The First BookHaul of 2019!

book haul

Many people begin the new year with clearing their bookshelves, to purge and make room for all the new releases of 2019. I, however, am still not ready to give away my books.

Besides, beginning the new year with a book haul, instead of an unhaul is so much more pleasurable! And that is what we are doing today.

Since my last haul in July 2018, I’ve accumulated another 17 books, featured below:

An Overly Ambitious TBR | January 2019

I shall start this year strong! Hence, I picked a total of 9 (yes, you heard me right – NINE) books to read in January. It’s been a while since I was able to read more than 6 books per month, and my internship started this week. But I believe in myself! And big books don’t scare me at all. (well.. maybe a little bit).

Sadly, many new books released in January won’t arrive in time for me to read them all in January. They will just have to queue for the next month’s TBR.

Most Anticipated Releases | January 2019

This year is going to have some of the most anticipated books on my list. To say that I’m excited would be an understatement. Just for the month of January, I managed to compile a list of 12 books that I’m looking forward to.

2019 Reading Goals ||”And now we welcome the New Year, full of things that have never been”

It is again that time of the year when all goals seem achievable and people are excited to make plans for the future. I didn’t want to be an exception to this rule. Let’s be honest, no one likes to be the black sheep in the herd.

I even tried to make my Reading Goals to look as appealing as possible, in the desperate belief that the visuals will help me to stay on track throughout the whole year, and not just January!

2018 Wrap Up || Reading Stats and Favorite Books

That is it! 2018 is officially over!

There were new events, long working hours, traveling, books, and many changes. It was by far one of the best years in a long time and I wish 2019 would be just as good, and I will try to make it even better.

2018 was a good year for personal growth, but I completely neglected my blog and books. I barely managed to complete my GoodReads reading goal on time with a total of 51 books. (Actually, 52 as this post goes live, as I managed to power through the 1st book in the His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman!)  Here you can see the full list of books I read in 2018!

June & July Wrap Up [2018] | Throne of Glass Obsession!

JUNE & JULY WRAP UP

It is the 12th of August as I am writing this and I’ve come to realize that: 

arrow 2

(A) the summer is almost over! There is only August left and, while I happen to live a walking distance from the beach, I’ve only gone a couple of times this year and I have to remedy this as soon as possible!

(B) I’ve been far more into fantasy this summer with a comparison to last year when all I practically read were contemporary and literary fiction all day every day. And

(C) Throne of Glass is actually an AMAZING SERIES WITH A LOT OF ACTION, DRAMA & BETRAYALS. Who would have thought that I’d fall in love with Throne of Glass, after absolutely hating the Court of Thorns and Roses?! It’s a mystery for me too.

*The list could go on and on. I love lists. But who doesn’t?

Stationary Book Tag

stationary book tag

As a true and proud bookworm, I am in love with all kind of STATIONARIES. Cute ones, black ones, simple and professional, or fun and colorful – I need them all and I need them now! Before you start accusing me of uncontrollable purchase of pens, pencils, notebooks and sticky notes, let’s clarify that I am actually not a hoarder (Books don’t count. Don’t look at my bookshelves! Don’t do it!).

I love watching YouTube videos about stationaries and DIYs but never actually get around to buy or try things myself. Which is (A) GOOD because it saves me tons of money, and (B) BAD because I rarely try new things. Continue reading “Stationary Book Tag”

Most Anticipated Releases | July 2018

most anticipated July 2018

Months are flying so quickly! Just “yesterday” I posted my most anticipated releases for the month of June and now it’s already the 1st of July. Somehow time has been escaping me this year. Any tips on how to make it go slower? *idea for a new blog post *wink*

July will be a great month because my most anticipated book of the year – Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen will be coming out on July 17th and I was incredibly lucky to receive advanced readers’ copy of this book! Continue reading “Most Anticipated Releases | July 2018”
