So it’s August. Time is literally floating by. I got to do a lot of fun things in August, like going on trips with my friends, but I’m also going on vacation to GRAN CANARIA! It’s the first time I’m going on vacation outside of the little country I live in – the Netherlands, and it’s also the first time I’ll be on a plane. I’m so excited and I literally can’t wait. I hope August will be as good as a reading month as July, but I’m starting off small and I want to read three amazing books, and one re-read! Let’s start off with the reread and continue further on.
The summer vacation is starting and besides working I’ve got a lot of free time, which means: BOOKS! I feel like I’m on a roll and thank God – I’ve been in a reading slump way too long. So you guys want to see which books I really want to read in July?
Bloggingwise, September has been a greatful month! I’ve had more visitors than I’ve ever had and I reached a 100 WordPress followers (which at the moment is 113 followers – I know, it’s growing SO FAST!). On the otherside, it’s been a sad month book wise. School started again and so did my internship and I’m simply way too busy with that. Which is unfortunate because I just came out of my reading slump and I really want to read, but when I arrive back home from work I’m or way too busy with homework or way to tired to read.. and I really pity that. I hope October will be a better month – I don’t think it will, but we can at least hope, right? So let’s dive into the Wrap Up/TBR.
After I told my friend Melissa about my discussion post (The Never Ending Battle of Paperbacks vs Hardcovers), Melissa came with the idea to do another collab. We love working together (Story Sound Saturday), so the idea was to also do a post on Sunday! The longer we were discussing the post, the more ideas we came up with and the more excited we got! We want to make an interactive post and that you, readers, join is in our ‘discussions/rants’ on the subjects that we post every Sunday from now on. This will be book related (book struggles), but also real life struggles. We come up with a thesis, write our opinion, ask your opinion in the comments and we hope we can all discuss about it.
This way, you get more insights and perhaps we will think more about certain subjects so that you come across new discoveries. In addition, the interactive portion seemed just super fun. Connecting with other readers and talk about books and more .. We are wondering what you’re going to think of it!
I know this post has a stupid title but I couldn’t think of anything different. I really want to talk about TBR piles and the problem we all got with them: they’re huge. Sometimes I try to deny it, but I have to give in. I have way too much books on my TBR pile, I mean, when I go to my Goodreads account and go to my shelves.. my ‘to-be-read’ shelf has 229 books! Obviously we all want to read all the books that excist in the world (well.. not all of them but you get the idea) but we have to be realistic. So I’m going to give you some tips on how to knock off some titles of your TBR pile.
Time flies when you’re having fun.. especially in the summer! It was a bummer I had a reading slump for most of the month, but since last week I started reading again and I’m on a roll! So let me tell you guys what I’ve read, shall we?
It’s that time of the year again. I officialy have a reading slump. At least once a year us readers suffer from a reading slump and man, I hate those! I want to read but I can’t get myself to do it. I still read four books (I thought it was five but nope, only four) this month, so let me tell you which ones.
