Our month started off well with a long weekend in Stralsund and Rügen, where we celebrated Sebastian’s birthday. The weekend after, we hosted a party for all of his relatives, which was stressful but also a delicious success. We finally had more time to read in October, but unfortunately we spent most of it slogging through […]

September was even busier than August, but we had a lot more fun. Maraia’s parents came to visit for two weeks, so we spent a lot of time showing them around our area, with a 5-day trip to Edinburgh in the middle. We want to write a post about our adventures, so we’ll only show […]

August was a stressful month for both of us, so we can’t be too sorry it’s over. We didn’t have as much time for reading, TV shows, or movies as we did in July, but there were still some highlights for us. One of them was making room for books on what used to be […]

   Our month started off with a short but sweet visit from Celine. Despite two trains being canceled on her, she did eventually make it, and we spent a relaxing day and a half binging Criminal Minds, taking walks in between all the rain, and starting an extremely challenging 2000-piece puzzle. (A puzzle that still […]

June was a great month. We took advantage of the summer weather by reading on the balcony, taking walks in the park, eating lots of ice cream and even went on a little vacation. We did end up increasing our (well, Sebastian’s) TBR, but at least we kept up with blog posts!

May was an even better reading month for us than April, in terms of both quantity and quality. We only acquired eight new books between the two of us, three of which were gifts, so our TBR pile decreased once again. We also started writing Top Ten Tuesday posts again, which are always fun. Despite […]

April was a very successful reading month since I not only managed to finish ten books but also only got three new ones which means that I reduced my TBR pile by seven books – wooohooo! I’m really proud of resisting to buy any books at all in April – besides my two monthly audiobook […]

Today is a very special day for me: IT’S THE FIRST ANNIVERSARY OF MY BLOG THAT I DIDN’T FORGET 😀 But seriously: exactly 5 years ago, on January 29th in 2011, my very first blog post went online (it was a review of a book that only got 4/10, so maybe not such a great start […]

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a great New Year’s Eve – whether you were partying or cuddling up with a book like a true bookworm^^ – and I wish you all the best for 2016! May you read lots of amazing books, meet great (bookish) people and achieve all you goals you […]
