Your Assumptions About Me

Hey there, my lovelies!

At the end of September I celebrated my 3rd Bloggiversary and asked you about your assumptions about me. So many of you sent me assumptions and some of them were surprising while others caused me to smile or even made me laugh! *lol* Since three years is such a long time I decided to involve my BookTube as well and in the end didn’t only ask for assumptions about me over there as well but also decided to make a video out of all the assumptions I got. It was fun! XD Well, at least for me it was! *lol* I hope you’ll have fun watching it too! So without further ado: Here are my answers (truths) about your assumptions about me!

This said I wanted to thank you all for joining the fun and for sending me so many assumptions! I had such a blast when I read through them and it was even more fun to answer them! =) So what about you? Were you right with your assumptions about me or did I give you an answer you would have never expected?

Talk to me and let me know! 😉

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe!

SASSY Saturday

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:

1. Credit the creator of this tag (The Sassy Library Fox) and link back. (so I can see all your amazing answers!)
2. Answer the 5 questions below!
3. AND enjoy doing the blog meme! 😛 

„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

Sex Education: So since my October was a disaster (reading wise and life wise) I found myself binge watching „Sex Education“. The episodes were pretty short (45 – 50 minutes) and Otis’s and Jean’s love lives were just too entertaining. *lol* I really enjoyed watching those episodes and quite honestly I think it’s the perfect series for teenagers because it tackles a lot of serious topics and this in a humorous and sensitive manner. It’s sex education, indeed! XD Also I think the characters I loved the most were Eric and Aimee. Aimee is such a sweet girl and I loved her to bits and pieces! ❤

A – Author you discovered

31119095. sy475

Philip Reeve – Railhead

So this is among the favourite series of my bestie! She’s the Yoongi to my V and of course I had to read it! And let me tell you this: I was not disappointed! Quite the contrary! This was amazing and I loved every second of exploring this strange and intriguing world! „Railhead“ is definitely something different and I loved the sentient locos and the world building as well as the characters. If you want to know more you can always read my full review: here!


S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Jung Kook – Falling

I know another BTS song but seriously can you blame me for loving this masterpiece??!! JK’s voice is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!! I didn’t even know he could have such a slightly gritty/gravelly (is this the right word?!) voice! Like OMG!! It feels like I listened to him for the very first time all over again! This hit so hard! Especially the part when he sings that super long „again“. Like AHHHH!!! I actually had tears in my eyes when he hit that note. I love it. I love it! I LOVE IT! Seriously, JK’s voice is not from this world and I’ll forever be in awe of his vocal range! This man is awesome! And my music loving ARMY heart is happy!

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

How little I actually managed to read in October. T_T Life was pretty tough this last month and I had a lot on my plate so this shouldn’t have come as a surprise but when I wrote my monthly Wrap-Up I only started to realize how little I read. *lol* Let’s just hope November will be a better reading month and that I’ll manage to read more books. (And that I will actually be able to write reviews about them as well, because currently I’ve a backlog. >_< )

Y – Your fave blog post of another blogger

How I learn Korean Pt.4 @ It’s IB!!

I’m so bad at blog hopping at the moment and I’m so sorry I don’t give everyone the attention they deserve but UGH October was really not my month and I had a tough time keeping everything running. This said: I DID enjoy Ib’s blog posts about how she’s learning Korean though! They are really, really helpful and I discovered a couple of new ways to learn Korean through them! So if you want to learn Korean too: Ib is your girl! 😉 Thank you, Ib! Your blog posts are great, informative and help a lot!

What do you think about „SASSY Saturday“? Would you like to join the fun? Did you already listen to „Falling“ and did you once again fall head over heels for JK as well? (This man!!! ❤ ) Did you watch „Sex Education“ too and if yes what did you think about the series? Which new author did you discover last month?

S – Series you loved this month

„Free!“ Which is an anime series about a swimming team! *lol* I bet you never saw that one coming after all the k-dramas. XD But quite honestly I’m still not over „Crash Landing on You“ and I’m waiting for my Yoongi to finish the series so we can buddy watch the next k-drama. I need a buddy for k-dramas, they make me too emotional. Haha! Anyway! „Free“ is a really nice series and I love the found family trope! The only thing the four swimmers in the team have in common is their love for swimming and their female first names, but slowly and steadily they become friends and then family. ❤ It’s really so sweet to watch and I can totally recommend it!

A – Author you discovered

Michelle Hodkin – The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

Now this was quite an interesting start for a series. I loved how Hodkin played with the typical YA tropes but somehow still managed to go for something really unique. XD Also can we appreciate sweet, kind and sexy Noah Shaw? ❤ That boy is just ahhh! I loved every conversation Mara and Noah had. They kinda have an enemies-to-lovers vibe going on, but not really? Like it’s obvious they are attracted to each other but Mara tries to stay away from him because he’s kinda the bad boy of the school. Add memory loss and a mental health rep into it and you have a really intriguing start for a trilogy. I can’t wait to dive into the next book!


S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Coldplay X BTS – My Universe

Okay, technically this was only released on September 24th but since I’ve been listening to it every second I got a chance to this definitely qualifies as the song I couldn’t get enough of. Also the official video premiere of the music video was on September 30th and I quite literally watched it on my phone while I was on my way to work! *lol* The things us ARMYs do for our lovely boys! ❤ Also please tell me some of you watched the documentary of „My Universe“ because it was amazing and I love it so much! The mutual respect between Coldplay and BTS was quite a sight to behold and ahhh the way Chris was blown away by their professionalism and their strong brotherly bond was everything!

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

Okay, this is getting pretty serious now but yeah one of my family members that is close to my heart has health problems… the really severe kind. And I was on my phone writing with my Yoongi and she was there for me and listened to me basically word vomiting out all of my fears and worries and mostly sadness. So while we wrote she was silent for a couple of minutes and then she wrote that she just looked it up on google because she didn’t want me to feel even worse by having to explain it all to her. And I was already in tears but this kidness and the way she watched out for me only caused me to cry even harder. I have no doubt she’s reading this now so: THANK YOU!!! So, so much for not only being there for me when I needed it, but for also being such an amazing and awesome friend! ❤ I’m so grateful we became friends through BTS and being ARMY and I consider you to be one of my besties! Girl, if I haven’t told you already I’m doing it now: I purple you and I heart you! ❤

My 3rd Bloggiversary!! & Your Assumptions About Me!? ;-)

Hey there, my lovelies!!

I can’t believe I’m actually typing this but as my WordPress notifications pointed out to me I had my third bloggiversary yesterday! Wow! O_o I don’t even know how that happened but apparently it did? *lol* I can still remember how hesitant I was to start my own blog because I knew it would be a lot of work and I wasn’t really ready to commit to it. But then a lot of you guys and my goodreads friends told me that you’d definitely read what I write so I gave it a shot and I never regretted it! XD

Still, I can’t believe it’s three years already. By now I even have my own BookTube channel and without all the support I got from you guys over those last three years and without my goodreads friends I never would have started my own channel either. So yeah! I want to use this blog post and chance to give you a huge THANK YOU!!! ❤

Thank you to everyone who followed my blog ever since I started in 2018!

Thank you to everyone who only joined recently and decided to click that „follow“ button!

Thank you to everyone who still bothers to read my long-ass reviews! *lol*

Thank you to everyone who wrote me supportive messages, comments and tagged me over the years! =)

Thank you to everyone who still reads and likes my crappy poetry! XD

Just THANK YOU!!! ❤

It means so much to me that I became a part of this community and that my blog is still going strong. It’s my baby and quite honestly I never would have expected it to grow that much! I might even hit the high number of 450 followers soon so that’s about 400 more followers than I ever expected this blog to have. *lol*

If I actually hit that number I might go for another giveaway! I guess we’ll see and find out, because I have quite a couple of achievements to celebrate and might include my subscribers on BookTube too. Mhmm! I’ll have to think about it! XD Anyway what I wanted to say is THANK YOU! ❤ I hope you’ll continue on this journey with me and I’ll do my best to keep things interesting. 😉

So for now to celebrate my three year anniversary I thought it might be fun to collect your assumptions about me! I recently saw this on BookTube and it sounded like fun! *lol* So what are your assumptions about me? Write them down in the comments and I’ll answer them in one of my next blog posts! I’m sure you guys all have assumptions about me so I’m very curious to see what they are! XD

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Do you enjoy my content? How long have you been on WordPress? Longer or shorter than me? XD What kind of content would you like to see more of? And which kind of assumptions about me have you collected over the years? Talk to me and let me know!

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

S – Series you loved this month

Crash Landing On You: So this k-drama was recommended to me by my Yoongi’s mom and let me tell you this: Her mom has impeccable taste in k-dramas! *lol* ❤ I love this so much and since every episode takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes I’m still not done with the series. As for what it is about: Se-Ri is among the rich and the famous of Seouls upper class and has her own company. One day she tests a new product of her company, a parachute but on that day there is a sudden tornado and before she even knows it she’s in North Korea and desperately tries to get back to Seoul. And of course there is a handsome and kind-hearted captain named Ri Jeong-hyeok and his funny side-kicks that try to help her get back to South Korea. If you haven’t watched this yet: Do it! It’s soo good! Very heart-breaking but also super funny and ahhh this just hits you in the feels! T_T

Claire Legrand – Sawkill Girls

I never expected to enjoy this book so much but wow Claire Legrand totally persuaded me of her writing style! This was great and would have been a perfect Halloween read for me. XD Also it tackles a lot of important topics like misogyny, feminism and abuse. I’ll watch out for her next book now. =)

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

TXT – 0X1 = LOVESONG

I got soo hooked on this song! *lol* TXT recently released a new song and had their comeback, but I’m still vibing to this one. (Not that I’m not also vibing to their new one. XD) Anyway! I really love their music and it’s very catchy. Plus the members are all so adorable! They feel like my little brothers and TXT needs to be protected at all costs.  ❤

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

Apparently I have … fans?! O_o Which totally caught me off guard because I never expected to have actual fans that would love my BookTube videos and watch all of them. *lol* I know you’d think that’s kind of the intention when you start a BookTube channel but I actually started it for fun and to try something new in order to help other people to find the perfect book. So yeah, I really appreciate that there are people out there who love my content. XD If you read this: Thank you so much for your continued support and all the lovely words! ❤ It means the world to me that you’re following my bookish journey!l I don’t think I deserve to have such amazing fans but I’ll try my best to keep things interesting for you! ❤ ❤ 💜

And @ Tova: Sorry I didn’t write the entire title of the blog post. It was just too long. Haha! I hope you can forgive me? 😉

S – Series you loved this month

My Love from the Star: This was such a good k-drama! When I first started to watch it, I wasn’t all too convinced if I’d like it, because it was my first k-drama playing in modern times and not in the Joseon dynasty. *lol* (Yeah, I love to watch historical k-dramas) But ahh the story of an alien that comes to earth and spends 400 years on it before there is another opportunity to leave our planet immediately grew close to my heart. Especially because he falls in love in the last 3 months before he has to return. AHHHH!!! T_T This k-drama had it all: family, enemies-to-lovers, historical elements, wisdom and while it made me laugh at the beginning it had me in tears during the last couple of episodes. I swear I cried a river! So, so, good! *cries again*

Sophie Gonzales & Cale Dietrich – If This Gets Out

I didn’t just discover those two authors I also ended up loving their book!!! „If This Gets Out“ was everything I ever wanted and even more and I loved this book to bits and pieces! ❤ Ruben and Zach were amazing and I will ship Zuben forever! *sings* „And I will go down with this ship…“ *lol* Okay, enough of me singing and back to the topic at hand! „If This Gets Out“ was great and I loved that the authors tackled a lot of serious and interesting issues as well! So if you can get your hands on a copy: DO IT!!! Highly recommended! Also if you love BTS and ship one of the band ships, this is the perfect book for you! *lol* ;-P


S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

BTS – Permission to Dance

How am I supposed to write another song in here?! Just when I thought I would listen to „Butter“ all summer long (which I still do btw *lol*) they threw out their new single „Permission to Dance“ on July 9th! And it is sooo amazing, I can’t even!!! This song gives me all the good vibes and positive energy and it makes me so, so, so happy! You have no idea! XD I love how BTS uses their music to spread positivity and hope and I’ll never get tired of talking about them! Because after all their struggles and hard work: They DESERVE it!!! Also can we acknowledge how thoughtful and awesome it is that they used sign language in their choreo?! 💜 💜 💜 And because I love their song so much I decided to take part in the „Permission to Dance“ challenge too. Usually I only post book videos on my YouTube channel but I just couldn’t resist. So if you want to see me having a good time while I dance to their song here’s the video:

Let’s spread hope and happiness in this horrible Covid time! And even if you’re no fan of BTS and not part of ARMY I’m sure me goofing around and having fun should be enough to make you smile! (or at least to make you laugh about me. *lol*)

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

That I got my second shot of the vaccine and ended up having side-effects… Again! *lol* Like seriously! I thought the second time it would be better and for a while it actually was. I got vaccinated on a Saturday afternoon and up until Sunday around lunch time everything was okay. Well, and then I got a headache made in hell, fever and chills. I slept the rest of Sunday, didn’t even get out of bed on Monday and went back to work on Tuesday like nothing ever happened. So weird. *lol* The good thing is: I’m fully vaccinated now and should be fine! =)

My obsession for Cdramas + thoughts on Nirvana in Fire by Sahi @ My World of Books

I just loved everything about Sahi’s post because I could relate so much when it comes to being obsessed with dramas *lol* In my case it are k-dramas though but after Sahi’s post I’ll definitely check out a couple of her cdama recommendations because they sound really great too! If you’re a fan of k-dramas or c-dramas or basically any sort of drama you should read her post! I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as well. 😉

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! ❤

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. 😉

I just loved that blog post and was so happy to discover new f/f romances.

We definitely need more amazing f/f couples in our lives and Elli’s blog post was amazing! ❤

Book Recommendations: Pride Month Edition – 10 Books with Trans, Non-Binary and Genderqueer Rep to Read During Pride Month! by CW @ The Quiet Pond

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!

Shadow and Bone: I watched all of those 8 episodes at the beginning of the month and I regret NOTHING! *lol* I wasn’t all too sure they would be able to combine the two book series but they did a marvellous job and I really love the cast they chose! Also I liked that they made them older because it was way more realisic that way. XD Can’t wait for season two!

Hwarang: This is a buddy watch with my Yoongi and I’m so happy we’re watching this together because I live and breathe for her commentary and our discussions and theories about the episodes! *lol* You might say I came for Tae but stayed for the amazing cast and all the drama! ;-P But seriously this series is sooo damn good! So far I laughed and cried and shook my head and bit my fist! Haha! I’m feeling all the feels and I really hope this will end well for all of the Hwarangs. Also V is so damn adorable in this series I can’t even! ❤ (Plus the entire cast! Including V of course! All. so. damn. pretty!!!)

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

BTS – Butter

I know, I know! It’s a BTS song again but seriously I’ve been listening (and dancing) to this ever since it came out and I just can’t get enough of this song! It’s too good! I love everything about it and the lyrics are some sort of personal attack. *lol* This is a song for ARMY and I’m sooo happy about it!!! ❤ ❤ ❤ Also the visuals! They are set on giving ARMY a heartattack! I will never get over JK AND Tae (in the GMA Summer Concert „Butter“ version) having a ponytail!!! NEVER! *dies*

Oh, and just in case you want to hear my thoughts and see my reaction to „Butter“:

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

That I reached the amazing number of 90 subscribers on my BookTube channel. Quite honestly I never thought I’d even get close to that so it’s a surprise so many people are following and apparently also enjoying my channel. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll even reach the magical 100. *lol* You can always dream, right? ;-P

Y – Your fave blog post of another blogger

Why Leigh Bardugo’s Crows ARE The Umbrella Academy @ Hundreds & Thousands of Books

I enjoyed that post so much because it’s TRUE!!! *lol* If you compare the crew of „Six of Crows“ to „The Umbrella Academy“ you just gotta admit that they have similarities. XD I never thought about it until I read that blog post and now that I did I can only agree! This was a great idea and if you don’t already know „Hundreds & Thousands of Books“ you should definitely check out this blog! 😉

SASSY Saturday

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:

1. Credit the creator of this tag (The Sassy Library Fox) and link back. (so I can see all your amazing answers!)
2. Answer the 5 questions below!
3. AND enjoy doing the blog meme! 😛 

„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

„Get Even“ –  Now this was actually quite an interesting series on Netflix. It’s about 4 girls that are tired of how things are handled (or rather not handled) at their school and form a club that’s named D.G.M. They expose everything that goes wrong and no matter if it’s the PE coach or a student, they set things right. But suddenly a student is murdered and all the hints lead to D.G.M. I really enjoyed this series because it reminded me a lot of „Pretty Little Liars“ and the four girls were all interesting and had their own background stories. XD

„Spinning Out“ – This is a series about figure skating and since I’m a fan of figure skating this was perfect. It’s not only about the two sisters Kate and Serena Baker though but also about their personal struggles with their mother and about the toxic and complicated „friendships“ between figure skaters in general. What was really interesting were the bipolar and PTSD rep. You rarely see them in shows so kudos for daring to tackle those serious topics. It’s kinda sad there’s only one season.

A – Author you discovered

40402188. sy475

Lev A.C. Rosen – Now this was a book I thoroughly enjoyed! I loved Jack’s column and the mystery element was super intriguing! I can’t emphasize it enough: There need to be more YA books like this! Realistic books about sexual intercourse are still so rare and I loved this sex postive and direct approach! I want more unapologetic and blunt books like that and I’m definitely going to read L.C. Rosen’s next book! ;-P

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

BTS – Blue & Grey

I just love this song with all my heart! And I’m currently feeling „Blue & Grey“ too so this is just perfect. I can’t thank Tae enough for writing this song because it resonates so much with me and whenever I’m tired and on my way home from work, I listen to it. It somehow gives me the energy and strength I need to continue with my day. BTS is quite literally balm for my exhausted soul. ❤

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

That I got two ARCs I’ve been dying to read through the „Read Now“ option on NetGalley. Like „YES“!!! I’m so going to read the hell out of them! They both sound amazing! 😀

Y – Your fave blog post of another blogger

Review: House of Earth and Blood by Lia @ Chain of Novels

I absolutely loved and adored Lia’s review of „House of Earth and Blood“! ❤ Reading her review reminded me so much of my own experience with this book and all the ups and downs! I got hit by the feels just reading through Lia’s thoughs and her review totally resonated with me. *lol* So if you don’t know Lia’s blog already click the link and give her some love! 😉

What do you think about „SASSY Saturday“? Would you like to join the fun? Which new author did you discover and do you feel „Blue & Grey“ sometimes too? XD Am I the only one who’s surprised when they actually get an ARC from NetGalley? *lol*

Talk to me and let me know! 😉

Hugs’n’Kisses OR Dismissed by the Missus/Messrs

Hey there, my lovelies!

The last time I did this was about two months ago and since I’m currently reading the book I decided to „hug and read“ I figured it would be time to go for another round. I’m not doing this meme as often as I’d like to but I guess I can do it at least once every two months. That way I’ll still be able to reduce my TBR and feel no pressure to do so. This said: Let’s go for it! =)

The rules:

1.) Link back to the original post @ The Sassy Library Fox (I really want to know if it works out for you and I’m curious about your book choices! ;-))

2.) Choose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it are 3 random numbers from 1 – 295, so for instance I’ll pick 43, 164 and 214)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (43 – For a Few Demons More, 164 – Not Your Sidekick, 214 – Kushiel’s Dart)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Kushiel’s Dart: I’ve owned this book for about 2 years and I didn’t read it because I held out hope that my friend would buddy read it with me. After two years the chances we’ll actually read this are super slim though so I decided to just go for it. It’s time to move on and to finally read this!)

One to kiss and keep, (For a Few Demons More: This is book 5 in a series and I’m pretty certain I’ll continue to read it once my library opens up again and I get my hands on an English copy. *lol*)

One to dismiss and weep! (Not Your Sidekick: I’d usually be the first one to jump at the opportunity to read a LGBTQ+ book, but a lot of my GR friends didn’t really enjoy this and the ratings are pretty low. For now I’ll dismiss it and weep. I might come back to it one day though. Never say never.)

5.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)

Rankenzeile

So I’m currently at 295 books and still far away from my goal of 275. I know I’ll get there one day though! I’m determined to reduce my TBR even though publishers and authors make it really hard to fight against the flood. *lol* If I can make it under 290 this year I’ll definitely count it as a win. XD

*hugs’n’kisses*
