Read #7 July 2015

I’ve read quite a few books this past month: nine to be precise! Three of them were volumes of the Chronicles of Narnia, so that probably explains the high number of books. Today I’m going to show you what other books I read and what I thought of them. Continue reading “Read #7 July 2015”

All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Oh boy, I’m so terribly late with writing and uploading my reviews! But this is a rather special book: it is the one that completed my Goodreads Reading Challenge! Yeah, you heard that right! I did set my aim quite low (considering I hadn’t really read much for a few years), but it feels good to have completed something. Also, All The Bright Places was a really lovely – sad, but lovely – read! Continue reading “All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven”

My Summer TBR Update

In June I posted this blog post on my Summer TBR: all the books I intended to read during the summer months (June, July and August). I thought it would be fun to do two updates before the end of summer, at the start of each new month, and tell you how my TBR is coming along! Continue reading “My Summer TBR Update”

Goodreads Challenge Finished!

Wow, I can’t believe it. I just finished my Goodreads reading challenge. Okay, I set it at 30 books, which is below the average on Goodreads, but one year ago I wouldn’t even have read one book a month, and now I’ve read 30 in six months and three days. So I think it’s time for looking back on the developments of the last six months Continue reading “Goodreads Challenge Finished!”

The Coffee Book Tag & The 100th Blog Post!

Yeah, I did it! This post is going to be the 100th blog post on Tale of the Lime Tree. I’ve been loving blogging so far and I hope to continue to post fairly regularly in the future. To celebrate this milestone I’m going to answer some questions of the Coffee Book Tag. So grab yourself some coffee (tea is allowed as well …) and relax! Continue reading “The Coffee Book Tag & The 100th Blog Post!”

My Summer TBR

Summer is upon us and I’m really looking forward to reading in the sunshine. I thought it might be nice to put together a Summer TBR as a kind of mini challenge. Over the last few weeks I bought quite a few novels, so this way I hope to make sure I’m reading them as soon as possible (and not buying more books instead). Want to see what’s on the list? Continue reading “My Summer TBR”

From Rowling to Pooh – New Books

I’ve got some new books to show you! I recently purchased three new books at BookDepository.com, but I also bought two books at the bookshop AND received and borrowed some books. Want to see what’s new on my TBR list? Continue reading “From Rowling to Pooh – New Books”
