What I Read – What I Am

I hope you had a cozy holiday season with breakfasts in bed, curled up with a book – doing whatever and with whomever fills up your soul. As always – may the new year bring you subtle meanings, clever turns of phrase and a rainbow of exhilarating character arcs! What a glorious year 2018 was!…

Books and Coffee – A Modern Love Story

Nothings stops me in my tracks as often as a gorgeous photo of a book beside a steaming cup of coffee. Kudos to all the patient souls who not only take a brief snap of their cozy moment, but take time to set it up in a lavishly bookish way. You have all been an…

A Year in Books

Happy New Year, fellow book nerds and stray literati! May it bring you subtle meanings, clever turns of phrase and a rainbow of exhilarating character arcs! One of my favourite things to do on the 1st of January (after strolling around a silent hangover-battling city and listening to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra New Year’s Concert…

All I Want For Christmas

As the world bustled in preparation for the warm conviviality of Christmas Eve, I quite literally headed into a bout of migraine. Before the familiar dizziness, pain and nausea managed to settle in, I had enough time to obsess and panic over my ruined plans. It’s not fair, is it – planning for months a…

Underrated Books To Read And Love

It’s been a while since I have done a Top Ten Tuesday post. What luck that the topic for this week  – Books I Enjoyed That Have Under 2000 Goodreads Ratings – should be so fun and so different! (Also, tbh I love that I don’t have to rattle my brains to figure out what books…

Pocketbook Ultra 650 eReader Review (long read)

The Season of Love for Reading

Disclaimer: I will talk about the seasons today. Please, don’t think we’ve come to a breaking point in our relationship, so much so that we have to talk weather. That is not everything I have to say to you, I promise!  Autumn. Can you think of a better time in the year to snuggle on the…

Top 10 Tuesday – Characters I Didn’t Click With

This week’s Tuesday Top 10, courtesy of Lauren and Julia at The Broke and the Bookish  provide ample opportunities to vent. All those times a character made you abandon a book you otherwise enjoyed; all those everyone-loves-me fictional people, who bored you to death; all those heroines you wanted to squeeze the last breath out of in a painful,…

Top 10 Tuesday – Authors I’ve Read The Most Books From

This week’s Tuesday Top 10, hosted as usual by Lauren and Julia at The Broke and the Bookish is such a no-brainer that I bet I can write it in less than ten minutes. Three, two, one – go! (Just let me open Goodreads). I am pretty certain which three names will pop up at the top, since I devoured…
