Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Fall 2021 To-read List

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: : Books on My Fall 2021 To-read List

1.) „Felix Ever After“ by Kacen Callender

48849624. sy475

I put „Felix Ever After“ on my September TBR and I intend to start it next week. I’ve been looking forward to read this for ages and I’m so glad my library had it in its shelves! It’s one of the few books I know about that actually have a transgender MC so I’m very excited to read Felix’s story. Also I’m absolutley in love with the cover! It’s so lively and realistically unapologetic!

2.) „Ninth House“ by Leigh Bardugo

52092876. sx318 sy475

To be honest I started this yesterday and I’m soo ready to read „Ninth House“! I’ve never read dark academia before and I heard that a lot of people would place this book in the genre. So far I’ve loved every book I read from Leigh so I’m pretty certain I’ll enjoy this one as well. It might be darker than the others but I’m definitely ready to explore this darker side of Leigh’s writing! 😉

3.) „Railhead“ by Philip Reeve

23532981

The Yoongi to my V spoke so much about this series that I couldn’t help but get curious about it. So when I recently discovered that my library actually has „Railhead“ I just couldn’t resist to borrow it. *lol* I’m sure Sabrina waited for me to read this ever since I spoke about it in my last library haul video on my BookTube channel! So yep, it’s autumn and I’m finally going to tackle this. XD

4.) „Rebel“ by Marie Lu

42121526

So I recently finished to read the Legend trilogy! And after THAT kind of ending I knew I couldn’t let it stand like that! I mean ARGHAADKLFASFJSAKDJS! Marie Lu always kills me with her endings and I just needed more after the finale of „Champion“. Thankfully I stumbled upon this in my library and I have every intention to read it and to hopefully get an ending I can live with. *lol*

5.) „The Gravity of Us“ by Phil Stamper

44281034

„The Gravity of Us“ has been on my radar for quite a while and the idea of a LGBTQ+ book that also tackles the topic of spacetravel is just too intriguing to let it go unnoticed! XD I already love the concept of this and I’m very curious how this is going to play out. Guess I’ll find out this autumn! *lol*

6.) „My Dark Vanessa“ by Kate Elizabeth Russell

55820574. sy475

Now here’s a book that doesn’t only have an intriguing topic but also a very serious one and I’m sure to read this will be tough. Still, I really want to know what’s all the fuss about. A lot of people said that it wasn’t their cup of tea and others said that „My Dark Vanessa“ was hard to read but that the way the story was told is brilliant. So yeah, the controversial opinions about it made me curious which caused this to land on my TBR. You know I can’t resist controversial books. *lol*

7.) „The Guest List“ by Lucy Foley

51933429

I really don’t know much about this book except of that it plays on an island and that it’s about a wedding. Oh yes, and that it is a mystery thriller. XD So I guess it’s fair to say that I know next to nothing about „The Guest List“. It was a goodreads choice winner of 2020 though and lots of people spoke about it back then. For me that’s enough reason to give it a try as a Halloween read! 😉

8.) „Mexican Gothic“ by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

53152636. sy475

And here comes my second Halloween read for this year. This entire book gives me a haunted house and cursed family vibe and I don’t know if you already know this about me, but I LOVE vibes like that! *lol* I’m the first one to read a book about a house with millions of hidden doors and even more hidden secrets about its owners. XD So yep, this is going to be fun. Hopefully.

9.) „Heartstopper: Volume Three“ by Alice Oseman

43449920. sy475

After all the darkness (or gloom and doom if you want to call it like that *lol*) I need something light and nothing is better than Alice Oseman’s „Heartstopper“! My library recently got volume three and of course I had to borrow it. I’m really looking forward to be reunited with Nick and Charlie! Because those two boys are precious!!! ❤ (Plus: The entire cast of „Heartstopper“ is amazing!!)

10.) „Love, Creekwood“ by Becky Albertalli

53239539. sy475

I wanted to read this for what feels like a lifetime and this autumn I finally decided to go for it! I need more of Simon and Blue and I’m really curious what happened after the two former books in the Simonverse! I guess this will be some sort of epilogue that will hopefully give me all the fluffy feels and will make me very happy. No high expectations and no pressure. Really, Becky! *lol*

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which books are on your fall TBR and do we have some in common? Do you have special books you want to read for Halloween and if yes, are they very creepy? As you all know I’m a scaredy fox and I’m always looking for nice horror books that aren’t too heavy. Do you have any suggestions for me?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wish I Could Read Again for the First Time

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Books I Wish I Could Read Again for the First Time (Oh where to start?! *lol*)

1.) „Harry Potter“ series by J.K. Rowling

22844191. sy475

Ahh to be 11 years old and to discover Harry Potter all over again. It would be so amazing to read this series for the very first time. Especially because now I could read all seven books without having to wait for the next instalment. I swear the wait for the next book was always so excruciating. Alone for that I envy everyone who is just discovering the series and reading it for the very first time. *lol*

2.) „The Raven Cycle“ Series by Maggie Stiefvater

17347389 I just love, love, love, love and once again love this series!!! It has my heart and my soul and I will never get tired of speaking about „The Raven Cycle“. I just love all the four raven boys and Blue to bits and pieces! So yes, to discover this series all over again would be so amazing! To feel all the feels for the very first time. Ahh! I can’t! XD I’d so love to experience it all over again. ❤

3.) „All for the Game“ Series by Nora Sakavic

17259690 I just finished the second book „The Raven King“ and I’m already at the point where I say that I would like to read it for the very first time. I guess that says enough about how great this series is and also about how addicted I got to it. *lol* I can’t believe I’m so invested in the Foxes but ARGH!!! Andrew Minyard and Neil Josten are my precious babies and I just want to hug them and wrap them into a cozy and warm blanket! I don’t know what it is about this series but I AM HOOKED!

4.) „Venery“ Series by Suanne Laqueur

36285077. sx318 When I stumbled upon Suanne’s series I never thought I would get so attached to it. Like OMG! This series totally blew me away and Javier Landes, Alex Penda and Steffen Finch will always have a special place in my heart! Needless to say I would love to read this series all over again. Suanne’s writing style is so damn amazing! If you don’t know her books already: Do yourself a favour and read this series for the very first time! And don’t forget to tell me, because I want to relive it vicariously through you. ;-P

5.) Basically all of Rick Riordan’s books I already read! *lol*

28187 I only discovered Uncle Ricks books about 2 years or so ago, but by now I read almost all of them and I enjoyed them immensely! So believe me when I say that I would love to read every single one of them for the very first time. Percy, Nico, Annabeth, Hazel, Leo and basically everyone in this series is so precious! ❤

6.) „The Song of Achilles“ by Madeline Miller

13516154 Okay, I probably would die all over again if I would read this for the very first time but quite honestly: It would be so worth it! I would gladly cry my eyes out if I could experience this for the very first time again. XD Masochistic much? Yes, but this book is a masterpiece and if you haven’t read it yet: What are you waiting for?! Patroclus and Achilles! T_T I’m crying once again. So beautiful and bittersweet!

7.) „The Name of the Wind“ by Patrick Rothfuss

186074 And here comes another masterpiece that I loved more than I thought I would. Kvothe is basically my kryptonite. A broken boy that is intelligent, a musician and to top it all off even a redhead! *lol* It’s like Patrick Rothfuss just wanted to see how hard I could fall for a fictional character. Well, Patrick you succeeded, I’d love to fall in love with Kvothe and his story all over again. XD

8.) „Carry On“ by Rainbow Rowell

32768522 Simon and Baz!! Baz and Simon!!! Oh gods, to see them fall in love for the very first time! I had so much fun reading this and „Carry On“ is still a book I love to get back to every once in a while. I already said it and I’ll say it once again: I fall asleep cuddling this book! *lol* It’s such a comfort read and to think of those two always makes me happy! =)) They are definitely one of my favourite m/m OTPs and I’ll probably recommend this book until the day I die. 😉

9.) „Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda“ by Becky Abertalli

19547856 I remember reading this for the very first time and not being able to put it down. I wanted to read this slowly and I had every intention to take notes when I read it. But the book obviously had other plans because I just couldn’t stop reading! Before I even knew it I was already halfway through the book and just wanted to know how Simon’s story ends. And of course if he gets the man! *lol* Also Simon is so damn relatable!! Love this boy so much! ❤

10.) „Shatter Me“ Trilogy by Tahereh Mafi

13455782 Mhmm… *deep sigh* To fall in love with Aaron Warner for the very first time! To discover Tahereh Mafi’s beautiful writing style all over again. This would be amazing! I was in love the moment I started to read this book and I think this will never change. Everyone who’s able to read this series for the very first time is very lucky, indeed!

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which books would you love to read for the very first time and do we have some in common? Can you recommend me some books that would be amazing to read? And if yes do you want to relive them vicariously through me? *lol*

Talk to me and let me know!

The Agust D ‚D-2‘ Book Tag

Hey there, my lovelies!

To celebrate 1 year with Agust D’s ‚D-2‘ mixtape the Yoongi to my V came up with a book tag for it in May! And since I’m her V and a fellow ARMY she decided to tag me for it! I consider myself lucky to be tagged by her for all of her original BTS (BTS related) book tags because they are always amazing and I love to do them! 💜 I decided to go for a BookTube video again because I want this tag to spread throughout the whole world. *lol* It’s just too good and I hope many people will enjoy to do it as well! This said, let’s jump right into it!

Rules:

  • Thank whoever tagged you and link back to their post.
  • Link to the original tag’s creator: Sabrina @ Notes From a Paper Plane Nomad (please credit if using these graphics!)
  • Pick a book that fits each prompt.
  • Tag your friends or leave it open-ended!
  • Copy-paste these rules and list of prompts in your tag post (it should automatically pingback to the original so your post can be added to a masterlist!)

Here are the graphics with parts of the lyrics:

(All lyrics quoted are sourced from Doolset’s translations unless otherwise specified.)

“I wrote Verse1 f***ing fast,
But can’t make Verse 2 no matter how hard I rack my brain”

“Hit this town then cut and run in a jet
This country’s too small to hold me in yet” (lyrics from MV)

“What do you think, what do you think
Whatever you think, I’m sorry but I don’t f***ing care at all”

‘Strange’ (ft. RM): Dystopian

“We’re given multiple choices
And our taste is controlled by the capital”

“I grow older
And become to know the world
And yet, would it have been better to not know the world?”

“Whether it would become a blazing sun
Or the ashes left behind after being burnt —
Always, the choice and decision is yours to make”

“Your being ordinary is rather my being special
Your being special is rather my being ordinary”

“I thought I’d party every day when I become a superstar
But the ideal is slapping the reality in the back of its head”

“Set me free, I’m floating freely in the void”

“Still, as ever,
I miss you, and I miss you
Still, as ever,
The memories of us together circle around me

Dear my friend, how are you doing”

BONUS prompt!

If graphics aren’t your jam: Here’s a list of text-only prompts!

  • Moonlight: easy to get into but hard to finish
  • Daechwita: genre-bending
  • What do you think?: badass characters
  • Strange: dystopian
  • 28: coming of age
  • Burn It: fire in the cover/title
  • People: book you love that others didn’t, or vice versa
  • Honsool: didn’t live up to expectations
  • Interlude: set me free – feel like a dream
  • Dear My Friend: book involving letters/emails/notes
  • (BONUS PROMPT) Butter: sequel you liked more than Book 1

Tagging…

Since I couldn’t really tag anyone in the video except of everyone who watches it, I decided to tag people for it in this blog post!

Of course you don’t have to do the tag if you don’t want to! I just thought that you might! 😉

Also just in case you want to check out my BookTube channel: Here is the link!*lol*

Rankenzeile

This tag was so much fun and I want to thank Sabrina once more for creating it for us Agust D fans and ARMYs! The graphics and the prompts are super cool! They totally give me a Yoongi vibe! *lol* Did you read any of the books I mentioned in the prompts or do you want to read some of them? Do you want to do the tag as well?

Talk to me and let me know! 😉

And as always stay safe and healthy and take care!

The Smaugette Award!

Hey there, my lovelies!

I got tagged for this amazing Award by Brianna @ Brianna’s Books And Randomness and Emma @ A Few Chapters ‚til Love! As always this was a while ago and as usually I only got to it now. *lol* Anyway! What I want to say is the following: For some reason I love the idea of this Award, I mean „The Smaugette Award“! What a nice name! And then look at the awesome Smaug picture! How cool is that? XD This is definitely one of the coolest Awards I ever came across and Beck did an amazing job! 😉 

This said I want to thank Brianna and Emma for thinking of me when they did this Award! They are both amazing (and super lovely) bloggers and if you don’t know their blogs already you should follow their links! Now. I mean it! ;-P Okay, let’s do this!

A Smaugette is… I don’t even know. I just came up with it randomly like eight months ago and I don’t know why I did? I just did. Anyway, this tag is for people who are generally amazing. And that’s all of y’all.

RuLeS:

  1. Tag the creator (meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!)
  2. Make sure you have the rules and smaugette definition in your post!
  3. Tag 10 fantastic friends you believe are worthy of this prEsTigIoUs AwArD
  4. Answer the questions I have!
  5. Make sure you put the award in the post so people can bask in its fabulousness
  6. Give them a new thing to try (if they want) and (if you want) try the one I’ve given you!

What I was Supposed to Try:

„Write about something, anything, for at least ten minutes a day for a week. After the weeks ends, choose the piece of writing you’re proudest of and share it in a blog post. It can be anything, from a single sentence to the start of a novel, anything you want. Get out of your comfort zone a little bit and be creative!“

This prompt made me super creative and I even came up with a plotline for a book. Maybe I’ll write the beginning of it as a blog post. Right now my creativity is flowing so everything is possible.

What I want You to Try:

I’m such a sucker for poetry and have been writing poems for years. So I’d like you to try to write a poem. It can be short or long or some sort of rap. Whatever floats your boat! You decide how you want to go about it. 😉 And who knows, maybe you’ll even have some fun?

1. What is a random hill you would die on?

(If you don’t know what this means, it’s basically something totally random that you would fight for.) BTS are a family and they don’t fake their friendship for their fans! You can’t fake a friendship like that! Their closeness and their familiar friendship is real!!! Period! Fight me!

2. What are you being for Halloween?

Well, Halloween is still a long time away but I love to dress up so just let me think about it for a second. XD I think I’d like to go as a book character. The only question is as whom? Maybe a shadowhunter? That would be fun. Or a faerie?! (I’d love to dress up as Cardan hahaha) Mhmm… I’ll give that some thought and you’ll know when it’s Halloween! *lol* ;-P

3. Tell us about your favorite article of clothing and maybe(??) include a picture?

My favourite article of clothing… Mhmmm… I think that would be my BTS Hoodie. Let me see if I can find a picture of me wearing it.  There you go!

20210209_150407

4. What’s your favorite Thanos quote? Palpatine quote? Any quote?

“I know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right, yet to fail nonetheless.” – Thanos

I really hated what Thanos did, but at the same time I had some grudging respect for him and his view of the world. His character was so morally grey and super well done. I couldn’t hate him but I really, really desperately wanted to. 😉

5. Who or what inspires you?

What a loaded question! Well, prepare for a long answer. What inspires me? My family, my friends, BTS, nature, life with all it’s ups and downs. The good and the bad times, the quiet and the loud seconds of my days, my darkest moments as well as my brightest, life in general. Every experience I make, every breath I take, every second I live and feel and hope and dream! ❤ Life is beautiful, you just have to accept it with all it’s good and bad sides. 

Umm… so in short: Our world and the people in it inspire me and will do so until I take my final breath. 😉

6. What are your top five favorite memes?
 
 
50+ Funniest Game Of Thrones Memes Ever
 
K-Drama Life | Kdrama funny, Drama memes, Kdrama memes
  • Harry Potter memes | Fandom
 
 
 
7. Who is your favorite fictional dragon, (besides Smaug of course)?

I really don’t know all too many dragons but I think I might go with Incendiu, the dragon from Melika Dannese Hick’s „Deadmarsh Fey“. He was kickass! 😀

8. Top five favorite books right now?

I’m really glad that it says „top five favorite books right now“ *lol* because that way I can just go with the flow without overthinking my answer. ;-P Those are all books I read recently btw.

  • If This Gets Out by Sophie Gonzales (I had the privilege to read it as an ARC)
  • The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black (because Cardan!!! ❤ )
  • I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman
  • House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
  • The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
9. What is your ideal novel?

I’m a sucker for enemies-to-lovers, found family, bandlife, music/dance and the YA/fantasy genre. So everything that will include at least one of those tropes or be in the genre will make me happy as long as it’s done right. 😉 

10. What memory would you think of to cast a Patronus?

This is a really deep question and I thought long and hard about it. The strongest happy memory I have so far is the birth of my kid. Nothing. Really NOTHING beats that moment of happiness when you hold this little new life in your hands. (Well, the panic that hits right after when you’re afraid you’ll do something wrong is real too, but we won’t talk about this now. Happy memories, right?! *lol*)

I Tag:

Of course you don’t have to do the Award if you don’t want to but I thought you might enjoy doing it! 😉

Rankenzeile

This Award was really interesting and I loved the questions! Very creative, unique and thought-provoking. 😉 Thank you so much for tagging me Brianna and Emma! As always it took me a while to get to it but I’m glad I finally went for it! Also I hope you enjoyed my answers! Some of those questions were actually kinda hard to answer. *lol* This said:

Take care and stay healthy and safe!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Read In One Sitting

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: : Books I Read In One Sitting (or would have if I had the time)

Ohhh, this is going to be fun! Also just 10 books and series? Oh gosh! This is going to be tough, I read so many books that would fall into this category. Okay, let’s see what will pop into my mind first. XD

1.) Lord of the Rings by. J.R.R. Tolkien

727798

I got the entire trilogy for Christmas when I was 13 years old and I read all three books in one week. *lol* I was basically glued to the pages and only stopped reading when I needed to eat something, had to go to the toilet or had to sleep. My family was laughing so much because they couldn’t understand my obsession. XD Looking at it in retrospective I think LotR was my epic fantasy awakening. *lol*

2.) Harry Potter by J.K Rowling

72193. sx318 sy475

Okay, I think everyone who was ever a Harry Potter fan read those books in one sitting, right? I mean whenever the next one came out my family and friends knew that they couldn’t disturb me for the next couple of hours. I just had to read them really fast and I gobbled them up like nobody’s business. Which constantly led to a book hangover, because I had to wait another year or two for the next book to come out! Fun times. *lol*

3.) A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

17927395. sy475

I still remember the spring in which I started to read this series and I never regretted it. ACOTAR was the first Sarah J. Maas book I ever read and it got me totally hooked. I loved everything about the first book then went through the masterpiece that is book two and finally reached the ending after finishing the last page of ACOWAR. What a journey! ❤

4.) The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic

17259690

„The Foxhole Court“ is one of the books that totally caught me by surprise. A lot of my favourite bloggers and reviewers talked about it but I still didn’t get the hype. Well, at least not until I picked it up and immediately got hooked! *lol* Like seriously!!! There’s something about this story that made it impossible to let go of this book. I was OBSESSED with Neil and Andrew and I still am!!! XD Truth be told, I just started to read the second book and I don’t think I’m ready for this kind of obsession but you know… I just NEED to know! ;-P

5.) The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

17347389

Rarely did a series touch me as much as „The Raven Cycle“! I lived and breathed this series and for a couple of months it was the only thing I could think of! Yes, I was THAT besotted with it. Still am if I’m honest. ;-P There’s just something about all the characters and the magic of this series that got me totally addicted. But honestly, I wouldn’t want to have it any other way. The Raven Boys will always be in my heart! ❤

6.) Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat

22571663

I still remember the first time I read this series. Back then I was still in the closet and to read this felt like some sort of forbidden guilty pleasure. It was basically the first m/m book/series I ever read and probably not the best start for someone who’s still in the closet but I didn’t mind. Haha! I guess to read this series was sort of liberating and after the cuteness of book 2 and 3 I was totally excited about it. (Book one is a rough start but it only gets better with book 2!) I think in some way this series gave me the strength to come out and the next time I read it, I did it openly without hiding it anymore. =)

7.) The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

23395680. sy475

Ha! Everyone who ever read this series knows how addicting it is. *lol* Like you start with the first book and think: Oh the formatting is kinda weird, but okay?! And before you even know it you’re right smack in the middle of the plot and bite your fingernails because you just NEED to know how it continues!! Been there, done that, got the freaking t-shirt and I’ve been wearing it proudly ever since! Haha! ;-P

8.) Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

19547856

Ahhh Simon! This book was so full of cuteness that I just couldn’t put it down. I could relate to Simon so much and his conversations with Blue kept me glued to the pages. I remember wanting to read this slowly but before I even knew it I was halfway through the book and spammed the feeds of my goodreads friends with updates! *lol* My last update of this book was literally: „OMG! I can’t stop to read this book! I need to know!!!“ So I guess that says it all! XD

9.) The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer

41865

„Twiligt“ is an „old“ series or well, relatively old if you consider the fact that the first book was published in 2005. So this is actually one of those series I read in one go! It was summer, my sister and her bf were on a holiday and I had their entire flat to myself. Needless to say that I locked myself up in their flat with food and other supplies and didn’t come out before I had finished the entire series. *lol*  I was 20 back then… ahh I feel old now! >_< Haha!

10.) Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

13455782

„Shatter Me“ is one of those series I only discovered after joining goodreads but I’m really so glad that I did! XD I loved this series to bits and pieces and the writing style as well as the love story totally blew me away! I still want a bf like Aaron Warner and I think this will never change. ❤ I rushed through the entire series in about 2 weeks and this even though I could only read it when my kid was sleeping. *lol* So that should say it all. 😉

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Do we have some books in common? And if yes, did you rush through them as well? Can you recommend me a book that will glue me to its pages?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

The Bookish Baking Book Tag

Hey there, my lovelies!

I already know that I’m going to regret doing this tag once I’m finished because there is no way… Literally NO WAY I won’t get hungry after this! *lol* I mean alone the first prompt already makes my mouth water! Haha! So yeah, I guess I’m doomed! XD

Anyway! I was tagged for this by Elli @ AceReader and I want to thank her for thinking of me! If you don’t know Elli’s blog yet you should definitely go and check it out! Elli has a great blog and an awesome personality so you can’t go wrong with taking a closer look! 😉 This said, let’s do this!


Rules:

  • Thank whoever tagged you
  • Link back to them and the original creator (Kay @ Hammock of Books)
  •  Answer the 12 prompts, and feel free to use these graphics
  • Tag 5+ friends to share the sweetness

17347389Because quite honestly I’ve never read a better prologue in a book than the one in „The Dream Thieves“. (Okay, the one in „The Name of the Wind“ is amazing too. *lol*) Still, the atmosphere, the poetic writing, the way the pacing for the book is set! Perfection! This book already captured all of my attention with the opening lines and it stayed strong until the very end! ❤ Maggie Stiefvater is a true master of words!

34879283. sy475
I guess I’ll go with „One Day in December“ here because I really enjoyed that one and it gave me all the December and New Year vibes? *lol* Also this story was really something and it gave me all the feels! I felt so much with Sarah, Jack and Laurie it wasn’t even normal anymore and I remember being up until midnight because I just NEEDED to know how the story ends. XD

41473872 Nathan Allan from „I Wish You All the Best“! I recently finished reading the book and he’s just too precious and good for this world! Seriously, everyone should have a Nathan Allan in their life because this boy is an angel! ❤ He always did the right thing and knew exactly what Ben needed and he was so altruistic that it sometimes hurt! *lol*

16143347
Okay, that might be a super unconventional choice but „We Were Liars“ actually fits the bill?! *lol* Hear me out! So there are four liars named Mirren, Johnny, Gat and Cady and they always meet on an island in summer. They basically spent all their summers on this island until one year when there is a huge fire. And well, the rest is a super intriguing story that will blow your mind! So you better read that one because it’s good! ;-P

32768522 I get all giddy when I think about Simon and Baz and even though I read „Carry On“ a million of times after first reading it in 2017 it still makes me so damn happy. I’m always smiling when I think about this book and Simon and Baz will always cause me to end up as a melted butter puddle on the ground. I think „Carry On“ just gives me that feeling of undiluted happiness you usually only feel when you’re a child.

5297

I guess I’ll always go with „The Picture of Dorian Gray“ here! 😉 There are a lot of great classics out there but none is as good as this one. At least I haven’t read another classic that got me as excited as Oscar Wilde’s „Dorian Gray“.
29396
Everyone is always talking about Jim Butcher’s „Harry Dresden“ series but quite honestly I think that his „Codex Alera“ series is way better than the Dresden books. Yes, Harry Dresden is a cool guy and the books are easy to page through but the „Codex Alera“ series is so intricate and amazing! It’s epic and high fantasy at its best and I don’t understand why it’s still so underrated. Give it some love!!! XD

40495957. sy475

Nick and Charlie are the purest fluff ever and anyone who tells you otherwise didn’t read it! *lol* „Heartstopper“ is really the first (and only) series I think of when I hear fluff. ❤ And speaking of fluff I just realized that I should read more fluffy books because I can’t even think of one other book that was as fluffy as well. I need more fluff in my life so if you read this send your recommendations my way! ;-P

32075671. sy475 „The Hate U Give“ didn’t just have a good message it was an important massage as well and it still needs to be spread and heard! I really liked Starr and her friends and the way she used her voice to fight for the things that matter. Angie Thomas wrote an amazing book and I hope many people will read it!

35068705

R.F. Kuang’s „The Poppy War“ was so intimidating! Alone the sheer size of this book with more than 500 pages and then the entire plot and the things that happen in it! O_o To be honest I’m still not over „The Poppy War“ and after reading it I’m even more intimidated by the second book. *lol* I don’t know if I’ll ever have the guts to read „The Dragon Republic“! I’m scared! T_T

34325090. sy475 I could have gone with every single one of Alice Oseman’s books here but „I Was Born for This“ was so amazing that I just have to mention it! 😉 All the band members and Angel don’t only make for a super diverse cast but they are also very relatable and feel real! Plus we have a bi, gay and transgender rep which are all super amazing! ❤ Alice Oseman writes the perfect books, seriously! XD

16096824. sy475 This is probably one of the most hyped book series I know and it’s hyped for a reason. I loved the original trilogy and I really hope the next books that will follow will be great too. I’m currently reading „A Court of Silver Flames“ and since this book is about Nesta I’m very curious how I’ll come out of it. *lol*

I Tag:

As always you don’t have to do the tag but of course I’d be happy to see your answers! 😀

This was a super fun tag and I hope you enjoyed my answers! Thank you so much for tagging me Elli! It might have taken ages for me to get to this but I did it! Eventually! *lol* Also I’m super hungry after doing this tag! Like ahhh I need a cupcake right NOW!!! T_T

As always take care and stay healthy and safe!

Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Wishes – V’s Wishful Thinking

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Bookish Wishes (My birthday is today, so celebrate with me by granting the wishes of your friends! This is a popular thing to do on Twitter, but today we’re blog hopping. List the top 10 books you’d love to own and include a link to a wishlist so that people can grant your wish. Make sure you link your wishlist to your mailing address [here’s how to do it on Amazon] or include the email address associated with your ereader so people know how to get the book to you. After you post, jump around the Linky and grant a wish or two if you’d like. Don’t feel obligated!)

V’s Wishful Thinking: 

1.) The Dragon Republic – R.F Kuang

41118857. sy475

I read „The Poppy War“ in 2019 and it took me 2 years to get over it. So yeah, I’m finally ready to read „The Dragon Republic“ and I seriously hope I won’t be thrown by it for another two years. XD

2.) The Priory of the Orange Tree – Samantha Shannon

40275288. sy475

I recently dicovered that this isn’t just a super huge book but also features a f/f relationship which makes this a perfect wish for my kindle! ❤ I don’t think I want to carry a physical copy of those 848 pages around with me. *lol*

3.) Cemetery Boys – Aiden Thomas

52339313. sy475

I’ve been dying to read this book and I still didn’t get my hands on a copy! My library doesn’t have it and my personal bookshelves are already kinda full so to read it on my e-reader would be awesome. =) 

4.) The Fascinators – Andrew Eliopulos

48552059. sy475

This book had all my attention the moment it was mentioned it’s for fans of Maggie Stiefvater and Rainbow Rowell. XD A lot of reviewers enjoyed it and others didn’t so I’m very curious if it will be for me. I guess the only way to find out is by finally reading it. 

5.) One Last Stop – Casey McQuiston

55072663. sy475

And here I go with another f/f book and it even has some sort of time travel element in it! Ever since I read „Red, White & Royal Blue“ I’ve become a huge fan of Casey McQuiston and can’t wait to see what she did with this story! ❤

6.) A Scarcity of Condors – Suanne Laqueur

38089560. sy475

This is book three of Suanne’s „Venery“ series and I sooo want to get my fingers on it! *lol* So far I’ve devoured the other two books and I’m pretty sure this one is going to be amazing too! I really can’t wait to read this! 

7.) Can’t Take That Away – Steven Salvatore

56415353. sy475

My list is full of LGBTQ+ books and yep, this is another one of them! ;-P But seriously how could I say „no“ to this? It has a genderqueer MC and there’s a musical trope too! How could I ever resist this? =) 

8.) The Wise Man’s Fear – Patrick Rothfuss

1215032

I’ve waited years for „The Doors of Stone“ to come out but as it seems this will never happen so I figured I might as well finish reading the second book and therefore finish reading the series. *lol* If you read this Pat: WHY????? What did we ever do to deserve this?!! T_T

9.) Legendary – Stephanie Garber

36329818

I recently finished „Caraval“ and I’m so damn curious how this series is going to continue! Also I’ve been told that Legend and Tella are the MCs in here and I’m so ready to read more about those two! So of course this landed right on my „V’s Wishful Thinking“ list! 😉 

10.) The Sword of Kaigen – M.L. Wang

41886271

So many people told me that this is amazing and I’ve become more and more intrigued by all those reviews! *lol* I have absolutely no idea what it is about though. All I know is that „The Sword of Kaigen“ is fantasy but for me that’s already enough! After all I love myself a good fantasy series every once in a while. XD

So what about you? Do we have some bookish wishes in common? Did you already read some of the books that are on my wishlist? And if yes, did you enjoy them? What are your bookish wishes?

Talk to me and let me know!

The LGBTQ+ Rep Book Tag (Original!)

The LGBTQ+ Rep Book Tag4

Hey there, my lovelies!

I always wanted to do my own tag and last year during PRIDE month I thought: Why not make my own LGBTQ+ Rep Book Tag!? (Yes, it kind of rhymes again. You know, faeries and all that jazz! ;-P ) Anyway back to the topic at hand: Why did I do my own LGBTQ+ Rep Book Tag? Well, 1.) I tried to find an already existing tag I could do for Pride month but nothing I found was the way I imagined it in my head. 2.) Once the idea took root the muse of creativity hit me full force and I couldn’t have stopped for the life of me. 3.) I blame it all on May and Sabrina!!! *lol* No, seriously, those two girls were so creative when they invented their The Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus Character Book Tag and The School for Good and Evil Book Tag that I was inspired big time! ❤ 4.) I’m a part of the community so I figured… why the hell not? 😛

Additional and nonrelevant (at least for you) info:

  • I know my graphics aren’t nearly as good as May’s or Sabrina’s and probably way too colourful, but I did my best or at least tried to. Bear with me? *lol* T_T
  • I never made my own tag, so this is a premiere and hopefully a good one. XD
  • You don’t even want to know how long it took me to create this and I really hope you enjoy the prompts and puns/wordplays. There went a lot of thought into them.

Okay, I’m done now! So without further ado: Let’s just go for it!

Rankenzeile

2. CINNAMON ROLL: A book with an adorable gay character
3. BOYS & GIRLS: A book with a bi rep done right

13. STRONG BELIEFS: An LGBTQ+ book that deals with religion
14. RAINBOWS EVERYWHERE: A book with an unapologetic cover
15. FUTURE GENERATIONS: Your most anticipated LGBTQ+ release

Female Strength

34433755

I haven’t read „Girls of Paper and Fire“ yet but I heard that it has strong lesbian characters and I’m so ready to dive into it. The entire concept of a demon king that chooses 8 girls as his concubines sounds super intriguing and the promise of a slowburn f/f romance that defies the misogynistic structure of their land is just another reason to pick this up. Well, at least for me it is. ;-P

Cinnamon Roll

41150487. sy475

I already said it last year when I created this tag and I’ll say it again: There are way too many adorable gay book characters to name just one. Since I decided to chose Simon Spiers last year, I’ll go with another super sweet and adorable cinnamon roll in 2021! Prince Henry from „Red, White & Royal Blue“! I mean he’s a Warsie and a Potterhead and he is so damn cute I can’t even! I was a goner the moment he appeared on page and I still love my shy and sad boy! ❤

Boys & Girls

36285077. sx318

I tried to chose different books this year and the only other amazing bi rep aside from Evelyn Hugo I could think of is Javier Landes from „A Charm of Finches“. I love Javier so much and the way he came to terms with his bisexuality was amazing. He’s the perfect example that it is never too late to come out and to accept yourself for who you are. And what I really liked about this rep was that he was mainly attracted to women, but when he fell for a man it was head over heels. For me this was super relatable because it’s the same with me only the other way around. *lol*

The Body & the Soul

34325090. sy475 I still don’t know a lot of books that feature transgender characters, but I’m trying my best to find some! Truth be told I had no idea there would be a transgender MC in this book when I started to read it, but I was positively surprised when I realized that Jimmy was transgender! XD And of course the rep was great because Alice Oseman wrote it and this woman can WRITE!!! I loved everything about this book and it actually got one of my very rare 5 paw ratings. Plus I really liked that we got to see the medical side of things as well and what it means if you truly start to transition.

We're all queer

35442720. sy475

I still want to see more gender fluid reps in books and after reading Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) I realized that I want more sex positive reps in books as well. I mean Jack is gay and he likes to be free and unattached. He has a lot of sex and he’s totally okay with that. Jack was completely unapologetic about being gay and having sex with different partners and I think this is such an important message. More realistic and sex positive LGBTQ+ reps in books please!!

All about pronouns

41473872

How come this is still the only book I know that features a non-binary character? And how come I still haven’t read this? *lol* I put it on my June TBR this year though and I’ve every intention to finally read it. All the reviews I read about „I Wish You All the Best“ were great so far and since this is an own voices book I’m pretty certain it will be good. I guess you’ll be able to read my review soon. 😉

A Romantic Ace

42115981. sy475 Last year I actually forgot to mention an aro/ace rep and I was very shocked to discover that I didn’t even realize it. *shame on me* Maybe it’s because aro/ace reps are still so rare and it’s not easy to find them. I heard that „Loveless“ by Alice Oseman has an aro/ace rep though and it’s actually one of the few Oseman books I still haven’t read. XD I’m definitely going to read this as soon as I get my hands on a library copy.

One big Family

40495957. sy475

I’ll go with the same answer like last year because „Heartstopper“ is still the first graphic novel that comes to mind when I think about a book that features many LGBTQ+ characters. Charlie, Nick, Tao, Elle, Darcy, Tara and even their teachers are all so awesome and everyone in this series is queer af! *lol* I just love it! ❤ If any of you know another book that features that many LGBTQ+ characters please let me know! I’d love to read it!

Sapphic Love

52757526. sx318 sy475

I already said it last year and I’ll say it again: The world needs more f/f couples in books!! Like seriously! There are so many m/m couples I could have thought of but I had a really tough time to think of an f/f couple. Even more important: An f/f couple I can actually ship! Because let’s be honest here f/f couples are so damn rare and the ones that appeared in books didn’t persuade me … not at all! It’s like the litarary world doesn’t know how to write cute and adorable f/f ships. One ship however totally persuaded me! Sunati and Austen from „Always Human“ were the most adorable f/f couple I ever came across and I was totally blown away by this amazing webcomic! I can totally recommend it because the drawings are so colourful and awesome as well! So if you haven’t read this one already: DO IT! *lol*

Boys Love

32768522

Since I cursed myself for inventing this prompt last year I’ll go with another one of my favourite m/m OTPs here and this time around it’s Simon and Baz! Because they are too damn adorable and everyone who read „Carry On“ knows how awesome this ship is! *lol* The cuteness factor of those two is just off the charts and I love them so damn much I can’t even! ADKFKASFDLAJSDFKASDFJASDJFASKF! ❤

Side Kick

43822024

Jerico Soberanis!!! I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Jeri so much!!! ❤ And I’m still a little bit bitter about the fact that Jeri was introduced into the series so late because I loved her/him! Jerico is gender fluid and definitely one of the best side characters I ever read about! I loved that Jeri was so compassionate, loyal, honourable, kind, wise and beautiful!! I can’t help but wish there would have been an entire book just about Jerico. *lol* Such an intriguing and charming personality! I’m still besotted with her/him. XD

Stealing the show

23437156

Of all the couples in „Six of Crows“ Wylan and Jesper were my favourite one! I mean I don’t even know why I shipped them so damn hard but *lol* they were just too cute. Wylan is such a precious cinnamon roll and Jesper had that chaotic yet confident attitude going on. *lol* When they were around each other they were both shy though and ahhhh I just loved their interactions so much. ❤

Strong Beliefs

28919058. sy475

I’m always trying to bring rather unknown books to your attention and I think „Autoboyography“ fits the bill perfectly. Well, at least I didn’t see a lot of people talk about it and since this book was so good and caused me to cry like a baby… Well, just read it! Sebastian Brother broke my heart and I loved Tanner! I think I’ll never get over that scene with Sebastian and Tanner’s mom and I’ll always suffer with Sebastian. T_T Ahh my heart is breaking and mending once again.

Rainbows everywhere

48849624. sy475

This is one of the most beautiful and unapologetic LGBTQ+ covers I ever saw! I mean from the strong and bright colours to the flowers and the fact that you can even see Felix’s surgery scars this is just: WOW!!! ❤ Not to mention the plot of this book! Felix is black, queer and transgender and as far as I could read from the blurb this is a story about self-discovery, identity and first love. I’m so ready to read this!!!

Future Generations

57006689. sy475
I was lucky enough to get an ARC for this because „If This Gets Out“ will only get out in December 2021! And I absolutely can’t wait to dive into this book! I mean it’s about a boyband and two of the members fall in love after years of spending time together! They become an actual ship and as a BTS shipper (I ship them all as friends though. Well almost all, I can’t help but actually ship Taekook because ARGH!! Taekook make it really hard not to ship them romantically. *lol*) I just can’t help but be ready for this book! XD We’re talking an actual and confirmed fictional boyband ship here!!! ADFKLASDFKASDFJASDKFASDJ! I CAN’T WAIT TO READ THIS! ❤

I TAG:

Kaya @ A Fictional Bookworm!

Shannon @ Discover Elysian
Maya @ Her Bookish Desires
Elli @ AceReader

Of course you don’t have to do the tag if you don’t want to, I just thought some of you might enjoy doing it! XD

Also I’m sorry I couldn’t tag more people but I guess this is already a lot. *lol* If you want to do this tag and I didn’t tag you: You’re now officially tagged! ;-P The more the merrier!
Rankenzeile

This is my second time doing my own tag during pride month! So what do you think about „The LGBTQ+ Rep Book Tag“? Will you join the fun? (Say, yes?! You know you want to. ;-P ) I really hope I managed to do the LGBTQ+ community justice.

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe!

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Great Book Quotes

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is:  Book Quotes that Fit X Theme (Pick any theme you want, i.e., motivational quotes, romantic dialogues, hunger-inducing quotes, quotes that fill you with hope, quotes on defeating adversity, quotes that present strong emotions, healing, etc. and then select quotes from books that fit that theme.)

Okay, I decided to go for great book quotes here because there are so many and I love quotes no matter if they are serious or funny! ;-P They are just great quotes and fit no particular theme though. So I guess you might say this is my somewhat own spin on this topic. *lol*

1.) “The heart is an arrow. It demands aim to land true.” – „Six of Crows“ by Leigh Bardugo

23437156

I remember reading „Six of Crows“ for the very first time and I was so thrilled by all the amazing banter and the great quotes. Leigh Bardugo wrote a masterpiece with this duology (that’s going to be a trilogy at some point!) and some of the quotes she came up with are epic and will be remembered for ages! Also when I saw that they used some of the quotes as the titles for the episodes of the „Shadow and Bone“ Netflix series I was totally over the moon! ❤

2.) “Kiss me again,” he says, drunk and foolish. “Kiss me until I am sick of it.” – „The Wicked King“ by Holly Black

26032887. sy475

Okay, but seriously, Cardan’s quotes in this series and his attitude are one of a kind and I just couldn’t get enough of this faerie! I’m such a sucker for Cardan and when I wrote my „The Wicked King“ review I said he could easily be the 8th member of BTS. *lol* Big mistake! Now I can’t unthink it anymore and whenever I picture Cardan in my mind I see V now. Haha! Honestly though! Tae when he wears those golden contact lenses and has dark hair?! *screams in Cardan*

3.) ”War doesn’t determine who’s right. War determines who remains.” – „The Poppy War“ by R.F. Kuang

35068705

There are so many amazing quotes in „The Poppy War“ it’s really hard to pick just one, but after thinking about it for a while I decided to go with this one. It’s very true and when I read it in the book this really hit me. For me „The Poppy War“ was quite a challenging book because at some points I actually had to put it aside in order to digest what I read. Not gonna lie, I’m still not over a lot of the things that happened in here and I’m also still working on finding the courage to read book two.

4.) ”Fear was Can’t.
Fear was Won’t.
But fear wasn’t ever a choice.” – „Darkdawn“ by Jay Kristoff

52783987. sy475

Fear is a recurring topic in „The Nevernight Chronicles“ and it’s like a thread that’s running through the entire trilogy. There’s a lot of discussion about fear and the different shades it can come in, as well as how it motivates, paralyzes or inhibits us and guides our actions. I always like things like this in my books so I really enjoyed that Jay Kristoff addressed this as a topic in his books.

5.) “The trouble with denial is that when the truth comes, you aren’t ready.” – „We Are Okay“ by Nina LaCour

28243032

This was one of the few grief reps I had the pleasure to read and I really liked it. A LOT! Nina LaCour is such a skilled writer and she conveys the different emotions of grief so well. Plus everything she wrote in here is true and that really hit me in the feels. If you’re interested in a good grief rep and haven’t read this book yet I can totally recommend it!

6.) ”Asking to hold a musician’s instrument is roughly similar to asking to kiss a man’s wife. Nonmusicians don’t understand. An instrument is like a companion and a lover.“ – „The Name of the Wind“ by Patrick Rothfuss

186074

And here we go with another book that’s full of great quotes! Today I decided to chose the one about music instruments because it resonated so much with me when I read it. *lol* I feel exactly the same way about my bass and guitar and whenever someone wants to touch them I’ve to suppress the urge to clutch them. XD Also I agree: an instrument is really like a companion and a lover. *lol*

7.) ”My words are unerring tools of destruction, and I’ve come unequipped with the ability to disarm them.“ – „The Raven Boys“ by Maggie Stiefvater

17675462. sy475

I feel this quote on so many levels it’s not normal anymore. There are often times in my life when I feel exactly the same way Gansey feels while he says that. Sometimes we just can’t seem to be able to choose the right words and no matter how much we try, they still come out wrong and we’re misunderstood. I love this quote so much and I think about it often so it definitely had to land in here! XD

8.) ”Your love is worthless. It’s your hate I need.” – „King of the Dark“ by Ariana Nash

54359996. sy475

Vasili’s words are so ruthless and cruel, yet this quote has some unexplainable allure for me. *lol* I can’t really describe it but something resonated with me when I read it. Maybe it’s because I’m a person that believes that love can conquer everything and to hear that he doesn’t want love but hate instead is oddly fascinating? It implies that hate is the stronger emotion, but I think Vasili will stand corrected by the end of that trilogy. Or well, at least I hope he will. *lol*

9.) ”Listen and learn it, learn to tell it, and tell it to teach it.” – „A Charm of Finches“ by Suanne Laqueur

33299920. sx318

I think this is a great motto to live by and just one of the many reasons why I loved „A Charm of Finches“ so much! This book is really great and it tackles so many tough topics I had to cry mulitple times while I read it. Yet at the same time it’s one of the most beautiful books I ever read as well. Suanne!!! Damn why do you write such great books? XD My emotions are still all over the place!

10.) ”Don’t let him escape!” said Mum. “This could be your only chance at securing a spouse!” – „Radio Silence“ by Alice Oseman

41827561. sy475

I had to laugh so hard when I read this in „Radio Silence“! Frances’s mother was such a great character and I really love that parents are always an important part in Alice Oseman’s books. Unlike in other YA books they actually play an active role in their childrens lives and I think we definitely need more reps like that!

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which kind of quote theme did you chose for this „Top Ten Tuesday“ topic? Did you like the ones I chose and if yes which one was your favourite? Did you read any of the books I mentioned and did you enjoy them too? Are you planning to read some of them?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always try to stay healthy and safe!

The Winter Wonderland Book Tag

Hey there, my lovelies!

I was tagged for this by Juli @ Ich Lese last summer so I thought it would be fitting to do this tag now that it’s almost summer again. I know, I know, my brain works in mysterious ways sometimes. ;-P I could have done that in winter too, but nah. Where’s the fun? XD Anyway, as it seems this tag originated from Tracy at Truffle’s Literary Wonders so a huge thanks to Tracy for creating this tag. =) Also THANK YOU (this time actually in capital letters *lol*) to Juli for thinking of me when she did that tag! If you don’t know Juli’s blog already make sure to check it out! It’s a really lovely page and Juli has interesting content!

This said let’s have some fun and go for the answers! 😉

One: What book is so happy and so sweet that it just warms your heart?

32768522

Carry On – Rainbow Rowell

Just in case you didn’t already know this: I hug this book like a pillow before I fall asleep! *lol* No, seriously, a pillow is more comfortable but I just love this book so much! ❤ Whenever I think about Baz and Simon my heart gets all warm and soft and „Carry On“ never fails to make me happy! It’s just too sweet and the MCs are A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E! If you haven’t read this yet, you’re clearly missing out! ;-P


Two: What’s your favourite book with a white cover?

13449693

The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater

Was I even supposed to think of another book here? *lol* All four books of „The Raven Cycle“ have a white background and this series is one of my all time favourites! I just love all those four boys and I can’t get enough of them. I love this series and it’s characters so much it’s not normal anymore! ❤ So yep, I’ll always go with „The Raven Boys“ here! XD


Three: You’re sitting in a nice, comfortable chair with a cup of hot chocolate. What monster book are you reading?

34347493

The Name of the Wind – Patrick Rothfuss

This book is one of the biggest I ever read and I loved every second of it. I think I even read it in winter and mostly on cozy nights at home. Kvothe is one hell of a fine character and I love him so much! Seriously, he’s exactly the kind of hero I love in my books. So no wonder I ate this up like a pile of tasty pancakes. *lol* But seriously, if you’ve never heard of this book and never read it: Do yourself a favour and read it now! 😉


Four: It’s snowing outside and you decide you want to have a snowball fight. What fictional character do you want to have this snowball fight with?

The Infernal Devices – Cassandra Clare

Ohhh I’d be so ready for a snowball fight with Will and Jem! Just imagine all the banter and how fun it would be? They are my favourite shadowhunter duo and something ordinary like a snowball fight would be already amazing! ❤ Ahh why did you make me think of this. I want to go for a snowball fight with them now! XD

Five: Sadly, your campfire is dying. What last few chapters of a book would you throw in the fire to revive it and keep yourself warm?

Imagine Me – Tahereh Mafi

Just chapters? Can I throw the entire book in the fire? *lol* Because quite honestly the idea of throwing this into a fire was the only thing that got me through this book. XD Sure, there were a couple of nice moments but mostly I just wanted to shred it into little tiny pieces and be done with it. Wow, I finished this a while ago but as it seems I’m still salty! Haha!

Six: What book do you love so much that you would buy another copy of it to give to someone as a Christmas gift (or any gift really) to inspire them to start reading?

The Lies of Locke Lamora – Scott Lynch

I really enjoyed this when I read it for the first time and I actually got it as a Christmas gift for one of my besties. She reads a lot of fantasy books so I figured that one would be a great choice for her. Especially because Locke Lamora and his band of Gentleman bastards is awesome!

For some reason I think I enjoyed this even more because I did it in spring. *lol* Do you agree with any of my choices and which book would you throw in the fire to revive it? (Very curious about that one. XD) It as fun to do this and I’m looking forward to read your answers! Thanks once again to Juli for tagging me. ❤

And as always: Take care! And stay healthy and safe!
