wrap-up: may 2017

After I missed posting about my April wrap-up, I couldn’t pass the chance in sharing the books I’ve read this month. After preparing for the release of A Court of Wings and Ruin – aka a reread of A Court of Mist and Fury – was extremely thrilled to read above mentioned book. So my whole month of May was originally dedicated to the book I waited so long for. Still I managed to read 6 books in total which makes my quite happy considering the fact that my average goal is to read 3 books. But now, without further ado, here are the books as well as some thoughts on them:

holiday reading: april 2017

When it comes to packing books for my holidays, I endure the biggest struggles when it comes to books. How many books am I likely to read? Which ones will be fitting my holiday mood the best? Are these really enough or do I need to bring half of my shelves? Most of the time I pack 3 to 4 books and most of the times these aren’t enough (depending on which kind of holiday I’m going).

For April I’ll be on a more or less relaxing one over the week before easter. The actual plan was going skiing – so I only have time to read in the evening, when coming back to the house I’ll be staying.

I will now have a whole week to read without interruptions.

wrap-up: march 2017

Another post within two days and on a sunday? Impossible! Well … I normally don’t participate in a wrap-up of books I read in a month. But since things are going better than expected when it comes to reading, I might as well show you what I managed to do! So yes, an unpredicted post! But anyways – I wanted to read 3 books in March but finished 5 in the end. My goal is currently really low because of work – I have an incredible amount of hours per week even though I’m “only” working in an office – but at the same time I managed to read 14 books this year with a total goal of 30 for 2017. Looking at this rate – almost the half in 3 months! – I might be able to read more than I initially thought. But I’ll be stopping right here talking about work and goals and instead show you which books I finished last month:
