-over reality show in which five gay guys – the Fab Five – makeover (usually) straight men. Each of these guys have a different area of expertise: food, fashion. grooming, design and culture. I definitely recommend you check it out because it’s absolutely incredible. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen it yet, this tag is made to be fun for everyone! Read more

The Bookish Bulletin: July ’18 | SURPRISE, I’M BACK!-ish?

Hi y’all! After my latest posts, I went a bit quiet again. My days consisted of work, re-watching Queer Eye and waiting for my online orders to arrive in the mail… Yay? One package that wasn’t actually an online order – more like a repair – arrived today and it was my monitor! I could’ve blogged perfectly fine on my MacBook alone (and I actually did!) but just having this thing on my desk and having cleaned up my room has helped me so much to get back into being productive. I WANT to sit at my desk and working. Plus, the heat has toned it down a liiiittle bit, which makes me feel a lot better, to say the least. Anyway, here’s my wrap up, TBR, personal update & more!

If You’d Like to Know Where I’ve Been…

Today’s post was a difficult one to write. I have so many things on my mind that I want to share with you guys but I just don’t know how. I don’t want this to be a rambly complaint kind of post! You’ve probably noticed my absence (but I won’t blame you if you didn’t) and I just want to try and explain why I’ve been gone for so long. I don’t think this will be a “fun” post, but I need to get this off my chest. Read more
