September Wrap-Up

Wrap Up

Okay, so September was different?! *lol* I dunno what happened but I think I read more in September than I read all year and to me this comes as a surprise because I honestly didn’t think I’d get any reading done this month. Or well, at least I prepared not to get a lot of reading done and picked super short books for my TBR. Which is hilarious because I didn’t finish reading any of the short books in September but actually managed to finish all the long ones that have been on my „currently reading“ for ages! XD

And this despite me being super busy! I studied a lot in September and finished the first course of my educational sabbatical. Yet I somehow still read more than I read all year? What is that evil sorcery? *lol* My only explanation for this is that there actually exists something like stress reading? I guess the more I’m stressed the more I need to find some sort of balance? So lots of stress equals lots of reading in my free time?! We’ll just roll with this explanation and take it! ;-P

This said September felt like an extremely short month and for me it was over before it even began? I mean we’re in October already and I’m like: Where did September even go? I suppose it was me being extremely stressed by my own studying, my kid starting school and lots of other life things that just happend. Honestly 30 days?! Where did they go? This month was over in the blink of an eye and before I continue to wonder I’ll just go for my monthly wrap up instead!

Books read: 5 (5 books & 0 webcomic, I actually didn’t plan to read any long books in September, but then I did? Stress relief reading, it’s a thing. ;-P )

Pages read: 1.803 (Who am I even? I haven’t read that much all year. *lol*)

Average rating: 4,30 (It was a great reading month, indeed! 😀 )

Books that were on my reading list: 0 ( 0 from 2020, 2 from 2021 and 2 from 2022, Okay. Once again who am I? 4 out of 5 books were actually on my TBR?! O_o)

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue: 4 Pfoten,5

I absolutely loved this book! Honestly, this was such a long anticipated read and all the raving reviews just made me even more curious about Addie LaRue. After reading it I can say: For me it was totally worth the hype! I adored the writing style and the plot and characters were amazing! Henry was my precious boy and no matter how much I wanted to dislike Luc, I just couldn’t bring myself to do so. He was fascinating. Also Addie! She was such an interesting MC and I loved to follow her through the centuries. I’m a sucker for stories like that! ❤

Nick and Charlie: 4 Pfoten

I found this in my library and just couldn’t resist to borrow it! I mean I’m a huge „Heartstopper“ fan and I loved every single book of Alice Oseman I ever read so I just had to know how Nick and Charlie’s story continued. Little did I know that this short story would turn out to be such a rollercoaster! *lol* I was happy, I was sad, I was frustrated and angsty, I was hopeful, cosy and depressed. Jeez! I felt so many emotions reading this it’s not normal. 159 pages that packed quite a punch! XD

Rebel: 4 Pfoten

Just in case you didn’t know that already: Daniel „Day“ Altan Wing owns my body, heart and soul!! I love this man so damn much you have no idea!!! So to read this felt like coming back home! ❤ I loved to see an older Day! He grew into such an amazing man (Not that he wasn’t before. He was always amazing!) and to get to know this new and older version of him was awesome! Also I really liked to find out more about his brother. The Wing brothers are quite something and I’d honestly love to meet them in real life. Haha! I enjoyd this so much!!!

Legendborn: 5 Pfoten

This book was such a surprise! I mean lots of people told me that it’s amazing but woah I had no idea how awesome it would actually turn out to be! This was: WOW!!! I loved that Tracy Deonn tackled so many different and difficult topics (racism, LGBTQIA+ reps, grief, etc.) in this book and she involved them so well! This story was everything and Selwyn Kane is my new book bf! ❤ I love his character and honestly I just want to see more of him in the next book. Bree was a super amazing MC as well and I can’t wait to pick up book two!

Verity: 4 Pfoten

All I can say to this book is that it was a mindf*ck! Every warning I ever got regarding this book turned out to be true. It’s just a shame that everyone always warns you about the trigger warnings but no one actually names them in their reviews. I’ll definitely rectify that with my review and I’ll mark them as spoilers so that it’s your choice if you want to go in blind or not. Gotta be honest here, as a parent it would have been really nice to know about some of the tw! This said the book was really good. Dark, disturbing, sickening but good. Hence my rating of 4 paws. It was good but I won’t ever read it again. XD

SASSY Saturday

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

Locke & Key: I finally finished watching „Locke & Key“ on Netflix and I really enjoyed the series! I mean it were 3 seasons and there was never a dull moment. Not many series manage to pull that off. Also all the different keys and what they could do. So intriguing. I think I might try to find the comics this tv series was based on and actually read them because I think season 3 was the last one and I don’t want to part with this world just yet. XD

Love, Victor: Yes, this person here finally caved and bought a Disney+ gift card for three months. So I have Disney+ until December and I’m currently binging the hell out of that limited abo. I watched all three seasons of „Love, Victor“ whenever I could and since the episodes are fairly short (30 – 35 minutes and 28 episodes) it was pretty easy to get through this wheneve I needed a break from studying. *lol* It was such a cute series and I really loved that there was even a cameo of Simon and Bram. XD As for the other LGBTQIA+ reps. Well, I think they would have needed some work, but oh well. Has anyone of you seen the series and agrees with me? xD (Also I watched „Permission to Dance“ twice already. Love to see my boys on TV ❤ )

A – Author you discovered

55507414. sy475

Tracy Deonn – Legendborn

I think Tracy Deonn was actually the only new to me author I read in September but I’m really glad I discovered her through „Legendborn“! This book was everything I hoped it would be and even more! Also I really like Nick but Selwyn Kane owns my heart, body and soul! ❤ *lol* I loved how Tracy Deonn managed to combine so many different topics in her book and tackled them with so much care. I mean the bandwith is insane! We have racism, LGBTQIA+ reps and topics, an amazing grief rep, magic and even demons and that all nicely wrapped in an Arthurian retelling tale. I can highly recommend reading this book!

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Crush feat. J-Hope – Rush Hour

Those two legends just threw out this song and it’s so much fun and amazing! I love to listen to it and it’s such a cool song to vibe to. Also the videos about their collabo were so nice and wholesome. They really respect each other and it shows. Love those two. ❤

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

How many people actually took part in my Giveaway! I was pretty overwhelmed for the first couple of days because the entries just came rushing in and there seemed to be no stop to it. *lol* I did it on all my social media but the biggest bulk of entries definitely came from IG. So if you want to do a Giveaway I can really recommend to go for it on there. XD Well, I guess it helped that it was international and apparently not a lot of people do this. I was totally unprepared for all those participants and this definitely caught me off guard. In a good way of course. 😉
