Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past week, been so busy with uni and life but I’m glad to be getting back into my reading routine - I’m hoping to finish #cityofashes before the end of March 😌
What are you currently reading? 💐 ...
¿Queda alguien por ahí? 🙋🏼♀️ Estoy poco activa últimamente pero prometo ponerme al día en poco tiempo. Espero que estéis leyendo mucho y muy bueno😊. Yo ayer visité una de esas tiendas que me encantan, librería de segunda mano. ¿Habéis ido alguna vez a una? ...

Ich wünsche euch einen wunderschönen guten Morgen ☀️ Die „Night- School“ Reihe habe ich vor ein paar Jahren richtig verschlungen. Leider hat es damals ewig gedauert bis der letzte Band erschienen ist und somit ist dieser immer noch ungelesen. Muss diese Reihe unbedingt nochmal Rereaden 😍
Welches Buch oder welche Reihe habt ihr schon mehrmals gelesen und warum? 🤔🙈 Wünsche euch einen schönen Sonntag 🥰
Last year I set some reading goals for the first time. Nr1: 50% of my reading should be #nonfiction ! I am doing pretty well with this: half of the book I read since January was indeed non-fiction. (If I say 4 from the 8 books.... well, that sounds less impressive, but hey, I am a proud #slowreader 🙊)
The second goal was re-visiting some of my old favorites while joining the #thereadiscoverproject of @lineisunderline but I have been very reluctant to actually start this project. I planned to re-read six of my all-time favorites to see if time and experience (oh, I am old, so old 😂) would give me a different understanding or reading experience, and bluntly said, to see if I would still like these books.
The books I will be reading again in 2019:
📗Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
📘American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis
📒Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson
📓Paradise Lost by John Milton
📗The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
📘Lord of the Flies by William Golding.
As it is almost April, let's finally start this journey! But to be on the safe side, let's start with the one which I am the least attached too: Lord of the Flies. 😅 I read it first time when I was 12-13 (oh yeah, I grew up in a family which did not believe in the separation of children/adult stories. 🤷 The basic rule was that I could read and watch nearly anything until I was willing to discuss it over dinner or Sunday walks.Yes, I read Justine by the Marquis de Sade at age 11. Weird, I know! But it's even weirder that my mom drew the line by Basic Instinct. That movie was totally off-limits! Sometimes I wonder how this fact played into me writing my bachelor's thesis on Paul Verhoeven. 🤔)
I remember #LordoftheFlies very vividly, the images really stuck to me over the years. I also remember the huge impact it had on me. I read it during summer holiday, and by now, the book simply connected in my mind to hours spent lazying in our garden and wondering what *I* would have done in the place of the boys. So I am curious to see how I experience it 15 years later.
And what about Imperial Bedrooms, you ask? Well, that was just ridiculously cheap! 😍

Good morning book friends!! The sun is shining now all I need is nice weather. I post alot with the "Harry Potter" series but it's one of those book series that will always have a place in my heart. This series is one of those series that I love rereading.
What's one book series that you love to reread?
**Book Review** This was a reread for me so that I can continue on with the series. Remember that show Roswell? The original one, not thar weird shit that just came out. I looooved that show! After the first season it wasn’t amazing, but I still loved it and it brings back happy nostalgic feelings. This book is like that show. Alien falls in love with human and the whole push and pull of him saying he can’t be with her etc. Although thankfully it heads in a more X-men direction than the show did. I had a better time with this one the second time around. This is not literary fiction people, but it is very entertaining and I really enjoyed my reread! Sometimes I wanted to slap the characters around and there some parts in it that didn’t feel organic to the story, but overall it was good times! I gave my reread ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ which is actually a star up from the first time I read it. 😁 #bookstagram#booknerd#bibliophile#booknerdigans#bookreview#reread#4starread#yascifi#luxbookseries#bookseries#jenniferlarmentrout ...
My dad posted about his interest in this book and it caught my attention because I recently attended a webinar led by its author. #SohrabAhmari is an op-ed editor for the New York Post. He’s also an Iranian-American immigrant who found his way to the Catholic faith through an authentic search for truth, guidance, fulfillment, and belonging. I’ve shared a few quotes from #FromFireByWater recently in my stories and posts. It’s a fairly easy read, but covers big ideas and issues. In brief, a combination of the Gospel, the Incarnation, Christ’s Passion, and the liturgy drew Sohrab to Catholicism.
If you’re a convert, what drew you to the Catholic faith?
