I try to make as many trips as I can through a year, but sadly, it’s hard to save up enough money to achieve ALL of my dreams (I have quite a few). That’s why last year wasn’t that wild in the travel department. This year isn’t going to be a whole year around the globe either (though I’m glad to announce I did find someone crazy enough to follow me in a future one), but at least a summer through Canada.
And Canada is a big country, to say the least.
Here’s where I plan to go.

February 8th: Book Trends You’re Tired Of
What are some things you are tired of seeing that are trends in publishing? Maybe something that pops up on a lot of covers these days, or the popularity of certain tropes in a particular genre? Let it out!
If you want to join me, the rules are simple: I announce the book we’ll be reading on the 1st day of each month and we start sharing our impressions of it in a new post that I’ll publish on the 20th. (Sometimes the 21st because I’m a wild and untamed procrastinator.) (If you want to make a review of the book on your blog feel free to link it in the comments on the 20th so we can all share and talk books and love life and be awesome.) (For more info, click here.)
Now comes the time to announce the book of February! Continue reading
Oh my god the feels.
I’m ready. Continue reading
You’ll have noticed, 2016 wasn’t a big travel year for me. I worked and studied a lot, and I sure crave and plan for 2017 to be ALL about travelling, but that’s not what this post is about. This is about the few trips I found the time to make last year, usually not too far from home, but nothing short of amazing. Continue reading
2016 did not go as well as I’d hoped. Most of the TBR on my list remain unread, and I only read about 40 books in total. Overall, it was a good year anyway, because I read some REALLY great books, which you can have a peek at over here.
But 2016 is behind. Let’s focus on the year ahead! I have three goals for 2017. Continue reading
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
I wish you all a wonderful year, full of travels and books. (At least, those are my plans for 2017.)
It’s a new year, but the Book Club continues.

2016 flew by, and I unfortunately didn’t read as many books as I had hoped. On the bright side, I did read a LOT of great books, and let me tell you sitting down to pick only ten of them was no piece of cake.
Some of them I read during my online Book Club, some are sequels to series I started in 2015 (or 2016). Anyway, here they are:
I’m late, I’m late! I know I’m late; life is a little bit crazy lately, but I actually finished the The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian in the first days of December. It took me only two days to finish it; a great read!
As some of you may know, my sister and I won a free trip to New York in November, and I made this very elaborate list of things to do in the Big Apple but there’s just SO MUCH things to do in this amazing city, one weekend wasn’t enough. Still, here’s what I managed to do. Continue reading
How is it December already people? Seriously, HOW?
I hope you all had a great November month, I sure had fun in New York and I can’t wait to post about it! But for now let’s focus on the matter at hand: YA BOOKS!

My, oh my, I was NOT ready for this.
So there’s an interstellar war, a deadly virus outbreak, a stressful countdown, a control-freak computer messing up everything, and two in-love teenagers trying to find each other back through this whole mess. That’s Illuminae, by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman. Continue reading
So, I have an awesome sister who won an awesome trip to awesome New York and made the awesome decision to add awesome ME as her awesome plus one. ISN’T THAT AWESOME?
Hello fellow readers!
Halloween is behind us: let’s get ready for Christmas!
Or at least the read of November, for now.
