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

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. 😉

Please keep giving me all the f/f romances by Elli @ AceReader

I just loved that blog post and was so happy to discover new f/f romances. I still think there aren’t enough of those out there in the world and I sometimes have the feeling that they are drowned out by all the great m/m releases. We definitely need more amazing f/f couples in our lives and Elli’s blog post was amazing! ❤

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

Since June was pride month I decided to feature two of my fave blog posts this month and this one also made it on my list! I’ve been following „The Quiet Pond“ (what an amazing blog name!!! <3) for quite a while now and they always have amazing content and well-thought-out blog posts. During pride month they even went for a Pride Month Edition in which they introduced lots of books with different LGBTQ+ reps and I lived and breathed for it! If you don’t know them already you should so click that link and discover their blog!!!

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

S – Series you loved this month

Ginny & Georgia: This was quite a series. It felt like some weird mixture of „The Gilmore Girls“ meets „Pretty Little Liars“ with a little touch of WTH? *lol* I mean Ginny and Georgia definitely don’t have a lot in common with Rory and Lorelai but I could see some parallels like the young mom that’s cool and the silent broody kid that wants to fit in. XD Still, this series had dark secrets and that made it rather „Pretty Little Liars“ than „Gilmore Girls“. ;-P

Tiny Pretty Things: I always knew ballet was tough but boy, this series was an entirely different level of tough. *lol* These ballet dancers play dirty and they all have their tricks to get their place in the spotlight. Competitiveness is more than just merely a word and some of those students would do everything for a solo. So that leaves us with the question of all questions: Who pushed Cassie from the roof? XD

A – Author you discovered

43597287. sy475

Emily Henry – Beach Read

This was something entirely different than I expected but I still paged through it and enjoyed it immensely. Emily Henry managed to mix some serious topics with romance and a dash of humour and I think she did it more than just well. XD I’ll definitely watch out for her other books now.


S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Olivia Rodrigo – Drivers License

This song is really slow and sad and it gives me all the feels! March was a tough month so I kind of listened to slow music? Guess I’m one of those people that show their mood through their music song choices. *lol*

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

How much I love and care about my online friends. I got really close with Jello and Sabrina and I can’t even remember my life without them. I mean I never met them in person and probably never will but they’ve both become such an important part of my life. ❤ I’m so glad I found such great friends and I hope our friendships will stay strong for the rest of our lives. @ My Yoongi: I want to meet your kids one day! *LOL* ;-P 💜

Songuage #13: Film Out – BTS by Pannaga @ The Tomboy’s Attic

Okay, so technically this post was written by Pannaga at the beginning of April but due to my health issues I was really bad at blog hopping in March and decided to go for a recent blog post I loved. Which brings me right to Pannaga’s! *lol* She’s an ARMY like me and her reaction to the new BTS MC „Film Out“ was so relatable that it made me happy and caused me to laugh! XD So if you like BTS you should definitely check out her blog and give her some love! 😀

S – Series you loved this month

Fate – The Winx Saga! Luckily it’s been a while I watched the original series and read the comics. So I don’t remember all that much and while watching the series I got a feeling that this is actually working in my favour. *lol* (For instance I vaguely remember that Bloom had shoulder length straight red hair and no long red curls. XD) So I really found myself enjoying this tv series even though I’m pretty sure that it doesn’t have a lot in common with the original. Okay, I admit Bloom was a little bit too reckless, impulsive and rebellious for my taste but I definitely loved Terra and Musa! ❤

A – Author you discovered

39689878. sy475

Nic Stone – This was the first time I read a book from her and I really liked that it caused me to think. This was definitely a thought-proving read and if you’re looking for something similar to „The Hate U Give“ I can totally recommend „Dear Martin“! They have similar topics but they are very different in their approach and I really liked this. 🙂 Also because this topic is still important and relevant: #BlackLivesMatter

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Dua Lipa – Physical

My sister is the reason why I love this song so much now. *lol* She wanted us to dance to this together on my birthday and well, you all know me, I love to dance so I said: Okay, I’m game. XD Little did I know that this song isn’t only earworm material but also very exhausting to dance to as well. We gave it our all and were really happy afterwards. Tired but happy. It’s been a while we were able to dance together but now that it’s allowed to meet another household again we just went for it. (We all got tested before meeting up too. Better safe than sorry! 😉 )

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

There were actually two things that surprised me in February:

1.) I reached 400 followers on my blog and since this was my longterm goal for 2021 I’m kind of… overwhelmed? *lol* I really need to celebrate this somehow! For now: Thank you guys so much for following me and for liking my blog and content! ❤

2.) I started my own booktube channel in February and no one is more surprised about this than I am. *lol* Like seriously, what am I even doing? XD My sister and my brother-in-law have way too much faith in me but well, I guess I’ll just try it out and see where this is heading. If you’re interested in my YouTube channel you can take a closer look at it here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5JIlW3yzWkOH0PFewOqdbw

And before the question even arises: Yes, I’ll continue with my blog on wordpress! My channel won’t kill my blog, if anything it will be some sort of extension of it. 😉

Fanart Friday: Happy birthday j-hope! @ Notes From A Paper Plane Nomad

Yes, my Yoongi! This time it’s you in the spotlight! ;-P Sabrina who I affectionately call Yoongi because she’s the Yoongi to my V is one hell of an amazing artist and I love her drawings to bits and pieces! The picture she made for J-Hope’s birthday is amazing and I love all the colours and details she put into it! ❤ This must have been a hell of work but she’s so modest about it! So this is a shout-out to my dear friend and her skills! Give her (and Hobi) some love and take a closer look at that awesome drawing!

Hey there, my lovelies!

It’s been ages I last did this! In fact it’s been so long I needed to blow away the dust that settled on my blog meme! *lol* There! Better! XD I really should do this more often in 2021 and maybe I’ll even make a new logo. On the one hand it’s funny to see my old logos and creations because it shows how far I’ve come as a blogger, but on the other hand I can’t help but cringe whenever I see them. And this one is certainly no exception to the rule. Haha! Anyway, let’s do this! =)

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 74, 138 and 252)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (74 – Mind Games, 138 – The Darkest Night, 252– Broken Throne)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Broken Throne: This is a book that isn’t only on My Book List 2020 but also one I already own so this is perfect! 😀 )

One to kiss and keep, (The Darkes Night: This sounds like one of those books I might read when I crave for something fast that has a couple that can’t keep their hands from each other. *lol* So I’ll just keep it for now. You never know when THAT kind of mood hits you. ;-P )

One to dismiss and weep! (Mind Games: Hmm I can’t help but wonder why I added this to my list. Sure it’s paranormal and urban fantasy which I like every once in a while, but the plot really doesn’t capture my interest. Why did 2017-me add this to my TBR? *lol*)

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

I still didn’t reach my goal of 275 books but hey at least I’m at 293 now! *lol* With all the amazing books that are constantly hitting the stores it’s really tough to keep your TBR in check and considering it all I think I’m doing a good job. I was already at 306 once so as long as I’m slowly but surely approaching a number under 290 I’m good. XD

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

Bridgerton! Okay, to say I loved it might be a little bit too much, but I definitely enjoyed watching it. There’s something to be said about English Ladies and Gentlemen that court them. *lol* The scandals, the love affairs, the little gestures no one is supposed to see. Still, I’m really glad I don’t live in 1813 because I probably would have died if I’d have been forced to marry a guy I didn’t love. Especially because my only purpose would have been to bear him children and urgh… can you even imagine a person like me living in times like those? XD Nope? I can’t either! So it’s nice on the TV screen but it can definitely stay there. ;-P

A – Author you discovered

40197454. sy475

„A Curse So Dark and Lonely“ by Brigid Kemmerer! This was another „The Beauty and the Beast“ retelling and I really enjoyed reading it. With a storyline that started in modern DC and ended in a parallell world named Emberfall this had quite a unique spin and even though the MCs didn’t persuade me completely: Grey the side character certainly did! I love him and I can’t wait to read book two! =) Also we had a cerebral palsy rep in here and I think it was nicely done.

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

D’Angelo – Unshaken

I really had to think long and hard to come up with a song that isn’t from BTS because I’m currently once again obsessed with their music, *lol* This said, I really like this song as well. It’s the soundtrack from a Game named „Red Dead Redemption“ and according to my spouse this game was amazing. XD  (Apparently it’s some sort of cowboy/bandit game and you’re one of them.)

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

I guess by now you all know that I’m ARMY so I wanted to do something fun and took a „Which BTS Member Are You?“ Quiz on BuzzFeed a couple of days ago. *lol* I really love all of them and can never decide for just one member but when it comes to characters I thought I’d probably turn out to be like Jimin, J-Hope or JK. So I was really kind of pleasantly surpised when it said I’m like Tae. XD

„V

You’re just like V! Similar to Taehyung, you’re very open and friendly. You’re a kindhearted individual whose free spirited nature easily attracts people from all over the world. You’re beautiful on the inside and outside, so continue to be your amazing, friendly self!

Big Hit Entertainment“ 

Source: „Which BTS Member Are You?“ @ BuzzFeed

This is actually kind of funny because we definitely share the nickname „V.“ I don’t know about all the sweet things that were said in this though. I mean they are obviously true when it comes to Tae. ❤ (sweet boy that he is! XD) But I’m not sure if they fit me too. *lol*

S – Series you loved this month

„Dash & Lily“! I’m so glad Netflix is still going strong because during this second lockdown I definitely need some series and movie distractions. *lol* This said „Dash & Lily“ was great! I loved that they got to know each other through a book and the back and forth between them was fun! XD I didn’t know this was based on a book but once I figured it out I did my research and found out that Rachel Cohn and David Levithan wrote this together. Considering the cuteness I’m not surprised. ;P I think I might give it a try when I’m in the mood for Christmas cheer. For now I can really recommend the series! It’s very sweet and gives you all those happy giddy feelings. =)

A – Author you discovered

Erin A. Craig! I’m currently reading „House of Salt and Sorrows“ and I think I’m on my way of becoming a huge Craig fan. The dark and gloomy atmosphere of this book is just amazing and I love the world building so far! I can’t believe this is actually her first book because damn this is great!! So yes, Erin A. Craig is THE new author I discovered last month! 😉

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Billie Eilish – when the party’s over

I know a lot of people say this and I’ll say it too: I love Billie Eilish and her songs! They are all so meaningful and her voice! Boy, this girl has such an amazing voice! ❤ „when the party’s over“ is a really beautiful song and you can’t help but hurt with her. I think we all made experiences like that and Billie manages to convey them in such a careful and gentle manner. I can really recommend to watch the video Billie Eilish carpool karaoke with James Corden! It’s amazing and captures Billie, her life, her songs and how she recorded them (in her own room btw!!!) so well!

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

November was a very sad and tough month for Austria. We didn’t just go into another lockdown but we also grieved. On November 2nd terrorists attacked people in the first district of Vienna and our whole country was upset, angry, confused and twitchy. Still, no matter how hard the blow, despite all the restrictions and keeping our distance in times of Covid, we still managed to give each other strength and the solidarity of the people in my country was overwhemling. ❤ I’ve never been so proud to be Austrian and I loved that everyone was taking care of each other. So yes, the strong solidarity surprised me but it also gave me hope for the future and made me very proud. 😀

The BTS ‚BE‘ Book Tag + song commentary by Sabrina @ Notes From A Paper Plane Nomad

I love it when people create original tags and Sabrina’s original tags are some of the best! ❤ I recently did her „The School for Good and Evil“ book tag (which was a lot of fun) and this month she went for an original BTS ‚BE‘ Book Tag! Since I outed myself as a BTS fan by liking her TTT about them she tagged me for this one too and of course I’ll go for it! (I just don’t know when… sometimes it takes ages for me to get to certain tags because as you all know I’m a snail. *lol*) Anyway! I’ll definitely do this one and I hope you’ll give it a try too! Sabrina deserves all the love so if you’re a BTS fan too: What are you even waiting for?!! 😛

There will never be a universe in which I won’t love this series to the moon and back! ❤ And I’m so glad I finally have it on DVD and Blu-Ray! I swear Yuri’s and Victor’s relationship is EVERYTHING!!! I mean, how could you possibly not love them and this show?! There’s competition, there’s figure skating, there are amazing friendships, there’s love and trust and hope and fear and ARGH!!! It’s just amazing! If you haven’t watched it yet, do yourself a favour and take a closer look! Yuri and Victor are the best! 😉

I mean, it only took me three years to pick it up, but we all know I’m a snail! *lol* Still, no matter how late I jumped the hype train: THIS STUFF IS GOOD!!! I didn’t expect to get addicted to it so fast but three things are for certain: 1.) Neil Josten is a precious cinnamon roll and needs to be protected at all costs!!!! 2.) Andrew Minyard is a dangerous and volatile minx and I adore him!! 3.) I’m so going to read those two sequels. XD

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Greg Laswell – Dodged A Bullet

There’s something about this song! I just can’t seem to get enough of it. Maybe it’s the melody or the lyrics, but it speaks to me somehow. Don’t ask me, I can’t describe it! All I know is that this soft guitar version is amazing. 🙂

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

My bestie and I recently went to a new Japanese restaurant that has an „all you can eat“ buffet! So we decided to try it out because as you all know by now we’re suckers for Japanese food. *lol* Anyway, we ordered our drinks and barely sat there a few minutes when all of a sudden a robot rolled towards us and offered us our drinks. XD As it seems it’s name is Yuki and it hands out the bevarages at the restaurant. This was really funny and I’m sure we’ll go there again. Guess we got a glimpse at the future. 😉

SHINING A LIGHT ON BOOK BLOGGERS’ WORK: WHAT DO WE REALLY DO?

I absolutely loved Marie’s blog post!!! There were so many things she mentioned and I agreed with a lot of them! I think this was a really nice way to appreciate book bloggers and to point out that to be an influencer doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ve to be a book tuber. We’re fond of the written word and there are plenty of people that still read it! XD So keep on writing guys and check out Marie’s amazing post! 😉

What do you think about „SASSY Saturday“? Would you like to join the fun? Did you discover a new author and what was able to surpise you last month? Do you think server robots might actually become an integral part of our near future?!

Talk to me and let me know! 😉

Death and Despair

Girl:
Please sweet death come down on me!
Touch me with your black wings
And set my fire free!
Take me to the depths of hell,
Take me to heaven,
I don’t care,
It’s all the same,
It’s all well!


Death:
Why do you call for me?
Why should I end your life?
Is there any reason for me?
Is there even a reason for thee?

Girl:
Oh please sweet death,
Embrace me with black fire,
Take me to another place up higher!
There’s no reason for me to live on,
It went all so wrong!

Death:
You little child,
Don’t demand such things from me,
I won’t do you this favour.
It’s not your time to go with me!

Girl:
But please my dear friend,
It should,
No it must end!
Take me with you on the eternal flight,
Give me the kiss,
It is my right!

Death:
You are too young to understand,
The meaning of life and death,
My friend!
I can’t kill people as I please,
I’m not doing this with ease!

Girl:
You have to help me
Or I’ll gamble my soul!

Death:
Young girl,
Don’t make me lose control!
Others plead for their lives,
Stabbed by knifes
Or some shot between the eyes!
Why do you want to die?
Tell me little girl,
Why do you want to make others cry?

Girl:
I don’t have any reason to live,
My life is so hollow,
I want to follow,
LET ME SWALLOW THE PILL,
I know I will…
Go to the place without fear,
Go to the place of my dear!

Death:
Oh what a fool you are,
It was his fate to die in the car!
And it is your destiny to live on,
Even if it all seems wrong.
I understand your pain,
But all attempts are in vain!
Go and live your life on full expense,
Before it ends!

Girl:
It sounds so easy but it isn’t true,
You don’t have human feelings,
You know nothing about what
I had to go through!

Death:
You may be right,
But I won’t take you
On my flight!

Girl:
Angel of darkness why are you so cruel?
Even though you rule,
About life and death.
It’s you who’s got the power
In the
aftermath!

Death:
I’m dealing with the gift of power.
It’s me who says when it is your last hour!
What’s so bad about life anyway?

Girl:
It’s the fact that he couldn’t stay!
It’s the fact of standing up every day,
The fact that I’m breathing whereas he’s away!
It are all those feelings that make me sway!
How can I live while he’s dead?
How can I be happy without going mad?
How can I be glad…?
To live…
I’M LIVING AND HE IS DEAD!!!

Death:
Young poor girl,
There’s still so much you have to learn.
Yearn for him when you feel like it,
Cry all night to get rid of this hit.
Take your time to mourn,
Take your time,
It is no crime.
But there’s one thing,
I have to tell,
Something he told me,
Before his body fell.

He loved you with every fibre of his heart.
He loved the girl you were,
Oh you’ve been so smart!
There was only one wish he had,
Before he flew towards the moon,
Gazing directly into my empty head.

He wanted you to be strong,
He told me that you have to keep on.
He knew there was nothing he could give,
Except of the gift that you’d live.
He wanted you to have a better life,

He simply wanted you,
To stay alive…

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

Hey there, my lovelies!

The last book I read („Radiance“) was a really nice surprise so I thought I’d go for the next round! 😛 I still feel like I’m not doing this often enough but I’m getting there. Especially because my TBR is growing again and I really, really need to reduce it. *lol* The struggle is real my friends!!! >_<

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 – 292, so for instance I’ll pick 29, 105 and 241)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (29 – Snow Like Ashes, 105 – Gold, 241– Dangerous Girls)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Dangerous Girls: I’ve been curious about this one for quite a while and since my Gansey loved it I’m pretty sure I’ll enjoy this too!)

One to kiss and keep, (Snow Like Ashes: I’m not ready to read this young adult fantasy book so I’ll just kiss and keep it. XD)

One to dismiss and weep! (Gold: This paranormal fantasy romance doesn’t sound bad but I’m just not in the right mood to read it right now. Maybe one day it will find its way back on my TBR for now I’ve to say „goodbye“ though. 😉 )

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)

By now it feels like I’m delusional with my hope to reduce my TBR to 375 books. *lol* But I’ll still try my best! XD After this round it are 392 once again. T_T But I just can’t help it! There are just too many great books hitting the shelves soon and of course they all end up on my TBR. It’s one step forward and two steps back. *lol*
