My most read authors
Hello, everyone! Today I'm going to share with you my Top 5 most read authors. But first of all, I'm now on Bloglovin' so for those of you who want to follow me via Bloglovin' now you can! :D (the link will be on the bottom of the page)

#1 - The first one may be a surprise. At least it was a surprise for me. I didn't imagine that I read so many books by Meg Cabot. But I read 16 of her books. Mainly the Princess Diaries Series but also her adult books. Which I liked a lot. But only during summer. Don't ask me why I'm a strange person and I know it.



#2 - Number 2 is our dear J.K. Rowling where I read all of her works. (I'm not talking about her works under her pseudonym R. Galbraith)


#3 - Next one is James Patterson. I thought that I read more books by him but according to Goodreads, I've only read 6 of his book.

#4 - Second, last most read author of…

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda (Becky Albertalli) - Review
Hello, everyone! Today I'm going to talk about Simon vs. One of my favourite books this month. I read it in not even 24 hours and I have to say that this does not happen often. Like never at all.

Goodreads Summary:

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.

With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly g…

Book series I'd love to see adapted

Hi, everyone!

In today's Blog post I'm going to talk about Book series that I'd like to see in theatres or in a TV Show.

#1 - So let's start with one of my favourite books of this years. It's a duology and I'm talking about Six of Crows. After a little research - I don't know about you but I like doing some research about books, or other things - I did not find any information about the Six of Crows series to be adapted into a film or a Tv Show.
I just want to see Ketterdam and the crew "live". Do you know what I mean?




#2 - This may be a bit controversial but I'd like to see the Passenger Duology on screen. I have to admit that I wasn't a big fan of the books. I found them so slow that I had difficulties to get into them. Nevertheless, this could be a good Tv Show which I am willing to watch and not only because I am a Doctor Who Fan. Seeing as this story had potential and if Bracken wouldn't have put that much description in her books t…

Get to know me

Facts about me
Hello, everyone! (I should probably change my greeting sometime ^^)
I figured that you don't know much about me so I thought why not tell you more about myself. These are going to be random facts that come into my mind. If you have specific questions feel free to ask them! :)
1. I'm really shy. I feel uneasy when I have to talk to strangers or people in general. I don't know why, but it has always been like this.
2. I don't eat while reading. Some people do but I absolutely hate eating in front of a book. Imagine eating crackers or any other snacks and then you have to change the page and *puff* there are greasy fingerprints on your book. Argh, I can't stand that! ^^
3. I only drink water while reading. For the exact same reason as above. I prefer water falling on my book than juice.
4. After every 3rd or 5th chapter (it depends on their length), I drink some water. To stay hydrated. Especially during these hot summer days, it is important to drink …

A darker shade of magic by V.E. Schwab - Spoiler-free Review

A darker shade of magic (V.E. Schwab) - Review
Hello! This week I'm presenting you my review of A Darker Shade Of Magic by V.E. Schwab.

Goodreads Summary:

Kell is one of the last Antari—magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel Londons; Red, Grey, White, and, once upon a time, Black.

Kell was raised in Arnes—Red London—and officially serves the Maresh Empire as an ambassador, travelling between the frequent bloody regime changes in White London and the court of George III in the dullest of Londons, the one without any magic left to see.

Unofficially, Kell is a smuggler, servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they'll never see. It's a defiant hobby with dangerous consequences, which Kell is now seeing firsthand.

After an exchange goes awry, Kell escapes to Grey London and runs into Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She first robs him, then saves him from a deadly enemy, and finally forces Kell to spirit …

Popular books that I haven't read - Part one

Hello, everyone!

So today I'm going to tell you what popular books I have yet to read. As I couldn't write a blog post on Saturday, this is going to be my Saturday blog post. Exceptionally I'm also going to post on Tuesday as I couldn't upload last Saturday.

1. The Help by Kathryn Stockett

After watching the movie I put this book on my Want to Read shelf but I never picked it up in a bookstore or a library. This means that I absolutely have to buy it some time because I really enjoyed the film.

 2. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

I'm sure that I'm going to regret that I haven't read the book earlier when I'm going to pick this one up. But first I have to own a copy in order to read it. So for all of the books that are going to be featured in this post, please don't ask me why I haven't read them yet because I honestly don't know why. *shame on me*
