March was a great month for us! Our friend Steffi visited us at the beginning of the month, and then we spent a nice day at a nearby zoo. For the second half of the month, we were on vacation, which gave us lots of time to read – finally!
Somehow January is already over, even though 2017 still feels like yesterday. We had a busy month, trying to catch up on everything we didn’t get to in December, family obligations, and trying to finish all our Christmas chocolate before we start (non-religiously) participating in Lent. We also went to see a live production of […]
What a year! 2017 brought with it a lot of change, and despite the fact that it was kind of a crappy year on global scale, for us personally it was one of our best years ever. We finally got to be together, we traveled to and explored so many new places, we ate and […]
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 […]
When I look at the number of books I’ve read last month I can’t help feeling like I’ve failed a little bit when it comes to reading and listening to audiobooks but looking at page numbers and minutes March wasn’t actually that bad. Four out of the six books I’ve finished were quite massive and […]
This month’s roundup is going to be super long – but that’s not because I read so many books last month, it’s because I was too lazy to write a January roundup so that this one covers both January and February. That’s good for me because the first month in 2017 was actually quite embarrassing […]
