Hey there my lovelies!
Welcome back to another round of my montly blog meme „SASSY Saturday“!
How does it work? Well, that’s easy! 😉
All you have to do is to follow those three golden rules:
„SASSY Saturday“ is planned to be a monthly meme but if you want to do it more often feel free to go for it! This meme was created to get to know other bloggers, their new obsessions and to reflect on your own last month! Above all it was created to have fun though! 😉 If you want you can also use the banner I created! This said let’s head to the good part:
S – Series you loved this month
The Tale of Nokdu: Okay, it’s official: Hwarang got me hooked on k-dramas! Fictional historical k-dramas I may add! Gosh, I loved this story so much! It’s about Nok-du who was raised by his father not knowing who he is and when his family gets attacked he finally wants to get some answers and follows the assassin to a widow village. But only widows are allowed in there so he dresses up as one in order to find out who wants to kill him and why. And this is only the beginning, my friends! AHHH! This series gave me all the feels! At first I had to laugh, then I was shocked and by the end of this series I was constantly in tears! This was amazing!!! I’m still blown away! AHHH the feels! ❤
A – Author you discovered
Sylvain Neuvel – Sleeping Giants
This book was sold to me as some sort of „Illuminae“ and even though it’s a whole lot different than „Illuminae“ the interview style of the story is definitely similar. Still, this was not what I expected it to be, but it was at least as intriguing as the „Illuminae Files“! In the end I read this pretty fast and I think „Sleeping Giants“ actually managed to get me back into sci-fi! And the best thing?! There are still two more books left! 😀
S – Song you couldn’t get enough of
Isak Danielson – Power
There’s something about this song that got me! Maybe it’s because the style kind of reminds me of Hozier? I dunno! What I DO know is that the lyrics are great and that the combination of the music and the atmosphere fit perfectly to the songtext! ❤ Also Isak’s voice is great!
S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard
My sudden obsession with k-dramas! *lol* Like seriously. I started with „Hwarang“, continued with „Nokdu“ and now I’m so deep into the k-drama world I can’t even get out of it anymore. And to be completely honest I don’t want to. ;-P I’m fine in my k-drama rabbit hole and will make myself comfortable in there.
Also: At the end of June I reached a 100 subscribers on my BookTube channel and actually got my own URL now. Which is amazing! So thank you to everyone who’s also following me over there! ❤ You guys are amazing and I can’t thank you enough for all the support and kind words I got over the years! Without your constant encouragement I certainly would have never even thought about starting my own channel! ❤ This said: If you ever wanted to ask me something you can do it now! I’m celebrating my 100 subscribers with a Q&A and will answer your questions in a video! So don’t hesitate to drop me a comment and fire away. 😉
Y – Your fave blog post of another blogger
I just loved that blog post and was so happy to discover new f/f romances. I still think there aren’t enough of those out there in the world and I sometimes have the feeling that they are drowned out by all the great m/m releases. We definitely need more amazing f/f couples in our lives and Elli’s blog post was amazing! ❤
Since June was pride month I decided to feature two of my fave blog posts this month and this one also made it on my list! I’ve been following „The Quiet Pond“ (what an amazing blog name!!! <3) for quite a while now and they always have amazing content and well-thought-out blog posts. During pride month they even went for a Pride Month Edition in which they introduced lots of books with different LGBTQ+ reps and I lived and breathed for it! If you don’t know them already you should so click that link and discover their blog!!!
What do you think about „SASSY Saturday“? Would you like to join the fun? Did you ever hear of „Sleeping Giants“? Which kind of series are you obsessed with at the moment? Any k-drama fans out there? *lol* Did you celebrate pride month as well and if yes how?!
Talk to me and let me know! 😉
