Book Club – February

2

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 “Book Club – February”

My Travels of 2016

wolf-hound-1

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 “My Travels of 2016”

2017 Reading Challenge

reading-challenge

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 “2017 Reading Challenge”

It’s a new year, but the Book Club continues.

My Top 10 Books of 2016

2016.png

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!

Weekend in New York

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 “Weekend in New York”

Book Discussion: Illuminae

november

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 “Book Discussion: Illuminae”

Book Discussion: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Hello fellow readers!

So…… I’m afraid my reading slump is swallowing me whole. I keep starting books that I don’t finish and I HATE MYSELF for it but my mind is everywhere lately with a couple of writing projects I’m really excited about and I felt like sharing this.

That being said.

I did finish the book of the month (of course I did, what did you think? That I was a coward? NO! I read it in like two days) and I’m really excited to talk about it with you! So let’s start this!

5 Reflections + Quotes on Travel

The Bosnian Pyramids

 

5 of my Reflections

When I don’t like the girl that I am, I catch a plane and leave her behind. Not once have I come back from a trip the same as when I left.

 

 

Travelling is discovering new things, but also reminiscing about old dreams, and realizing they still matter.
