I have finally done it! After numerous people telling me I should definitely read The Book Thief, I actually decided to listen and pick it up. I've heard so many good things about it, so to say my expectations were high.. Is probably an understatement? No, not true. I went in expecting nothing because.. me and reading historical fiction? Not that great of a combination..
It's December and I'm still quite.. shocked? People told me my pregnancy would fly by and I knew the year was already flying by but those two things combined? It's unreal, people. It really is. I feel like I should have at least three more months to get everything in order before even thinking about the holidays? Wishful thinking since that's not the amount of time I'm getting, haha. I can't be the only one though..
I wanted something light, romantic and hopefully funny. I was really keeping my fingers crossed for that latter one since my last attempt at a humorous read failed horribly. Did this novel succeed at fulfilling my needs? Only one way to find out!
Contemporary and LGBTQIA+? I could not resist - and I don't think any of you would expect me to either. The synopsis itself intrigued me as well but did this novel gave me everything I hoped for?
November was a month where I focused on the goals I set at the start of the year. I wanted to read five specific books - did I succeed? And how does this month's haul look? Find out here!
My fifth DNF ever since starting my blog - which is over one and a half year ago. I'd say that isn't all that bad but.. it's never fun to put a book on the DNF-shelf, right? Especially since I usually tell myself to read at least 100 pages before deciding to do so. With Oliver and Erica I didn't even make it to that mark. Why? Well, find out here.
It doesn't happen all that often since it's only the fifth time I'm deciding to consciously DNF a book but today is the day. Literally this morning, I decided I was going to add a fifth to the bunch. Luckily that doesn't equal a reading slump because I've been reading A LOT.
