Book Review | May 2019

I read some books again! In the month of May I finished 6 books in total: 3 audio books and 3 physical copies. I loved some of them, some were a bit of a let down for different reasons. Here is my wrap up of all the books I read in the month of May.

Book Review | April 2019

I couldn’t pass up on doing a book review of course this month! Despite my doing Every Day May, I couldn’t pass up on sharing my monthly book review with you. I manage to read a total of 5 books last month: 3 physicial copies and 2 audiobooks. By reading audiobooks I am steadily increasing…

Reading Wrap Up | March 2019

I am finally showing you the books I read in March. March was a decent reading month for me. I finished 4 books in total, but because I got stock in a massive fantasy novel (that was nearly 1000 pages) I didn’t read as much as I feel I could have. I probably could have…

Book Review | February 2019

In the month of February I definitely read a few more books again and therefore we have another video today in which I tell you all about those. I read a total of 4 books in the month of February. That’s all the books I managed to finish, but I also started listening to Audio…

Book Review | January 2019

My first reading wrap up is coming your way today! I used to already write my reviews every month, but starting today I will be doing those reviews in video form. In January I read 3 books and in today’s video I will be talking you through each one.

Book Review | December 2018

Better late than never, but I still wanted to wrap up my reading of 2018 with some reviews of the last books I read in the year. This will also mark the last traditional book review blog post. As of next month, I will be doing these reviews in a video format, because I just…

Book Review | November 2018

Better late than never, but I did read a couple of books in November and I just hadn’t gotten around to reviewing for you just yet. I completely forgot to take pictures and with the dark days, I can’t really take any pictures later in the day. However, I tried my best and I hope…

Book Review | September 2018

I know we’re halfway through October, but I haven’t forgotten about my monthly reading update. I was a bit slow to start my reads in September. After my last read of August left me quite underwhelmed I felt like I didn’t know what I wanted to start reading next and so it took me some…

Book Review | July & August 2018

It’s long since been July & August, I totally realize that, but I hadn’t had time yet to post my review of my July & August reads. So this is that post. And since I read a total 11 books, more than I could fit in my opening picture. So there is a lot here,…

Book Review | June 2018

Just a few more days until my summer vacation starts, which means I will have finally more time to read. Because July was another meagre reading month. It’s not that I don’t want to read, I just haven’t had the energy. The last few weeks leading up to the summer vacation are always the busiest…

Book Review | May 2018

May was a very sad month for reading. I only finished two books. I did start another book, but I just didn’t get around to finishing it. So by now I’m 5 books behind on reaching my Goodreads goals, but I just haven’t felt that inspired by reading these past few months. I think I…

Book review | April 2018

I hadn’t yet updated you on the books I read in April, so it’s high time I did that. In April I read a total of 4 books, which was actually quite good seeing I was super busy. I spent all of April going from work to party to birthday and I spent little time…

Book Review | March 2018

I am a bit late to the game with this one, but better late than never. In March I was a) busy b) super tired and c) possibly had a bad flu without realizing it. Needless to say, I didn’t read as much as in February when I read a whooping 6 books. Still, I…

Book review | January 2018

2018 was not off to the amazing start reading wise as I had hoped. I selected this book at the end of 2017 and thought I’d finish it quickly. Unfortunately, this book wasn’t exactly what I had expected and so it was difficult to get much reading done. By now however, I have found a…

Book review | December 2017

December was a much better reading month than November. Granted, I only read two novels and the rest were easy to browse books that really don’t take too long to read cover to cover, but still. It was great and I especially tore through some more pages during my Christmas break. As a Christmas gift…

Book Review | November 2017

November was another month in which reading was scarce. I felt tired, a little sick at times and the reality of moving finally kicked in. I had little time to kick back and relax though because there was work and plenty of social engagements. So I had little time to read. The fact that I…

Book Review | October 2017

October wasn’t much of a reading month for me. October was all about the move and DIYing. So I saw more paint brushes, hammers and nails than I did books. But near the end of the month, after the move had been completed, I was able to squeeze in a little bit of reading. So…

Book review | September 2017

September wasn’t a great reading month for me. I only read 3 books. I had a lot of teaching to do and I felt knackered after those days. The fact that the books I read were so-so and not the more engaging stories ever, also make it harder to read more. So this was a…

Book review| July 2017

July is gone and so are 5 books that I read this past month. Yes, 5 book. Despite the first two weeks of the month being quite hectic, I ended up making up during the later weeks of the month because a) I have a week of vacation and b) I feel well-rested and energized…

Book review | June 2017

Almost half way through July, but better late than never: here is my June book review. I read another 4 books last month, which seems to be my average. So far I’ve read 26 books this year, which means I’m still right on track for completing my reading goal for this year. Last year around…

Book review | May 2017

May was another good reading month. I finished my 4th and final book of the month pretty much on the dot right on the 31st. And yes, I say 4, because I did read 4 books, but the 4th physical copy of the first book I read last month is now lent out. But that…

Book review | April 2017

Apologies for this blog post going up so late, but I’ve been a little jetlagged so my schedule has gone completely haywire. I still wanted to get this post up though, so better late than never. I read 4 books in the month of April and am still making good on that Goodreads goal of…

February 2017 book review

Even though February is the shortest month of the year, I still managed to finish roughly a book per week. I did cheat a little as one of these books I finished just last Sunday, but I didn’t want to wait with reviewing it until next month as it was my favorite read this month….

Book Review (January 2017)

The first month of 2017 is already over, which means it’s time to talk you through the books I read last month. I did a good job and read 5 books this month. I decided to not only delve into some fiction, but also picked up two non-fiction reads and am currently 1 – 2…

Book Review (December 2016)

I know, I know: 2017 is already well under way, but I have one last post for you to wrap up 2016. I hadn’t gotten round to reviewing the book I read in the last month of the year just yet. I read a total of 6 books. One of them being the worst reads…

Book review (November 2016)

Happy December! I know it’s only the very beginning of the month, but because November has been an excellent reading month for me, I decided to post my round up of the books I read last month asap. I already mentioned once before that fall is one of my favorite seasons to read, so I…

Combined book review (September 2016)

Despite my wish to play catch up with my 50 book reading challenge in 2016, I managed to not read that much extra in the month of September. I was still able to read a fair bit though, be it that the majority of my selections were easy breezy reads that were mostly fun to…

Combined book review #3

Time for a round up of some books that I’ve been reading this year up to this point. It may not seem like much, but in between I did read the full 6 book Mortal Instruments series, and I left out a few books that I didn’t really have much to say about. So in…

Book Review: J.D. Salinger – Catcher in the Rye

Spring break is over and that means that I’ve started reading again. After finally finishing Pride & Prejudice (which I took too long to read, so I can’t review it), I decided to pick up another classic book: Catcher in the Rye. First published in the early 1950s, this tale of adolescent madness is a…
