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


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!

SASSY Saturday

SASSY Saturday

Hey there my lovelies!

Welcome back to the second round of my new 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

I don’t know how long this series has been on Netflix already but I just discovered „Soundtrack“ and I loved it! I’m such a sucker for musicals and musical series in general and I’ve been looking for something new ever since I saw the last episode of „Glee“. *lol* Okay, the actors don’t really sing in this one and only lip-sync but still! They dance and the music was great and the story was so heart-warming but also very sad. I loved how it has all those different characters and their lives overlap with time! ❤ Plus the mixture of songs was awesome, from Kelly Clarkson to The Weeknd, right to Etta James and then back to Ray Charles and Judy Garland. Okay, I think you can already tell how excited I’m about this. XD

A – Author you discovered

Sebastien de Castell! I just finished reading „Traitor’s Blade“ the first book in the „Greatcoats“ series and I’m surprised about how much I enjoyed it. XD This read really fast and was very entertaining so I’m pretty sure that I’ll read the rest of the series as well. 🙂 So definitely a new author I just discovered.

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Brandon Flowers  – Between Me and You

I swear this song has been stuck in my head ever since I discovered „Soundtrack“ on Netflix. I love the lyrics and that it’s so slow! Brandon Flowers knows how to get his message across! ❤ (P.S: I’m a huge „The Killers“ fan too!)

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

The kindness of the staff at my favourite Running Sushi restaurant! Over here our restaurants were allowed to open on the 15th of May (after 6 – 7 weeks) and now that they are open again (with lots of rules and restrictions) barely anyone eats at the restaurants. So my bestie and I almost sat there alone and even though it was pretty cool for us because usually the reastaurant is packed it still made us sad to see that our fave eating place struggled so much. So yeah, we started to talk with the cook and the waiters and it was so nice to interact with them. They all knew us because we’re regulars and they were so happy we came! Before we even knew it they asked us if we had a special wish and if they could cook it for us. This was so sweet! The cook was so happy to have someone to cook for and my bestie and I were in food heaven! ❤ The food kept coming, even new creations they wanted us to try out. I never experienced anything like this and I’m so glad we decided to eat at their place and to give them a chance to get back on their feet. The world needs more amazing places and people like them and we’ll definitely visit them again soon! ❤

Y – Your fave blog post of another blogger

The Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus Character Book Tag

The „forever and everly“ amazing May created her own original book tag and of course it’s about Percy Jackson and the „Heroes of Olympus“ series! I did this tag recently and I loved it so much!! ❤ May really put a lot of work into it (16 hours!!!) and created all the artwork/graphics herself! Which is more than just awesome! And because I love PJ AND May I’m using my own blog meme in order to shamelessly promote her awesomeness! *lol*


What do you think about „SASSY Saturday“? Would you like to join the fun? Did you discover a new author and what was your favourite song?

Talk to me and let me know! 😉

Allgemein, Awards

The Liebster Award – Part II

liebster award


  1. Acknowledge the blog that gave it to you and display the award
  2. Answer 11 questions that the blogger gives you
  3. Give 11 random facts about yourself
  4. Nominate 11 blogs and notify them of their nomination
  5. Give these blogs 11 questions to answer

First things first! I’ve been nominated for „The Liebster Award“ by Miri @ The Book Dragoness, Elli @ AceReaderBeck @ Smellfoy Can ReadEmma @ A Few Chapters ‚til Love and this is already Part II! In Part I, I answered Miri’s and Elli’s questions. Now it’s Beck’s and Emma’s turn! I still love you guys and once again thank you so much for the nomination! ❤ I feel very honored that you all thought of me and I’ll try my best to answer all those interesting questions! Also to everyone who’s reading this just now: Those four girls are amazing and their blogs have awesome content! So if you don’t know them already I can totally recommend their blogs! 🙂

Since this is already Part II I’m going to answer Beck’s and Emma’s questions now! Are you ready?


1. what was your first blog post about?

It was about starting my blog and I asked people to be patient with me because I needed to figure things out. So pretty lame, I guess. *lol*

2. if you had to become a disney villain for a day, who would you be?

Ohh, I love villains so that’s a pretty tough question. When it comes to Disney villains I think I’d like to go with Hades, though. I just love mythology and he’s such a funny villain. At least I think he is. xD

3. what is your favorite podcast to listen to?

I don’t have one which probably makes me so 2000 and late but what can I say?! If I listen to anything it’s music or simply the radio so there’s that. *feels like I lost about a 1.000 coolness points now*  *lol*

4. what Doctor Who creature do you identify with the most? (if you don’t watch Doctor Who just look it up and take a guess)

Creature? Wow…. all Dr. Who creatures I know are pretty scary. (e.g. Dream Crabs, The Silcence, The Boneless,…) so I’ll just go with something not scary like „The Adipose“. Haha! They look pretty cute and if you want to lose some weight they can be very helpful, plus they are harmless. XD

5. what is your favorite gif?

Because I’m such a soft marshmallow on the inside (don’t tell anyone I ever said that) & because I love Yuri and Victor! ❤

6. most paranormal experience?

I saw a ghost at one of my former companies and she walked right through me. *shudders* Definitely something I don’t have to experience again. *lol*

7. open your junk drawer (I know you have one) and grab a couple random items in the bottom of the drawer. Tell me what they are (incorrect answers only)

Hair clips, collectible figures, foreign currencies, …. Well, all the nice things you put into a junk drawer when you need to get them out of the way. 😛

8. which Spider-Man? Tobey, Andrew, or Tom? What about Spider-Verse characters?

I really liked Tobey when he was Spiderman but I think Andrew won me over. He managed to give Spiderman such a vulnerable and sweet side. One of my all-time favourite Spiderman scenes is when he comes back from the fight and still brings Aunt May her eggs. It’s such a moving and genuine scene. Ahhh I can’t even! ❤

9. what is your favorite meme? (don’t tell me, show me!)


Because they are both spot on and me in a nutshell! *lol*

10. did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the wise?

Haha! Yes, about a thousand times. I’m such a Warsie! 😛

11. just go on a mini rant about anything.

A mini rant is so hard to write when you have nothing to rant about. *lol* I mean I could rant about the fact that I’ve been stuck at home for 5 weeks but then again who isn’t? If you want a proper rant from me you better read my next 2 paws review. *lol* 😛


  • What’s a book you love, but hate the cover of?

When I first read the „Shatter Me“ series I read the book with the cover above and I think it doesn’t fit the series! I dunno who decided to make a cover like that, but it’s horrible and completely at odds with the series. In the end I bought all three books with the beautiful covers for my book collection at home. (see down below)

13455782   13104080   13188676

They are a sight to behold! ❤

  • Most anticipated read of 2020?

„The Silvered Serpents“ by Roshani Chokshi! I even requested an ARC through NetGalley just to read it! And was declined! T_T (Sometimes it’s tough to be an international blogger… ) I just hope the book will get out in September like it was supposed to.

  • How do you take your coffee? (If you don’t drink coffee, how do you make your favourite drink?)

HA! That’s the right question for me! I’m such a coffee addict! I always joke that there is coffee running through my veins! *lol* And to answer your question: I only drink it with a little dash of milk and no sugar.

  • Do you lend out your books?

I do, but only to my besties. I’d lend them to my family too but they don’t love to read as much as I do and even more important they don’t read in English like I do. *lol*

  • Are reading / blogging slumps a problem for you?

Not really, but every once in a while I fall into one and then it’s pretty bad. The last time I got into a reading slump was at the beginning of March and I just couldn’t bring myself to read anything because I was so tired and exhausted all of the time. Well, and because of that I was in a blogging slump as well. XD I guess they always go hand in hand. The book that eventually got me out of it was „Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian“. *lol* Uncle Rick is the best! ❤

  • What is your favourite summer-time activity (that isn’t reading)?

Swimming. Unfortunately Austria is a landlocked country and we don’t have the sea. So it’s either the (public) swimming pool or a holiday at one of our many lakes. (And holidays in Austria are very expensive!) I wonder when I’ll be able to go on a holiday again… With Covid-19 it might take quite a while until I’ll be able to see the ocean again. 😦

  • What is your favourite winter-time activity (that isn’t reading)?

Hard to decide. I love skiing and ice skating but like I already mentioned above holidays in Austria are very expensive. Especially skiiing holidays. I can go ice skating anytime though. 🙂 So that’s something positive! (That is, of course, if anyone of my family and friends would be able to stay on their feet. *lol* The last time I was skating I went with my colleagues because they know how to skate! XD)

  • Cliffhangers; love ‘em or hate ‘em?

Oh, I think cliffhangers and I have a very intense love-hate relationship. 😛 I hate it when they appear but they make everything so much more interesting so I just gotta love them even though I hate them. Talk about feeling conflicted. Haha!

  • Do you have a favourite bookstagram account you follow?

Nope, actually not. I mean I know a few people that have one and I sometimes take a closer look at their bookstagram account but I don’t have one myself and therefore don’t follow anyone. Tbh I wanted to make an Instagram account but for some reason Instagram wouldn’t let me and I always got an error message. I tried it with my phone, I tried it from my computer, but no matter what I did, it didn’t accept my information. *shrugs* So yeah, after trying really hard to make an Instagram account I eventually decided that if it doesn’t want me, I won’t try anymore. >_<

  • What is a TV show you can’t get into, but that a good friend loves?

One of my besties loves „House of Cards“ and even though it sounds really good I still haven’t managed to watch it. Maybe it’s because I don’t like Kevin Spacey or because this series already has 6 seasons with a total of 73 episodes? I’m always hesitant before I start such a long series because just like with books I want to know how it ends… even if it’s not good. XD Did any of you watch it already? Is it worth the hype?

  • Do you keep your room tidy?

I keep my entire flat tidy. Or as tidy as it can be with a little rascal that loves to throw toys everywhere. *lol* By now she’s gotten better at putting them away again though so it’s not as bad as it used to. (I used to stumble over her toys when she was smaller because as a toddler she basically dropped them everywhere. XD) Ahh the infinite joys of child-rearing. 😛


(As promised here comes the other half! 😛 )

6.) I suck at jogging. Yes, really! Due to a knee and back injury I just can’t seem to be able to run. I know lots of people like to jog but I just can’t. Let me swim or dance or ride a bicycle, but don’t force me to run. *lol* I hold it like Elijah Wood in „The Faculty“: I don’t think that a person should run unless he’s being chased.“ 😛

7.) I don’t like clowns or dolls for that matter. They give me the creeps! I mean they are damn scary!! My sister used to collect those porcelain dolls (thankfully she had moved out by then and they were at her own home) and all I could think of was: Boy, am I glad that I don’t live in this house with dolls. *shudders* So yep, I guess you’ll NEVER EVER find me reading „It“. (I might get a heart attack just reading it. >_<)

8.) I always feel cold and therefore prefer hot/warm weather. My feel-good temperature starts at 25 degrees. 😉

9.) When it comes to choosing between McDonalds or Burger King it will always be Burger King. *lol*

10.) I’ve a cooking dimploma and thus am a trained chef. So I basically could start working at a restaurant if I’d want to. I love to cook for my family and friends but I don’t think I’d enjoy working as a chef though. XD

11.) I have 5 ear holes. 3 of them are piercings and 2 are your ordinary earring holes. What no one knows is that I did the ordinary earring holes myself. When I was four years old my aunts and I went to pierce them, but when I was seven they inflamed and I stopped wearing them which led to them becoming overgrown. So when I was a teen I finally figured out that I’m allergic to nickel and got myself silver earrings instead. Well, I’m sure you can imagine the rest. *lol* (No gory details here…) I did the other 3 piercings when I was 14 at a piercing studio though. So don’t worry! 😛


1.) Are you a coffee, tea or cocoa person?

2.) Early bird or really grumpy in the morning? (Always interesting to know! 😉 )

3.) What is the book genre you read the most? And why?

4.) The best book/movie related dream you ever had? (I want details. *lol*)

5.) Who is your favourite Disney princess or prince and why?

6.) What’s your favourite dish?

7.) A book (series) that’s totally unknown but you love it with all your heart? (Me, looking for a new favourite? Nope, never! XD)

8.) Do you have siblings?

9.) Do you or did you ever play a musical instrument? Which kind of musical instrument is/was it?

10.) Which kind of book character is the most like you?

11.) Your favourite quote! =)

The End of the Year Book Tag

Hey there my lovelies! ❤

I was tagged for this by the ever amazing Anna @ My Bookish Dream. Thank you so much for thinking of me! 🙂 If you don’t know Anna and her blog already, you should definitely check it out! It’s really a lovely blog and her content is very interesting!

  1. Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

You mean except of the 4 that are on my „currently reading“ shelf right now? *lol* I always finish my books! XD It might take me ages to read some of them but I’ve never dnfd a book so umm yeah.

  1. Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?

I’m a huge mood reader so I usually don’t read books conforming to the seasons, but every now and then I make exceptions. Especially in October because it’s Halloween month and who doesn’t want to read something spooky in October? 😉 This year I’m going to read these two:

25654338__SY475_    38255342

  1. Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

I think I died about a thousand deaths waiting for THOSE TWO BOOKS to come out:

45171300__SY475_    43888604

By now „Wayward Son“ is already out, but I still don’t have my copy!!! T_T

  1. What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

Mhmm since I should read the books on My Book List 2019 I’ll go with those three! „Circe“ by Madeline Miller, „Defy Me“ by Tahereh Mafi and „One Day in December“ by Josie Silver! (Because I just ordered it from my library and I’m so planning to read it in December! *lol*)

  1. Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?

I really dunno! I’m pretty sure I’ll love all the books I just mentioned, but one that will shock me and become my favourite? Hard to say! This year the only book that managed to do this was „Red, White & Royal Blue“ because no matter how much I expected to love it, I certainly didn’t expect to love it so damn much! ❤ There are still 3 months left though, so who knows? 😛

  1. Have you already started making reading plans for 2020?

As a matter of fact, YES! *lol* There are a lot of books I want to read next year and I already started to write my Book List 2020. I’m not going to make the same mistake I made in 2019 though. Haha! I wrote so many first books of entire series on my list and when I started to read the series, I couldn’t stop. So yeah, instead of the one book that was on my list, I suddenly read the entire series and didn’t read the other books that were still left on my list. (Typical me!) I definitely won’t make the same mistake twice. XD Plus since I’m a mood reader I’ll try to keep my list diverse!

I tag:

I hope you’ll enjoy doing the tag but if you don’t want to do it that’s okay too! 😉

This was a lot of fun, so thanks for tagging me Anna! I hope to read my answers was fun too! XD

Take care, my lovelies & have a nice day!

The “I Should’ve Read That Book” Tag!

Hey there, my lovelies!

I’m finally catching up with my book tags and decided that I’d go for the „I Should’ve Read That Book“ tag today! Funnily enough I got tagged for this by Elli as well as Caidyn! So a huge thank you to both of you for thinking of me while doing this one! 😀 It’s always nice to get tagged and it’s a lot of fun to answer the questions. 😉


  1. Thank the person who tagged you and link back to their post .
  2. Link to the creator’s blog in your post (Link)
  3. Answer the questions.
  4. Tag 10 others to take part.

A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read.


People keep telling me that I need to read „A Darker Shade of Magic“ by V.E. Schwab and after reading „City of Ghosts“ a couple of weeks ago and „Vicious“ right now, I can’t wait to get to it! XD I’m sure I’ll love it too!

A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked up

That would be „War and Peace“ by Tolstoy… I don’t know how many years this has been on my TBR but it’s already been there when I joined goodreads about two years ago. It’s just so huge! And I’m kinda worried that I won’t like it and then be stuck with it. *lol* I recently read „A Tale of Two Cities“ by Dickens though, so there’s still hope that I’ll get to „War and Peace“ one day. Well, at least Dickens was on my list for ages as well. 😉

A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten around to finishing yet

„Hunted“ by Kevin Hearne. I love „The Iron Druid Chronicles“ so much, but my library still didn’t get the 6th book and now I’m wondering whether I should wait for them to get it or if I should buy it so I can finally continue. >_<

A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read

„Of Mice and Men“ by Steinbeck. It has a nice ring to it, yet I never actually read it. XD Mhmm, maybe next year? I’ll definitely put it on my „Book List 2020“.

A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read


Where to start? *lol* There are so many but if I’d have to chose one it would be „The Cruel Prince“ by Holly Black. Everyone and their grandmother already read it and I’m probably the last one who didn’t pick it up yet. And this even though it is on my „My Book List 2019″. To procrastinate is such a lovely habit. *lol* 😛

A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet

Okay, I’m so there with Elli when it comes to „The Umbrella Academy“! I loved the Netflix series as well and I can’t agree more! Klaus and Five are everything!!! I loved those two so much and I can’t wait to see season two! ❤ (There’s going to be one, right?! Because there’s no Gerard Way this is going to be the official ending!! I need more!!!)

A book you see all over Instagram (Twitter) but haven’t picked up yet

Well, erm… that question makes me feel like a dinosaur now, because I neither have Instagram nor Twitter. *lol* Is that bad? XD I thought about getting one of them but I never know which would suit my bookish purposes best. Maybe some of you can give me tips?

I’m tagging:

This was a lot of fun and I hope you’ll enjoy doing the tag as well!

My Good Reading Habits Tag

Hey there my lovelies! I was tagged for this by Caidyn and I’m glad he decided to let me do this tag too. So after he tagged me to talk about my bad reading habits I eventually got the chance to talk about my good reading habits as well. (Which is good, because it restored my faith in my own reading habits and made me realize that I actually do something right after all. *lol* 😛 )

The rules for this tag are pretty simple:

  • Pingback to Ally’s original post or her blog in general!
  • List some of your good reading habits, the things you think you do well
  • Nominate some of your blogging friends

So without further ado let’s get to the good stuff:


That’s certainly one of the things I’m really good at. *lol* No matter how long ago I read something, I still can remember the main plot and the names of the characters. For instance a few days ago my mom told me that she’s reading a romance book but that she doesn’t remember the name. I was like: “What characters is it about?” And she answered: “Oh, there’s a girl named Savannah.” So my brain somehow remembered that “Dear John” by Nicolas Sparks featured a character named like that and we had the title. XD Don’t ask me how I’m doing this, I wish I’d know it myself. I’m also good with birthdays, numbers, faces, names and I have a very good orientation and three-dimensional comprehension. Just in case you wondered. *lol* Too much information? Okay, let’s move on!


I’m totally with Caidyn when it comes to this. I mean I’m definitely a fantasy and YA fan but I’m always trying to broaden my horizon and read other genres as well. I think so far I’m doing a pretty good job of reading different genres in 2019. At least I already read 1 mystery and 1 science-fiction book. XD


I never dnfd a book. XD I know some of you will say: “WHAT? That’s a good thing?” And I’m telling you: Yes, I think it is, because I need to know how the book ends! Even if I loathe it with all my heart I’m still curious enough to want to know what happens next. (Do you know the saying “Curiosity killed the cat”? Well, I suppose that cat would be me. *lol*) But once I finished the book I can say that I really hated ALL of it and that I know what I’m talking about. Plus I think every author has a reason to write her/his book and there is always a lot of thought and creativity going into it. You might say that I have respect for the author and her/his work and therefore don’t dnf books even if I hate them. ;-P

(I kinda envy people who can dnf books though. *LOL*)


Maybe that’s also the reason why I never felt the need to dnf? I have no clue why I always seem to pick the right books, but for some reason it rarely happens that I give a book a two or three paws rating. I guess I’m just lucky?! *lol*


This was a very cool tag and I’m glad Ally invented it. It always helps to focus on the good things in life and this was perfect to remind me of the things I love about reading. I hope you enjoyed to read through my answers and I’m looking forward to read yours too! 😉
