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

You’re Beautiful: Okay this k-drama is definitely very unknown because I never heard of it until it popped up on my Netflix feed. *lol* But boy was it good!! I was buddy watching this with the Yoongi to my V once again and we both loved it so much. (Honestly it was so funny we laughed tears.) It’s about a girl that has a twin brother named Ko Mi-nam who’s an idol and his manager is desperate and convinces her to pose as her brother because Mi-nam has gone abroad in order to get surgery. So yeah, of course she says yes and suddenly finds herself in the k-pop bands apartment and is forced to pose as her brother for weeks. *lol* I guess you can already imagine all the trouble she gets into while she’s posing as her brother and if you know anything about k-pop idols you know they are all gorgeous and sweet. So yeah, being a girl among them… *flame and hearty eyes emoji* *LOL*

Heartstopper: I won’t say a lot about „Heartstopper“ in here because I basically binge watched the entire series in a week (Yes, as a parent that’s binging for you. *lol*) and wrote an entire blog post about it! Yes, it was me raving about the series non-stop and if you’ve missed the blog post here’s the link: „Heartstopper“ TV series: I legit smiled through my tears! T_T Enjoy! ;-P

A – Author you discovered

32855079. sy475

L. Philips – Sometime After Midnight

I legit only read 3 books last month and it’s a miracle but I actually haven’t read any of the authors before. *lol* So I’m kinda spoilt for choice but I’ll just pick the book that got the most paws from me and that was „Sometime After Midnight“! It’s about two boys that come from totally different backgrounds and meet one night at a concert, but before anything happens the boy in the converse runs away and Cameron is left with a picture of his shoes. *lol* So yep, it started out as some sort of Cinderella retelling but it turned into so, so, so much more! Honestly I will write a long review about this because it deserves it! ❤

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Jimin & Ha Sungwoon – With You

I swear as ARMY you never have a quiet minute! *lol* Especially not when our boys prepare for a comeback in June! First Jimin & Ha Sungwoon’s OST came out and only a couple of days later SUGA released his „That That“ with Psy. *lol* Since I’ll probably listen to „That That“ all of May and will feature it in my next SASSY Saturday I decided to go with Jimin’s OST this month. XD It’s really so good and his lovely voice gets a chance to shine. =) It’s very calming and I love to listen to it on the train.

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

Haha! There were so many things that caught me off guard in April. In good and bad ways I may add. *lol* The super bad surprise was that my hubby actually got Covid right before Easter and our Easter holidays were spent in quarantine. >_< My hubby had to stay at home for 10 days and my kid was at home too because she could have infected other kids at the kindergarten and I was the only one that was allowed to go out and do grocery shopping etc. So uff. It was a busy time. XD Plus even more busy because at the beginning of April I decided to go on an educational sabbatical for a year and I had to organize everything at work and in my freetime. But hey, it has to get better now, right? *lol*

Y – Your fave blog post of another blogger

BTS (Bangtan Boys): J-Hope @ BooksWithNatasa

I really like this series on Natasa’s blog and even though I’ve been ARMY for years I still find out new things about our boys! ❤ I love that she gives all of them a moment to shine and it’s always fun to read her posts! =) If you don’t know her blog yet and are ARMY as well you need to check it out. Also she posts a lot about books as well so as a reader you can’t go wrong either! *lol* 😉 I think what I want to say is: Go to Natasa’s blog! XD


What do you think about „SASSY Saturday“? Would you like to join the fun? Have you watched „Heartstopper“ too and what did you think about it? Who is your fave character from the show? Did you have to go through quarantine as well and how is the current Covid situation in your country? (Over here it’s slowly getting better) And which new author did you discover last month?

Talk to me and let me know! 😉

And as always, stay healthy and safe!

April Wrap-Up

Wrap Up

April was… busy! Honestly if I already thought that I didn’t read a lot in February the same could be said about April. Of course I had my reasons for not reading all too much and now that it’s official I can also write it in here and don’t have to beat about the bush like I did in my last wrap up. I don’t know if you guys follow my BookTube Channel as well but if you did you already heard about my life updates. If not you’ll read it now. 😉

After working for many years at the same company I decided to go on an educational sabbatical for a year. There were plenty of reasons that caused me to rethink my current work life and over those last couple of months it became more and more clear that it couldn’t go on like that. I wasn’t happy anymore and I was constantly stressed which took a toll on my health and caused my private life to suffer as well. So I kinda pulled the rip cord and decided to go for an educational sabbatical instead. I’m really looking forward to go back to studying and I’m sure that this year is exactly what I need right now. I want to broaden my horizon and do something I really want to do! I’ll take all my energy to set up a second line of business and I hope it will help me to go down a different career path. 😉

I mean I’m too young to spend even more years in a job I don’t like. I’ll have to work at least 30 years more until I can retire (if I ever retire *lol*) and that’s way too long to do a job that’s not my cup of tea. XD So yeah, to initiate all those changes took a lot of time and energy and then my hubby ended up having Covid which cost me another 10 days of quarantine in which I had to do everything. I’m vaccinated thrice so I basically had to do everything from buying groceries to getting rid of the trash, cooking and taking care of my kid etc. It was… busy. *lol*. So yep, that was my April and I guess no one is surprised that I didn’t get a lot of reading done. Haha! On this happy note let’s jump right into my wrap up, shall we?!

Books read: 3 (3 books & 0 webcomic, I won’t even say anything about the fact that I only read 3 books. >_<)

Pages read: 1.085 (This is actually more pages than I thought I would have read. XD)

Average rating: 4,17 (I rarely had months in which my ratings varied so much)

Books that were on my reading list: 0 ( 0 from 2019, 0 from 2020 and 1 from 2021. One of those 3 books was actually from my TBR so yay! I’ll take my victories where I can get them. *lol*)

Pet: 4 Pfoten

This book was a real surprise and I don’t know how to describe it. I think it kind of reminded me of „A Monster Calls“. I mean it tackled serious topics but with the help of a monster that made it easier to address them?! Anyway! I really enjoyed this book and even though I was so busy it kept me engaged and I wanted to know what would happen next so that’s definitely a good thing. If you want to read my full review you can do it: here!

Gideon the Ninth: 3 Pfoten,5

I enjoyed the book but it was so confusing? *lol* There were so many different names which made it hard to get into the story and sometimes I didn’t really get what the author wanted to tell the reader? Despite all that I ended up enjoying the book though and gave it 3,5 paws rounded up to 4 stars on goodreads. I wrote a long and more elaborate review about „Gideon the Ninth“ on my blog so if you want to read it just follow the link!

Sometime After Midnight: 5 Pfoten

I felt like I needed to read something fluffy and nice to get back into reading and when I picked this book up I totally didn’t expect to end up loving it so much, but boy this book!!!! AHADKFASLKDFSADF! I loved this story so much! And not because of the romance but because of the music aspect which was quite the surprise! This was amazing and if you love music and the chemistry between two musicians you should definitely pick it up! I’ll write a full review on this hidden and unkown gem once I have more time so be prepared to hear more about it! ❤


This said: How was your April? Was it a great reading month for you and if yes how many books did you manage to read? (Hopefully way more than I did. *lol*) What was your favourite book last month and did you read any of the books I read? Have you ever gone on an educational sabbatical and if yes what did you study?

Talk to me and let me know! 😉

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe!
