The Sunday Snuggle W25/2018 #TheSundaySnuggle

Hello readers!

This has been quite a week. I did SO MUCH reading (and not enough going to the gym…) and yet my TBR isn’t much shorter. I went a bit crazy on the buying and requesting and borrowing books.

On Kindle Unlimited I got:

The Wretched of Muirwood (Legends of Muirwood Book 1) I Am Watching You O Homem No Espelho (Portuguese Edition) by [Sophie, Vivianne]

Ebooks I got:

Dreadnought: Nemesis - Book One by [Daniels, April] The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers) by [Chambers, Becky] Binti by [Okorafor, Nnedi] 33142013

Books I got approved for on Netgalley:

Hello readers!

I am super super excited this week, I will be reducing my medication soon and my therapy is almost over. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you may remember that I had a mental breakdown last year and was still in the process of getting better. I’ve been back to work for a while now and feel almost 100% 🙂 my focus, memory & organizational skills aren’t quite the same yet, but I am sure they’ll be back soon.

I published my Privacy Policy this week! A little bit late, but I put quite some thought into it. Read it if you want to know what kind of information is stored from you when you visit my blog and what is done with it!

Ebooks I bought (I know!! I suck at book buying bans, but it is $0.99!):

Netgalley books I was approved for:

Audiobooks I got:

West Cork (Original Podcast) Titelbild Star Wars: Dark Force Rising: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 2 Titelbild 20170404

West Cork is rather a Podcast, so I don’t think it fits on my Audible book haul, but it is a very cool non-fiction podcast about this West Cork murder of a French woman (the case is still not solved). So I thought some of you might be interested! You can get it for free if you are an Audible member. Continue reading

The Sunday Snuggle W22/2018 #TheSundaySnuggle

Hello readers!

So, May in Germany is basically a month where you don’t really go to work a lot. This week we had Thursday and Friday off at my workplace, and of course I took the time to read a little! I have 23 books from Netgalley and 15 from Edelweiss… plus the books I bought myself, that is, which I have lost count of. So I definitely needed the extra time to attempt to catch up.

I am still on a book ban, which failed this week. But those books look amazing, so no regrets:

I read the Bernard Cornwell’s Winter King trilogy back when I was a teen and I loved it, but his books tend to be too similar to each other, so I haven’t quite read anything since. But this one is about William Shakespeare’s brother and sounds so cool and intriguing! Also, I love the title, Fools and Mortals.

Neverworld Wake is from the author of Night Film, so it was an auto-buy for me.

The Anne Frank book is the illustrated version, so I risked getting the German edition. I need to practice German anyway, plus it would be truer to the original.

I was disappointed they didn’t have Exile (from The Extinction Trials), but my bookstore is very limited in its English books, so it wasn’t a surprise… BUT THEN. The next day it was there!

I also received this book for reviewing, and I am so excited to read it:

38884656

Also, Riveted has a bunch of really cool books for free this month!! I’ll read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe! If there’s time I might read The Unexpected Everything… thoughts?

We Are the Ants

AND LASTLY, BUT NOT LEAST…

Victoria @ Wanderer’s Pen has a “So Your Character Is…” series which aims to break stereotypes, and she invited Thai @ Read Breathe Repeat and me to write about Brazil!! The post turned out awesome and I’d love it if you guys read it! There are also many other posts from her series posted which are such a great read!

So your character is from Brazil

Hello readers!

I’m in yet another book ban! (yes, I know they hardly ever work) I’m still planning on how long this one will be and whether I’ll include audiobooks as well. The ones I’ve gotten this time were with monthly credits, so it doesn’t count, but I go through them quite fast and read easily 4 per month… how will I survive??

But I really need to stop requesting books on Edelweiss and Netgalley. which is basically Mission Impossible. I definitely can’t read as fast as I acquire books. *sigh*

I got from Audible:

rich people problems kevin kwan to kill a kindgom alexandra christo

From Netgalley:

Hello readers!

This Sunday Snuggle has nothing at all to do with Kiss of Deception, but how nice is this Gif??? It’s been raining like crazy this week – great for reading, awful for getting out of bed early in the morning.

I got from Audible:

A princess in theory alyssa cole 35069562 28919058

From Netgalley:

33224144

Aaaaand I went mildly crazy at the bookstore, because I hardly ever find a good variety of English books in German bookstores, so this happened:

Travolta is such a model, isn’t he?? 😀 And that edition of Neverwhere is illustrated, so it’s extra cool!!

Hello readers!

I am back from vacation!! It was so much fun!! I read a little, rested and got four shades darker. But now I am back, refreshed and very glad to be back to blogging. I really missed it! 🙂 I talked a little about it on Friday’s post – Game of Thrones Walking Tour + Escape Room in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Books I bought during my trip:

Goddess of Spring and A Touch of Crimson were just 15 kuna (a little over 2 euros), so I just had to get them, although they were not on my TBR.

Books I’d gotten before the trip:

35297394 467457 china rich girlfriend kevin kwan

From Netgalley:

Hello readers!

The Sunday Struggle will go on a break for 3 weeks after this one! The reason is that I will be on vacation and travelling, so I’ve scheduled other posts to go up on the next Sundays!

Join my 500 WordPress Followers Giveaway if you haven’t and get the chance to win books and goodies!

Riveted Lit has Nowhere Girls available to read until the end of the Month, so I got that this month and hope to finish reading before travelling:

I also bought this Audiobook because I’m obsessed with this series now:

lair of dreams libba bray

Aaaaaaaaand I went bananas and rewarded myself for actually functioning like a person for an extended period of time with a bunch of books:

20180408_1504077239567669228890270.jpg

That’s The Italian Teacher, The City of Brass, Foolish Hearts and The Astonishing Color of After. These books are so beautiful I can’t even!! Also a cute owls-and-books themed notebook and a little owl bag.

I also created on Friday my first tag!!! Come read it and tag yourself if I haven’t tagged you!

tagNot many news this week, but I am quite proud of how I’ve generally been able to deal with my anxiety. Now that Spring here has arrived and it’s quite warm and sunny, my depression is quite gone. Unfortunately I think it’ll come back with the bad weather (if other factors don’t get to me first), but for now things are fine and that is what matters!
