December – Question of the days

I always use QOTD on my Bookstagram so I have something to talk about. But it’s always a struggle to come up with fun questions.

August wrap up and September TBR – 2020

I’m so proud of all the books I read this month that I wanted to share them with you. I read a lot of graphic novels, but I also finished a book that I started in Dec 2018… Place your guesses which book that was… WOOPS. If you want to see any full reviews on these, make sure to check my goodreads as I don’t post all my reviews as separate blogposts!

So without further ado, here are the books I read last month with the star rating that I gave them!

Exploring Graphic Novels

If there is a genre that intrigues me then it must be Graphic novels. In graphic novels there’s a power of two, the story itself and the art style. If these two work together well enough you get a whole different type of storytelling that can be even better than just the written story. I made myself the challenge to read more graphic novels to get a grasp of what I like within this genre. And I mean, isn’t it always fun to try out new things!

So let me share the books that I already picked out and read and which ones are still on my to read list!

Reading to Relax

As some followers might know, or anyone checking the dates on my posts here and on instagram, I’m not as active as I used to be. In 2018, the months that I actively blogged, reviewed and participated in bookstagram challenges, reading slowly became more than relaxing. It became a hobby that sometimes became more of a have to than a want to. This made me lose the joy in reading for a while. Every time I started reading again I felt wrong for not reviewing, making pictures or writing on my blog.

It took a lot of practice but I’m back to finding reading a relaxing thing. As I did genuinely enjoyed blogging I’m trying to get back into it. But on my terms. That’s why I made this little list to ensure blogging will keep being fun!

  1. No reading shame. It doesn’t matter if I read just one book in a month or 20 graphic novels. Numbers don’t matter as long as I enjoy them!
  2. Reviews when I want to. If I want to review a book then I will, but if I have nothing interesting to say you won’t get a review
  3. Weeks no blogs? Doesn’t matter! Only if I want to blog I’ll blog to ensure quality content.
  4. I’ll talk about what I want to talk about! I don’t care if it’s something no-one cares about, or something that is only loosely tied to books. If it’s fun I’ll share it with you!

So I hope I’ll see you seen in a next blogpost.

Judging Book Covers by their International Covers || The Upside of Unrequited

Here we are again! Last week I did a post about the different international covers of Simon vs The Homosapiens Agenda, so now I had to do the next book by Becky Albertalli!

There were a lot less different covers for this book than for Simon, I guess that’s because it is a little less popular than our beautiful Simon. I personally really loved this book and I could really relate to Molly. This cover isn’t my favourite though, I like it, but I like Simon’s and Leah’s covers way better.

But Hollis soon realizes that falling in love with a king and being crowned queen may not be the happily ever after she thought it would be. And when she meets a commoner with the mysterious power to see right into her heart, she finds that the future she really wants is one that she never thought to imagine
