As we knew it would be, May was even more packed than April. Sebastian was training for his half-marathon (which he successfully completed!), we celebrated multiple family birthdays, ate delicious food at a food truck festival, and went on several excursions. We spent a day and a half in Maastricht, visited a friend in Aachen, […]

April was incredibly packed, and we had less time to read than we’d have liked. We only managed to buddy read three (short) books! Fortunately, we were mostly busy with fun things, so we can’t complain too much. We had two birthday parties (including Maraia’s first party with Sebastian’s entire family), a pizza dinner at […]

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!

There’s not much more we can say about February besides the fact that it was a pretty crap month. Maraia spent much of the month sick with the flu, while Sebastian spent that time trying not to catch it from her. Between illness and the Olympics, we read (and watched) much less than usual, and […]

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 […]

Over the past few days there has been a huge outrage about Goodreads‘ and Netgalley’s decisions to turn their backs on international readers and exclude us from the chance to participate in Giveaways and – which probably shocked bloggers even more – to shut down our access to eARCs from American publishers on Netgalley. Instead […]

November was yet another month that flew by, leaving us wondering what happened with all our time. We had several socializing events (that’s a lot for us ?), including dinner and walk through a Christmas market with our friends Sandy and Anja. We hosted Thanksgiving for Sebastian’s family, all of whom celebrated for the first […]

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 […]
