Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Summer 2022 To-Read List

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Books On My Summer 2022 To-Read List – Now this is going to be a fun list because most of those books I borrowed from my library and need to read in time. 😉

1.) „The House in the Cerulean Sea“ by T.J. Klune

45047384. sy475

I’ll finally read this gem in July!!! I’m hosting my first readalong ever and I named it #Klunealong because in July we’ll be reading „The House in the Cerulean Sea“ and in August… well, the voting for this one is still open so I dunno which book we’ll read. *lol* If you’re interested in joining here’s the link to the official blog post I wrote about it: Readalong Announcement: „The House in the Cerulean Sea“ – #Klunealong  My bestie was so kind to make a discord as well so we can chat about our reading process while we read the book! 😉 I’d love it if you’d join, the more the merrier! ❤

2.) „Camp“ by L.C. Rosen

53115194. sx318 sy475

I finally put this book on my TBR for July because I loved „Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts)“ when I read it and I’m sure I’ll enjoy this one as well. 🙂 Also I needed a short book I could read in July aside of „The House in the Cerulean Sea“ because I’m sure I’ll be very busy with hosting my #Klunealong. *lol* I really have no idea what I got myself into. XD

3.) „Rebel“ by Marie Lu

42121526

It’s about time I finish this series! I mean I already read and loved the „Legend“ trilogy but I still haven’t picked up this book. As far as I could tell by the blurb this plays after the main trilogy and is about Day’s brother Eden. I still hope that we’ll get Day and June though because I’m still not okay after reading the ending of the trilogy. I mean… that ending! I can’t let it stand like that! Please Marie Lu, give me something good! I beg you! T_T

4.) „The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue“ by V.E. Schwab

51029834. sy475

This book has been on my TBR ever since it was an ARC and I can’t wait to pick it up! I heard so many great things about it. Funnily enough I also heard a couple of negative reviews by now, so I’m very curious if it will live up to my expectations. The premise sounds way too good though and since I loved all of Schwab’s books so far I’m pretty sure I’ll enjoy this one too. I guess the only way to find out it by reading it. 😉

5.) „Darius the Great Is Not Okay“ by Adib Khorram

37506437

I recently found this in my library and instantly snatched it from the shelf! *lol* I heard so many great things about Adib Khorram and since he recently released „Kiss & Tell“ I thought it’s about time I pick up one of his books and start reading! XD He might actually become one of my new fave authors if I end up loving his books so fingers crossed my prediction will come true! Very curious if this is going to be great! (yeah, that was a subtle pun. ;-P)

6.) „A Very Large Expanse of Sea“ by Tahereh Mafi

38720939. sy475

So far the only books I know by Tahereh Mafi are her „Shatter Me“ books and I absolutely loved the original trilogy. (Book 4 and 5 were okay, but book 6… let’s just say it so didn’t work for me! >_< ) Anyway! I still love the original trilogy so I’m ready to find out how Mafi’s writing style is going to work in a completely different setting. This sounds really intriguing and I’m ready to dive into it! =)

7.) „The Kingdom of Back“ by Marie Lu

45872054. sy475

I gotta be honest with you: I had no idea Marie Lu even wrote this book! *lol* I read so many Marie Lu books already and loved every single one of them („Legend series“, „Batman“, „The Young Elites“, „Warcross“, you name it!) but for some reason I never heard of this one until I found it in my library. Needless to say I had to take it with me! Especially because this seems to be about Mozart’s sister Nannerl and as someone who was born and raised in Austria this is just too interesting not to pick it up! I am intrigued! XD

8.) „Legendborn“ by Tracy Deonn

55507414. sy475

There was a time when this book was all over my feed and I couldn’t escape it so I got really curious and wanted to read „Legendborn“ as well. Thankfully my library finally got a copy of it and I went for it as soon as I found out. (Sorry to everyone who wanted to preorder it, I was really fast. ;-P) As far as I could gather from a couple of reviews this is some sort of arthurian retelling and I always dig them so yep, I’m sure I’ll enjoy this one too.

9.) „Nick and Charlie“ by Alice Oseman

56951957. sy475

This is probably one of the few books of Alice Oseman I still haven’t read. I mean I read almost all of her books by now and I just love them so damn much! (I still hope to get my hands on one of those amazing book cases that has all the books in it. XD I’m sure it will happen one day!) I’m kinda worried about picking this one up though because it’s about Nick and Charlie going seperate ways and I just don’t want them to. *lol* I only want them to be happy and I dunno if I’ll get this in here so yeah… I guess I’ll just have to read it to find out. Please have mercy, Alice!

10.) „Call Down the Hawk“ by Maggie Stiefvater

31373184

So technically I already started to read the first chapter of this book and I’m once again blown away by Maggie’s writing style. I forgot how much I love her lyrical and magical approach of things. ❤ Ahhh! Honestly I could have marked about a million quotes in the prologue alone! I know I’m going to love this and I’m so ready to dive even deeper into the book! I’m going to cherish every single word. =)

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which books are on your summer TBR? Did you read any of the books on my list or do we have some in common? Does it always take you so long to pick up anticipated books as well? Do you borrow books from your library or do you buy them? And the most important question of them all: Do you want to participate in my #Klunealong?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Was SO EXCITED to Get, but Still Haven’t Read

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: : Books I Was SO EXCITED to Get, but Still Haven’t Read (bonus points if you tell us how long it’s been since you got them!) Haha! That’s like the perfect TTT topic for me. Oh boy, I’m going to call myself out now. XD

1.) „Wayward Son“ by Rainbow Rowell

44017627

I wanted to read this book ever since I knew it would come out and I bought it when it came out. So in 2019 I think. *lol* I have no idea why I still haven’t read it but I guess I can only blame it on me procrastinating big time. Because I love „Carry On“ so much and I’m kinda afraid it won’t live up to my expectations? But I really should read it because by now I even have „Any Way the Wind Blows“ and I want to know what all the fuss is about. XD

2.) „Queen of Air and Darkness“ by Cassandra Clare

13541056. sy475

I honestly don’t know what’s wrong with me but I wanted to read this book ever since I finished „Lord of Shadows“. I love Cassandra Clare as an author as well but somehow I still haven’t read this. I think once again I’m afraid of all the feels that will kill me once I open this. Especially after the ending of the second book. But I promised Catherine to read it this year and I’m planning to keep my promise so by the end of 2022 this will be read. 😉

3.) „Aristotle and Dante Dive into the Waters of the World“ by Benjamin Alire Saenz

56980548

I got this ARC in October 2021 I think and I’m ashamed to admit that I still haven’t read this one. >_< I’m always waiting for the right time to pick it up and with all the stress at my work and private life it never felt like the right time to read it. BUT I will read it this year and I’m sure I’ll love it as well. =)

4.) „Call Down the Hawk“ by Maggie Stiefvater

31373184

I can’t believe that I put this on my TBR in 2017 and that I have it at home now but still haven’t read „Call Down the Hawk“!!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!? There’s Ronan Lynch and Adam Parrish in this book!!! How come I still haven’t read this?! I’m kinda mad at myself now. *lol* But I’m also kinda scared to pick it up because ADKFASKDFAS „The Raven Cycle“ was so good and I want it to be at least as good, if that makes sense?

5.) „The Magicians“ by Lev Grossman

6101718

Okay, I think this is one of the series that’s been on my TBR for the longest. I put it on there after watching the tv series in 2015 so yeah. It’s been 7 years and I still haven’t read a single letter of this series. *lol* I’m horrible and this post definitely makes me realize how long it actually takes me to read the books I want to read. >_<

6.) „The Nobleman’s Guide to Scandal and Shipwrecks“ by Mackenzi Lee

52934919. sx318 sy475

I first wrote about this book in October 2019 and back then I couldn’t wait to read it. Oh well, guess what? It’s still on my TBR and I still haven’t read it. *lol* Honestly, why am I like this? Still, I will read this book because I need to know how Percy, Monty and Felicity are doing. 😉 And I need to find out if Adrian is a nice guy. All good reasons to pick this up! 😉

7.) „The Fascinators“ by Andrew Eliopulos

48552059. sy475

„How am I supposed to keep my fingers away from this when they have the audacity to mention „The Raven Boys“ and „Simon vs.“ in one sentence?!? The answer is: I’m not supposed to! *lol*
This book goes straight to my TBR and I really hope that it will be able to keep its promise!“

That’s what I wrote about this book in September 2019! *lol* Oh boy, it’s been on my TBR for ages and I clearly need to change that!

8.) „The Voyages of Trueblood Cay“ by Suanne Laqueur

43594543. sy475

I put this on my TBR in 2020 and it’s about time I read it! I mean after I finished „An Exaltation of Larks“ I immediately wanted to read Suanne’s book but life got in my way again and again and I really feel like I need to read this soon! Maybe I should put some of those books on my 2023 TBR so that they will finally be read?! >_<

9.) „Devil’s Cut“ by J.R. Ward

31298946. sy475

Honestly!! I can’t believe it’s been over 5 years and I still don’t know how this trilogy ends!!! I was so ready to dive into the last book in 2017 and then there were so many new releases and now it’s been 5 years and I still don’t know how this series ends!! OMG! AHHH! Why??! Okay, this just has to go straight to my 2023 TBR! I can’t with myself! *lol*

10.) „The Wrath and the Dawn“ by Renee Ahdieh

18798983

So this is definitely one of the books that has been on my TBR the longest. I added it in 2017 when I joined goodreads and it’s been sitting on my TBR ever since. T_T Seriously, shame on me! This is such a beloved book and I can’t believe I still haven’t picked it up. Yep, this is so going on my 2023 TBR as well. *lol*

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which books have been on your TBR for ages and which book were you super excited about but still haven’t read? Did you read any of the books on my list? Which book has been on your TBR for the longest? And what’s keeping you from reading the books you were so excited about? Are you procrastinating too? XD

Talk to me and let me know!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Spring 2022 TBR

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: : Books On My Spring 2022 TBR

1.) Pet – Akwaeke Emezi

43568395

I have absolutely no idea what this book is about but it made it on my March TBR because apparently it has a LGBTQ+ rep and a lot of my favourite bloggers loved it. =) I’m always ready to find new and interesting books and the blurb sounds very mysterious so here I am.

2.) The Silvered Serpents – Roshani Chokshi

52796733. sy475

I’ve been dying to read „The Silvered Serpents“ after I finished „The Gilded Wolves“ and even went as far as to make a NetGalley account in order to request an ARC. Unfortunately my request was denied and I was very heartbroken about it. After about two years I finally bought the book though and I’m so ready to dive into it! My precious babies are waiting for me! ❤

3.) Blue Flag – Kaito

51086632. sx318 sy475

This sounds super interesting and I can’t remember the last time I ever read a LGBTQAI+ manga! I mean apparently there is a love quadrangle and probably some m/f, f/f and m/m action in here?! Honestly, I don’t need more than that! I’m sure I’ll love this! =)

4.) Almond – Won-pyung Sohn

55338962

I started to read this for my #Koreadathon participation and I’m really enjoying it. Katja – one of my favourite BookTubers – and I decided to read this for the „read a book recommended by a Korean celebrity“ prompt, because RM as well as SUGA from BTS read this in their show „In the Soop“! I’m halfway into the book right now and it’s very good so far.

5.) Spinning Silver – Naomi Novik

42941939. sy475

I’ve heard people rave about this book for ages and got curious enough to finally pick it up! *lol* Also this is a Rumpelstiltskin retelling and I love my Rumpelstiltskin! XD I only managed to read about 10% so far, but the little I read has me intrigued and I can’t wait to see where this story will head.

6.) The Final Empire – Brandon Sanderson

21462006

And here comes another beloved series! Everyone is talking about Brandon Sanderson and after four years of people constantly raving about him I finally decided to give his books a try. I mean this is high fantasy so it will probably take a while to get used to the world building. It’s been ages I fell for a fantasy world though so I’m kinda ready to be swept off my feet! Brando Sando do your worst! 😉

7.) Children of Virtue and Vengeance – Tomi Adeyemi

40106539. sy475

I think I read „Children of Blood and Bone“ about two years ago and enjoyed it. There were some weaknesses but the story was still interesting enough for me to want to know how it continues. Plus I want to know if my ship will sail. XD I doubt it, but oh well, you can always hope right?

8.) Sorcery of Thorns – Margaret Rogerson

43279080. sy475

I only just started with this book but I’m already finished! Yeah, I read this like nobody’s business and I regret NOTHING! Oh, well, okay there is something I regret: That there is no second book!!! Like seriously!!?? How can this be a standalone!? Why is there no book two?? I loved absolutely everything about this book and I need more! Forever heartbroken that this isn’t a series! T_T

9.) The Fever King – Victoria Lee

39897058

This book has been on my TBR for ages and I finally preordered it at my library! Magic, two boys that are rivals but fall for each other, high stakes, a tragic background story and a viral magic outbreak? Do I even need to say more? This sounds like it will be right up my alley and I can’t wait to dive into it once it arrives! =)

10.) Empire of the Vampire – Jay Kristoff

43728380. sy475

I wanted to read this ever since I first read Jay Kristoff’s review about it. *lol* Jay definitely has a way with words and everything he spoke about in his review screamed „READ ME“! XD Also am I the only one who loves the fact that the title rhymes? I mean „Empire of the Vampire“! The title alone is brilliant. Not to mention the amazing cover art! AHHH! I’m so going for this one in spring! ❤

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which books do you want to read in spring? Do we have some in common and if yes, which ones? Did you read any of the books on my list and did you enjoy them? Are you taking part in some of the many amazing readathons out there? Did you know that the #Koreadathon exists and did you ever take part in one?

Talk to me and let me know!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Winter 2021 To-read List

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: : Books on My Winter 2021 To-read List (or summer if you’re in the southern hemisphere) Okay, so I decided I’ll mostly go with the books I’m currently reading because *lol* I want to finish them all either before the year is over or during winter! So wish me luck! I’ll need it. *lol* T_T

1.) The Gravity of Us – Phil Stamper

48731486

I’m currently about 24% into the book and I alreadly like Cal! I have no idea where „The Gravity Of Us“ is heading but I’m very intrigued by the concept of a Mars mission and hidden secrets that shouldn’t be exposed into the light of day. Also a m/m love story! I’m always here for a good LGBTQAI+ content. 😉

2.) Mexican Gothic – Silvia Moreno-Garcia

53152636. sy475

I was supposed to read this in October but then my library had troubles to get it in time and in the end I borrowed it in the middle of November and only started to read it at the end of it. I recently watched „Crimson Peak“ and the old house and the mystery surrounding it kinda reminds me of the movie. I guess we’ll have to see where this is going. So far I’m 23% in and I didn’t get scared… yet. *lol*

3.) A Court of Silver Flames – Sarah J. Maas

57127171

My reading buddies (Hello Jello & Kaitlyn!!) and I are sooo close to finishing this!! We’ve made it to 83% and I really hope we’ll be able to finish ACOSF during the winter holidays. We started to read this in April but life always seems to get in our way. >_< Still, we’ve come so far we’ll read the rest too. =)

4.) Now I Rise – Kiersten White

32682137

Yes, this is also on my currently read. And yes I have way too many books on my currently read. I’m aware of that. *LOL* But argh! I was in a reading slump and instead of sitting it out and waiting for it to be over I tried to fight it by starting new books and now I have the salad. XD Still, I really like this so far, but I’m very worried about my babies Radu and Lada. Guess only time will tell if they’ll finally find their happiness.

5.) Rule of Wolves – Leigh Bardugo

54589790

I’m sure you already guessed it: Yep, it’s on my current list too. T_T (Someone send help! Please! *lol*) This said I’m kinda undecided whether I like the direction in which this is heading or not. There doesn’t seem to be all too much of a plot but the characters most definitely make up for it. XD Can’t wait to see if my Zolai ship will sail. ❤ I really hope it will even though I have no idea how!

6.) A Small Hotel – Suanne Laqueur

58597304. sy475

I am still reading this! *mental breakdown* Why am I such a horrible reader?! I was supposed to finish this in September but you know…. life! >_< I love Suanne’s books but my reading slump was horrible and I just couldn’t read „A Small Hotel“ because I knew I wouldn’t be able to give it all the attention it deserves. Still, I’ll finish it before the year is over! You have my word on this, Suanne! Promise and pinky swear!

7.) The House of Hades – Rick Riordan

23362116

And here comes the last book on my currently reading! „The House of Hades“! You know you’re in a really terrible reading slump when you can’t even read one of Uncle Rick’s books! *lol* Guess that’s what I learned the hard way those last couple of months! T_T I’m so ready to dive into this book now that my slump is over though so my precious sons Nico and Percy here I come! ❤

8.) Girls of Paper And Fire – Natasha Noan

34433755

In My December TBR video on BookTube I asked you which should be the third book I read in December and in the end „Girls of Paper and Fire“ made it on my TBR! So I’m totally ready to tackle this over the Christmas holidays because I’ve been dying to read this f/f fantasy book for ages!! (Don’t ask me why it always takes me so long to get to books! I dunno! *lol*)

9.) The Final Empire – Brandon Sanderson

12968705

„The Final Empire“ also made it on my winter TBR and since I’ve never ever read a single Brandon Sanderson book before I’m totally ready to find out what all the hustle and bustle is about! I’ve been told that this is a good start to read Sanderson’s books so I hope I’ll love it as much as all the other people who read this series before me.

10.) Frankly In Love – David Yoon

50690074

This doesn’t only have a fake dating trope but is also about Korean culture and when I found it in my library I just couldn’t resist to borrow it. I’m very curious if this is as good as it sounds and I guess the only way to find out is by actually reading the book, so this is definitely on my winter TBR too. =)

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which kind of books landed on your winter TBR and do we have some in common? Did you already read some of the ones that are on my list and if yes, did you like them? Did you ever fall into a horrible reading slump like mine and how did you get out of it? (Most definitely not by adding even more books to your list, I bet. I kinda dug my own grave there. RIP V.! *lol*)

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wish I Could Read Again for the First Time

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Books I Wish I Could Read Again for the First Time (Oh where to start?! *lol*)

1.) „Harry Potter“ series by J.K. Rowling

22844191. sy475

Ahh to be 11 years old and to discover Harry Potter all over again. It would be so amazing to read this series for the very first time. Especially because now I could read all seven books without having to wait for the next instalment. I swear the wait for the next book was always so excruciating. Alone for that I envy everyone who is just discovering the series and reading it for the very first time. *lol*

2.) „The Raven Cycle“ Series by Maggie Stiefvater

17347389 I just love, love, love, love and once again love this series!!! It has my heart and my soul and I will never get tired of speaking about „The Raven Cycle“. I just love all the four raven boys and Blue to bits and pieces! So yes, to discover this series all over again would be so amazing! To feel all the feels for the very first time. Ahh! I can’t! XD I’d so love to experience it all over again. ❤

3.) „All for the Game“ Series by Nora Sakavic

17259690 I just finished the second book „The Raven King“ and I’m already at the point where I say that I would like to read it for the very first time. I guess that says enough about how great this series is and also about how addicted I got to it. *lol* I can’t believe I’m so invested in the Foxes but ARGH!!! Andrew Minyard and Neil Josten are my precious babies and I just want to hug them and wrap them into a cozy and warm blanket! I don’t know what it is about this series but I AM HOOKED!

4.) „Venery“ Series by Suanne Laqueur

36285077. sx318 When I stumbled upon Suanne’s series I never thought I would get so attached to it. Like OMG! This series totally blew me away and Javier Landes, Alex Penda and Steffen Finch will always have a special place in my heart! Needless to say I would love to read this series all over again. Suanne’s writing style is so damn amazing! If you don’t know her books already: Do yourself a favour and read this series for the very first time! And don’t forget to tell me, because I want to relive it vicariously through you. ;-P

5.) Basically all of Rick Riordan’s books I already read! *lol*

28187 I only discovered Uncle Ricks books about 2 years or so ago, but by now I read almost all of them and I enjoyed them immensely! So believe me when I say that I would love to read every single one of them for the very first time. Percy, Nico, Annabeth, Hazel, Leo and basically everyone in this series is so precious! ❤

6.) „The Song of Achilles“ by Madeline Miller

13516154 Okay, I probably would die all over again if I would read this for the very first time but quite honestly: It would be so worth it! I would gladly cry my eyes out if I could experience this for the very first time again. XD Masochistic much? Yes, but this book is a masterpiece and if you haven’t read it yet: What are you waiting for?! Patroclus and Achilles! T_T I’m crying once again. So beautiful and bittersweet!

7.) „The Name of the Wind“ by Patrick Rothfuss

186074 And here comes another masterpiece that I loved more than I thought I would. Kvothe is basically my kryptonite. A broken boy that is intelligent, a musician and to top it all off even a redhead! *lol* It’s like Patrick Rothfuss just wanted to see how hard I could fall for a fictional character. Well, Patrick you succeeded, I’d love to fall in love with Kvothe and his story all over again. XD

8.) „Carry On“ by Rainbow Rowell

32768522 Simon and Baz!! Baz and Simon!!! Oh gods, to see them fall in love for the very first time! I had so much fun reading this and „Carry On“ is still a book I love to get back to every once in a while. I already said it and I’ll say it once again: I fall asleep cuddling this book! *lol* It’s such a comfort read and to think of those two always makes me happy! =)) They are definitely one of my favourite m/m OTPs and I’ll probably recommend this book until the day I die. 😉

9.) „Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda“ by Becky Abertalli

19547856 I remember reading this for the very first time and not being able to put it down. I wanted to read this slowly and I had every intention to take notes when I read it. But the book obviously had other plans because I just couldn’t stop reading! Before I even knew it I was already halfway through the book and just wanted to know how Simon’s story ends. And of course if he gets the man! *lol* Also Simon is so damn relatable!! Love this boy so much! ❤

10.) „Shatter Me“ Trilogy by Tahereh Mafi

13455782 Mhmm… *deep sigh* To fall in love with Aaron Warner for the very first time! To discover Tahereh Mafi’s beautiful writing style all over again. This would be amazing! I was in love the moment I started to read this book and I think this will never change. Everyone who’s able to read this series for the very first time is very lucky, indeed!

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which books would you love to read for the very first time and do we have some in common? Can you recommend me some books that would be amazing to read? And if yes do you want to relive them vicariously through me? *lol*

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday: Places In Books I’d Love to Live

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Places In Books I’d Love to Live

Ahh what an amazing topic!!! ❤ This is going to be fun!

1.) Hogwarts – Harry Potter

So teuer ist das erste Schuljahr in Hogwarts

Okay, but honestly who wouldn’t want to live in Hogwarts? *lol* I’m still waiting for my letter, because this is THE SCHOOL for me! All the magic and the fact that this castle always changes, not to mention that they teach magic in there! I SO want to live in one of those Gryffindor dorm rooms and I want to eat the amazing food! ❤

2.) Velaris – A Court of Thorns and Roses

I think everyone who read ACOTAR fell in love with this city! It sounds so beautiful and great, I’d love to wander through the streets and to eat in one of all those intriguing restaurants. The fact that it’s at the sea and apparently has a warm climate only makes this even more appealing! Hey Lucien, can I move into that apartment with you? *lol*

3.) Cabeswater/Monmouth Manufacturing/The Barns – The Raven Cycle

LIVIN' LIKE A PLAYER — YA LIT MEME: Six Places. ↳ THE RAVEN CYCLE;...

Is there a more magical and enchanting place than Cabeswater? I don’t think so! It sounds like such a great place to be and to be honest I wouldn’t mind staying at any of the many places that are mentioned in „The Raven Cycle“. No matter if it’s Monmouth Manufacturing (who wouldn’t want to live in an old factory building and be roomies with the Raven Boys?), The Barns (gosh all the awesome things Ronan created!!!) or 300 Fox Way (Blue’s funny and crazy psychic family!) all those locations would be amazing! ❤

4.) The London Insitute – Shadowhunter Series

I love London and I’m a huge fan of the Shadowhunter Series. 😀 So there are already two good reasons why I’d want to live in the London Institute.  😉 Aside from that it’s also a place with a lot of history and charm. Also let’s not forget that Tessa, Will and Jem and all their friends and their entire family lived there. Just to be able to pick up one of Wills old books with his handwritten notes in it would already be so satisfying. *lol*

5.) The Harbour – The Starless Sea

I’m afraid Erin Morgenstern ruined me with her books! *lol* The mere idea of „The Harbour“ is such a great one that I wish I could actually live there. I mean seriously! It was basically described as some sort of subwaystation with millions of books and thousands of different rooms that all lead somewhere! You never know where you’ll get once you open one of those doors and a curious fox like me probably could get lost in there. Also the cozy atmosphere! Lots of cats and a fireplace! Ahh where is my door to the harbour? XD

6.) Jav & Stef’s flat – A Charm of Finches

This is a totally selfish choice because I love Jav and Stef and their home sounded so warm and comfortable! If I’d be friends with them I’d just crash on their couch and watch those two lovebirds being all sweet while they cook dinner! *lol* And well, of course I’d eat dinner with them too because I’m sure it would be delicous! XD

7.) The Night Circus

And here we go with another Erin Morgenstern book! 😉 The Night Circus was such a great book and I was totally mesmerized by its beauty. The details Erin wrote out for every single tent and it’s purpose, the magic of a wandering circus, the sweets and all the excitement. Ahh to be a part of this and to live with the circus would be so amazing! 😀

8.) Elfhame – The Folk of the Air

I suppose this choice is purely based on homesickness. *lol* But I AM a faerie after all and Elfhame is sort of … well, my home. ;-P I miss those islands and the green hill. And of course I miss Jude and Cardan. XD It’s about time I read the last book! Anyway! Revels, dancing, eating, cavorting, flirting, being in the company of beautiful faeries, trying not to fall for a bargain you’ll regret, watching your back so no one will stab you… Ahh, home sweet home! What’s not to love? *lol*

9.) Camp Half-Blood – Percy Jackson

After reading so many Percy Jackson books I can say that to live at Camp Half-Blood sounds like fun. XD I have no idea in which cabin I’d be sorted but as long as I’d be with my half-siblings it would be okay. 😀 To sit around the campfire at night and to sing songs like „This Land is Mino’s Land“ sounds like a good time, especially after a long day that was full of capture the flag. *lol*

10.) Skarmouth – The Scorpio Races

Okay, admittedly for most people this island wouldn’t be appealing but for me it somehow is? I dunno why, but Maggie Stiefvater wrote this place so well that I could feel the cold wind on my skin and smell the salty ocean breeze! The most interesting thing about Skarmouth are the water horses though! Such beautiful, powerful and frightenting creatures! ❤ I’d love to live on that island just to see them!

Rankenzeile

Did you read any of the books I mentioned and did you fall in love with those places too? At which bookish places would you love to live and why? Do we have some in common? Is there a bookish place I should definitely read about?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always try to stay healthy and safe!
