Finally Fall Book Tag

Sarah from Sarah The Reader tagged me to do the Finally Fall Book Tag which was originally created by Alina from Tall Tales. I know that fall is almost over, but since it is my favourite season and I’m not quite ready to let it go just yet, I thought I’d do the tag anyway.…

5 Reasons To Read More

In our fast-paced lives, reading and books are often forgotten. No one has time to sit down and read for a while. We are always on the go. And if by any chance we should ever have a minute to ourselves, we are often too tired to pick up a book. So we just turn…

Top Ten Tuesday: Unique Book Titles

It’s Tuesday! Which means it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday post from me. This week, The Broke and the Bookish prompted us to come up with ten unique book titles and for some reason I found it really hard to come up with a good list. I was about to say that I’m not much…

Autumn Readathon TBR

I’ve been following Mercedes Mills from MercysBookishMusings on Youtube for a while.

Bookish Thoughts on “The Hygge Holiday” by Rosie Blake

Ok. I… Um… yeah. Now you see why I normally don’t start writing a book review ten seconds after reading the last sentence. My thoughts still wrapped up in the story. But Rosie Blake’s The Hygge Holiday deserves an exception. It’s probably already obvious that I loved the book. And if I knew a stronger verb…

Catching Up on Children’s Literature (Age 7-12)

Growing up in Switzerland with Swiss-German as my mother tongue, I was naturally exposed to a lot of German children’s literature. Up until kindergarten, my parents would read me stories in Swiss-German and then German slipped in more and more the older I got. All the way up until I started high school and was…

Is “Chick Lit” bad literature?

One of the things I thought about when starting this blog was: what kind of books do I want to write about? Is this going to be “just” another Chick Lit blog, or am I going to try and write about classics like Great Expectations, Romeo and Juliet, Pride and Prejudice and so on. You…
