SASSY Saturday

SASSY Saturday

Hey there my lovelies!

Welcome back to the sixth 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

Daredevil

Can we just acknowledge how awesome the third season of Daredevil was? I loved and hated it at the same time. Fisk drove me mental with his mind games but boy did I love them!! *lol* Plus there were new characters that really mixed up things! (And this is an understatement) Matt had to go through a lot and there were quite some moments I was like: „OMG NO!!!“ The fighting scenes: Epic!!! Especially the one at the prison! I’m still in awe of that one! XD So yeah, I followed Matt Murdock’s trail of blood through the entire season. And I regret nothing. ;-P

Julie and the Panthoms

And here’s another series I got addicted to quickly. Julie and the Phantoms is such a great series! It made me laugh, it made me cry, it caused me to pull for Julie and her ghost band and there was so much heart in this series that I melted. XD The songs are all amazing and have a deep meaning and the joy Julie and her band feel when they are on stage? It’s palpable! They have fun and you can see it! Reminds me of my own band days! ❤ Plus for once I actually don’t have a favourite character because damn they are all great in their own way! 😀

A – Author you discovered

Alice Oseman! I know, I know, technically I already knew her, but I never read an actual book she wrote. I’ve been following her comic „Heartstopper“ for years but I never picked up one of her novels. Which I corrected this month. XD I just started to read „Radio Silence“ and I’m already intrigued by the two MCs. Frances and Aled are really two unique characters and I’m pretty sure I’ll get addicted to this pretty fast. 🙂

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Julie and the Phantoms – Wake Up

This was the first song they introduced in the series and I loved it immediately. Julie has such a great voice and the message of the song! Just beautiful! I think I might get the entire soundtrack because damn, the music is amazing! 🙂

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

I’m not gonna lie: 2020 was/and still is one of the worst years I ever had. I mean seriously: 2020 is so hard I could become a sculptor and sell my troubles as art. Aside from Covid-19 there happened so many bad things and some days I just want to stay in my bed and hide under my blanket. It was one of those days – I was at work and felt especially miserable – when one of my new colleagues brought me coffee. It was a small gesture but it was such a nice one and she even knew how I drink my coffee. I almost cried right there and then. Sometimes a little kindness goes a long way. ❤

Y – Your fave blog post of another blogger

Reading Romance While Demisexual @ The Quiet Pond

This was a really great blog post and I enjoyed reading through it! I loved that CW explained how it feels for her to be demi and how insta-love is something she can’t really relate to. And it kind of made me question myself because believe it or not every relationship I ever had started out as a friendship first and then (sometimes over years) developed into something more. I just need to build trust before I can be with someone. Don’t ask me if I’m demi or not, because I seriously don’t know. *lol* All I know is that CW’s post was some sort of thought-provoking impulse. Maybe it will provoke your thoughts too?! XD

Secret Fox Messages

I think it’s finally time to confess something and all the library visitors who borrow books from the Viennese libraries might be surprised now. *lol* I thought it was about time to write it down here though, so here I am, making my “confession”. ;-P

A while ago my library friend and I were sitting at a food court in Vienna and spoke about how funny it is to borrow books from a library because you never know what’s inside of them. Sometimes people forget their bookmark, sometimes they use postcards to mark a certain page and sometimes they just leave their entire list of borrowed books in it… I’m sure you get the idea. So we had a discussion about this and how it’s always interesting to stumble across stuff like that. You just can’t help but wonder who it belonged to and if they are missing their things. XD

It’s always nice to see the traces of fellow bookworms though and a few of those left items actually made us smile. So I came up with a crazy idea. What if I’d leave a little message in at least one of the books I borrowed before I return it to the library? What if I’d just write a little sentence that would make someone smile when she/he stumbles across it? You know, make their reading and their day a little brighter with an unexpected note. =)

Well, I guess by now you all know me well enough to be certain that I actually decided to do this. *lol* So yes, every time I bring back the books I borrowed, I make sure to write at least one bookish quote on a colourful piece of paper (don’t worry, I’d never actually write into the book!!!) and place it between the pages of one of the books.

I don’t know if anyone already found them, I have no idea if it made them smile like I hoped it would or if they wondered who this crazy person was leaving them a note. *lol* But I like to think that it caused them to smile. XD I’ll continue to leave my notes and maybe, just maybe, one day someone will read this here and know it was me who wrote this and will actually smile! You can always hope, right? XD

So, that’s my confession! ;-P If you ever borrow a book from one of the public libraries in Vienna and you find a note with a book quote, “Happy Reading!” and the initials T.S.L.F. you’ll know it was me. *lol*

With this in mind: Happy Reading! ;-P

And just in case I don’t manage to write another blog post before Christmas (after all it’s a busy time with a little child XD) I also want to use this post to wish you all a Merry Christmas!! I hope you spend a wonderful time with your loved ones and get lots of bookish presents! 😀

Take care, my lovelies!!!  ❤ ❤ ❤
