Hello readers!

I actually forgot to put the books from the Readathon in the last Sunday Snuggle, but I’m adding them here instead. This week was a bit tiring, as I try to make my sleep pattern more regular, which involves a lot of not sleeping enough.

In case you missed it, I posted my experience of one year of reading romance novels! If you’ve followed me for a while, you know that I don’t read romances a lot, but last year I took on the challenge of reading more of the genre and… well, find out what I thought of the experience 🙂

1 Year of Romance Books (Update on my 2018 Valentine’s Day Post)

Rewarding myself for finally having my TBR below 190 books, I bought:

Now it’s back to more than 190 books, because I added the rest of the Accursed Kings collection after reading the first one, The Iron King. *sigh* But we’re moving forward, so that’s good!

Gabrielle Mathieu was kind enough to send me the rest of the Falcon Trilogy, and I’m so excited to get to them!

After that, I actually bought a couple more books!

The Sunday Snuggle Week 6 2019

Hello readers!

This was a very heavy-reading week – I normally start counting from the moment a Sunday Snuggle gets post what I count for the next one – and as that happens Sunday early evening, I normally get another few hundred pages in. It’s also normally when I start new books – in this case I started and finished Once Ghosted, Twice Shy, and also got Exit West done.

From Audible, I got:

The Sunday Snuggle Week 4 2019

Hello readers!

Welcome to the first Sunday Snuggle from 2019! Gee, it surely took me a while to write one. I think two months?? I missed writing those. But end of the year and beginning of the year are always a mess, and I managed to post a lot of other things I wanted to (especially reviews!) and now we’re back on the usual schedule of 3 posts per week Tuesday, Friday and Sunday. It was surely fun to have posts coming out almost everyday for over a month! Lots of new content on the blog.

I reached 700 followers on WordPress in the meantime and the 1000-follower mark on Twitter! That, plus a few email followers and people from Goodreads, make for such an overwhelming amount of love from you guys, thank you so much! ❤

This week I got:

From Audible:

the woman in the window aj finn

Via Edelweiss, I got:

a prince on paper alyssa cole

From Netgalley, I got:

Hello readers!

I have a giveaway going on in Twitter! Here is the link if you wanna join, and it goes on until December 21, when I announce the 2 winners. I haven’t decided on the prize yet, but it will probably be a book from Book Depository.

I’m trying to read as many books published 2018 as possible, and publish the reviews before the year ends. I’m not participating on Blogmas, but I like the idea of posting a lot of reviews of books from this year still this year. There’s still many to go, but I know my TBR will be much longer this year once books get published next year.

This was accidentally helped by the fact that I got a bit ill this week and thus made shorter hours at work, and also went only once to the gym. Suddenly, I had lots more free time.

From Netgalley I received:

Hello readers!

This week was a bit unproductive reading-wise. Not quite a slump, but I’m not excited about one of the books I’m reading so I’ve been postponing a lot and didn’t get much reading done. Also a got a bit sick and was mostly sleeping after work instead of reading… but well! Happens. How are you guys doing?

I received Ms. Victorious‘ debut book, which is called Guardian of the Auras and described by her as a mix of Furyborn and Game of Thrones, and it honestly sounds so wonderful!

Hello readers!

Welcome to December!! My favorite month of the year, even after I moved to Germany and now Decembers are goddamn COLD. There’s Christmas, and my birthday, and vacation, and Silvester, and then my sister’s birthday just two days after the month is over. Also, in just a few weeks my favorite posts to read come around: best books of the year, new releases of 2019 people are looking forward to… always really nice posts to read. Can you tell I’m excited?

On Audible, I got:

My Sister, the Serial Killer oyinkan braithwaite

Hello readers!

This was a different week in the blog, as I’ve posted a six-part GIF series for bookish posts instead of my usual 1 review and 1 list/recommendations/discussion post. I wasn’t sure if this series would be interesting for you guys, but I personally always use GIFs on my posts so I thought it would be nice to have a place to go to for specifically bookish GIFs, instead of searching for them for every time I write something new. I got only a few responses on those and they are slightly less popular than my other posts, but I don’t mind it. I think it’s a nice series.

Anyway! This was a unique week! I acquired NO books at all. Wow, this is a first since… I have no idea?

Reading-wise it was such an interesting week – this week’s reading theme seems to be “female relationships”, with Based on a True Story, Spinning Silver and now Paper Wasp. Even WWRWW can be seen as a bit of that too. Normally reading about a topic or a certain genre makes me want to read something entirely different afterwards, but this week I was all about books with a similar theme, although they are each different from one another (one fantasy, one nonfiction, one contemporary and one mystery). Curious, huh! What are very specific plots that you like to read?

Hello readers!

I had a week-long vacation and spend a few days in Berlin. I went to English bookstores and basically threw a party there, as you will see from the list of books I bought… and I have no regrets! I knew I was going to get a lot of new books, so I put extra effort on my OWNtober challenge. I was very much in a poetry mood, it seems.

From Edelweiss:

pride prejudice and other flavors sonali dev

I’m so excited for this one! I have only liked one Pride and Prejudice retelling from those I’ve read, but I have high hopes for this one.

From Netgalley:

the girl who smiled beads clemantine wamariya the only woman in the room marie benedict the outlaw and the upstart king the paper wasp lauren acampora

Books I bought:

women who run with wolves clarissa pinkola estes selected poems of emily dickinson worlds of you beau taplin the trial franz kafka the magic mountain thomas mann all about love bell hooks ariel sylvia plath shadow of the wind carlos ruiz zafron the silence of the girls pat barker bitter orange claire fuller rosewater tade thompson
